Breakfast with Connor McDonald: Oracle Database 21c, 23c, the cloud and beyond - Why? Why Not?" with Connor McDonald

Often, the new features in a new database version pertain to the “big ticket” functionality areas of availability, performance, management, technology shifts and so forth. But for many, often it is the tiny little enhancements or tweaks to existing functionality that make all the difference. As far back as database versions go, it is the little things that have developers and DBAs singing from the rooftops. Column rename in in 8i, MERGE in 9i, virtual columns in 11g, FETCH FIRST in 12c – the list goes on.
This session looks at the Oracle Database roadmap to reveal our continuing focus on making life easier for DBAs and Developers. We’ll look at what has arrived in 21c to help customers, and look out into the future at even more enhancements that are planned. These improvements are going to boost your productivity and make the database easier to use than ever!We’ll also take a considered look at whether you should be upgrading your on-premise databases at all, and what cloud options are available on OCI when it comes to choosing a database version.

For everyone who joins in person, you will be able to listen to “Connor unplugged” … don’t miss this opportunity!
