ATG Live Webcast: Tuning All Layers of E-Business Suite

[Aug 22, 2011 Update:  Our Performance Group has decided to take advantage of the greater freedom of the webcast format and take the time to dive deeper into these subjects.  Instead of a single webcast, we're going to break this up into three parts.  Part I will be held on Aug. 25.]

I am pleased to announce our next ATG Live Webcast, scheduled for Thursday, 25-Aug-2011. The event is titled:

  • Tuning All Layers of E-Business Suite

This one-hour webcast provides an overview of how Oracle E-Business Suite system administrators, DBAs, developers, and implementers can improve E-Business Suite performance by following a performance tuning framework.

We have an Applications Performance Group whose raison-d'etre is to ensure that the E-Business Suite runs at peak performance in all circumstances.  This team has helped tune the world's largest companies and their E-Business Suite environments handle staggering amounts of transactional volume in enormous databases.  This is the same group that publishes all of the official Oracle Apps benchmarks, white papers, and performance metrics.

This session at conferences is a perennial favourite with hardcore Apps DBAs looking to squeeze out the last ounce of performance out of their existing hardware.  This session will cover:

Registration Problems:

To anyone that experiences registration problems, please send me an email at Bill-dot-Sawyer-at-Oracle-dot-Com. I want to collect experiences for our OU Studios team. Please tell me what browser, version, and O/S you are using.

Also, I will be updating the blog post on Wednesday prior to the event with direct access information. I would still appreciate those who can register to do so. This seems to be issue that doesn't affect most users. Registrations will ensure that there are enough operator-resources on the call to handle the call-in volume.
