Oracle Webcasts & Online Events

    Do you say Webcast or Webinar?

    Or is it TechCast, or simply Online Event? You’ll see them all here because IOUG draws Oracle speakers, experts and presenters from all over the place (and they can call their events whatever they like). What they have in common, though, is professionalism, passion and a goal of bringing you smart and actionable information you can use right away. Whether registering for an upcoming event or looping back to check out ones you missed, you've come to the right place for all things Oracle.

    IOUG IoT SIG Webcast: Affective Computing-Driven Campaign and CRM Systems

    Thursday, August 6, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Emotions drive consumer actions and purchase decisions. Yet, surveys, sentimental analysis, and other available consumer research tools are not able to quantify consumers’ emotions -- how they really feel about their brand engagement.Consumers experience brands by developing feelings for those brands and emotional connections to them, and talking about those brands with other people. The problem, however, is that real-time analytics for return on engagement is difficult to obtain, and yet understanding how and why people engage with your brand is the linchpin to achieving success. 

    How can wearables and the Internet of Things help brands quantify consumer perceptions of brands and drive purchase decisions?Join this webinar to find how The Art of Human Emotions answers this question for brands.

    In his presentation, Scott will touch specifically on the Neuroscience, affective computing, AI/ machine learning Affection Emotion Sensing Platform (ESP).

    Featured Speaker: Scott Amyx, CEO of Amyx+McKinsey

    Data Pipeline Patterns for Hadoop

    Wednesday, August 19, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Hadoop has become the de facto platform for big data processing and several different use cases are implemented on Hadoop constantly. One common use case is to run a data pipleine that takes raw data at one end and delivers actionable insights at the other end using Hadoop. While the applications and the business drivers may be different with each of these data processing pipelines, we can clearly see certain common patterns and challenges across them. In this talk, we will cover some of the patterns and tools used in these pipelines and also touch on simple solutions and ideas for common problems in this space. 

    Featured Speaker: Aravind Srinivasan, Lead Applications Architect, Altiscale

    Eliminate System Vulnerabilities Faster with Integrated Technology Patching

    Wednesday, September 2, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    According to the 2015 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report more than 99% of system breaches occurred more than a year after the exploited system vulnerability had been identified. 

    Oracle’s unique ability to deliver integrated technology patches allows organizations to accelerate the process and lower the cost of eliminating known system vulnerabilities. This session will examine unique components of Oracle’s technology, product and support strategy that allows it to create and deliver comprehensive patches that reduce its customers’ exposure to known vulnerabilities and simplifies the process of system maintenance. 

    Participants will leave with: 

    • An understanding of Oracle's patching strategy, including: server, operating system, virtualization, storage and networking 
    • Customer examples of how integrated patching has improved their system maintenance processes and limited unplanned downtime

    VMware SIG Webcast: Myth-Defied! Busting the Myths of Database Virtualization

    Thursday, September 10, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Perhaps, if you have been living under a rock on a far distant planet, void of anything technical and perhaps, if the internet is not delivered directly to your home, work, phone or car then perhaps, just perhaps, you have not heard of the IT rage known as ‘Virtualization’. The more likely scenario, however, is that you, the Oracle professional, receive daily messages from more vendors than you can count, all espousing the ease and virtue of ‘Private Clouds’, ‘Public Clouds’, and ‘Platform as a Service’ encouraging you to make the virtualization leap today or be left behind tomorrow… 

    Yet amidst all of these choices and clamor, how do you find the truth? More importantly, as a concerned Oracle professional, should you even consider placing your most valuable data assets within a virtual infrastructure? Can mission-critical Oracle databases even run on virtual infrastructures? What is fact? What is myth? And in the end, where does this all lead? 

    In 2008, Indiana University grappled with many of these questions and more, ultimately arriving at a multi-year strategy which has allowed the institution to successfully migrate all enterprise class, mission-critical systems to the virtual infrastructure. Busting database virtualization myths and taboos, the University realized seven figure cost savings and experienced clear operational improvements, all while supporting the data needs of more than 120,000 students, faculty and staff. 

    Bring your hardhats and safety goggles as we explore various Oracle database virtualization myths both BUSTED and CONFIRMED based upon the University’s years of virtualized database experience.
