Thanks for coming to the Upgrade Workshops in Dublin & Belfast – special thanks to my friends at LUFTHANSA

Thanks to everybody who came to our Upgrade/Migrate/Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c on Oct 14/15 in Dublin and Belfast. You were great audiences, I had plenty of fun, excellent deep dive discussion during the breaks and afterwards during the customer visits day on Thursday.

And very special thanks to my colleagues from Oracle Ireland, especially Mina and Kelly-Marie, but also all the others who were involved in the events and visits and made it happen so smoothly. Everything worked perfectly well except for things not in our hands (such as the massive train delay on the way back from Belfast).… [ Read more ]

Upcoming UPGRADE Workshops in:
Netherlands, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Spain and Belgium

Wow … another OOW is over … I have returned well but a bit jetlaged on Saturday from San Fransciso. It was a pleasure to meet with so many great customers, partners, Oracle ACEs, geeks and of course colleagues from all over the world.

And I’m still surprised how little DBAs and managers are aware of the upcoming end of Premier Support for Oracle Database 11.2 and still believe in “The 2nd Release Only”. But I’ll write something about this later this or next week.

And as soon as my time allows (most likely in the 2nd half of October) … [ Read more ]

New Slides + Workshop Recap:
Luxembourg, Brussels, Vienna, Geneva & Baden

The first 5 of a long workshop run are over. Thanks for coming in, your patience for hundreds of slides and plenty of new (and some old) stuff. I really enjoyed seeing you and talking to you in Luxembourg, Brussels, Vienna, Geneva and Baden in the last 3 weeks.

And credits go to my colleagues Bernd Jodocy, Johan Vanden Bossche, Erwin Sulzgruber, Roger Wullschleger, Christiane Schlüter and all the others for setting up the events so well, did the inviations, assisted before, during and after the workshops – and gave me taxi rides between airports and locations. … [ Read more ]

Upgrade Workshops – Locations

Dear all,

unfortunately somebody has missed to add the locations to the registrations page – and if you follow the Google Maps links you may drive apparently to a McDonalds burger place instead of the correct location (at least they’ll offer free WLAN).

So please find the updated locations here – and enter the registration by clicking on the location/date directly.

New Version of Slide Deck available:
Upgrade/Migrate/Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c

Finally … we refreshed our entire Upgrade, Migrate & Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c slide deck. And hey, it has not even 460 slides right now 😉 We changed a lot – not only the format to 16×9 but also a lot of the content. It’s not entirely 12c – so everybody interested still in Oracle Database 11.2 will find a lot of useful information in it.
