This session will explore new features and best practices for using various partitioning features while providing maximum performance and availability, including merge and exchange partitions and the latest database partitioning enhancements introduced in Oracle Database 11g and 12c. These take partitioning to perfection and offer the widest choice of partitioning methods, which include reference, interval, system, list, range, virtual column-based, and new composite partitioning enhancements.
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT No More Surprises – Integrate Automated Regression Testing into the Everyday for Oracle Hyperion Jonathan Berry, Accelatis
This session will discuss how regular automated testing of key performance elements of your Oracle Hyperion environment can greatly reduce issues experienced by your users. Having regular and consistent results to key performance data can expose potential infrastructure and application issues very early. This benchmark data can become leading indicators to the health of the overall system, allowing for proactive performance management to enhance the experience of your end-user community. We’ll look at three case studies of Hyperion clients that proactively test for conditions and review not only what they test for but also how they analyze and leverage the data. We will also discuss how Accelatis Ascension Suite can enable this testing.

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT Thinking Strategically: Critically Assessing Your Current EPM/BI Applications Joe Aultman, interRel
In today's “git ’er done now” world, people rarely stop implementing and maintaining long enough to ask themselves, “What's the point?” In this session, we will teach you how to go from thinking tactically about specific applications to thinking strategically about how all the products work well together. Covered will be specific assessment techniques such as when to put things in cubes vs. relational databases, determining which BI products should be discontinued, ways to integrate BI products from multiple vendors, and how to prepare a three- to five-year strategic roadmap that will drive your company forward. If you want to be the one at your company who can rise above the fray and see the big picture of Oracle EPM and BI, then you should definitely attend this session!
