Engineered Systems: Oracle’s Vision for the Future

Oracle’s Exadata and Exalogic are impressive products in their own right. But working in combination they deliver unparalleled transaction processing performance with up to a 30x increase over existing legacy systems, with the lowest cost of ownership over a 3 or 5 year basis than any other hardware. In this session you’ll learn how to leverage Oracle’s Engineered Systems within your enterprise to deliver record-breaking performance at the lowest TCO.
10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Diagnosability vs. The Cloud

In our increasingly virtualized environments, it's ever more difficult to diagnose application defects – especially performance defects that affect response time or throughput expectations. Runtime diagnosis of defects can be an unbearably complicated problem to solve once the application is sealed up and put into production use. But having excellent runtime diagnostics is surprisingly easy if you design the diagnostic features into the application from its inception, as it is being grown, like you would with any other desired application feature.

Cloud Computing - Making IT Simple

The road to Cloud Computing is not without a few bumps. This session will help to smooth out your journey by tackling some of the potential complications. We’ll examine whether standardization is a prerequisite for the Cloud. We’ll look at why refactoring isn’t just for application code. We’ll check out deployable entities and their simplification via higher levels of abstraction. And we’ll close out the session with a look at engineered systems and modular clouds.

Innovations in Grid Computing with Oracle Coherence

Learn how Coherence can increase the availability, scalability and performance of your existing applications with its advanced low-latency data-grid technologies. Also hear some interesting industry-specific use cases that customers had implemented and how Oracle is integrating Coherence into its Enterprise Java stack.

Enterprise Strategy for Cloud Security

Security represents one of the biggest concerns about cloud computing. In this session we’ll get past the FUD with a real-world look at some key issues. We’ll discuss the infrastructure necessary to support rationalization and security services, explore architecture for defense–in-depth, and deal frankly with the good, the bad, and the ugly in Cloud security.

Oracle Enterprise Manager

Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) provides complete lifecycle management for the cloud - from automated cloud setup to self-service delivery to cloud operations. In this session you’ll learn how to take control of your cloud infrastructure with EM features including Consolidation Planning and Self-Service provisioning with Metering and Chargeback. Come hear how Oracle is expanding its management capabilities into the cloud!

Oracle Cloud Reference Architecture

Cloud initiatives are beginning to dominate enterprise IT roadmaps. Successful adoption of Cloud and the subsequent governance challenges warrant a Cloud reference architecture that is applied consistently across the enterprise. This presentation will answer the important questions: What exactly is a Cloud, why you need it, what changes it will bring to the enterprise, and what are the key capabilities of a Cloud infrastructure are - using Oracle's Cloud Reference Architecture, which is part of the IT Strategies from Oracle (ITSO) Cloud

21st Century SOA

Service Oriented Architecture has evolved from concept to reality in the last decade. The right methodology coupled with mature SOA technologies has helped customers demonstrate success in both innovation and ROI. In this session you will learn how Oracle SOA Suite’s orchestration, virtualization, and governance capabilities provide the infrastructure to run mission critical business and system applications. And we’ll take a special look at the convergence of SOA & BPM using Oracle’s Unified technology stack.
