Best 12c New Features: Striving Towards 18c/19c

This webinar will focus on some of the best 12c & 12cR2 new features that should be investigated for use for tuning, development, and administration. Some of you may already be on 12c or just moving there. Some of you may be on 12cR2 or 18c, but haven’t had the time to investigate or implement some of the great features.


This webinar is part 1 of a 3 part webinar series, taking you from 12c to 19c.


The features we’ll cover for 12c and 12cR2 are not only central for effective database administration tasks; they’re also the key to helping application developers write better code to leverage built-in efficiencies that 12c and 12cR2 provide.

We’ll provide simple examples (such as the new FETCH FIRST query capabilities, and a quick example using pluggable databases) to show the basic functionality of these new features so that you can adapt it for your unique environment.

Finally, we’ll also look ahead at some of the newest features already available in 18c/19c so that you can prepare your 12cR2 database for upgrading to those releases when the time comes.

You can’t afford to miss this one!
