WebCast Replay Available: Tuning All Layers of EBS (Part 1)

I am pleased to release the replay and presentation for the latest ATG Live Webcast:

Lester Gutierrez, Senior Architect, and Deepak Bhatnagar, Senior Manager, from the E-Business Suite Application Performance team, lead Tuning All Layers of E-Business Suite (Part 1 of 3). This 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. Part 1 focuses on the performance triage approach, tuning applications modules, upgrade performance best practices, and tuning the database tier. This ATG Live Webcast is an expansion of the performance sessions at conferences that are perennial favourites with hardcore Apps DBAs. (August 2011)

Stay tuned for Part 2 after OpenWorld

There will not be an ATG Live Webcast on the last Thursday in September. The normally scheduled event would be just days prior to Oracle Open World 2011. ATG Live Webcasts will resume on October 27th, 2011 with Tuning All Layers of E-Business Suite (Part 2 of 3), with Lester Gutierrez, Senior Architect, and Deepak Bhatnagar, Senior Manager, continuing on in the series of performance tuning presentations. Look for the announcement of the October 2011 webcast in late September.

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:
