Presentation Title: Accelerating E-Business Suites Using Data Virtualization
Speaker: Mr Tim Gorman ACE Director
Company: Delphix
Presentation abstract: Data professionals are under more pressure than ever to increase the tempo of developing, testing, and releasing software, while simultaneously keeping data secure against theft or inappropriate use.

Mission-critical applications like E-Business Suites (EBS), which are huge, complex, and contain sensitive data, are difficult to customise, patch, and upgrade. Yet we continue to manage them as we have for decades.

Many habits and assumptions from maintaining software over past decades must finally be laid to rest. Chief among these outdated assumptions is that development and testing projects are limited to sharing only two or three environments, due to the speed and cost of storage. Existing methods of cloning production systems to create environments for development and testing are slow and cruelly expensive.

Data virtualisation is the solution that permits dozens of full-sized and fully functioning environments to be created within the footprint of one, allowing each project, even individuals, to own and manage their own. Cloning multi-TB databases takes only minutes and consumes almost no storage.

Further, cloning production systems to non-production environments generally exacerbates data security by exposing confidential production data to a wider audience of developers and testers not authorized to view it. As development and testing is outsourced, exposure of confidential data becomes even more likely. Data breaches in today's headlines says it all.

Data masking technology, integrated tightly with data virtualisation technology, ensures that not only are environments for development and testing produced quickly and inexpensively, but also securely, but obfuscating confidential data as it is provisioned.

Large and complex applications consist of more than just database, also consisting of software in the appsTier and dbTier. The Delphix Dynamic Data Platform can virtualize, manage, and mask all tiers of EBS, providing a complete end-to-end solution for accelerating the tempo of operations.
