Jeff's Bio

I’m currently a Product Manager for Oracle, working on the SQL Developer team. My true passion lies in helping people maximize their productivity and retain sanity while working with database development and administration tools. I am a database productivity and tools advocate. My goal is to help you save time when working with Oracle Database. If I make you laugh here and there, then that’s nice too.

More details on the Oracle Database In-Memory Option topic

Oracle recently announced the upcoming availability of the Oracle Database In-Memory option, a solution for accelerating database-driven business decision-making to real-time. Unlike specialized In-Memory Databases approaches that are restricted to particular workloads or applications, Oracle Database 12c leverages a new in-memory column store format to speed up analytic and OLTP workloads.

This session 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 an existing Oracle environment.

Maria's Bio

Maria Colgan is a master product manager at Oracle Corporation and has been with the company since version 7.3 was released in 1996. Maria's core responsibility is the Oracle Database In-Memory Option. Based on Maria's extensive experience in Oracle's Server Technology Performance Group - where she conducted competitive customer benchmarks and tuning sessions - Maria creates material and lectures on the Oracle Database In-Memory Option and the best practices for incorporating it into Oracle environments. She is also a contributing author to the Oracle Optimizer blog and the new Oracle Database In-Memory blog
