Geek Sync Webcast : The Universe of Oracle Indexing

The Oracle database offers many different types of indexing strategies and thus index types. Today’s Oracle DBA needs to be aware of all such indexing options and when each might make sense to apply.

Join IDERA and Bert Scalzo as he explores Oracle Indexing. This session will cover every common Oracle index type, including: b-tree, bitmap, bitmap join, reverse order, function based, invisible, partitioned, global prefix, local prefix and index organized tables (IOT’s). It’s very likely that you are only taking advantage of a small subset of these index types. This is a special Geek Sync you will not want to miss!
