ODTUG Webinar: Incredible ODI Tips to Work with Hyperion Tools

Posted in ACE, ODI, ODTUG, Webinar on October 14, 2016 by radk00

Hi all! Today is a quick post to call you all for our ODTUG webinar that will be presented on Thursday, December 15, 2016 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST:

ODI is an incredible and flexible development tool that goes beyond simple data integration, but most of its development power comes from outside-the-box ideas.

  • Did you ever want to have only one interface and loop any number of ODI objects with a lot of control?
  • Did you ever need to have a “third command tab” in your procedures or KMs to improve ODI powers?
  • Did you ever want to have only one data store and loop different sources without the need for different ODI contexts?
  • Do you use “dynamic variables” and know how powerful they can be?

 If you want to know the answer to all these questions, please join us in this webinar to learn the special secrets of ODI that will take your development skills to the next level.

This is a remodeled version of our Kscope16 session, where we combined some of the topics and also added some live demo for easier understanding. If you got interested, register now here.

Thanks! Hope to see you all there!

KScope 17 Abstract submission deadline is approaching fast!!!!

Posted in ACE, Kscope, Kscope 17 with tags , on October 3, 2016 by RZGiampaoli

Hello guys how are you doing?

This will be a quick post, in fact it’ll be a question and a reminder. Let’s start with the question:

What do you guys think about adding a little bit of excitement in your lives and a lot of knowledge and friendship as a side effect? How? This will be your life if you decide to share a little bit of your knowledge with your fellow developers at KScope 17.

Looks scary but it isn’t at all (at least after the first time 🙂 or second… heheh). Everybody in KScope is so receptive and friendly, basically everybody is having a great time and learning a lot doing so.

And don’t even think something like “ahhh but everybody there are ACEs… and knows a lot” or “I need to be well-known so my abstract pass the cut” or even “I’m not good enough” and other things like this because we are the proof that anybody can make it.

Think about it…. 2 guys from Brazil (that means, English is an issue 🙂 and we know that), nobody never ever know even that we were alive, we had, at that time, just created our blog and we never went to any international conference before (than we didn’t know what expect)….

If this is not scary I don’t know what it is….

But even so we submit an abstract (and reading it today I can’t realize how Cameron figured out what in hell we were talking about there…..) but the important thing is that they give us a chance and since then, we are presenting at KScope, learning how to and trying to improve every time.

Ok but you can think “What I’ll gain with that! It’s a lot of work!!!”

Well, it’s a lot of work, but, and this is true for a blog too, after you start to share your knowledge you start to think way ahead you normally do, mainly because you cannot think in a local solution anymore, you need to think in how to make it useful for everybody. And this improves a lot your horizons and the capability to design and create solutions.

Also, you’ll be always trying to do something new because you need material for the next year 🙂 and the next year arrives very fast 🙂 it’s almost a nonstop process. You submit your abstract, wait for the results, prepare your material, get ready to present, go to KScope and present you session, fly back and start to think about what you’ll present next year, prepare the new abstract and so on…

And if you are a manager and is thinking how to improve your team performance….. motivate them to submit sessions to KScope or write a blog. I can guarantee the results for both, the team and the career development.

Now for the reminder 🙂 deadline for submit abstracts to KScope is getting near. You have until Oct-14 to submit your summary and abstract. Don’t need to be huge or anything like this. It just needs to be interesting and I’m sure you’ll change your life :).

Thanks guys and see you at KScope 17, the lair of knowledge and fellowship 🙂
