« Return to event

Time: 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Track: Track 1

SQL is a very powerful language and we have been using it for almost 40 years to process our data. Did you know that SQL comes with many powerful techniques for analysing your data? Did you know that you can analyse data outside the database using SQL? Using the new Oracle Big Data SQL we can now analyse our data that is stored in our Database, in Hadoop and NoSQL all at the same time. This presentation looks at the capabilities in Oracle Database that allows us to work with all of your data. SQL is really the unified language for processing all your data allowing us to analyze, process, run machine learning and protect all our data using SQL. You too can become a SQL super hero, if we just use the full power of SQL.
