Lightning Talk: Response File Revisited - Dan Morgan, Meta 7
 Session Abstract:

Our industry is moving to Software Defined Everything as the logical extension of DevOps and Infrastructure as Code.
Oracle DBAs have had these capabilities available to them for almost 30 years and yet have forgotten their roots and become inefficient and error prone.
This session will focus on how DBAs can dramatically reduce inefficiencies, reduce database-related operating costs, and eliminate errors using response files.

Oracle 12c R2 Database In-Memory: Adventures with Swingbench TPC-DS - Jim Czuprynski, Vion

Session Abstract:

Originally introduced in Release, Database In-Memory (DBIM) offers the ability for analytic queries to sift through billions of rows at incredible speed because data is now retained in columnar format in the In-Memory Column Store (IMCS)
Oracle Database 12cR2 dramatically expands the capabilities of DBIM, making it even simpler to implement, monitor, and manage while extending its reach to more complex execution plans, expanding its utility to Active Data Guard (ADG) instances, and enabling capture of frequently-evaluated expressions in the Expression Statistics Store (ESS)

Session Outline:
Through presentations and examples using Swingbench’s latest TPC-DS query generation features, this session will illustrate how Oracle 12.2 Database In-Memory:Dramatically speeds execution of analytic queries through In-Memory Column Store (IMCS)

  • Improves the management and monitoring of the IMCS
  • Improves complex query execution through improvements like Expressions Statistics Store, In-Memory Filtering, and Parallel Execution

Channeling Oracle Open World 2017 - Dan Morgan, Meta7

Session Abstract:
Two things are always true about OpenWorld ... first that most of us cannot attend and second that it is often not easy to understand how OpenWorld announcements relate to the real world existence of Oracle DBAs.

This session will feature the ACE Director Alumni Dan Morgan channeling the ghosts of Larry Ellison, Mark Hurd, Safra Catz, and Thomas Kurian to put the major OpenWorld announcements into context and answer as many as possible of the questions that OpenWorld raised.
