Discuss the features on 18c that are important to the DBA and/or Developer.  Discuss the new Autonomous Database and what that means for the DBA and/or Developer.  Look at the future ahead for Tech and Oracle.

Oracle Database 18c will be the world's first autonomous database. It will be self-driving, self-tuning, self-scaling, self-securing and self-repairing. This session will have a closer look at those features that build the foundation for the self-driving and self-repairing nature of Oracle Database 18c, as those features are meant to enable the database to meet user-defined…

The Oracle Autonomous Health Framework (AHF) is a major enhancement in ensuring database performance and availability introduced with the Oracle Database 12c Rel. 2. This session will explain and demonstrate how incorporating applied machine learning techniques in Oracle Cluster Health Advisor, Hang Manager and Trace File Analyzer, autonomously and automatically preserves availability SLAs especially in consolidated or cloud database deployments.
