Speaker Panel - Symposium 2006: David Kurtz, Graham Wood, James Morle, Cary Millsap, Tom Kyte, Jonathan Lewis and Christian AntogniniJoin the world's top Oracle performance analysts at the sixth annual Hotsos Symposium, the conference dedicated to issues of Oracle system performance. The Symposium will be held March 2–6, 2008 in Dallas, TX.

Why Is the Hotsos Symposium Different?

Hotsos Symposium is the only conference in the Americas devoted to Oracle system performance. The combination of topic focus, small audience size, and large speaker list make the Hotsos Symposium an unsurpassed networking opportunity.

Our first commitment is to quality. Hotsos Symposium features presenters who take great care to show you how to distinguish for yourself between reliable information and bad advice.

Keynote Speaker

The Hotsos Symposium 2008 keynote speaker is Cary Millsap. Throughout the 1990s, Cary helped fix performance problems at hundreds of sites as an Oracle Corporation employee. In 1999, he resigned as a VP within Oracle to co-found Hotsos. His focus ever since has been to create, refine, and evangelize the means by which regular IT personnel can optimize the speed of their Oracle-based application systems. Hotsos has provided thousands of Oracle customers with optimization tools and techniques that—at last—make system performance a measurable, manageable economic asset.

In this session, Cary reprises the message that started it all: the keynote he gave to kick off the first ever Hotsos Symposium in 2003. This year, he'll describe his vision of the past, the present, and the future of Oracle performance optimization. He'll explain why he believes that the future is bright for businesses that use Oracle systems and for many of the people who are responsible for designing, creating, and managing them. ...But only for the ones who are willing to change their perspective in one important way.
