Oracle OpenWorld started yesterday and San Francisco is just buzzing with Oracle folks.
If you are attending the conference don't miss the opportunity to chat with the Oracle Database In-Memory team at one of our sessions or at the Oracle demogrounds.
Today kicks off with one of the best general sessions of the conference, General Session: Next-Generation Data Management Architecture Session GEN6765 at 11am in Marriott Marquis—Salon 7/8/9 (Yerba Buena Ballroom) in which Andy Mendelsohn, EVP of Database development, will share how Oracle Database 12c and its next-generation architecture are helping customers on their journey to the cloud.
Then in the afternoon the first 2 of the 8 customers speaking about their experiences with Oracle Database In-Memory will have their sessions. First up is Facebook’s Use of Oracle Database In-Memory from Inception to Rollout
Session CON1685 at 2:45pm in Moscone South - room 301. Sudhi Vijayakumar will describe how Facebook evaluated Oracle Database In-Memory and then rolled it out in production to reap the benefits of faster response times for analytical queries.
Then at 4:00pm Five Ways Swiss Mobiliar Improved Business Value with Database In-Memory Session CON2715 in Moscone South - room 310. In this session folks from Swiss Mobiliar explain how they extended their traditional business intelligence (BI) systems to a more real-time solution using Oracle Database In-Memory. They will also compare this new solution to their original IBM DB2 solution.
Today is also your first chance to catch our hands-on-lab, Oracle Database In-Memory Bootcamp (Session HOL10483) in the Golden Gate room (25th Floor) at the Hotel Nikko. In this hands-on lab we'll provide a step-by-step guide on how to get started with Oracle Database In-Memory, how to identify which of the optimizations are being used, and how your SQL statements benefit from them. You will also get to experience firsthand just how easy it is to start taking advantage of this technology and the incredible performance improvements it has to offer.
Remember it's about a 15 minute walk from Moscone to the Hotel Nikko, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there.
Members of the In-Memory team will also be available at booth SLD 28 from 10:00am to 6pm at the Oracle Database demogrounds in Moscone South, to answer any questions you might have. Remember the In-Memory demo booth is the best place to snag a limited edition In-Memory bumper sticker!
