Channeling Oracle OpenWorld 2017

There were a lot of announcements at OpenWorld 2017. ACE Director Alumni Dan Morgan will channel Larry Ellison, Mark Hurd, Thomas Kurian, and other Oracle leadership to help provide a distilled version of what was said, how it will impact our careers, the organizations we work for, and the future of our industry. The focus will be on the newly announced Oracle Autonomous Database and what it means to DBAs, our industry and our careers.

Security for Oracle DBAs and Developers

As an industry we are losing almost every important security battle. We are in danger of losing the war. Our employers are focusing on the periphery and not the core of the problem, trying to buy products to solve problems that cannot be solved by buying another product. As DBAs we not only are not solving the problem … we don’t even know where it is.

This presentation will focus on how to solve issues such as the Experian break-in with the tools you already own and control. As well as the full range of security-related issues that must be understood and addressed to both protect data in an Oracle Database and protect your organization from your Oracle Database.
