Simplify the end to end management of not only the storage footprint but the entire data lifecycle.
Oracle EBS projects often exceed desired timelines and budget because they are constrained by data. Inflexible IT infrastructure and unwieldy processes often mean that it takes days or weeks to provision data to application teams. Data as a Service (DaaS) represents an entirely new approach to managing data that accelerates EBS projects by as much as 50%.
What You'll Learn:
Why effectively managing data is critical to EBS projects
What Data as a Service means to firms implementing, upgrading, and maintaining EBS systems
Why industry leaders such as Facebook, Cisco, and Macy’s have embraced Data as a Service

For many companies one of the biggest decisions they will make, or have made, when moving to the cloud will be how they implement their cloud storage infrastructure. Issues around ease of access, uptime, security, redundancy, SLA, maintenance, and total cost of ownership drive the decision to one of three options: build, buy, or rent. This webinar will explore these issues and compare them for the three options helping you optimize your plan for your business needs and growth.
Please join Forrester Research and DataDirect Networks for this educational webinar to learn about the challenges and solution options for implementing storage in the cloud.

The ability to generate and capture various sensor data, communications, and imagery has grown exponentially, and there does not appear to be any change in sight. To effectively extract the maximum benefit from the deluge of data generated today, analysts need to utilize the new generation of analytical tools and human expertise that is rapidly being developed. When properly utilized, these advances are providing today’s analysts with an unprecedented ability to make real-time data-driven decisions as well as improved options to collaborate and share information. However, effective implementation in the era of hyperscale data depends on the ability to manage conventional system technology, and unpredictable volume requirements. An imbalanced analytics system can result in bottlenecks that reduce the value of analytics tools and the enterprise data warehouses (EDW) that power them. As such, it’s critical for organizations to ensure that at either end of the ingest/egest process they build scalable storage and storage processing technology to complement today’s high-speed data warehousing and data analytics technology. This session will detail how new filing system options and cloud infrastructure can improve the performance of analytics applications utilizing actual benchmark tests, and demonstrate new options to collaborate and share information.
Dr. Reagan W. Moore - Director, Data Intensive Cyber-Environments
Higher education institutions around the world are in the process of digitizing, indexing and adding searchable metadata to their digital collections. As these data sets expand to hundreds of millions of immutable objects and petabytes of data, there is a need to consolidate and automate to maximize the value of this capital expenditure.
The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) is a popular open source policy-based data management system (application) that enables data sharing, publication and preservation and is also capable of implementing an automated data analysis pipeline. For each type of data management application, policies or rules can be applied that control the execution of procedures that enforce desired collection properties. By evolving the policies, a collection can migrate through the stages of the data life cycle.
DataDirect Networks - Storage Fusion Architecture is a highly scalable storage platform capable of hosting iRODS in a tightly coupled solution with a RAID controller and parallel file system providing an appliance like solution that can scale to multiple-petabytes in a single name space.
