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!

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.
