Oracle Open World 2018 is over since two weeks now. And for me it was the by far busiest OOW ever. We had 4 presentations, 4 labs, 12 customer CVCs, several other customer appointments … and I wouldn’t want to miss a single one. It was a lot of work – but meeting with these customers, the discussions after the talks, at the hallways, at the lab, that is so important for us. With a distance of several thousand kilometers and 2 weeks, I’m writing Oracle Open World 2018 – Recap, Slides – and a BIG THANK YOU!
Oracle Open World 2018 – Recap, Slides, Impressions – and a BIG THANK YOU!
We’ve had 4 talks this year – and all of them luckily with customers:
- The New AutoUpgrade for the Oracle Database
with Daniel Overby Hansen from SimCorp, Denmark
- Upgrade to Oracle 18c – Live and Uncensored
with Kamran Agayev from AzerCell, Azerbaijan
- How to migrate to the Oracle Autonomous Cloud
with Julian Dontcheff from Accenture, Finland
- Cloud Migration from AIX to ExaCC – for DBAs and Managers
with Soner Toraman from Metro-Nom, Germany
I’ve had a lot of fun, already during preparation. And of course on stage as well. Daniel had such excellent slides. Kamran managed to push 50 slides in a 20 minute slot. Julian added the real-world experience from Accenture. And Soner added a lot of insights into a complex and challenging project at one of the largest retailers in the world with a good sense of humor. I’m so happy about the chance to be on stage with these people.
Guys, you all were awesome!!! Thanks so much for presenting with us.
And thanks to all of you who came to our talks.
Download the Slides
I uploaded the slides to the blog already. Please find them in the Slides Download Center.
We’ve had 4 hands-on labs – and all except the last one on Thursday were sold out. We knew upfront that you have no chance to complete the entire lab. But as the lab is available on the blog, please download it and repeat the exercise at your own speed. Nobody will stop you after 60 minutes.
The instructions are on the blog:
And next year at OOW19, you’ll do the AutoUpgrade configuration with Oracle Database 19c 😉
And finally, here are some impression from OOW18.
Hope to see you again next year!
