OOW2014 quickies

Notes I made during the 2014 Oracle Open World conference in S.F.

    • In Memory with columnar representation
    • SIMD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIMD) single instruction multiple data
      •  vektor data processing!
      • I’d like to find a way to profit from those SIMD instructions using Pl/sql collections. Either in a Oracle Standard Edition 12c or maybe already in 11g. Have to read up a bit on it.
