Version Control for PL/SQL
Yalim Kerem Gerger, Gerger

Version management of the PL/SQL source code has always been challenging. Database programmers lack the tools and utilities that make version control easy for developers who code with file-based programming languages such as Java and JavaScript. In fact, this is one of the primary reasons why large software teams avoid writing code in PL/SQL.

In this presentation, you will learn how you can use Git, the prominent open-source version-control software built for distributed teams, to manage your PL/SQL source code. Using these techniques, you can manage your PL/SQL source code just like any other development team manages their file-based code base written in languages such as Java, JavaScript, or C#.

In this presentation, you’ll also learn:

*How Git can empower you to implement any development workflow within your team and make this workflow an inseparable part of your development process.
*To automate most time-consuming tasks, such as merging changes in multiple packages, procedures, and functions.
*To execute commonly used version-control commands in the Oracle Database, such as reverting to a previous version of your source code, creating a new branch, and changing between branches, and how executing these commands can change the source code in the Oracle Database automatically.
*How to get the differential script between two Oracle Database source-code repositories automatically.
*How to minimize any errors, such as overwriting over newer version of packages, procedures, and function.
*How to prevent anyone from editing source code in the database outside of a version-control system.
*How you can have multiple teams change the same logical packages, procedures, and functions and merge their changes automatically.
*To create a reliable audit trail and change log that documents every change to your code base.

Integration Solution with DRM and ODI at a Global Technology Company
Cuong Nguyen Tien, MindStream Analytics

Are you tired of dealing with the issues when doing your monthly master data updates? In this session, you will learn how to automate the process of mastering hierarchies in Data Relationship Management (DRM) and pushing them to downstream applications via Oracle Data Integrator (ODI).

DRM is an industry-leading MDM tool. At our client, multiple entry points were being utilized where hierarchy information was being stored and updated. The objective of our project was to create a central repository or foundation that would allow for hierarchy changes to be made once and then propagated to multiple systems via ODI. The audience will learn how DRM and ODI can integrate with various systems and ultimately can save time and money for the company.

To Build a Strong Data Integration Layer, Use ODI, DRM, and FDM!
Neil C. O'Donovan, Thirdware Solution, Inc.

Are you putting in a lot of effort to collect data from disparate transaction systems or enabling business to analyze and make critical decisions?

Handling massive data in manual spreadsheets or through a complex web of disparate transaction systems is a big challenge. But, with ODI, DRM and FDM, we successfully eliminated these challenges.

Join us in this webinar to learn more about how we leveraged ODI, DRM and FDM to build a strong data integration layer.

Dayalan Punniyamoorthy, Vertical Edge Consulting Group

After the introduction of multiple cloud offerings from Oracle like PBCS and EPCS, there is always a need for managing the Cloud application in an automated fashion. For example, wouldn’t it be great to invoke a Calculation, run a job, or know the status of a job using a batch file or a script?
