Five Minute Briefing - Oracle
March 23, 2016
Storage requirements are growing by leaps and bounds, and more organizations are turning to cloud computing to manage the load. However, cloud isn't necessarily seen as the best approach to data storage bursting—rather, it's mainly being used for backup and for hosting development and test environments, according to a new survey.
Oracle recently announced its Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) InfiniBand Fabric, which will be available in Q2 2016. The new software-defined networking-enabled, converged fabric has been introduced to increase application performance so customers can more quickly respond to changing business demands.
The Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) has represented the voice of Oracle technologists and professionals for more than 20 years, and we are so proud of how our community has not just grown but maintained its adaptive approach that centers on peer-to-peer education and know-how. We hope that you share our sense of pride as we celebrate the technology community's marquee event: COLLABORATE 16-IOUG Forum.
THINK ABOUT IT
Few of us working in the software industry would dispute that agile methodologies represent a superior approach to older waterfall-style development methods. However, many software developers would agree that older enterprise-level processes often interact poorly with the agile methodology, and long for agility at the enterprise level. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) provides a recipe for adopting agile principles at the enterprise level.
