OOW 2014 - Upgrade and Data Pump Talks

Oracle Open World (OOW) 2014 in San Francisco is coming ... just a few weeks to go ... everybody is in the prep phase for demos, presentations, labs etc. 

If you'd like to get in touch with us to discuss your upgrade and migration strategies please feel free to contact either Roy Swonger or myself directly. We'll be happy to assist you. And of course you are welcome to stop by at our combined Upgrade/DataPump booth at the demo grounds and visit one of our talks.

Our group is happy to deliver the following talks and labs:

How to Upgrade, Migrate, and Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c [CON7647]
Monday, Sep 29, 5:15 PM - 6:00 PM - Moscone South - 102

The most widely anticipated feature of Oracle Database 12c is now available, and you may be wondering just how you can move your current databases to pluggable databases in a multitenant architecture. Whether you are just starting to explore the world of pluggable databases or are planning a production upgrade in the near future to Oracle Database 12c, this presentation by Oracle Database upgrade and migration experts gives you all the details: what methods are available; how they work; and which is the best for your particular upgrade, migration, or consolidation scenario.

How an Oracle Database 12c Upgrade Works in a Multitenant Environment [CON7648]
Tuesday, Sep 30, 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM - Moscone South - 306

With the first patch set of Oracle Database 12c, you will be able to choose between various methods of upgrading a multitenant container database and its pluggable databases. In this session, you will hear from Oracle upgrade experts about all the details of how a database upgrade works in a multitenant environment. You will learn what your options are, how parallelism works for database upgrades, and what is new for database upgrades in the first patch set of Oracle Database 12c.

How and Why to Migrate from Schema Consolidation to Pluggable Databases [CON7649]
Wednesday, Oct 1, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM - Moscone South - 306

One important use case for pluggable databases is to enable you to move from schema consolidation with multiple applications in the same database to a more secure environment with Oracle Multitenant and pluggable databases. In this technical session, you will hear from Oracle development experts about the methods available for migrating from schema consolidation to a multitenant database environment with Oracle Data Pump, transportable tablespaces, or new features in Oracle Multitenant.

Oracle Database 12c Upgrade: Tools and Best Practices from Oracle Support [CON8236]
This talk is not done by us but by our Global Tech Lead for Upgrades in Support, Agrim Pandit
Tuesday, Sep 30, 5:00 PM - 5:45 PM - Moscone South - 310

You’ve heard about Oracle Database 12c and its new capabilities. Now come hear from Oracle experts about all the great tools and resources Oracle offers to help you upgrade to Oracle Database 12c efficiently and effectively. This session’s presenters, from Oracle Support, bring years of database experience and recent lessons learned from Oracle Database 12c upgrades at companies of all sizes all around the world. You are sure to leave with valuable information that will help you plan and execute your upgrade. What's more, most, if not all, of the tools and resources they discuss are available to current customers at no additional cost through their standard product support coverage.

.

I will publish the schedules for the Hands-On-Lab (4x) and the location of the demo ground's booth as soon as I'll get it.

OOW 2013: Recap - Thanks a lot!!!

OOW 2013 is over for a while now. And yesterday we've received the session results from our talk and the HOL. And we have to say Thank You Very Much! For your time, for the great discussions, for your feedbacks. This is the highest session count we've had in the past years.

Generally my overall feeling this year was that database sessions were very well attended - and the two sessions I wanted to see in my limited spare time were already sold out. And we've really had so many great discussion at our booth 007 - and Joe was an excellent "double" as Daniel Craig was kept up with other stuff ;-)

So thanks again - and we hope to make you the VBox image for the lab available soon for download. In between please feel free to download the slides from the download center - or simply grab the big deck about Upgrade to Oracle Database 12c.

Furthermore let me introduce the new sections with White Papers making it easier to find them and the new Oracle Blogs section with blogs I fequently visit.

And finally here are some impressions from OOW 2013:
