Integration Solution with DRM and ODI at a Global Technology Company, Cuong Nguyen Tien, MindStream Analytics Tue, Mar 7, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MST Are you tired of dealing with the issues when doing your monthly master data updates? In this session, you will learn how to automate the process of mastering hierarchies in Data Relationship Management (DRM) and pushing them to downstream applications via Oracle Data Integrator (ODI). DRM is an industry-leading MDM tool. At our client, multiple entry points were being utilized where hierarchy information was being stored and updated. The objective of our project was to create a central repository or foundation that would allow for hierarchy changes to be made once and then propagated to multiple systems via ODI. The audience will learn how DRM and ODI can integrate with various systems and ultimately can save time and money for the company.

How To Tell If There Is An OS Memory Shortage Tue, Mar 7, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MST How To Tell If There Is An OS Memory Shortage An operating system memory shortage can cause very strange and intense performance situations. In this webinar, we will explore different ways to tell if there is a memory shortage and how this affects Oracle processes.

And of course, we will also be monitoring the active Oracle sessions, key SQL statement elapsed times and key throughput metrics. As you will see, a memory bottleneck (rather, memory pressure) can cause some really strange performance behavior.

Stop treating your database as a bit bucket and start using the advanced features available in the database. If you use the database to its full extent, you will not only see an increase in performance of your application, but also an increase of the productivity of the developers. The database is one of the most important assets to your application. It is also one of the most expensive parts in your application. Most organizations don’t get the most out of their database license and treat it like a simple bit bucket. The modern Oracle database can do so much more than just store data.
