Striim Introduces Striim Cloud, a Real-Time Data Integration SaaS

Striim | February 25, 2022

Data Integration
Customers may offer real-time data to enable next-generation business intelligence and analytics with Striim Cloud.

Striim, Inc. announced today the universal availability of Strim Cloud, the quickest way for businesses to deliver real-time data and insights to enable corporate intelligence and decision-making in the digital economy. The Striim Cloud platform for real-time streaming data integration and analytics is the industry's first and only fully managed SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) platform. Customers can simply design real-time data pipelines to stream trillions of events each day with just a few clicks, all while benefiting from enterprise-grade operational, security, and management features. Customers can revolutionise their organisations by adopting new cloud models, digitising legacy systems, and updating their application infrastructure using Striim Cloud's zero-maintenance, infinitely scalable platform.

Operations in a variety of industries such as retail, manufacturing, logistics/supply chain, healthcare are being driven to become more responsive and reliable as a result of recent shifts in the worldwide economy and a more distributed workforce. As a result of these changes, there is a huge demand for real-time data. Operations leaders can utilise analytics to gauge demand and cost-to-serve with real-time data and make informed decisions. To stay relevant and successful in today's digital economy, the customer experience (CX) must also be individualised and differentiated.

ETL solutions from the past were not built to meet the needs of today's fast-paced businesses. Real-time applications connected to a modern customer experience, business intelligence, decision-making, real-time operations, and more cannot be supported by the traditional "batch" approach of data integration. Customers need real-time systems to ingest, process, query, and analyse data in order to deliver insights and enable real-time decisions. Data and analytics inform customer strategies and tactics across the entire organisation, but in order to be effective, customers need real-time systems to ingest, process, query, and analyse data in order to deliver insights and enable real-time decisions.

Striim Cloud is the only solution that provides real-time autonomous data pipelines, allowing businesses of all sizes, from FORTUNE 500 companies to startups, to migrate their outdated application designs to contemporary, cloud-native architectures with minimal downtime. The platform detects source database changes with change data capture (CDC), minimising the impact on other activities and ensuring the most up-to-date data possible. Customers might query, enrich, and execute analysis on a live data stream in real time instead of, after it has arrived at the destination database or data warehouse, allowing them to build apps on the pipeline and increase data capabilities without sacrificing speed.

Striim Cloud provides the organisation with a number of capabilities for digital transformation:

Striim Cloud gives you fast access to what's going on right now in a variety of apps: IT can quickly know what's going on, from consumer behaviour to marketing campaigns to supply-chain operations, and more, using real-time streaming data. The real-time streaming approach of Striim Cloud is intrinsically superior to older batch ETL techniques.
The cloud's simplicity, elasticity, and scalability are delivered by Striim Cloud: Customers can see all of their data pipelines in one place. They may create new pipelines or alter old ones, while Striim takes care of the heavy labour in the background. Cloud-native services and integrations are supported by Striim Cloud. This foundation enables businesses to quickly adjust to changing market conditions.
Enterprise innovation is boosted by Striim Cloud Enterprise: Enterprises get a competitive advantage by developing apps based on real-time data. Striim Cloud makes it simple to experiment with new apps based on data.

Data is automatically integrated into systems like Azure Synapse Analytics, Google Big Query, and Snowflake using Striim Cloud. Striim Cloud helps enterprises to fuel business information and decision-making in order to fulfil the demands of the digital economy while also providing an unrivalled data-driven customer experience.

Oracle Enhances Database 23c with AI Vector Search Capabilities

Oracle | September 20, 2023

Oracle introduces AI Vector Search, enabling semantic search and fast similarity queries by storing semantic content as vectors. Oracle Database 23c, "App Simple," streamlines interactions by declaring outcomes, incorporating AI Vector Search, and offering natural language interfaces. RAG combines large language models (LLMs) with private business data for precise responses to natural language queries while maintaining data privacy. Oracle has announced a significant enhancement to its Oracle Database 23c, introducing semantic search capabilities powered by AI vectors. This innovative collection of features, dubbed AI Vector Search, encompasses a suite of functionalities, including a novel vector data type, vector indexes, and SQL operators. This empowers Oracle Database to store semantic content from various sources, such as documents and images, as vectors and use them to run fast similarity queries. Notably, these advancements also facilitate Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG), a groundbreaking generative AI technique. RAG combines large language models (LLMs) with private business data to deliver precise responses to natural language queries. Importantly, this approach maintains data privacy by excluding sensitive information from LLM training data. Furthermore, Oracle will enable applications built on Oracle Database and Autonomous Database to add an LLM-based natural language interface. Thus allowing end-users to gain a simplified and intuitive way to request the data they need by framing natural language questions. Additionally, Oracle Database tools such as APEX and SQL Developer will receive enhancements with generative AI capabilities, empowering developers to use natural language for creating applications and SQL queries with ease, eliminating the need for manual coding. Oracle Database 23c, codenamed "App Simple," simplifies the way data professionals, developers, and data users interact with data by stating their desired outcomes rather than hand coding. Data systems will generate solutions using new database technologies such as JSON Relational Duality Views and AI Vector Search with new natural language interface capabilities. Additionally, by merging these technologies with Oracle's low-code APEX development framework, developers will be able to create complete apps. This method represents the future of data and application development and will offer huge productivity increases. Juan Loaiza, Executive Vice President of Mission-Critical Database Technologies, Oracle, stated: Oracle Database is the leading repository of business data, and the combination of business data and semantic data is what enterprises need to implement artificial intelligence solutions, [Source – Cision PR Newswire] Searches on a combination of business and semantic data became easier, faster, and more precise when a single database managed both types of data, stated Loaiza. He further explained that by adding AI Vector Search to Oracle Database, Oracle enables customers to quickly and easily access the benefits of artificial intelligence without compromising security, data integrity, or performance. He emphasized that using Oracle AI Vector Search does not require machine learning expertise and that all database users, including developers and administrators, could learn to use it in less than 30 minutes. The latest updates to Oracle Database services and products include: Modern Oracle Database and AI Application Development Oracle Autonomous Database GoldenGate 23c Free Oracle Autonomous Database Free Container Image Oracle APEX Next-generation Oracle Database Product and Services Oracle Database 23c Oracle Globally Distributed Autonomous Database Oracle Exadata Exascale Autonomous Database Elastic Resource Pools Trusted Data Fabric for AI GoldenGate 23c Oracle GoldenGate Veridata 23c (Beta) OCI GoldenGate Oracle Database Appliance X10 Oracle Database infrastructure for small and medium businesses
