It’s nearly that time of the year again: Oracle OpenWorld kicks off on September 18th in San Francisco. I’m hoping to meet some of you out there, but for those of you not going I intend to keep you up-to-date with the latest optimizer news by posting updates here during OOW week and more when the dust has settled a bit.
For those of you going, the Oracle Optimizer session is on Monday 19th, 1:45pm to 2:30pm in Moscone South—303. The title is Oracle Optimizer: Upgrading Without Pain [CON6450] and I'll be covering some important changes and enhancements we've made to make things easier for you.
Also, check out the panel session Optimizing SQL for Performance and Maintainability
[CON6557] on Thursday 22nd,
1:15pm - 2:00 pm in Moscone South—103. The developer advocates hosting the panel, Chris and Connor, have asked me to join them so I'll be there as an official gatecrasher.
Please try and take the opportunity to come and meet the Oracle Optimizer developers at the Oracle Optimizer and Statistics demo ground booth (number 1633). You can ask them in person about all the new features they’ve added and the enhancements they’ve made. I’ll be at the booth on Tuesday afternoon, and probably on-and-off throughout the week.
Finally, my fellow product managers in the data warehousing and big data arena are presenting a bunch of sessions. Check them out in the full searchable OOW catalog. If you search using keywords like partitioning, warehousing, warehouse, parallel and analytics you’ll find them.
