Collaborate 2015 Round Up

The last thing in the world I wanted to do on Sunday morning was wake up early and get on an airplane. I had just arrived back home on Friday night at about midnight. However, I remembered how great Collaborate 2014 was and that kept me smiling a bit. Just a bit, as I did […]

Report In The Cloud Part 2

In Part 1, we discussed a bit about the differences in AWS EC2 instances and AWS RDS instances; then it was right into the facts about how to set up replication from on premise to the cloud. In the Dbvisit Replicate release 2.7, the setup wizard was enhanced to have specific information for AWS RDS […]

JIRA DoubleDay

I have been reading a lot recently about what makes a successful team, and how to get teams that are physically separated around the globe to work better together. I have also been reading about ‘Hackathons’. Then I had a dangerous idea… I wonder if we could combine them and try something here at Dbvisit. […]

Culture, Coffee and Cricket – NZTE Networking in London

  I was pretty excited as the day started off. I made sure that I got up super early as I didn’t want to be late. I researched what Tube station to get off and headed over to the Pall Mall. American should know that it is not pronounced Pall Mall but more like ‘pal […]

Report In The Cloud

We have had a few different blogs recently regarding reporting. We talked about the need for different geographic databases and we have talked about the performance benefits of reporting databases. One thing we didn’t really talk about is how to set that database up. Of course setting up a reporting database is really just setting up […]

Dbvisit Standby Part 2 – Using Pre- and Post- Processing

In the second post of this two part blog series I will continue the discussion on two of the (lesser known and often forgotten about) features available in Dbvisit Standby Version 7. The first option discussed – here – outlined how you can recover a standby database to a specific SCN or timestamp, so that […]

How Is The View Part 3

First we talked about regular views and then materialized views, we can now discuss how materialized views can be useful in different ways that can be used with data integration. Of course I wanted to talk just about the pitfalls and things to look out for but you can see how the topic has expanded. Let’s suppose […]

Dbvisit Standby Part 1 – Recover to specific SCN or TIMESTAMP

While busy testing the latest Dbvisit Standby version 7.0.36 I realized again that apart from the core functions of the product, there are many additional features available which a lot of people are not aware off. The development team has done an amazing job at including these additional features into the product, and so in […]

How Is The View Part 2

In Part I of “How Is The View?” I wanted to talk about materialized views and replication and we started talking about regular views instead so let’s talk about materialized views this week. Materialized views, besides being a fantastic name, are physical manifestations of a view. What does that really mean? Well as you recall we […]

We need to talk about your TPS (or Oracle) reports

If you have seen the movie Office Space then you know all about the TPS reports. Aside from corporate bureaucracy rules, reporting has become a fact of life for many companies. These reports are either run ad-hoc (someone just happens to want a random report at this particular time), scheduled reports or reports that feed dashboards. There are also […]
