RMOUG Training Days 2013 is proud to announce a new way to manage the event with the Guidebook Mobile App sponsored by Arisant.   This application is available for download to all Apple and Android products.  With a simple click of the “download guide” of the RMOUG guidebook, the attendee will be able to view schedules, build their own schedule and create reminders to notify them when it’s time for the session, event or keynote.  Read biographies of your favorite presenters, information about the great supporters and exhibitors at the conference, along with crucial daily updates.  Twitter and Facebook links allows the attendee to interact with the conference via social media and network with the conference like never before.

  2. Once installed click on the Guidebook App Icon (pictured above) and then Select Download Guides.
  3. Search for RMOUG and select it (the RMOUG Training Days App will now be downloaded to your phone).
  4. Now that you have the FREE RMOUG Training Days App you can begin to build your schedule using the “Schedule” icon or — even better you can use the “Tracks” icon.

Essbase Calculations – Observations from the Road
Chris Chase, Managing Partner @ The Bean Consulting Group

With nearly 25 years experience in software and database technology I thought I had seen all that programming had to offer; then I discovered Essbase. Learn some interesting observations regarding Essbase calculations accumulated over nearly 10 years of Hyperion implementations. We will discuss aggregations, allocations, eliminations, and driver-based calculations, commands and functions specific to Hyperion Planning, and some of the more confounding aspects such as block creation and cross dimensional operators.


9:25 am -10:25 am
Sherlock Holmes for the DBA
Kellyn Pot’Vin, Senior Technical Consultant @ Enkitec

The DBA has numerous tools, some requiring additional licenses, some standard to any environment. When problems arise, often the administrator is expected to, not only identify, but also correct the problem without impact and in short order. This presentation goes over a number of common Oracle errors and performance issues, showing what tools, tracing to AWR reports, along with how to utilize these to quickly assess a strategy to address problems when they develop to lessen the challenge to managing these types of environments.

Attendees will leave the session with a better understanding of trouble-shooting techniques and when to use what features, tools and reports to address issues.


10:35 am -11:35 am
Introduction to SOA and Oracle SOA Suite
Brian Statkevicus, Senior Consultant @ ECS Team and Greg Opie, Director of Architecture @ ECS Team

Almost everyone has heard of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Some people can accurately describe what it is and isn’t. This introductory session will cover:

• What is SOA?
• What are the business problems solved by implementing SOA?
• Oracle’s SOA Suite
• Demo of a sample business process using SOA Suite
• SOA Case Study


11:45 am – 12:45 pm
CTO’s Perspective on Adding Geo-spatial and Location-Based Information to Your Data
Bradley Brown, CEO/CTO @ InteliVideo

There is a considerable amount of free geo-spatial data available from the government and open source groups. This information can be quite helpful at providing more information about location-based data. For example, if you’re a property management company and you wanted to know close each of your properties are for anything from grocery stores to railroad tracks to flood plains, all of this information is available. If you wanted to know which homes are on a specific golf course, this data is available for free too.

In this presentation, Brad will share what geo-spatial data is available, where you can download the data, and what you might use the information for. You can also create your own layers of information and merge this into your queries. All of this can be done using an Oracle database (even the free version of Oracle) – i.e. without a mapping tool like ESRI. You can easily overlay this information onto Google maps or Google Earth. Brad will share PL/SQL code that will extract shapes into KML
