MicroStrategy Certifies Its Analytics Platform for Oracle Database 12c
Collaboration with Oracle Results in Faster Setup and Greater Value For MicroStrategy Customers
TYSONS CORNER, Va., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of enterprise software platforms, today announced that the MicroStrategy Analytics Platform™ is now certified to be compatible with, and optimized for, Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant.
"The two companies share a consistent focus on working to deliver end-to-end enterprise analytics and data warehousing technologies, offering solutions that can more effectively address our customer needs and improve decision-making," said Paul Zolfaghari, President, MicroStrategy Incorporated. "MicroStrategy's active participation in Oracle's beta programs helps ensure that our products dovetail out-of-the-box and before general availability. A virtually seamless integration and smooth implementation of our products can result in ease of setup and administration, resulting in faster time-to-value for customers."
MicroStrategy works closely with Oracle's database development team to ensure optimized connection points. The following are some of the key benefits of this collaboration:
- MicroStrategy leverages the processing power of the Oracle Database 12c in its Mobile Platform and enterprise analytics by pushing analytics to the database.
- MicroStrategy dynamically generates SQL queries specifically optimized for Oracle Database 12c.
- Integrating with Oracle Multitenant increases scalability and server utilization, allowing for management of multiple databases in a unified manner.
- Oracle Multitenant allows MicroStrategy to retain the isolation of separate databases without changing applications or access rights.
- MicroStrategy's unique 64-bit native analytics platform uses a dynamic multi-pass SQL generation engine and leverages the processing power of Oracle Database 12c to return the smallest datasets for middle-tier processing.
- By automatically generating optimized SQL, MicroStrategy supports advanced analytics and combines rapid performance with transaction-level data access.
"The new multitenant architecture makes it easier for MicroStrategy and Oracle's joint customers to consolidate their databases and securely manage many as one," said George Lumpkin, Vice President, Product Development, Oracle. "In addition, new Oracle Database 12c in-database analytics capabilities like SQL pattern matching, predictive analytics, and R statistical analyses are ideally suited to meet the analytic demands of MicroStrategy users. The innovations in Oracle Database 12c were developed with our customers' cloud requirements in mind."
