Going Beyond Big Data [41304]
A Conversation with Tara Robert

March is Influencer month on the Oracle Social Spotlight blog! Today's influencer is data guru Tara Roberts, Vice President of Oracle Data Cloud.

"Tara Roberts: Big data is meaningless unless businesses have a way to 1) extract important signals from the noise and 2) have the ability to 'act on' those insights to target, personalize and measure every customer interaction.

By David Dorf

David Dorf writes, "Don't get me wrong; I think mobile has and will continue to have a huge impact to the retail industry.

If the chef neglects the side dishes the meal won't be ruined, but the converse is not true..."

By Madhu Nair

Oracle CEO Mark Hurd shares his thoughts on the ever-evolving digital landscape

"We all know that the demographic of the global workforce is changing but do you realize how fast? As Oracle CEO Mark Hurd points out, in an Oracle Profit Magazine interview this month, 'In the next eight years, 40 percent of everybody working in the US can retire.
