OOW 2020 - London Calling: Autonomous Session Picks

DSP-Explorer are really looking forward to Oracle OpenWorld London 2020 - last year was a success and I’m hoping that 2020 will build on that.  We're a Platinum sponsor of OpenWorld and will have two sessions, one on ADW and another on Customer Cloud Stories…more details coming soon.

There are lots of sessions at OOW 2020 and so we thought we would use this blog post to highlight a few of interest.

We’re going to start with Autonomous Database as we’ve been doing a lot of work in this area, both internally and with customers. With that in mind, take a minute to check out these sessions...

Oracle Autonomous Database: Looking Under the Hood [SES1143-LON]
Oracle Autonomous Database Strategy and Roadmap [SES1141-LON]


Oracle’s flagship product has pretty much removed most of the undifferentiated heavy lifting of a DBA’s day-to-day activities, enabling them to focus on the most important thing: DATA.  However it’s always interesting to look under the hood of these technologies and look into what’s coming. 

The rate of change in Oracle Cloud took off in 2019 and I don’t expect that to change in 2020, so it will be interesting to see what’s happening with Autonomous and how it will evolve. 


If you’re thinking that a DBA’s role will be removed by Autonomous, you should check out the two sessions below – they will hopefully help you see that the role of the DBA will forever be evolving, to match the growing capabilities of new technologies.  It’s also worth seeing how you can start to dip your toes into Machine Learning with ADW.

The Changing Role of the DBA [LHT1021-LON]


If I may be so bold: if you’ve seen the sessions above and are thinking ‘autonomous looks interesting’, and you’ve also seen how you as a DBA might be working with it…then why not check out this next session to get started?
