•Coles, one of the largest Australian Supermarket chains with more than 100,000 employees and 2000 stores Australia-wide, implemented Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c running on Oracle Linux to enable critical trend reporting during retail seasonal spikes. •Prior to Exadata, Coles' data warehouse infrastructure was under pressure to deliver within SLAs especially during seasonal peaks.
