Oracle Big Data SQL radically reduces these barriers to entry, by providing unified query and management of data in Oracle Database, Hadoop, and NoSQL.

    In this session, you’ll learn the following:

    1. When and where big data technologies like Hadoop become interesting to your organization

    2. Understand the concepts behind Hadoop and how Big Data SQL leverages these concepts

    Turning Reactive Approach Into Proactive

    Wednesday, October 29, 2014 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Do you know every aspect of your Oracle database? From each parameter, to the data health, down to the data block level? If you did and you were able to stay on top of all those details when a crisis occurred, would you immediately have the confidence to know what the problem wasn't?

    The best offense is to have a plan and be able to work that plan. Regular health checks are the best approach to ensure you stay on top of all those details and are always prepared for the scenarios you might be reacting to on a regular basis today. This presentation will outline the tools to use to transition from defense into the best offense by working and planning pro-actively.

    - How SQL Plan Management (SPM) works
    - H
    ow SQL Plan Baselines are created
    - Ho
