Steve Daheb to Deliver Oracle Keynote
Steve Daheb, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud, takes the main stage at COLLABORATE 19 on Monday, April 8 to discuss how companies move beyond the questions of what cloud technologies are and why they should be using these technologies to the more important question of, "How do I get there?" Oracle supports multiple migration paths and services to facilitate moves to cloud from wherever your starting point might be. Steve Daheb guides this exploration of how our organizations can upgrade to an autonomous, AI-based future today. Add to Your Agenda
Automation is Not the Enemy: Using a DevOps Mindset to Do More of What You Love
The technology sector has a new favorite buzzword: automation. From database processing to application testing, there’s not a software product, cycle or service that’s not touting the benefits of automation, but for the Oracle professional who has heard the promises of these kinds of improvements before, there’s always some trepidation: “Doesn’t automation mean that some of my job is gone?” “What happens if we miss something during testing?” “There’s no time to implement all of this time-saving automation!”
Following a global call for presentations and thorough vetting, voting and curation by volunteer leaders within the Oracle community, COLLABORATE 19 is pleased to release its detailed educational agenda. Participants can pinpoint the education sessions most relevant to their personal and organizational interests by filtering the agenda by business goals or by product families, as well as by keyword, speaker or company. To save a personalized agenda, simply create a profile and log in.
COLLABORATE 19 will be here before you know it! The conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas at the Henry B. González Convention Center from April 7-11.
