My Favorite Enterprise Blockchain Articles

David Haimes - Tue, 2019-05-14 07:47

For the past few years I have been working on Blockchain for Enterprises, and I get a lot of questions about where to get started.  There are a lot of complicated explanations about the technology of blockchain, but I try to talk about how Blockchain (or Distributed Ledger Technology) is different to traditional databases; where it can be useful and how it will be adopted.  If these things interest you too, then you will find the articles below a good starting point.  I’m thrilled that I have had articles published in some prestigious publications, I hope you enjoy them.  As always, I love feedback and discussions so please share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Forbes: 4 Real World Blockchain Use Cases

These four design patterns are a good way to categorize use cases and also stimulate ideas for use cases in your industry.

Channel Futures: Making Sense of Where Blockchain Can Impact Your Business

This is a more comprehensive (but very readable) explanation of the four patterns of use cases in a guest blog post I authored back in 2017.

Wall Street Journal: Why Blockchain Will Fundamentally Change Corporate Finance

This article captures a lot of important points in how back office functions will be impacted by Blockchain technology.

Database Trends and Applications: Why Permissioned Blockchain Technology Is Important to Enterprises

My article explains how blockchains are different to a database and why for some applications they are a better option.  It was exciting to have this highlighted on the cover of the print edition last year.

Forbes: What Will Spark The Blockchain Explosion?

Some thoughts on where we will see the enterprise uptakes and what factors are needed for the “Killer App” to evolve.

Bloomberg Accounting Blog: Lack of Consensus Reigns with Blockchain

I was interviewed for this article after presenting at a conference, I like that they opened with:

“one of the common bifurcations of blockchain types is between private and public blockchains, such as explained here in a blog on the AICPA website. David Haimes, believes this to be a “false dichotomy.”

The article is a good read and I get to explain the differences between Permissioned versus Permissionless Blockchain networks.

Extended Support Fee Waived for Oracle Database 12.1 and 11.2 for Oracle E-Business Suite

Steven Chan - Wed, 2019-04-10 15:52

Oracle's Lifetime Support policy has three phases:  Premier Support, Extended Support, and Sustaining Support.  For details about coverage during each phase, see:

You can purchase a support plan for your licensed products to obtain Premier Support.  There is an additional fee for Extended Support.

Due to the certification timing of Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Database versions beyond 12.1, Oracle has waived Extended Support fees for Oracle Database 12.1 and 11.2 for Oracle Database licenses used for Oracle E-Business Suite through December 2020.

DSTv32 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite 12.2 and 12.1

Steven Chan - Wed, 2019-04-03 10:59

The DSTv33 timezone upgrade is now available and certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2 and 12.1. Note that DST patches are cumulative and therefore include all previous Oracle DST updates.

How Does Oracle E-Business Suite Work Across Timezones?

Periodically, many countries or regions change their timezone definitions. In addition, and more frequently, they may switch to or from Daylight Saving Time or Summer Time.

If your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is configured to support doing business across multiple timezones, you need to keep your timezone definition files up-to-date by applying patches as described in this article. This will ensure that the times transactions take place are recorded correctly, and thereby meet applicable business and legal requirements.

Is My Oracle E-Business Suite Environment Affected?

When a country or region changes its timezone definitions or DST rules, your Oracle E-Business Suite environment will require patching if either of the following is true:

  • Your EBS environment is located in the affected country or region.
  • Your EBS environment is located outside the affected country or region, but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers there.

The following are major additions or changes in the DSTv33 timezones definitions compared to the previous release:

  • Most of Chile now ends DST on the first Saturday in April (starting 6-Apr-19) and resumes DST in September.
  • Morocco switches to permanent +01 on 2018-10-27.
  • Volgograd moves from +03 to +04 on 2018-10-28.
  • Fiji ends DST 2019-01-13, not 2019-01-20.
  • Use of "PST" and "PDT" for Philippines time.
What Patches Do I Require?

The following MOS note identifies the various components in your Oracle E-Business Suite environment that may need DST patches:

What if I Do Not Apply the Relevant Patches?

If you do business with a country or region that has changed its timezone definitions, and record a transaction that occurs at the boundary between the “old” and the “new” time, then the transaction may be recorded incorrectly. Specifically, that transaction's timestamp may be out by an hour.
