The Internet of Things or IoT is poised to have a tremendous amount of impact around us. This session will look at  the industry landscape of IoT. The different flavors of IoT will be discussed with use cases from the consumer,  commercial and industrial sectors. Learn about the edge and cloud computing platforms to power the IoT solutions.  Finally, walk-thru of use-cases that show how machine/sensor data is being monetized through analytics. Such use  cases will span Aviation and other industries.


Day Two:

  • 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.: Big Data Analytics with Oracle Advanced Analytics 12c and Big Data SQL - Charlie Berger, Oracle

Oracle Advanced Analytics 12c, delivers parallelized in-database implementations of data mining algorithms andintegration with R. Data analysts use Oracle Data Miner GUI and R to build and evaluate predictive models and leverage R packages and graphs. Application developers deploy OAA models using SQL data mining functions and R. Oracle extends the Database to an analytical platform that mines more data and more data types, eliminates data movement and preserves security to automatically detect patterns and anticipate customer behavior and deliver actionable insights. Oracle Big Data SQL adds new big data sources and ORAAH provides algorithms that run on Hadoop. Come learn what’s new, best practices, and hear customer examples.

  • 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: Graph Data Management and Analytics for Big DataBill Beauregard, Oracle & Zhe Wu, Oracle

The newest Oracle big data product, Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph, offers a set of spatial analytic services, and a graph database with rich graph analytics that support big data workloads on Apache Hadoop and NoSQL technologies. Oracle is applying over a decade of expertise with spatial and graph analytic technologies to big data architectures. Graphs are an important data model for big data systems. Property graphs can be used for discovery, for instance, to discover underlying communities and influencers within a social graph, relationships and connections in cyber security networks, and to generate recommendations based on interests, profiles, and past behaviors. Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph provides optimized storage, search and querying in Oracle NoSQL Database and Apache HBase for distributed property graphs. It offers 35 built-in, in-memory, parallel property graph analytic functions. We will discuss use cases, features, architecture, and show a demo. Learn how developers and data scientists can manage their most challenging graph data processing in a single enterprise-class Big Data platform.

  • 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.Why Oracle Database In-Memory?  Use Cases and Overview - Andy Rivenes, Oracle

Oracle recently announced the availability of the Oracle Database In-Memory option, a memory-optimized database technology that transparently adds real-time analytics to applications. Because the In-Memory option is 100% compatible with existing Oracle Database applications, it’s easy to integrate it into your environment and to begin reaping the benefits. But how do you get started with it? What do you need to know to take full advantage of this new functionality? This session will give an overview of what Oracle Database In-Memory is and then discuss some use cases to highlight how it can be used.
