Optimizing Oracle SQL, Intensive On location in Dallas TX Objective: This class is a 5-day intensive combination of material that would typically be covered in 7 days. Focus is directed towards the optimizer and understanding how it behaves when developing query execution plans. The importance of optimizing SQL at the resource usage level is learned and the Hotsos SQL Test Harness and Tools Pack scripts are used to facilitate the comparison of multiple approaches to writing SQL statements to discover the "performance optimal" choice among several approaches. Different approaches to writing high performance SQL are demonstrated as well as review of database design elements that can affect performance. Target Audience: The course is designed for application developers and database administrators who want to respond faster and more permanently to Oracle system performance problems that are known to be caused by inefficient application SQL code. Whether you are wanting to learn how to write new code that performs optimally from the start or are looking to update and maintain previously written code, this course teaches you the skills you need. We take you 'under the covers' to see how and why your SQL performs as it does and lead you to understand how to most effectively provide the Oracle optimizer with the information it needs to produce optimal execution plans. Simply put, if you write SQL, this class is for you! The course is most effective for students who will be motivated to solve real Oracle system performance problems immediately upon returning to work after the course. Prerequisites: Students are expected to have a working knowledge of Oracle SQL through experience either as a database administrator or application developer. Synopsis: This course is intended to teach students a repeatable and reliable method for optimizing SQL and to assimilate the new habit of testing optimization hypotheses rapidly during the performance improvement process. Instead of relying on “rules of thumb” and hit-and-miss guessing, this course helps the student understand the inner workings of the Oracle optimizer and how SQL execution paths are determined. Particular emphasis is placed on discovering how to capture, read, and understand execution plans and how to use 10053 trace data to follow the optimizer's plan selection. The student's attention is focused not upon rote learning and superficial understanding of Oracle rules of thumb, but upon a thorough understanding how the Oracle database works. The course is not just about learning how to write SQL. The course is about arming the student with the skills to be able to scientifically determine the efficiency of any SQL statement. While the course does offer alternative ways to write SQL in many cases, the primary objective is to equip the student to determine whether a statement is optimal and to achieve a deeper understanding of the cost-based optimizer. This course presents problem-solving strategies that can be carried forward directly to common problems and customized for solving less common ones. The result is a fortified foundation for optimizing SQL in ever more challenging situations.

Oracle ADF Task Flow Beyond the 10-Minute Demo John King, King Training Resources Tue, Apr 14, 2015 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MDT Oracle’s Application Development Framework (ADF) is an excellent tool for creating robust applications. Part of ADF’s strength is the built-in Model-View-Controller (MVC) design inherited from Java Server Faces (JSF). Using a series of XML files (of course), the flow of ADF Faces applications can be managed by the controller properly. The Task Flow process seems a little unwieldy to experienced UI developers, but the advantages of “not breaking” the Controller are worth it. In this session, you will see how ADF’s Task Flow may be used to quickly and easily manage the flow of an application.

Fulfilling Real-Time Analytics on Oracle BI Applications Platform, Shiv Bharti, Perficient Tue, Apr 21, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM MDT If you look under the hood of top-performing companies that consistently beat analyst expectations, you’re likely to find they have invested heavily in analytics and data management infrastructure to enable this real-time, competitive phenomena. If you’ve invested in Oracle BI Applications as a first step and now want to maximize that investment and be able to do real-time analytics with no latency, there are design and modeling steps to help get this started. Shiv Bharti, Perficient BI Practice Director, will host a webinar on this topic. It will cover: • What is real-time BI • Metadata modeling steps that can be taken to attain real-time analytic requirements, regardless of where the data resides • Architectural questions around mitigating the impact on Business Applications • Customer case study on a client who had 5,000+ reports on Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer and other legacy reporting tools, and wanted to build an enterprise-class data warehouse: Shiv addresses how the team approached laying out the roadmap and migration plan and architected the future capability for real-time requirements. • How Oracle BI Applications can be easily customized to fulfill these real-time reporting requirements by leveraging its architecture

Next Generation Archiving New uses for proven storage solutions in areas including media & entertainment, video surveillance and Thu, Apr 30, 2015 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MDT Social media, mobile, Big Data, cloud computing and litigation concerns are driving a new “keep everything, forever” data mentality. This is creating new opportunities for proven storage solutions including multi-tiered storage architectures for active archiving and cold storage environments. In these “at scale” data environments, storage efficiency is the uber metric for both sustainability and profitability. Employing the right combination of flash, spinning disk and highly economical tape storage in a single, integrated architecture is a key enabler for maximizing efficiency. Discover how Oracle’s storage solutions for active archiving and peta-scale cold storage are pushing the limits of storage efficiency, utilization and cost of ownership. We’ll also look at use cases in fast growing archiving markets such as media and entertainment, video surveillance and cloud service providers.
