The first-ever Global Digital Transformation Benefits Report is here. The report analyzes 230 customer stories and 330 data points to provide concrete evidence on digitization's disruptive potential. It examines how digital transformation has driven CapEx and OpEx savings, sustainability initiatives, equipment uptime, and other key business goals. It also includes stories from 34 of our customers, including how:
• Tata Power, an Indian power company, cut power restoration times from hours to seconds.
• New Belgium Brewing, a US beer company, cut downtime by 50%.
• Vitens, a Dutch water utility, shrank deployment times by 65%.
Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.

Content is king. But as the line between publishers and brands are blurring, all brands are finding themselves in both the content and the commerce games. And customers expect this.
As Alexis Maybank, founder of Gilt Groupe described it, “If I go into a restoration hardware store, for instance, I understand they’re selling that product, but I’m not just interested in seeing rows of lamps on shelves. I want to be shown how to set up a room and create a look. That’s what I’m craving: the ability to see a product, understand how to use it, and be given the tips and tools to imagine how that might change my interior.”
