Migrating Oracle R12 Application Setup Objects with Extended Object Support 
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT
 
Because changes to the Oracle E-Business Suite affect the entire organization, it is vital to employ an effective change management and version control solution based on proven principles. Today, most companies rely on manual processes to migrate objects across test and production environments, resulting in longer implementation times and more mistakes. Automatically migrating setup objects can be achieved more easily than ever before and can make life better for everyone involved: Oracle Application Managers, Business Analysts, System Admins, and DBAs.   
 
Dell Stat for Oracle E-Business Suite can save you 75% or more on your migration time. Please join us to see how you can:
* Migrate application setup objects between multiple instances and across multiple environments
* Enable one-to-one migrations of multiple framework setups
* Automate the creation of a detailed and comprehensive audit trail
* Browse libraries of your most commonly used and customized setup objects
In this upcoming webcast, you’ll get an overview of all that Extended Object Support offers, as well as a short demo of Dell Stat to see how it really works!   Please join us to learn more about how this solution can save you valuable time and money.

In Search of Plan Stability (Part 1
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT
 
One of the most frustrating challenges many of us regularly deal with is SQL performance regressions caused by execution plan changes. Performance seems to take a nose-dive for no apparent reason and everyone scrambles to figure out what happened. Perhaps statistics changed, perhaps an instance parameter changed, perhaps indexes were added or dropped, or perhaps nothing identifiable has changed at all. Regardless of why it happens, the regression needs to be found and corrected quickly.
 
In this webinar, attendees will learn:
* How to define and identify plan stability/instability issues
* How SQL profiles and SQL patches can be used to stabilize regressed plans
* Limitations of SQL profiles and SQL patches
* How Oracle's SQL Plan Management features provide a broad solution for plan stability

An Inside Look at Oracle ZFS Storage VMware Integration
Tuesday, September 2, 2014 
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT
 
Oracle ZFS Storage has an ideal architecture for consolidating virtual server environments.  To take better advantage of this, we have just released a set of VMware Storage API integrations (SRA, vSphere client, VAAI NAS primitives).  Join us to get a look at what we've done so far, and to be part of a conversation about what we are doing next. In this session, attendees will be able to download BI Validator, install, create and execute test plans in minutes.

Delivering Great OBI by Testing Smarter, Not Harder 
Thursday, September 4, 2014 
 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT
 
Changes to Oracle Business Intelligence are inevitable. The problem is that even minor changes can result in unexpected results such as broken dashboards or reports, performance degradation or other similar outcomes that ultimately have a negative impact on user adoption. By leveraging BI Validator's automation capabilities, engineers, business analysts and testing teams can increase test coverage, achieve repeatability and deliver high quality dashboards and reports. 
 
 In this seminar, we will discuss:
* Common OBI testing challenges
* Overview of BI Validator
* Regression testing of dashboards with BI Validator
* Stress testing of dashboards with BI Validator
* Overview of other available test plans within the platform
At the end of the session, attendees will be able to download BI Validator and install, create and execute test plans in minutes.

Server-Side Flash Storage for Oracle RAC 
Thursday, September 11, 2014 
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT
 
Utilizing Server-Side PCIe flash storage offers a high-performance and cost efficient alternative to a traditional SAN architecture. However, Oracle requires shared access to all primary storage that is to be utilized for Oracle RAC. In this webinar, you will learn how to leverage Oracle’s own Automatic Storage Management capabilities to build a highly-available primary storage platform using PCIe flash cards inside the database servers themselves and avoid the costs and performance bottlenecks of external storage.

In Search of Plan Stability (Part 2) 
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 
 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT
 
Part 1 of this webinar set discussed the performance challenges caused by plan instability. Using SQL profiles and SQL patches are mechanisms that can provide targeted relief to individual SQL statements that have plan regressions. However, Oracle provides SQL Plan Management features that are intended to prevent plan regressions from creating challenges in the first place. 
 
 In this webinar, attendees will learn:
* How SQL Plan Management (SPM) works
* How SQL Plan Baselines are created
* How SQL Plan Baselines are evolved/enabled for use
* Limitations of SPM
