Plugging your Data Warehouse into the Cloud


As well as providing applications with more-modern characteristics that businesses need to compete more successfully, the automation
provided by Oracle Cloud relieves customers from the burden of having to perform manual procedures that also sometimes result in
costly human error. During his presentation on Tuesday Larry Ellison stated that:
Automation is a huge dierence. When you move from on-premise or infrastructure as a service to platform as a service, your costs
drop precipitously because Oracles so much easier to use.
Getting onto the Cloud using Oracle Multitenant is very simple. Administrators can utilize familiar upgrade-in-place methods to upgrade
existing databases and plug them into a multitenant container database or use data integration tools such as Data Pump and GoldenGate
to migrate data to pluggable databases.

Administrators can use Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to simplify the management of Oracle Multitenant from database
creation, to workload resource management, problem diagnosis and more. This creates the perfect environment for delivering an
enterprise data warehouse alongside departmental data marts and self-contained analytical sandboxes that are now a vital part of data
exploration within the logical data warehouse (For more information about building a logical data warehouse please refer to the session by
Brian Beckman - DW Platform Manager, Procter & Gamble - from this year's conference, click here).

Oracle In-Memory: The Game Changer in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence
Speaker

Holger Friedrich - CTO, sumIT AG

With 12c, Oracle adds a columnar in-memory data store to Oracle Database. This new feature results in a massive acceleration of query
execution. Even better, the columnar store is integrated transparently. Not a single line of application code, ETL, or reporting logic has to
be changed to benefit from it. This presentation assesses the application of the in-memory columnar store to the areas of data
warehousing and business intelligence. Live demonstrations show typical tasks that benefit significantly from the columnar store, and
low-hanging fruits are identified. Thus, attendees will get a clear picture of why it is to their best advantage to use the option in their
environments and how they can get the most out of it.

Using the In-Memory Columnar Store to Perform Real-Time Analysis of CERN Data
Speaker

Emil Pilecki - DBA, CERN


Manuel Marquez - data scientist, CERN

To help physicists at CERN analyze their data more eciently, a study was done of the use of database technology to store and analyze
data recorded by the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. Because reconstructed physics objects are described with hundreds of
variables, this physics analysis database has very wide tables. Each physicist typically requires a unique combination of variables to find
the events of interest for a particular analysis, making it dicult to choose appropriate indexes for this data. This presentation shows how
Oracles new in-memory columnar store helps improve performance when analyzing this type of data.

Doing PL/SQL from SQL: Correctness and Performance


Speaker

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Bryn Llewellyn -xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Distinguished Product
Manager,xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Oracle

A SQL statement that calls a PL/SQL function is slower than one that defines the same result by using only SQL expressions. The culprit
is the SQL to PL/SQL round-trip. Its cost can be reduced by marking the function deterministic, by invoking it in a scalar subquery, by
using the PL/SQL function result cache, or by some other caching scheme. With caching, you cant predict the result set if the function
isnt pure, so it would seem that caching should be used with caution. This session shows that a function must have certain properties to
be safe even without cachingin other words that the possible semantic eect of caching is a red herring. You cant rely on the ordering
and number of function invocation any more than you can rely on group by to do ordering.

Predictive Analytics with Oracle Data Mining


Speaker

Bryan Hodge - Global Leader, Customer Intelligence, Oracle


Vinay Deshmukh - Senior Director, Oracle

This session presents three case studies related to predictive analytics with the Oracle Data Mining feature of Oracle Advanced Analytics.
Service contracts cancellation avoidance with Oracle Data Mining is about predicting the contracts at risk of cancellation at least nine
months in advance. Predicting hardware opportunities that have a high likelihood of being won means identifying such opportunities at
least four months in advance to provide visibility into suppliers of required materials. Finally, predicting cloud customer churn involves
identifying the customers that are not as likely to renew.

Advanced Predictive Analytics for Database Developers on Oracle


Speaker

Pirama Arumuga nainar - Senior Software Engineer, Oracle


Ekine Akuiyibo - Software Engineer, Oracle
Debabrata Sarkar - Senior Engineering Manager, Oracle

Traditional database applications use SQL queries to filter, aggregate, and summarize data. This is called descriptive analytics. The next
level is predictive analytics, where hidden patterns are discovered to answer questions that give unique insights that cannot be derived
with descriptive analytics. Businesses are increasingly using machine learning techniques to perform predictive analytics, which helps
them better understand past data, predict future trends, and enable better decision-making. This session discusses how to use machine
learning algorithms such as regression, classification, and clustering to solve a few selected business use cases.

Management, xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Oracle
Garret Swart - Architect, Oracle

For most companies, big data feeds include point-of-sale records; call detail records; and financial, medical, and intelligence data stored
in Oracle databases, but MapReduce algorithms and patterns such as clustering (k-means), classification (naive Bayes), and
recommenders are very hard to implement with SQL alone. Furthermore, shipping data to Hadoop incurs latency and carries scalability,
integrity, and security issues. This session describes how to implement near-real-time analytics with the In-Database MapReduce feature
of Oracle Database 12c, which accesses and processes data in place, directly in RDBMS tables, with Hadoop and SQL. The ability to
reuse existing Hadoop assets and exposing MapReduce job steps as SQL functions shield DBAs and developers from having to learn
Hadoop.

The term big data draws a lot of attention, but behind the hype there's a simple story. For decades, companies have been making
business decisions based on transactional data stored in relational databases. Beyond that critical data, however, is a potential
treasure trove of less structured data: weblogs, social media, email, sensors, and photographs that can be mined for useful
information.
Oracle oers the broadest and most integrated portfolio of products to help you acquire and organize these diverse data sources
and analyze them alongside your existing data to find new insights and capitalize on hidden relationships.
