Quest Forum Digital Event 2020

Join Oracle development for the latest updates on high availability (HA) best practices in this well-established technical deep-dive session. Learn how to optimize all aspects of Oracle Active Data Guard 19c. See how to use session draining, transparent application continuity, Oracle RAC, and Oracle GoldenGate to mask outages and planned maintenance from users and to accelerate time to repair for single database or your fleet of databases. Hear about the latest HA best practices with Oracle Multitenant and understand how the new sharded architecture can achieve even higher levels of HA and fault isolation for OLTP applications. Find out how everything you know about Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) on-premises can be deployed in the cloud.

Robots may be the first to truly learn Machine Learning (ML) and expand into Artificial Intelligence (AI). Python is one of the keys to Machine Learning as we program the invention of Man's Mind to further replace man's most basic tasks. This session will focus on ML 101 and building the future ahead.

Quest Forum Digital Event 2020

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are a lot like preserving the Earth's environment: Almost everyone is talking about what should be done to save it, but very few people have committed to actually doing something about it.

This session demonstrates a few real-life opportunities to discover unseen patterns and relationships within sample financial and election data by leveraging the AI and ML capabilities already built into Oracle Autonomous Database.

DBAs spend time dealing with maintenance, security, and outage issues with little time for innovation. Self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing Autonomous Databases free data professionals to leverage their domain knowledge and data skills to extract more value from data. Oracle Machine Learning, part of Autonomous Database, “moves the algorithms to the data” for in-database processing of machine learning algorithms that eliminate data movement. Now, the entire machine learning process:  problem statement, data understanding and preparation, model building and evaluation, model apply and model deployment runs inside the Oracle Database.   Database developers perform many supporting tasks today, typically 80% of the work, but refer to them as ETL, data wrangling, data transformations, and productionizing scripts.   Come learn how ADW, ATP, and Oracle Machine Learning makes it easy for you to easily expand your valuable data skills and become “data scientists” in just 6 weeks!

Drop Tank manages gas station loyalty technologies and programs for many of America’s best-known fuel brands. Millions of transactions and diverse POS systems bring the complexity of both scale and scope to their cloud-based data warehouse and analytics system. You’ll hear how ADW, OAC, ODI, and Oracle CX cloud work together to provide reporting and analytic insight to marketers and program managers. This real-world case study will highlight what worked well, what didn’t, and what the future promises.


  • Share the challenges that Drop Tank faces in integrating diverse data sources into a comprehensive solution in Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud.
  • Discuss the data modeling challenges necessary for reporting complex retail transactions across thousands of individual store locations and diverse audiences for analytics.
  • Review the guiding principles and preferences that helped this implementation succeed. Discuss what it’s like to be on the cutting edge of Oracle’s technologies.

Oracle Autonomous Database services are built around the Oracle database and come with fully automated with self-driving, self-securing, self-repairing, and offer two options optimized by workloads: Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) and Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP). In this session, you will learn the easy provisioning process of these two database cloud services, learn how to navigate the service console for service management, how to access the databases, define the database objects, load the data and run the query and transactions. For Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW),  you will how to import and export large sets of data to/from ADW database, learn how to use data visualization tool built in the Oracle cloud to run advanced analytics and machine learning applications as well as some troubleshooting experiences and tips using ADW. We will also discuss the options and process to migrate your on-premise databases to these database cloud services.

This presentation addresses and tries to provide a reasonable answer to the rather common question: "Why should we still use an Oracle Database?", which more often than not is raised by management. In the presence of more and more "alternative solutions", however, the same question is also raised by non-Oracle database administrators, who are looking to solve a particular problem. This session addresses both audiences.

As part of Quest Forum Digital Event: Innovation Week, Sandra Cheevers, Senior Director of Oracle Cloud Product Marketing, presented an overview of Oracle’s Cloud Computing strategy. Cheevers discussed Intelligent Applications, Autonomous Database, and the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as the complete solution for your organization’s needs.
