1-2 September: POUG. Krakow. 12cR2.

Dzien dobry, my colleagues in Europe! I’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at the High Five POUG conference on 1-2 September in beautiful Krakow, Poland. I’m thankful to my colleagues at ORA-600 for organizing this conference; last year’s gathering in Warsaw was packed with some of the best presenters I’ve had the honor to meet and featured excellent, in-depth technical information.

I’ll be presenting one of my favorite topics: Stop Guessing, Start Analyzing: New Analytic View Features in Oracle Database 12cR2. I’ll show you how to leverage the unique features of Analytic Views in 12cR2 that can save an Oracle DBA and application developers from writing inordinately complex code to solve multi-dimensional analytic queries.

Krakow is the Polish “city of kings” filled with marvelous architecture, deep history, and wonderful people … so if you haven’t visited this jewel of a city yet, here’s your chance. You will not leave hungry or thirsty, that’s for sure! I’m happy to report that I’ve been working on my Polish vocabulary and though I have advanced a bit beyond simple greetings, my presentation will still be in English yet again this year, prszepraszam.

Oh, and I’d like to mention that of all the speakers, I’m the only one with a Polish last name. That’s how exclusive this conference is! I’m looking forward to seeing all my European colleagues there. Don’t miss it!

 

May 9-10, Atlanta: Get Your Tech On, Courtesy of GAOUG!

If you are ready to find out more about Oracle 12cR2 – or if you’re even just worried about the future of Oracle DBA-dom – please mark May 9-10 on your calendar and plan to join me and an illustrious group of Oracle ACEs in Atlanta when the Georgia Oracle Users Group convenes their 2017 Tech Day conference.

My first presentation is DBA 3.0: Transform Yourself into a Cloud DBA, or Face a Stormy Future, will offer up my viewpoints on how five key trends in the IT industry – Cloud, Big Data, IoT, Security, and Reshoring – are having an impact on the role of the Oracle DBA within their IT organizations, and how it’s crucial to transform yourself into a Cloud DBA in 2017.

My second presentation, Stop Guessing, Start Analyzing: New Analytic View Features in Oracle Database 12cR2, will take a look at the unique features of Analytic Views in 12cR2 that can save an Oracle DBA and application developers from writing inordinately complex code to solve multi-dimensional analytic queries.

If you attended this event last year, you already know how much talent was on stage and the level of technical detail that was presented. Please tell your colleagues all about this event – it’s one of the best in the Southeastern US, and supported by an extremely robust Oracle User Group. So if you are planning to be in the Atlanta area during the 2nd week of May 2017, don’t miss this event!
