Earlier in the week at Oracle’s annual OpenWorld conference, the IT giant unveiled its newest solution: Oracle Cloud Platform for Big Data. According to the company: “New services accelerate time to insight and enable customers to generate value.” Oracle now offers one of the world’s most complete Platform as a Service portfolios, and the new offering is uniquely positioned to enable users to maximize the value of their data and accelerate time-to-insight.
Here’s an outline of the four new services included in the platform:
- Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service: Enables customers to automate, streamline, and guide the error-prone process of data ingestion, preparation, repair, enrichment, and governance without costly manual intervention. With the Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service and its innovative recommendation engine, data preparation time and costs are reduced to a fraction of that of traditional methods.

It meets the requirements of today’s enterprise applications that need simple, fast, flexible, reliable operations on high volumes of data with minimal administration.
These new tools help to round out Oracle’s Big Data Cloud Service and Big Data SQL Cloud Service, forming a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for Big Data in the cloud that enables users to integrate, aggregate, prepare and discover real-time insights from all of their data sources.
Oracle’s President Thomas Kurian explains: “Big Data is helping customers address critical areas: improving customer experience, reducing churn, streamlining operations and building Internet of Things applications.
