Five Minute Briefing - Oracle December 16, 2015
What's ahead for 2016 in terms of cloud, IoT, big data, analytics, and open source technologies? IT executives gaze into their crystal balls, and weigh in on the upcoming challenges and opportunities ahead in the next year - and beyond.
Dataguise, provider of data-centric security solutions for detecting and protecting confidential information, is now securing relational databases such as Oracle and SQL Server, as well as Teradata data warehouses, deployed on the Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure. Now Azure users can utilize big data and cloud technologies for improved business intelligence and performance.
Moving infrastructure, databases, or software into the cloud is no longer a bleeding edge decision. Many organizations have implemented this successfully with great benefits, and more continue to do so. It was not that long ago that we started learning about cloud technologies and capabilities. Technologists listened to webinars and read about the possibilities of such a paradigm shift with cynicism. It sounded great, but what about the practicalities, cost, and risk? The only organizations that seemed to embrace this new landscape were technology companies, while the rest of us stood on the sidelines watching and, on occasion, snickering. We thought nothing would ever replace our data centers. It appears we were wrong … it's time to embrace the paradigm shift.
THINK ABOUT IT
It is often said that the only constant is change. For data executives and professionals, the coming year will only bring a lot more of it. Developments as diverse as cloud, big data, real time, NoSQL, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue to reshape enterprise data operations and opportunities as we know them. Here are 16 trends that will shape the enterprise data landscape in 2016.
