Join this session to see a live demonstration of a new solution to this problem—Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service. See how Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service takes “noisy” data from a broad variety of sources in many different formats, both structured and unstructured, and uses sophisticated statistical, knowledge-based, and machine-learning algorithms to cleanse, enrich, and blend it into useful data streams, ready for further discovery, analysis, and reporting.

Session 1 – Mining Automatic Workload Repository: Alternative Methods for Identification of the Top SQLs 

Date/Time: October 25, 1:30 pm – 2:15 pm | Moscone South—308

Is there a better way to identify the starting point for the tuning of a resource-bound system? This session explains when the Automatic Workload Repository reports are misleading and how to look at stored data from a different angle to determine the top consumers. This session includes a practical demonstration using scripts for Automatic Workload Repository mining that attendees can apply to their own challenging database performance tuning problems.
