In midsize and large organizations, critical business processing continues to depend on relational databases including Microsoft® SQL Server. While new tools like Hadoop help businesses analyze oceans of Big Data, conventional relational-database management systems (RDBMS) remain the backbone for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytic processing (OLAP), and mixed OLTP/OLAP workloads.
What if you could reduce the cost of running Oracle databases and improve database performance at the same time? What would it mean to your enterprise and your IT operations?
Oracle databases play a critical role in many enterprises. They’re the engines that drive critical online transaction (OLTP) and online analytical (OLAP) processing applications, the lifeblood of the business. These databases also create a unique challenge for IT leaders charged with improving productivity and driving new revenue opportunities while simultaneously reducing costs.
For most enterprises, 60 to 73 percent of enterprise data goes unused for business-intelligence (BI) and analytics efforts, according to Forrester.1
Data that is out of sight or out of date creates a competitive blind spot for businesses today. With customer demands, economic changes, and new trends and technologies evolving at a dizzying pace, staying relevant — not to mention competitive — requires that businesses access all available BI to be ?exible and agile. Businesses must have quick access to data that is comprehensive, accurate, current, and consumable in real time. A traditional infrastructure, where the online analytical processing (OLAP) platform and the online transaction processing (OLTP) platform are separate, makes ?exibility and agility difficult to achieve.
When a business has accurate, current data in hand, it can make real-time data-driven business decisions so that it can stay relevant and competitive, or even be a disruptor in its industry. One way that a busines

Companies spend millions of dollars every year on building data warehouses, buying business intelligence (BI) software tools and managing their analytic processes in the hope of gaining consumer insight and winning market share. Yet, many companies fail to realize the full benefits of their technology investments because they are hamstrung by the layers of expertise and the complexity of technology tools needed to integrate various data warehouses and associated tools within their existing analytic environments. Since analysis is only as good as the accessibility, timeliness and accuracy of the information being analyzed, the interoperability of any data warehouse with any analytic environment is essential to achieving insightful, actionable analysis and making better decisions.
