Presented by Oracle ACE Director Rich Niemiec 


Best 18c New Features: A Painless Transition

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


The features we’ll cover for 18c 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 18c provides. In this session, we’ll offer simple examples, such as a how to leverage the new PDB Snapshot Carousel, to show the basic functionality of the new features.

We’ll also look ahead at some of the more compelling features of 19c so you’ll be ready to implement them when it’s time to upgrade to that release. Finally, we’ll review lessons we’ve learned when upgrading databases to 18c while simultaneously mitigating the risk of degraded database and application performance after the upgrade is completed.
