Flows for APEX 5.1.2 and beyond

Flows for APEX is an open source tool that enables modeling as well as execution of BPMN 2.0 processes in Oracle Application Express.

In this session I will give an overview of what it is all about and will outline what is in the works for the next release.

APEX Dynamic Action 21.1 Enhancements & Workshop

Today’s users have high expectations of modern, rich and responsive apps from their day to day exposures.

This is exactly what Dynamic actions are for and why they are so loved by us Dev’s and end users.

In this session we tack all corners of DA and how they can be utilized in your applications.
Things we will cover:
 – Triggering actions on uncommon page elements
 – Event bubbling
 – Passing data between your DA and PL/SQL
 – Debugging
 – Best/Bad practices

Magic of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Ansible

This session would cover the aspects of Infrastructure provisioning in OCI using Terraform on the fundamentals of Infrastructure as a code. Why automate OCI Provisioning? Real world Terraform OCI Examples Terraform Installation and Best practices Tip and Tricks on Infrastructure as a code.

Automate Database Provisioning for DevOps using Database-as-a-Service

Often DBAs want to allow self-service access to certain database operations. By doing so, the DBAs can free-up their own time while enabling others to do their jobs faster. Self-service access (SSA) is enabled right from the Oracle Enterprise Manager. The Self-Service Portal allows users to create new service instances (Databases or Pluggable Databases) based on Service Template configured by SSA administrators.
Additionally, Oracle Enterprise Manager Database as a Service Snap Clone is a ‘self-service’ solution for enabling rapid creation of space efficient clones for large, multi-terabyte databases. Snap Clone can improve the efficiency and agility of administrators and QA engineers while reducing storage-related CAPEX. Database as a Service Snap Clone allows administrators to create fully functional copies of databases using the copy-on-write (CoW) capabilities of the underlying storage layer. Users can request databases from the self-service console and have them provisioned within minutes instead of hours while keeping storage needs to a minimum.
This Session will cover database automation for devops:
1) self-service users such as developers and QA can leverage DBaaS (Database-as-a-Service) to quickly provision databases
2) create storage efficient thin clones for development purposes, and
3) chargeback/show back of resources used at the OS and DB level to ensure that proper accounting is kept for resource usage in your private cloud.

Oracle Database AWR/Statspack Workshop

When an application suddenly runs “slow” or when people start complaining about the “poor performance” of the database, there’s often some uncertainty in how to most quickly and most accurately determine the “root” cause of any such slowdown and effectively address any associated issues. One of the available tools in the DBA toolkit is the Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) Report, but many struggle to determine if it’s an appropriate report for the issue at hand and then how to read, decipher, and extract any useful information from the wealth of database diagnostic information available in AWR reports.

In this workshop, we explore a Tuning Methodology that helps Oracle professionals to both quickly and reliably determine if an AWR (or Statspack) report is the correct tool to use in determining the actual root causes of Oracle database performance issues.  Looking at several real-world scenarios, this workshop will show participants when to consider using AWR reports and then how to diagnose performance issues confidently and reliably by extracting the relevant details from such AWR reports.  Accurately determining the root causes of performance issues ensures the effectiveness and timeliness of any applied resolutions.

Participants will also be able to submit their own database AWR reports for analysis during the workshop and using the taught methodologies and techniques, identify any global performance issues within their own databases.

Ensure a Successful Oracle Cloud Migration

The move to enterprise applications such as Oracle Cloud can offer many benefits along with a myriad of challenges, many of which may be unknown until you are knee-deep into the project. Up to 80 percent of problems with enterprise systems are related to human error and unidentified technical issues. Before you get started, it is imperative to carefully plan and make sure you have the capability and visibility to measure user behaviour, workflows, interaction, adoption, and most importantly, how they can impact productivity and profitability.

In this webinar we are going to answer 5 critical questions you should ask before embarking on your Oracle Cloud project:

Where should we start?
How do we mitigate risk?
How do we know what processes and transactions need to be prioritized?
How can we maximize adoption?
How can we measure ROI?
This webinar will give you some answers to these questions along with showing you the benchmark data needed to get you started on your journey.

Accelerating Oracle workloads on VMware Hybrid Clouds with Vmware vSphere Performance Accelerators

Enabling and sustaining the highest possible performance along with continued application availability is a major goal for all mission critical applications in order to meet the demanding business SLA’s. Harnessing key features in the latest vSphere release 7.0 U1 including Persistent memory, Para Virtualized RDMA , 1GB Huge Pages, vNVME Controll ers, Improved Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS), Assignable Hardware, Refactored vMotion etc helps achieve those stringent business goals.

This session discusses accelerating Oracle Enterprise IO intensive workloads with vSphere 7.0 new features enhancing high availability, faster data loading etc and share key considerations and lessons learned.

Automate by Using Ansible

Ansible is an open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application-deployment tool enabling infrastructure as code, In this session i will show the Ansible how to use Ansible, this will include the basic and Live Demo of using Ansible , the Ansible components and how to automate for example my company work and the daily tasks

Information Life Cycle Management : Manage Exponential Data Growth

Exponential increases in data volumes are putting enterprise IT infrastructures under severe pressure – from a cost, performance, scalability and manageability perspective. Regulatory requirements are also changing how and why data is being retained, as many organizations are now required to retain and control much more information for much longer periods. Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) is the practice of applying policies for the effective management of information throughout its useful life. Oracle's Advanced Compression and Data Partitioning options helps organizations to deploy ILM policy and get benefits to improve the performance of enterprise applications, reduce infrastructure costs and provide governance, risk and compliance frameworks for enterprise data.
