Enterprise Apps on SaaS

It's really, really early on a Monday morning as I write this:  "zero dark-thirty".  Some ideas just refuse to allow sleep until you share them.  So, while shivering in the pre-dawn cold, I offer the following for your consideration...

Picture if you will, just for a moment, the idea that your enterprise applications system is like an iceberg.  There are the system costs that you can see.  Then there are the costs below the water (more...)

Why Automate Target Patching with Enterprise Manager 12c

Every job comes with tasks that no one likes to perform and database administration is no exception.  Patching is one of those necessary tasks that must be performed and when we are expected to do more with less everyday, the demands of patching another host, another agent, another application is often a task that no one looks forward to.  It’s not that it goes wrong, but that it’s just tedious and many DBAs (more...)

  • Setup > Extensibility > Self Update

Cloud Outage Audit for 2014

Via Chris Kanaracus we heard of the Cloud Outage Audit for 2014 which compares the reliability figures for all of the major cloud vendors.

Together with PeopleSoft 9.2, Oracle announced the new Continuous Delivery model for delivering patches, based on PeopleSoft Update Manager.
