Welcome, Maria Colgan!
Oracle Database 18c and the Autonomous Database
Maria Colgan, Oracle Corporation
We are entering a new era in database with the introduction of the first-ever Autonomous Database Cloud. Oracle Database is also switching to a new annual release model to support this new era, with Oracle Database 18c being the first release in this new model. But what does this mean to you and how will it change how you interact with the Oracle Database? This session provides a clear understanding of how our unique Autonomous Database Cloud works and illustrates how it will impact both DBAs and developers. It also provides a unique opportunity to get ahead of the curve and learn what's new in Oracle Database 18c directly from the Oracle Database development team.
