Are you getting the most from your data? Getting valuable, actionable data from your IT systems is critical. But you’re not alone if you’re not getting this kind of data. A recent study shows that while data is the lifeblood of businesses, many companies don’t exploit their data the way they should. Overall, 43 percent of companies surveyed said they obtain little tangible benefit from data, while 23 percent said they derive no benefit whatsoever.

If your company isn’t making the most of its data, it’s costing itself time and money. It can also lead to catastrophic results. Adopting an Oracle database system can help you transform your data into critical, support-making decisions, boosting profitability. For example, adding Oracle Essbase to the mix enables you to generate insights from multidimensional data sets using what-if analysis and data visualization tools. CherryRoad can help you build a Database strategy with help from these software solutions that is optimized and aligned to your business goals.

Advantages of Oracle Databases

This software solution is a multi-model database management system using online transaction processing (OLTP), data warehousing (DW), and mixed (OLTP & DW) database workloads. In less technical terms, the software is a relational database management system that ensures the integrity of data stored and used. The solution stores, organizes, and retrieves data by type while maintaining relationships between various data types.

Benefits of Oracle database

The application is designed for grid computing, which uses distributed computer resources to reach a common goal. This approach delivers performance, functionality, scalability, and availability while combining unique and traditional features. Plus, the software delivers the four properties all databases need to provide: atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability. In short, the solution is a reliable database that performs well when presented with challenging tasks.

As an Oracle partner with more than 1000 engagements, we often get asked the question of why we recommend this software solution. Below we take a closer look at why companies use it, what it’s used for, and what its advantages are for today’s organizations:

1. Reduces operations costs

This application offers several ways to cut operations costs. An Oracle-based system, for example, lets you consolidate multiple databases into a single database. That shrinks operations and licensing costs. Plus, it lets you size your Cloud for everyday conditions. If a peak occurs, you can use Cloud Bursting for temporary increases. With on-premise versions, you often have to pay for spikes and/or usage peaks.

2. Uses a single database for all data types

The single database approach offers numerous advantages. It makes it easier to build new models and add new features. It also makes it more cost-effective to operate than multiple databases. Plus, the database has a high resistance to data crashes. If one application in the system goes down, the databases of other apps aren’t impacted. Plus, a single database approach is easier to manage and administer than a multiple database approach.

3. Provides a secure hybrid cloud environment

The database provides all the advantages of a secure hybrid cloud environment. It cuts IT costs, adds flexibility, and offers more data deployment options than competitors. The software’s hybrid environment also lets you tailor the resources you’re using to the workload you’re trying to execute. In other words, the hybrid cloud environment offers more options in terms of what you want to do and provides the tools you need to reach that goal.

4. Offers better identity management and user controls

The solution’s electronic identity is verifiable and hard to reproduce. It also verifies the identity of a user trying to access an object. In addition, the software’s user controls help companies restrict access to crucial information. With this solution, four critical functions—ID verification, authentication, authorization, and accountability—work together to grant access to resources and constrain what a subject can do with them.

5. Executes quick backup and recovery

The application has a quick online backup and recovery system. Its Media Recovery feature and recovery procedures help you protect data and reconstruct it should a loss occur. The software also restores and rolls back database files, lets you set a point-in-time for recovery, and supports backup and recovery from pre-defined server storage.

6. Offers multiple database support

This solution supports multiple data models against a single, integrated backend. That provides users with a streamlined approach to managing heterogeneous data. With multiple database support, you can move data from node to node from where it was stored and mirror the data within the same network. Multiple database support also lets you update more than one database with a single request. Plus, the software provides a two-phase commit protocol to manage multiple databases within the same transactions.

7. Provides superior scalability

The solution can handle large or small databases. However, managing several small databases creates an administrative burden on a DBA team. The software’s Multitenant option, however, allows you to consolidate small databases under a single Container Database for improved scalability and reduced system overhead. Multitenant also reduces CPU use, memory, and I/O compared to databases running individually.

8. Includes Flashback technology

This functionally provides a critical advantage to users. Flashback allows you to recover data incorrectly deleted or lost. That essentially removes human error and decreases database recovery time. Put another way, Flashback simplifies and streamlines management and administrative process that saves you time and money.

This solution is also reliable and portable, supporting more than 100 hardware platforms and 20 networking protocols. Its strength, however, is an integrated set of development tools that support any development approach, technology platform, or operating system. These tools range from traditional database management tools and Java-based mid-tier development tools to the contemporary frameworks and platforms driving today’s advanced Cloud applications and architecture effectively.

Oracle DBMS- Among the Best DBMS Solutions Available

Clearly, Oracle’s DBMS has a lot to offer companies. But it isn’t a panacea for all your IT issues. Nevertheless, it can help you address many of the IT pain points you face daily and generate valuable, actionable data that boost decision-making. This solution can also help you minimize operations costs, manage memory efficiently, and support multiple data models—all while providing advanced authorized access and failure recovery capabilities. In short, the software solution provides performance, security, availability, and reliability.
