Inoculating the Cloud
Another day, another data breach. From the recent cyber attack on the Internal Revenue Service to news of a security bug called VENOM, it seems as if frequent (more...)
The CFO often must be the most multifunctional tool in the executive office.
And I mean ‘tool’ as ‘a device used to carry out a
particular function’ (not the urban slang definition). The CFO’s I interact with
are multi-learned, multi-talented, multi-skilled. That’s because their
responsibilities typically go well beyond finance, most often to overseeing IT
and HR functions.
The Best Talent is Hard to Find

and executives’ (more...)

A recent question on the OTN Database Forum asked:
I need to check if at least one record present in table before processing rest of the statements in my PL/SQL procedure. Is there an efficient way to achieve that considering that the table is having huge number of records like 10K.
I don’t think many readers of the forum would consider 10K to be a huge number of records; nevertheless it is a question that (more...)
This post is next in series of "Working with ADF Faces Components programmatically"
So this post is about creating client Attribute, applying it to component and setting it's value programmatically
requirement comes in picture when user is dealing with dynamic layout
means components are created programmatically at run time and it is not
possible to apply clientAttribute and other properties declarative
In this i am extending my previous post -

Waaaay back in the first entry in this series we tuned one of the queries on the PL/SQL Challenge. The index we created improved its performance significantly. This missed the bigger picture however.
The query was embedded in a PL/SQL function. The main SQL statement on the Library page called this function. We could still make noticeable performance gains by extracting the query out of PL/SQL and placing it directly in the main select.
I thought I would refresh my knowledge of creating a standby database and at the same time include some DataGuard Broker configuration which also throws in some changes that came along with 12c
Database Name QUICKIE host server 1 ASM disk
Database Name STAN host server 2 ASM disk
Create a standby database STAN using ACTIVE DUPLICATE from the source database QUICKIE

Voxxed Days Istanbul 2015 was held on May 9th. It might seem surprising but this was the first large scale independent Java focused conference ever to be held in Turkey. It was a deliberately modest but solid first step with gradual future growth in mind. Though the event was modest in scope it was certainly not in terms of spirit and enthusiasm. It attracted some of the best and brightest in the Java ecosystem including (more...)
When performing Federation SSO operations, the user will be referenced in the SSO message via a unique identifier that will then be used by the SP to map the incoming SSO response to a local user.
Sometimes the unique identifier is an attribute part of the existing LDAP user record, such as the email address or the username, while other times, the identifier only exists for the Federation SSO operation between the SP and IdP (more...)

In the second installment of this series on Employee Advocacy (EA), we are discussing strategies to engage employees in advocacy. Part one discusses what EA is and why it’s important.
It’s really lovely to talk about how 500 employees could relay your message to a potential audience of 50,700, but it’s a lot harder to make those numbers happen. Here’s how we do it:
Begging is not a good look (unless you have fur).

In Scott Lynn's announcement
of Oracle's membership in the Open Container Initiative
, he gives a great summary of how Solaris virtualization got to the point it's at. Quite an interesting read!
Another of the Application Composer tuning recommendations made by our internal Performance, Scalability and Reliability (PSR) team to be aware of is the potential overhead of using aggregate functions in your scripts. As shown below these functions are listed under the Number category in the groovy palette and include avg, min, max, sum and count.
What is significant is that when used they will read every row in the database query to perform their operation. (more...)

Wie wir kommunizieren und in Kontakt bleiben, hat sich mit dem Siegeszug von Social Media binnen kürzester Zeit radikal verändert. Das stellt auch Unternehmen vor neue Herausforderungen – vor allem im Marketing. Hier lösen sogenannte Multi-Channel-Kampagnen die klassisch eindimensionale Kundenansprache ab. Oracle unterstützt Partner dabei, diese neue Dimension des Marketing für sich zu entdecken und umzusetzen. Wie das funktioniert, hat die MT AG mit ihrer erfolgreichen Cross-Media-Kampagne „Forms erfrischen“ vorgemacht.
