 How to Figure Out Why Your Query Is Taking Forever...In Less Than 30 Seconds! 
 Kaley Crum,
 Riceland Foods


Anyone who’s familiar with tuning SQL knows that you need to get the execution plan for a query. But once you’ve got an execution plan, what do you do with it? Everyone understands that an execution plan is important for diagnosing, but almost no one knows how to answer questions like, “Which step in the execution plan is taking the longest? Which hardware component (CPU, memory, disk) is causing my query’s bottleneck? Is my parallel query making good use of its resources, or are they being wasted?” If you have 30 seconds and the Oracle Tuning and Diagnostic Pack license for your database, you can find the answer to these questions—and more!

 The Future of EPM Reporting – MR
 Megha Chopra
and Mohit Jain, Genpact


*This webinar is eligible for one (1) CPE credit. To receive the credit attendees must be a Full (paid) ODTUG member, attend the entire webinar and answer all poll questions that will pop up on-screen during the webinar, and fill out the evaluation form (with your name) that will be sent out immediately after the webinar.

Reporting is the final destination of converting raw data into information to run your business. MR is going to be the future of reporting as FR is going away. However, companies that are on FR should upgrade to MR. This is not a quick and easy decision, especially if your organization has built reports extensively in FR. But thanks to the flexibility of MR, it does allow auto-migration to an extent.

The learning objectives for this session are: 

  1. Learn about management reporting components
  2. Differences in point of view
  3. What features are not supported in MR?
  4. Learn about auto-migration of objects
  5. How to migrate FR to MR

Are you also looking forward to an FR to MR migration? Join us on this webinar to explore these topics, some possible strategies/solutions, and how they impact you!
