Businesses all over the world have spent millions and millions building data warehouses and implementing Business Intelligence (BI) without coming anywhere near the promised business benefits.
That is about the change.
And the thing that will change this is interactive, visual analytics on tablets.
Tablets and modern interactive graphics are a match made in heaven. Business users who will reluctantly spend half an hour looking at a BI report will happily spend hours playing around (more...)
If there’s anyone out there still hoping to close a deal or impress customers with a message about how “mobile is a game changer”, then the words of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) might clarify just how outdated such positioning is:
Cellphones “are now such a pervasive and insistent part of daily life that the proverbial visitor from Mars might conclude they were an important feature of (more...)
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.

I stumbled across this great post from a non-Oracle specific developer, and I thought I'd mention it here because it's worth a read.http://zderadicka.eu/web-clients-are-getting-thick/
I've re-posted my comment here because they were thoughts rattling in my brain that I was going to rabble on about one day.
I've been thinking the same thing recently in regard to requests for Oracle APEX pages to not rely on connection to the database in order to operate (more...)
Something cool happened today…something extremely cool. Xprtly was released into public beta.
What in the heck is Xprtly? The best way to describe it is a cloud-based support platform, with a mobile application and a web interface for administration. The idea is to connect users with support personnel who can respond to issues as they arise. Xprtly also allows for data collection of both user and support personnel behavior, plus analytics (more...)
This is a quick one, if you have followed my other mobile blog posts.
When creating the mobile guide to the AOUG Conference 2013 (taking place June 17 and 18 in a historic Brewery in Vienna, Austria), i found myself creating a new theme using the themeroller, but still not getting the perfect result i wanted.
Every component got exactly the required color, except list-dividers in the Listview-Component looked a bit ugly.
Always check out the original article at http://www.oraclequirks.com for latest comments, fixes and updates.
Your Apex mobile page looks weird because Safari is formatting automatically certain strings containing numbers mistaking them for telephone numbers?
You just need to add a meta tag in the head section of the (more...)
Last post I wrote about evolution. Professional evolution… from legacy technology to new IT paradigms, cloud and mobile. This week, as a result of that evolution, the weather app I developed with a friend, was deployed and it’s available at App Store.
I hope users from Portugal and Brazil find (more...)
In the past 18 months I’ve researched and learned at least a dozen new (to me) and recent technologies. Any of them belongs to 2 interesting areas that I’ve focused in that period… Cloud and Mobile. I’m an early Amazon Web Services adopter and I’ve deployed several services and infrastructures on (more...)
After extensive beta testing oracle announced last week that ADF Mobile is now generally available and can be used to build multi platform on device apps.

) is very useful in very short distance communication ideal for mobile devices. It has got another backer that is from RIM. RIM is bating high on NFC based Apps as its one of the (more...)
, and maybe tried the jQTouch
framework that these spawned. Meanwhile, the official jQuery mobile framework
has slowly been moving to fruition.
I recently discovered another project - Web 2.0 Touch
