        speaker: Debra Lilley

Is Oracle Integration Cloud a ‘nice to have’ or almost mandatory for SaaS projects? Well, you guessed it, the answer is ‘it depends’. Let’s talk through some use cases and things that might help you decide.

       How to do Unit Tests and Not go Crazy (and Bankrupt)
        speaker: Monika Lewandowska

Unit tests are useful. Unit tests are essential. All of us are doing the UT, aren’t we? We try to do our best but in real life, UTs are expensive and consume a lot of time. When we finally find a bug – it turns out that the bug is in the test itself.
And the deadline is coming…
Can we do the UT easier, less expensive, and more effective?
YES, WE CAN!
I would like to show you how to design your application, write your PL/SQL code and prepare test cases in a way that will help to build Unit Tests and perform them in a fast, efficient, and exciting way!


12:00pm  (CEST)            
        RPA – The reality behind the Hype
        speaker: Mia Urman

Robotic Process Automation. It’s the latest automation concept that is creating a major buzz and revolutionizing the way organizations work. So what indications point towards the need for automating your own business processes? How can your organization quickly realize the power of automation and its ability to deliver long-term success? In this session we will review the major benefits of robotic process automation for Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle developers. The session will include live demos and also share customer success stories.


1:00pm  (CEST)     
        Triple C – Centralize, Cloudify and Consolidate Dozens of Oracle Databases
        speakers: Lucas Jellema

Dozens of Oracle Databases – each health center location has one on its local server with the same data model and the same set of applications. These databases have to be centralized and cloudified and also be consolidated into one or as few databases as possible. To lower costs, ease operations and enable innovation. Each location can access only its own data, applications do not have to be changed and different locations can run different versions of applications and database objects. This is the story of a critical migration. About the cloud ready analysis, the Proofs of Concept with Oracle Database features VPD and Edition Based Redefinition, the scalability investigation, the redesign of change management, rollout and operational management processes and the careful modernization of a 25 year old platform on the latest database release and a shiny new, fully automated cloud platform.
This is the story of an organization that had state of the art systems in the mid-90s. And they have these same systems today – no longer state of the art. They can keep the systems alive, but barely, and at increasing cost. In the Fall of 2020, we started an investigation into the feasibility of bringing the 100s of databases from each of the locations together, in a central location, in the cloud and finally: consolidated into one or at least as few database instances as possible. Using Oracle Database Virtual Private Database and Edition Based Redefinition, a smart database connection configuration in each store and a limited reimplementation of non-cloud/non-consolidated mechanisms (interaction with local file system for example) we have designed and proven a working new design and migration approach.


 2:00pm    (CEST)             
       10 tips on choosing the best Oracle Analytics strategy. The differences between OBIA, EPM, OTBI and the new FAW
        speaker: Gustavo Gonzalez

The addition to the Oracle Analytics Portfolio of Fusion Analytics Warehouse or FAW brings an analytical application that maximizes the value of ERP Cloud data by turning finance data into actionable insights. Learn how to choose the right analytical tool today.

In short, Fusion Analytics Warehouse, or FAW, is an analytical application that maximizes the value of ERP Cloud data by turning finance data into actionable insights. It empowers finance users to monitor business performance with pre-built or custom key performance indicators (KPIs). It is adaptable to combine ERP Cloud Data with data from other sources to enable cross-functional insight and a single trusted view of the enterprise.
We will provide a description and roadmap of the products in the Oracle Analytics space and how they would apply to solve your data requirements needs. We’ll review the tech aspects of FAW, which is powered by ADW and OAC. We will explore some capabilities and support timelines on OBIA, OTBI, EPM, and OAX and why a combination provides a complete finance analytic solution. A final review on implementation aspects for security, extensibility, and deployment.

       The future of AI & Machine Learning (ML) in Oracle Products
        speaker: Rich Niemiec

Oracle’s ability to leverage AI and Machine Learning (ML) from within Oracle Machine Learning (OML), OAC, SaaS or using their recent acquisition GUI is flexible. Oracle products will all start to leverage AI/ML! Knowing when/where to leverage these advancements may be the difference between success & failure in the future. We’ll look at the latest technology and algorithms that Oracle provides as part of the product, but also the Cx products that are used to leverage AI/ML & Chatbots. We will explore how to leverage and integrate AI into your companies tech plan. We’ll see the state of AI & ML and how you can test and use this technology to create the future. We’ll also look at the current Acceleration of the Cloud with the Big Data Revolution & Internet of Things (IOT) which will drive the Cloud even Faster. You’ll see how to innovate better using leading edge Oracle products.

       Oracle Exadata Cloud Services 101
        speaker: Zahid Anwar

In this presentation I will go through what is Exadata Cloud Services, the current offerings, costing, licensing and also how it differs with Exadata on premise and Exadata Cloud @ Customer.

This presentation is from the insights from one of our current managed service customer which we wrote up a proposal to replace on-prem Exadata with either Exadata Cloud Services, Exadata Cloud @ Customer or hybrid. They had decided to go hybrid with Exadata Cloud @ Customer with Exadata Cloud Services for Disaster Recovery
