Fall In New England: October 3rd for NOUG Special Event

For the first time ever, I’ll be sharing my knowledge of Oracle Database 12c with members of the Northeast Oracle Users Group (NOUG) on this coming Monday, October 3rd just outside Boston in Canton, MA at the beautiful Blue Hill Country Club. I’ll be presenting three of my most popular requested Oracle Database 12c topics:

DBA, Heal Thyself: Five Diseases of IT Organizations and How to Cure Them

This introductory session looks at how the role of Oracle DBA has changed over the past 15 years as well as how DBAs need to view their roles within their organizations to accommodate the rapidly-changing demands of tomorrow’s IT industry . Jim will describe five specific maladies he’s diagnosed within many IT shops and how an Oracle DBA’s orientation towards her role often makes the difference in curing those ailments.

Here At Last! Oracle 12cR2 New Features and Enhancements

Oracle Database 12cR2 includes features as revolutionary as the 12cR1 release. This session will review several of its most intriguing new feature sets and what they mean to a typical Oracle DBA, including its new PDB Live Migration features, significant enhancements to Database In-Memory, Sharded Databases (SDBs), In-Place Tablespace Encryption, Sparse RMAN Backups, and Schema PITR.

 Regression Analyzed, Tout de Suite: Leveraging Oracle 12c Database’s Real Application Testing (RAT) Suite

If you’re tired of not knowing exactly how your applications will perform once you’ve upgraded to Oracle Database 12cR1, or if you’re exhausted from tuning SQL after your developers have released their latest version of code without really testing it to destruction, then this session is for you. Jim will explain RAT Suite’s newest functions in, including Workload Intelligence, Workload Scale-Up, and Consolidated Database Replay, as well as its original key features – Database Capture and Replay (DBCR) and SQL Performance Analyzer (SPA) – to avoid unnecessary application performance regression before applications are deployed.

OnX Enterprise Solutions will be sponsoring this event, and that means there will be some great door prizes, “swag,” and even a few signed copies of my recent books as raffle prizes. It’ll be a fun evening filled with 12c knowledge, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all there.

Space is limited, so save the date on your calendar! Registration will open soon.
