The Data Integrator Cloud aims to pull together data for analysis across an entire enterprise
Oracle has launched the Data Integrator Cloud, a service for simplifying the integration of data from a variety of sources for use with real-time analytics within the Oracle Cloud Platform.
Given the Oracle Cloud portfolio supports a range of public, private and hybrid cloud developments and all he data and workloads that comes with such systems, it covers a broad range of enterprise and business data sets that have access to useful information which when analysed can be used to improve a enterprise’s operations or spot new business opportunities.
But getting all this data in one place and ready for use with an analytics system often requires a process of sanitation and formatting to ensure such treasure troves of data can be crunched and analysed, which can require time and resource intensive processes of hard-coding and copying data from one source to anther. This is where Oracle says the Data Integrator Cloud comes in.

“To be effective and agile, enterprises need seamless communication and flow of data between sources and targets – data originating from IoT (Internet of Things), Web, and business applications or data that is stored in the cloud or on premises,” said Jeff Pollock, vice president of product management at Oracle.
“Oracle Data Integrator Cloud provides businesses with a high-performance, simple, and integrated cloud service to execute data transformations where the data lies, with no hand coding required, and without having to copy data unnecessarily.”
The overarching concept behind the Data Integrator Cloud is to improve the productivity of organisations when it comes to making data-driven decisions, but according to Oracle, reducing costs at the same time with better data movement and transformation across an enterprise, as well as integrations between Oracle systems and those from other companies.
At a time when more companies are tapping into big data, having access to a system than makes managing it easier and faster could be a boon to big businesses. And that approach to IT is filtering into other areas such as cyber security as seem with IBM’s latest Watson-based security system.
