Unplug and enjoy the benefits of a rested mind…

In a world where mobile devices are part of daily living, where we search out mobile wifi hot spots in our regular movements and as a society we are ‘always’ available it can be extremely refreshing to ‘unplug’. I just got back from a 7 day trip where I had no access to email or […]

Getting Creative With Dbvisit Replicate Scripts

A few customers have asked me about scripting and other ways of interacting with Dbvisit Replicate.  Here are two of my favorite ways. In prior versions of Dbvisit Replicate you would have had to list out all the tables that you wanted.  This could become cumbersome if you had a schema with 1000 tables and […]

Now Here Comes Oracle

Set in the beautiful, temperate city of Seattle, #KSCOPE14 (June 22-26) promised and delivered: we enjoyed a rich feast of technical sessions for the manager and the hands’ on crowd, had our heads turned with a thought-provoking keynote speech, and, no joke, scarfed down some of the best conference food I’ve ever had. And, as […]

Discussing “right -sizing” at AUFO

In March the annual AUFO event took place in PARIS and it was a very interesting day for us. With an attendance of over 350 participants, this day event in the heart of Paris is a yearly rendez-vous for French speaking Oracle users as well as People Soft and JD Edwards. I was fortunate to […]

A lesson in planning for the unexpected on a grand scale!

So imagine how challenging it would be if your business provided essential food and water to the population of over (a staggering) 99 million and those people relied on your business to be available during […]
