Transforming Enterprise IT into Private Clouds using Oracle Enterprise Manager
As enterprise cloud computing moves into mainstream production environments, cloud management becomes the key mechanism to unlock the value contained in these elastic environments. In this session, we will discuss Oracle’s road map for enterprise cloud computing and its unique approach for managing enterprise clouds. Using real-life experiences from customers and Oracle’s own private and public clouds, we will demonstrate essential elements of a successfully-managed enterprise cloud.

Building a cloud with Oracle RAC/ASM/CFS and clusterware
Cloud computing is becoming mainstream. Oracle has been and continues to be at the forefront of this exciting technology. We will discuss the value and motivation of cloud computing, briefly. We will discuss the Oracle database and system technology to build a cloud environment. Specifically, we will discuss the best way to use the Grid Infrastructure (Automatic storage management, Clouds file system, Cluster ready services, Quality of services)! and Real Application Cluster (RAC) and a bit about Cloud Control (Grid Control). We will touch on the benefits and return on investment of various types of virtualization including HW, storage and database. We will point to a few customers that have implemented such architecture.

Modern Development, Mobility and Rich Enterprise Applications
Are your enterprise development projects demanding more than web applications? If so, you can benefit from Rich Enterprise Applications – server side, rich web applications that are pre-integrated to enterprise technology. Developers and Architects attending this session will learn about applications that connect RIA to Portal and Collaboration Services, Business Process and Workflow, and render them in browser clients, iOS / Android Mobile devices, and more. Learn the latest about the development platform Oracle is using for its Fusion applications, and the latest advances in Oracle JDeveloper, Oracle ADF, Oracle WebCenter, and the Fusion Middleware development platform.

Trade-offs in Cloud Storage Architecture
Cloud storage systems, including NoSQL data stores, are gaining widespread adoption. In contrast to “traditional” relational data stores, these cloud storage systems sacrifice consistency in favor of high availability; only “eventual consistency” is guaranteed. However, how soon (how late, respectively) is “eventual”, and does it matter? The consistency-versus-availability discussion exemplifies one of many trade-offs in cloud computing – not all objectives ranging from scalability, reliability, security to cost-efficiency can be met at the same time. In this talk, we discuss trade-offs in cloud computing and present a solution roadmap to manage these trade-offs.

The Oracle Database, Oracle Application Express and the Cloud
The benefits of cloud computing are manifold, including reduction in cost and greater flexibility. But cloud computing does not have to equal Internet. The benefits of cloud computing can be realized with several different architectures. Learn how customers are exploiting the combination of the Oracle Database with Oracle Application Express to provide the benefits of the cloud.

Mark Townsend

Vice President Database
Oracle Corporation

Extreme Data Management — Are You Ready?
Many IT organizations are faced with high-velocity data streams that generate exponentially growing volumes of data in a variety of different formats. So how do you consolidate, scale, and manage all this data in a secure, reliable, and cost-effective manner? More importantly, how quickly can you integrate and analyze all this data in a manner that delivers real business value? In this general session, Vice President Mark Townsend presents an update on the latest developments from Oracle Database Server Technologies and how to turn extreme data into business opportunity.

Paul Needham

Senior Director, Product Management, Database Security
Oracle Corporation

Maximum Security Architecture for the Databases
Privacy, compliance, and insider and external threats are just a few of the challenges confronting organizations both large and small. In this session, you will learn about Oracle's maximum security architecture, a defense-in-depth security approach that provides flexibility, transparency, and support for heterogeneous database environments including Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, and SAP Sybase. Through demos of various products, you would see how Oracle security products and technologies can help you discover sensitive data, classify data, configure security, encrypt and mask sensitive data, control access by privileged users, audit sensitive operations, and prevent attacks from even reaching the database through a database firewall.

Social and Collaborative BPM pushing organizational excellence
Organizational excellence, an aggregate of the pertinent measures reflecting the functioning of an organization, is critically dependent on the effective utilization of organizational knowledge. Social computing and collaboration can be great facilitators of bringing the knowledge workers closer together in creating innovative and efficient solutions to business problems thus helping to increase the overall organizational excellence. Superior Business Process Management (BPM), a comprehensive discipline for implementation, execution, administration, monitoring and improvement of business processes in an organization, is a major contributor to organizational excellence. Many activities in BPM, both during design-time and run-time phases, are inherently social and collaborative. This presentation will describe the underlying concepts involved in leveraging social computing and collaboration towards a faster and successful BPM adoption. The presentation will also illustrate how the next-generation BPM Suites (BPMS) such as Oracle BPM Suite incorporate such concepts in its product features and implementation methodologies.

Data Warehousing with Oracle: Exadata, Oracle Database 11g, and beyond
Both data sizes and the need for analysis are growing at a faster rate than many IT organizations are able to handle. We will discuss what Oracle offers customers to deal with these challenges: we will talk about Oracle database 11g Release 2, and Exadata. We will also highlight some industry trends that will have a large impact on the way data warehousing is done in the future.
