Your host during the morning is:

8:00am  (CEST)             
       How to have 42 hours per day?
        speaker: Heli Helskyaho

Heli Helskyaho is an Oracle ACE Director, an Oracle Groundbreaker Ambassador, the CEO of Miracle Finland, and an acclaimed author and speaker. She’s also a teacher at the University of Helsinki, a PhD student, the mother of two sons and a wife of one husband, an aspiring cook and an avid reader. While having so many different priorities doesn’t make life easy or organized, Heli has learned to thrive on change, and to enjoy the imbalance that fills her days. In this session, Heli will share how she ended up choosing a career in technology. She’ll also share how she defines success in her current role, manages a constantly shifting and competing set of priorities. Finally, Heli will share some advice based on her experiences in the workforce and answer your questions on how to plan for success in a rapidly changing field


9:00am (CEST)            
        The lost art of Physical Design – from Bit Bucket to Insane Performance
        speaker: Connor McDonald

It’s never been easier to launch into building your applications on the Oracle Database. Just a few clicks and your Oracle Database is ready to go. But when those applications we build become the overnight sensation that we always dreamt about, it is often the case that the schemas we designed on a paper napkin and implemented on day 1 might not live up to the flexibility, maintainability and performance demands the database can offer at the very moment we need it most – when more and more customers are clamouring for our amazing app! This session walks through the tools to rapid prototype and deploy your database schema, and how to evolve that design to handle increasing demands over time.


10:00am  (CEST)     
        High Availability for Standard Edition 2 – the current situation
        speakers: Markus Flechtner

After Oracle had announced the desupport of the RAC option for the Standard Edition 2 database for version 19c in April 2019, there was a big outcry among the supporters of this “small” variant of the Oracle database. In late autumn, the words from Redwood Shore were: “We heard you”. Since the release update 19.7 “Standard Edition High Availability” (SEHA”) is now available. What is feature about, what restrictions have to be taken into account and what are the high availability options that Oracle provides for SE2 “out of the box”?

The talk covers:
1. Standard Edition High Availability (SEHA)
2. Using “Refreshable PDB” for High Availability
3. Combining both features to “SEMAA”


11:00am  (CEST)             
        Who Wants to Become an IT Architect? A Look at the Bigger Picture
        speaker: Lucas Jellema

The movie The Matrix made it clear: The Architect is powerful. How to be(come) and IT architect? What do you do, what do you need to know, is it fun and why? Using real world examples, core principles and useful tools, this session introduces the subtle art of designing and realizing flexible IT architectures. Taking a step back to get and create an overview, frequently asking why to get to the real intention, bringing aspects such as cost, scale, time and change and business strategy into the design and bridging the gap between business owners, process managers and technical specialists. One way to define the responsibility of an IT architect. In this session, we will discuss what is expected of the architect and what you need to do for that and what you could use to get it done. How do you get started as an architect, how to grow in that role? We discuss a number of real life architectural challenges and solution design. And discuss a number of architecture principles, patterns, and powers to apply. Never stop programming – but perhaps rise to the architecture challenge too.


12:00pm  (CEST)             
       Oracle Database 19c: Managing Resources with Oracle Database Resource Manager
        speaker: ARSALAN Dehghani S.

Oracle Resource Manager(ORM) provides the most flexible method for managing system resources across databases. Using the Oracle Database Resource Manager (ODRM), database operations can be prioritized by aligning the system resources to the business objectives and priorities of the enterprise. This session discusses how to effectively use and deploy the ORM features, and also, enhancements to the existing ORM features. Attend this session to learn the best practices for using the elements of the Resource Manager include resource consumer groups, resource plans, resource plan directives, active session pool mechanism, limit CPU utilization at the database and server levels, track runaway queries and manage the mapping of sessions to resource consumer groups, and monitor Resource Manager statistics.

Your host during the afternoon is:

1:30pm  (CEST)             
       Backoffice system re-engineering- key success factors – case study
        speaker: Monika Lewandowska

During the night, Back-office systems have to process tons of records and calculate millions of values. Systems usually are very busy during the night. But is the night long enough to do such hard work? The end of day processes in the back-office systems can take several hours. Record holders are approaching even 24 hours!
In the session, I will discuss a successful system re-engineering project that involved gathering information on the current system and analyzing requirements, and transforming them into the system of tomorrow. I will walk through the main process I went through: the requirements, design, and PL/SQL code, and the changes that allowed us to shorten the processing time. Not only did we improve a single process but the entire system processing time was reduced from several hours to several minutes.
Come to this session and find out what were the key factors to achieving success!


3:00pm (CEST)            
        What is Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Why You Should Care
        speaker: Mia Urman

Many companies are turning to robotic process automation (RPA) to streamline operations and lower costs. With it, businesses can automate mundane rule-based tasks, enabling users to devote time to higher-value work. Robotic Process Automation proves most beneficial on complex and routine data entry systems, such as those found in Oracle E-Business Suite/Forms. In this session we will do an introduction to Robotic Process Automation, its features and benefits and close with a demo followed by Questions and Answers
In this session attendees will learn:
● What is RPA and how can it bring value to businesses
● How can you automate common use cases in your Oracle Forms/EBS applications cost-effectively
● The features of RPA to bring efficiency and speed to your manual Oracle tasks


4:30pm  (CEST)     
        Kubernetes and Microservices with Oracle Database
        speakers: Wei Hu

Kubernetes and Microservices are important models for developing and deploying applications. In this talk, the audience will have an opportunity to hear directly from Oracle Development about these two related areas. We will describe the new features being released with the latest versions of the Oracle database to natively support containers and Kubernetes.

Then we will look at building microservices applications in general – with and without Kubernetes. We will examine the key microservices architectural patterns such as Event Sourcing, Transactional Outbox, Idempotent, etc. and show how to use Oracle database capabilities to effectively each of these patterns. As part of this talk, we will also give a sneak peek at what is coming soon from Oracle to support both Kubernetes and microservices.
