Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse is an analytical data warehouse that is pre-built, readily deployable and engineered to meet the needs of financial institutions.
The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is a data warehousing and database machine that provides both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications. Exadata is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, according to Oracle.
Oracle claims two key components:
1. Data model addresses data sourcing/provisioning and results/outputs needs. Institutions can leverage this data
foundation to deploy their analytical data warehouse in a fraction of the time typically required to develop a warehouse from a conceptual or logical data model.
2. Analytical application infrastructure delivering a unified platform of application frameworks to help manage the end-to-end lifecycle of data within the warehouse. These frameworks provide full-lifecycle metadata
management, business-driven data quality checks, reconciliation with the GL, data mart management and workflow capabilities among others. Advanced capabilities are available to provide institutions with the ability to develop and deploy advanced computation.
