2016 CodeTalk Series: Simplifying Effective Date Range Queries with Temporal Validity
Original Broadcast: March 23, 2016
Storing changes to data over time is a common requirement. For example, many businesses like to keep a historic record of customer address changes or product price updates. Data warehouse developers frequently need to store history in slowly changing dimensions.
Typically these requirements are implemented by adding effective from and to date columns to tables. This requires developers to write convoluted select statements to find the rows active at a given point in time. This is error prone and open to interpretation by developers, making applications harder to maintain.
Introduced in 12c, temporal validity provides a standard way to write queries using effective date ranges. Implementing this helps improve developer productivity by simplifying SQL and providing a consistent method for managing time series data. Watch this session to see how you can easily adopt this on your 12c databases.

Oracle on POWER® with Appliance Ease
Original Broadcast: Tuesday, October 6, 2015
Conservative estimates show that there are nearly 400,000 Oracle users, and more than 70,000 of them run their databases on IBM Power Systems. This IT power couple offers the premier hardware and software environment to manage any business, anywhere.
But there are serious complexities, high-dollar expenses and lengthy timelines to successfully provision, setup, deploy, and maintain an Oracle on POWER® system like this, and in addition, because Oracle and IBM have expanded their products to include Oracle Hardware and IBM Software, there is no available guidance or expertise on how to provision and deploy this unique system.
And finally, the need for faster solutions from shadow IT has caused the appliance marketplace to quickly expanded offering in-the-box software-on-server solutions. While these appliances do offer faster time to value, they lack in performance and often require significant investment and even on-site expertise.
Vendita Technology Group has partnered with Oracle, IBM and Avnet, and developed a solution that puts Oracle Database on POWER8™ without the need for lengthy provisioning times, onsite expertise, and complex long-term license maintenance. The Database Cloud Appliance is software, server, storage and networking, expertly provisioned for zero deployment times, easily scalable to the enterprise level.

VMware SIG Webcast: Migrating Oracle from Unix to the Cloud
Original Broadcast: Tuesday, October 20, 2015
Enterprise applications have traditionally run Oracle on big iron Unix environments over the past two decades. With the ever increasing capabilities of modern multi core x86 processors, the differences in performance and stability between RISC-based Unix systems and x86-based Linux and Windows systems has greatly narrowed. We can leverage these advances to migrate traditional Unix Oracle databases to Cloud platforms (both public and private) and drastically reduce TCO. By moving to the Cloud and running on the latest hardware, Oracle gets improved performance and scalability. High Availability and Disaster Recovery for Oracle is also simplified. This webcast will discuss market trends, business processes and migration tools, like Connecteré, to move Oracle from Unix to the Cloud.
Customers across the enterprise have adopted the on-premise private database cloud and embraced database-as-a-service. Oracle technology is constantly evolving and adapting and Oracle Public Cloud is moving at lightning speeds across the IT industry. Security concerns between the private and public cloud has been the inhibitor for public cloud adoption, but significant advances have been made over the years. Encryption and tunnel technologies have bridged the security void that existed between the private cloud and the public cloud.
We are close to Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) and dramatic changes to Oracle's Public Cloud have been made throughout this year. Come listen to the Cloud Experts, Nitin Vengurlekar and Charles Kim, in this part #1 series discuss the drastic progress made to Oracle Public Cloud (OPC).

VMware SIG Webcast: Myth-Defied! Busting the Myths of Database Virtualization
Original Broadcast: September 10, 2015
Perhaps, if you have been living under a rock on a far distant planet, void of anything technical and perhaps, if the internet is not delivered directly to your home, work, phone or car then perhaps, just perhaps, you have not heard of the IT rage known as ‘Virtualization’. The more likely scenario, however, is that you, the Oracle professional, receive daily messages from more vendors than you can count, all espousing the ease and virtue of ‘Private Clouds’, ‘Public Clouds’, and ‘Platform as a Service’ encouraging you to make the virtualization leap today or be left behind tomorrow…
Yet amidst all of these choices and clamor, how do you find the truth? More importantly, as a concerned Oracle professional, should you even consider placing your most valuable data assets within a virtual infrastructure? Can mission-critical Oracle databases even run on virtual infrastructures? What is fact? What is myth? And in the end, where does this all lead?
In 2008, Indiana University grappled with many of these questions and more, ultimately arriving at a multi-year strategy which has allowed the institution to successfully migrate all enterprise class, mission-critical systems to the virtual infrastructure. Busting database virtualization myths and taboos, the University realized seven figure cost savings and experienced clear operational improvements, all while supporting the data needs of more than 120,000 students, faculty and staff.
Bring your hardhats and safety goggles as we explore various Oracle database virtualization myths both BUSTED and CONFIRMED based upon the University’s years of virtualized database experience.

Want to learn how to make Oracle and PeopleSoft application changes fast, reliably and compliant?
Due to time constraints and overloaded schedules, Oracle Application business analysts and super users sometimes take short-cuts and make unauthorized changes directly in their production environment. Why? The changes are usually in response to an application problem that needs a fix ASAP. So what? Well, the changes may fix the issue with the application but it may create other issues since the formal change management process wasn’t followed, increasing risk of audit and compliance issues as well as increasing the risk of future application outages.
During this 45-minute webinar, you will learn how to:
Generate detailed change reports & comprehensive audit trails for Oracle E-Business Suite & PeopleSoft Applications
Automate migration of application setup objects between multiple instances and across multiple environments -reducing migration time by 75% or more on your Oracle R12 projects
Perform impact analysis to show how patches will affect objects
Schedule automated deployments and recovery capabilities
