Some good solid material on the Challenges and Chances of the 11g Query Optimizer at the Striving for Optimal Performance blog.

SQL Developer

A couple of good postings on SQL Developer over at the That Jeff Smith blog:



Check in once in a while on the EPM / BI Information Center, as pointed out in this posting at the Proactive Support EPM and BI blog.

Some videos on Big Data from the experts at The Data Warehouse Insider.

New Releases
