Rocky Mountain High

As I headed to Denver to attend the Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group’s (RMOUG) training days, I was pretty excited to get to warmer weather. Typically people don’t say that they are going to Denver to warm up but as I entered my car in the morning it was -22 C. This would be my first visit to RMOUG […]

How Is The View?

As mentioned in the recent ITL blog sometimes issues come in ‘waves’. Meaning that prospective customers or current customers seem to ask similar questions around the same time.   Another issue that recently came up a few times was materialized views. Before we dig into how materialized views fit in with replication, let’s talk about regular views […]

Waiting is not what you want… avoid the ITLs

Recently I can across an interesting error here at Dbvisit: 2015/01/01 11:10:30 ERROR> ERR-3112: Apply waiting on lock on DBVREP user. This is either an internal deadlock, multiple running appliers using the same data, or someone manually changing data using this account.

Be Prepared For The Storm

This past week a large winter storm hit the Northeast of the United States. Prior to the storm the weathermen (I am hesitant to call them all meteorologists) were hyping the storm as a ‘Storm of the Century’. And it seems that now in the US snow storms are named. They have been naming hurricanes […]

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 […]

Kiwi as…

I have been in New Zealand for two and a half weeks now.  It seems like I have been here a long time and then again it seems like the time has flown by.  I am sure that all of my Kiwi coworkers are dying to know what I thought of my time here.  So […]

How Oracle Database Replication Looks Down Under

The long awaited date had finally arrived, New Zealand Oracle Users Group’s event NZOUG14.  I was told about this event by my colleagues.  Dbvisit employees often speak around the world at different Oracle conferences.  But NZOUG14 is a bit special, as Dbvisit is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, the City of Sails.  I was excited to […]
