Greetings, At techExchange 2023, there was an excellent presentation on running Oracle on Power vesus x86.  It covered awareness of how Oracle does licensing and how you can achieve savings by running it on Power.  However, I thought we would have access to the decks presented, so now I am trying to find this class via the agenda.  Is anyone familiar with this area?  Do you know the individual who presented?  Lastly, where can we revisit the session catalog, maybe I can find it out that way.
