MCS, or Mobile Cloud Services, is Oracle’s relatively new PaaS tool for provisioning your data to mobile devices or IoT devices. And actually, it’s a pretty simple tool. MCS aims at simplifying the creation of mobile API’s (especially REST API’s) on existing or newly build web services. It delivers an enterprise Mobile Backend-as a-Service (MBaaS).
On top of that, mobile applications can be created. MCS supports natively build apps, hybrid apps or one of the no-code app development (more...)

I received notice yesterday that our latest book, PeopleSoft PeopleTools: Mobile Applications Development (Oracle Press) 1st Edition, is now shipping. Probably the most exciting news is that Amazon has the book listed as the #1 New Release in the Oracle Databases category.

I did a quick search on Amazon and see that Amazon is taking pre-orders: PeopleSoft PeopleTools: Mobile Applications Development. Publication date is currently set for October 16, 2015, which means it will publish just before OpenWorld. Fluid and MAP have been out for about a year. If you guessed that a new PeopleTools (more...)

My two-year contract expired on June 1st...ATT informed me immediately that I was eligible for a phone upgrade and a new contract. Exciting news, as I've (more...)
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...)
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...)
With social computing, cloud and mobile being the big buzzwords in IT right now, it makes sense to ask where Oracle is in relation to these hot topics. Having attended various briefings, sessions and keynotes at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld, and discussing with knowledgeable people, I’ll offer my opinion below.
