Big Data Analytics and Predicting Election Results

April 1, 2019

The best way to predict the future is to study past behavior. This is the underlying idea behind Big Data Analytics. The 2008 Obama election campaign was one of the first to take advantage of data-driven methods in the race to an elected office. The Obama campaign had a data analytics team of 100 people. This shows how deeply data analytics impacts the world. From recommending products to customers on e-commerce websites (i.e. using predictive analytics) to electing the most powerful official of the free world. Big Data Analytics is indeed everywhere. Data analytics has evolved itself to become the brain of every election campaign since the Obama campaign. Data analytics helps the election campaign to understand the voters better and hence adapt to their sentiments. Now let‘s find out how data analytics affects the elections and how election campaigns use it

The Value of Oracle Enterprise Manager for Managing Oracle Databases

whitePaper | February 7, 2020

Multiple studies have proven that, while the business demand for databases grows, operational teams are constrained by traditional, reactive processes. Combined with budgetary pressures, this causes them to fall short in meeting the demand in a timely fashion. In addition, as companies adopt cloud paradigms, operational teams must manage across on-premises and cloud environments with the same resources. To be effective, companies need to shift from a reactive posture to one of standardization and proactive analysis and planning by leveraging intuitive tooling to automate manually intensive and non-value adding activities and to deliver real-time insights.

Effective Data Management Is Essential for Taming the 5G Network Complexity Beast

whitePaper | September 26, 2022

Communications service provider (SP) traffic volumes are progressively increasing as networks evolve, user devices gain greater capacity, and applications engaging with advanced network data such as that from the 5G standalone (5G SA) network exposure function (NEF) start to deliver on customer expectations. Cloudification of network functions — virtualized network functions (VNFs) and cloud-native network functions (CNFs) — is placing new burdens on old systems and processes not designed to manage intent-based network architecture. Silos of data locked within many installed systems keep transformation efforts from reaching anticipated objectives.

How Data Maturity and Product Analytics Improve Digital Experiences and Business Outcomes

whitePaper | October 5, 2022

As we assess the global business environment in the latter half of 2022, perhaps the best single word that describes the state of play is uncertainty. Planning for uncertainties is a significant part of what we, as business executives and individuals, do on a daily basis. In times of uncertainty, brands realize they must work even harder to retain customers and deepen relationships by delivering value and empathy at scale. As we analyze our uncertainties, we can take comfort and guidance from management guru Peter Drucker, who wrote that “strategy aims to exploit the new and different opportunities of tomorrow” (Managing in Turbulent Times, 1980).
