I work and live in Oslo, Norway. I often work as an Oracle DBA, on Linux preferrably, but when I can, I spend time looking into development, data science, and integration.

I’ve spent quite some time in the Oracle community, and enjoy connecting with other people. Travel is fun, especially if I can combine it with work and meet challenges in other cultures.

Optimization aka tuning has been one of my longest standing interests. Frequently the database gets all the blame, but the Oracle database is well instrumented. In normal words that means it has a lot of runtime information about what is going on. So there is usually a pretty good chance to find where the error or bottleneck is. Even if it is outside the database, which happens often – 9 out 10 cases are related to wrong logic, or just a badly designed application – it can show you where the problem is.

Enesi? Well, that is just my surname reversed. I also like prime numbers. According to this link it is a name of African origin that means a good person. In Maasai it means doctor. I suppose I can strive to be a good person who can heal some of your database problems.

From February 2021 I will be on my own. If you have a relevant challenge, do get in touch, you can reach me at oyvind@enesi.no
