What We Learned Building Analytics for Google

How should we approach analytics when the serverless cloud is the only option? Cloud-native data platforms enable developers to build applications quickly. In this presentation, learn how Red Pill Analytics stitched together data from across the internet to tell a social media story for our client Google using the Google Cloud Platform. Hear how we used BigQuery, App Engine, PubSub, Cloud Functions and Data Studio to build a complete marketing analytics platform measuring user engagement from sources including Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google Analytics, Google+ and AdWords. What challenges did we face? What decisions did we make? And how did the Google Cloud Platform enable us to deliver all of this in less than 3 months? We can only show you the door…… you have to choose to walk through it.


Leveraging Advanced SQL for Analytics

Most analysts, data scientists, and aspiring data scientists know basic SQL for pulling data from databases that they then put into Python, R, and other tools. What if you could save a step and run the analytics right in the database? With the Oracle Database you can do most of the same functions that you could do with a data miner, R, statistics, etc. all with SQL. In this session, we’ll walk through advanced SQL functions such as statistics functions, analytic & windowing SQL, pattern matching, and prediction.

How come so many data initiatives fail? While there are many answers to this question, several themes run through them: data is hard to get to, it’s hard to understand, or it’s hard to know what is important. This talk challenges conventional thinking on data, business intelligence and analytics initiatives and asks “What can we do differently?” to gain better insight, and enable successful teams.


Vendor Awareness Session: Delivering Analytics with the Complete User Experience

Analytics and business intelligence tools continue to deliver new and exciting capabilities, but alone, they often fall short of providing a complete user experience. How do we deliver analytics of the user, by the user and for the user?

Let Innive Inc. and Red Pill Analytics show you the way. The Innive UX/UI framework is a comprehensive visualization platform providing an enriched, role-based experience. Using a combination of flat, contemporary design and flow-based navigation, it delivers an analytics experience instead of a series of generic dashboards. Relevant for any device, the UX/UI framework is templated to present the perfect level of detail for any audience group: executives, operational managers or analysts. With rich search and launch capabilities, the framework is a thin, non-intrusive layer that can be deployed with or without Oracle Analytics. With customer examples and live demonstrations, join us and discover the Complete User Experience.

Apache Kafka is a massively scalable message queue used for building real-time data pipelines and streaming applications that are high-performing and fault tolerant. This presentation will introduce Kafka from the perspective of a mere mortal Oracle DBA and share the experience of (and challenges with) getting events from relational databases to Kafka.

We’ll demonstrate some commercial products, including Oracle GoldenGate for Big Data and The Dbvisit Replicate Connector. We’ll also demonstrate using the built-in JDBC Kafka Connector, and how it can be customized to use Oracle Flashback Versions Query to deliver streaming events to Kafka.


Who are these people? Analyzing COLLABORATE Attendee Data

Join me for a case study where I explain how I used Oracle Advanced Analytics tools to answer questions for the user group boards about the attendees of Collaborate and their experiences. I’ll show the process of first collecting the data and cleaning it to make it usable. Then I’ll show the data mining and machine learning algorithms I used within SQL Developer Data Miner. Lastly, I’ll show R functions that I used for further analysis. In the end, these insights were used to improve your experience at Collaborate!


One Platform to Rule Them All?

Determining the toolset for any project can be difficult. When it comes to Big Data however, the number of choices for tools are seemingly endless, and the breadth of combinations of different technologies is mind blowing. With data coming from, being stored, processed and consumed in so many places, is it possible to consolidate a big data solution onto one platform? This talk sets out to answer that question by discussing an AWS only big data solution, with our industry insights and recommedations on implementations as well.
