The Five Best Things to Happen to SQL
We’ll take a look at the five most impactful modifications to the SQL language over the year starting with Analytic windowing functions and going to Row Pattern matching. Practical examples to demonstrate the raw power of these features will dominate the talk.
All about Statistics
This session will look at the importance of statistics to the optimizer, what they do for the optimizer. We will investigate the methods for getting statistics to the optimizer (which is not limited to gathering statistics) and how the different types of statistics can make a difference. Strategies for statistics gathering will be explored.
What Do I Really Need to Know When Upgrading?
Upgrading from release to release can be a scary proposition. Which features and options of Oracle Database do you need to be fully aware of and use in order to make the progression smooth? This presentation considers the who, what, where, and why of these features and options.
Tom’s Top 12 Things about the Latest Generation of Database Technology
We’ll be taking a look at the Latest Generation of Database Technology and zeroing in on 12 high impact capabilities,looking at what they are and why they are relevant.
