Organizations are increasingly embracing cloud services to help reduce operational costs. However, using cloud database services can often result in overspend and wastage, so it’s even more important to optimize your Oracle database workload performance.

DBAs and developers who are familiar with using Toad for their on-premises Oracle databases may be unsure of how or why they should continue to use Toad with their cloud databases. After all, moving to the cloud shouldn’t require a dramatic shift in the way you use Toad to do your job.

But with the guidance in this session, you’ll easily handle Oracle development, SQL tuning, workload performance testing, administration, management and ongoing maintenance – in the cloud.

Experts Julie Hyman and John Pocknell show why it’s even more important to continue using Toad for Oracle with cloud-based Oracle databases to ensure optimal use of cloud resources and keep costs under control.
