There's so much to learn at Oracle OpenWorld because it provides more educational and networking opportunities than any other conference dedicated to Oracle business and technology users.
What to expect at OOW 2013 - We will be announcing a wide range of continuous innovations from query optimization and partitioning to advanced analytics, Oracle Exadata and more. All these features make Oracle Database the world's most popular database for data warehousing. Join Oracle experts as we dive deep into the latest generation of database innovations for analyzing enterprise data and diverse big data streams to derive real business value from your data warehouse. You will also learn data warehouse best practices and hear from customers consolidating business analysis onto a common scalable platform. Hands-on labs for both beginners and experts give you the chance to try some of these innovative data warehouse technologies first-hand.
