See how Oracle Big Data SQL and Oracle Big Data Appliance can help your organization gain better insight faster.
Organizations are looking for innovative ways to manage more data from more sources than ever before. Although technologies like Hadoop and NoSQL offer specific ways of addressing big data problems, they can introduce data silos that complicate the data access and analysis needed to generate critical insights. To maximize the value from information and deliver on the promise of big data, companies need to evolve their data management architecture into a big data management system that seamlessly integrates all types of data from a variety of sources, including Hadoop, relational, and NoSQL. While simplifying access to all data, a big data management system should also enable organizations to leverage existing skills and maintain enterprise-grade data security and governance for sensitive or regulated information.
To address organizations' need for comprehensive big data solutions, Oracle today introduced Oracle Big Data SQL, an essential part of a big data management system. Breaking down data silos to simplify information access and discovery, the offering allows customers to run one SQL query across Hadoop, NoSQL, and Oracle Database, minimizing data movement while increasing performance and virtually eliminating data silos. Oracle Big Data SQL enables customers to gain a competitive advantage by making it easier to uncover insights faster, while protecting data security and enforcing governance. Furthermore, this approach enables organizations to leverage existing SQL investments in both people skills and applications.

"As organizations increasingly use diverse data sources beyond relational databases, such as Hadoop and NoSQL, data is becoming more and more siloed—hampering data analysis and insights and limiting the true potential of big data," said Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Database Server Technologies, Oracle. "Oracle Big Data SQL harnesses the popular, proven SQL query language to break down these silos and finally bring big data into the mainstream of an enterprise. Oracle continues its leadership in database innovation with this simple yet powerful way for organizations to access all of their data, leverage existing investments and skills, and gain new value and insights that can transform their business."
"Oracle Big Data Appliance is an excellent choice for customers looking to work with the full suite of Cloudera’s leading Hadoop-based technology. It’s more cost-effective and quicker to deploy than a DIY cluster," said Mike Olson, Cloudera founder, chief strategy officer, and chairman of the board. "When it comes to querying data in Hadoop, we’ve seen overwhelming demand from customers for SQL. This is why Cloudera has developed Impala—which Oracle includes on the Oracle Big Data Appliance—to enable customers to query data with SQL natively and efficiently in Hadoop. For customers who need to query and analyze data residing in both Hadoop and Oracle Database, Oracle Big Data SQL offers support for HDFS, preserves their existing SQL skills and security policies, and makes it easier to integrate Hadoop with their existing Oracle infrastructure."
