I recently did a joint presentation with Oracle Ace Arup Nanda as part of IOUG's "12 Months of Database 12c" series. (So we've just completed our seventh quarter since launching DB12c, but who's counting? Time flies, when you're having fun, after all!) As usual IOUG did a great job of setting this up. I like their introductory blurb, so here it is in their very words:
You’ve heard about the multitenant feature of Oracle Database 12c, but why does it matter to your company? Lots of reasons. Join Oracle’s foremost Multitenant expert Patrick Wheeler, and Oracle guru Arup Nanda as they dig into the multitenant architecture, how it simplifies consolidation and enables DBaaS, how it can have a significant impact on the cost of delivering database services, and how your regular activities--backup, recovery, data guard, security, etc--will change after you change over to multitenant.
Arup Nanda, Principal Database Architect at Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.;
Patrick Wheeler, Senior Director, Product Management, Oracle Corporation
I thought the presentation went very well. It was very interesting to hear Arup clearly explain how Starwood Hotels are using Multitenant to consolidate their Siebel databases. In case you missed it, or you can't get enough and want to hear it again, here's a link to the replay on the IOUG site.
