Cloud Wars: Who Will Win the Battle for IT's Future?

Image
Attend the free webinar by Oracle's former Chief Communications Officer Bob Evans and learn how to prepare a better cloud strategy for your organization.
As cloud computing surges into the mainstream and becomes the backbone of enterprise IT, hundreds of cloud vendors are fighting for customer dollars. Which ones are framing their cloud services in terms of what businesses want and need, versus pounding their chests over how wonderful their technology is? Will the big incumbents such as IBM, SAP and Oracle be able to pivot to the cloud with enough capability and urgency to meet the intense requirements of modern digital businesses? Which top cloud vendors are positioning cloud in a silo, and which are blending cloud vision with AI, cognitive, machine learning, and more? This discussion will address these and other high-priority issues for IT buyers and decision-makers. Registration is free but space is limited. Sign up now.

Agile Development with PL/SQL

Agile Development gives us the ability to work on multiple features at the same time and change which ones to ship at any point in time, quickly. This might be challenging for PL/SQL teams to accomplish, to say the least. This short video shows how Gitora, version control tool for PL/SQL, helps Oracle PL/SQL developers solve this problem.

Smart Database Architecture for Software Development

We are incredibly excited to announce that the amazing Toon Koppelaars from Oracle Real World Performance Team is hosting our next webinar: Smart Database Architecture for Software Development. Register at this link.





About the Webinar

Is the database a processing engine or a persistence layer? In this presentation we'll first go through a bit of history demonstrating how the database has been used in the past 30 years: at times it was a processing engine, and at other times it was just a persistence layer. 

Having witnessed many application development projects, we are convinced that the database ought to be used as a processing engine. The persistence layer approach, where all business logic is implemented outside the database has serious drawbacks in the areas of initial application development, ongoing maintenance, and most notably in the area of performance and scalability.

We'll discuss these drawbacks, in particular the last one: We'll debunk once and for all that movin…
