2016 Keynote Presentation
Knowledge Is Power: 15 Years of SQL Tuning from coe_xplain to SQLTXplain to SQLd360
Carlos Sierra & Mauro Pagano, Accenture Enkitec Group
Confucius once said: “Life is a learning experience, only if you learn.” From legendary coe_xplain.sql, which saved the day for so many DBAs in Oracle ancient times, to modern SQLd360, which is getting rapidly adopted by DBAs and Developers today, the presenters certainly understand what it takes to overcome database challenges. From filling the holes some legacy Oracle products had to automating a lengthy diagnostics gathering process for SQL Tuning, they learned not only technical intricacies but also equally important aspects of human interaction.
They’ll share the most memorable wins as they developed these invaluable tools and the biggest challenges they faced. Come learn what the motivation was to create (and maintain) these tools. There was certainly a need for these tools for both customers and support, but how did that trigger this multi-year effort, commitment, and assurance that they remain free? Don’t miss this keynote presentation on the history of these tools and the stories from those who created them.
