This year is seeing unprecedented changes in IT that are accelerating the pace of what was already happening around data operations, cloud adoption, application delivery and data privacy.

The use of new technologies built around AI and ML such as autonomous databases and the growth of hybrid databases, at a time when data privacy is under the spotlight, have the potential to significantly impact the traditional role of the DBA. 

This session will explore some of these new technology trends and what to expect from an increasingly dynamic market.
