Fill the Glass – New Webinar Series by Cary Millsap

PhotoAccenture Enkitec Group is excited to announce a new webinar series hosted by Cary Millsap. Find details below on the series and the first webinar featuring Karen Morton.

PhotoCary Millsap is a developer, teacher, writer, and consultant who has been a part of the Oracle ecosystem since 1989. His new webinar series about Oracle and related technologies is going to be little different than the usual hello-slide-show-Q&A-bye routine. These shows are going to include conversation. Our aim is to bring the technology to life. Our guests will of course talk about the problems they’re solving and how they solve them, but our conversations will include discussions about their ideas, their motives, their tools, …even their careers. Cary likes to find the twist, a way of perceiving a situation that you might not have thought of. Join us to learn, improve your career, and have some fun.

In this webinar, Martin Bach will explain how implementing a cross-platform incremental backup in conjunction with cross-platform transportable tablespaces makes this possible.
