Jordan’s Top Bank Becomes Regional Blockchain Leader with Oracle

By Guest Author, Oracle—Nov 20, 2019

Arab Jordan Investment Bank (AJIB) provides retail, corporate, and investment banking services in Jordan, Cyprus, and Qatar. Sending money between subsidiaries has historically relied on a network of correspondent banking relationships and third-party intermediaries, leading to slow and costly transactions for both AJIB and its customers. In addition, it required sharing customer information with third parties—a process involving strict regulatory requirements with occasional conflicts between different jurisdictions. AJIB aimed to reduce the costs and time required for cross-border payments, while making the entire process more secure and efficient.

In order to boost speed, security, and reliability of cross-border money transfers with distributed ledger technology, AJIB deployed Oracle Blockchain Platform in what has become the largest blockchain deployment in the Middle East.

Before using blockchain, money transfers between AJIB subsidiaries were processed by third-party intermediaries that charged fees at each stage of a cross-border transfer transaction. AJIB needed to reduce the costs and the time required for cross-border payments, while making the entire process more secure and efficient.

“Oracle delivers an enterprise-grade blockchain platform with high resiliency, scalability and security. The built-in features, such as identity management and data encryption, made it an ideal choice given our industry requirements and compliance needs,” said Ayman Qadoumi, Deputy General Manager, Information Technology and Security, Arab Jordan Investment Bank.

With Oracle Blockchain Platform, AJIB is now able to make the same transfers in real time without paying those fees. Senders and receivers can now track money transfers while the funds are in transit, providing transparency to both parties about the exact timing and amount of the transfer.

Urban Leaders Power the Future with Oracle

Oracle Press Releases - Wed, 2019-11-20 07:00
Press Release
Urban Leaders Power the Future with Oracle Global Research Highlights Cloud and Advanced Technologies as the Driver of Innovation among Smart Cities

SMART CITIES EXPO WORLD CONGRESS, Barcelona—Nov 20, 2019

Data is at the core of successful smart city innovation, according to new research from Oracle and economic and urban research consultancy ESI ThoughtLab. The Building a Hyperconnected City study found that cities are drowning in data from advancements such as Internet of Things (IoT). The survey projected that there will be more than 30 billion connected devices generating data by 2020. The study notes that for cities to become truly ‘smart’, they must have a cloud infrastructure in place to extract, integrate, and analyze this data to glean the insights needed to enhance everything from citizen services to building projects.

The report surveyed 100 cities across the United States, APAC, EMEA and LATAM.

The hyper-connected multiplier effect

According to the study, the average return on investments in hyper-connected initiatives ranges from three - four percent. As cities become more interlinked, their ROI grows: cities just starting out realize a return of 1.8 percent for implementers and 2.6 percent for advancers, while hyper-connected leaders see a 5.0 percent boost. That can translate into enormous returns ranging from $19.6 million for implementers to $40.0 million for advancers and $83 million for hyper-connected leaders. 

Other key findings from the study include:

  • AI, Blockchain and biometrics are increasingly pervasive: Cities are using these technologies in key urban areas, such as IT infrastructure and telecoms, mobility and transportation, payment and financial systems, and physical and digital security. City leaders need the right technology platforms and applications to implement and leverage these tools and capabilities.
  • Cybersecurity requires careful planning and is expensive when not implemented properly: The study revealed that half of the 100 city leaders surveyed do not feel adequately prepared for cyberattacks.
  • Smart initiatives are bolstering constituent satisfaction: While physical and digital security top the list of priorities, citizen engagement and satisfaction have risen as a top five goal. 33 percent of innovative leaders in North America have appointed Chief Citizen Experience Officers.
 

“The public sector, particularly at local level, is dealing with seismic technological, demographic and environmental shifts. Data is the rocket fuel for this transformation, and progressive cities are turning to cloud, data platforms, mobile applications and IoT as a way to scale and prepare for the future,” said Susan O’Connor, global director for Smart Cities, Oracle. “In contrast, not taking advantage of emerging technologies such as AI, Blockchain or virtual and augmented reality comes at a cost. Cities of the future need strategic, long-term investments in cloud data architecture, along with the right expertise to guide them through.”

Customer Commitment to Smarter Cities:

“As a data driven organization, we integrate, manage and use data to inform how we improve services for our constituents,” said Hamant Bharadia, assistant director of finance at the London Borough of Lambeth. “Oracle Cloud Applications for financial planning and payroll are an integral part of our digital strategy, setting us up for a modern way of working and engaging with our communities. They are an essential enabler for us to support innovation, improve public safety and realize our vision of making Lambeth a connected, inclusive place to thrive.” 

“Approximately 50% of Buenos Aires sidewalks are in poor condition, and we previously used spreadsheets to plan the routes for our crew to fix them,” said Alejandro Naon, chief of staff of planning of the undersecretariat of pedestrian ways, City of Buenos Aires. “Today, with Oracle CX Field Service Cloud, we can identify and fix the sidewalks exponentially faster because we receive images and information in real time. Our sidewalks are safer, our workers are more productive, and we recovered our Oracle technology investment in 18 months.”

“At the foundation of our smart government innovation is Oracle Analytics Cloud. It is both the heartbeat and hub for sharing information, enabling us to deliver data-driven citizen services and engagement with maximum impact,” said Chris Cruz, director and chief information officer, San Joaquin County. “Our entities throughout San Joaquin County, such as hospitals, law enforcement, transportation and public works, now partner more effectively and are better equipped to meet the health, social, safety and economic needs of our constituents.” 

Oracle's Smart City solutions transform the ways cities can harness and process the power of data through the integration of modern digital technologies and channels. The platform integrates technologies spanning cloud, digital outreach, omni-channel service, case management, mobility, social, IoT, Blockchain, and artificial intelligence while helping ensure comprehensive security and information privacy.

NFS Storage Configuration for Kubernetes

Yann Neuhaus - Tue, 2019-11-19 09:08

For one of our important customers, we are working on a major project to migrate critical applications to containers. From the implementation of the Kubernetes architecture to the deployment of applications and the administration of the platform, we are responsible for an important technological stack with new challenges for our team.

One of the challenges, both important and exciting, is the implementation of Kubernetes clusters on bare metal (VM) and its management. We have deployed a Kubernetes cluster in VMs, based on VMWare.

As you know, one of the challenges of containerization is storage management. Do we manage stateless or stateful applications? For stateful applications, the way the data generated by the application is stored is very important.

Therefore, based on our infrastructure, we have 2 possibilities:

Here is a representative diagram of the 2 solutions:

Configuring NFS storage for Kubernetes

The Kubernetes infrastructure is composed of the following:

  • k8s-master
  • k8s-worker1
  • k8s-worker2

In addition, we have an NFS server to store our cluster data. In the next steps, we are going to expose the NFS share as a cluster object. We will create Kubernetes Persistent Volumes and Persistent Volume Claims for our application.

Persistent Volume Creation

Define the persistent volume at the cluster level as following:

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ vi create-pv.yaml
apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolume
metadata:
name: nfs-demo
labels:
app: nfs
type: data
spec:
accessModes:
- ReadWriteOnce
capacity:
storage: 10Gi
volumeMode: Filesystem
nfs:
path: /home/ec2-user/data
server: ec2-3-88-194-14.compute-1.amazonaws.com
persistentVolumeReclaimPolicy: Retain

Create the persistent volume and see the results:

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl create -f create-pv.yaml
persistentvolume/nfs-demo created
[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl get pv
NAME       CAPACITY   ACCESS MODES   RECLAIM POLICY   STATUS      CLAIM   STORAGECLASS   REASON   AGE
nfs-demo   10Gi       RWO            Retain           Available                                   7s

Once it’s created we can create a persistent volume claim. A PVC is dedicated to a specific namespace.
First, create the nfs-demo namespace, then the PVC.

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl create ns nfs-demo
namespace/nfs-demo created
[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ vi create-pvc.yaml
apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
metadata:
  name: nfs-demo
  namespace: nfs-demo
  labels:
   app: nfs
spec:
  accessModes:
    - ReadWriteOnce
  resources:
     requests:
       storage: 10Gi
  selector:
    matchLabels:
      app: nfs
      type: data
[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl create -f create-pvc.yaml
persistentvolumeclaim/nfs-demo created

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl get pvc -n nfs-demo
NAME STATUS VOLUME CAPACITY ACCESS MODES STORAGECLASS AGE
nfs-demo Bound nfs-demo 10Gi RWO 3m21s

We can see now that our persistent volume changes its status from “Available” to “Bound”.

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl get pv
NAME       CAPACITY   ACCESS MODES   RECLAIM POLICY   STATUS   CLAIM               STORAGECLASS   REASON   AGE
nfs-demo   10Gi       RWO            Retain           Bound    nfs-demo/nfs-demo                           169m

Finally, let’s deploy now our workload which will consume the volume claim and the persistent volume. Whatever the workload API object you are using (Deployment, StatefulSet or DaemonSet) the Persistent Volume Claim is defined within the Pod specification, as follows:

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ vi create-pod.yaml

kind: Pod
[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ packet_write_wait: Connection to 18.205.188.55 port 22: Broken pipe
kind: Pod
apiVersion: v1
metadata:
  name: nfs-pod
spec:
  containers:
    - name: nfs-demo
      image: alpine
      volumeMounts:
      - name: nfs-demo
          mountPath: /data/nfs
      command: ["/bin/sh"]
      args: ["-c", "sleep 500000"]
  volumes:
  - name: nfs-demo
    persistentVolumeClaim:
      claimName: nfs-demo
[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl create -f create-pod.yaml
pod/nfs-pod created

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl get pods -o wide -n nfs-demo
NAME      READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE   IP              NODE                         NOMINATED NODE   READINESS GATES
nfs-pod   1/1     Running   0          9s    192.168.37.68   ip-10-3-0-143.ec2.internal              

Let’s now create an empty file into the container volume mount path and see if it is has been created on the NFS server.

[ec2-user@ip-10-3-1-217 ~]$ kubectl -n nfs-demo exec nfs-pod touch /data/test-nfs.sh

We can see now, in the NFS server that the file has been properly stored.

Press Release
New Study: Only 11% of Brands Can Effectively Use Customer Data Independent study highlights the challenges of bringing together different data types to create a unified customer profile

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Nov 18, 2019

Despite all the hype around customer data platforms (CDPs), a new study conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by Oracle found that brands are struggling to create a unified view of customers. The November 2019 study, “Getting Customer Data Management Right,” which includes insights from 337 marketing and advertising professionals in North America and Europe, found that brands want to unify customer data but face significant challenges in bringing different data types together. 

Brands Want to Centralize Customer Data

As consumers expect more and more personalized experiences, the ability to effectively leverage customer data is shifting from a “nice-to-have” to table stakes:

  • 75% of marketing and advertising professionals believe the ability to “improve the experience of our customers” is a critical or important objective when it comes to the use of customer engagement data.
  • 69% believe it is important to create a unified customer profile across channels and devices.
  • 64% stated that they adopted a CDP to develop a single source of truth so they could understand customers better.

Unified Customer Profiles Lead to Better Business Results

Brands that effectively leverage unified customer profiles are more likely to experience revenue growth, increased profitability and higher customer lifetime values:

  • Brands that use CDPs effectively are 2.5 times more likely to increase customer lifetime value.
  • When asked about the benefits of unified data management, the top two benefits were increased specific functional effectiveness (e.g., advertising, marketing, or sales) and increased channel effectiveness (e.g., email, mobile, web, social media).

The Marketing and Advertising Opportunity

While marketing and advertising professionals understand the critical role unified customer profiles play in personalizing the customer experience, the majority of brands are not able to effectively use a wide variety of data types:

  • 71% of marketing and advertising professionals say a unified customer profile is important or critical to personalization.
  • Only 11% of brands can effectively use a wide variety of data types in a unified customer profile to personalize experiences, provide a consistent experience across channels, and generally improve customer lifetime value and other business outcomes.
  • 69% expect to increase CDP investments at their organization over the next two years.

“A solid data foundation is the most fundamental ingredient to success in today’s Experience Economy, where consumers expect relevant, timely and consistent experiences,” said Rob Tarkoff, executive vice president and general manager, Oracle CX. “At Oracle we have been helping customers manage, secure and protect their data assets for more than 40 years, and this unique experience puts us in the perfect position to help brands leverage all their customer data – digital, marketing, sales, service, commerce, financial and supply chain – to make every customer interaction matter.”
