Voyage to Oracle Visual Builder Cloud
Oracle ACE DirectorKaren Cannell,  TH Technology
Date: Monday, September 16
Time: 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: TBD

Hear lessons learned on a voyage to Oracle’s newest low code RAD tool, Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS). Is development really drag and drop? How much of a JavaScript expert (or not) do I need to be? What are the best use cases for VBCS vs APEX or some other dev tool? What about mobile apps? How do I get my data there? Isn’t it expensive? What investment do I really need to benefit from VBCS for production applications? Was this voyage worth the effort, and can VBCS make a difference for my cloud investment?  Attend and learn about a long-time Oracle APEX developer’s adventure into VBCS.

Using the Dynamic Oracle Performance Analytics Framework 
Oracle ACERoger Cornejo, GlaxoSmithKline
Date: Tuesday, September 17
Time: 5:15 - 6:00 PM
Location: TBD

In this session learn how to use an innovative dynamic performance analytics approach that relies on big data and advanced analytical techniques to analyze and improve Oracle Database performance. The easy-to-use approach is a step-change paradigm shift away from traditional methods that typically rely on a small subset of metrics (which may cause you to miss important system behavior) or the difficult task of pinpointing the issue through an Automatic Workload Repository report. The dynamic performance analytics process targets the most relevant metrics for the problem interval, which results in event-focused and actionable insight/intelligence on the performance issue, and helps you draw impactful and focused performance improvement conclusions.
