Turning Relational Database Tables into Spark Data Sources
Big Data Analytics requires unstructured data (a.k.a. Big Data) but also Master data generally stored in RDBMS tables.

Apache Spark furnishes the Spark SQL interface for querying unstructured data using SQL. This interface provisions the Datasource API with a JDBC interface for accessing relational databases. How to join RDBMS tables with Big data using Spark SQL without moving data over?

This session describes an implementation of the Spark Datasource API and explains the optimizations that (i) allow parallel and direct access to the RDBMS database (with the option of controlling the number of concurrent connections); (ii) introspect the RDBMS table, generate partitions of Spark JDBCRDDs based on the split pattern and rewrite Spark SQL queries into the RDBMS SQL; (iii) use hooks in the JDBC driver for faster type conversions; (iv) push down predicates to the RDBMS, prune partitions based on the where clause to reduce the amount of data returned to the RDBMS.

Architecting for Analytics
This session answers architecture questions related to the overall structure and strategy for an enterprise analytics system. How do we design a data warehouse for analytics purposes? What do we integrate into a central warehouse or maintain in separate data marts? How do we integrate long term storage systems that we need to query only occasionally? Data lakes? Big Data?? What are the tradeoffs with different tools and how much do we invest in custom code? How do we integrate real-time data streaming? What ETL and integration strategies are we going to use? Where and how do we extend our raw data with calculated measures and analytic functions? How do we create a system that has a strong foundation, but can grow and evolve over time? This presentation will draw from real-world data architecture projects that were designed with analytics in mind.

Sneak Preview: Graph Cloud Services and Spatial Console for Database Cloud
Cloud services change the way we provision, deploy and perform analytic application development. They can simplify the development and deployment experience and make it possible for developers and data scientists to use analytics in which they had little or no expertise.  

Two new planned cloud services from Oracle for spatial and graph analysis offer low-code and no-code capabilities. The spatial cloud services include no-code spatial analysis, automated geo-enrichment of data, visual map analysis, and simplified spatial application creation for analysts and developers. The graph cloud services provide an analyst and developer studio with dozens of prebuilt, low-code graph algorithms with wizards to automate modeling, loading, and visualizing graph data and analysis results.

These mapping and graph analysis services offer over hundreds of geospatial and graph analysis functions.  Data access will be available through rich APIs, along with SQL-based spatial and graph query languages.

A Practical Business Approach to Implementing Oracle Analytics Cloud
Implementing and Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) ecosystem can be a challenge. When successfully implemented they can deliver significant business value. However, may BI implementations fail because they are long, complex and ultimately do not meet the business's needs. We discuss an approach for reducing technical complexity and ensuring business needs drive the implementation of the solution. Using the Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) offers the organizations a robust platform for implementation a business intelligence ecosystem and accelerates the solution cycle.

This presentation looks to provide relevant information to anyone looking to implement a Cloud based Oracle BI ecosystem to support organizational business processes. Initially we will conduct a cost benefit comparison of on premise verses cloud based solutions. Also, this presentation will provide a overview of the Oracle Analytics Cloud features and functionality. Then we will review a full life cycle methodology.

Powerful Spatial Features You Never Knew Existed in Oracle Spatial and Graph
Even expert users may not know some of the powerful functions available in Oracle Spatial and Graph, or how to optimize common spatial requirements. I often find myself working with customers that implement spatial requirements the way they had to with other spatial solutions, instead of the best way they can by leveraging powerful unique capabilities available in Oracle Spatial and Graph. Many times the reason is "I didn't know that existed". This session will cover how Oracle Spatial and Graph natively integrates with key Oracle Database features such as transparent data encryption (TDE), redaction, partitioning (all types), and also powerful nearest neighbor strategies, new spatial functions introduced in 12c, as well as an overview of spatial functions you never knew existed. Customer use cases and code examples will be included. This session is intended for a technical audience, but others will also gain useful insights on the powerful capabilities of Oracle Spatial and Graph.

Accelerating Joins and Aggregations on the Oracle In-Memory Database
Analytic workloads are dominated by joins, aggregations, and scans. In-Memory columnar databases have optimized scans using compressed data formats and SIMD vectorization techniques, but have made little impact to the rest of the query execution plan. The Oracle Database In-Memory (DBIM) Option introduced new SQL execution operators that accelerate analytic queries by optimizing aggregation over joins for star schemas. Group-by expressions are pushed down into the scans of dimension tables, creating a unique key per distinct group called a Dense Grouping Key (DGK). A Key Vector is allocated that maps join keys to DGKs, which is used to filter non-matching rows during the fact table scan. Passing rows are then aggregated directly on compressed codes into DGK-indexed result buffers using SIMD. Our solution replaces traditional join and group-by processing (bloom filters, hash table build/probe, etc) with blazing fast inlined scan operators, improving query elapsed time by as much as 10X.

Forecasting the storm recovery resource allocation in electric utility network
A leading cause of power outages in the US is weather driven equipment failure events. Oracle utility customers are seeking machine learning techniques (recommended by the USDOE) to improve real-time risk assessment for critical assets based upon incoming weather forecast. Given an accurate prediction for the location, type, and amount of the storm-damaged equipment, the utility company can position the right number of specialized crews and material resources ahead of time. We develop a novel machine-learning model trained on the history of asset failures and reported weather. Since the weather-reporting stations might be far from the assets and some weather data measurements might be missing, we interpolate the weather conditions at the asset locations using a triangularization function computed with a barycentric coordinates technique implementation. We report performance comparison of multiple machine learning models to recommend the best damage prediction tool.

Analyze the Global Knowledge Graph with Visualization, Cloud, & Spatial Tech
Every 15 minutes the world’s news is captured into the Global Knowledge Graph. The data set contains nearly a trillion sentiment snapshots and more than 1.5 billion location references. 
Oracle ingested the data set on the Bare Metal Cloud to create a data warehouse. The project was designed to meet the needs of big data users, such as cyber threat and defense intelligence analysts. They require analysis of the connections between people, places, events, content and sentiment embedded in traditional data sources. They also need a pipeline and robust visualizations to filter the data, carve out relevant subsets and save the results to a property graph database for further analysis.
This session will describe the challenges, complexities, and technologies used to create a 35TB data warehouse, and filter, visualize, analyze and write results back, with a single click, to the Oracle Spatial and Graph database using Tom Sawyer Perspectives.

With the drastic rise in cloud offerings from Oracle, developers and users are scrambling to integrate data from on-premise and cloud solutions. This can range from small file transfers containing financial data to solutions for tools like Essbase Cloud Services, to large data sets containing millions of records sourced from a data warehouse loaded into Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC). We also find ourselves integrating across cloud applications (for example, sourcing data from financial systems for reporting and analytics in other cloud tools). This presentation focuses on the gears that move the data, and presents an array of options and best practices to manage data integration and data movement. Come learn about a variety of methodologies available, as well as a cross-product overview. Finally, hear about real world examples, and how data integration actually works with various Oracle cloud products.

Follow the Money: A Graph Model for Monitoring Bank Transactions
Examining the flow of bank transactions is key to analyzing financial operations such as fraud detection, client segmentation, personalized offers, risk modeling, client retention, etc. In particular, bank analysts are challenged to understand the behavior of companies that make large bank deposits and then transfer significant sums – to entities both inside and outside the bank’s network. They are also challenged by the limitation of relational and traditional BI tools to effectively model and analyze the money flows between a customer, its bank, and external 3rd parties. Banco Galicia has addressed this challenge by modeling money flows as a complex graph of transactions. The result is a powerful approach to support the analysis and visualization of money flows across a large network of bank-affiliated transactions. This session will desdescribe how Banco Galicia uses Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph to understand the topology and behavior of money transfers.

Graph Modeling and Analysis for Complex Automotive Data Management
Mazda is an automotive manufacturer that routinely needs to link and analyze data from different sources like production, sales, inventory, and logistics. Most manufacturers use a bill of materials (BoM) to provide a master system for parts and their relationships. However, BoM developers have long realized the difficulties of modeling the complex relationships between components using a RDBMS. Moreover, BoM data must also align with master (or transaction) data from disparate IT systems. This paper highlights a novel approach to apply a graph database to create a flexible BoM of interconnected auto components. This system uses the property graph database and in-memory analytics in Oracle Spatial and Graph. We found the graph data model to be more effective at modeling, querying, and visualizing complex relationships in our data, while also integrating with different production systems. We will also share performance results of complicated pattern matching queries using PGQL._x000D_

Operationalizing Machine Learning
Most data science projects begin with data, “tools” and scripts but fail to get beyond the data scientist. They hit a wall when attempting to “operationalize” the models. Netflix never implemented the algorithm that won the Netflix $1 Million Challenge. This dichotomy between enterprise and algorithms is eliminated when algorithms are built into the data management platforms. By “moving algorithms to the data”, Oracle Database and Big Data Clouds are now data management and advanced analytical platforms. “Robots” can replicate human tasks by capturing best practices discovered in the data and automating that process using machine learning deployed models. Developers use SQL, R and Oracle Data Miner UI to build, evaluate and deploy advanced analytical methodologies. See how to go beyond “tools” to enabling RPA (robotic process automation) applications. Several Oracle “predictive” Applications will be shown as examples._x000D_

Discovering Tax Fraud in Florence, Italy with a Semantic Graph Database

One of the most cost-effective activities Italian town halls are supposed to carry out is tax evaders detection. That is why the city of Florence asked Evodevo to develop the Florence Fraud Detection System, a Decision Support System to help municipalities employees in automating the detection process.

The Florence Fraud Detection System consists of several databases merging into an Oracle 12c db with Spatial & Graph option with a description logic rules layer on top. The rules were derived from a study about the tax fraud domain in the specific section of Italian citizens resident abroad, in order to classify the citizens of Florence into different levels of suspiciousness. The system includes a Joseki SPARQL endpoint customization with pre-written semantic queries.

The session will consist of: an introduction to the context; a technical overview; a system demonstration.

Spark Streaming vs. Kafka Streams - two stream processing platforms compared
Independent of the source of data, the integration and analysis of event streams gets more important in the world of sensors, social media streams and Internet of Things. Events have to be accepted quickly and reliably, they have to be distributed and analyzed, often with many consumers or systems interested in all or part of the events. In this session we compare two popular Streaming Analytics solutions: Spark Streaming and Kafka Streams.
Spark is fast and general engine for large-scale data processing and has been designed to provide a more efficient alternative to Hadoop MapReduce. Spark Streaming brings Spark's language-integrated API to stream processing, letting you write streaming applications the same way you write batch jobs. It supports both Java and Scala. 
Kafka Streams is the stream processing solution which is part of Kafka. It is provided as a Java library and by that can be easily integrated with any Java application.

You've heard of all this before, but it is hardly ever completely implemented. The steps from Insight to Action are hard to capture with Action Links as we try to do with Business Intelligence. But when you use the capabilities of platforms such as BICS and PCS the implementation and adjustments can be very easily accomplished. You can even empower your business users to adjust the solution themselves. Creating BPM / BAM / BI solutions can now be done with webbased tools only that appear like low-code solutions. Can you use this to empower the business to stay connected and stay on track with your ever changing environment?

The world of business analytics is rapidly changing. Technology is focused on bringing more and more functionality to end users and automating or obscuring many of the tasks that were the cornerstone of a number of technology careers. As the skills that were in extremely high demand 5 or 10 years ago become less valued in the marketplace what skills should you focus your efforts on today, that take advantage of the skills you already have, to continue to advance your career as a technologist? 
In this panel discussion thought leaders from the analytics industry will exchange views on the changing landscape of business analytics and technology and share their impressions of the current and future state of the industry. The panel, with participation from attendees, will try to separate the hype from reality about what skills really matter and how to stay relevant and advance your career in the ever-changing world of analytics.

How To Build A Business Analytics Business Case When The Future Is Cloudy
We all know that IT spend is getting cloudier and cloudier these days, with software, infrastructure and platform spend moving to the cloud…but we are also all in situations where we need to make the best use of our organization's investment in existing applications and infrastructure! In this session, we will discuss practical advice for making the business case to move to cloud as appropriate for BI/business analytics and related software/infrastructure/platform solutions, with a detailed conversation around when cloud makes sense financially...and when it doesn't. We will discuss real-life case studies on companies that moved to the cloud; companies that chose (near-to-mid-term) to stay fully on-premise; and companies that made the business case for a hybrid environment for the foreseeable future. Learn how you can evaluate what makes sense for you and your organization!

A Cognitive Study on Data Visualization
With data volumes exploding and a greater variety of data available,business users want to explore more data and discover new insights that they can apply readily to improve business strategies, operations and customer engagement.With easier data exploration,users are seeking to increase the depth and frequency of their data analysis.This is a significant change because users who engage in analytics processes interact with data differently from what has been the norm with traditional BI.Rather than just consume data,they ask questions,try different views and approaches,build predictive models, and more.Supporting users’ forays into analytics is critical because it’s becoming clear in nearly every industry that organizations need to be more analytical to compete effectively.Visual analytics can help users become more productive with data by using software to integrate data analysis capabilities with modern,graphical ways of expressing information.Such technologies give users more power. This study that examines experiences with BI, visual analytics, and visual data discovery to uncover how organizations can move forward to make users more productive with data and use technologies to improve collaboration. This study explores where users are succeeding with BI and analytics and where visual analytics can improve their decisions. Currently, users are not fully satisfied with their ability to use visual analytics functionality. Training and education are needed to help them understand how to use visualization effectively and exploit new methods of data analysis.

So you want to use Oracle Business Intelligence but your organization doesn't have an Oracle Database, or maybe you do but most of your data sources are stored in a warehouse such as Redshift or Snowflake.

At first glance it might seem that Oracle BI is no longer an option, but don't worry -- it is. In this presentation, we'll guide the audience through the nuanced complexity faced when installing a JDBC Driver for the purpose of connecting Oracle Business Intelligence to a database that isn't Oracle. While we use Redshift as an example, the shared insights will be helpful for anyone connecting Oracle BI to any warehouse or database.

Leveraging Analytics in Higher Education
Big data is still a trending topic in higher education and other industries. While understanding the importance of big data is critical, most universities are not leveraging the power of small data. Many data warehouse implementations in higher education fail as they only provide reports that do not aid in improving daily business functions. This session will highlight various technologies and strategies in incorporating data and analytics into the institutional culture. Business intelligence is not just getting sophisticated reports but being integrated into the applications that students, faculty, advisors, and staff use daily. Data and analytics should be used to drive processes and provide alerts when interventions are needed.

Analyzing Blockchain and Bitcoin Transaction Data as Graph
Blockchain technology and Bitcoin will potentially revolutionize business transactions. Blockchain offers a robust, decentralized platform for privacy and trust. It underlies the digital crypto-currency Bitcoin, which can be exchanged freely and anonymously, without a central authority. Bitcoin transactions - recorded publicly, and growing at a rate of 100,000's of transactions per day - provide an invaluable dataset to gain insight into the behavior of digital currency and the underlying Blockchain technology. Blocks, transactions with potential multiple inputs and outputs, and flow of bitcoins between addresses, form a sophisticated real-time graph. This talk details a pipeline used to gather bitcoin transaction data and analyze it with powerful graph cloud database technologies.

Analytic platform with a hybrid approach of home grown and vendor tools
Adopting any new technology is daunting, in addition to peer pressure, there is also a need to size up as data grows, all without breaking the bank. The original BIWA 2015 presentation was on how any IT shop can build a commodity Hadoop cluster with Dell servers, Redhat Linux, Infiband network cards and Cloudera HDFS. Most of the coding was in Java, and OLH (Oracle Loader for Hadoop) was used to load data into an Oracle 12c in-memory table (presented at OOW15). The expertise of Computer Science faculty, staff and students was used for the full project with vendor support.The group has since enhanced the cluster with SSD (Solid State Drives) and SPARK2, and written Python Spark Machine Learning code to  analyze Gigabyte size aircraft  logs. The visualization of the data using R-Oracle has been planned for the future.

Ingesting streaming data into Graph database
This talk presents the experience of a customer project where we built a stream-based ingestion into a graph database. It is one thing to load the graph first and then querying it. But it is another story if the data to be added to the graph is constantly streaming in, while querying it. Data is easy to add, if each single message ends up as a new vertex in the graph. But if a message consists of hierarchical information, it most often means creating multiple new vertices as well adding edges to connect this information. What if a node already exists in the graph? Do we create it again or do we rather add edges which link to the existing node? Creating multiple nodes for the same real-life entity is not the best choice, so we have to check for existence first. We end up requiring multiple operations against the graph, which demonstrated to be a bottle neck. This talk presents the implementation of an ingestion pipeline and the design choice we made to improve performance.

Pilot your Oracle Business Intelligence 12c Cloud Migration on Virtual Box
You know you need to get started on that Oracle Business Intelligence upgrade from 11g to 12c so you do a “lift and shift” to the cloud, but IT resources are tight, plus you’re not really sure how everything is going to fit together and you are going to have to wait for the Database and Server Administrators to get the environments set up. No problem, just use your laptop or PC to pilot the entire migration using Virtual Box and Sample Applications. In no time you will be up and running, using the migration and baseline validation tools, connecting to your real data, verifying dashboards and running reports in 12c. Once that is taken care of you can proceed to the cloud.

Headache Due To Merger or Acquisition? Here's The Prescription for Financials
This session will describe a customer success story where the customer needed to quickly replace the budget/forecasting and financial reporting systems of a large business unit they had acquired (or they would face severe penalties). The customer is a large financial services company that is based in Jersey City, NJ (2.9bn annual revenues).

The customer chose to implement PBCS and BICS and have them run on Oracle DbaaS. Apps Associates performed the implementation and developed near real time integration across PBCS, BICS, EBS R12 and Workday. Apps Associates’ BICS Financial Accelerator was used to load data from EBS R12 into BICS/DbaaS and provide financial reporting. BICS was implemented as the single BI solution for all financial reporting and analysis - including drill down to detail.

The PBCS/BICS platform is now being rolled out to other areas of the organization.

Why IoT is the killer use case for AutoML
While AI/ML has matured enough to solve many real-world problems effectively, this process typically requires close interactions between three separate skill sets – the domain expert, the data scientist and the programmer. A typical IoT user is a line-of-business person such as a Plant Supervisor or a Fleet Manager. AutoML enables automatic selection of the most appropriate algorithm that suits the domain problem learned based on the interactions with domain expert. Also, AutoML automatically selects the hyper parameters and tunes the models without requiring data scientist skills. Furthermore, AutoML automates the repetitive analytics needed for retraining models warranted by the high velocity IoT data. Therefore, AutoML is the key enabler of analytics in the industrial IoT. Since the typical business benefits in IoT involve significant savings, IoT is the killer use case for AutoML. We will present how Oracle IoT Cloud applies AutoML for industrial IoT problems.

Measuring Published Citation using Graph Modeling and Analysis
Research organizations, along with their funding agencies, routinely need to measure the performance of their organization. The application of scientific citation indexing is a widely used metric for evaluating the success of a research organization. This paper highlights the novel use of graph modeling, analytics and visualization to improve this metric of scientific performance. Our approach models an index of published scientific publication and citations as a connected graph. We used the Oracle in-memory graph analytics engine (PGX) to carry out graph analysis, statistical inferencing, and visual exploratory analysis. Our results illustrate how these graph modeling combined with statistical analysis, such as stochastic block model (SBM), can improve the measurement and evaluation of scientific research.

Tektronix is a world-leading manufacturer of test and measurement equipment. Like many global organizations with complex business operations, the process of bringing together data resources for analysis is a challenging but critically important business function. Several business units at Tektronix used independent BI platforms, leading to integration challenges. A fast-track project run by Vlamis Software Solutions using Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) data visualizations consolidated these disparate systems into one modernized their business analytic platform. This all built upon the good work done in various departmental silos as well as their data warehouse and legacy OBIEE system. Come with your questions about how to balance the technology preferences of different functional user groups, how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your current OBIEE implementation, and how to build momentum during a modernization initiative.

How Search Augments Analytics
Traditional Business intelligence (BI) has delivered a great value to organizations, enabling them to better data-based decision making. However, today the speed to make business decisions has outpaced the traditional BI's ability to adapt and answer quickly new questions.

In this talk we introduce a very powerful engine like Apache Solr and demonstrate how easy it is to set it up and start getting answers right away. Since a picture is better than a thousand words we will also introduce Banana (a fork of Kibana) as its graphical front end for data analysis.

Finally, We will also discuss about Solr Analytics 2.0 which, provides the ability to search on live data perfectly complementing the use of a traditional data warehouse database.

Spatial Analytics with Spark & Big Data
Sensor feeds and social media data contain much latent location information such as addresses, place names, and GPS coordinates. How can you uncover those location relationships and patterns for better business insights? How can build applications to track moving objects in real time? Learn about spatial technologies for Spark, Hadoop, and NoSQL, and how to build analytic applications using Java. Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph offers a set of analytic algorithms, services, and data models that support big data workloads. Data scientists and developers can be more productive by using dozens of prebuilt spatial functions and services. Users can harmonize data and group results based on spatial relationships, track moving objects, and apply spatial services to cleanse, filter, normalize, and process geospatial data sets, and easily perform spatial queries with new Hive and Spark SQL features.

Using GeoJSON in the Oracle Database
Location and other geographical information is traditionally stored in Oracle databases using specialized data types, such as the SDO_GEOMETRY type. That data type is powerful and flexible, but can be difficult to use. A modern alternative is to use a JSON-based encoding, called GeoJSON instead. GeoJSON is a lightweight format suited to data exchange and transfer, popular for reading and publishing spatial data on the Web, in Big Data, and for the Internet of Things.

This session will explain the way GeoJSON encodes a variety of geographical objects, from simple points to complex multi-polygonal structures. It will also explain how those structures can be indexesd, and how they can be used in spatial analytics, in isolation or in conjunction with classic SDO_GEOMETRY types.
Finally we will show how the GeoJSON objects can be displayed on a map.

Add Streaming Analytics to your Legacy Application with Apache Kafka
While relational databases are still the king of transactional processing systems, they have a hard time keeping up with the increasing demand for real-time analytics. In this session we will build and demonstrate an end-to-end data processing pipeline. We will discuss how to turn changes in database state into events and stream them into Apache Kafka. We will explain the basic concepts of streaming transformations using windows and KSQL before ingesting the transformed stream in a dashboard application. And lastly we will explore the possibilities of adding microservices as subscribers.
