Transform and modernize your Oracle Architecture with the new cloud-ready Database Appliance
Todd Hudson, Oracle
Sushil Motwani, Rolta Advizex

Who else would know more about simplify, optimize, and managing your database deployments than Oracle. The new Oracle Database Appliance will give your business more agility, cost-efficiency, and enhance performance while embracing the cloud. In today's networked and mobile business world, an ever-increasing number of applications and services are considered business critical, databases hold the organizations most critical assets. This information empowers the applications that businesses really care about. Supporting these databases represents one of the most expensive elements of overall IT spend. Learn about Oracle's solution for ultimate database infrastructure utilizing the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA), a complete, simple, reliable and affordable solution for running highly available databases and applications.

ODA is a complete package of software, server, storage, and networking that's engineered for simplicity; saving you time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of both databases and application workloads.

We'll share best practices from technology experts and then you'll have the opportunity to 'look under the hood' of the ODA.

Sushil Motwani has about 24 years of experience as an Oracle Professional, especially on the Oracle Database Administration / Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle Apps DBA technologies, Oracle Fusion Middleware Technologies and Business Intelligence Applications. He is a thought leader having published training material for Oracle University, published and presented on multiple occasions at events such as Collaborate (Oracle Applications User Group), Oracle Open World, Oracle Health Sciences Conference in Denver, Atlanta, New York, Las Vegas, Rome, Monte Carlo and multiple locations across New England.

SUNY ITEC Campus Analytics

SUNY ITEC Campus Analytics
Dan Brint, SUNY ITEC
Pavan Narayanan, SUNY ITEC

It Takes a Village ....

SUNY ITEC has been quietly working on a 'big data' project in the back room - with an eye to helping SUNY students succeed (graduate and get a job you bum).

In this session, you will hear from the multi-disciplinary team that has been cobbled together to help us gain insight from data and turn water to wine. (We will NOT be selling you anything.)

Old school boring infrastructure types, DBAs, application admins, business folks, and a new school data science guy band together to try to turn sand into pearls. We'll talk about our vision, our challenges and how everything that is old is new again (mostly).

Dan Brint, Enterprise IT Architect, SUNY ITEC

An IT professional with 25+ years experience in Oracle technologies, I am currently designing the IT architecture for our next generation service offerings in Higher Education.

I am a certified ITSM practitioner (ITIL v3 Foundation & Service Design) as well as a TOGAF V9 certified enterprise architect.

I am a father of two, a casual photographer and I have an appreciation for art, literature, cinema, music, motorcycles, bicycles and video gaming as well as more geeky stuff such as Architecture, Big Data, Data Visualization, Industrial Design, TED, Formula 1 , and most recently Volvo Ocean & Americas Cup Racing.
