Big Data Documentation

Companies have been making business decisions for decades based on transactional data stored in relational databases. Beyond that critical data is a potential treasure trove of less structured data: weblogs, social media, email, sensors, and photographs that can be mined for useful information. Oracle offers a broad and integrated portfolio of products to help you acquire and organize these diverse data sources and analyze them alongside your existing data to find new insights and capitalize on hidden relationships. Learn how Oracle helps you acquire, organize, visualize, and transform your big data to gain valuable insights into your business.
