My video at Oracle Media Network

In Oracle Open World 2011 (last year), I had a video session and that video was hidden somewhere in Oracle up to now. Now it is visible and you can able to watch it either below or with this link.


Technologist of the Year 2011 : Enterprise Architect

I have honored with the award of Oracle Excellence Awards, Technologist of the Year 2011 : Enterprise Architect. This award is formerly known as Oracle Magazine’s Editors’ Choice : Enterprise Architect of the Year.

Although this seems to be a personal award, it surely is related to team. I’d like to thank a lot to the team members/managers who are supporting me both in Turkcell Technology, Turkcell and Oracle. I am proud to be a part of this brilliant team. But I need to emphasize Mr. Hasan Tonguc Yilmaz for his superior support. I feel him beside me all the time. Thank You Tonguc.

As far as I know I am the first and only guy to receive such award who is using ODI (Oracle Data Integator) and this is important to mention. I am accepting and dedicating this award to all ODI developers, architects and administrators all over the world.

One more thing, this is the second award that a Turkish Oracle guy receives it, the first one was Husnu Sensoy who got the 2009 DBA of the Year award. I am also proud to bring Turkey second award for Oracle.

Award trophy would be presented in Oracle Open World 2011 and will be announced in Oracle Magazine’s January-February 2012 issue.

Turkcell, the third-largest mobile operator in Europe and Turkey’s largest, turned to Oracle data integration solutions to handle multiple challenges in its data stores. These challenges include moving massive amounts of call records, dealing with poor maintenance due to ETL architecture, and managing large operations data stores of over 5 TB. This presentation describes how Oracle Data Integrator, Oracle GoldenGate, and Oracle Exadata played a critical role through complete heterogeneous and integrated solutions to help solve its data integration and management issues.
