2016 Keynote Presentations

Why Use PL/SQL?
Bryn Llewellyn, Distinguished Product Manager, Oracle Corporation

Large software systems must be built from modules. A module hides its implementation behind an interface that exposes its functionality. This is computer science’s most famous principle. For applications that use an Oracle Database, the database is the persistence module. The tables and the SQL statements that manipulate them are the implementation details. The interface is expressed with PL/SQL. Developers and users of applications built this way are happy with their correctness, maintainability, security, and performance. But when developers follow the NoPlsql paradigm, their applications have problems in each of these areas and users suffer. This session provides PL/SQL devotees with unassailable arguments to defend their beliefs against attacks from skeptics. Skeptics who attend will see the light. Bryn has written a whitepaper that gives a careful and detailed account of what his presentation addresses. You can download it from the Oracle Database PL/SQL and EBR blog.

Oracle Database In-Memory - What’s New and What’s Coming
Maria Colgan, Product Manager, Oracle Corporation

Oracle Database In-Memory transparently accelerates analytics by orders of magnitude, allowing users to get immediate answers to business-driving questions that previously took hours or days. This session provides a clear understanding of how Oracle's unique “dual format” architecture works and illustrates how the new in-memory functionality interacts with key database performance features such as Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC), Oracle Exadata, and much more. Attendees will also get a sneak peak at where Oracle Database In-Memory is going next.
