Oracle has unveiled the Oracle Exalytics Business Intelligence Machine, the industry’s first in-memory hardware and software system engineered to run analytics faster than ever, provide real-time speed-of-thought visual analysis, and enable new types of analytic applications.
Oracle Exalytics enables organisations to make decisions faster in the context of rapidly shifting business conditions while broadening user adoption of business intelligence (BI) though the introduction of interactive visualisation capabilities that make every user an analyst.
Organisations will be able to extend their BI initiatives beyond reporting and dashboards to modeling, planning, forecasting, and predictive analytics. Planning applications can be scaled across the enterprise with faster, more accurate planning cycles.
This new system combines Oracle’s proven Business Intelligence Foundation with enhanced visualisation capabilities and performance optimisations, an optimised version of the industry-leading Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database with analytic extensions, and a highly scalable Oracle server designed specifically for in-memory business intelligence.
“The high performance delivered by the Oracle Exalytics Business Intelligence and Oracle Exadata machines will allow our customers in the automotive industry to fluidly interact with our data by providing response times that will not impede the analytic process,” said Kelly Garcia, vice president of Production and Business Intelligence Technologies, Polk.
“The new Trellis charts will enable us to present massive amounts of data to our customers on a single page. That will allow them to see performance across all of their segments at once, quickly identify segments that are up or down and drill into the details behind that performance.”
