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.

Cloud2Cloud - IoT & EPM: Connecting GE Predix to Oracle EPBCS
In this presentation, Gary Crisci, Principal Data & Information Architect/Oracle Ace and Shyam Nath, Director-IoT, will walk you through GE’s Predix platform; a cloud based solution that can capture industrial data for various Edge devices. We will discuss scenarios for utilizing this valuable information, including how you get it in the hands of the people who need it, and into a tool that allows them to use the information to make better decisions.

We will illustrate how we capture industrial data from sensors using GE’s Predix cloud platform to determine leading indicators of when large maintenance events are likely to be due and what will be the nature of the maintenance required. We will then demonstrate how to transfer the data into Oracle PBCS for Planning and Budgeting purposes.

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.
