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!
The Rocky Mountain User Group (RMOUG) Training Days 2018 are over. And I’d like to say THANK YOU with a short RMOUG Training Days 2018 in Denver – Recap.
RMOUG Training Days 2018 in Denver – Recap
First of all a BIG Thank You to the organizers. I’d bet this was a lot of hard work to organize such a huge event with so many excellent presentations in parallel streams, the exhibitor space, the food and everything else. And it really was worth to take to long flight from Munich to Denver (11 hrs – but luckily non-stop).
Denver welcomed …Continue reading...
Thanks for your patience. I have received a good amount of calls, emails and messages in the past weeks when the slides for DOAG and UKOUG will be available. And they are now including the “New Release and Patching Model” talk. Find slides and recap – DOAG 2017 and UKOUG 2017 here.

I was shocked. Positively. We’ve had a packed room on Wednesday at Oracle Open World 2017 for our talk together with Jay Barnhart of Centric Consulting on How to Migrate 100 TB databases in less than one day. And we’ve had so much fun. Thanks for coming by, thanks for being so active. This makes all the travel and the stress really worth it.

Thanks for coming to Roy’s and Julian Dontcheff‘s presentation about How to migrate to the Oracle Cloud – 13 different techniques and customer experiences on Tuesday at Oracle Open World 2017. The talk was very well attended, I saw many people taking pictures and notes.
OOW 2017 – Slides Download: Migrate to the Oracle Cloud
Personally I liked the talk a lot as it gives a very good (and very rare) complete overview on techniques how to migrate to the Oracle Cloud, advantages, use cases, database versions, where to use it. This all garnished with the experience Accenture has …Continue reading...
Thank you for coming by to our talk at Oracle Open World 2017: Upgrade to Oracle Database 12.2 – Customer Cases. It was a pleasure to have so many people attending. And I’m really proud about the support we’ve had by Alain Fuhrer and Paolo Kreth from Swiss Mobiliar Insurance and Daniel Overby Hansen from Danish SimCorp.
As we promised, we did no marketing. Only real customers with real environments. All on Oracle Database 188.8.131.52 live and in production.
Alain was with me on stage and he did a fantastic job showcasing Mobiliar’s project about upgrading over 300 databases …Continue reading...
Time flies – and the OTN Tour South America 2017: Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil is over for me. I’m back home.
OTN Tour South America 2017: Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil
But Id like to thank many people. It was an awesome tour again. I participated for the forth time. And I learned a lot again. From customers who discussed their upgrades and migrations with me. From the other presenters who did a terrific job.
A very big Thank You to all the people who organized the events. I liked it a lot. And you deserve a lot of credits for …Continue reading...
The workshops in Brussels and Utrecht were awesome with great audience – I enjoyed both events a lot. And thanks for your patience with my voice and the microphone issues we’ve had in Brussels before lunch.
I promised the workshop slides – and here they are, ready for download:
Please be aware: It’s the first drop of the slides, not everything has been updated yet for Oracle Database 12.2, and of course there are no 12.2 customer examples in the slides yet. But as usual, if you …Continue reading...
The past weeks were very intense. I’ve been to Japan for customer meetings and a Dev Day and an internal workshop, then on to China for an internal training, then to India for SANGAM conference and afterwards to Nürnberg for DOAG, the German Oracle User’s Group conference.

Sorry for any delay but Roy and I promised to make our OOW 2016 slides available right after the talks. And some people were asking already where they are.
For internal people you’ll find them via the usual sources on database.us.
But customers will have to wait until Oracle Database 12.2 is available in the Cloud as it got announced at OOW during the keynotes.
What you can get right now:
- How to Ensure Performance Stability when Upgrading to Oracle Database 12c,
our Thursday OOW16 talk. I had to mask the Oracle 12.2 information but the presentation should be
OOW16 is not over yet. Still one day to go. Or walk. My average walking distance per day so far is almost 11km per day or 13500 steps according to my cell phone.
We’ve had one talk so far, our “Upgrade and Migrate to Oracle Database 12.2 – Live and Uncensored” on Monday, 3 of 4 Hands-On-Labs, all fully sold out – and tomorrow we’ll have the final lab and the 2nd presentation “Ensure Performance Stability When Upgrading to Oracle Database 12c” in Moscone South 302 at 9:30am.
Today I just realized that the “wonderful” OOW iPhone app …Continue reading...

I’m not on vacation right now. I’m just very busy traveling between customer onsite visits, customer meetings and workshops, internal and external workshops, testing sessions … and so on …
A lot of stuff has been stacked up in my inbox regarding changes in Oracle 12c, changed behavior – and thanks for your inputs. I will blog on it as soon as I have understood the issue and the solution – so plenty of stuff should come in the next weeks 😉
Just end of last week Roy and I uploaded a new version of our BIG slide deck – …Continue reading...

- A refreshed version of our huge Oracle Database 12c “Upgrade, Migrate & Consilidate” slide deck. Now with 530 slides – kudos to Tom Kyte who gave me a lot of food for thought after his excellent talk at the DB TECH SHOWCASE 2014 TOKYO. I had to add a few slides later on making

Oh … it took a while … but we’ve tried to include a bit of the new Oracle Database 220.127.116.11 stuff into the slides. And we had to refresh them to the new template which looks nice but is a bit strange to handle 😉
So please find the new revised slide deck about:

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. …Continue reading...
Roy today presented about Upgrade Best Practices to Oracle Database 12c including moving into the world of Multitenant and Pluggable Databases at COLLABORATE 2014 in Las Vegas.. And the slides can be downloaded via this link:
Being again in Australia was – again – a great experience. If only traveling to Down Under wouldn’t take this long … 🙂 But thanks to everybody who showed up – and sorry to those which got a “Sorry, it’s sold out already!” message. It was pure fun to talk to you and we’ll hope to get a lot of people to move onwards to Oracle 12c as soon as possible. Don’t forget: 11.2 will go out of Premier Support in less than 12 months from now on. Of course we’ll return one day – and certainly our colleagues …Continue reading...
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.
Download it from this location:

It took a while to create a new and corrected version of the huge (sorry … now over 500 slides) Upgrade and Migration to Oracle Database 11.2 slide deck.
But you’ll find it to the right in the Slides Download Center.
As we will start with a new deck for the upcoming Oracle Database 12c slide set the old one may not see changes anymore from now on. And thanks a lot to everybody who has been helped to correct typos, syntax or naming errors and highlighted topics or misbehavior of the database we haven’t seen …Continue reading...
