Flash Storage, EBS, Forms, CJ Date, Technology, Warhouse Security


Some thoughts from Kevin Closson on a post from Jonathan Lewis we blogged on previously here: Pardon Me, Where Is That Flash Cache? Part I.


This week at the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog:


Grants Blog lets us know that: Oracle Forms certified on Windows 7 and IE8.

CJ Date

Tom Kyte notes in his blog that one of the great figures in relational database theory is speaking in Dallas next month: A fairly unique opportunity... CJ Date's books form the theoretical foundation of the relational model as it is currently understood, so the chance to participate in a seminar with him is rare and valuable.

I'm not a fan of the the term 'fairly unique', by the way. It's one of those oddities of human language vs. logic, like the sales ads you see boasting: Up to 30% off...or more. Well, if it's up to 30% then it's not more than that. If it's unique, it's unique. To me, 'fairly unique' is in the same domain as 'somewhat pregnant'.

Technology: The Smart Tag Gets Smarter

Michael Fauscette has a posting on the expanding realm of the Internet, and mentions senseaware, an innovative technology from FedEx. It's like the smart tags that have started circulating in the supply chain, but is, for lack of a better word, smarter. You can read about it here.

Warehouse Security

Speaking of tracking things in a warehouse, this time a data warehouse, the Data Warehouse Insider has part 3 in its series on Lock Up Your Data Warehouse for us this week.
