Oracle has introduced an update to Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 4.
Cloud is being embraced strongly at Oracle. That is the message loud and clear from the company, which brought its CloudWorld to New York City on January 13. During the event, which drew customers, analysts, and thought leaders, Oracle offered an overview of its cloud strategy and the progress the company has made thus far in addressing consumers and enterprise constituents in the cloud. Oracle's cloud strategy is very simple, said Thomas Kurian, president, Oracle Product Development. The idea is to bring Oracle's business applications, technology, software, database, middleware, analytic tools and infrastructure "to any customer anywhere in the world through the internet browser."
THINK ABOUT IT
In 2014, we continued to watch big data enable all things "big" about data and its business analytics capabilities. We also saw the emergence (and early acceptance) of Hadoop Version 2 as a data operating platform, with cornerstones of YARN (Yet Another Resource Negotiator) and HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System). In 2015, the mainstream adoption with enterprise data strategies and acceptance of the data lake will continue as data management and governance practices provide further clarity. The cautionary tale of 2014 to ensure business outcomes drive big data adoption, rather than the hype of previous years, will likewise continue.
