The Oracle Developer Community – well, that is us. All developers working with Oracle technology, sharing experiences and ideas, helping each other with inspiration and solutions to challenges, making each other (more...)

Using Adobe InDesign with Oracle Content Experience Cloud

5 Things I learned about Using Adobe Design Products with Oracle Content Experience Cloud

Fun with Data Visualization Cloud–creating a timeline for album releases

I have played a little with Oracle’s Data Visualization cloud and it is really fun to be able to so quickly turn raw data into nice and sometimes meaningful visuals. I do not pretend I grasp the full potential of Data Viz CS, but I can show you some simple steps to quickly create something good looking and potentially really useful.

My very first steps were documented in this earlier article: https://technology.amis.nl/2017/09/10/hey-mum-i-am-a-citizen-data-scientist-with-oracle-data-visualization-cloud-and-you-can-be-one-too/.

The Fishbowl Team Wins the 2017 Modern CX Hackathon at Oracle Openworld

The Fishbowl hackathon team headed out to San Francisco on Friday September 29th with Chatbots on the brain.  Their goal was to develop a solution that would improve sales productivity and margin as well as to improve executive insights and information access by allowing 24/7 conversational access to a sales pipeline.  And so the sales assistant chatbot was born.

The team spent the following 2 days writing code, utilizing Oracle’s cloud based services, (more...)

Imagine If You Will – The Oracle HCM Cloud Solution Library

Foreword:  When I was young, I tried like heck to develop a Rod Serling imitation.  I was a big fan of The Twilight Zone series, including the various revivals.  Alas, I was unable to get anywhere close and eventually gave it up.  But I admittedly still love the phrase "Imagine if you will".  So it's cool that I get to use it here.  See?  Work can be fun.

Imagine if you will the opportunity to (more...)

Open Source? We have been here before… right!

Since over half a year I have made an adjustment in my course… nothing too dramatic, but still it has had some impact.

I have chosen the path of the more pure technique again. Not in a sense that I don’t manage anymore, though I don’t, but that’s more of a side effect

Nextcloud configuration

Nextcloud configuration issues on Debian 9 Stretch In an attempt to get email and storage fixed, I am trying to get dovecot, postfix and nextcloud to integrate. With varying levels of success - what else is new? Anyway, nextcloud greets with the fact I do not have OPcache enabled, and I should add to php.ini. WRONG NOT php.ini So, I did... I added opcache.enable=1 opcache.enable_cli=1

Data Gravity and the Network

The network has often been viewed as “no man’s land” for the DBA-  Our tools may identify network latency, but rarely does it go into any details, designating the network outside our jurisdiction.

As we work through data gravity, i.e. the weight of data, the pull of applications, services, etc. to data sources, we have to inspect what connects it to the data and slows it down. (more...)

Archaic Data Transfer- A DBA Rant

There was a great post by Noel Yuhanna on how he deems the number of DBAs required in a database environment by size and number of databases.  This challenge has created a situation where data platforms are searching for ways to remove this roadblock and eliminate the skills needed to manage the database tier.

I’ve been a DBA for almost 2 decades now, (“officially” as my beginning date (more...)

Diving Into Deep Links

I had another one of those eye-opening customer experiences recently.  I was engaged in a web conference with an Oracle customer discussing some UX extensibility features that come out of the box with HCM Cloud Applications.  During the conference, we got into a brief demonstration that included utilization of some deep links. Went over pretty well, people got excited, we had a rousing exchange on the benefits of deep linking and I was feeling pretty (more...)

Oracle Java Cloud Service – Scaling and Cluster Setup for ADF

Last couple of weeks I was busy preparing to my OOW'17 session about estimating Java Cloud Service performance for ADF application. I was running stress tests against various JCS instance configurations to be able to create performance estimation methodology. I will describe this methodology on OOW, but here today will list key steps required to scale up JCS instance.

Let's assume you are running single cloud node with 1 CPU and 7.5 GB RAM. (more...)

How Pythian Helped Nav Canada Migrate Their Oracle Database to a Microsoft Azure SQL Database

A common concern for businesses is optimizing database speed and performance, without raising costs.

Nav Canada supports flight planning with aviation weather, aeronautical information, and online flight planning. To address a need for a more cost-efficient environment for their critical flight planning data, while optimizing performance they decided to migrate from an on-premises Oracle system to Microsoft Azure SQL Database. They turned to the database and cloud experts at Pythian to assist them.

Oracle Big Data Cloud Service CE: Working with Hive, Spark and Zeppelin 0.7

In my previous post, I mentioned that Oracle Big Data Cloud Service – Compute Edition started to come with Zeppelin 0.7 and the version 0.7 does not have HIVE interpreter. It means we won’t be able to use “%hive” blocks to run queries for Apache Hive. Instead of “%hive” blocks, we can use JDBC interpreter (“%jdbc” blocks) or Spark SQL (“%sql” blocks).

The JDBC interpreter lets you create a JDBC connection to any (more...)
