I had great fun—and learned a lot in the process—by taking part in an internal Oracle hackathon using Estimote beacons. I joined a team developing a find food fast app using sensors, cleverly named iBacon (iBeacon, iBacon, geddit?).
iBacon didn’t win.
But what we achieved in those three days of the hackathon really knocked me out. It taught me a lot about teamwork and flexible working, and gave me a real-world insight into how (more...)
In my recent post I already mentioned it a little bit: Integrating your manual Data Guard Broker configuration in OEM Cloud Control can become a sort of climbing a Mountain. And it doesn’t have to be.
But first a short description of the situation. I have a working Data Guard broker configuration between two Cluster Databases running Oracle 184.108.40.206 on linux x86-64. Both clusters have an Cloud Control agent (220.127.116.11) (more...)
For some of our own internal applications, we (AMIS) are using 2 products of Oracle that do not require any license to be payed: ADF Essentials and the Oracle XE database.
These applications were initially deployed to a Tomcat 6 server, only when trying to deploy new applications we encountered issues with conflicting libraries. As the Glassfish Open Source edition is also free and well documented and supported I decided to investigate a switch.
The last few months I’ve been working with Oracle Data Guard, reading lots of manuals and (parts of) books, to make smart decisions and get a solid foundation. I consider myself part of the people who like to work with the command line. That way you really get to understand what you are doing and you won’t have to panic when you don’t have a GUI at your disposal. Once that’s an acquired skill I will (more...)
On Monday, a U.S. judge gave Microsoft control of 22 domains owned by domain hosting service No-IP.com. Microsoft intended to filter out some domains used by malware, but promptly screwed up. The result was that millions of legitimate users could not access their servers.
This will happen again and again as infrastructure moves to centralized cloud providers. What do you think will happen if the server just above yours in the server rack (more...)

I always remember Jeremy Ashley (@jrwashley), über-UX story teller and master setter of expectations—and VP of the Oracle Applications User Experience team—explaining to me early on that a good way of grasping what user experience was about was to recall those feelings experience of opening an Apple product’s box and peeking inside.
Jeremy pulled an awesome emotional trigger for me with that example. I immediately empathized. Of course, it helped that the (more...)

Great shout out for the Oracle Applications Cloud Release 8 Simplified UI by all-round Oracle Applications UX champ and enterprise applications guru Floyd Teter (@fteter). He tells us: “Simple is the new cool.”
Simplified UI Home Page. A tablet-first crisp experience from the cloud.
I subscribe to Microsoft Office 365 and had a payment stuck on an expired credit card. Even though there was a new card, the billing system kept trying the old one.
In a modern cloud service, I would open a service request and expect things to be handled for me. But this is Microsoft. And with the arrogance of the monopolist they used to be, they require you to please show up when they feel (more...)
