Free In-Memory Column Store Workshop with Maria Colgan

I am very proud to be able to announce a free workshop on Friday the 13th March, about the new Database In-Memory Column Store functionality with Maria Colgan in The Netherlands. Maria, a very gifted presenter and lately very often the keynote speaker on mayor conferences around the world, agreed to “hop over” in between her scheduled conference dates, to give a workshop in the Netherlands.


At Oracle Open World last year, Oracle announced the availability of the Oracle Database In-Memory option, a solution for accelerating database-driven business decision-making to real-time. Unlike specialized In-Memory Database approaches that are restricted to particular workloads or applications, Oracle Database 12c leverages a new in-memory column store format to speed up any analytic workload. But how does it work and what steps do you need to take to successfully implement Oracle Database In-Memory in your environment?

This workshop explains in detail how Oracle Database In-Memory works and will demonstrate just how much performance improvements you can expect. We will also discuss how it integrates with Oracle’s existing performance features, including the Optimizer, indexes, materialized views, and the Exadata platform. We will also show you what are the best places to take advantage of this new technology.
