Using Oracle R and OBIEE to Help Doctors Predict Areas with the Most Severe Health Problems
                Cuong Nguyen Tien, Mindstream Analytics

In every field we fight scarcity and shortage. In our session we will talk about the shortage of doctors and healthcare providers. What can we do to help healthcare organizations pick efficiently the areas with specific health problems and invest their efforts there?

In our session you will learn how to form a predictive model of specific aspect of health using Oracle R. We then apply the model to a global grid and have OBIEE visualize the areas with the most severe health problems. Healthcare organizations will be able to decrease the costs and efficiently use the resources to focus on the areas that need help the most.

High Powered Data Replication and Transformation Using Oracle GoldenGate 12c
Tom Eastlake, Vertical Edge

Explore the capabilities of GoldenGate 12c, for low-impact, high-speed replication, as well as those supporting data integration and preparation.   Oracle’s flagship data replication suite uses effective approaches to copy data and structures across databases, achieving very near real-time data movement seamlessly.   It does this with the absolute minimum impact to the system being copied, and with complete transaction-level recoverability for zero data loss even in system failure. Pair these capabilities with GoldenGate 12c’s data transformation features, and you have a compelling total-data-integration solution. I’ll lead you in a discussion of these features and practical scenarios for deployment.

Essbase for R (Not R for Essbase)
Jon Keskitalo, eCapital Advisors

"Machine learning" and other types of advanced analysis are the next big opportunities for business, but large organizations are still trying to figure out how to make full use of their potential. Tools like the R language are gateways to these concepts, but how do they fit into our existing world? Most people don't realize that at the heart of many of these technologies lies a familiar concept: multidimensional cubes! Follow a walk-through of a machine learning project coded in pure, native Essbase, and see how this standard corporate analytical technology might be a lot closer to the bleeding edge than you think. If you have been looking for an intro to machine learning concepts via the lens of dimensions and cubes, this is the presentation for you.

Unbiased Comparison: Evaluating All Deployment Options for Hyperion EPM – SaaS vs. IaaS vs. On-Prem
                Eric Helmer, Mercury Technology Group

Today, the word "cloud" is everywhere, and it's causing a lot of confusion. Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) are completely different solutions but are all considered "cloud."

This session will compare and contrast the different available options Oracle customers have to deploy Oracle EPM. It will break down all Oracle's cloud offerings, IaaS, third-party hosting, traditional on-premise deployments including Exalytics, and hybrid approaches.

This session will read between all marketing lines and discuss what’s possible and what’s a bit overstated. It will cover differences in functionality, data integration, security, flexibility, and scalability. Finally, we will evaluate the differences in costs, including hardware, software licensing, and ongoing maintenance.

If you are looking to make a decision on how best to deploy, upgrade, or outsource Oracle EPM this is a don’t miss webinar.

2017 CodeTalk Series - Unit Testing PL/SQL Code in the Real World
Steven Feuerstein, Oracle Corporation

2017 CodeTalk Series is Co-Sponsored by ODTUG and IOUG.

These days, you can choose from SQL Developer with its integrated unit testing, utPLSQL, an open source framework, Code Tester for Oracle, a commercial product from Quest Software, and more. In this CodeTalk, Steven hosts a conversation with three developers who have been heavily involved in establishment strong unit testing processes with their dev teams. Learn from their experiences, mistakes and lessons!

Taste of Kscope17 Webinar Series: The EPM Clouds are Rolling in Fast! Is It Really Worth Upgrading My On-Prem System Now?
Joe Malewiki, iArch Solutions

So it’s here. The storm has been brewing and it looks like this time, we might actually see some weather. The reality is yes; everything is headed to the cloud. However, this session isn’t about “tomorrow.” It’s about TODAY.

Today you have a fully baked production running EPM/Hyperion system. You’ve got Essbase cubes crunching data, Financial Management Consolidations firing off daily, Planning web forms being updated every week and finally tons of users with a local version of Excel 2010 on Windows 7 complaining daily “Smart View is too slow!” You’ve got IT and Risk Management stating Microsoft has cut off the version of SQL Server and Windows 4 years ago yet Hyperion is still lingering along on these unsupported platforms. Why? Because you can’t run your business WITHOUT Hyperion.

In this session we’ll help you address and develop a plan with minimal to NO downtime to get your “on-prem” Hyperion installation up to the latest and greatest available from Oracle. We’ll help you decide what makes the most sense for an upgrade path: On-prem hardware, virtualizing, hosted environments, or shared resources. Discussions on 3rd party hosting providers and yes, discussions on Oracle’s Cloud versions of their EPM software stack and how all relates to an upgrade.

You’ll see a LIVE demonstration of “BEFORE” and “AFTER Upgrade” real world EPM application performance and system functionality. So please join us for this educational and informative session and let’s get you up to where you should be today! And remember – someone’s “cloud” is just someone else’s “computer.”

Data Modeling, BI Modeling and/or Data Blending. What Should I Do?
Hasso Schaap, Qualogy

Oracle now provides many options to create relationships and other structure within data and between data sets. But when having all the options it is important to understand the differences between all these types of modeling and choose the right tool to do your modeling.

This session will explain the different types of modeling and modeling tools, compare (dis-) advantages and guide you to choose the right modeling tool for the right modeling job. We will also share how we leveraged all types of modeling and blending to create maximum value for our customers.

We will finally present a collaborative BI workflow that puts a lot of Oracle modeling tools in one overview. Tools we will be mentioning are Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler, Oracle BI Cloud Data Modeler, BI Admin Tool and Data Preparation, and the Blending features of modern Oracle Data Visualization.
