Jonathan Lewis - Mon, 2018-10-22 11:36

Sometimes a good thing becomes at bad thing when you hit some sort of special case – today’s post is an example of this that came up on the Oracle-L listserver a couple of years ago with a question about what the optimizer was doing. I’ll set the scene by creating some data to reproduce the problem:


rem
rem     Script:         distinct_key_prob.sql
rem     Author:         Jonathan Lewis
rem     Dated:          Apr 2016
rem     Purpose:
rem
rem     Last tested

rem             12.1.0.2

rem

drop table t1 purge;

create table t1
nologging
as
with generator as (
        select  --+ materialize
                rownum id
        from dual 
        connect by 
                level <= 1e4 -- > commment to avoid wordpress format issue
)
select
        cast(mod(rownum-1,10) as number(8,0))   non_null,
        cast(null as number(8,0))               null_col,
        cast(lpad(rownum,10) as varchar2(10))   small_vc,
        cast(rpad('x',100) as varchar2(100))    padding
from
        generator       v1,
        generator       v2
where
        rownum <= 1e6 -- > commment to avoid wordpress format issue
;

create index t1_i1 on t1(null_col, non_null);

begin

/*
        dbms_output.put_line(
                dbms_stats.create_extended_stats(user,'t1','(non_null, null_col)')
        );
*/

        dbms_stats.gather_table_stats(
                ownname          => user,
                tabname          =>'T1',
                method_opt       => 'for all columns size 1'
        );
end;
/

So I have a table with 1,000,000 rows; one of its columns is always null and another has a very small number of distinct values and is never null (though it hasn’t been declared as not null). I’ve created an index that starts with the “always null” column (in a production system we’d really be looking at a column that was “almost always” null and have a few special rows where the column was not null, so an index like this can make sense).

I’ve also got a few lines, commented out, to create extended stats on the column group (non_null, null_col) because any anomaly relating to the handling of the number of distinct keys in a multi-column index may also be relevant to column groups. I can run two variations of this code, one with the index, one without the index but with the column group, and see the same cardinality issue appearing in both cases.

So let’s execute a couple of queries – after setting up a couple of bind variables – and pull their execution plans from memory:


variable b_null    number
variable b_nonnull number

exec :b_null    := 5
exec :b_nonnull := 5

set serveroutput off

prompt  ===================
prompt  Query null_col only
prompt  ===================

select  count(small_vc)
from    t1
where
        null_col = :b_null
;

select * from table(dbms_xplan.display_cursor(null,null,'-plan_hash'));

prompt  =========================
prompt  Query (null_col,non_null)
prompt  =========================

select  count(small_vc)
from    t1
where
        null_col = :b_null
and     non_null = :b_nonnull
;

select * from table(dbms_xplan.display_cursor(null,null,'-plan_hash'));

The optimizer has statistics that tell it that null_col is always null so its estimate of rows where null_col = 5 should be zero (which will be rounded up to 1); and we have an index starting with null_col so we might expect the optimizer to use an index range scan on that index for these queries. Here are the plans that actually appeared:


SQL_ID  danj9r6rq3c7g, child number 0
-------------------------------------
select count(small_vc) from t1 where  null_col = :b_null

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Id  | Operation                    | Name  | Rows  | Bytes | Cost (%CPU)| Time     |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|   0 | SELECT STATEMENT             |       |       |       |     2 (100)|          |
|   1 |  SORT AGGREGATE              |       |     1 |    24 |            |          |
|   2 |   TABLE ACCESS BY INDEX ROWID| T1    |     1 |    24 |     2   (0)| 00:00:01 |
|*  3 |    INDEX RANGE SCAN          | T1_I1 |     1 |       |     2   (0)| 00:00:01 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Predicate Information (identified by operation id):
---------------------------------------------------
   3 - access("NULL_COL"=:B_NULL)



SQL_ID  d8kbtq594bsp0, child number 0
-------------------------------------
select count(small_vc) from t1 where  null_col = :b_null and non_null =
:b_nonnull

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Id  | Operation          | Name | Rows  | Bytes | Cost (%CPU)| Time     |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
|   0 | SELECT STATEMENT   |      |       |       |  2189 (100)|          |
|   1 |  SORT AGGREGATE    |      |     1 |    27 |            |          |
|*  2 |   TABLE ACCESS FULL| T1   |   100K|  2636K|  2189   (4)| 00:00:11 |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Predicate Information (identified by operation id):
---------------------------------------------------
   2 - filter(("NULL_COL"=:B_NULL AND "NON_NULL"=:B_NONNULL))

Take a careful look at what we’ve got: the second query has to access exactly the same table rows as those identified by the first query and then apply a second predicate which may discard some of those rows – but the optimizer has changed the access path from a low-cost index-driven access to a high cost tablescan. This is clearly idiotic – there has to be a flaw in the optimizer logic in this situation.

The defect revolves around a slight inconsistency in the handling of columns groups – whether they are explicitly created, or simply inferred by reference to user_indexes.distinct_keys. The anomaly is most easily seen by explicitly creating the column group, gathering stats, and reporting from user_tab_cols.


select
        column_name, sample_size, num_distinct, num_nulls, density, histogram, data_default
from
        user_tab_cols
where
        table_name = upper('T1')
order by
        column_id

;

COLUMN_NAME			       Sample	  Distinct  NUM_NULLS	 DENSITY HISTOGRAM	 DATA_DEFAULT
-------------------------------- ------------ ------------ ---------- ---------- --------------- --------------------------------------------
NON_NULL			    1,000,000		10	    0	      .1 NONE
NULL_COL						 0    1000000	       0 NONE
SMALL_VC			    1,000,000	   995,008	    0 .000001005 NONE
PADDING 			    1,000,000		 1	    0	       1 NONE
SYS_STULC#01EE$DE1QB7UY1K4$PBI	    1,000,000		10	    0	      .1 NONE		 SYS_OP_COMBINED_HASH("NON_NULL","NULL_COL")

As you can see, the optimizer can note that “null_col” is always null so the arithmetic for “null_col = :bind1” is going to produce a very small cardinality estimate; on the other hand when the optimizer sees “null_col = :bind1 and non_null = :bind2” it’s going to transform this into the single predicate “SYS_STULC#01EE$DE1QB7UY1K4$PBI = sys_op_combined_hash(null_col, non_null)”, and the statistics say there are 10 distinct values for this (virtual) column with no nulls – hence the huge cardinality estimate and full tablescan.

The “slight inconsistency” in handling that I mentioned above is that if you used a predicate like “null_col is null and non_null = :bind2″ the optimizer would not use column group because of the “is null” condition – even though it’s exactly the case where the column group statistics would be appropriate. (In the example I’ve constructed the optimizer’s estimate from ignoring the column group would actually be correct – and identical to the estimate it would get from using the column group – because the column is null for every single row.)

tl;dr

Column groups can give you some very bad estimates, and counter-intuitive behaviour, if any of the columns in the group has a significant percentage of nulls; this happens because the column group makes the optimizer lose sight of the number of nulls in the underlying data set.

Press Release
Oracle Arms Organizations with a Better Way to Build Subscription Business Models Innovative end-to-end subscription management solution enables organizations across industries to create new revenue streams

Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, Calif.—Oct 22, 2018

To enable businesses in any industry to adapt to changing buyer behavior and embrace subscription business models, Oracle today announced Oracle Subscription Management. By integrating front and back office business processes on one platform, Oracle Subscription Management allows organizations to build predictable, recurring revenue models by providing an end-to-end subscription solution that manages billing and revenue recognition and also informs customer-facing personnel with a complete view of purchasing behavior.

Oracle Subscription Management

Oracle Subscription Management arms organizations with a better way to build subscription business models.

“With technology now woven into every facet of society, it has not just changed our expectations, but re-wired our brains and altered our values,” said Rondy Ng, SVP Application Development, Oracle. “Today’s consumers value freedom, choice, convenience and flexibility over permanence, stability and certainty. This shifting value set is fundamentally changing buying behavior across industries. To help our customers successfully navigate these changes, we are introducing an end-to-end subscription management solution that builds on our strength in ERP and customer experience management. This uniquely positions Oracle to support hybrid product and subscription business models on the same platform.”  

Flexibility, choice and immediacy are now table stakes for both business and consumer buyers. As a result, the very notion of ownership is being questioned. This is forcing organizations across industries to rethink established business models to accommodate changing buyer behavior and new consumption models. To help organizations embrace these changes and meet shifting buyer demands, Oracle Subscription Management supports end-to-end subscription experiences that span sales, service, fulfillment, invoicing, revenue recognition, customer success, satisfaction and renewals.

With the addition of Oracle Subscription Management, Oracle enables organizations to operate hybrid product and service/subscription business models on the same platform. This allows organizations in all industries to embrace new consumption models to generate additional revenue from goods and services. The innovative new subscription management solution enables organizations to:

  • Support Subscriptions Across All Customer Touchpoints: Omnichannel support provides renewal specialists, service agents, sales reps and customers with a consistent subscription experience.

  • Increase Subscription Revenues Through Powerful Customer Insights: Rich analytics and reporting tools provide a full view of customer programs through a single view of key KPIs and powerful analytics to optimize funnel conversion. In addition, continuous insights help drive new deal activity by empowering agents to initiate, upgrade, terminate and co-term customers.

  • Orchestrate the Full Customer Lifecycle: Unified front and back office processes—from outbound communication to renewals and charges—provide powerful insights into new deal activity, opportunities and buying habits. In addition, customers can support full revenue recognition within core ERP systems, calculate complex and recurring pricing models, and simplify the management of mixed order with recurring services and physical products.  

With the industry’s broadest, deepest and fastest growing suite of applications, which includes the world’s #1 ERP cloud platform and a complete suite of customer experience applications, Oracle is uniquely positioned to help organizations embrace subscription business models by supporting end-to-end business processes from order to cash.

Oracle Helps Brands Eliminate Customer Blind Spots

Oracle Press Releases - Mon, 2018-10-22 11:01
Press Release
Oracle Helps Brands Eliminate Customer Blind Spots Oracle CX Unity provides comprehensive view into customer interactions across channels and applications

Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, Calif.—Oct 22, 2018

Oracle delivers true customer understanding.

Oracle today announced Oracle CX Unity, a unique approach to managing customer data that enables organizations to deliver an experience that is timely, relevant, and consistent across known and unknown interactions. Existing approaches are built around the idea of a linear “customer journey” and simply focus on integrating sales, marketing, and customer service applications. Oracle CX Unity provides brands with powerful and actionable insights in context, in motion and in real time across the entire customer experience.

“For too long the technology industry has focused on the idea of a static and predictable customer journey. That has to change if we are going to truly understand the customer experience,” said Rob Tarkoff, EVP and GM, Oracle CX Cloud. “That change starts with recognizing that customer interactions are unpredictable and that there is no such thing as a fixed, 360-degree view of the customer. Today’s consumers are fickle and nomadic, and as a result, data and insights are constantly in motion. That’s why we are taking a unique, data-first approach that can help brands eliminate their blind spots and make every customer interaction matter.”

Today, choice and immediacy are requirements for every business, whether B2C or B2B. Consumers expect things to happen seamlessly on their own terms, whenever and however they want. And expectations are not only increasing, but are also in constant flux—what is expected varies from person to person and from moment to moment. To help brands understand these expectations and deliver the flexibility, choice, and immediacy that are now table stakes for both business and consumer buyers, Oracle CX Unity connects all customer data together in context, in motion, and in real time to help ensure that each and every customer interaction is data driven.

“The fact that so many organizations understand the importance of CX to the brand, but are unable to deliver outcomes that meet or exceed customer expectations is indicative of the growing need for fresh approaches to delivering more positive outcomes for customers,” Augie Ray, research director at Gartner.*

Oracle CX Unity brings together online, offline, and third-party customer data sources to create a single and dynamic view of the customer. This unique data fabric provides a fast and easy way to bring together customer data from across the entire organization and applies built-in machine learning to prescribe the optimal experience within existing business processes. By connecting data, intelligence, and experiences across known and unknown interactions, Oracle CX Unity helps organizations increase sales, improve customer satisfaction, and grow customer lifetime value.

Oracle CX Unity is pre-integrated with Oracle Customer Experience (CX) Cloud to enable intelligence to be applied across every customer touchpoint. Oracle CX Cloud is an integrated set of applications which empower organizations to take a smarter approach to customer experience management and business transformation initiatives. By providing a trusted business platform that connects data, experiences, and outcomes, Oracle CX Cloud helps customers reduce IT complexity, deliver innovative customer experiences, and achieve predictable and tangible business results.

Oracle Launches New Data Cloud Solution for B2B Marketers

Oracle Press Releases - Mon, 2018-10-22 11:00
Press Release
Oracle Launches New Data Cloud Solution for B2B Marketers New service enables 1.5M small and mid-size businesses to tailor B2B marketing across 48 industry and sub-industry segments

Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, Calif.—Oct 22, 2018

Oracle Data Cloud today launched a new SMB data solution that helps B2B marketers reach over 115 million IDs at more than 1.5 million small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) with effective digital campaigns. The new solution enables account-based marketing (ABM) for sales outreach to contacts at small and mid-size businesses across 48 industry and sub-industry segments, offering similar outreach tools to those used by larger organizations.

“Most data and tools for digital B2B marketing have focused on large companies while ignoring the millions of smaller companies who make up the vast majority of US businesses,” said Niraj Deo, vice president, product & data Strategy, Oracle Data Cloud. “This SMB data solution levels the playing field for B2B marketers so they can identify, reach, and manage their sales and marketing programs for both large organizations and the smaller businesses who can drive their growth. By combining their own CRM data with Oracle’s syndicated and custom segments, B2B marketers can use advanced account-based marketing capabilities for this massive, but underserved, universe of SMBs.”

Using Oracle Data Cloud’s (ODC) SMB solution, B2B marketers can build digital audiences to match their marketing goals and business needs, based on criteria ranging from number of employees to financial risk profiles, growth patterns, accepted payments, ecommerce capabilities, and past purchases.

“Cisco has a strong focus on enabling SMBs in their digital transformation initiatives; this is a key pillar of our marketing and sales programs,” said Alex Montuschi, global audience manager of Cisco Corporation. “As we innovate and create offerings meant for SMBs, we see increasing need to reach SMBs already in our CRM systems, and such capabilities will help us increase our reach across small as well as large accounts.”

The SMB data solution launched today by Oracle Data Cloud includes:

  • Self-Service Syndicated SMB Audiences: Marketers of all sizes can use Oracle Data Cloud’s data marketplace to build their ideal SMB audiences at scale, then activate those audiences across every major platform and the open web.
  • Custom SMB Audience Capabilities: Enterprise B2B marketers can build custom SMB audiences by onboarding their own first-party data or CRM files, then use Oracle data to find other relevant contacts at the same companies. By integrating this data into their digital marketing efforts, B2B marketers can use the same powerful ABM tools for outreach to both large companies and smaller businesses.
  • SMB Digital Channel Marketing: Marketers can maximize their returns on partner market development funds that are spent on joint SMB marketing campaigns by utilizing Oracle’s Data Management Platform (DMP), digital channel marketing capabilities and custom SMB audiences.

“We are excited to partner with ODC on its new SMB solution. ODC has enabled unique use cases based on our commercial data capabilities, which in turn, will help marketers launch successful SMB programs,” said Krista Panoff, vice president, digital partnerships & business development, Transunion.

Oracle’s SMB solution is designed to meet the needs of B2B marketers in major industries, including retail, automotive, consumer packaged goods, financial services, technology, telecommunications, and manufacturing. The foundation for Oracle Data Cloud’s new SMB solution is its existing B2B audience marketplace, the industry’s largest source of B2B data. Also it uses the Oracle ID Graph, a unified identify platform, to help make programmatic and data-driven B2B marketing easier.

“Our research shows that B2B buyers, including those in SMB segments, leverage digital interactions throughout the buying decision process,” said Christina McKeon of leading industry analyst firm SiriusDecisions. “SMBs typically look for offerings that are easy to buy and maintain. To align to these requirements, it's critical that B2B marketers identify the right organizations to market in order to grow their existing SMB customer base, as well as prospect to new customers. Additionally, over 60 percent of B2B organizations report that 11 to 30 percent of their overall marketing budget is dedicated to channel marketing. We often see B2B organizations leverage their channel partners to target specific markets, such as SMB, to support scale and/or take advantage of a partner’s expertise in a specific market.”

More information on Oracle Data Cloud’s SMB data solution is available by contacting The Data Hotline.

Press Release
Oracle Recognized as a Leader in Independent Analyst Report on Marketing Automation Platforms Oracle Eloqua, part of Oracle Marketing Cloud, is top-ranked in current offering and strategy categories, and received among the highest scores in the market presence category

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Oct 22, 2018

Oracle Marketing Cloud has been named a leader in business to business (B2B) marketing automation platforms by Forrester Research. The Forrester Wave™: B2B Marketing Automation Platforms, Q4 2018 recognizes Oracle Eloqua as having the highest score in the current offering and strategy categories and among the highest scores in the market presence category. The report also cites Oracle’s substantial investment in “data as a differentiator,” noting that “Oracle aims to help its customers create consistent, compelling and connected experiences for customers and believes a data-first approach is the best way to deliver on that vision.”

“Marketing automation is growing at unprecedented rates as CMOs are asked to drive sales and strengthen brand and customer loyalty,” said Shashi Seth, SVP, Oracle Marketing Cloud. “To help our customers take advantage of one of the world’s best marketing orchestration engines to meet increasing demands and maximize the return on marketing spend, we will continue to put Eloqua at the center of all marketing activities. We believe that being named a leader by Forrester validates our unique data-driven approach to marketing and our focus on delivering the strategy, intelligence and execution engine that marketers require to provide irresistible, consistent and connected experiences to customers.”

According to Forrester, with many features and much functionality now commoditized, vendors that “provide analytics and AI-powered capabilities to optimize engagement—from attraction to advocacy—with both leads and accounts position themselves to successfully deliver solutions that support modern B2B marketing.”

For the report, six vendors were evaluated across 36 criteria, which were grouped into three categories: current offering, strategy and market presence. Oracle received the highest score of any vendor in the current offering category, and received the highest score possible in the strategy and market presence categories. Oracle also received the highest possible score for twenty-seven of the criteria, including data management, planning and program management, segmentation and list building, outbound campaigns, channel optimization, lead nurturing, vision, go-to-market, product road map, innovation agenda, support for global deployments and market impact.

Oracle Eloqua equips marketers with best-in-class lead and campaign management tools that help marketers engage the right audience at the right time in the buyer’s journey, while providing real-time reporting and insights.

Steal Percentage on the Virtual Machine

Senthil Rajendran - Mon, 2018-10-22 04:26
Recently have been working with a customer who was running high workload on virtual machine. After a complete review , DBAs have identified the database is running non optimized codes/sql/programs. During high peak load we observed very high Steal %

Image result for Steal Percentage Top

In a virtual environment, CPU cycles are shared across virtual machines on the server. If your virtual machine displays a high %st in top (steal time), this means CPU cycles are being taken away from your virtual machine to serve other purposes. You may be using more than your share of CPU resources or the physical server may be over-sold. Move the virtual machine to another physical server. If steal time remains high, try giving the virtual machine more CPU resources.

In this case this database was not having any noisy neighbor and it was the same machine fighting against itself. The reason was over-provisioning. The underlying hardware had 48 CPU but virtual machine was over provisioned for 64 CPU.

To resolve the issue , virtual machine was migrated from 48 CPU bare metal to 82 CPU bare metal.

The Steal is gone.

it is highly recommended to have a metric collection on the monitoring tool to have Steal monitored on high workload virtual machines. This will help take action and move environment to have better performance.

Finally we took the ferry to reach North Beach and bringing back our bikes.  It was the opportunity to have a wonderful view on Alcatraz Island, San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge.

Alcatraz and San Francisco

Because a blog speaking about a bike trip starting on the Golden Gate, without even a Golden Gate picture is not imaginable I made a small detour before giving back my bike to catch a picture…

Golden Gate

On the way back to the hotel we caught our Oracle Pass at Moscone Center in order to attend to the sessions tomorrow.

The Oracle Pass

So tomorrow no sightseeing and no bike trip on the programm but I very do hope lot of interesting technical sessions and fun. For sure I will attend to the Larry Ellison Keynote “Cloud Generation 2″ and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to heard about autonomous tasks, AI, security and cloud ;-).

Greetings from San Francisco

Revision Control Basics

Anthony Shorten - Sun, 2018-10-21 17:53

One of the features of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework is Revision Control. This is an optional facility where you can version manage your ConfigTools objects natively within the browser. Revision Control supports the following capabilities:

  • Adding an object for the first time.  The new object is automatically checked out by the system on behalf of the current user.  The revision is finalized when the user checks in the object or reverts all changes.  The latter causes the object to be restored to the version at check-out time.
  • Updating an object requires the object to be checked out prior to making any change.  A user can either manually check out an object or the first save confirms an automatic check out with the user.  The revision is finalized when the user checks in the object or reverts all changes.  
  • Deletion is captured. Deleting an object results in a new revision record capturing the object at deletion time. This does not remove the object from Object Revision. It also allows for restores in the future if necessary.
  • Restoring generated a new revision. Restoring an object also results in a new revision capturing the object after being restored to an older version.
  • State is important. An object is considered checked out if it has a revision in a non-final state.
  • Algorithms control the revision. A Revision Control Maintenance Object plug-in spot is introduced to enforce revision rules such as preventing from a user to work on an object checked out by another user.  Revision control is an optional feature that can be turned on for each eligible maintenance object.  To turn the feature on for a Maintenance Object, a revision control algorithm has to be plugged in to it.  
  • Automatic revision dashboard zones. A new Revision Control context sensitive dashboard zone is provided to manage the above revision events, except the restore, for the current object being maintained.  The zone is visible only if the Maintenance Object has this feature turned on.  A hyperlink from this zone navigates to a new Revision History portal listing the history of revision events for the current object.      
  • Tracking objects. A dashboard zone is provided that shows all the objects currently being checked out by the user.  
  • Search revision history. In addition, a Revision History Search portal is provided to search and see information about a user's historical work and the historical revisions to an object.

Revision Control supports the ability to check in, check out and revert versions of objects you develop in ConfigTools from within the browser interface. Additionally the Revision Control supports team based development with supervisor functions to force state of versions allocated to individuals. The diagram below summarizes the facilities:

Note: By default Revision Control is disabled by default and the F1-REVCTL algorithm must be added as a Revision Control algorithm on the ConfigTools Maintenance Objects it applies to. For example:

Once enabled whenever the configured object is edited a Revision Control dashboard zone will be displayed depending on the state of the object within the Revision Control system.

The state of a revision can be queried using the Revision Control Search. For example:

This is has just been a summary of some of the features of Revision Control. Refer to the online documentation for additional advice and a full description of the features.

Oracle Cloud Gives Easy Access to Partner Solutions

Oracle Press Releases - Sun, 2018-10-21 16:00
Press Release
Oracle Cloud Gives Easy Access to Partner Solutions Partners and customers can now publish, find and launch business applications from Oracle Cloud console

Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, Calif.—Oct 21, 2018

Oracle Cloud gives easy access to partner solutions.

To help customers take advantage of its growing ecosystem of partner applications and solutions, Oracle today announced the inclusion of the Oracle Cloud Marketplace within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console. The Oracle Cloud Marketplace is an online store for thousands of Oracle and partner-built business applications and services, including FireEye, HighJump, and ICS Financial Systems.

As part of this announcement, Oracle is delivering new ‘click to launch’ functionality directly within Oracle Cloud Marketplace allowing customers to quickly deploy turn-key applications and images via a Partner Image Catalog. With this addition, partners can easily get their technical and business solutions, including Fortinet Fortigate, Jenkins by Bitnami, and Check Point CloudGuard, into the hands of customers for development, test, pilot, and production deployments. End-users benefit from the simplicity and can easily find, learn about, and deploy applications directly from the console and launch pre-installed servers to their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure environment in just a few clicks. What once took days and possibly weeks to do, can now be done in a matter of minutes.

“At Oracle, we continuously strive to make it easier for customers to explore, demo and launch applications in Oracle Cloud, whether they be innovative business applications from our growing ecosystem of partners or existing Oracle Applications”, said Kash Iftikhar, vice president of product and strategy, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “The integration between Oracle Cloud Marketplace and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, leveraging our new Partner Image Catalog capabilities, further validates our commitment to both customers and partners, helping them easily deliver the best possible business solutions.”

To further promote discovery and learning, Oracle is enhancing the Oracle Cloud Jump Start program with the announcement of Jump Start Learning which offers anyone with a web browser, from beginner to advanced, instant access to self-paced, hands-on training modules for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. These offerings enable customers and partners to quickly and easily learn how to use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Partners can also use Jump Start Learning to create their own training modules for their solutions running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. 

Customers continue to be pleased with the ability to demo partner and Oracle solutions via the Oracle Cloud Jump Start Demo Labs. Oracle partners are rapidly adding new Jump Start Demo labs providing customers the ability to get hands-on experience with Oracle partner-built solutions running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. 

    • "We are delighted to support Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Fortinet products,” said John Maddison - SVP products and solutions at Fortinet. “Customers now have instant access to launch Fortinet solutions like our Fortigate next-generation firewall within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console. In just a few clicks customers can launch and use our award-winning firewall product in minutes."

    • “We’re excited to team up with Oracle to allow customers to easily launch solutions such as Jenkins and Redmine directly into their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure,” said Pete Catalanello, vice president of business development at Bitnami. “Oracle is also showing a strong commitment to the partner ecosystem by providing an easy way for end-users to learn about our solutions through Jump Start Learning.”

    • “Jump Start Learning labs are a great way to gain actual hands on experience on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform,” said Tom Morgan, Oracle Apps DBA manager at Darling Ingredients. “The labs are easy to use and a great learning tool. Having these labs available for our team will help in closing the skill gap and drive adoption. We expect to see a significant impact on our business as our teams are ramping up working on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and preparing for the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Architect Associate certification.”

Oracle Open World 2018 J-1

Yann Neuhaus - Sun, 2018-10-21 01:10

I woke up this morning (20.10.2018) knowing that this day will be a very long day. Indeed today my Colleague Mouhamadou and me traveled to San Francisco in order to attend to the Oracle Open World (OOW). I travelled from Delémont to Zurich, meaning about 1h30 and then I caught my flight from Zurich at 13:10 (GMT+2) to land in San Francisco about 12 hours laters at 16h10 (GMT-7).

Of course when you arrive on American soil and you are not U.S. citizen, you have to face the queue before the customs… about 1h45 of queue in my case. Then we caught the shuttle for the Handlery Union Square Hotel and finally arrive at 18h30 (GMT-7).

Queue before the customs

After dropping our bags in the hotel, we decided to go for a lunch on Mikkeller Bar on 34 Mason St. where many Oracle people and consultants where seating for a beer.

Mikkeller Bar

During the next 4 days, Mouhamadou and me will share information regarding our Oracle Open World experience, product keynotes, sessions, aso , so do not hesitate to follow us either on twitter or on dbi services blog platform ! You can also find some San Francisco pictures on my Instagram account.

For me now it’s time to sleep… see you tomorrow for a ride tour with Bryn Llewellyn, Mouhamadou Diaw, Franck Pachot and many others on the Golden Gate before the Oracle Open World registration.

Good night !
