After the events of 2020 – a once-in-a-century pandemic, an unprecedented economic downturn, social upheaval, and several hotly-contested political races - it’s easy to become discontented with your IT career path, and maybe even consider a different line of work. But the truth is that the future of IT is so incredibly bright and its horizons so tremendously broadened that the exact opposite is true: You’d better get your sunglasses ready, and you might even want to buy a few more pairs.

Oracle Machine Learning’s new AutoML UI makes ML easier than ever before.  OML’s AutoML automates many of the time-intensive and repetitive aspects of a data scientist’s job including algorithm selection, feature selection, and hyperparameter tuning.  AutoML UI enables “citizen data scientists” to leverage AutoML in ADW with a simple, intuitive, easy to use UI.   Using AutoML UI, data scientists and citizen data scientists can focus on the important phases of ML: Defining the problem, assembling the “right data”, disseminating the model’s insights and predictions, and deploying the model enterprise-wide.  Come see the new AutoML UI and learn how easy it is to get started.

A task can be done in a very short way and in a very long way. Which one will you choose? Knowledge is Power! This session gives lots of interesting knowledge about an allegedly boring topic - Constraints. And this knowledge will give you the power to optimize and make better decisions.

The behavior of adding columns and constraints to big tables in Oracle may vary significantly, in two aspects - duration and availability - based on the way we perform these operations. In addition, different constraints may have different impact, based on their syntax, types, states, locking, etc.

Attend this session to understand what happens exactly under the hood when we issue a simple ALTER TABLE statement, and how to utilize this knowledge for achieving better performance or higher availability.

What do you need to build a fully automated Oracle DBaaS stack? Hardware, Software and a heterogenous team with a passion for automation. I am proud to be part of the team which has ramped up in the last months a DBaaS for a large Swiss customer with a huge bandwidth of technology. From PCA to ZDLRA, from VMWare vRA to Ansible Tower, from Jira Tasks to Scaled Agile Framework, each team member brought in his expertise to bring the service to the market. I will show you what you need to build such a service from scratch. What we have learned when setting up DevOps tools like Ansible and git. And what I can tell you, the passionate team is the key to success. I am not talking only about tech stuff, we want to see what is required in the back, and how long the way is from the first sprint planning to customer readiness.

Many developers/DBA’s are challenged by the limitations of the standard AWR tools.  Develop insight and command skill in the right application of the AWR toolset – or risk being drowned in the sea of performance metrics.  To handle the many varied cases where it is necessary to go beyond the standard toolset, the Oracle DB tuner must be able to creatively query the historic performance metrics and quickly discern root causes and provide solutions. 

Get a jump start by experiencing the presenter's process and tools, along with some case studies of real-life performance nightmares that were converted into success stories.  Learn where to look in the AWR data to solve the difficult performance problems.  See the solutions and learn how to apply a results-producing strategy for digging deep in the AWR repository to power past your own specific performance issues.  Additionally, the author will share his various scripts and SQL queries used to make the most effective use of AWR.

With the increase in demand for application to be online 24x7x365, several tasks like upgrades and migrations are becoming a challenge. While keeping in mind that clients want a fool proof migration /upgrade we are also having to ensure we ask for no downtime. This is challenging enough to start with without adding the size of the database in question to be several terabytes. What are some methods that can guarantee a no downtime migration of 100T database? We will explore some options to successfully migrate large databases with zero downtime. Detailing the methods and illustration of the requirements to help audience understand options available to reproduce the migrations in their client space.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) or 2-factor authentication (2FA) for database connections is frequently inquired about, but rarely implemented.  Yet is surprisingly easy to implement in the Oracle Database.

This session covers how to implement MFA/2FA for your Oracle Databases via common MFA platforms including Cisco Duo.  Including specifics of how to get started and test in your own DBA lab environment.

This presentation will focus on what specific Algorithms that are inside Oracle can be applied to Business Problems. 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. Some business issues are seasonal, some relate to customers with certain attributes, some relate to customers we don't know exist, but all can be solved by using the correct algorithm to quickly prescribe a better corporate future.
