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.

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.

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.

Oracle Machine Leaning & Adaptive Intelligent Applications for Manufacturing
In this session learn about Oracle's soon to be released prepackaged "SaaS on PaaS" cloud applications called "Adaptive Intelligent Applications for Manufacturing". This product is built directly on top of several Oracle’s PaaS components to collect, store, and analyze massive amounts of Operational Technology (OT) data coming from shopfloor systems such as MES, quality systems, LIMS, Equipment, Test stations and contextualizes this data with Information Technology (IT) data residing in HCM/CRM/SCM/ERP applications in a single consolidated operational data store and analyzed by applying advanced analytics, data mining/data science, and AI techniques to discover key patterns and correlations from historical data related to manufacturing efficiencies and also provide actionable predictive analytics to improve yield, reduce defects, reduce scrap, minimize cycle times, manufacturing costs, and equipment downtime.
