While at Collaborate on Monday, Oracle has been offered a spot to highlight The Oracle Management Cloud. OMC is a suite of next-generation monitoring and management cloud services designed for heterogeneous environments, all empowered by Oracle’s own cloud! The first three OMC services (Application Performance Monitoring, Log Analytics and IT Analytics) were launched at OpenWorld 2015. Both Log Analytics and IT Analytics contain must-have capabilities for DBAs. This is the only OMC session that will be available at Collaborate and it’s a not to miss session with an all-star cast to present on it. Manning the slides will be Brian Hengen and Yuri Grinshteyn, while Courtney Llamas and I will be sharing our expertise during the demonstrations.
We’ll be covering how to grapple with large environment resource usage, identifying what really needs your time allocated to it (versus what you can just let go!) and how you can help your manager manage your infrastructure better. We all know how much damage false assumptions can cause to your ability to respond to priorities and demands. IT Analytics has the intelligence you need built in, so no more guesswork based on capacity planning scripts, Excel spreadsheets and graphing to prove to the business that you have a handle on where your energy is most needed.
We’ll also discuss how to extract valuable insight from mountains of logs. We DBAs know how valuable log data is but we also know how voluminous it is. Having it reduced to human-scale and correlate seamlessly with the analytics discussed above is an impressive feat and you’ll see how powerful log data can be when displayed this way for the business. No more “going down rabbit holes” trying to digest log data on one server, matching it to output from a user interface from a tool on another server and finally verifying that it actually had anything to do with the actual problem you were investigating in the first place.
So ensure you’ve added this session to your Collaborate schedule on Monday, at 10:15 in room Palm B. An impressive group of folks from Oracle have made sure it’s going to be an interesting, informative and empowering session on the Oracle Management Cloud. I have a feeling the room may be packed, so make sure to register beforehand!
