Integration is the
most time-consuming element of customer implementation
In the frenzy of adopting SaaS solutions, it’s easy to let
the anticipated benefits 'cloud over' potential concerns. But the lower costs and
greater simplicity of individual solutions can be quickly gobbled up by the
expense of building and maintaining integrations. SaaS vendors are concerned about integration issues. You should be too.

a SOA architecture there is often a need to create asynchronous
services. As a simple example imagine a workflow approval process. In
such a case the approval process can run from minutes to weeks, before
the final approval returned back to the client. This is a typical
example of an asynchronous service. So when a platform like Oracle SOA
Suite is involved the implementation of an asynchronous service is a
quite easy task to (more...)
Scott Wardrop from AIDEV told me that they produced a plugin for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c to monitor MongoDB. We use MongoDB in our production systems, so I decided to examine the plugin and write a blog post about it. Unfortunately version of our MongoDB databases are too old (2.4.x series) so the plugin didn’t work. Of course, it didn’t stop me. We created a simple MongoDB Cluster environment to test (more...)
I’ve added this script to our toolbelt for future upgrades. We have a friendly “System is under maintenance, sorry for any convenience” web page that we want to show to users while we run upgrades, and we want it to be shown even if we’re just doing some database schema changes.
So I took the script from here and adapted it slightly, here’s our version:
declare PRAGMA AUTONOMOUS_TRANSACTION;
v_workspace CONSTANT VARCHAR2(100) := 'MYSCHEMA';
presentation (and book
), I have created a presentation called PL/SQL: The Good Parts
This is not intended as an introduction to PL/SQL, but rather an overview of features you should consider if you want to maximize your enjoyment of programming in the Oracle Database. Also, this is not an exhaustive list of all features, it's simply the ones I personally use frequently.

Hello, this is Darius Wiles.
Version 3.0 of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) has been announced by the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST). Although there have been no high-level changes to the standard since the Preview 2 release which I discussed in a previous blog post, there have been a lot of improvements to the documentation.
Soon, Oracle will be using CVSS v3.0 to report CVSS Base scores (more...)
Unifying the customer journey is complex challenge for marketers. A majority of consumers have multiple online personas created from navigating the web from multiple computers, multiple browsers on those computers and mobile devices. Even from within those devices our household members may access different content on the same mediums which leads to fragmentation - the idea that multiple customer profiles on one device.
Data driven marketers strive to connect their messages with the (more...)

From time to time every sysadmin realizes that something that is consuming a bunch of storage is sitting in the wrong place. This could be because of a surprise conversion of proof of concept into proof of production or something more positive like ripping out old crusty storage for a nice new Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance. When you use kernel zones with Solaris 11.3, storage migration gets a lot easier.

for the ADF BC attribute or UI component through MDS customisation. It
is simple, if such label text already exists in the core bundle. If you
need to create new label text in the customisation and use it - this
becomes a bit tricky. Well, as usual - I'm going to explain how you
could solve such task. You should (more...)
