New Slide Decks Uploaded:
Upgrade/Migrate/Consolidate to Oracle 12c and
Parallel Multitenant Upgrade Internals

It’s time for a few updates and slide uploads 🙂 And thanks again to all the great people in Madrid earlier this week. It was a fantastic day – I enjoyed it a lot and wish you all successful upgrades and migrations 🙂

What’s new?

  • 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

Slides for the OTN LAOUC 2014 Tour

Roy has done the OTN Tour 2014 in Brazil, Peru and Chile this week – and I will fly out on the weekend towards Argentina to present at the OTN Tour in Buenos Aires, and afterwards in Montevideo in Uruguay.

In case you would like to download the slide decks (even though we would recommend to download the big slide deck) please find them in the Slides Download Center to the right.

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. …

Some impressions from Australia

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 …

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.

New version of the huge Upgrade to 11.2 slides uploaded

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 …

Ah, and you’ll find the newest slideset ready for download as always on the right side in the SLIDE DOWNLOAD section 🙂

DOAG – German Oracle User Group Conference

This time I had only one presentation at the DOAG Conference in Nürnberg (actually that’s my hometown so it’s always great for me to be there).

And – as always – it was great to meet all the Oracle users again. For me that’s the best opportunity to get in touch with customers I know for a looooong long time, Oracle colleagues from Germany – and even some US colleagues such as Hermann Baer, Markus Michalewicz and Tom Kyte presented as well. Sometimes you feel like being at a big family event 😉

And thanks to those you stayed for …

Workshop slides for Mumbai and Delhi

Finally me and Anoop arrived in Delhi a bit later than expected. Kingfisher Airlines is really good – and I think it was not their fault that we had nearly a 2 hour delay for a less-than-2-hour-flight. I’ve heard rumors that the IT of Delhi airport has been relocated to the new terminal today causing some flight delays …
Hopefully they’ll have time to visit the workshop in Delhi tomorrow 🙂

And thanks to the nice audience today in Mumbai. I did really enjoy the day and you had very good questions. In order to download the slides please access …

I will never understand airline pricing

Thanks to everybody who attended the upgrade workshop in Santa Clara, CA today. You were a very attentive audience and I got some great questions (especially during the breaks). As always, you can download the slide set here:

500+ Slide Set “Upgrade to Oracle Database 11g: The Whole Story”
Keyword (Schluesselwort): upgrade112

As a complete non sequitur, I have to say that I will never understand airline pricing. I arrived at SJC airport for my 6:50 PM flight to Burbank, and found that a 5:30 PM flight was boarding. The flight was clearly less than half full, so I …
