Graphing Grifters: Identify & Display Patterns of Corruption With Oracle Graph Studio by Jim Czuprynski

Ever wonder how your bank knows when to text you when a potentially fraudulent transaction appears on its radar?

It’s simple if you know how to apply the right algorithms to financial transactions so that outliers become readily apparent.

These techniques can be applied to just about any anomalous behavior, and property graph technology helps make outliers stand out dramatically.

Through presentations and online demonstrations, this session will:
• Show how to use appropriate ML algorithms already built into Oracle Database to uncover anomalous patterns
• Demonstrate Oracle Graph Studio’s capabilities to identify and display outliers more clearly
• Introduce the basic concepts of PGQL (Property Graph Query Language) to look at tabular data in completely new way

Practical training: How to get off the hamster wheel of Oracle Cloud quarterly updates by Peter Earnshaw and Peter Crew

One of the key challenges Oracle Cloud customers have is keeping pace with the quarterly upgrade schedule for Oracle Cloud applications. 

A typical upgrade process involves several routine tasks, such as: 

Reviewing upcoming changes and assessing the potential impact on users and existing processes 

Performing UAT cycles in a sandbox environment, in preparation for the production rollout 

Preparing and disseminating documentation and other self-help materials in case of significant UI or process changes 

Assessing the impact on user productivity of issues introduced by the upgrade, to adequately allocate IT and other resources towards their resolution 

Finally, being able to engage a fast response team to deal with such issue, in orders to minimize their impact on business 

The team tasked with managing this process can be easily overwhelmed, given that these upgrade cycles happen so frequently. 

In this webinar Knoa and our guest presenter, Peter Crew the CTO of Magia Solutions, will discuss some practical tips and tools that can help you effectively prepare for and deal with these upgrades, making your life easier, helping you deliver a better quality of service to your business stakeholders: the actual end users – your employees.

Securing your mission critical systems running Oracle from cyber attacks by Trichy Premkumar

Until recently, organizations have focused on trying to prevent cyberattacks, which come primarily from hacking and malware. However, the likelihood that all malware will be discovered before harm is done is slim, particularly for slow-moving and sophisticated attacks. This difficulty of detecting malware early gives hackers time to orchestrate attacks ranging from extortion to outright destruction of mission-critical systems. Such cyberattacks can cripple an organization, leading to revenue loss, negative publicity, and lasting customer distrust. In this session we will review how Oracle data protection can be simplified, secured and enhanced to include comprehensive cyber recovery protection.
