What Can Oracle Cloud Database Do for Your Business? (Part 2)

In our last article in this series, we asked you to think about what business agility means for your industry. We laid out and explained how the new Oracle Database can promote creative problem solving at your enterprise, as well as increase your ability to pivot and take advantage of emerging business opportunities.

Now, in Part 2, we’re going to examine the #1 advantage Oracle Cloud Database brings to your enterprise – and we’ll let you in on the secret to getting the right setup in place without disrupting your operations.

First, let’s ease your burning curiosity and look at the biggest advantage the Oracle Cloud Database brings to you and how that happens.

1. The Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud helps you allocate resources to maintain true agility

Before we continue, let’s make one thing clear – the Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud isn’t an automatic database, it’s an autonomous database. This is a very important distinction. 

We’ve talked a little bit about the differences between these two database types before, but the main difference is that an automatic database requires your Database Administrators (DBAs) to manually respond to notifications and alerts, whereas the autonomous database uses sophisticated machine learning technologies to determine the correct course of action for common issues. 

This is a big deal because the average DBA receives as many as 17,000 notifications per week. You can see the problem here: though an automatic database may call attention to exceptions and errors better, it leaves your DBAs scrambling to put out constant fires every day. This situation is the perfect example of enterprise inefficiency, and that’s not a good way to plan for the future of your business. 

One of the more frequently occurring fires that DBAs have to handle is optimizing resource utilization and allocation. However, the automated, self-driving Oracle Database takes care of resource optimization and tuning for you, so your databases can handle workloads better than ever before, with zero human intervention required. 

This one critical change frees up your DBAs’ time (and therefore your money), and also helps you speed up productivity across the enterprise (which also saves you money). In addition, a cloud database enhances both convenience and speed across your enterprise, and Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud helps you reduce cloud sprawl… which helps you save even more money

All of this saved money and saved time helps you build up surplus resources, so you can respond creatively and quickly to unexpected disruptions or obstacles in your industry.

And that’s how your enterprise can set up true agility that will continue to support your growth in the years to come. 

Ready to Free Up Your DBAs? Get the Right Setup in Place.

Taking advantage of all the Oracle Cloud Database has to offer is a smart idea for many modern enterprises, but to make sure your self-driving database knows “what road to drive” (so to speak), you need a trained, skilled database implementation and cloud management team that can help you set up your autonomous system and get your AI running error-free. 

Your databases are too important to risk with inexperienced techs; this is not an area of business where you take chances or run risks. It’s in your best interests to find the most experienced cloud experts for your Oracle solutions.
