Oracle Learning Streams

Five years ago the only training that we could get was the in-person, classroom kind. The only options were whether you went to a partner or Oracle University, and whether travelled to the trainer’s venue or they came to your office. This type of training had some drawbacks, in that you had to commit to a specific week or set of days – often a long time in advance – and you had to take the (more...)

Becoming a Fusion HCM Implementation Specialist

In my quest to become a rounded out and properly qualified Fusion / HCM Cloud consultant, I’ve been working my way through the certification exams. So far I’d completed these 7:

Big Data… Is Hadoop the good way to start?

In the past 2 years, I have met many developers, architects that are working on “big data” projects. This sounds amazing, but quite often the truth is not that amazing. TL;TR You believe that you have a big data project? Do not start with the installation of an Hadoop Cluster -- the "how" Start to talk to business people to understand their problem -- the "why" Understand the data you must

Android Update: 5.0

Today my Nexus 7 got the upgrade to Android 5.0:

Running Oracle Repository Creation Utility on 64-bit Ubuntu.

Today I needed the Oracle Repository Creation Utility (RCU) on a 64-bit Ubuntu VM. However, if you search the Oracle website, you can only find a 32-bit version of the RCU. I decided to download the 32-bit version instead.

We start the process of running the RCU by unzipping the downloaded file.  Navigate to the folder where the downloaded file is placed and execute the following command:

Becoming a Fusion HCM Reporting Specialist

At first reading, the wealth of reporting options available to Fusion customers is a little confusing. How do you know your OBI EE from your OTBI and your BIP from your OBIA? Hopefully this post will clear it up a little.

OBI EE – Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition

OBI EE is the BI engine behind much of the other applications. It isn’t exposed on its own, but is used to build some of the (more...)

UKOUG2014 – Amazing ACE Talent


I go on all the time about how honoured I am to be an ACE Director.

It is an honour and not just a 'boys club' where we all do exactly what Oracle tells us. I am always saddened when people say that, and the recent blog from Tim Hall and his follow up couldn't put it any better.

If you have ever been in any of my sessions you will know I certainly don't (more...)

UKOUG2014 – Test Yourself


I once left IT. Not because it was difficult or because I wasn't happy but because I moved with my husband's job to a small town where it wasn't really possible. We made the decision together and decided that it was only two years and perhaps that was the right time to start a family. So 2 years later with a young child I moved back to England and looked for a job. I actually (more...)

Want to Tinker with Fusion? See for yourself the User Experience

The UX mobile labs will again be with us in Liverpool where people who have pre-registered can test out what is coming down the line. If you listen to Julie Stringfellow from Reading (more...)

Lessons of product development at Netflix

Lessons of product development at Netflix

Just a month after sharing my post on Spotify engineering culture, I found a post on Startup lessons from Netflix. That was written inspired by a talk on fast delivery devops by Adrian Cockcroft. Who spent a long time building up Netflix’s cloud infrastructure and spearheaded the development of many new cloud-related technologies and techniques at the company.

My Nightmare is over – but what a lesson in CX or rather Frustration v Service


Two weeks ago today I left my backpack on a train. A nightmare, it contained my digital life, PC, iPad and Kindle, plus a month's expense receipts.

Two weeks later I have obtained duplicates of most receipts and submitted my expenses to my 3 masters, replaced the PC with a MAC and all but recreated everything.

Yesterday I spent 6 hours completing the insurance claim, scanning receipts etc and today.........

Another Conference But Really Different


I have attended over 100 conferences but they have either been IT Usergroup or Vendor conferences, last week I attended my first non IT conference.

Adding a custom case activity to your case Maven-style

In this blog I’ll show you how to add a simple custom case activity to the case we’ve developed in my earlier blogpost here. I’ll update the GitHub code so that it will reflect the changes I made in the course of this writing.

Enterprise Libraries: The Next Iteration of WebCenter Folders

This blog post was written by Matt Rudd, Enterprise Support Team Lead at Fishbowl Solutions. Matt has participated in multiple WebCenter 11g upgrades during his time with Fishbowl, and recently developed a solution for an issue he ran into frequently while performing upgrades.

With the release of the ADF Content UI for WebCenter Content, it has become clear that the long-term road map for folder-based storage within WebCenter Content is based on enterprise libraries. The (more...)

OSB 12c; tips for use DomainValueMap in Xquery

Today I was building a Xquery with a reference to a DomainValueMap (DVM) in JDeveloper 12c for an OSB 12c project.

When testing my Xquery I ran into the following error:
