Jobs To Be Done. Or #JTBD. We’ve been road testing this…



Jobs To Be Done. Or #JTBD. We’ve been road testing this framework lately.  I like it. Could it be a good fit for the busy cloud developer who wants to build a usable solution that solves a real problem and doesn’t want to deal with the generalizations of personas or overhead of user profiles (a debate in itself)?

Seems like a good fit for the agile world too. Pictured is Julian Orr (left) (more...)

Lessons of product development at Netflix

Lessons of product development at Netflix

Just a month after sharing my post on Spotify engineering culture, I found a post on Startup lessons from Netflix. That was written inspired by a talk on fast delivery devops by Adrian Cockcroft. Who spent a long time building up Netflix’s cloud infrastructure and spearheaded the development of many new cloud-related technologies and techniques at the company.

PeopleSoft’s paths to the Cloud – Part III

In my previous posts on this series, I have covered how cloud computing could be used to reduce costs and maximize the flexibility of PeopleSoft Development and Production environments. In both cases, I focused on one specific area of cloud computing, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Today I will explain what kind of benefits can be expected by using another important area: Database as a Service (DBaaS). Instead of using an IaaS provisioned server to (more...)

UTOUG, An East Coast Girl Heads Out West to Spread the Forms Love

What a view!

I just returned from my first trip to Utah where I briefly (I was only there for 28 hours!) touched down in Salt Lake City to attend the UTOUG Fall Symposium.

Before I give you the run down, if you just want to cut to the chase, here are the session slides:

DOAG14 Conference: Germany, Here Comes the Oracle Forms Masters!

Waitress-photoSomehow it is already November, which means I have to start gearing up for all the travel that I will be doing this month. I just got back from my first trip to Utah for the super UTOUG Training Days. The team treated us like royalty and it was fun being able to bring a bit of the legacy to mobile message to Salt Lake City. Now in less than 2 weeks….Germany here I come!

PeopleSoft’s paths to the Cloud – Part I


Nowadays, all paths seem to lead to cloud computing. In the business applications world, Oracle is pushing hard to position the Oracle Cloud Applications in an increasingly competitive market. The reasons that favor Software as a Service (SaaS) applications over their on premise counterparties are significant, even though there are still a good number of circumstances under which the latter should normally be the preferred option.

Our beloved PeopleSoft (yes, I like PeopleSoft, so what? (more...)

Good UX – Don’t Leave Home Without It

There was a time when I asserted that User Experience would be a differentiator for Oracle in selling Fusion Applications.  Lots has changed since then, so I think it’s time to change my own thinking.  What’s changed?


  • Oracle has a cloud platform
  • Fusion Applications is now Cloud Application Services
  • We’re seeing well-designed user experiences throughout Oracle’s offerings: Simplified UI in moving into the Applications Unlimited products, and is also evident throughout Oracle’s cloud (more...)

U2 and the Power of the Cloud: It’s Not About the Device

A reminder, based on the recent furor over the distribution of a U2 album from the cloud on to Apple devices. Cloud power, for sure.

But, cloud power is not about the device.

★ Oracle to Unveil Database Cloud Service 2.0 at OpenWorld

Oracle Database Cloud Service

Michael Hickins:

At Oracle OpenWorld 2014, the company will roll out its new Database Cloud Service — a new multi-tenant database-as-a-service offering that will let customers migrate their existing apps and databases to the cloud “with the push of a button,” said Ellison. Data will be compressed ten to one and encrypted for secure and efficient transfer to the cloud, with no reprogramming. “Every single Oracle feature — even our latest high-speed in-memory processing — is included in (more...)

Whistler, Microsoft and how far cloud has come

In six years Microsoft has come from almost zero corporate knowledge about how cloud computing works to it being an integral part of their strategy.  Sure back in early 2008 there were some pieces of Microsoft that knew about cloud but that really wasn't a corporate view it was what a very few people inside the company knew. How do I know this? Well back in 2008 I was sitting on the top of a

They Took Away My Cloud

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...)

Come back when we’re open

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...)

Oracle on Windows Azure pricing revealed

I just noticed that prices for Oracle Database running on Windows Azure have now been published.



The prices for the virtual machines with the Oracle license included run from about USD 820 per month for Oracle Standard Edition (SE) running on 2 cores, to a whopping USD 9300 per month for Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) running on 8 cores. These prices are for Oracle software only and do not include the cost of the VM, (more...)

The death grip of Enterprise vendors

I’ve just been comparing a number of online Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems. In this project, I had the opportunity to sign up to the free trial for various services as well as cancelling these demo accounts.

Modern CRM systems like Highrise, CapsuleCRM, and Batchbook all had a button or a link to cancel or delete an account, with appropriate warnings. But the 800-pound gorilla of CRM, Salesforce, did not. In fact, (more...)
