Five Minute Briefing - October 14, 2015
At Strata + Hadoop World 2015, Attunity announced the release of Attunity Replicate Express, a downloadable edition of its data replication and loading software. The solution, which answers a growing demand for more accessible real-time big data analytics, is freely available to download online. The new solution supports ingesting data to and from Oracle, SQL Server, and Hadoop Data Lakes for test and development environments.
Informatica has introduced a new data management platform designed to handle data at any speed across today's hybrid IT environments, both cloud and on-premise. The new release, Informatica 10, provides enhancements across three core components - Informatica PowerCenter 10, Informatica Data Quality 10 and Informatica Data Integration Hub 10, and offers specific certified optimizations for Oracle Exadata, Oracle SuperCluster, SAP HANA, and HP Vertica.
The topics of resilience and change have been on my mind a lot lately for a variety of reasons. First, IT is always at the center of technology change, so that's nothing new. We must continually learn and keep abreast of new technology and trends before they even materialize. Second, I am an IT leader in the energy industry, and when one is at the mercy of natural resource supply and demand, there will be peaks and valleys in production and financial performance over the years. With this latest dip in energy prices, I sense a different perspective—one of working smarter and more efficiently, emphasizing innovation, and analyzing decisions with an enterprise perspective of what is right for the company at this time, not just IT.
THINK ABOUT IT
There's unrelenting pressure on businesses to compete on analytics and to be able to anticipate customer needs and trends ahead of the curve. Enterprises are looking to expand BI and analytics capabilities as far and wide as technologies and budgets will allow them to go. As a result, the continuing advance of analytic capabilities across the enterprise has reached a "tipping point."
