Just add a number. Each day is 1, so to add an hour:

SELECT sysdate+1/24 FROM dual;

or a minute:

SELECT sysdate+1/1440 FROM dual;

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
