The value of the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

Operating a data warehouse is a complex, costly task. From data security to its management, storage, accessibility, and everything in between, it’s simply not a task that can or should be taken on manually.

According to Craig Kelly, Competency Head – Oracle Technology, iOCO, “it is essential that businesses take control of their data to ensure higher confidence in the resultant analyses, for better business decisions.”

The Oracle Division at iOCO specialises in providing high availability solutions, real-time data integration, transactional change data capture, data replication, transformations, and verification between operational and analytical enterprise systems.

Cloud to the rescue

Thankfully, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse has the answer. Available in both the Oracle public cloud and customers data centers with Oracle Cloud@Customer, this cloud data warehouse service eliminates virtually all the complexities of operating a data warehouse, securing data, and developing data-driven applications. As a result, it has the potential to drastically reduce costs. It is not only easy, fast, powerful, and autonomous – but it’s self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing too.

What Is Automated with Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse?

This cloud service automates the following elements within the data warehouse:

• Provisioning
