I'm presenting @ Oracle Open World this Monday, Oct 26, 5:15pm in the Intercontinental, Room B.
The title is CON4940 "Spending Less Time Maintaining And More Time With Your Family".
I'll share data on how with one simple installation decision you can reduce your subsequent production lifecycle issue rate by over 70%, both in terms of Service Requests and underlying Bugs.
I'll also share data on two other easy ways you can dramatically reduce your operational risk and your maintenance workload AT NO EXTRA COST - both items are covered by Premier Support.
Indeed, we'll patch your systems for you, so you don't have to!
How's that for a cost saving ?
I call it the "Maintenance rEvolution". You can decide whether it's Evolution or Revolution.
I'll also briefly update you on recent security vulnerability process improvements and progress on Ksplice (and more) for Solaris.
If you can't make it to OpenWorld, there'll be another opportunity to catch an updated version of the presentation at the DOAG conference in Nuremberg in November.
I'll then publish it here.
