New system combines Oracle’s Business Intelligence Foundation with visualisation capabilities and performance optimisations
Oracle has launched its Exalytics Business Intelligence Machine, an in-memory hardware and software system engineered to run faster analytics to provide real-time speed-of-thought visual analysis.
Oracle said with Exalytics, organisations can make decisions faster in rapidly shifting business conditions, while broadening user adoption of business intelligence (BI) through the introduction of interactive visualisation capabilities.
With the new system, planning applications can be scaled across the enterprise with faster, more accurate planning cycles and organisations can extend their BI initiatives to modeling, planning, forecasting, and predictive analytics, said the company.
Oracle said the new system combines Oracle’s Business Intelligence Foundation with enhanced visualisation capabilities and performance optimisations, an optimised version of the Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database with analytic extensions, and a highly scalable Oracle server designed for in-memory BI.
Exalytics is disigned as a single vendor system featuring the widely used Oracle BI and in-memory database software configured for hardware designed, built and supported by Oracle to minimise integration cost, time and effort as well as on-going maintenance, said the company.
Exalytics comprises Oracle’s Sun Fire server; Oracle BI Foundation software including Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition and Oracle Essbase; and Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database for Exalytic.
Oracle said Exalytics delivers innovative capabilities spanning: speed-of-thought interactive visualisation; an immersive mobile experience for Apple iPad users that can scale to many thousands of mobile users, making analysis available to everyone, anywhere; and adaptive in-memory technology.
Exalytics accesses heterogeneous data sources, optimised for Oracle Exadata and delivers extreme performance for reporting, visual analysis, planning, forecasting and mobile deployments, said the company.
