2017 CodeTalk Series - Get Your Money's Worth Out of Your Database
Chris Saxon, Oracle Corporation and Patrick Barel, AMIS Services

The 2017 CodeTalk Series Webinars are Co-sponsored by ODTUG and IOUG.

Stop treating your database as a bit bucket and start using the advanced features available in the database. If you use the database to its full extent, you will not only see an increase in performance of your application, but also an increase of the productivity of the developers.

The database is one of the most important assets to your application. It is also one of the most expensive parts in your application. Most organizations don’t get the most out of their database license and treat it like a simple bit bucket. The modern Oracle database can do so much more than just store data. Features you can use ‘in the database’ include:

  • Flashback queries (what did my data look like at a certain moment in time)
  • Data Security (only read and write data you are authorized for)
  • Identity columns (12c)
  • Invisible columns (12c)

And many more, of which Chris and Patrick will cover as many as they can.

How to Best Use REST API to Manage and Administer Oracle PBCS
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?

In this presentation, we will review the REST API for managing the Oracle PBCS and Data Management and its full potential.

Change Impact Analysis with 12.2 PL/Scope 
                Steven Feuerstein, Oracle Corporation

PL/Scope, first introduced in 11.1, offers a powerful code analysis tool, baked right into PL/SQL. With it, you can answer questions such as, "Where is this variable modified in my code?", "Which packages invoke a specific overloading of a function?" and "Show me all my unused declarations." Cool stuff. But prior to 12.2, SQL statements were not a part of that analysis. Now in 12.2, PL/Scope also gathers information about static SQL statements and where dynamic SQL is executed in your code. As a result, you can now use PL/Scope to perform comprehensive, detailed analysis of the impact of planned changes to your code base. In this webinar, Steven Feuerstein introduces attendees to PL/Scope, explores 12.2 enhancements, and provides scripts everyone can use to leverage PL/Scope in their dev environment.

Keeping Up With The Jones': The Upgrade Process to OBIEE 12c
Linda Zheng, Lower Colorado River Authority and Michelle Kolbe, Red Pill Analytics

It’s true that the upgrade process from OBIEE 11g to 12c is more simple than previous upgrades. However, it’s not all roses as we learned in the process of upgrading a large OBIEE environment at LCRA. We’ll walk through the steps to upgrade to OBIEE 12c from 11g. We’ll discuss using some of the new features of 12c including Baseline Validation Tool to check for differences in environments, import service instance and the BI migration tool. Most importantly, we’ll talk about all of the lessons learned from experiences with this 12c upgrade.

Performant Faceted Search Navigation in APEX with Oracle JET and PL/SQL Table Pipelines
                Erik Espinoza, Viscosity North America

Faceted navigation is arguably the most significant search innovation of the past decade. Leveraged by retail sites including Amazon, Home Depot, and Zappos, faceted search allows users to quickly narrow a massive result set by giving them guides (the facets) of the major groups of their results. In this session, we discuss both thick and thin ways of doing this, from enterprise applications such as Oracle Endeca to simple methods using PL/SQL pipelined functions. We show you a retail use case and PL/SQL faceted database search, APEX application, and Oracle JET extensions.

The EPM Clouds are Rolling in Fast! Is It Really Worth Upgrading My On-Prem System Now?
                Joe Malewicki, iArch Solutions

So it’s here. The storm has been brewing and it looks like this time, we might actually see some weather. The reality is yes; everything is headed to the cloud. However, this session isn’t about “tomorrow.” It’s about TODAY.

Today you have a fully baked production running EPM/Hyperion system. You’ve got Essbase cubes crunching data, Financial Management Consolidations firing off daily, Planning web forms being updated every week and finally tons of users with a local version of Excel 2010 on Windows 7 complaining daily “Smart View is too slow!” You’ve got IT and Risk Management stating Microsoft has cut off the version of SQL Server and Windows 4 years ago yet Hyperion is still lingering along on these unsupported platforms. Why? Because you can’t run your business WITHOUT Hyperion.

In this session we’ll help you address and develop a plan with minimal to NO downtime to get your “on-prem” Hyperion installation up to the latest and greatest available from Oracle. We’ll help you decide what makes the most sense for an upgrade path: On-prem hardware, virtualizing, hosted environments, or shared resources. Discussions on 3rd party hosting providers and yes, discussions on Oracle’s Cloud versions of their EPM software stack and how all relates to an upgrade.

You’ll see a LIVE demonstration of “BEFORE” and “AFTER Upgrade” real world EPM application performance and system functionality. So please join us for this educational and informative session and let’s get you up to where you should be today! And remember – someone’s “cloud” is just someone else’s “computer.”

Using Oracle R and OBIEE to Help Doctors Predict Areas with the Most Severe Health Problems
                Cuong Nguyen Tien, Mindstream Analytics

In every field we fight scarcity and shortage. In our session we will talk about the shortage of doctors and healthcare providers. What can we do to help healthcare organizations pick efficiently the areas with specific health problems and invest their efforts there?

In our session you will learn how to form a predictive model of specific aspect of health using Oracle R. We then apply the model to a global grid and have OBIEE visualize the areas with the most severe health problems. Healthcare organizations will be able to decrease the costs and efficiently use the resources to focus on the areas that need help the most.

Essbase for R (Not R for Essbase)
Jon Keskitalo, eCapital Advisors

"Machine learning" and other types of advanced analysis are the next big opportunities for business, but large organizations are still trying to figure out how to make full use of their potential. Tools like the R language are gateways to these concepts, but how do they fit into our existing world? Most people don't realize that at the heart of many of these technologies lies a familiar concept: multidimensional cubes! Follow a walk-through of a machine learning project coded in pure, native Essbase, and see how this standard corporate analytical technology might be a lot closer to the bleeding edge than you think. If you have been looking for an intro to machine learning concepts via the lens of dimensions and cubes, this is the presentation for you.

Unbiased Comparison: Evaluating All Deployment Options for Hyperion EPM – SaaS vs. IaaS vs. On-Prem
                Eric Helmer, Mercury Technology Group

Today, the word "cloud" is everywhere, and it's causing a lot of confusion. Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) are completely different solutions but are all considered "cloud."

This session will compare and contrast the different available options Oracle customers have to deploy Oracle EPM. It will break down all Oracle's cloud offerings, IaaS, third-party hosting, traditional on-premise deployments including Exalytics, and hybrid approaches.

This session will read between all marketing lines and discuss what’s possible and what’s a bit overstated. It will cover differences in functionality, data integration, security, flexibility, and scalability. Finally, we will evaluate the differences in costs, including hardware, software licensing, and ongoing maintenance.

If you are looking to make a decision on how best to deploy, upgrade, or outsource Oracle EPM this is a don’t miss webinar.
