Oracle 12c/18c/19c upgrade

In this course, some of the new features added to the Oracle database in versions 12c, 18c, and 19c are discussed. Participants will learn how these features increase security, manageability, and performance. An important section of the course discusses the architectural changes as a result of the introduction of container and pluggable databases (ie. the Multitenant architecture). This course does not pretend to give a complete overview of all features new to Oracle 12c, 18c, and 19c - on the contrary: it only focuses on what is relevant for a typical Oracle environment. It does not prepare for Oracle upgrade certification.


Il n'y a pas de sessions publiques à ce moment. Nous organisons volontiers un cours en entreprise ou une session publique supplémentaire (en cas d'un nombre suffisant de participants). Intéressé? Veuillez contacter ABIS.
