ABSTRACT :
Go Faster: Make Oracle Work For You

Oracle DBAs find it difficult to get complete and correct information about how the database engine works. Even when bits of truth are collected, consolidating the data into a useful performance optimizing solution is complicated. When a diagnosis is incomplete or the DBA doesn’t understand why a solution improves performance, solution creation becomes a guessing game resulting in haphazard performance improvements.
In this seminar you will learn how selected areas of Oracle work together. The topics are updated constantly (including Oracle 12c) to make this seminar fresh for each audience. Care is given as to why performance solutions work and how to make them usable and practical in a complex and highly available production environment.
BIO :
Craig is a long time Oracle DBA (1989) who specializes in Oracle performance. He is also an Oracle ACE Director, performance researcher and blogger, consultant, author of two books (Oracle Performance Firefighting, Forecasting Oracle Performance), an enthusiastic conference speaker, and a passionate teacher to thousands of Oracle professionals. He is the founder and president of OraPub, creator of the performance analysis tool, Stori, and clearly pushes the teaching envelope with his online seminars.  His blog, A Wider View, is where to find his most recent public performance research.
