Cruise-day Tuesday

Patrick Wheeler
Vice President, Product Management

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.

Full details of Multitenant sessions are available in the Focus On Multitenant page.
