Oracle OpenWorld 2015 Wrap up!

I can't believe another Oracle OpenWorld has been and gone.

Thanks to all those that attended the In-Memory sessions and stopped by the In-Memory demopod during this years Oracle OpenWorld. It was an amazing conference this year with lots of great technical sessions and interesting discussion at the demo grounds.

I've been inundated with requests to share the presentation we gave on In-Memory at the conference, so I thought it would be a good idea to share the links to the presentations here.

A number of Oracle Database In-Memory customers present on their experiences of using In-Memory. You can find details from their sessions below;

We also gave folks the opportunity to try out Oracle Database In-Memory for themselves in our hands-on lab, Oracle Database In-Memory Option Boot Camp: Everything You Need to Know, so I thought I would share the lab handbook in case anyone want to try some of the labs at home.

Finally there was a lot of talk about how Oracle Database In-Memory takes advantage of Software in Silicon ,so I thought it would be good to share this link to a short video of Juan Loaiza describing exactly what we mean by Software in Silicon.

We hope you enjoyed the conference as much as we did and we look forward to see you all again next year at OOW 2016 September 18–22, 2016 in San Francisco.

Day 5 of Oracle OpenWorld 2015 October 29th

It's the last day of Oracle OpenWorld and we have saved the very best for last. So hopefully you are still awake and functioning after the party!

Today, we have a fantastic line up of In-Memory sessions, so grab your coffee and start your last day at our hands-on-lab Oracle Database In-Memory Bootcamp (Session HOL10483) at the slightly later time of 9:30am in the Golden Gate room (25th Floor) at the Hotel Nikko.

If you have already attended our hands on lab, check out our last Database In-Memory technical session Introducing Analytic Views—Bringing Star Queries into the Twenty-First Century (Session CON8742) at 9:30am in Moscone South - room 309. During this session Bud Endress will introduce Analytic Views and describe how they easily transform tables into the next-generation data source for BI applications and Excel Pivot Tables.

Before you head for the airport, don't forget to stop by the Engineered System Showcase to check out the Database In-Memory demo and pick up both an In-Memory bumper sticker and a SQL in Silicon sticker.

We hope you have a safe trip home and we will see you all again next year, when we will have even more great session on Oracle Database In-Memory!

Day 4 of Oracle OpenWorld 2015 October 28th

Thanks to all those who stopped by the demogrounds to chat with the In-Memory developers over the last two days. Remember, today is the last day of the demogrounds, so if you haven't had a chance to stop by yet, do so today. The In-Memory developers will be there from 10:00am until 4pm. This may be your last chance to snag an In-Memory bumper sticker, so don't miss out!

But before you head to the demogrounds why not start your day at our hands-on-lab Oracle Database In-Memory Bootcamp (Session HOL10483) in the Golden Gate room (25th Floor) at the Hotel Nikko. The fun begins bright and early at 8:45 am!

There are also some great technical sessions on today, including your first opportunity to ask questions of production Oracle Database In-Memory customers and see if the technology lives up to the hype. I will be hosting our first Oracle Database In-Memory Customer Panel (Session CON8657) at 1:45pm in Moscone South - room 103. The session will begin with each customer briefly sharing how they are using Oracle Database In-Memory before we dive into an open discussion. I strongly encouraged you to actively participate in this session and pose any questions you may have about Database In-Memory and other alternative solutions considered by the panelists.

Then in the afternoon we have our last customer session on Database In-Memory given by General Mills, How Exadata & Database In-Memory Power Precision Marketing at General Mills (Session CON4292) at 3:00pm in Moscone South - room 254. Mark and Josh from General Mills explain how Oracle Exadata with Oracle Database In-Memory gave them a scalable and reliable platform from which to build a consumer-first data warehouse.

Finally before you rush off to put on your dancing shoes for the appreciation event, we have another great technical session, Oracle Database In-Memory: Under the Hood (Session CON8652) at 4:15pm in Moscone South - room 103 where Tirthankar Lahiri, the VP of Database In-Memory development, will provide an insiders view of the technology underlying Oracle Database In-Memory and give you a sneak peek at what you can expect from Oracle Database In-Memory in our next generation!

Day 3 of Oracle OpenWorld 2015 October 27th

Hopefully you enjoyed yesterday, the first full day of technical sessions at Oracle OpenWorld, and are ready for more today!

First thing this morning at 8:45 am is your second opportunity to attend our hands-on-lab, Oracle Database In-Memory Bootcamp (Session HOL10483) in the Golden Gate room (25th Floor) at the Hotel Nikko. I know it's early but trust me it will be a great way to start your day as it will leave you inspired and energized!

Today we will also give our first two technical sessions. First up is  Best Practices for Getting Started with Oracle Database In-Memory (Session CON6775) at 11:00am, in Moscone South - room 104.

In this session, I'll provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to get started with Oracle Database In-Memory, including advice on when and where you should take advantage of Oracle Database In-Memory. I'll also outlines strategies to help ensure that you get the promised performance boost regardless of your database environment. If you do come to this session, be sure to keep an eye out for this little fellow, as he will be on top of all of the slides with the top tips!

Later in the day we have our 3rd customer session when Dan Huls from AT&T WiFi presents, Oracle Database In-Memory: A Practical Solution (Session CON3087) at 4pm in Moscone South - room 307. Dan will share with you how they implemented Oracle Database In-Memory on a large customer-facing data warehousing system in under two months with little or no changes to their application. He will also provide details on why they chose Oracle Database In-Memory versus a more expensive SAP HANA solution.

Finally Juan Loaiza, EVP of Database Development, will present Oracle Database In-Memory—What’s New and What’s Coming (Session CON8659) at 5:15pm in Moscone South— room 103. In this session Juan will explain in detail what motivated Oracle to develop this new technology and provides a clear understanding of how this unique “dual format” architecture works.

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!
