ODTUG Launches Innovation Award
ODTUG is excited to announce the formation of the ODTUG Innovation Award. The ODTUG Innovation Award honors excellence in creative, effective, innovative use of Oracle development tools within ODTUG's supported communities (ADF, APEX, BI, Database, and EPM). The goal is to honor developers – individuals or teams – whose passion and creativity shine through in their application of Oracle technology to address real-world problems.
We are looking for innovative, exceptional, ahead-of-the-curve applications of Oracle development tools that stand out as examples of “the next big thing” in Oracle technology or as unusually creative applications of new and emerging Oracle tools. Find out more here.

Learn How You Can Streamline and Optimize Your Reporting Process in the Cloud with EPRCS
Vince Tran, Vertical Edge Consulting Group
Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service (EPRCS) is a purpose-built solution in the cloud for management and narrative reporting. It provides a secure, collaborative, process-driven approach for defining, authoring, reviewing, and publishing financial and management report packages for internal and external stakeholders.
The current integration of narrative into performance-reporting processes is often manual, ad hoc, and highly prone to error. New cloud-based solutions, such as Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service, enable organizations to streamline internal and external reporting processes, combining data plus narrative in a single, secure, collaborative environment.

Enhancing Data Governance with Oracle Data Relationship Management
Julia Radovani, Peloton
Master data management and data governance solutions are becoming more mainstream as organizations continue finding new insights from their data. With the rapid expansion and adoption of enterprise systems, a great need has emerged for enabling technology to drive the timely collaboration and enrichment of master data structures. At the same time, transparency and controls continue to be important features of data governance processes. This webinar will highlight Oracle Data Relationship Management (DRM) with a particular focus on the streamlined workflow data governance request and approvals enabled by the Data Relationship Governance (DRG) module.

Taking Source Filters to the Next Level
Francisco Amores Torres, Infratects
Some source systems such as Universal Data Adapter allow passing parameters to filter out data when importing it into FDMEE. These source filters are defined statically when creating data load rules, but sometimes we have requirements where filter values need to be dynamically passed to the data extract process. During this webinar, we will see how to take source filters to the next level to provide a flexible data extract process.

Translate APEX Project
Aljaž Mali, Abakus Plus, and Przemysław Staniszewski, Pretius
If your Oracle Application Express application uses a language that is not among the 10 languages into which APEX is translated, you must translate messages displayed by the APEX reporting engine. On November 30, 2015, Pretius (www.pretius.com) launched the translate-apex.com website. This project is the collection of free translations of APEX internal messages to help the APEX Community develop applications in something other than 10 default languages. The website allows you to browse translations (over 30 different languages available so far), download installation script for any APEX version starting from 3.0, and share your translation with others. All translations are available for free and have been created by the APEX Community.
At the same time, Aljaz Mali of Abakus Plus was working on an application that helps you to centralize, consolidate, and simplify management of APEX text messages. This application was released during the APEX World conference as part of OraOpenSource project. During this presentation, we will discuss the APEX translation project and how it has connected over 30 APEX developers from all around the world. We will also show practical use of the www.translate-apex.com website and how you can use the APEX translation application to simplify management of APEX text messages and the localization process.
