    Wednesday, July 12, 2017 - Multitenant Day

    • Multitenant Delivers Isolation and Agility with Economies of Scale
      11:00am - 12:00pm Central Time
      Isolation and agility with economies of scale: That is a very good slogan to summarize the requirements of a Cloud Database architecture. Economies of scale may be achieved through consolidation. But without delivering isolation, nobody wants to consolidate. Agility enables technology teams to support an organization’s requirements to innovate. This is what we deliver with Multitenant in 12.2. And this is the overarching theme of this presentation.
      Featured Speaker: Patrick Wheeler, Oracle Corporation
