Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 29-JUN-2011


As oft happens, there are several great items at the Rittman Mead blog. I'll give you this teaser and let you explore for the rest: Oracle BI EE 11g – Reporting on Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) – Part 1.


Here, with all puns about speed and rockets intact, is a posting on: Fast, Faster, JRockit at Middleware magic.

Tools of the DBA Trade

A couple of nice ones I've run across recently in 11i. First one I came upon in the heat of battle (a conflict with corrupted control files happily won by our customer): 11g Data Recovery Advisor DRA, this particular link at Wissem's Oracle and NOSQL Tips.

The other is a nifty instrument of data integration, appropriately enough posted about at the Data Integration blog: Oracle Data Integrator Complex Files as Sources and Targets

Oracle Internals et al.

A couple of items from Tanel Poder. First this article on technical priorities in performance: Knowing what you want to achieve before thinking of how to achieve it – a query optimization example.

The title reminds of the often gagged about 50s title: Better Life Through Plastic. But it's a great article nonetheless: White Paper: Reducing Costs Through Better Server Utilization


Over at the PeopleSoft Technology Blog there's a brief but useful posting on the Cumulative Feature Overview Tool.

also in PeopleSoft's dimension is this posting on Applying Hints to Objects inside Database Views at the The PeopleSoft DBA Blog.


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


Talking Identity discusses some new internet banking guidelines. Okay, that may not sound like thrill-city, but you know what, it's becoming more and more of a cliffhanger every time someone makes a transaction over the Web. And transactions over the web are becoming a quickly ballooning part of transactions over all. So this is a subject worthy of attention, even by those outside banking and security realms: FFIEC Updates Their Guidance. And The Winner Is…

Really Cool Stuff I Wish I Read Back in School Department

We all do quick estimating math in our heads. Some of it goes well, some of it, like mine..well, let's just say I like calculators. This article over at the Terry Jones blog talks about a really interesting way to supercharge those estimates: Back of the envelope calculations with The Rule of 72.
