Session 1:

8:30am – 10:30am Innovation, Oracle Cloud with Apps Case Study, Big Data and the Internet of Things Preparing for the Future of IT

This presentation will cover Oracle’s Acceleration, especially with the Oracle Cloud, and the Cycles of Innovation in the world.  We’ll look at a case study of an implementation of Oracle ERP Cloud Financials integrated with on premise Supply Chain Application.  We’ll then look at the current Acceleration of the Cloud, the Big Data Revolution and some of the Big Data Solutions out there including Oracle’s Big Data Solution.  We will review the role that both Google and Facebook have played in the Big Data Ecosystem and also how other NoSQL databases like Cassandra and MongoDB fit in.  We’ll then look at the Internet of Things (IOT) which will drive Big Data and the Cloud even Faster.  Lastly, we’ll briefly look at what the Future will bring with 64-bit and 128-bit (robotics/implants).

Session 2:

9:50am – 10:50am The Best Oracle Database 12c R1 & R2 New Features

This presentation will look at which 12c Release 1 and Release 2 new features should be investigated for use.  Some of the features that will be covered will be related to the DBA, but there will also those that focus on the developer.  There will be simple examples (such as a quick example using pluggable databases) to show the basic functionality of the new features:


– Invisible Columns

– Multiple indexes on the same Column

– Adaptive Execution Plans

– Runaway query Management

– Change Table Compression at import Time

– Create Views as Tables

– Online Move Partition

– Partial Indexes for Partitioned Table
