Some impressions from Austalia

Being again in Australia was - again - a great experience. If only traveling to Down Under wouldn't take this long ... :-) But thanks to everybody who showed up - and sorry to those which got a "Sorry, it's sold out already!" message. It was pure fun to talk to you and we'll hope to get a lot of people to move onwards to Oracle 12c as soon as possible. Don't forget: 11.2 will go out of Premier Support in less than 12 months from now on. Of course we'll return one day - and certainly our colleagues from Oracle Australia will be able to assist you as well regarding your upgrade and migration efforts.

Please feel free to grab the slides via this link:

And here are some impressions from a RAINY weekend in Sydney ;-)

Upgrade Workshop in Sydney - Recap

Late, but hopefully not too late, a big THANK YOU to everybody who did attend the Upgrade and Migration Workshop in Sydney at the Cliftons past week. You were a really good crowd, thanks for all your questions, the great conversations in the breaks, thanks to the local marketing team for the excellent organization - and we'll looking forward to see you next time again with all your databases then live on Oracle Database 11.2 

To download the slides please find them in the Slides Download Center to your right - or use the direct link to download the workshop slide deck.

And I really don't understand how you can go to daily work (or to a workshop) with such beaches nearby ... I would immediatelly change my job profile ;-) Honestly, Sydney is really a great place. Australia and New Zealand generally are wonderful places and we've met so many great people in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Wellington, Sydney and during our travel in between. Just if there wouldn't be over 20 hours pure flight time in between Germany and Down Under ;-)

Hope to see you all again next time for 12c ;-)

Upgrade Workshop in Melbourne - Recap

Thanks to everybody who did attend at our Upgrade and Migration Workshop in Melbourne last Friday. First of all it was a Friday so we really appreciated your patience of staying until the very end :-) And then, yes we know, it was a full room. And we'd really like to thank you :-) It was a great day for Roy and me. And you were such a great crowd with many questions and excellent discussions during the breaks. Please have all successful upgrade and migrations. And feel free to get in touch directly with Roy and me if you have additional questions or if you'd like to become a reference.

Please feel free to download the slides from the Slides Download section to your right - or simply use that link here.

Ah, and sorry that neither Mark Webber nor Sebastian Vettel did win ... next time ;-)

Upgrade Workshops in Perth and Brisbane - Recap

Thanks to everybody who did attend on Tuesday in Perth and today in Brisbane for the Database Upgrade and Migration Workshop in the Oracle offices. We hope you've enjoyed the day as we did enjoy it ;-) Feel free to contact us regarding your experiences, upgrade successes, pitfalls you have seen and miss in the slides etc. 

Slides - please don't forget to download them via this link here.

And for those who have asked for the component dependency presentation containing also a script (find it at the very end of the presentation) to drop an unused or accidentially created RAC option in a non-RAC database, you'll find that here.

Thanks and CU next time again ;-)

Upgrade & Migration Workshops Down Under

Time flies ... and the Database Upgrade and Migration Workshops in Australia and New Zealand come closer and closer. It has been exactly two years ago since Roy and me had run the Upgrade Workshop in Perth and Melbourne. In 2010 visiting Australia was part of our Asian workshop route. But this time we'll fly the looooooooooooong way (ouch ... I'm definitely not looking forward to my eco seat in cattle class for the 18 flight hours down to Perth - and, even worse, to the 22 hours with 2 stops on the way back from Sydney) down just for Australia and New Zealand.

The local Marketing group and our colleagues from Presales and Support had done a really good job - and due to the high registration rates the events in Melbourne, Wellington and Sydney had been moved now to external vernues :-) Thanks to the local folks for their hard work!!!

All registration links are now open again. Grab your seat if you haven't registered yet or tell your colleagues. It's a technical workshop. Just 2 out of 478 slides have marketing content :-)
