For years, businesses have struggled to make effective use of the data they have been collecting. Most businesses have several disparate databases storing a variety of data, but when it’s time to analyze and visualize that data, in an attempt to make business decisions, they feel stuck. Analyzing and visualizing data to find valuable insights is a far more complicated task than storing said data and can require a multitude of expensive software assets. Luckily, Oracle has created a complete solution for those looking to store, compile, analyze and visualize data–Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW). ADW includes a super fast database, GoldenGate and Data Integrator for all your data integration needs, a variety of analytical algorithms for advanced analytics and 50 Oracle Data Visualization licenses which allow you to create visually appealing content for business users in minutes.
Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW)
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse provides an easy-to-use and fully autonomous database that scales elastically, delivers fast query performance and is able to self-patch, allowing your team to spend less time on maintenance and more time analyzing and visualizing data. When you create an Autonomous Data Warehouse database, you can deploy it to one of two infrastructure platforms:
Serverless – a simple and elastic deployment choice. Oracle autonomously operates all aspects of the database life cycle from database placement to backups and updates.
Dedicated – a private cloud in public cloud deployment choice. A completely dedicated compute, storage, network and database service for only a single tenant. Dedicated deployment provides for the highest levels of security isolation and governance. The customer has customizable operational policies to guide Autonomous Operations for workload placement, workload optimization, update scheduling, availability level, over provisioning and peak usage.
When you purchase a new Data Warehouse, your first thought should be “how will I integrate my data?” Oracle had the same first thought, so they included GoldenGate with Autonomous Data Warehouse.
Oracle GoldenGate is a comprehensive software for real-time data integration and replication in heterogeneous IT environments. The product set enables high availability solutions, real-time data integration, transactional change data capture, data replication, transformations, and verification between operational and analytical enterprise systems.
Oracle Data Integrator (ODI)
If your business is looking to run high-volume, high-performance batch loads on your new Autonomous Data Warehouse, Oracle has also included a free year of ODI. This is a great way to start testing more complicated data transformation tasks and really flex the muscles of your Autonomous Data Warehouse. The latest version of ODI provides superior developer productivity and improved user experience with a redesigned flow-based declarative user interface and deeper integration with GoldenGate.
Powerful In-Database Machine Learning and Analytics
ADW’s built-in algorithms allow you to automatically sift through large amounts of data to find hidden patterns, discover new insights and make predictions. Unlike other solutions that require extracting large data sets in application servers, ADW performs all analysis in the database for faster and more secure analyses.
Oracle Data Visualization
With Oracle Data Visualization, your business can discover the insights hidden in your data, with simple, but powerful visuals. Oracle Data Visualization is easy to use, yet powerful enough to perform advanced calculations. Here’s what you’ll be able to do with Oracle Data Visualization:
- Automatically visualize data as you drag and drop attributes, charts, and graphs
- Change layouts to present new insights
- Answer questions quickly with online search and guided navigation
- Empower everyone in your organization to uncover the value in the data
- Capture insights are visual stories
- Save story points (snapshots of the analytical moment-in-time)
- Add comments to highlight key discoveries
- Transform discussions with secure, dynamic collaboration
- Improve decision-making and promote faster action
The best part of all is that Data Visualization is included with the purchase of an Oracle Autonomous Datawarehouse. When you invest in ADW, you are getting more than just a place to store your data, you are getting a complete data analysis solution. With Autonomous Data Warehouse + Advanced Analytics + GoldenGate + Oracle Data Integrator + Data Visualization, you will be well on your way to making smarter business decisions because you’ll be making sense of your data!
