Just installed IntelliJ IDEA version 13 and found that it now includes a CloudFoundry connection type. You define it under IDE settings as shown below.

Thoughts on Using Amazon Redshift as a Replacement for an Oracle Data Warehouse

Recently, my colleague, Pete Carpenter, described a proof of concept we carried out using Amazon Redshift as the data warehouse storage layer in a system capturing data from Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) using Attunity CloudBeam in conjunction with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) for specialised ETL processing and Oracle Business Intellig

Building an Amazon Redshift Data Warehouse using ODI and Attunity Part 2 : Using ODI and OBIEE with Redshift as a Target/Source

In my post yesterday we stepped through the initial set up and staging load for a data warehouse using Amazon Redshift and Attunity, for eventual use with OBIEE and ODI. Now that we have our source data in Redshift, let’s look at transforming it into a star schema using ODI, by initially looking how we set up the connection to Redshift in ODI’s Topology Navigator.

Bye Bye FB

Looks like I cannot go without a G+ profile if I want to continue to use my blogger account ...

As I cannot go on Fesse Book to notify my friends I am no longer there, I have to use alternate routes ;-)
Most likely, I am going to create a Marketing Account on MailChimp for 'Les Amis d'Eric' so that I can continue to push update about my remodeling project and my new diets.
This is still work in progress, so stay tuned.

Building an Amazon Redshift Data Warehouse using ODI and Attunity Part 1 : Configuring Redshift, and CDC Using Attunity

One of our longstanding Oracle customers recently asked us to put together a proof-of-concept DW system using Amazon Redshift as the data warehouse database, rather than Oracle Database. The main driver for this was the economics of running Redshift in the cloud vs. Oracle on-premise, or using Amazon RDS, and they were also interested in the potential performance benefits of running their data warehouse on a column-store database.

Using Groovy instead of WLST for OBIEE Systems Management

I remember some years back when Rittman Mead first received the OBIEE 11g beta and I tried installing it for the first time. It was a nightmare. If you think the 11.1.1.3 release was challenging, you should have tried working with any one of the betas. It was with these first few releases that Weblogic was injected into my world.

PCF (Pivotal Cloud Foundry) new command line client

I decided to install the new CF v6 CLI for PCF (Pivotal Cloud Foundry). Given this will be the new CLI for PCF here is how it differs to the old Ruby CLI. In this example I deploy / push a spring based application and bind it to existing services.

To download and install the new CLI v6 use the link below.

OBIEE 11g Presentation Server Catalog Replication Across Redundant Servers

The thing about OBIEE 11g, is that there is no single way to get things “up and running”. Over the past year I have performed countless OBIEE installs and almost every one has been different to the last, due to infrastructure challenges, scale requirements or requirements for high-availability and server redundancy.
