Join us for two full days where you will hear about the latest Business Intelligence trends.
- 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.: What’s new in Oracle EPM and BI Infrastructure – Eric Helmer, ADI Strategies
Hyperion EPM and BI Fusion edition is a dramatic change under the covers. Corporations must consider more global approaches to infrastructure to maintain availability and performance while reducing footprint and cost. Technologies such as Exalytics, Oracle virtualization, cloud computing, software as a service, etc and open source operating systems (Linux) are more commonplace. Join Oracle Are Director Eric Helmer as he covers what’s new, what’s supported, and what options you have when implementing your EPM/BI project.
- 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.: Italian Ministry of Labor & Social Policy — A Journey to Digital Government – Nicola Sandoli, ICONSULTING
The Italian Ministry of Labor and Social Policy (MLPS) is a branch of the Italian government responsible for all labormatters, including employment policies, promotions, worker protection, and social security. In its evolution towards a digital government, MLPS is streamlining and simplifying its administrative processes. MLPS has embarked on a data-driven journey to redefine business models and interactions with citizens – and optimize and transform government services. MLPS is focusing on four areas: – Information delivery: transitioning its data warehouse platform from reporting to centralizing and certifying data – Business Intelligence: monitoring activities, web publishing, and analyzing socio–political impact – Web analytics and semantic intelligence: interacting more efficiently with citizens – Job-hunting online guidance services: real time answers to young people looking for jobs MLPS is using a wide range of Oracle technologies to manage large amounts of diverse data, and apply advanced analytics, including – Oracle Exalytics for daily updates of 5TB of data – Oracle Spatial and Graph and MapViewer 11g for location intelligence capabilities – Oracle Business Intelligence for desktop and mobile reporting – Oracle Endeca Information Discovery for web analytics, data discovery, and data analysis using social and semantic intelligence – Oracle Real-Time Decisions – Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture Suite: central point for accessing and managing information made available through the Ministry web portal Cliclavoro Learn more about MLPS and its innovative platform that is delivering better information and services to their constituents.
- 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: Exadata: Elastic Configurations and IaaS – Private Cloud – Amit Kanda, Oracle
Customers are faced with challenges in their business, which include taking real time data driven decisions and reducing costs. Exadata’s extreme performance combined with Database In-Memory answer the real time data driven decisions. Elastic configurations and an updated subscription model (IaaS – Private Cloud) for Exadata hardware and software accompanied the launch of Exadata X5–2. This presentation will describe these updates and how customers can start small with Exadata and grow Exadata with their business – making it easier to reach business objectives.
- 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.: – Shyam Varan Nath, GE
The Internet of Things or IoT is poised to have a tThe State of Internet of Things (IoT) remendous amount of impact around us. This session will look at the industry landscape of IoT. The different flavors of IoT will be discussed with use cases from the consumer, commercial and industrial sectors. Learn about the edge and cloud computing platforms to power the IoT solutions. Finally, walk-thru of use-cases that show how machine/sensor data is being monetized through analytics. Such use cases will span Aviation and other industries.
- 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.: Big Data Analytics with Oracle Advanced Analytics 12c and Big Data SQL – Charlie Berger, Oracle
Oracle Advanced Analytics 12c, delivers parallelized in-database implementations of data mining algorithms andintegration with R. Data analysts use Oracle Data Miner GUI and R to build and evaluate predictive models and leverage R packages and graphs. Application developers deploy OAA models using SQL data mining functions and R. Oracle extends the Database to an analytical platform that mines more data and more data types, eliminates data movement and preserves security to automatically detect patterns and anticipate customer behavior and deliver actionable insights. Oracle Big Data SQL adds new big data sources and ORAAH provides algorithms that run on Hadoop. Come learn what’s new, best practices, and hear customer examples.
- 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.: Graph Data Management and Analytics for Big Data – Bill Beauregard, Oracle & Zhe Wu, Oracle
The newest Oracle big data product, Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph, offers a set of spatial analytic services, and a graph database with rich graph analytics that support big data workloads on Apache Hadoop and NoSQL technologies. Oracle is applying over a decade of expertise with spatial and graph analytic technologies to big data architectures. Graphs are an important data model for big data systems. Property graphs can be used for discovery, for instance, to discover underlying communities and influencers within a social graph, relationships and connections in cyber security networks, and to generate recommendations based on interests, profiles, and past behaviors. Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph provides optimized storage, search and querying in Oracle NoSQL Database and Apache HBase for distributed property graphs. It offers 35 built-in, in-memory, parallel property graph analytic functions. We will discuss use cases, features, architecture, and show a demo. Learn how developers and data scientists can manage their most challenging graph data processing in a single enterprise-class Big Data platform.
- 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: Why Oracle Database In-Memory? Use Cases and Overview – Andy Rivenes, Oracle
Oracle recently announced the availability of the Oracle Database In-Memory option, a memory-optimized database technology that transparently adds real-time analytics to applications. Because the In-Memory option is 100% compatible with existing Oracle Database applications, it’s easy to integrate it into your environment and to begin reaping the benefits. But how do you get started with it? What do you need to know to take full advantage of this new functionality? This session will give an overview of what Oracle Database In-Memory is and then discuss some use cases to highlight how it can be used.
