User Group Forum Sessions

Data Streaming and Analytic Microservices [UGF6162]
Stewart Bryson, Owner and Co-founder, Red Pill Analytics
Sunday, Sep 18, 1:00 p.m. — 1:45 p.m. | Moscone South — 301

Although traditional data warehouses excel at sourcing data from enterprise applications, they usually fail at handling the volume, velocity, and variety of new sources of information. Instead of modeling these datasources into a system that does not fit, apply new software design patterns to analytics: microservices. Microservices are small, independent applications — building blocks that provide distinct functionality and are optimized for the task at hand. In this presentation, Apache Kafka is used as the data streaming hub for ingesting data bound for one or more analytic platforms: an enterprise data warehouse; a Hadoop system for batch processing; and lightweight, purpose-built microservices in the cloud or on premises.


Getting Started with Data Discovery: You Do Not Have to Go Big to Gain Big [UGF6599]
Kathryn Watson, Consultant, Red Pill Analytics
Stewart Bryson, Owner and Co-founder, Red Pill Analytics
Sunday, Sep 18, 2:15 p.m. — 3:00 p.m. | Moscone West — 3018

The rumors are not true — kicking off data discovery within your organization does not have to consume time, personnel resources, and costs. By defining pointed use cases; supplementing your existing Oracle technologies; and dedicating a small, strategic team to the effort, your data discovery initiative can be well under way within a few short weeks. This session walks you through how one of the nation’s top cancer centers leveraged its existing Oracle and statistical platforms to get its data discovery initiative up and running with streamlined personnel and budgetary resources. Attendees will gain the knowledge they need to get data discovery up and running in their own organizations, no matter their personnel or budgetary constraints.

Kevin McGinley, Owner and Co-founder, Red Pill Analytics
Sunday, Sep 18, 11:45 a.m. — 12:30 p.m. | Moscone South — 301

Now that you own Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service, this session walks you through the details of how to load data into the cloud using the data sync tool that Oracle provides. You will see how to get up and running with the tool, how to load data from files and databases, and how to manage the ongoing refresh of the data. In addition, the session provides tips for managing your end-to-end data flow, including transformations within the schema as a service.
