What's new in 12.2: CELLMEMORY Part 3

The Cellmemory Stats in RDBMS 

The RDBMS stats for Cellmemory are designed to closely follow the pattern used by the Inmemory stats 

Query Stats 

 Each column in each one MB of disk blocks will be rewritten into one IMC format Column CU in flash and a set of Column CUs comprise an overall Compression Unit so these stats reflect the number of 1 MB rewrites that were processed (not the number of column CUs).

  1. “cellmemory IM scan CUs processed for query”
    – #1 MB chuncks scanned in MEMCOMPRESS FOR QUERY format
  2. “cellmemory IM scan CUs processed for capacity”
    – #1 MB chuncks scanned in MEMCOMPRESS FOR CAPACITY format
  3. “cellmemory IM scan CUs processed no memcompress”
    – #1 MB chuncks scanned in NO CELLMEMORY format (12.1.0.2 format)

Load Stats

  1. “cellmemory IM load CUs for query”
    – #1 MB chunks successfully rewritten from 12.1.0.2 to MEMCOMPRESS FOR QUERY format  
  2. “cellmemory IM load CUs for capacity”
    – #1 MB chunks successfully rewritten from 12.1.0.2 to MEMCOMPRESS FOR CAPACITY format
  3. “cellmemory IM load CUs no memcompress”
    – #1 MB chunks successfully rewritten into 12.1.0.2 format

Before a rewrite happens a routine is called that looks through the blocks in the 1 MB chunk and determines if it is eligible for write. Reasons it may not be include transactional metadata from the commit cache, the presence of blocks formats that can’t be rewitten (although this list is getting smaller with each rpm), and the amount of space the rewrite will take up.

A rewrite into 12.1.0.2 format must fit in the original 1 MB of flash cache. An IMC format rewrite is not permitted to exceed 8 MB. This limit is highly unlikely to be reached by MEMCOMPRESS FOR CAPACITY but could be reached when trying to rewrite HCC blocks with much greater than 8X original compression capacity into MEMCOMPRESS FOR QUERY format. This is one reason that the default is FOR CAPACITY.

  1. “cellmemory IM scan CUs rejected for query”
    – #1 MB chunks that could not be rewritten into MEMCOMPRESS FOR QUERY for whatever reason
  2. “cellmemory IM scan CUs rejected for capacity
    – #1 MB chunks that could not be rewritten into MEMCOMPRESS FOR CAPACITY for whatever reason
  3. “cellmemory IM scan CUs rejected no memcompress”
    – #1 MB chunks that could not even be rewritten into 12.1.0.2 format for whatever reason

McGraw Hills Journey to Oracle Public Cloud

Chandan Ghosh describes McGraw Hills’ journey to the cloud and why Oracle’s Integrated Cloud platform with high performance, massive scalability, and reduced costs, was the best option for moving their entire IT footprint to the Oracle Cloud.

McGraw Hill has been experiencing rapid grow in their digital educational subscriptions and needed a way to speed up their delivery model.  Find out how they were able to set up environments in only a few hours versus the 30 days it used to take.  With the simplicity of Oracle Cloud, they are also able to keep senior IT staff focused on value added work like creating new products instead of maintenance and administrative tasks. All this translates to a better bottom line and an improved experience for their customer…the modern digitally connected student.

Twitter Chat: Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?

On Thursday,
April 20th at 10:00 am PT, @oraclewebcenter
and the Content and Experience Cloud team will be hosting a live Twitter Chat
on “Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?” to explore how relevant web content
management is with the introduction of decoupled/headless content management
systems.

Much like a live panel discussion,
just a bit more free-form, Twitter Chats are concise live conversations on
Twitter on pre-determined topics at a set date and time. While the panelists
discuss, comment and tweet about the topic, other ‘tweeters’ interested in this
topic (or those who are following us on Twitter) can follow along, raise a
question, provide feedback or commentary or just chime in as they feel. We will
be hosting the Twitter Chat @oraclewebcenter
that has over 26K followers, so it should be an exciting discussion with good
visibility. And we will then archive the conversation feed on our Digital Experience Platform blog for
anyone to see and reference.

As a valued
customer, we would like to invite you to participate in the live discussion. If
you/your peers and/or colleagues have an active Twitter handle and are interested
in participating, will you please confirm by sending an RSVP to kellsey.ruppel@oracle.com?

Additional
details for how the Twitter Chat will work can be found below.

If you aren’t
familiar with what a Twitter Chat is, a Twitter Chat is where a group of
Twitter users meet at a pre-determined time to discuss a certain topic, using a
designated hashtag (#) for each tweet contributed. A host or moderator will
pose questions (designated with Q1, Q2…) to prompt responses from participants
(using A1, A2…) and encourage interaction among the group. Chats typically last
an hour. At the most basic level, you can participate in a Twitter chat simply
by entering the hashtag into a Twitter search and interacting with people
there. But we would encourage you to use Tweetchat
or another tool to organize and filter tweets into a stream for easier
conversing. One of the major benefits of using Tweetchat is that it
automatically adds the hashtag to your tweet, which can save you lots of
time—Twitter Chats move fast! It also refreshes in real time.

Here are some
basic instructions to participate in the Twitter Chat:

1. At
the scheduled chat time, log onto www.tweetchat.com,
or whatever other tweet chat tool you like, using your Twitter name and
password. Enter the hashtag for the chat at the top of the screen (e.g. we are
using #contentdglt for this Twitter Chat)

2. Let
your followers know you will be participating in a chat, then introduce
yourself or wait for the chat to begin. The moderator (@oraclewebcenter) will start the conversation
by asking a question. Here’s an example: Q1 Why is headless CMS gaining
popularity? #contentdgtl

3. When
you answer questions make sure you indicate which question you are answering.
For example: A1 This model allows breakthrough user experiences & gives
developers great flexibility to innovate #contentdgtl

4. Remember
to add the chat hashtag (e.g. #contentdgtl) to the end of your tweets.

5. Don’t
be afraid to add your thoughts to the topic, ask follow-up questions, observe
or just “retweet” what others saying. As long as your questions are on topic,
they are welcome during the Twitter Chat.

We are so
excited to have you participate in this Twitter Chat!

· Topic:
Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?

· Date:
Thursday, April 20

· Time:
10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET

· Hashtag:
#contentdgtl

Host: @oraclewebcenter

How the World Is Changing, and How IoT Can Change the World

In 2016, the world population surpassed 7.3 billion, meaning the number of people on Earth has doubled in the past 45 years. Furthermore, there’s no end insight to this rapid growth. In fact, it has been calculated that the population is increasing by more than 140 people every minute.

This exploding population creates challenges from the perspectives of sustainability and urbanization:

  • The world’s population is outgrowing the available natural resources. If, as predicted, the global population reaches 9.6 billion by 2050, we would, per United Nations figures, require the equivalent of almost three planets to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles.
  • Global population is migrating to urban areas, creating a strain on infrastructure. The United Nations predicts that by 2030, 60% of the world population will live in urban areas. In 2000, this number was only 47%. Nearly 180,000 people are added to the urban population each day.

These two facts alone suggest we must innovate to leverage our natural resources in a more sustainable way, and in many cases, do more with less.

IoT Revolutionizes Farming

In a recent story, SAP and Stara: IoT’s New Constellation of Stars, Judith Magyar explains how tractors can now leverage sensors to capture real-time data and optimize farm management and operations.

By leveraging data analytic capabilities, farmers can:

  • Gain better insights to make more sound decisions
  • Produce more high-quality crops per acre
  • Support sustainable agricultural practices that respect the environment

This is just one example of how the Internet of Things (IoT) can help balance supply and demand for the world’s natural resources to help maximize production, reduce environmental impact, and remediate problems faster.

Check out this video to learn more about how IoT is revolutionizing the farming industry:

Argentina Modernizes Its Capital City with IoT

In another recent article, Buenos Aires Preserves Old Charm by Becoming a Smart City, Christine Donato explains how the Argentinian capital is leveraging IoT solutions to mitigate some of the challenges of a growing urban area.

This includes:

  • Managing and responding to the 30,000 complaints the city receives each month by leveraging real-time data and social media insight
  • Reducing consumption and keeping the city illuminated and safe by converting 91,000 public street lights to modern LED technology, and using real-time insights to quickly address power outages, broken lights, and vandalism
  • Automating maintenance on 1,400 kilometers of drainage pipes to execute cleaning and maintenance at maximum capacity and predict potential flooding

Check out this video to learn more about how Buenos Aires is illuminating the city in a more sustainable way:

These are just two examples of how organizations are leveraging IoT to change the world. For more on these stories and many others, attend the SAP Leonardo Live – IoT for Business event on July 11 and 12 in Frankfurt, Germany. Visit this website for additional details.

Power2XLead: Women Leaders at SAP Germany

Last year, SAP Germany launched the Power2XLead program for aspiring female leaders. Here, three participants talk about their experiences.

When it comes to the number of women in management, SAP has already achieved a lot. In 2011, the figure was 18% and with the latest result of 24.5%, the company is fast approaching its own global target for 2017 – for women to hold 25% of managerial positions. But the figures show there is still room for improvement in Germany.


Women in Management at SAP

  • 2016: 24.5% female managers for SAP global
  • 2016: 16.6% female managers at SAP Deutschland
  • Global target 2017:  25% female managers

For this reason, SAP Germany decided to sponsor the Power2XLead program and make use of the huge potential of the future generation of female managers.

“Through the Power2XLead program, we have created a pool of aspiring female leaders, and already five of our participants have taken on a managerial position,” reports Cawa Younosi, HR director for Germany, who first identified this need, and then launched the program together with Harry Thomsen, managing director for SAP Deutschland, in October 2016.

The program received a very positive response from all 34 participants. Here, three of them talk about what motivated them to get involved and what they have gained from the program. One of the most significant insights was having confidence in yourself, and in your own performance. Marielle Ehrmann, Iris Müller, and Gabriele Görtz discuss their experiences and share some tips.

“Equal opportunities means that everyone is treated the same.”

Marielle Ehrmann

It was curiosity that first prompted Marielle to apply for the Power2XLead program, yet becoming a manager after completing the program was not a necessary outcome for her.

“I wanted to know how SAP is actively working to enhance women’s careers, and how the concept of equal opportunities, which sounds simple in theory, is actually being implemented.” Marielle’s conclusion: “Equal opportunities means that everyone is treated the same. And this doesn’t mean that women should suddenly receive preferential treatment. No one wants to be known as a quota woman. We want to be given a managerial position because we are the best possible candidate.”

Now an executive director in Integrated Quality & Services, Marielle experienced her greatest light-bulb moment when management coach Melissa Lamson spoke to the women at the kick-off event: “If you really want something, just go out and get it. It’s never going to come to you unless you ask for it.”

Marielle availed herself to the work-related training courses, workshops, and presentations to get to know female colleagues from various other departments, and put aside her uncertainties: “Their inhibitions about interacting with managers radically reduced by the end of the course. You could really see a difference.”

For colleagues looking to take on a managerial position, Marielle has the following advice: “Choose your boss wisely – find someone who will always trust you 10 percent more than you trust yourself. Someone who will give you freedom to realize your own ideas, who challenges you, but also gives you support.”

 “Taking on a management role doesn’t have to be a life-changing decision.”

Iris Müller

Five years ago, Iris was managing a team of 12 people in Global Mobility. Following the birth of her son in 2014, she took on an 80 percent part-time expert role. After hearing about the Power2XLead program it was clear for her that her next career step would be another managerial position.

“Taking on a management role doesn’t have to be a life-changing decision,” says Iris. “Many women shy away from new, uncertain challenges. They worry about failing. We should have more confidence in ourselves. Modesty isn’t going to get you anywhere.”

“We were a real mixed bunch,” said Iris, “All with unique characteristics and individualities, yet we still shared the same vision: To become managers.” Many roads lead to Rome.

“You can be a mum and pursue your career goals.”

A jam-packed day is nothing new for Gabriele Görtz, mother of three sons and, as of late, manager of a 12-member team within partner organization for SAP Deutschland. Gabriele is a pioneer of the part-time leadership concept (75 percent), and prepared for her managerial position by successfully completing the Power2XLead program.

“I lead my team according to the mantra ‘walk the talk.’ If you have a vision, you also have to live it. In my capacity as coach to my employees, I want to give them the opportunity to shine.” For Gabriele, this is the definition of effective management. “Management requires time, and time is always a critical factor, particularly for those who work part time. As a manager, I have time consciously take time for my employees in the same way I take time for my family.”

Gabriele Görtz

One important discovery that Gabriele Görtz made at Power2XLead is the importance of shaping your own career path, and having the confidence to take control. Another thing is particularly important for Gabriele: “I make a conscious effort to enjoy my own private time without constantly checking my phone. I make time for my family every day, and I enjoy it.”

Her advice to all mothers is therefore: “Dare to go your own way. No one can shape your career for you, it’s down to you. Always keep your eyes and ears open.”

“Aspiring Leaders” Program to Follow

Having successfully completing the German Power2XLead program on January 30, five of the 34 participants have already made it to management level. The successful initiative is also set to be rolled out internationally, including in India. And the follow-up program “Aspiring Leaders” is already set for launch in Germany, and will also cater to male employees who aspire to become managers.

The Big Bot Wave

Although artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for decades, of late a new wave of “.ai” is sweeping the technology world. This time around, it has manifested in the form of bots.

Tech giants of Silicon Valley have ventured into this space, either by building bots themselves — such as Cortana, Siri, or Alexa — and/or by coming up with bot-building platforms like Wit.ai or API.ai. Other smaller companies and startups were also quick to jump on this bandwagon, resulting in an overflowing “bot landscape” in the otherwise human-dominated world.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg! On Facebook Messenger alone there have been approximately 35,000 bots built in last six months — news bots, weather bots, and scheduling bots, to name just a few.

The need to appeal to millennials who grew up with texting as the primary mode of communication and the popularity of messaging channels, such as Facebook Messenger, SMS, WhatsApp, and Slack, have paved way for the emergence of chatbots. Chatbots allow users to simply text their needs and be responded to. Having a personal connection with their customers in the channel of their choice has created a huge business need for chatbots in the enterprise sector. And the DIY-no-coding-needed bot platforms and several custom bot development startups are trying to fulfil the prophecy of “be where your customers are.”

The Business Need

Some say  bots are the apps of the future, while others disagree. However, the important question to ask at this point is “Are these bots solving any core business pain points in the best possible way?”

Sadly, the answer is more of a no than a yes. Critics say that the current bots are just a bot-ified version of existing apps or fun toys at best. Only bots that address this question effectively will succeed, just like apps or pretty much any other software solution

The best use cases for bots are the ones where there is a real need for communicating with a human and therefore a preference for getting things done in natural language or at least in a natural “flow.” It is essential to first carve out a tightly defined use case that fits this criteria, rather than trying to force-fit an existing app into a bot. Of course, bot design comes later which includes building conversational flowcharts (or equivalent representations) of typical business flows, followed by an understanding of what things are best done via rich UI elements vs. plain text.

Are Banks Ready for Bots?

My decade-long career in the banking sector naturally makes me curious about how bots are transforming this industry. A super-intelligent, highly-personalized bot that manages your finances, credit card expenses, mortgage payments, tuition fees, medical bills, and savings while simultaneously optimizing your investment portfolio based on market trends may seem to be a fantasy.

Yet many fintech startups and some future-looking banks have started scratching the surface of the botiverse. One such startup is Kasisto, whose consumer banking bot MyKAI provides a natural language interface to all your bank and credit card accounts. You can ask the bot about your expenditures in various categories (food, entertainment, etc.) or even ask it to send money to your friends via Venmo. There are also several other personal finance bots available now like Trim, Abe, and Penny.

As recent articles suggest, banks are also looking for new ways to communicate and serve their customers better. For example, the Amex bot enables you to connect your Amex account to Facebook Messenger to receive notifications related to purchases, card benefits, promotions, etc.

Although these are nice use cases, they do not solve one of the most critical pain points that banks have – customer service. For example, if you want to interact with your bank to make a credit card or loan payment, you would still need to go via one of the traditional routes – app, website, interactive voice response (IVR), or a call to the customer support number. IVR systems are clunky and impersonal, and users often get lost in their complex labyrinth of button-navigated options. Phone calls for such mundane tasks are irritating for customers due to long wait times and are often quite expensive for the businesses to support.

Although apps and websites provide an asynchronous channel for customers, they are often expensive to build, maintain and customize across various platforms (iOS vs. android vs. windows), browsers, and form factors. Also, with ever-increasing number of apps, the precious real estate of your phone starts getting cluttered and diminished.

A bot simplifies a lot of this. Bots seamlessly integrate within existing popular channels of communications using simple APIs, thus providing the “build-once-deploy-everywhere” advantage. The UI is relatively simple with a few basic components like choice menus, carousels, and URLs., making them easily adaptable for various organizations in an industry. The main challenge in bot building is conversation design and understanding and responding in natural language, which, in general is a hard problem in the areas of natural language processing (NLP), AI, and machine learning.

So how do you get around this challenge? The key is to first identify common, yet simple, use cases that can be solved by a bot in a step-by-step fashion. For example, the most commonly performed operations during a loan lifecycle are generating monthly statements, instalment/lump-sum payments, loan payoffs, or requests for extensions. Each of these tasks can be clearly explained using a simple step-by-step process without much customization (imagine the steps involved in paying your credit card bill).

So, the first version of the bot can be purely menu driven for addressing these frequent use cases. More complicated processes like loan origination, refinancing, or renewal, that often need human involvement, can be tackled later. Also, the bot can be made smarter progressively, by adding simple layers of NLP, for example, understanding dates/times or simple intents entered via free text.

How Can SAP Support the Bot Wave?

With enterprise offerings in many domains, SAP has robust backend systems with feature sets that address essential business process flows. There are existing, standard, secure enterprise services (APIs) for most processes, which can be used to build bots very quickly. For example, a lending bot that lets consumers perform most common operations via a messaging channel of their choice could be extremely lucrative to small financial organizations that are ready to invest in a core banking backend system but do not have a mobile app to integrate it with, or are looking for ways to improve customer interaction.

In essence, the rich heritage of enterprise backend applications that SAP offers coupled with the right business use case will drive the success for enterprise bots.

All in all, 2016 can be described as the year of bot emergence, and recent trends show that moving forward, there will be considerably more involvement of bots in our daily lives.  Seventy percent of American consumers say they prefer using chatbots to interact with companies for common interactions over other channels. So, bots and companies that cater to such needs will gain and flourish.

Bottling Innovation at Krones AG

Most of us probably don’t think too much about how that bottle of celebratory bubbly or interesting new microbrew actually came to be outside of the fermentation process itself, but a lot goes into keeping the beverage industry flowing.

Automation of bottling and ease of vendor ordering are critical to keeping us all well hydrated, and digital solutions are now a big part of traditional manufacturing.

One fourth of the world’s bottles are filled on lines produced by Krones AG. Everything from beer to ketchup, sparkling wine to perfume, and water to soft drinks, come off production lines that Krones AG had a hand in. Founded in Germany in 1951 as a semi-automatic labeling production, Krones AG has grown over the years and now partners with its customers on mechanical engineering, process technology, microbiology, and IT. The company’s machinery goes from filling, labeling, and packing bottles and cans, to then taking back plastic bottles (PET) and processing them for reuse.

Krones AG now has operations internationally in locations such as South Africa, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, and multiple sites in South America. But multiple global subsidiaries can produce operational difficulties. With subsidiaries running on diverse ERP platforms, it became apparent that its intercompany integration was too time consuming. The company needed a solution that was easy to implement, and more importantly, would integrate all its businesses.

Enter SAP Business One

Krones AG elected to go with SAP Business One. In a recent video about its success, Anna Maria Gunther, Commercial Applications CRM and Lifecycle Service, Krones AG, explained that the SAP Business One decision was simple. It is easy to learn and quick to implement, but still provides a full range of functionality. That made it a cost effective solution. Its financial reporting has gone from days at month end, to just the push of a button.

By taking this harmonized approach, Krones AG is streamlining all of its subsidiaries and synchronizing material data and receipts with its headquarters. This seamless integration at the warehouse and online, enables its ecommerce presence. In addition, this was accomplished without an IT investment from headquarters.

Easy Shopping for Commercial Customers

Krones AG has over 1.7 million products to offer its commercial customers. And its customers expect to order items with the same level of ease they have ordering products from any online store in their personal lives. With SAP Hybris Commerce, Krones AG was able to deliver such a user experience:


“In the Krones online store, commercial customers receive the same easy shopping experience that they expect from other online retailers like Amazon – even though a single machine can comprise of up to six million separate parts.”

— Bernd Baldauf, Head of eBusiness, Krones AG


And that easy-to-use, accurate online presence has led to an increase in sales orders. Keeping its customers happy and well stocked using an easy-to-use digital solution is just good business.

So the next time you pick up a soft drink or a bottle of water, think about how we take for granted the availability of that great product. There is so much innovation going into the production of consumer products and Krones AG is adapting its business for the future. The company embraces the concept that a business cannot simply be ‘live’ because that implies that they are standing still. Krones AG has simplified its approach to integrating subsidiaries and have reduced the effort to bring goods to customers.

I’ll drink to that!

SAP Promotes Proven Leaders to Strengthen the Company

WALLDORFSAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced newly expanded responsibilities of key executives. Robert Enslin and Bernd Leukert will shift and expand their portfolios as members of the Executive Board of SAP SE. The Supervisory Board of SAP SE has named Adaire Fox-Martin and Jennifer Morgan to the Executive Board.

The moves underscore SAP’s commitment to customers’ ongoing digital transformation and its effort to foster top talent.

“I am pleased that executives such as Rob, Bernd, Adaire and Jen are stepping into bigger leadership roles to transform the way we drive innovations with our customers,” said Hasso Plattner, chairman of the Supervisory Board.

In addition, two new leadership assignments were announced for current EMEA President Franck Cohen and SAP Cloud Platform President Bjoern Goerke. Cohen will become chief commercial officer and Goerke chief technology officer.

“We have always considered it a privilege to nurture careers and leaders,” said Bill McDermott, CEO and member of the Executive Board. “SAP is a company focused on innovation, scale and growth. I’m proud of this leadership team and know they are poised to keep SAP on the rise.”

The Supervisory Board has asked Enslin, head of Global Customer Operations, to be president of the new Cloud Business Group. He will oversee SAP Ariba, SAP Fieldglass, Concur, SAP SuccessFactors, and SAP Hybris solutions as well as the SMB Solutions Group organization. Leukert, head of Products & Innovation at SAP, will expand his portfolio to accelerate SAP’s platform and digital transformation strategy. Enslin and Leukert will jointly lead key growth businesses at SAP, ensuring that development teams and customer-facing teams are in lockstep with one another from the design thinking and innovation process to customer-facing initiatives.

With Enslin’s increased focus on cloud businesses at SAP, Fox-Martin and Morgan will ascend to the co-presidency of Global Customer Operations, overseeing all SAP regions and building on their success in the Asia-Pacific-Japan region and North America, respectively. Fox-Martin will oversee EMEA and Greater China. Morgan will oversee the Americas and Asia-Pacific-Japan regions. As chief commercial officer, Cohen will lead SAP’s channel business as well as assume responsibility for all sales processes and go-to-market initiatives across SAP. As CTO, Goerke will advance the company’s technology strategy and serve as a key external spokesperson.

Fox-Martin (left), Morgan (right)

All changes will be effective May 1, 2017.

Steve Singh, president of Business Networks and Applications, will leave SAP SE at the end of this month. Singh collaborated closely with Enslin, and together they transitioned Concur solutions into the SAP product family. Singh built a strong foundation for business networks at SAP and plans to focus on other entrepreneurial interests outside of SAP.

“Steve Singh’s character and entrepreneurial spirit are greatly admired around the world,” McDermott said. “When SAP acquired Concur Technologies, we knew Steve would play a significant role in strengthening the SAP cloud portfolio. We also knew he would eventually go back to his start-up roots. We could not be more grateful for everything Steve has done.”

SAP will publish its financial results for the first quarter as planned on April 25, 2017.
