The majority of modern IT solutions consist of multiple systems communicating using APIs. The “common language” is usually JSON. Unfortunately, the Oracle RDBMS did not have native JSON support until version 12c. Previously, developers had to use either third-party tools (the most popular was PL/JSON) or write their own code to support JSON processing. When it comes to database upgrades, the question arises: Should we utilize new features or not? This question is especially relevant when you need to edit 10,000+ lines of code and core system functionality.  The authors decided to accept a challenge and migrate from PL/JSON to Oracle native JSON and share their story with conference attendees.

Anyone can build a chatbot but it takes experience and expertise to build a GOOD chatbot. Simply knowing the building blocks for building a chatbot and how to piece them together doesn't guarantee that what you build will be fit for purpose or add value to the business. You need to know the life lessons, tips, tricks, and pitfalls that can only be discovered through real-world implementations. In this theater session learn the top design tips for building digital assistants and chatbots, all learned from many live implementations.

AsterionDB has pioneered the ability to seamlessly store and manage both structured and unstructured data in the Oracle Database.  We couple this with the ability to express any business logic required at the data-layer. These capabilities allow us to now build an architecture that can not be hacked. To be clear, hacking your API is not the same as hacking your architecture/platform. Hacking an API can be as simple as stealing a password - that's bad. Hacking an architecture is what happens when all of your files are stolen or locked up w/ ransomware. That's worse! This session will delve into the techniques required to build an impervious architecture that is easily adept at securing structured and unstructured data.

Database Administrators usually collect summary performance, and utilization data for QoS reports. Usually, they present the information in text files with rows and rows of data. The management and users like and understand the visual representation of data better. The tabular format may not make the impact or get the attention you desire. Attend this session to see how easily you can convert those tabular formats to pictures using the free and open-source Google Charts. Google Charts is a pure JavaScript-based charting library to enhance web applications by adding interactive charting capability. This session includes many demos and provides you with templates that you can start using right away by plugging in your favorite SQL.

DevOps concepts, practices, and tools have spread widely in the past decade as teams look to improve their ability to deliver working software swiftly and reliably. These concepts and tools are important for people involved in all aspects of software development, delivery, and support to understand.

This session provides an overview of core concepts and mindsets of DevOps, typical DevOps tools and patterns of usage of those tools, and how all of this relates to your database. Key areas of focus will be the use of source code management tools such as GitHub, automated testing, Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment tools such as Concourse, CI/CD-enabling database tools such as Liquibase, and Infrastructure as Code.

Examples of how a database support team has adopted these practices and tools will be given along with lessons learned along the way including thoughts on how best to get started if you’re just beginning to explore DevOps for your database environment.
