Let's Migrate!

In this workshop we'll hear compelling reasons to upgrade and migrate your databases to the cloud. We'll also receive helpful migration tips and techniques if your business needs require you to keep your data on-premises.

Additionally we're bringing in a non-Oracle speaker from MongoDB because these days, we all need to be well-rounded!
