What does Digital Disruption Mean to the Oracle Ecosystem? with Debra Lilley
Limited Capacity seats available

Disruption is not just for the consumer, it is also for the provider. Look at how the big vendors are clambering for market share of cloud. There is no doubt cloud is here, now, the just talking about it is over; the move to cloud marches quickly on. Cloud is not just about hosting, and I believe there is a lot of deliberate confusion and clever use of words from all the vendors, and each have their own definition of what makes a ‘real’ cloud, but what is true to all, is that cloud matters.

So if we accept that this change is here, what does it mean to you? One question I get asked a lot by technical people is “what does this mean to my job? I’m a DBA / Developer in an organization supporting EBS / PeopleSoft etc. and we are thinking of moving to Cloud. Does it mean I won’t have a job?” The answer is, as Tom would say, “it depends.”

This presentation will explore what Digital Disruption means to the Oracle Eco-system, Their product, the way they work, Partners, Professionals and Customers and of course user groups.

Oracle Indexes Q&A with Richard Foote
Limited Capacity seats available

Indexes are fundamental to every Oracle database and are crucial for optimal performance. However, there’s often much misconception and misunderstanding regarding how Oracle database indexes function and should be maintained.

Things can become even more confusing when one considers new indexing capabilities introduced with the Oracle 12c Database, Oracle engineered solutions such as Exadata and new database options such as the In-Memory Database option.

This is a wonderful opportunity to both learn and ask index related questions in an open forum directly to Richard Foote, a highly-respected Oracle indexing expert, well known for his Oracle Indexing blog and many public presentations and seminars on this subject.

Troubleshooting - "File X needs more recovery” with Anton Els
Limited Capacity seats available

Disaster strikes - you have to activate your standby database, or maybe you are busy performing a restore from a backup, and you get the dreaded “File 1 needs more recovery to be consistent” or “ File 1 was not restored from a sufficiently old backup”... error numbers are shown with "horror" -type messages - ORA-01194, ORA-01547, ORA-01152; but what now. What does this mean and can you recover past, or from this. In this session we will review these scenarios in a bit more detail and help you understand what these mean and what the next possible steps are.

PaaS4SaaS the Options with Debra Lilley
Limited Capacity seats available

Oracle’s Cloud Applications take away the need for a data centre but what happens if you need an extension that cannot be done at SaaS level? The good thing is that Fusion Architecture Principles means extensions are not a customization as we are used to, but something that sits alongside and integrated in the same way as co-existence with traditional apps. This session looks at a Proof of Concept, proving your systems integrator can become an ISV adding value to Cloud Applications and also gives the customer the same UX as with Oracle’s Cloud Apps.

We are also exploring the recently announced Application Builder Cloud Service and what this adds to the options.

Database Performance Diagnostics: How to correctly use AWR Reports with Richard Foote
Limited Capacity seats available

I often get called in by customers to determine and address the root cause of database performance issues. Depending on the issue, a request for a simple Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) report is often sufficient to accurately diagnose the root problem.

In this session, I discuss how to best read an AWR report to quickly go to the most relevant sections that detail any specific issues. I also discuss a general tuning and diagnostic methodology that ensures you can quickly determine whether an AWR report will be sufficient and how to accurately and consistently use the AWR report to pinpoint and determine root causes for global database performance issues.

Making Cloud Computing work for You and Your Employer with John Jay King
Limited Capacity seats available

Cloud Computing has lots of “buzz” this year and is the thrust of one of Oracle’s biggest marketing pushes ever. So, what is cloud computing? Why do I care about IaaS, PaaS, and/or SaaS? How can I use Cloud Computing to improve my organization’s applications? Participants in this session will learn that Cloud computing is much more than just a new face on the same-old-thing. Exciting business benefits are made possible by the features of Cloud computing: broad network access, resource pooling, elasticity, metered charging, and self-service. Oracle’s Cloud offerings provide a single-vendor solution to what is potentially a silo-like multi-vendor approach. Learn how to leverage the Cloud to improve your employer’s applications and take them into the future.

RMAN the Pocket Knife of a DBA with Anton Els
Limited Capacity seats available

Recover Manager; or RMAN as most know it, is one of the most important utilities every DBA should be familiar with. In earlier releases it is fair to say that occasionally it did create havoc and some DBA's were afraid to use it. But RMAN has come a long way and has been one of the most improved utilities over the years.
Is it too complex? “Backup database” - does not look to complex does it? Sometimes we the DBA’s complicate matters by writing long and elaborate scripts when in most environments it is not needed. (Although in some cases there are good reasons for this).
You might be new to the world of being a DBA; or maybe you already are a hardcore DBA with years of experience, so let’s take a look at Backup and Recovery using RMAN including some of the excellent new features introduced in 12c.

Many DBA's are scared of RMAN, yet with a few commands in your arsenal you can protect your database environment and start the process of implementing your backup and recovery plan.
This session will start with a little history of RMAN and some of the basics every DBA should now from where the presentation will then fast trace to new RMAN features introduced in the latest versions of Oracle with specific focus on Oracle 12c.
