Social media : comment faire le lien entre conversation et acquisition

Conscient de l'énorme potentiel qu’offrent les réseaux sociaux en termes de données à l’ère du business 2.0, les entreprises ont fait des réseaux sociaux leur champ de bataille dans l’acquisition de leads et de leur conversion. Ainsi, dans cet environnement dominé par la concurrence et la compétitivité, bâtir une relation avec des prospects bien ciblés et faciles à convertir, n’est pas chose facile. Nombreuses sont les entreprises qui perdent beaucoup de temps et de (more...)

Check out What Sauron is saying about Oracle

Over past year we have been (hopefully) hearing about Oracle Big Data SQL.

This is a new(-ish) option from Oracle that allows us to run our SQL queries not just on the data in our Oracle Database but also against NoSQL databases and Hadoop. No extra coding is needed, no extra formatting is needed, etc.

All the hard work in connecting to the data in this systems, translating it into executable code on these systems, (more...)

Discussie over medewerkerbetrokkenheid gaat door

door Henry Barenholz, Senior Director HCM Leader Benelux & Nordics
Follow on Twitter: @HenryBarenholz

Nieuw onderzoek van Oracle toont aan dat medewerkerbetrokkenheid alleen werkt als zij wordt gemeten

Medewerkerbetrokkenheid is een van die eeuwige vraagstukken die zich nooit ver buiten de radar van de directie bevindt. Maar ondanks de voortdurende belangstelling, hebben we geen antwoord op een aantal vragen. Is medewerkerbetrokkenheid voor bedrijven een strategische kwestie? En zo ja, hoe dan? Hoe is het nauwkeurig (more...)

“Custom CSS” im APEX 5.0 Theme Roller: Unbegrenzte Möglichkeiten

Theme RollerSeit APEX 5.0 gibt es den neuen Universal Theme Roller, mit dem Sie das Farbschema Ihrer APEX-Anwendung mit wenigen Mausklicks bequem ändern können - ohne auch nur eine Zeile Code schreiben zu müssen. 

Allerdings möchte man oft Änderungen machen, die über reine Farben hinausgehen - Schriftarten ändern, Elemente positionieren oder Größen anpassen. Das alles bietet der Theme Roller nicht an - muss man also doch wieder den HTML-Code in den APEX-Templates ändern?


Using Shared AM to Cache and Display Table Data

This post is based on Steve Muench sample Nr. 156. In my personal opinion, ADF samples implemented by Steve Muench still remain one of the best source of examples and solutions for various ADF use cases. Sample Nr. 156 describes how to use Shared AM to display cached data in UI table. Typically Shared AM's are used to implement cached LOV's (session or application scope). But it could go beyond LOV, based on the use (more...)

Estimating Apex Development

You’ve finished the design for an Apex application, and the manager asks you “when will you have it ready to test”. You resist the temptation to respond snarkily “how long is a piece of string” – which, by the way, is often the only appropriate answer if they ask for an estimate before the design work has started.


Since you have a design and a clear idea of what exactly this application will do, you can build a reasonable (more...)

The role of Coherence in Batch

Lately I have been talking to partners and customers on older versions of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework and they are considering upgrading to the latest version. One of the major questions they ask is about the role of Oracle Coherence in our architecture. Here are some clarifications:

  • We supply a subset of the runtime Oracle Coherence libraries we use in the batch architecture with the installation. It does not require a separate Oracle Coherence (more...)

I Wish I Sold More

I flew home yesterday from Karen’s memorial service in Jacksonville, on a connecting flight through Charlotte. When I landed in Charlotte, I walked with all my stuff from my JAX arrival gate (D7) to my DFW departure gate (B15). The walk was more stressful than usual because the airport was so crowded.

The moment I set my stuff down at B15, a passenger with expensive clothes and one of those permanent grins established eye contact, (more...)

Community and Regional Oracle User Groups
