Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover
quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection
architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional
backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This
is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex,
and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for
today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation
Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have
implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for
companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as
ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have
highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

The public sector has invested in big time in big data. But there’s one thing most public sector entities are dropping the ball on: real-time data, and how it can be combined with big data to increase citizen safety and make mission-critical digital transformation projects happen on-time and on budget. Read this white paper to learn why public sector entities need both big data and real-time data if they are going to deliver on their digital transformation promises.
Today’s digital businesses are managed using critical business analyses that provide far greater insight into the business and how to maximize results. However, these high-value applications that use the latest software tools demand far more from IT infrastructure, as they utilize an order of magnitude more data and demand more compute resources than legacy applications. Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the present and future needs of the organization.
Forward-thinking IT organizations are developing new infrastructure strategies to better support high-value analytics workloads with Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor.

Enterprise data protection has grown unwieldy, with systems from various vendors claiming to
protect all of an enterprise’s data—and none of them doing a particularly good job of addressing
mission-critical data recoverability requirements. It’s a situation that introduces risk and raises
concerns about IT’s ability to recover in a timely manner and without data loss from outages
caused by cybercrime, system failures, or human error.
An integrated strategy that focuses on the complete data recovery needs of an enterprise can
eliminate data loss, cut recovery times, and reduce IT complexity—while ensuring data security
and positioning the enterprise to seamlessly take advantage of the cloud.
Backup is one thing, recovery is everything.
You no doubt appreciate how mission-critical your Oracle database is to your organization's success. But what if you experience an outage or cyberattack? Can you be confident you can quickly recover all of your data? Traditional backup solutions leave data exposed to loss and your business at risk. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance eliminates exposure and saves you time, effort, and the stress of retrieving data.
Discover how our customers are recovering their data without the drama.
Oracle Database powers your business’s mission-critical applications.
Their downtime and data loss can have a devastating impact on your company’s bottom line and productivity—not to mention the damage to your company’s (and your) reputation, because outages and data losses make headlines.
The Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance’s benefits
are compelling for any enterprise with a need to
protect critical Oracle databases. The differences
between this database recovery appliance and other
approaches to data protection are stark. The Recovery
Appliance leverages a combination of existing proven
technologies and new developments that eliminate
data loss and improve recovery. The elimination of
periods between backups when database changes are
not captured is also a major benefit, and the movement
to a process of frequent or constant incremental
backups provided by this appliance changes the game.
Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems.
As easy as it is to get swept up by the hype surrounding big data, it’s just as easy for organizations to become discouraged by the challenges they encounter while implementing a big data initiative. Concerns regarding big data skill sets (and the lack thereof), security, the unpredictability of data, unsustainable costs, and the need to make a business case can bring a big data initiative to a screeching halt.
However, given big data’s power to transform business, it’s critical that organizations overcome these challenges and realize the value of big data.
