A Practical Business Approach to Implementing Oracle Analytics Cloud
Implementing and Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) ecosystem can be a challenge. When successfully implemented they can deliver significant business value. However, may BI implementations fail because they are long, complex and ultimately do not meet the business's needs. We discuss an approach for reducing technical complexity and ensuring business needs drive the implementation of the solution. Using the Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) offers the organizations a robust platform for implementation a business intelligence ecosystem and accelerates the solution cycle.

This presentation looks to provide relevant information to anyone looking to implement a Cloud based Oracle BI ecosystem to support organizational business processes. Initially we will conduct a cost benefit comparison of on premise verses cloud based solutions. Also, this presentation will provide a overview of the Oracle Analytics Cloud features and functionality. Then we will review a full life cycle methodology.

Data Integration in the Cloud Era
With the drastic rise in cloud offerings from Oracle, developers and users are scrambling to integrate data from on-premise and cloud solutions. This can range from small file transfers containing financial data to solutions for tools like Essbase Cloud Services, to large data sets containing millions of records sourced from a data warehouse loaded into Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC). We also find ourselves integrating across cloud applications (for example, sourcing data from financial systems for reporting and analytics in other cloud tools). This presentation focuses on the gears that move the data, and presents an array of options and best practices to manage data integration and data movement. Come learn about a variety of methodologies available, as well as a cross-product overview. Finally, hear about real world examples, and how data integration actually works with various Oracle cloud products.

Feedback from the business. Am I on the right path to customer success?
Measure Processes, Manage Feedback, Link to Process, Drill to detail, From Insight to Action…
You've heard of all this before, but it is hardly ever completely implemented. The steps from Insight to Action are hard to capture with Action Links as we try to do with Business Intelligence. But when you use the capabilities of platforms such as BICS and PCS the implementation and adjustments can be very easily accomplished. You can even empower your business users to adjust the solution themselves. Creating BPM / BAM / BI solutions can now be done with webbased tools only that appear like low-code solutions. Can you use this to empower the business to stay connected and stay on track with your ever changing environment?
We will set out a few steps to gather the right input and to stay flexible with your integrated Business solution. The demo includes integrations between BICS and PCS that are the cornerstones for digitally empowered business by using self service as the starting point.

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.

A Cognitive Study on Data Visualization
With data volumes exploding and a greater variety of data available,business users want to explore more data and discover new insights that they can apply readily to improve business strategies, operations and customer engagement.With easier data exploration,users are seeking to increase the depth and frequency of their data analysis.This is a significant change because users who engage in analytics processes interact with data differently from what has been the norm with traditional BI.Rather than just consume data,they ask questions,try different views and approaches,build predictive models, and more.Supporting users’ forays into analytics is critical because it’s becoming clear in nearly every industry that organizations need to be more analytical to compete effectively.Visual analytics can help users become more productive with data by using software to integrate data analysis capabilities with modern,graphical ways of expressing information.Such technologies give users more power. This study that examines experiences with BI, visual analytics, and visual data discovery to uncover how organizations can move forward to make users more productive with data and use technologies to improve collaboration. This study explores where users are succeeding with BI and analytics and where visual analytics can improve their decisions. Currently, users are not fully satisfied with their ability to use visual analytics functionality. Training and education are needed to help them understand how to use visualization effectively and exploit new methods of data analysis.

Leveraging Analytics in Higher Education
Big data is still a trending topic in higher education and other industries. While understanding the importance of big data is critical, most universities are not leveraging the power of small data. Many data warehouse implementations in higher education fail as they only provide reports that do not aid in improving daily business functions. This session will highlight various technologies and strategies in incorporating data and analytics into the institutional culture. Business intelligence is not just getting sophisticated reports but being integrated into the applications that students, faculty, advisors, and staff use daily. Data and analytics should be used to drive processes and provide alerts when interventions are needed. This session will provide an overview of how Valdosta State University have integrated data into the academic and administrative functions of the university, leading to improved insight and value.

Pilot your Oracle Business Intelligence 12c Cloud Migration on Virtual Box
You know you need to get started on that Oracle Business Intelligence upgrade from 11g to 12c so you do a “lift and shift” to the cloud, but IT resources are tight, plus you’re not really sure how everything is going to fit together and you are going to have to wait for the Database and Server Administrators to get the environments set up. No problem, just use your laptop or PC to pilot the entire migration using Virtual Box and Sample Applications. In no time you will be up and running, using the migration and baseline validation tools, connecting to your real data, verifying dashboards and running reports in 12c. Once that is taken care of you can proceed to the cloud. 
This is a case study of how Aleris International piloted its migration from OBIEE 11.1.1.7 to 12.2.1.1 using a laptop, Virtual Box and Sample applications for OBIEE.

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.
