For those of you who are new to business intelligence or data analytics solutions, basically, what you can achieve with it is to do big data.
To simply put, I will give you a scenario.
Recall the keynote of Larry Ellison (Oracle) on Open world 2012. At the end of the keynote, Larry presented a big data scenario.
The idea was to figure out one simple question which may take hell to calculate - “Which Olympic 2012 celebrity is most suitable to be selected as ambassador to carry the product of Lexus LFA ?”
To do that, it made use of Oracle Business Intelligent suite, Endeca and Oracle database deployed on Exadata to analyze 4.9 billions tweets from Twitter’s Firehose by analyzing both structured and unstructured textual data. Based on the dimensions of tweets, relationships, mentions, hashtage and authors, it was eventually decided that the person most suitable for this job is Gabrielle Douglas beating Michael Phelps in second place.
In retrospect, big data means that you can build a search engine for your own use.
