EM GRID, ECM, Software Updates, EBS, Siebel CRM, Search Styles


Olaf Heimburger's has a review of the book Middleware Management with Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control 10g R5 over at his blog. Super short version: Good introduction, but not what you are looking for if you are an advanced Grid jockey.


From the Oracle ECM Alerts - Product News & Information blog we have a release announcement: Oracle Imaging and Process Management 11g Released!

Over at the Siebel Essentials blog there is some useful info on Multilingual BI Publisher Reports for Siebel CRM (Rosetta Stone not included).

Search Styles

This posting over at the Appslab caught my eye: Do You Search or Organize? I'm definitely a searcher. In fact one of the things I like best about the iPod Touch is its ability to search all the tons of apps and sundry in memory to find what you need. People are of two basic types: The searchers and the filers. I remember a study I read about a long time ago that determined that there were two kinds of people in the offices of that time (where paper dominated over email as the key element): clean desk people and sloppy desk people. It turned out that it took the same average time to find things for both those in the sloppy desk school and the neat as a pin group. Although it took longer for the sloppy desk folks to find a particular item they did not spend all the time on neatening and organizing their papers as did the Felix Unger contingent. Over the years I've grown to have a very neat desk. But that's because it's mainly a decorative object with some reference books, quick notes, pens, etc. The real mess is in email, and there the searches, virtual candle in hand, wind up and down the corridors of stacked emails and storerooms of ambiguously labeled attachments. W C. Fields was the consummate sloppy desk man, as shown in his film the Man on the Flying Trapeze: (the relevant part starts at 3:49).
