Engineered Systems

Recently, Oracle CEO Mark Hurd announced Oracle sold its 10,000th engineered system. How significant is that milestone?

Here, hear more from Fowler about what's next in engineered systems. Plus, find out from other thought leaders about why modern business requires a high-performance infrastructure.

How We're Wired

"We now live in a world where we can use modern communications tools to start thinking out loud, in front of other people. This not only crystalizes our thoughts, but it also puts us in contact with other people and resources that we didn't know existed. This essentially explodes out our intellectual resources beyond what they've ever been before," says Clive Thompson, author of Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better.

Zero-Latency Business Intelligence?

"To achieve real-time business intelligence, businesses need an IT infrastructure that can load and transfer data faster with zero latency, process the data faster with parallel processing capability, and provide instant visuals for in-depth analysis. Oracle engineered systems provide the features necessary to enable these capabilities," says Satyendra Kumar Pasalapudi, associate practice director at Apps Associates and an Oracle ACE.
