Slamdunk Reporting In Oracle Standard Edition

I was at my daughter’s basketball game this past Saturday. 11-12 year old basketball games are the height of entertainment. As is typical at these type of events, you often meet other parents. The usual questions are asked, ‘Which kid is yours?’, ‘Where do you live?’, ‘Any other kids?’, and the bombshell ‘What do you […]

Beatles, Beer and British Conferences – UKOUG TECH14 Wrap Up

In December I was excited to attend UKOUG in the UK. This was my first UKOUG and I didn’t really know what to expect. I landed in London at Heathrow of course and then took the train up to Liverpool. I had the option to fly into Manchester but I love train rides. Coming from the US […]

The Great New Zealand Roadtrip

  As Thursday and Friday were holidays in the US, I decided to make the most of the time and take a little tour of part of the North Island. Many of my coworkers from Dbvisit have been asking me how my trip went so I figured I might post this as a blog… I […]

Driving Down Cost Means Big Changes in the UK Healthcare Software Market

  The UK National Health Service (NHS) is undergoing change yet again, from an initial move to centralized solutions, now back to a more decentralized approach. This means allowing more freedom and autonomy to the Trusts to decide on their own solutions moving forward, which is a great thing as they address local needs. However […]

Cloudy with a chance of …AWS

Dbvisit got a great opportunity thanks to Amazon Web Services (AWS). As many people may know, Dbvisit are AWS Partners. We were fortunate enough to be invited to participate in their Test Drive booths this past week at Amazon’s signature event re:Invent in Las Vegas. Before I talk about the event I want to spend a minute talking about […]

Oracle Sequences and Replication

As I mentioned last week, Oracle sequences are often topics of conversation when discussing replication. Last week we covered the basics of sequences and I pointed out a few important facts; there may be ‘gaps’ in the sequence as Oracle does not guarantee that they will be in order, that there is an option to have […]

Introduction To Oracle Sequences

In the world of database replication, sequences seem to be a recurring theme.  In fact, I don’t think that a week goes by without a prospective customer asking a question or two about sequences and what happens in regards to replication.  To that end I thought it might be a good idea to talk to replication.  Before […]

OneTime ™ – Do It Once, Do It Right!

One of the great things about working at Dbvisit is that we get to work with high caliber people.  As a smaller company and being very geographically diverse, we do have a unique culture.  Indeed because my coworkers and I are flung across the planet there are certain things that we must do in order […]
