Path to Data Architect: Hadoop, Spark, Flink, and Beam Explained to Oracle DBAs
Big Data is growing exponentially, requiring massive-scale infrastructure however, business analytics has shifted from reactive to proactive analysis; this is the era of streaming data (a.k.a. Fast Data). Apache Hadoop is very good for analyzing data at rest but cannot handle streaming data.
Big Data analytics needs new Big data frameworks. Apache Spark brings in-memory processing and RDD data abstraction which allow real-time processing of streaming data however its micro batch architecture incurs high latency. Apache Flink brings low latency and could address Spark limitations however it is not as mature and largely adopted as Spark.
Apache Beam promotes its portable Beam model across Big data frameworks (Spark, Flink, Dataflow).
Tis session presents and overview of the major Big Data frameworks and suggests that DBA should embrace these frameworks and expand their skills as a necessary path to becoming Data Architects.

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.

Move Data between Apache Hadoop and Oracle Database for Customer 360 Analytics
Customer 360 degree views require data from a variety of streaming sources to be integrated with data stored in Big Data systems and databases. Machine learning and analytics applications need access to mobile device feeds, online community logs, social media feeds, and much more, along with business critical data stored in the database. Tools for data movement between streaming data sources, Big Data platforms and Oracle Databases are essential. In this session, learn about tools that move data between these systems, using technology such as Hive storage handlers for Kafka, direct path load, SQL, and custom Hive SerDes. We will step through using these tools to work with Streaming data (Kafka), Big Data, and Database services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

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.

Real Time Big Data Analytic Platform with Oracle GoldenGate for Big Data
Lending Club’s Big Data Analytics platform is going through a major transformation to adopt the Lambda Architecture with Real-Time reporting and execution of AI/ML models on Real-Time data. Lending Club's OLTP platform is transitioning to a Microservice-based architecture. At the heart of both solutions is GoldenGate for BigData. We are using a single server configured to run the replicats serving JSON payloads and Avro formats using same set of trail files. We implemented a custom java replicat to stream JSON messages to AWS Kinesis. We are using HDFS handler to stream data in Avro format to HDFS and AWS S3 to be consumed by AWS EMR, Hive on Tez/Presto/Spark. The solutions have been architected in a secure, reliable, and resilient manner.

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.

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.

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.
