In fact, a lot of times confusion on deployment options, pricing, customer-managed versus vendor-managed, and security may delay cloud strategies. This is definitely the case for Oracle WebCenter Content customers who (more...)

Collaborate Preview #1: How a Chatbot Army Could Help Your Business

No matter your profession, having an assistant to provide some help would be awesome. Someone to compile data, run reports, enter information into systems, look up key details, and even order your new business cards after your promotion. Unfortunately, most professionals don’t have an actual human assistant to perform tasks like these specifically for them. Most of these tasks we all do ourselves, and while they all may be important and necessary, they take time (more...)

Oracle Spring ’12 Federal Development Update

I didn’t attend, but there was an Oracle Federal Financial Briefing on 17-Apr in Reston where information was shared about some of the upcoming GTAS enhancements and target patch release dates.  Personally, besides focusing on our Fed R12.1.3 stabilization efforts on my current gig, I’m working to get smart on some of the basics associated with GTAS, the upcoming 6-digit USSGL standard and new Federal Accounting/System process changes associated.

As soon as we can get our hands on these new GTAS patches, we need to jump on them to start understanding some of the impacts to our (more...)

Performance Enlightening – Craig Effect (Tropa de Elite)

Add to Technorati Favorites Ver este articulo en Español
 
During the past week I had the opportunity to assist both the Oracle Performance Firefighting and the 
Advanced Oracle Performance Analysis and only can say: awesome!!!
 
Craig Shallahamer is a great teacher and has a lot of resources to effectively share knowledge, even if

very fresh and sometimes humorist perspective.
 
The result: we started searching for those  (more...)
