ToonKoppelaars, Consulting Member of Technical Staff
Toon has been part of the Oracle eco-system since 1987. He is currently a member of Oracle's Real-World Performance team. The RWP-team troubleshoots application performance issues in and around the DBMS. The way applications currently use the DBMS, is often at the root of these performance issues. Prior to joining the RWP team, Toon has been mainly involved in database application development. His special interests are: architecting applications for performance and scalability, database design, and business rules / constraints modeling (see his idea on SQL Assertions here https://community.oracle.com/ideas/13028). He is a long-time champion of the Smart Database paradigm, i.e. using the database as a processing engine, and not just as a persistence layer.
