Data Clustering: A Key To Developing High Performance & Scalable Apps”

Today’s agile applications have to deal with ever increasing data volumes; rich varieties of data types with their associated intricate/flexibility requirements; and complex hybrid cloud-based environments, where critical high volume transactional-based applications have to function in combination with equally important real-time advanced data analytics reporting solutions. As such, having an innovative data clustering strategy in combination with appropriate data-aware deployments is vital to ensure today’s complex applications are high-performing, scalable, and robust. Many of today’s applications struggle to perform or scale because they lack the necessary flexible indexing and data management strategies at the database layer. This session will demonstrate various innovative data clustering and indexing-based tricks and tactics that will ensure applications run as efficiently as possible, regardless of the size or complexity of the underlying data management layer.

“Oracle Database 18c New Features”

This session will look at some of the key new features and capabilities introduced in Oracle Database 18c. New features discussed include Memory Optimized Row Store for OLTP workloads, Database In-Memory for External Tables, Inline External Tables, In-Memory Database improvements, Zero Impact Grid Infrastructure Patching, Alter Partitioned Table Merge Online, Alter Table Modify Partitioned Table to Partitioned Table, Approximate Query improvements, Private Temporary Tables and Polymorphic Table Functions. The session will also discuss how to play with some of these new features now without the need for an Oracle Cloud account.”
