Introducing the Industry's First Analytics Machine, Oracle Exalytics

Analytics is all about gaining insights from data for better decision making. The
business press is abuzz with examples of leading organizations across the world using
data-driven insights for strategic, financial and operational excellence. A recent study on
“data-driven decision making” conducted by researchers at MIT and Wharton provides
empirical evidence that “firms that adopt data-driven decision making have output and
productivity that is 5-6% higher than the competition”. The potential payoff for firms can
range from higher shareholder value to a market leadership position.

However, the vision of delivering fast, interactive, insightful analytics has remained elusive
for most organizations. Most enterprise IT organizations continue to struggle to deliver
actionable analytics due to time-sensitive, sprawling requirements and ever tightening
budgets. The issue is further exasperated by the fact that most enterprise analytics
solutions require dealing with a number of hardware, software, storage and networking
vendors and precious resources are wasted integrating the hardware and software
components to deliver a complete analytical solution.

Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine is the world‟s first engineered system specifically
designed to deliver high performance analysis, modeling and planning. Built using
industry-standard hardware, market-leading business intelligence software and in-memory
database technology, Oracle Exalytics is an optimized system that delivers answers to all
your business questions with unmatched speed, intelligence, simplicity and manageability.

Oracle Exalytics's unmatched speed, visualizations and scalability delivers extreme
performance for existing analytical and enterprise performance management applications
and enables a new class of intelligent applications like Yield Management, Revenue
Management, Demand Forecasting, Inventory Management, Pricing Optimization,
Profitability Management, Rolling Forecast and Virtual Close etc.

Requiring no application redesign, Oracle Exalytics can be deployed in existing IT
environments by itself or in conjunction with Oracle Exadata and/or Oracle Exalogic to
enable extreme performance and best in class user experience. Based on proven hardware,
software and in-memory technology, Oracle Exalytics lowers the total cost of ownership,
reduces operational risk and provides unprecedented analytical capability for workgroup,
departmental and enterprise wide deployments.
