Oracle to release finance data warehouse

A new Oracle data warehouse will be marketed to banks, financial institutions

Oracle is offering a data warehouse tailored for the needs of the financial services industry, the company announced Thursday.

Financial services have found the process of setting up generic data warehouses difficult to complete, the company asserts. The new data warehouse package should eliminate a lot of the routine chores devoted to customizing data warehouses for the financial environment, according to Oracle.

With financial data warehouses, "the focus ... shifts from the indiscriminate, tedious capture and stewardship of all data, to the speed and specific context in which comprehensive decisions must now be made," said S. Ramakrishnan, group vice president and general manager of Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications, in a statement.

With this package, a firm should be able to easily store financial data, generate reports, manage the metadata and carry out other routine financial functions, Oracle said.

The Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse will be based on a financial services data model that Oracle has developed over the past 15 years, geared toward prepping data so that it can be used for customer analysis, compliance testing, reporting and risk analysis. The company offers about 30 financial applications that can work with this data model, including those that cover enterprise risk management, governance, risk, and compliance, enterprise performance management and customer insight.

The data warehouse is packaged as hardware with preinstalled Oracle financial software applications, databases and extract, transform, load (ETL) tools. The package offers users self-service style reporting and business intelligence tools. Third party analytics applications can be used to also analyze data from the warehouse. It has been customized so that it can easily be coupled with Oracle Exadata database servers.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
