OUG_SCOT: I was on fire and then the fire alarm went off

it’s been a couple of months since my session at the oug_scot and I feel it’s enough time to write about it…

First of all – it was awesome!

I have never been to a user conference other than the ilOUG in Israel. I went to the Oracle Open World couple of years ago (and I’m not going this year :-( ) but it was nothing alike…

The user group was at a lovely place near (more...)

First flight into the Oracle Mobile Cloud Service

Last week I attended the Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) track as part of the Oracle Summer Camps in Lisbon. Besides the great location and networking opportunities, it’s was a great learning experience. It turned out it not only was the first MCS training for me, it even was the first MCS training ever given! I feel a lucky bastard to be one of the first people worldwide, besides Oracle employees, to work with the (more...)

Analyse personeelsdata moet efficiëntie en empathie combineren

door Oscar Lausegger, HCM Strategy Director bij Oracle
@OscarLausegger

Data kan managers meer inzicht bieden in medewerkers en bedrijfsvoering. Maar ze moeten er verstandig mee omgaan om de efficiëntie te maximaliseren en niet het vertrouwen te minimaliseren.

We hebben allemaal wel eens iemand aangehoord die een slechte dag op het werk had en klaagt over het feit dat hij te hard en te lang moet werken, terwijl zijn baas dit niet beseft. Of hij klaagt (more...)

Moving Datafiles Online in Oracle 12c

I wrote about this feature in Hebrew quite some time ago but in the last week I was asked by couple of my customers about the correct way to move datafiles with minimal downtime so I thought it would be nice to show the Oracle 12c solution before talking about the solution I gave them.

For years, moving datafiles was a pain in the DBA behinds. It required some database action, then some OS actions (more...)

Real Application Testing report On Premise vs. Oracle Public Cloud

Just a quick post today as I wanted to highlight a video that has been made available by one of my colleagues, Valentin Tabacaru. Valentin is a sales consultant based out of one of our Spanish offices. The
YouTube video shows a SQL Performance Analyzer execution and report generation using real world workload testing between On Premise Oracle 11gR2 Database and Oracle Public Cloud 12c Pluggable Database Service. Both environments are managed using EM12c providing (more...)

Link of Slowly Changing Dimensions and Activity (Daily) History

Slowly Changing Dimensions on specific projects is activated in P6 by setting the History Level to Activity.  Setting the History Level to Activity also triggers a daily recording of each activity for that
project in the historical tables.  This can trigger a large amount of database growth depending on the amount of projects that have activity level history activated on.

In the Primavera Data Warehouse, during the ETL process there are certain steps (more...)

Truncate – 2

Following on from my earlier comments about how a truncate works in Oracle, the second oldest question about truncate (and other DDL) appeared on the OTN database forum“Why isn’t a commit required for DDL?”

Sometimes the answer to “Why” is simply “that’s just the way it is” – and that’s what it is in this case, I think.  There may have been some historic reason why Oracle Corp. implemented DDL the (more...)

Autonomous transaction to the rescue

Fedora 22/23 and Oracle 11gR2/12cR1

linux-tuxAs always, installations of Oracle server products on Fedora are not a great idea, as explained here.

I was reading some stuff about the Fedora 23 Alpha and realised Fedora 22 had passed me by. Not sure how I missed that. :)

Anyway, I did a run through of the usual play stuff.

IoT Hackathon by eProseed September 15th & 16th Utrecht Netherlands

clip_image002[4]The Internet of Things (IoT) is all the buzz in the consumer space. Whether your clock tells your coffee maker to start, an alert that a meeting is delayed automatically figures out a new time to adjust your alarm, or your phone controlling both access and the temperature of your house, the idea of everything being connected is here to stay. But, what does it mean for the enterprise?

Groovy Tuesday: Checking Record and Field State

Whilst features like Triggers are run only upon specific events, for object functions and global functions you may need to ensure the action your scripts take is appropriate to the transaction state. For example, allow specific actions only for entirely new records, or perhaps do something specific when records are updated.

Interestingly the inspiration for this article was an observed logged message shown in one of our environments (Release 10) which stated:

Truncate

The old question about truncate and redo (“does a truncate generate redo or not”) appeared on the OTN database forum over the week-end, and then devolved into “what really happens on a truncate”, and then carried on.

The quick answer to the traditional question is essentially this: the actual truncate activity typically generates very little redo compared to a full delete of all the data because all it does is tidy up (more...)
