The evolution of Oracle's big data strategy

In their quest to handle voluminous, unstructured data and provide valuable cloud services, Oracle introduced the Big Data Cloud Appliance. This marked the beginning of their journey in the big data arena. As organizations continue to require more scalability and elasticity, Oracle has pivoted towards the Big Data Cloud Service.

The perks of migrating from BDA to BDS

Migrating from the Oracle BDA to the BDS bears several benefits for organizations. Notably, the elasticity and scalability of the cloud environment allow the handling of larger data estates and diverse workloads. A case study shared during the webinar showed how transitioning to BDS significantly cut down a telecom company's migration timeline, which led to cost savings and the unlocking of new revenue streams through AI and machine learning.
