Performance, and How to Ruin It, Crowdsourcing, R12, Incident Management, We're Rated!


A brilliant, very funny, and very useful introduction to how NOT to write SQL. Don't do everything that Stephane Faroult discusses in this presentation and you will have a healthier DB.


New term for me, and something Jake from the AppsLab team at Oracle would like to invite you to partake of. In this blog entry he describes crowdsourcing a bit and asks for help gathering info on what you consider to be a Web 2.0 application and how you use them. Oracle Mix, mentioned ofter here in the Infogram, is definitely one of those Web 2.0 entities and is the product of that very same AppsLab team.


This posting from Stephen Chan on Sharing Apps R12 File Systems Across Multiple Database Instances is a pretty exciting feature.

Incident Management

This posting at the AMIS Technology blog would feel right at home in Oracle Support documentation. It outlines how to describe your technical problem and the approach to solving it. It's an adage among programmers that if you can phrase the question properly you are most of the way to an answer. A good item to print out and put in the procedures manual for dealing with Oracle support requests for your business.

We're Rated!

The Oracle News Aggregator has a grand rollcall of Oracle blogs (and some that only deal with Oracle sporadically. The list is in order of the number of blogs that link to the listed blog and....drumroll...the Infogram is in 292nd place! Okay, we 're like the old Avis ad. We're 292nd, so we REALLY try harder. The surprise for me was that Tom Kyte's blog is in second place, with the AppsLab blog in the lead at the moment. Apart from bragging rights about being a whole eight places above 300th place, I wanted to pass this page along because you can pick up some outstanding blogs in the list for your RSS reader (I know I did).
