How To Develop Solutions When The top "Event" Is "DB CPU" Wed, Jan 4, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MST How To Develop Solutions When The top "Event" Is "DB CPU" Overall performance is less than ideal as far as the users are concerned. After months of meetings, management finally wants you to get involved. You run an AWR report for one of the most intense hours and notice the top “event” is "DB CPU," followed by "cursor: pin S wait on X.” This is where the webinar begins! Craig will demonstrate how to do an Oracle time based analysis, looking at the OS and also the “top” SQL. This journey also includes a trip into Oracle’s library cache, serialization control and some interesting ways to improve SQL statement performance.

Agile Data Warehousing: Using Oracle Data Modeler (SDDM) to Build a Virtualized ODS, Kent Graziano, Snowflake Computing Tue, Jan 10, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MST At a past client, in order to meet timelines to fulfill urgent, unmet reporting needs, I found it necessary to build a virtualized Operational Data Store as the first phase of a new Data Vault 2.0 project. This allowed me to deliver new objects, quickly and incrementally to the report developer so we could quickly show the business users their data. In order to limit the need for refactoring in later stages of the data warehouse development, I chose to build this virtualization layer on top of a Type 2 persistent staging layer. All of this was done using Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (SDDM) against (gasp!) a MS SQL Server Database. In this talk I will show you the architecture for this approach, the rationale, and then the tricks I used in SDDM to build all the stage tables and views very quickly. In the end you will see actual SQL code for a virtual ODS that can easily be translated to an Oracle database.

Why Test Data Management is Key to Your Competitive Advantage Wednesday January 11, 2017, 11:00am - 12:00pm MST Every company is in a race to innovate, but far too often, data is the bottleneck that keeps application and project teams from delivering value at a competitive pace. According to a recent TechWell survey, for instance, nearly two-thirds of respondents said it takes too long to access test data. Yesterday's systems and processes can't keep up. With a proper test data management (TDM) strategy, businesses can remove data as a constraint and accelerate their application projects. Join this webinar to learn how advanced IT teams are taking a new approach to TDM to meet the needs of today's development and testing teams in order to unleash innovation at speed.
