 apex.world On Air - Recognizing and Preventing Security Threats in APEX Applications: Part 2 of 2
Dan McGhan, and Joel Kallman, Oracle Corporation Juergen Schuster, IT-Beratung, ACE Director.jpgMartin D'Souza, Insum Solutions, ACE Director.jpgScott Spendolini,

These days, information security is of paramount concern. But are you taking all of the proper steps with your APEX applications to ensure that no vulnerabilities exist? Security is so critical - and often overlooked - that we’ve dedicated the next two episodes to covering it. In the first episode, we’ll cover the basics of APEX-related security - from the instance to page settings, XSS and SQLi, and everything in between. We’ll also take a look at some database features that should be considered. 

In the second episode, we’ll take a thorough look at three tools that can help automate the detection and mitigation of security vulnerabilities in your APEX applications - the built-in APEX Advisor, the commercially available ApexSec, and the open source tool APEX-SERT. While each of these tools is slightly different, the aim is the same: to assist in identifying potential threats and help developers mitigate them as efficiently as possible.

 HFM to FCCS Cloud Metadata Conversion Process  
Abhi Nerurkar, EPMWare

Ready to move from HFM to FCCS with the latest updates from Oracle Corporation? In a live environment, we will demonstrate how
to load your HFM metadata file into EPMware, map dimensions and convert it into an FCCS application, and deploy metadata
to the cloud without having to learn any EPM Automate scripting. EPMware simplifies your move from HFM to Oracle's FCCS,
allows several team members to build an FCCS hierarchy concurrently, and provides an audit trail of the entire
conversion process.

Accelerating Testing Using Data Virtualization
Tim Gorman, Delphix

How much testing do you perform in your BI/DW environments? Do you even have a test environment? Do you test in production?

The biggest problem with testing in BI and DW environments is the size and velocity of data. Databases and applications have grown enormous and complex. "Storage is cheap" is simply not true. Need proof? Ask for 10 TB to provision a new test environment.

Provisioning a full environment for each developer or tester on each task of each project appears unrealistic, when each might require several terabytes or even petabytes of storage. And so everyone is limited to working in a small handful of shared environments that are refreshed only every few months, if ever, and both code quality and data quality suffer.

Data virtualization is the solution. Using thin-provisioning technologies, virtual databases and file systems only consume space from changed blocks, so it is possible to provision virtual terabytes for only a few actual megabytes. Coders and testers have full and independent read-write environments provided quickly in which to develop and test, improving code quality. Learn about the technical details behind this solution.

When I first heard about data virtualization, it sounded far-fetched, just a trick. Instead, it is the perfect solution to the perfect storm of more data quickly. Every IT shop will need to know how to provision test environments faster using less storage. It's not a matter of "if," but "when."

Explore the APEX APIs
Martin D'Souza, Insum Solutions

Most developers new to APEX aren’t aware that APEX comes with a plethora of very powerful APIs for both PL/SQL and JavaScript. This presentation will highlight some of these APIs and explain how and when to use them to speed up and simplify developing your APEX applications. New 5.1 APIs will also be discussed.

Barriers to Oracle Database in IaaS Cloud
Tim Gorman, Delphix

IaaS cloud vendors, such as AWS, prefer that everyone migrate to the cloud, but what often happens is that non-production migrates for cost reasons but production stays on-premises. This phased path to the cloud can leave IT with a split personality: production on-premises on legacy proprietary UNIX platforms, non-production in the cloud on commodity Linux platforms. 

Because the security risk on non-production systems is much higher than production, there is a requirement to mask personally identifiable information or confidential data before it is copied to non-production. Data virtualization employs thin cloning, snapshots, and network-attached data presentation, reducing cloning from hours or days to minutes. But there is more: your legacy UNIX (i.e. AIX, Solaris, HP-UX) databases aren't going anywhere off-premises because the cloud is based on Intel (i.e. Linux, Windows). So what to do? 

In this session, learn how data virtualization and data masking make "split-brain IT" not just possible but desirable.
