Here are the abstracts for the presentations:

  • Title: Keynote Presentation: BIGDATA by Helen Sun, Oracle

Abstract: If your organization is like many, you're capturing and sharing more data from more sources than ever before.  As a result, you're facing the challenge of managing high-volume and high-velocity data streams quickly and analytically.  BIG DATA is all about finding a needle of value in a haystack of unstructured information.  Companies are finding value in analyzing consumer behavior, detecting fraud, and even predicting the future!  New supporting IT strategies include data mining, statistics, visualization, and semantics.  But for IT planning and enterprise architecture, it is not about just what is different.  It's also about how to integrate what's new to what you already have - from database-and-BI infrastructure to IT tools, and end user applications.  This is the right time to learn more.  At this Oracle EA Big Data presentation we will discuss big data economics, the impact on your enterprise information architecture, and use cases from data acquisition to analysis.  We'll cover the following topics: 1. Big Data Architecture Characteristics and Requirements, 2. Oracle's End-to-End Integrated Big Data Solution and Platform, 3. Big Data Industry Use Cases, 4. Big Data Architecture Deep Dive


  • Title: Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c by Eric Rudie, Oracle

Abstract: Oracle Enterprise Manager is Oracle's premiere cloud management solution. It is the industry's first complete solution including self-service provisioning balanced against centralized, policy-based resource management, integrated chargeback and capacity planning and complete visibility of the physical and virtual environments from applications to disk.  In this session we will review the newest features of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control and how it can be used to maintain software, diagnose performance issues, and reduce the time to perform daily tasks.

  • Title: Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c - What's New, What's Changed? by Mike Messina, ROLTA Tusc

  • Title: Storage Technology Trends for Oracle Database by Richard Lyle, Oracle

Abstract: Oracle Databases support a growing number of applications in today's data centers, and the rapidly growing storage requirements to support them are adding complexity and squeezing out business innovation.  Oracle's portfolio of optimized storage solutions are co-engineered with Oracle Database to deliver unique optimizations that reduce storage footprint, increase performance, streamline backups, and simplify management.  Come learn about these overall trends and how the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance implements 4 areas of optimization to reduce complexity and lower total cost of ownership.


  • Title: Data Protection Solutions for Oracle Database by Richard Lyle, Oracle

Abstract: Oracle Databases manage vast volumes of business critical data, data that enterprises literally cannot live without.  Protecting your Oracle Databases from multiple types of data loss is a key component of an optimized data center that can be easily overlooked or over-specified, resulting in either an elevated risk of data loss or inflated costs.  Come and learn about the data protection challenges in today's optimized data centers and understand how Oracle's storage solutions work together with the rest of the Oracle stack to provide the ultimate, integrated data protection solution for Oracle Databases.


  • Title: Oracle Database Environment Optimization by Brian Dumont, Dewpoint

 Abstract: Learn about a strategic new way to analyze the total cost of ownership for your entire Oracle Database environment - not just the software.  During this live demo, Dewpoint will walk through its new TCO application which takes in real-world data about your hardware, software and staffing environment. In turn, it provides a cost benefit analysis for up to five different technology upgrade paths, such as Exadata, Oracle Database Appliance, SPARC T4 and T5 servers, or Intel services running Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) and Oracle Virtual Machine (OVM).  And for comparison, a "do-nothing" analysis is provided.  Dewpoint's systematic datacenter review methodology will assist you in determining the highest performing and most cost effective architectural direction available today tailored to your organization's needs, given the array of choices.


  • Title: Oracle GoldenGate - Overview, Best Practices and Architecture by Trevor Davies, Oracle

  • Title: WebLogic Server - Introduction and General Concepts by Ramdas Chakkungal and Abhay Kumar, AST Corp

 Abstract: Oracle WebLogic Server is a scalable, enterprise-ready Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application server.  The WebLogic Server infrastructure supports the deployment of many types of distributed applications and is an ideal foundation for building applications based on Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).  SOA is a design methodology aimed at maximizing the reuse of application services.  This session would cover the details around WebLogic Server:  A. Programming Models: Web Logic Server provides complete support for the Java EE 5.0, B. High Availability: Cluster, Work Managers, Overload Protection, Store and Forward Services, C. Security, D. Oracle Jrockit JVM


  • Title: WebLogic Server System Administration - 10 Fundamental Concepts One Must Know by Ramdas Chakkungal and Abhay Kumar, AST Corp

 Abstract: Oracle WebLogic Server is the foundation for Oracle Middleware Technologies and is the future for Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle Cloud & Hosted solution. This presentation provides the top ten fundamental administrative details/techniques that every Middleware consultants (developer, architects and administrators) must know.  Implementation of these would simplify the middleware technology implementation, administration and support activities.  This session would cover the details around: a. Directories and Domains, b. Node Manager, c. Notification using Diagnostic Framework, d. Managing Server Logs, e. Cache Management, f. Troubleshoot and debug WLS using logs and thread dumps, g. Tune Server Environment including JVM, h. Monitoring server through WLS Dashboard, i. Back-Up Server Files


  • Title: Advanced concepts of WebLogic Server Monitoring using WLDF and Jrockit Mission Control by Ramdas Chakkungal, AST Corp

Abstract: WebLogic is one of the most widely used application servers in today's marketplace and hence it becomes important to keep a check on the servers health, and throughput.  This presentation will cover the different tools which can be used for monitoring, managing and profiling and eliminating memory leaks in the application without requiring the performance overhead normally associated with these types of tools.

  • Title: Oracle Service Bus by Abhay Kumar, AST Corp


Abstract: The Oracle Service Bus 11g (OSB) is a scalable SOA integration platform that delivers an efficient, standards-based infrastructure for high-volume, mission ciritical SOA environments.  The Oracle Service Bus (OSB) is part of the Oracle SOA Suite 11g and stands in the center of modern process-and integration-solutions.  The lightweight, stateless and high-performance architecture of the OSB turns it into an excellent tool for doing transformation and routing of messages. It is designed to connect, mediate, and manage interactions between heterogenous services, legacy applications, packaged applications and multiple Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) implementations (such as other OSB instances, Microsoft BizTalk, IBM WebSphere ESB, SAP-XI, ... and so on) across an enterprise-wide service network.  Oracle Service Bus is a core component of the Oracle SOA Suite.  This presentation explains where and when the usage of the OSB makes sense but also shows the limits of the OSB.


  • Title: FLASH Storage Media by Randy Cook, Violin Memory

Abstract: In today's ever growing database environments and the age old plea for performance, the requirement for faster, denser storage is rapidly becoming necessity rather than luxury.  This presentation is aimed at informing the audience of the presence of NAND based flash storage media, how it addressed performance bottlenecks inside the Big Data environments, and educates them upon the different types out there and how they can be implemented.  Known best practices are delivered as well.
