Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory: Adventures with SwingBench TPC-DS - Jim Czuprynski, Oracle Ace Director

Originally introduced in Release, Database In-Memory (DBIM) offers the ability for analytic queries to sift through billions of rows at incredible speed because data is now retained in columnar format in the In-Memory Column Store (IMCS). Oracle Database 12cR2 dramatically expands the capabilities of DBIM, making it even simpler to implement, monitor, and manage while extending its reach to more complex execution plans, expanding its utility to Active Data Guard (ADG) instances, and enabling capture of frequently-evaluated expressions in the Expression Statistics Store (ESS).

Session Outline: Through presentations and examples using Swingbench’s latest TPC-DS query generation features, this session will illustrate how Oracle 12.2 Database In-Memory:
- Dramatically speeds execution of analytic queries through In-Memory Column Store (IMCS)
- improves the management and monitoring of the IMCS
- Improves complex query execution through improvements like Expressions Statistics Store, In-Memory Filtering, and In-Memory Joins
