Oracle Training Day – Austin, TX

Tuesday, Nov 14, 2017, 8:00 AM - 1:00PM








Who Should Attend?

This highly informative event is not for everyone, but it will certainly benefit the following:

For DBA's
As database administrators, you are the keepers of one of the organization’s most valuable assets, data. Without data that is organized, filtered quickly, reported on and kept safe, the organization suffers. How does this impact your responsibilities? What software features have been developed to assist with this ever increasing requirement of collecting and processing more and more data?  How can you leverage your Oracle platform and Oracle hardware as a tool to maintain the goals of agility and keeping costs in check?

For Developers and Architects

As Architects and Developers, you are often the bridge between data and presenting that information in a meaningful way.

In many cases, multiple enterprise solutions such as PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, and other installed enterprise solutions result in silos of data. In other cases, the functionality of those solutions may not meet all of the unique requirements of the organization. Custom built solutions can fill these gaps, meet unique requirements, automate data collection and reporting and get information in the hands of decision makers faster and with less risk.

For Business Systems Managers
Decisions are based on the reported information you receive. Is the information timely enough? Are you confident you have a single source of truth?  Does it highlight trends? Would better decisions be reached if more unique requirements were filled? What is possible tomorrow?
