First flight into the Oracle Mobile Cloud Service

Last week I attended the Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) track as part of the Oracle Summer Camps in Lisbon. Besides the great location and networking opportunities, it’s was a great learning experience. It turned out it not only was the first MCS training for me, it even was the first MCS training ever given! I feel a lucky bastard to be one of the first people worldwide, besides Oracle employees, to work with the (more...)

Облачный атлас. Часть 2: DBaaS. Что такое базы данных как сервис и в чем их преимущества

В прошлый раз мы разобрались с облачной терминологией и заложили основу для дальнейших рассказов об облачных сервисах и технологиях Oracle. База данных – это то, с чего корпорация Oracle началась. Поэтому вполне логично, что подробный разбор облачных сервисов Oracle мы решили начать именно с ее облачной реализации – Database as a Service, или DBaaS. Рассматривать мы будем вариант с частным облаком, но подход Oracle предполагает возможность бесшовных переходов между частными и публичными облаками, гибридные облака (more...)

If You Were the CIO…

If you were a Chief Information Officer (CIO) of a large company, say like Oracle, what would you want from a collaboration solution? What would be your 3 biggest priorities? Would security trump convenience? How about heterogeneity? And plugability – the ability for the solution to connect with existing systems and infrastructure? What about control? Would you trust the public Cloud?

The Pen Is Mightier With UX

If you work in enterprise user experience (UX) it will come as no surprise that the humble pen and paper remains in widespread use for everyday business.

Sales reps, for example, are forever quickly scribbling down opportunity info. HR pros use them widely. Accountants? Check. At most meetings you will find both pen and paper and digital technology on the table.

That’s what UX is all about, understanding all the tools, technology, and job aids, (more...)

Synology backup with CrashPlan 4.3.0

I recently upgraded to CrashPlan 4.3.0 which I use to backup my Synology to a remote location.

On Synology, you can only use CrashPlan in a headless manner, so I am running “the head”, the client, from my MacBook.
After the update to CrashPlan 4.3.0, I was unable to connect to the engine running on my Synology. And that is a pain, as I cannot control the CrashPlan setup anymore, which (more...)

Oracle Process Cloud Service – SOAP Web Service Integration

Oracle Process Cloud (https://cloud.oracle.com/process) allows to invoke SOAP services, along with REST services. You can define a library of SOAP services in Oracle Process Cloud application and use them within the process. This helps to integrate with business logic running on premise.

I have implemented regular SOAP service in ADF BC, just to test how it works to invoke it from Process Cloud:


SOAP service method accepts employee ID and checks (more...)

Oracle Process Cloud Service – Consuming ADF BC REST Service in Web Form

With the introduction of Oracle Process Cloud Service (https://cloud.oracle.com/process) there is an option to run your business process in the cloud. You can implement very similar things as it is possible with BPM 12c in JDeveloper, but only in the cloud. There is no option to implement human task UI with ADF, it must be done with Web Forms (light UI forms implementation framework). This is disadvantage, as it will require (more...)

Your first KiSS to ♥ IoT UX

A First Technical Look At Hybrid Cloning in EM12c Release 5

The sales, support and technical teams were brought into the Denver Tech Center office to do some advanced training in Hybrid Cloud.  There were many take-aways from the days we spent in the office, (which is saying a lot-  most of you likely know how much I hate working anywhere but from home… :)) and I thought I would share a bit of this information with those that are aching for more details on (more...)
