Integrating Raspberry Pi Sensors with Data Visualization
Justin Baker , Oracle Corporation
When: Jun 28, 2017, Wednesday Session 12 , 9:45 am - 10:45 am
Room: Magnolia
Topic: Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics - Subtopic: Oracle Data Visualization

The introduction of IoT devices such as the Raspberry Pi and services such as IFTTT have disrupted whole industries overnight and spawned an army of machines gathering sensor data and home automation capabilities to better our lives for a fraction of the cost before. In this session, we will explore how integrating IoT device sensor data with Oracle Data Visualization and IFTTT can help us hold both Mother Nature and our ISPs accountable in this new disruptive landscape.

A Lambda Architecture in the Cloud: A Kscope17 Case Study
Stewart Bryson , Red Pill Analytics
Co-presenter(s): Kevin McGinley, Red Pill Analytics
When: Jun 27, 2017, Tuesday Session 8 , 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Room: Grand Oaks H
Topic: Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics - Subtopic: Other Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics

A Lambda architecture enables data-driven organizations by simultaneously providing batch and speed processing layers to satisfy the overall appetite for analytics and reporting. But building a Lambda architecture is not easy, usually requiring all of the following: a universal ingestion layer, an immutable data store as a system of record, one or more data processing layers that can satisfy batch and speed requirements, and a serving layer that enables data-driven decision making.

In this session, we’ll demonstrate how cloud platforms can supercharge the delivery of a capable Lambda architecture. Our case study will be the IoT data generated by Kscope17 attendees, including the beacon from their badges, as well as other devices capturing the results of live polling.

Oracle R Enterprise and Data Visualization: Combining Their Power Leads to New Possibilities
Holger Friedrich , sumIT AG
When: Jun 28, 2017, Wednesday Session 16 , 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm
Room: Grand Oaks E/F
Topic: Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics - Subtopic: Other Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics

In advanced analytics, the R language with its different distributions became the de facto standard in recent years. In visualization, tools such as Oracle Data Visualization, QlikView, and Tableau for data exploration and flexible analyses are spreading rapidly. However, using data viz tools interactively on top of advanced analytics such as R is often hard because either they lack integration or the performance of R installations is just not good enough for interactive analyses or computation of massive data sets on a regular, e.g. nightly, or even an ad hoc basis. This problem can be solved by combining the use of Oracle Data Visualization (Data Viz) and Oracle R Enterprise (ORE). While ORE can run directly on large database servers, making full use of their massive computational power and parallel execution of R code, Data Viz offers immediate access to analytic results and can string them together with all sorts of other data available for exploration and further analysis. This talk explains the concept and advantages of using ORE and Data Viz in combination. Live demonstrations will illustrate the solution. Attend to get inspirations for solutions to your own business challenges and projects.

Topic: Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics - Subtopic: Oracle Data Visualization

Many analysts within finance are used to manipulating spreadsheets and waiting for enhancements to Essbase cubes to produce reports that need to be shared with their management or peers. This session will demonstrate how all analysts within finance can get immediate value from Oracle Data Visualization (DV) and decrease their reliance on overly complex spreadsheets. From its ability to connect to many different kinds of data sources, wrangle multiple data sources into a usable format, and visualize insights that would be otherwise hard to see in a table, Oracle DV provides analysts an extra layer of functionality they can easily learn and use without IT intervention.

Room: Magnolia
Topic: Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics - Subtopic: R and Oracle Data Mining

Everyone knows they should be integrating data mining and predictive analytics, but it can be challenging to discuss the merits of a project before team members share a common understanding of data science and predictive analytics. We will share a detailed outline of the best practice methodology for getting clients started with Oracle Data Mining and Oracle R Enterprise, how we develop that common understanding using "live" software, and how to facilitate brainstorming sessions to identify projects with the highest ROIs. We'll share excerpts from our three-day start up process to create a common set of skills and knowledge through hands-on learning with live software and complemented by expert guidance for placing tools and algorithms within a broader analytics context. We’ll help you stand up instances in the cloud, do data science projects on your data, show you how to use Oracle Data Mining and Oracle R, and help you pick the right starting point for your organization.

Data Stories: Predicting Asset Prices with Oracle Data Visualization Desktop, Data Collection, and R
Jerry Ward , Viscosity North America
Co-presenter(s): Kevin McNelis, Nutrabolt Life Sciences

Topic: Data Visualization & Advanced Analytics - Subtopic: R and Oracle Data Mining

Data has a story to tell, and if told correctly, data can predict the future. In this session we aim to predict the future value of any asset through storytelling. We illustrate this with an intriguing tale using a technique that you can apply to the purchase or sale of your next car, boat, home, or airplane. We use a popular business aircraft as an example to tell this story. You will learn how you can quickly and easily: scrape the data from a market website, use Oracle Data Visualization desktop to identify the price drivers of this market, and the final result into a simple R statement that will predicts the future!
