It seemed so simple—migrate a relatively small legacy database from DB2 to Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse. Nobody knew the dark secrets this database was hiding before the SOW was signed and the project was underway, but by then it was too late! Follow along as a well-planned project grows from unassuming and ordinary into a monster, devouring everything in its path and tossing aside timelines! A twisting tale, full of wrong turns and peril, heroes and villains, challenge, failure, ultimately ending with... Wait, you didn't think I'd give away the ending, did you?

This session is not a reference or a how-to. It's more of a what-not-to-do, reflecting and laughing (in hindsight) at a series of unfortunate circumstances and mistakes. It's a set of lessons in resilience and determination. It's about overcoming technical obstacles and human objections, and leveraging the tools and features in OCI so they all lived... Well, let's not spoil things!

We will look under the hood of a famous monolith: How does the Oracle Database really work? The RDBMS has to keep many promises to ensure consistent transactional operations. Most of them are found in the acronym "ACID".

We will hear explanations to terms like A in Archivelog or Alert Log or ASM, H as in High Availability, M like Multitenant, R like Redo Log, S as in spfile, T like Tablespace, and U like Undo.

The death of Oracle Forms has been greatly exaggerated. Despite 2 decades of development, Forms is still the backbone of thousands of mission-critical applications worldwide. But where do our tried and true Forms stand while all systems are undergoing a user experience revolution or moving to the cloud? In this session, we will show how Oracle Forms is now a full member of Oracle’s cloud, mobile, and even Chat ecosystem. We will review the 4 ways that you can extend your existing Forms investments to the cloud, including:

-“Lift-and-Shift” your Forms servers to Cloud Servers - OCI
-Extending your applications using Oracle’s rapid development tool Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS)
-Leveraging existing business logic through Chat interfaces using Digital Assistant cloud service
-Doing DevOps using Developer Cloud Service.

The answer to how to bring your Forms into the next generation will be revealed during this session. Along with live demos and Q&A.

This talk is for database and information security professionals.

The database holds the crown jewels of the organization; however, the infosec security teams have little understanding of working of the database and database developers, designers, and DBAs have little understanding of security concepts. I get it, we get pressure from the top and the users to deliver a system with little time or budget to apply to database security. In this talk, we are going to take the 10,000 meter view of the database and look at the attack surface, attack vectors, and how to mitigate those attacks. At the end of the presentation, developers, designers, and DBAs will have action items they can take back to their shop and start improving security.
