Welcome to the SIG

With the large uptake of iPhones, iPads, Androids and other multimedia centric devices, has resulted in businesses and government trying to understand how to deal with, manage and commercialize the huge volumes of data now starting to be collected. From museums, to galleries, to educational institutions, as well as marketing firms, security organisations, healthcare, food, shop owners, small business, manufacturers to government.

All have a requirement to provide services to their customers that now require a heavy multimedia focus. All this data needs to be managed and its best handled, secured and controlled inside the Oracle database. With a feature rich environment inside the database, Oracle is well positioned to handle the terabytes of data organizations are now starting to discover they have spread across laptops, devices and computers. They are beginning to realize that they have huge amounts of corporate knowledge locked into unstructured data types and do not have the expertise to understand or manage it.

The initial goal of the SIG is to just to see what knowledge and expertise there is out there. To then collate all this information and try and put structure around any papers and knowledge that is there. Moving forward from the SIG will be to work with the different user groups to promote the SIG and attempt to get people to write papers and do research into these four areas: Management; Hardware (VM and Storage); Database and Development. . The SIG is international and is open to anyone including Oracle people. The SIG is going to focus on the Oracle and MySQL databases
