A Quantum Leap: Exploring the Utilities of the Future

Session ID: GEN6468

Has the utilities sector lost its competitive technology edge? While electric, gas, and water utilities each found their beginnings in brilliant technology inventions, it is innovation rather than invention that is going to pave the way for the future utility. Today's utility business model is being undermined both by big bang disruption and by more gradual, compressive disruption, causing a monumental shift in the dynamics of the industry that can neither be avoided nor ignored. In this pull-no-punches keynote session, hear about the challenges utilities are facing, the necessity of applying new innovation to the issues, and the resultant, unprecedented opportunities for thriving, sustainable new business models for the future.

DBAs Versus Autonomous Databases

Session ID: PRO1072

Databases are going to the cloud sooner or later. What does this mean for DBAs? Accenture conducted a battery of tests looking at Oracle Databases in the cloud. Nearly half the world’s data runs on Oracle Databases, making them a valuable focal point for such tests. The load on those vital databases continues to grow: with 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being generated every day, the performance and scalability of the database in the cloud is increasingly important. This session explores in detail the results of these texts, the importance of autonomous databases, Oracle Database 18c, and the new trends in Oracle Database technologies.

Multilanguage Continuous Delivery Pipelines with Jenkins, Docker, and OpenShift

In the brave new world of microservices, the need for polyglot solutions is growing, making it harder to standardize continuous delivery pipelines across many different languages and runtimes.
