Apache Spark for Oracle Developers

Tue, 2017-04-11 01:27
In the last few years, business problems that have been traditionally solved using databases are now being solved using other technologies. Apache Spark is one of the emerging technologies which is used for large scale data processing.

Attend the free webinar by Ivan Lokic and learn how you can use Apache Spark in Big Data applications.  


About the Webinar:
Apache Spark is a general computing engine designed for large-scale data processing. Many well-known companies use it to process petabytes of data on 8000+ nodes with long running jobs measured in weeks.


In this webinar, you will learn about:
  • Apache Spark and how Spark relates to (traditional) Hadoop MapReduce technology
  • What makes Spark so fast
  • How to use the rich set of Spark API’s to design and run your ETL jobs
  • Apache Spark streaming capabilities for near real-time updates and its role in Big Data processing scenarios
  • Structured Streaming, a scalable and fault tolerant stream processing engine which makes near real-time processing scenarios even easier
The webinar is free but space is limited.

How to Upgrade an Oracle-based Application without Downtime

Wed, 2017-02-08 11:32
One of most common reasons IT departments avoid database development is the belief that an application upgrade in the database causes downtime. However, nothing can be further from the truth. On the contrary, Oracle Database provides one of the most bullet proof ways to upgrade an application without any downtime: Edition Based Redefinition (EBR)

EBR is a powerful and fascinating feature of Oracle (added in version 11.2), that enables application upgrades with zero downtime, while the application is actively used and operational.

Attend the free webinar by Oren Nakdimon on February 16th to learn how to use EBR, see many live examples, and get tips from real-life experience in a production site using EBR extensively.

The webinar is free but space is limited.

Version Control for PL/SQL

Tue, 2017-01-24 12:14
Let's get this straight:

  • It is possible to put PL/SQL in proper version control. 
  • It is possible to have developers work on the same logical code unit (package, procedure, function etc...) at the same time without co-ordinating first. 
  • It is possible to merge these changes at a later time automatically. 
  • It is possible to eliminate all the errors resulting from manual preparation of deployment scripts. 
  • It is possible to build an automated continuous delivery pipeline for PL/SQL.

If you'd like to know how, attend our free webinar. Register at this link.

PostgreSQL for Oracle Developers and DBA's

Tue, 2017-01-03 16:16
PostgreSQL is not very well known among Oracle developers and DBA’s. Yet, the skill set of an Oracle developer or a DBA is easily portable to PostgreSQL.
There is no one better than Joshua D. Drake to teach you PostgreSQL and show you how you can migrate from Oracle to PostgreSQL.
Attend Joshua's free webinar and earn how you can benefit from PostgreSQL, the leading free and open source alternative to the Oracle Database.

About The Presenter:

Joshua D. Drake is an Open Source Consultant specializing in Linux and PostgreSQL. He has been consulting on PostgreSQL since 1996. Throughout his PostgreSQL career he has performed a variety of functions within the community including submitting a patch or two, releasing an O'Reilly book on PostgreSQL as well as being part of the sysadmins and advocacy teams. Further he ran a biannual conference series dedicated to PostgreSQL between the years of 2007 - 2011. He is former Director (2008-2016) for SPI (the non-profit for PostgreSQL.org). He is also a Founder, and current Director of United States PostgreSQL. Lastly, he is a core member of PgConf US.

About The Webinar:

Even if your organization is an Oracle customer. there are many use cases where PostgreSQL can be an affordable alternative to the Oracle Database. In this webinar, Joshua will discuss the in and outs, ups and downs of migrating from Oracle to PostgreSQL.

The presentation will include PostgreSQL differences, limitations and discussion of commercial needs such as custom features and support.

Attendees should plan on walking away with a comprehensive understanding of the differences of the two products and how to make PostgreSQL work best for their projects.

The webinar is free but space is limited.

Success Story: Version Control for PL/SQL

Mon, 2016-12-26 15:43
It’s been a little over three months since we released Gitora 2.0 and the first success stories have started to emerge. Here is one of them:


Rhenus Logistics, the leading logistics company from Germany uses Gitora to manage their Oracle Database.
Problem
Rhenus IT uses both Java and PL/SQL to serve their users and customers. They have a team of about 10 PL/SQL developers. The team manages more than 20,000 database packages, views, functions, procedures, object types and triggers spread over 30+ database schemas.
Rhenus IT wanted to move to a continuous delivery environment in which they can be more agile and deliver solutions to the business faster. Managing the PL/SQL code was the hardest piece of the puzzle.
Solution
After experimenting with other solutions in the market, Rhenus decided to move forward with Gitora.


Gitora enabled Rhenus Developers to:
  • Use Git, the prominent open source version control system used by millions of developers.
  • Move their database code between development and various staging databases automatically.
  • Move code between source and target databases very fast because Gitora only executes differences between source and target databases, without comparing the code bases in both databases first (which can be very time consuming).
  • Enforce check-in, check-out of database objects at the database level.
  • Automate build process for the database code using Gitora API’s.
  • Implement an affordable continuous delivery solution compared to alternatives.
Michiel Arentsen, the System Architect at Rhenus who implemented the solution at Rhenus has started an excellent blog in which he writes about his Gitora implementation. We highly recommend you to check it out. Below are the list of blog posts he wrote which should be very useful to anyone who is currently implementing Gitora at his/her company:

Version Control for PL/SQL

Mon, 2016-09-26 07:13
Today, we are happy to announce the new version of Gitora, Gitora 2.0, the version control tool for PL/SQL developers.



Gitora helps PL/SQL developers manage their source code in Git easily. It helps them lock database objects to prevent edits from other users regardless of the editor they use, create, change branches, merge code from other schemas or databases and see the source code in the database change instantly, generate diff scripts automatically and automate processes for continuous integration.

Gitora is the easiest and fastest way to put your source code in version control and improve your database development practices. It requires no client machine installation (all installation is server side), and is free to use for one database.
