End-to-End ODI12c ETL on Oracle Big Data Appliance Pt.3 : Enhance with Oracle Reference Data via Sqoop, and CKMs

In the first two posts in this series, I used the software on the Oracle Big Data Appliance 3.0 to ingest web log data from the Rittman Mead blog server, parse and load that data into a Hive table, and then join that table to another to add details on post and author. Links to the post in this series are below, and I’ll complete them as the series is posted this week:

The BI Survey 14 – Have Your Voice Heard!

Long-term readers of this blog will know that we’ve supported for many years the BI Survey, an independent survey of BI tools customers and implementors. Rittman Mead have no (financial or other) interest in the BI Survey or its organisers, but we like the way it gathers in detailed data on which tools work best and when, and it’s been a useful set of data for companies such as Oracle when they prioritise their investment in tools such as OBIEE, Essbase and the BI Applications.

Here’s the invite text and link to the survey:

Rittman Mead Featured in Oracle In-Memory Option Launch

Today saw the official launch of the Oracle Database In-Memory Option, with Larry Ellison going through the product features and then reading out some quotes and testimonials from beta testers. Rittman Mead were part of the beta testing program, with several of our team testing out various scenarios where we ETL’d into it, used it with OBIEE and worked out what would be involved in “in-memory-enabling” some of our customer’s BI systems.

Environment Variable Tip when using OHS 12.1.2

Here's a silly little issue I hit this afternoon - mostly a case of "administrator error" but a time waster nevertheless.

End-to-End ODI12c ETL on Oracle Big Data Appliance Pt.2 : Hive Table Joins, Aggregation and Loading

In this series of posts, I’m going to be looking at an end-to-end ETL process on Oracle Big Data Appliance, using Hadoop technologies to do the data manipulation and Oracle Data Integrator 12c to orchestrate the process. Over the five posts, I’ll be landing web server log data on the Hadoop cluster using Flume, loading that data into a Hive table, transforming and enhancing the dataset, and then loading the final dataset into an Oracle database using one of the Oracle Big Data Connectors.

End-to-End ODI12c ETL on Oracle Big Data Appliance Pt.1 : Flume to Initial Hive Table

A few months ago I posted an article on the ODI12c examples in the new Oracle Big Data Appliance, and over the past few weeks I’ve been writing about the various components within the Cloudera CDH Hadoop stack, including Hive, Pig, Spark and Flume.

Goodbye to Stewart…

We’re sad to announce that Stewart Bryson’s last day with Rittman Mead was last Friday, and he’s moving-on now to a new challenge. Five years ago Stewart co-founded Rittman Mead America with us, and most recently he’s been our Chief Innovation Officer, handing over the day-to-day running of our US business to Charles Elliott, our US Practice Manager.

Telling Tales

After struggling to find time for many months, I finally was able to sit down and watch without interruption Benjamin Bagby's Beowulf performance - an adaptation that relies on Bagby's voice and a reconstruction of a 6th century 6 tone Anglo-Saxon harp. The performance is engrossing and provokes a strong imaginative response, one that would have been communally experienced.

Data Integration Tips: GoldenGate on RAC – Action Script for Windows

I want to briefly interrupt my blog series on GoldenGate and ODI – A Perfect Match in 12c… to provide another Data Integration Tip that was found during a recent client engagement.
