Hyperion, Performance, Siebel, Network, New Blog of Note, EBS


By way of the 'in 2 Hyperion' blog there is a new release out: Oracle EPM 11.1.2 Talleyrand Release (I was personally hoping for an equestrian release named 'Tallyho!', but my hopes have been crushed).

New Blog of Note

Kevin Closson points to a new blog Gavin Soorma he noticed in his blog here.

Lots of nice stuff in it, including this item on GoldenGate, which is the most exciting product I've seen for HA and data transfer in recent memory: Oracle GoldenGate Veridata Installation and Configuration.
