Tag: Database & Technology

During Quest Forum Digital Event: Emerging Technology Day, Carlos Chang, Oracle Product Marketing, presented how Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, Oracle Analytics Cloud, and Oracle Digital Assistant offer seamless conversational access to make ad-hoc queries like never before. Data is the fuel for AI – the 21st century equivalent to what electricity did for the 20th century. AI will change everything, and companies that aggregate data from multiple sources, enriched with AI, will have a distinct advantage.

Presented at Quest Experience Week (QXW) – Database & Technology Day

The need for immediate applications to manage information has never been greater. Within the past year, countless organizations around the world had unanticipated requirements thrust upon them. Those organizations skilled in Low Code development platforms delivered solutions far faster than their traditional coding counterparts. Learn what their advantage was. This session will be a live demonstration of Oracle Application Express (APEX), the low code development platform from Oracle. In a matter of minutes, we will go from concept to data model to prototype to refined application. We’ll also convert a spreadsheet to a multi-user Web application. Two applications in under 45 minutes. Fasten your seat belt!

Solving today’s business problems increasingly relies on machine learning techniques to leverage the volumes of data enterprises both amass and have access to. Oracle Machine Learning empowers data scientists, data analysts, DBAs, application developers, and executives to realize machine learning-based solutions faster and more easily. Automation of the model building process, referred to as AutoML, along with the ability to scale to enterprise data volumes while maintaining data security in Oracle Database, all come together to meet enterprise needs. In this session, learn about the in-database machine learning features and services, including those related to Oracle Autonomous Database. This session will include demonstrations and previews of Oracle Machine Learning functionality.

You think you have seen it all… and then you see something new. I have studied literally hundreds of AWR reports and thought through thousands of performance scenarios. While I know how to use an AWR or Statspack report to analyze Oracle performance, I have also learned how to totally mess-up the analysis. There are some obvious ways to totally invalidate your analysis. But there are also some subtle mess-ups that fool you into thinking your time-based analysis is rock solid…yet it’s worthless and probably misleading. Join me for a light-hearted session as we explore what NOT to do.

One of the most critical aspects of building effective systems is the successful management of unstructured/semi-structured information. The database is no longer only a place to store dollars and cents for the purposes of accounting. Efficient manipulation of JSON has become one of the most critical elements of contemporary database infrastructure. Even though you can store JSON documents in VARCHAR2 columns, in reality, you will quickly outgrow VARCHAR2 size limitations and will have to switch to LOBs for storage. However, few people in the development community really understand the underlying mechanics of Oracle LOB datatypes and consider it yet another DBA issue. This presentation attempts to fill that knowledge gap.

This presentation will look at which 19c new features that should be investigated for use. This presentation will also have a few 21c 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 examples but only explain. We will also look at the autonomous database and Oracle’s focus on the future of security.

The interesting thing about a graph is that we can use it with almost every application. We can view most data sets as a graph, and that gives you the ability to see your data through the connections and relationships between data entities. Once you represent your data as a graph, you can apply graph algorithms to get new insights into your data. In this session, I will discuss how you can create a graph from relational tables in Oracle Autonomous Database, apply graph algorithms to this graph, and use the results in your applications. My goal is to demystify graph analytics and help you get started using graphs in your analytics applications.
