Join ODTUG Expert’s Panel Webinar!

This is a live interactive panel similar to the ACE Lunch and Learn panels held at Kscope conferences. This innovative webinar is modeled after a call-in radio talk show. You will be able to chat a question to our organizer and if it is accepted you will have the option to verbally ask the question to our panel. Please be sure to have the proper equipment (headset and a quiet office) so that our panelists can clearly understand your question. You’ll also be able to participate in the discussion with the panel while they answer your question.

The following are some potential topics, but audience participation will shape the scope of the panel:

  • What are the top features of ODI 12c and can they be used in a typical data warehouse implementation?
  • Describe the migration from OWB to ODI 12c as it might occur in practice. Anything to watch out for?
  • What are some examples of customizations that you have made in ODI and why?
  • Interested in taking the ODI certification exam? We can talk about what was in the test, how to prepare for it, what to study, etc.
  • Using ODI to improve the Hyperion Planning/Essbase capabilities.

OTech Magazine – Winter 2014 issue

I was invited to write an article by Douwe Pieter van den Bos before UKOUG Tech’13 conference (actually he got me from my session of UKOUG Tech’13, which I couldn’t attend) and agreed to write an article for OTech Magazine. This magazine is fully non-vendored, independent and free to download magazine which Oracle technology experts write on their expertise.

My article “Future is now, ODI12c” which about Oracle Data Integrator 12c on page 120. I have collated Oracle’s public ODI12c documentation and summarised the most important features with my previous ODI experience. Besides me, there are really valuable information of Oracle experts and lots for Oracle technology, so enjoy reading!

2013 in review

Filed under: Uncategorized — gurcanorhan @ 12:52

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

TROUG at Oracle Day 2013 – Istanbul

As always, it is time for local Oracle Day events worldwide for the people who cannot made to Open World and would like to hear the summarisation of Open World. This year Oracle Day 2013 – Istanbul will be held in Istanbul Congress Center at 14th of November. Event main page and agenda is here. Thanks to Oracle Turkey for letting us present technically in TROUG stream in saloon 8.

It’s not only mine, but also attendees bad luck to have this presentation at the end of the day, but again, as in Open World, I will be speaking at the last session at 4:20 pm at the conference. Everybody would be hungry and I will talk about how to make a pizza… Challenging. :-)

We, as TROUG, prepared a surprise for you this year, but you need to register and come to the event to see/get this surprise. I made some changes to one of my Open World session (CON4067 – Delicious, EDQ&OGG&ODI on Exadata for perfection) and will present it in Turkish. My co-speaker will be Okcan Yasin Saygili, working at Oracle Turkey and fellow from TROUG management team.
