If you have any applications you'd like to upgrade from SQL Server to Oracle, don't miss this session. The way OB tells it: "I wish I'd had this paper before we started this project." (OK, we'd all like a time machine.)

    • Thu 10:45am Intercontinental B

The build-up is finally over! Oracle Open World San Francisco kicks off today with Larry Ellison's keynote address at 6pm. Some fabulous announcements in store... Just in case you miss it here are some about Oracle Multitenant. We've got an Oracle PDB USB stick waiting for you at Demo Pod SL023. You can also go to the OTN Lounge Sunday afternoon or else Monday & Tuesday at 10am for guidance on how to set it up. It looks great but the beauty is more than skin deep. 

You can check our Focus on Oracle Multitenant Page for some of the major Multitenant-related events during the week. There are separate sections for sessions, demos and hands-on-labs.
