Are you curious about Oracle, but afraid to admit it? It is common for many DBA's to be biased to one database platform, but it has become more and more demanding of the database administrator to manage and have a firm knowledge of more than one in many environments. This session will introduce the SQL Server DBA to Oracle in a way that will meet their day to day challenges in a multi-platform database environment. Come learn about how Oracle and SQL Server are very similar, different and how to translate common concepts in SQL Server to Oracle database administration. No prior experience in Oracle is required and important features and concepts will be covered to assist the SQL Server DBA in incorporating Oracle into their database skill set.
