RMOUG Training Days: February 9-11, 2016

Join us on Wednesday, February 10, for our keynote presentation by Carlos Sierra and Mauro Pagano, both of Accenture Enkitec Group.

Knowledge Is Power: 15 Years of SQL Tuning from coe_xplain to SQLTXplain to SQLd360

Carlos Sierra is a speaker, author, mentor, Oracle Community contributor, and a consultant with Accenture Enkitec Group.

Mauro Pagano is a database performance engineer, presenter, developer, active member of the Oracle Community, and a consultant with Accenture Enkitec Group.

Confucius once said: “Life is a learning experience, only if you learn.” Join Mauro and Carlos as they discuss the history of how these tools came about. From legendary coe_xplain.sql, which saved the day for so many DBAs in Oracle ancient times, to modern SQLd360, which is getting rapidly adopted by DBAs and Developers today, Carlos and Mauro certainly understand what it takes to overcome database challenges.

From filling the holes some legacy Oracle products had to automating a lengthy diagnostics gathering process for SQL Tuning, they learned not only technical intricacies but also equally important aspects of human interaction.

Carlos and Mauro will discuss what they’ve learned during their invaluable 15-year journey that brought them to SQLd360.  They’ll share with the audience the most memorable wins as they developed these invaluable tools and the biggest challenges they faced. Come learn what was the motivation to create these tools (along with maintaining). There was certainly a need for these tools for both customers and support, but how did that trigger this multi-year effort, commitment, and assurance that they remain free? Don’t miss this astounding keynote on the history of these tools and the stories from those who created them.
