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.

Based on Oracle Generation 2 Cloud Architecture,  Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) provides a fully automated data warehouse specific features to deliver outstanding query performance. ADW also comes with a library of Oracle machine learning algorithms and a new set of tools such as SQL notebooks for predictive analytics and machine learning. This allows Data scientists to run Machine Learning projects in Oracle Database without moving data and also allows Database developers to pick up Machine learning with database tables, SQL, and PL/SQL. l This session will examine Oracle Machine Learning as part of ADW collaborative environment. We will discuss the process to develop machine learning applications in the ADW Oracle Machine Learning environment:  analyze and prepare data set;  build and evaluate and apply machine learning model. We also will discuss other Oracle Machine Learning family products and what new features are coming up in Oracle 20c.

This presentation will look at which 19c new features that should be investigated for use.  This presentation will also have a few 20c new features such as AutoML.  This presentation will also look at which 18c new features that should be in use (such as Snapshot Carousel, PDB Switchover, In-Memory External Tables, Merge Partition Online, Advances in the Approximate Query, Polymorphic Tables, Standby Nologging, and Password-less Schema Creation - & others).  Most of the features that will be covered will be related to the DBA, but there will also be a few outside that realm that focus on the developer.  There will be simple examples, where possible, to show the basic functionality of the new features.  Some features are too new to show example, but only explain.  We will also look at the autonomous database and Oracle's focus on the future of security.
