Rittman Mead are very pleased today to announce our special edition of Oracle E-Business Suite R12 running on Apache Hadoop and MongoDB, for customers looking for the ultimate in scalability, flexible data storage and lower cost-of-ownership. Powered by Hadoop technologies such as Apache Hive, HDFS and MapReduce, optional reference data storage in MongoDB and reporting provided by Apache Pig, we think this represents the ultimate platform for large deployments of Oracle’s premier ERP suite.
We’ve also brought Oracle Reports into the 21st century by replacing it with Apache Pig, a high-level abstraction language for Hadoop that automatically compiles your “Pig Latin” programs into MapReduce code, and allows you to bring in data from Facebook, Twitter to combine with your main EBS dataset stored in Hive and MongoDB.
On the longer-term roadmap, features and enhancements we’re planning include:
- Loosening the current INSERT-only restriction to allow UPDATES, DELETEs and full ACID semantics once HIVE-5317 is implemented.
- Adding MongoDB’s new write-reliabiity and durability so that data is always saved when EBS writes it to the underlying MongoDB collection
- Reducing the current 5-30 minute response times to less than a minute by moving to Tez or Apache Spark
- Providing integration with Oracle Discoverer 9iAS to delight end-users, and provide ad-hoc reporting truly at the speed-of-thought
