Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud: Easy, Fast and Highly Elastic
Oracle recently expanded its Data Management Cloud portfolio with the addition of the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Service to help customers and partners with the deployment of data-mart or data warehouse environments to gain faster insights from their critical business data. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is the first of many cloud services built on the “self-driving” Oracle Autonomous Cloud Database technology. This service is integrated with applied machine learning to deliver unmatched high performance, reliability, and instant elasticity.
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud uses the same Oracle Database software and technology found in existing on-premises data warehouse deployment, and is compatible with Oracle’s in-database machine learning algorithms, analytics and BI tools, as well as popular 3rd party offerings. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is simple to deploy, enabling traditional data mart environments or new monetization use cases.\

Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud - Experiences of an Early Adopter
In the Cloud managed Data Warehouse services are still rare. Amazon Red Shift and Snowflake are examples of new contenders in the market place. At Oracle Open World Larry Ellison announced the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud service (ADWC). It shall become available at the turn of the calendar year as a fully managed DWH service, running on Exadata hardware.

sumIT took part in a preview programme in summer and autumn of 2017 and has gained insights and experience with the new service. In this presentation those experiences will be shared with the audience. Key features of the service, like its ease of provisioning, use, and interfacing other systems and clouds will be presented and also demonstrated.

Lessons learned will be told, the services sweet spot and limits be discussed. Moreover, AWDC will be compared to other managed DWH cloud services. This will illustrate the advantages AWDC gives customers, but will also help identify room for improvement in future AWDC versions.

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.

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.

Just Add Magic: Improve Query Performance and Security in Hadoop
Hadoop, through schema on read offers a tremendous advantage in analytics: flexibility to work with data before it is completely modeled and loaded, enabling analysis to start much sooner. But, as we learned from Hive in Hadoop, it does come with relatively poor performance. This session will unveil and explain technological innovations from Oracle, addressing these performance issues. We will share how we achieved parquet query performance with the flexibility of schema on read enabling the best of both worlds while fitting comfortably within the open source community. On top of that, this session addresses further research into methods of securing data. Security will be done at a much more granular level than possible today. If you are interested in the latest innovations around Hadoop, Object Stores, performance and security, you should not miss this session.

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.

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_

Cloud Data Center, Infrastructure, Analytics and integration. Mind the gap!
There is a long list of products and services, but what do I need for Analytics? Is it just the Cloud service? Can I simply connect everything? Let's get to the bottom of this. Let’s get a holistic view on the infrastructure for hybrid cloud analytics. These topics are based on an onshore/offshore industry company moving it's analytics to the cloud, while having to deal with offshore locations as well.
This session will elaborate on how Analytics Cloud, RDC, VPN, GoldenGate, Data Integrator, ETL, FastConnect, Internet Exchanges, your ISP and datacenters are related to each other. 
The case study is a datawarehouse and analytics platform in the Oracle Cloud connecting to on-premises sources. The analytics-to-the-cloud first approach is often a great start in the cloud, but at that time you need to think beyond running queries, offloading the ETL-load and moving BI users to the Cloud.
We will mind the gap and compare the upside and downside of different infrastructural approaches.

Publication of Statistical Linked Open Data in Japan with Oracle RDF graph
The National Statistics Center of Japan is responsible for managing and publishing a wide variety of national statistical data on its e-Stat portal site. The Center works with national and local agencies to make statistics widely accessible to government and the public. Inconsistent metadata definitions from the myriad of data sources made it difficult to align data semantics to support effective search and discovery.
To break through this problem, the Center developed a Linked Open Data
(LOD) platform in 2016, which publishes Japan statistics such as the population census and consumer price index.
This platform was built using the RDF graph capability in Oracle Database Spatial and Graph, and configured on Exadata and Oracle's SPARQL endpoint service.
To improve provisioning and manageability, the platform was migrated to the Oracle Public Cloud.
This move freed up limited resources to focus on developing new services, such as spatial search on sub-regional geometries using GeoSPARQL.

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?
We will set out a few steps to gather the right input and to stay flexible with your integrated Business solution. The demo includes integrations between BICS and PCS that are the cornerstones for digitally empowered business by using self service as the starting point.

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!

Setting up Oracle BI with Amazon Redshift
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.

Easy To Use Self Service Maps in Oracle Database Cloud
See a newly designed self-service spatial visualization and analysis component for Oracle Database Cloud. The tool is intended to simplify the use of Oracle Spatial and Graph features for Database Cloud Service users and developers. It is designed to benefit users with or without domain expertise in spatial data management and analytics.
The session will demonstrate end-to-end workflows such as:
  • Select database content (one or more tables or views with spatial information), visualize it on map, customize the map, share the result
  • Upload a spreadsheet with spatial data (e.g. Lat/Long points) or identifiers (e.g. city or state names) and perform the same set of steps as above
  • Perform ad-hoc spatial queries, visualize and share the results
  • Create a dashboard-like page with multiple maps to show comparisons (e.g. Sales by Year)

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.

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. 
This is a case study of how Aleris International piloted its migration from OBIEE 11.1.1.7 to 12.2.1.1 using a laptop, Virtual Box and Sample applications for OBIEE.
