Data Warehousing in the Cloud - Part 1 [57437]
By Keith Laker

Keith writes, "Data warehouses are currently going through two very significant transformations that have the potential to drive significant levels of business innovation:

The first area of transformation is the drive to increase overall agility. The vast majority of IT teams are experiencing a rapid increase demand for data. Business teams want access to more and more historical data whilst at the same time, data scientists and business analysts are exploring ways to introduce new data streams into the warehouse to enrich existing analysis as well as drive new areas of analysis. This rapid expansion in data volumes and sources means that IT teams need to invest more time and effort ensuring that query performance remains consistent and they need to provision more and more environments (data sandboxes) for individual teams so that they can validate the business value of new data sets..."

6 Dangers Of 'Frankensteining' Your Cloud Environment [57242]
By Margaret Harrist

Margaret writes in Forbes, "Many companies move incrementally to the cloud, with different groups chasing their own dream of simplicity and lower costs using department budgets and decision-making - but instead the overall organization finds itself living with a monster of kludged-together parts that keep the IT department (yet again) focused on maintenance rather than innovation..."

'Cloud helps you to simplify, but it does not change the laws of physics,' says Jon Chorley, Oracle chief sustainability officer and group vice president of supply chain management product strategy. 'The more unrelated elements you have in a system, the more issues and problems you'll have in the implementation and operation - and the more headaches you'll face every time you do an update.'

OpenWorld gives Oracle the opportunity to showcase the latest technology, products, and future directions of this huge company. It also creates a nexus of customers, prospects, press, and analysts who converge to study the company and its plans.

Why Oracle Cloud Is A Better Choice Than AWS Or Azure [57007]
By Margaret Lindquist

Margaret writes in Forbes, "Oracle is more than just a technology provider - it is a trusted advisor that can help businesses transition their IT stack to the cloud and take the greatest possible advantage of that move.

Customers' biggest requirement is the need for choice, said Oracle Vice President of Cloud Platform Ashish Mohindroo during an Oracle OpenWorld 2016 session on digital disruption.
