I am very curious about how to solve or correlate issues and so I like to call myself "The Detective". For me to be a detective at work, I use data. For every new case (in my case, every new issue), I must go into a field to try to understand what happened, what data do we have for it, how it works, and then to massage the data until I understand it, and then finally take some actions, inturn acquiring all the knowledge of the field without being a specialist.

Database Observability & You

Do you feel like you have thousands of performance issues you are asked to fix and don't know which is the most important to do next? Do you ever wish you could catch or validate your impact to the system before end users notice it?

Regardless of your tech stack, having the data to make informed decisions and understand impact is a key to success.
Finding metrics and building out ways to alert the system owners of these problems is something that we've looked into and built up a solid process and tool set within the database tier.
This talk will delve into tooling, process, and automation that we have built up, utilized, and implemented across multiple clients to aid in catching performance, functional, or implementation issues before our end users even know about it.

In this talk, we will touch on the following items
* What tooling is available from Oracle to proactively catch issues and prioritize them
* What tooling have we built on top of Oracle to be utilized
* How can teams utilize the existing toolset
* What success stories do we have at existing clients
* What platforms are available for teams to build off of to succeed

This talk is intended for anyone who interacts with databases from either a development or system perspective (Oracle in particular).
