The big data landscape is constantly changing and the latest IOUG study is reflecting those changes as organizations continue to flock to the cloud, changing the role and mission of IT teams.
DBTA recently held a webinar with Lee Levitt, director, business development, Oracle, who discussed how companies are navigating the change and capitalizing on the benefits cloud brings when it comes to data management and getting more out of analytics.
Business teams need actionable insights, Levitt explained. It must keep pace with agile business needs. According to the latest Oracle study, IT spends 70% of its time in maintenance and is unable to keep up. Enterprises need to implement emerging technologies to help the business innovate.
Thirty nine percent of DBAs handle 50 or more databases. Enterprises need to ensure performance SLAs, security, regulatory compliance and availability.
And 95% of DBAs are still creating and updating databases manually. Enterprises need to safeguard data so it can be trusted and accessed to get insight.
The survey is also predicting more than half of respondents will move to the cloud within the next two years.
The types of database workloads being moved to the cloud include dev/test databases, transactional/production databases, operational data warehousing, big data frameworks, archival data warehousing, and more.
The Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud can help DBAs who are struggling organize and gain insights without sacrificing workloads, Levitt said.
The platform promises several benefits:
- 80% reduction in administration costs – invest in innovation
- 2 min/month impact on business continuity – maintain brand reputation
