Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory: Adventures with SwingBench TPC-DS
Limited Capacity seats available

Session Abstract:

Originally introduced in Release 12.1.0.2, Database In-Memory (DBIM) offers the ability for analytic queries to sift through billions of rows at incredible speed because data is now retained in columnar format in the In-Memory Column Store (IMCS). Oracle Database 12cR2 dramatically expands the capabilities of DBIM, making it even simpler to implement, monitor, and manage while extending its reach to more complex execution plans, expanding its utility to Active Data Guard (ADG) instances, and enabling capture of frequently-evaluated expressions in the Expression Statistics Store (ESS).

Session Outline:

Through presentations and examples using Swingbench’s latest TPC-DS query generation features, this session will illustrate how Oracle 12.2 Database In-Memory:

- Dramatically speeds execution of analytic queries through In-Memory Column Store (IMCS)

- improves the management and monitoring of the IMCS

- Improves complex query execution through improvements like Expressions Statistics Store, In-Memory Filtering, and Parallel Execution

 

Agenda:

  1. Database In-Memory: A Quick Review
  2. Dynamic IMCS Resizing
  3. In-Memory Fast Start
  4. Extending IMCS to Exadata Smart Flash Cache
  5. IMCS, Heat Maps, and Intelligent Evictions
  6. IMCS in Active Data Guard (ADG)
  7. In-Memory Aggregation (IMA) Enhancements
  8. Improved In-Memory Filtering
  9. In-Memory Compression Units (IMCUs) and Parallel Execution
  10. In-Memory Expressions and the Expressions Statistics Store (ESS)
  11. Conclusions


Objective #1:

The attendee will understand how to leverage IMCS’s latest features to dramatically speed the execution of complex analytic queries against millions of rows.

Objective #2:

The attendee will discover how to deploy IMCS against a physical standby database that’s running Active Data Guard (ADG).

Objective #3:

The attendee will learn how to leverage the latest version of SwingBench to generate a representative TPC-DS workload for equitable comparisons of application performance against an Oracle 12cR2 databases.

Session Prerequisites:

To gain the most from this presentation, attendees should be familiar with Oracle Database 12cR1 and the basics of IMCS and columnar projection. Knowledge of Exadata concepts would also be beneficial.

DBAs and Developers. From arch-enemies to superheroes
Limited Capacity seats available

For decades, developers and DBAs have battled over who controls the world. With each new development paradigm, the battle flares again as developers seek greater flexibility, less structure and faster turnaround to deploy, whilst DBA's seek a more methodical approach, they having seen the wreckage that can sometimes result from "fast and loose".  But does that just make the DBA an inhibitor to productivity ?
Who is right ?  Perhaps both are ? Can developers and DBAs can peacefully coexist ?  Maybe with the right technology and the right knowledge, they can have both.
In this session, using real examples, we will explain how to integrate the demands of the modern-day developer with the Oracle Database.

Limited Capacity seats available

Over the past couple years, the use of open-source database management systems has dramatically increased – so much, in fact, that experts are predicting a dramatic market shift from commercial, closed-source DBMSs to OSDBMSs within the next few years. With 31 percent year-over-year market growth since 2013, the numbers speak for themselves.

 

Gartner has weighed-in: “By 2018, more than 70 percent of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS, and 50 percent of existing relational DBMS instances will have been converted or will be in process.”

 

During this interactive session, you’ll see how our newest Toad product, Toad Edge, is addressing this new space. You’ll see how we’re supporting your organization’s commitment to open source RDBMS with proven commercial tooling to help you ramp up on MySQL and ensure quicker time to value. Toad Edge represents the next generation of Toad tooling – lightweight, flexible and extensible – simplifying MySQL development and administration, whether running in a Windows or Mac OS X environment.

 

In this session, we’ll demo some of the coolest features Toad Edge offers, including:

  • Advanced code completion, SQL autocomplete and formatting
  • MySQL JSON data browser/editor
  • Dynamic schema compare and sync
  • User privilege management
  • And more

Join us to see firsthand how the new Toad Edge will give you confidence in your enterprise MySQL commitment.

Continuous Integration for app & database in Oracle Cloud
Limited Capacity seats available

Continuous Integration is a hot topic among devops and developers for the advantages it offers towards developer agility. Unfortunately, most CI efforts stop at the application tier making database changes a manual process. Thus any application changes that involve database schema/code slow down the development process and also induce risk related to manual errors.

This session intends to demonstrate capabilities of Oracle cloud services including database, application containers and developer cloud service to quickly build a continuous integration tool chain that handles app + database changes in an agile framework. Using an commerce web application use case, participants will learn how to rapidly clone databases, provision application containers and use version control for application and database code to deploy a functional CI tool chain within minutes in the Oracle Cloud.

IFRS 15
Limited Capacity seats available

International Financial Reporting Standards 15 (IFRS 15) is a new Revenue recognition standard, jointly issued by International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).

This new  standard creates a five step model for revenue recognition from contracts with customers. The core principle of IFRS 15 is about defining a contract with distinct individual performance obligations, associating a transaction price for each of those obligations and recognizing the revenue against the fulfillment of the respective obligations. The introduction of this standard will have impact on organizations across various industries as it brings in a major shift in the way revenue is currently being recognized. It will also necessitate changes in systems and processes that are followed by organizations.In its endeavor to support its customers to embrace this change, Oracle EBS Projects is coming up with an enhancement .This session will give an overview of the same.

A Roadmap to Changing Accounting Calendar Year from Apr-Mar to Jan-Dec - for India
Limited Capacity seats available

In near future, we may be seeing a change in the current Indian financial calendar structure. It's been validated for the feasibility of shifting the financial year to January 1 from the current April 1. Meaning, we are looking at a change of financial year from the current Apr-Mar to Jan-Dec year.

Once the financial calendar structure change is found feasible, accepted and decided to be implemented at the regulatory level, then the challenge lies with the software tool / products to quickly migrate the underlying existing calendar structure setup to a newer one and seamlessly converting the related data to synchronize with the change ; thereby enabling the customers who use the software tool / products to capture their financial data to easily migrate to the new calendar structure.

Presentation and discussion will be around how to meet this challenge in Oracle EBS Implementations, a clearer roadmap to changing the Accounting Calendar structure defined for Indian financial year.

Why Isn't My Query Using an Index? An Introduction to SQL Performance
Limited Capacity seats available

Why isn't my query using an index? is a common question people have when tuning SQL.

This talk explores the factors that influence the optimizer's decision behind this question. It does so by comparing fetching rows from a database table to finding all the red M&Ms their packets. It contrasts using an index range scan and a full table scan to do this.

It introduces the concepts of blocks and the clustering factor. It discusses how these affect the optimizer's calculations. It goes on to demonstrate how these concepts work in practice using real SQL queries.

This session is intended for developers who want to learn the basics of how the optimizer chooses between an index range or full table scan and how to make their SQL run quickly!

Stop Guessing, Start Analyzing: New Analytic View Features in Oracle Database 12cR2
Limited Capacity seats available

Session Abstract:

As experienced Oracle DBAs know, building a Data Warehouse is just the beginning of any successful application for performing complex analytics – you’ve also got to build the proper analytic views, fact tables, dimensions, and queries to make sense of the DW’s data. Oracle 12cR2 now provides a simple way to build out just the right objects for an analytics environment using just a few simple commands. Best of all, these new objects can incorporate all the needed measures and calculations so that an application end-user can take advantage of precisely-defined data models without having to construct complex views on their own, thus limiting the chance of producing erroneous analyses through a simple mistake like a missing join or filter.

  

Session Outline:

Through presentations and demonstrations, this session illustrates how to leverage the latest features of 12cR2 Analytic Views to:

- Build complex hierarchical relationships between data elements

- Enhance analysis techniques for use across multiple dimensions

- Leverage built-in functionality to quickly construct measures and metrics with a simple set of commands

 

  1. 1.     Introduction to Built-In 12cR2 Analytics Features
  2. 2.     Constructing Hierarchies and Relationships: CREATE HIERARCHY
  3. 3.     Adding Enhanced Dimensions: CREATE ATTRIBUTE DIMENSION
  4. 4.     Building Analytic Views: CREATE ANALYTIC VIEW
  5. 5.     Putting It All Together: Examples of the Power of Analytic Queries
  6. 6.     Conclusions

 

Objective #1:

The attendee will understand how to build complex hierarchical relationships and dimensions with simple 12cR2 commands.

 

Objective #2:

The attendee will discover how to quickly create complex analytic measures and metrics without having to build equally-complex queries.

 

Session Prerequisites:

To gain the most from this presentation, attendees should be familiar with basic data warehousing (DW) and decision support systems (DSS) concepts, including hierarchies, dimensions, fact tables, and materialized views.
