To our readers,
To try and consolidate and simplify life somewhat we have migrated over to a new blog site. The new site combines our IAM blog and corporate website. If you had subscribed to this site as a blog follower, we have already moved your subscription over to the new site and you should continue to get updates.
I hope that you have enjoyed these blog posts, as much as we have enjoyed sharing them, and will continue to follow and interact with us over on the new site.
People will commonly ask me this question, which has a very wide range as the answer. You can get an app build on oDesk for nearly free - i.e. $2000 or less. Will it provide the functionality you need? It might! Do you need a website that does the same thing? Do you need a database (i.e. something beyond the app) to store your data for your customers?
When I first heard about Amazon's offering called CloudFront I really didn't understand what it offered and who would want to use it. I don't think they initially called it a content delivery network (CDN), but I could be wrong about that. Maybe it was just something I didn't think I needed at that time.
Amazon states it well today (as you might expect). The offering "gives developers and businesses an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, and high data transfer speeds."
The Rittman Mead Global Services team have recently been involved in a number of security architecture implementations and produced a security model which meets a diverse set of requirements. Using our experience and standards we have been able to deliver a robust model that addresses the common questions we routinely receive around security, such as :
“Whats considerations do I need to make when exposing Oracle BI to the outside world?”
“How can I make a flexible security model which is robust enough to meet the demands of my organisation but easy to maintain?”
It's amazing how much work goes into a one page website these days! We've been working on our new version of our website (which is basically one page) for the last month or so. The content is "easy" part on one hand and the look and feel / experience is the time consuming part. To put it another way, it's all about the entire experience, not just the text/content.
Here is a quick note to help you correctly configure the Scripted SQL Connector when working with different schemas in an Oracle Database. By default the connector assumes that you are querying the default schema, which can be problematic if you happen to be using a different schema (user).
The default connector file will look something like this:
Throughout time, I have come up with a list of Essbase configuration file settings that I typically use in my implementations. As the versions come out, new settings are added and it appears in the 188.8.131.52.5X versions a bunch of new setting are there, or at least I now noticed them.
Some of the new settings I’ll be adding to my list are
DIMBUILDERRORLIMIT – signifies the number of error rows during a dimension build. This is similar to the DATALOADERRORLIMIT Both has a maximum of 65K rows
In Part 1, we looked at the initialization of libOVD at server startup. Now let’s examine what happens inside libOVD when you actually click on the login button in BPM Workspace. Again, we are looking at BPM 11g PS5 BP7 with Patch 17315336.
Most every startup that I've watched (and been part of) has grand plans of virality. Build it and they will not just come to you, but they will flock to you! There is a dream that what you have built is going to change the world and it's going to be so obvious to everyone that they will want to share the news with all of their friends. It's a good dream and there is a dose of reality that hits you dead in the face at some point.
