She is the CEO of Miracle Finland Oy and an Ambassador for EOUC (EMEA Oracle Users Group Community). Heli holds a Master’s degree (Computer Science) from the University of Helsinki and she has specialized in databases. At the moment she is working on her doctoral studies, researching and teaching at the University of Helsinki. Her research areas cover Big Data, multi-model databases, schema discovery and methods and tools for utilizing semi-structured data for decision making.
Heli has been working in IT since 1990. She has held several positions but every role has always included databases and database design. Heli believes that good database design and good documentation reduces performance problems and makes solving them easier and we do not disagree with this. A great APEX application starts with a great database design.

Appart of being an Oracle ACE Director and a very frequent speaker at many conferences, she is the author of Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler for Database Design Mastery (Oracle Press 2015) and a co-author of Real World SQL and PL/SQL: Advice from the Experts (Oracle Press 2016).

Having such a great background, we had to ask Heli for more than one session. However, today we’ll be highlighting only one of those sessions, titled: “Design your databases straight to the Cloud”. Here follows a sneak peek on this session:

Everybody is talking about Cloud. How does the Cloud change my work as a database designer? What should I know and what new to learn? In this session, we will talk about these concerns and design a small database to the cloud using Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler and Oracle SQL Developer.
