OOW Thursday - Caffeine and Adrenaline

Are your ears ringing after the Elton John show at Treasure Island? What a performance!

Well, today it's back to Moscone for some database rock stars.  Demogrounds are closed now of course, and for the first year in several we don't have a Multitenant session on Thursday to close the show. I've got a packed agenda with customer meetings, but today's your last chance to catch our Hands-on Lab. It's fully booked but there's always a chance that someone doesn't show up, particularly at the end of the week, so if you want to get your hands dirty with Multitenant 12.2, pop over to the Nikko. You're looking for "HOL10485: Multitenant Hands-On Lab" at 11am. Remember, it takes about 15 minutes to walk over there from Moscone. 

Have a great last day of OpenWorld! 

We at Oracle all work extremely hard to prepare for OpenWorld. It's a privilege to be able to show off our technology and interact with so many thousands of customers, many of whom have come from far and wide to be with us for this big event. We're sincerely grateful. We hope that you have had an enjoyable time in beautiful San Francisco. It remains to wish you a safe journey home and every success with your deployment of Oracle Multitenant.

Wednesday at OOW - Island Fever

If you've paced yourself properly you'll be nicely in your groove at OpenWorld by now, finally got your bearings at Moscone, moving smoothly between the sessions and the demo grounds. Today's the last day of DemoGrounds, remember. There are some great general sessions to look out for too. Here are my top recommendations for today. 

At 12:15pm in Moscone South-308 (where else?) John McHugh's going to deliver his standing-room-only "CON6781: Oracle Multitenant: Best Practices". This one's a winner every year. The point is that it's the same abstract but always fresh content. The basic philosophy of our Best Practices is "this document is never finished." Come and hear John talk about some of the major lessons learned with some of our strategic customer deployments. 

Grab a coffee and then head over to Moscone South - 301 (change of scene!) at 1:45pm for "CON8358: Oracle Multitenant: Customer Panel". I'm playing MC but you won't have to put up with much from me. We've got some top-notch speakers:

  • Tom Bolick, Database Administrator, Cisco Systems
  • Shravan Devulapalli, Principal Technologist, GE
  • Alex Gorbachev, CTO, The Pythian Group Inc.
  • Nataraj Hegde, Oracle Database Architech, Charles Schwab 

You don't want to miss this one. After that, catch your breath and put on your party dress and dancing shoes. Hop on a bus to Treasure Island and enjoy the show that Elton John's going to put on. Still awesome after all these years.

Cruise-day Tuesday

We're on a roll now, but I do confess it was tough to drag myself out of bed this morning after last night's hospitality event. It's great to hang out with our customers in a relaxed atmosphere. So many customers are going out of their way to say good things about their experiences deploying Multitenant and it's nice to be able to give a small amount back, in classic Oracle style. Oracle knows how to par-tay. I'm talking about one of dozens of events last night. If I didn't see you last night, I hope you had fun wherever you were - but not so much fun that you're not ready for today. 'Cos today's got some solid stuff coming too. 

Deba Chatterjee is going to drill into the enhancements we've built into Multitenant in 12.2 specifically aimed at Software as a Service. And before you think "that's very interesting, but I'm not a SaaS company", you'd be surprised at how widely applicable the new Application Container technology is. If you run a car dealership, a fro-yo shop, maybe want to kick off a new coffee franchise business, we've got something for you here. Moscone South-308 is the venue again and the session is "CON8357: Oracle Multitenant: Ideal Architecture for World-Class SaaS". Be there at 12:15.

I'm greatly looking forward to Larry's Tuesday keynote. On Sunday he promised that he would demonstrate moving a PDB to the cloud at the touch of a button, and without taking any application outage.  

Charles Schwab and company are having some great success with their Multitenant deployment. I'm looking forward to hearing what Nataraj Hegde has to say about all this in my customer panel tomorrow, but now I'm getting ahead of myself. Today at 4pm in Moscone South-308 (Multitenant HQ!) Mark Meredith of Charles Schwab will present "CON5882 - Speed Up or Lag Behind: Charles Schwab Increases Agility with Private DBaaS" along with Oracle's Bob Ure. I had a chat with Mark the other day and this is a very interesting use case from a very serious business. These people do things right. You don't want to miss this one.

And we're under way!

We had to wait a few weeks more than usual but yet again the big show is on in San Francisco. Last year Larry made us wait until Tuesday's keynote to show off Multitenant, but it was worth the wait... Who can forget the demonstration of moving a PDB to the cloud at the touch of a button? Can he possibly top that? Well, maybe there are some tricks built into Oracle Database 12cRelease 2 (aka 12.2) which will allow him to do so. In yesterday's keynote he promised to demonstrate in his Tuesday keynote how to move a PDB to the cloud at the touch of a button... without taking any application outage! I know you gonna dig this.

Well, today is the first full day of OpenWorld and we're already in top gear. Sunday's keynote always whets the appetite, and now you can explore the various general sessions, demo stations and hands-on labs to get some more in-depth insight into what's new with 12.2. (Hint: a lot!)

I'd suggest starting with Andy Mendelson's general session, this morning at 11am in Marriott Marquis 7/8/9. The session is "GEN6765 Next-Generation Data Management Architecture". I've seen a preview of what Andy's going to announce and I've no idea how he's going to cram it all into one hour. Well, if I know one thing about Andy it's that he's not going to back down from a challenge. You don't want to miss this one, especially because he's going to talk about some of the goodies coming with Multitenant in 12.2. If there's time we'll even see a cameo appearance by my counterpart in development, Multitenant Architect himself, Kumar Rajamani.

Kumar and I have to run out of Andy's session after it's over without delay - and so should you - because at 12:15pm back in Moscone South-308, we're doing our double-act for CON8356: Oracle Multitenant: the Road Ahead. I've been polishing these slides for a while and we should be in good shape. Stop by at the end to talk to Kumar and me. Several members of the development team will be on hand as well. It's always nice to hear your reaction after announcing new features. 

Be sure to pace yourself during the day, because there's a great session at 5:15 in Moscone South-302. Kevin Hacker of Northern Trust will present "CON7527: Northern Trust’s Strategy for Adopting Multitenant as a Foundation for DBaaS" along with Oracle's Randy Swanson. We've been working closely with Northern Trust over the past few months on their rollout, which has been very smooth. They're taking a very interesting approach to this - all-Exadata, and Platinum tier systems first. Don't believe me? Check out the session. Two great speakers with a great story to tell.

There's only one good excuse for missing Northern Trust's session and that is that you're going to hit the first of our Hands-on Labs. It's unfortunate that these clash but some things can't be helped. Much of the content of these labs is based on the on-site Beta we ran a few weeks ago. We've now announced the public availability of the 12.2 beta, so here's your chance to get a preview of some of the Multitenant goodies that you can try out when you download the beta for yourselves after the show's over.

Multitenant Buzz @RMOUG

There's a lot of buzz about Multitenant at RMOUG. Thank goodness! It's so darned cold in Denver we needed something to thaw us all out. Just got back to my hotel room from a very good dinner with the ACE Directors. Tom Kyte promised me that despite talking about Multitenant in his keynote and deep-dive sessions he's left me a little thunder for my session tomorrow at 11:15. I'd hoped to catch Leighton Nelson's talk on DBaaS but unfortunately we are on at the same time. I'm looking forward to Bryn Llewellyn's talk "Self-Provisioning Pluggable Databases Using PL/SQL" at 9:45.
