    Dell Webcast: It’s Time to Get Agile
    May 27, 2016, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CT

    With business driving the increasing adoption of agile methodologies such as Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment, the need for agile database tooling has become even more important. In many companies, the database development lifecycle has become the bottleneck in an otherwise agile delivery process. As such, database professionals are under increasing pressure to shorten delivery timelines even further, only increasing the stakes within an already high-stress, risk-averse environment. With little room for error in an environment where downtime can cost millions of dollars, the need for an agile database deployment process that can reduce risk and deliver consistently reliable results is more important than ever. 

    Based on research discussions with customers, this session will highlight the shortcomings of the traditional waterfall method and identify the typical challenges we see organizations have in attempting to automate their database development lifecycle. This presentation will discuss how Toad for Oracle addresses the following challenges: 

    • Simplifying the use of version control 
    • Coding standards collaboration 
    • Automating PL/SQL unit testing 
    • Automating PL/SQL code reviews 
    • Effective management reporting 
    • Integrating database development with CI 
    The session will conclude with a summary of what’s coming in our next release of Toad for Oracle. 

    Speaker quote: 
    At the end of this session, you should be much better informed as to how to solve some of the real problems associated with bringing Oracle database development into your existing Continuous Integration workflow.

    VMware SIG Webcast: Zero Downtime Migrations Using Logical Replication Tools
    June 21, 2016, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT

    Upgrading hardware, software, versions of the database or versions of the application are all facts of life.  Moving to the Cloud is now happening at an increasing rate.  Too often companies put these migrations off because they can't afford downtime. Learn how to do a migration with zero or limited downtime using logical replication products.  We will discuss how logical replication works, move through how a migration happens and then talk about some of the major roadblocks to avoid.

    OEM SIG Webcast: Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c/13c - Best Practices in Design and Deployment for High Availability and Disaster Recovery 
    June 27, 2016, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT

    OEM has evolved from the early days of just a database monitoring tool to being a full scale data center monitoring and management tool with its embedded RAC and Data Guard aware features.  Like any application, you need proper planning and best practices to ensure a successful implementation.  When additional enterprise features like High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recoverability (DR) are needed, more detailed planning and right configuration are required.  That way the key components of OEM can be properly integrated and those key components include Oracle Management Server (OMS), Oracle Management Repository (OMR) and the Oracle Management Agent (OMA).  Basically if you start with a solid infrastructure, the rest of the feature implementations like Cloud and Lifecycle Management will also be successful.  The OEM implementation with HA and DR features is a Level 4 architecture with multi-site capability and High Availability deployment at every layer.  Though monitoring is the core functionality of the OEM, many additional features like performance tuning to patching and provisioning can be used to the full extent when best practices are followed at each stage of the implementation.  In summary, OEM can become a de facto standard for enterprise-wide monitoring when properly configured and deployed.

    Key Learnings

    • Step by Step OEM Implementation and Configuration
    • Implementation and Configuration Best Practices
    • Extending OEM for High Availability and Disaster Recoverability

    Quote from Speaker

    If you want to modernize your enterprise Oracle database monitoring and management, Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) is the de facto standard because OEM is the only monitoring tool with embedded RAC and Data Guard aware features.  Most companies these days need High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities for their businesses.  When an Oracle database with HA and DR capabilities needs to be monitored to the full extent, OEM is the only tool which can provide an end-to-end monitoring.

    The audience can learn on how they can deploy and configure the OEM step by step by following the best practices.  The audience can also expect how they can extend the OEM with High Availability features and Disaster Recovery capabilities.  When a critical or tier-1 application High Availability database needs to be monitored fully, OEM also needs HA and DR features.  In summary, the audience can expect deep-dive into the OEM implementation and configuration aspects.
