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.

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.

HOL: Property Graph 101 in Oracle Database for the Completely Clueless
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Oracle Database 12c now includes property graphs - a powerful feature that goes beyond relational, to analyze relationships in big data, such as finding the most influential people in a social network, discovering patterns of fraud within financial transaction data, or recommending products based on what similar customers are buying.
Don’t have the slightest clue on how to get started with and use property graphs? Good news! If you can form a complete sentence (coffee allowed) then you can do this! This hands on lab by Vlamis will show you exactly how to create, load and use property graphs on the Oracle Database. We will cover how to create a property graph using Java or PLSQL, how to load data into a property graph from existing database tables, how to create an in-memory instance of a property graph, how to run algorithms such as page rank against a property graph, how to use PGQL (a sql like language for property graphs) to query a graph and ways to visualize graph data.

In order to complete the hands on lab you will need to bring your own laptop with VNC Viewer installed (https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/viewer/) so you can access the virtual machines we have set up for the lab.

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.

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)

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.
