2017 has been an incredibly busy year! Besides speaking at half a dozen different Regional Oracle User Groups this year, I co-authored two new books, experimented in depth with Oracle Public Cloud, and helped my latest employer, ViON Corporation, build out their Oracle Gold partnership from the ground up, one customer at a time. It’s been an exhilarating experience for me, but for you, it means access to some great collateral and code:
- I’ve added all three of my most popular presentations as PowerPoint slide shows for download. Many folks have asked me for the sample code in the two most technical presentations on Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory feature explorations and Analytic views. Just in case you missed out on seeing me present at one of my numerous conference engagements this past year, I hope these presentations help you with your experimentation.
- I’ve also added a link to all of the code examples for my most recent book, PDB Me to Oracle Cloud Pocket Solutions Guide: A Lazy DBA’s Guide to Mastering Multitenant Features on Oracle Cloud, that I co-authored with good friend and fellow Oracle ACE Director Charles Kim from Viscosity NA. It’s a great little handbook that explores some of the neatest features of Oracle 12cR2 multitenancy, including the ability to move a PDB between different CDBs without ever facing any application downtime. Oh, and by the way – it’s all done in the Oracle Public Cloud!
- Check out my most recent article on IOUG SELECT that include my impressions from Oracle OpenWorld 2017. I review what Larry Ellison’s keynotes revealed for the future of Oracle and what those revelations most likely mean for the role of Oracle DBA in the coming months and years.
- Finally, Oracle Technology Network just published my latest article that explores the unique advantages of leveraging Oracle Public Cloud’s Exadata Express features for a robust, automatic, and powerful Cloud-based platform, especially for experimenting with Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory features at a reasonable cost before investing in it for your on-premises databases.
Enjoy, my colleagues! Here’s to a 2018 that’s full of surprises. Only good ones!
