Oracle Database Developers: The Most Important Programmers on Earth

Almost all eyes are focused on UI development these days, leveraging JavaScript to build intuitive apps and more. Yet underneath it all, we will rely heavily on databases generally and Oracle Database in particular.

Join us for the launch of a 12-month series of discussions with experts such as Steven Feuerstein and Connor McDonald as we explore how to fully leverage all the application development features in Oracle Database.

In this first webcast, hosted by IOUG, a community expert will interview Steven Feuerstein about the importance of SQL and PL/SQL when building secure, high-performance, and maintainable applications on Oracle Database.

Putting New Essbase Calc Features to Work
Ron Moore, TopDown Consulting

Essbase’s calculation engine has always been its most powerful feature, and the past few releases have included an explosion of new calculation features. These new features not only improve performance, but they also make high-value business requirements much easier to implement and use. New features include Hybrid calculation mode, time series calculation improvements, runtime substitution variables, block creation improvements, new diagnostics, and more.

This webcast has two objectives. First, we will give you an overview of new calc features in the most recent new releases. Then, we will provide examples of how to put a few of the more useful features to work in your applications.

Examples and code samples will explore how to:

  • Simplify forecasting and planning with new time series calculation features
  • Use runtime substitution variables
  • Improve performance with new optimization features
