Every year brings new challenges for big data, from applications to security to discovery. This webcast brings together some of Oracle's leading experts to give useful—and provocative—insight into what's coming over the horizon. Some long-term trends will see tipping points, as Machine Learning, for example, blurs into Artificial Intelligence with easier-to-use tools and better data access. In other cases, long-term developments that have been in tension will see new strategies for coexisting: hybrids of private and public cloud will become much more common, and tools and strategies for making the best of each of their virtues will be a major theme of 2017.

On top of these established trends, new technologies are enabling long-desired applications, with Kafka supporting simpler data-bus architectures for Real-Time data analytics, and data virtualization giving analysts access to data across storage platforms and language barriers.
