Presentation Title: Mitigate Your Oracle Database Cloud Infrastructure Migration Challenges

Presenter: John Pocknell

Summary: Cloud migration is a journey. Migration projects must be carefully planned, tested and executed, while application and database performance should be continuously monitored to ensure ongoing success. We often hear about companies that have migrated their databases to the cloud only to learn their monthly subscription bills are far higher than anticipated.

  • Are you concerned about how to migrate your Oracle databases to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with minimum downtime and without data loss?
  • Are you unsure which OCI cloud service to subscribe to in order to balance cost with manageability?
  • Do you know how to effectively monitor database performance and ensure future scalability while optimizing your OCI cloud subscription costs?
  • Do you need to continuously replicate Oracle data between on-premises and cloud?

In this presentation, we’ll show you how easy it is to migrate your Oracle databases to OCI while mitigating cost and risk so there’s minimal impact to your business.

Presentation Title: Data Privacy and Security Implications for DBAs

Presenter: Deborah Cobb

Summary: There has been significant press coverage on corporate data breaches and compromises to personal data, along with increased focus on data privacy regulations such as HIPAA, PCI and GDPR. Of these, GDPR is considered the most comprehensive when it comes how an individual’s personal data is protected, and carries the harshest financial penalties for non-compliance.

The DBA is often the primary responsible party for implementing compliance controls and technical measures for protecting data. But GDPR first requires an assessment of where personal data is located across databases and this is one of the first challenges a DBA faces before applying protection measures.

In this presentation, we will show one simple way in which a DBA can discover and report on sensitive data in an Oracle database and how to use Oracle’s tools to protect that data.

Featured Product/Solution: Toad for Oracle with Sensitive Data Protection


Date and Time: Wednesday, September 18 | 12:00 – 12:15 pm

Presentation Title: Continuous Database Operations for Your DevOps Infrastructure

Presenter: Deborah Cobb

Summary: With little room for error in environments where downtime can cost millions, the need to integrate database operations into the DevOps infrastructure in order to reduce risk and deliver consistently reliable results is more important than ever.

In this presentation, we’ll use a real-world scenario involving both on-premises and cloud databases to show you how easy it is to implement an end-to-end agile approach to database management.

From monitoring to root-cause diagnostics, problem resolution, build automation, testing and data replication, we’ll demonstrate the significant contribution DBAs can make in the DevOps world.
