Achieving Live Data in the Oracle Cloud
If you’re like most people shifting to a cloud strategy, your learning curve is steep, and even the basics such as migrating data to the cloud are worrisome. Whether megabytes or petabytes, you need your cloud migration to be an efficient process - continuous, requiring no downtime, and seamless without data loss. The long delays inherent with traditional migration methods, the need for coordinated ingestion across multiple environments and various geolocations, stale, vulnerable, or inconsistent data often leave projects stuck in the starting gate. Even worse, when your business’s data is driving competitive advantage, unless you can be sure of the availability of your data, you and your business are at serious risk. Now it is possible to have guaranteed consistent data everywhere, even when data is growing and changing. This presentation will explain ‘LIVE DATA’. And present architecture and solutions that show how a ‘LIVE DATA strategy’ allows you to surmount common and sometimes scary cloud use-cases across a wide variety of industry scenarios.

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.\

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.

The Journey to the Clouds!
One of the biggest ongoing discussion points, and in fact a key decision factor to be bedded down prior to implementing a BI, Analytics application is whether it should be implemented as an on premises system, or as a cloud solution. We have come fairly quickly from a place where we had hardware on raised pallets in dark corners of basement floors. By contrast, we are now in the place where as far as possible, the business attempts to give the individual user access to self-served information on their personal device, at any time. The analogy I often use for this is one where my Grandfather one day clung to one end of a firmly planted Tulip and said to me; “ Look how strong I am, I have the world on the other end of this!” The internet used to be the domain of the few, and now it is almost impossible for an individual to function without it. In this discussion I will cover some fairly weighty topics, but in plain ‘ol English! This discussion is for Senior Executives in Finance or IT.

Bringing your Data Warehouse to the the Lake
As early as 2001 Enterprise Data Warehousing (EDW) design patterns like "Corporate Information Factory" (CIF) began to emerge. Theses patterns established EDW as the central focus of reporting. Current BI/DW 1.0 projects still follow these patterns today. Problems in the BI/DW 1.0 methodology have appeared. Increases in data volume, variety and velocity have all created considerable challenges for this legacy architecture. In this presentation we will review the legacy of BI/DW 1.0 and dive into the future BI/DW 2.0 and 3.0 architectures. Taking a close look and advanced staging areas, operational data stores and how those architectures can be used for cloud facilitation in BI/DW 2.0. Additionally, this presentation will drive into the BI/DW 3.0 data tipping point and where various Oracle products fit in these new emerging modern data architectures.

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.

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.

Level Up -- The technologies you need to learn to stay relevant in analytics
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.

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.
