New ODTUG Career Track Community + Kscope New Oracle Professional Tracks and Scholarship

Posted in Career, Kscope 16, ODTUG, Oracle with tags , , on April 25, 2016 by radk00

Hi all!

Last week I presented the first of a series of webinars that ODTUG will release talking about Oracle careers (if you want to check out the slides about ETL Developer Career webinar, click here). As I mentioned in the previous post, this webinar was part of a new ODTUG Career Track Community and back then I was not able to give you more info because the community was not released yet. But last week, the new community went live and with two more exciting news for young professionals that wants to speed up their Oracle careers. So let’s see what is this all about:

ODTUG Career Track Community

The Career Track is one of many communities that an ODTUG member can follow. It contains information, resources, and presentations specifically geared toward people just starting their careers. In addition to the materials and access that will make you successful, the Career Track Community will have exclusive networking events with current (and future) leaders within the Oracle Communities.

Click here to go to the Community site and don’t forget to follow the #orclcareer hashtag on Twitter for the latest and greatest information and discussions.

ODTUG’s Kscope16 New Oracle Professional Scholarship

ODTUG will give businesses and individuals the opportunity to send new professionals to Kscope16 by absorbing half the cost of a full-price Kscope16 registration. The scholarship is set at a maximum of 50 recipients. To be considered, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Currently work for a company that uses Oracle products in the following ODTUG Communities: ADF, Application Express, Business Intelligence, Database, and/or EPM.
  • Be a graduate of a college or university in 2013 or later.

Kscope16 New Oracle Professional Tracks

Kscope16 will contain sessions aimed for the new Oracle Professionals where people with basic or no knowledge about the tools will be able enjoy the presentations and leave with a very good amount of knowledge about them. For the complete list of the sessions tagged as “New Oracle Professional Tracks”, click here. DEVEPM is going to present one of them (Take a Peek at Dell’s Smart EPM Global Environment) so be sure to be there, it will be a great presentation!

As we can see, ODTUG is really committed to give opportunities to everyone, from the new Oracle professionals that just graduated from college, to the senior folks that lives and breathes Oracle technology every day in their jobs. The senior people already knows how beneficial this kind of conferences are for their career, but if the young ones are still not sure if it is worth the investment or not, please read what Sarah posted about this unique opportunity and how this kind of conference changed DEVEPM lives in a way that we never imagined.

Thanks all, I hope to see you all at Kscope16!!!

Hi Guys how are you?

Just a quickly post about this year KSCOPE. This year we’ll have 2 excellent sessions:

Take a Peek at Dell’s Smart EPM Global Environment:

Ricardo Giampaoli , TeraCorp

Co-presenter(s): Rodrigo Radtke de Souza, Dell

When: Jun 27, 2016, Session 2, 10:15 am – 11:15 am

Topic: EPM Applications – Subtopic: Planning

In a fast-moving business environment, finance leaders are successfully leveraging technology advancements to transform their finance organizations and generate value for the business.
Oracle’s Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) applications are an integrated, modular suite that supports a broad range of strategic and financial performance management tools that help business to unlock their potential.

Dell’s global financial environment contains over 10,000 users around the world and relies on a range of EPM tools such as Hyperion Planning, Essbase, Smart View, DRM, and ODI to meet its needs.

This session shows the complexity of this environment, describing all relationships between those tools, the techniques used to maintain such a large environment in sync, and meeting the most varied needs from the different business and laws around the world to create a complete and powerful business decision engine that takes Dell to the next level. 

Incredible ODI Tips to Work with Hyperion Tools

Ricardo Giampaoli , TeraCorp

Co-presenter(s): Rodrigo Radtke de Souza, Dell

When: Jun 27, 2016, Session 6, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Topic: EPM Platform – Subtopic: EPM Data Integration

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 dynamically run any number of “OS” commands using a single ODI component?
  • Did you ever want to have only one data store and loop different sources without the need of different ODI contexts?
  • 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?
  • Do you still use an old version of ODI and miss a way to know the values of the variables in a scenario execution?
  • Did you know ODI has four “substitution tags”? And do you know how useful they are?
  • Do you use “dynamic variables” and know how powerful they can be?
  • Do you know how to have control over you ODI priority jobs automatically (stop, start, and restart scenarios)?

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

Join us in KSCOPE 16 and book our 2 sessions in schedule. They will be very good sessions and I’m sure that you’ll learn some new stuff that will help you in your EPM Environment!

“Where to Start? ETL Developer Career” ODTUG Webinar

Posted in Career, ETL, ODI, ODTUG, Oracle, Webinar with tags , , , , , on March 30, 2016 by radk00

Hi everyone!

Today’s post is an invitation for the ODUTG Webinar “Where to start? ETL Developer Career” that will be presented by me on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT. This webinar is the first one of a series of career webinars that ODTUG will be providing in its new Career Track Community that will be released very soon. I cannot give you too much details about this new community yet, but I may say that it will be aimed to provide career content for those young professionals that were just graduated or those that wants to give a shift in their career but they are not sure on how to star on them.

Here is the webinar description:

Are you a young professional who just got out of college and unsure which career path to follow? Are you are thinking about changing your career to something completely new and looking for options? Either way, this webinar is the right one for you. It’s the first in a series that the new ODTUG Career Track Community will bring you to show what Oracle careers look like and where/how to start with them.

During this webinar, we will talk about what an ETL developer career looks like, what the expectations are, challenges, rewards, and which steps are needed to be successful. We will discuss a wide range of topics, such as tools used on the job, certification paths, the importance of social media, user groups, and more. This webinar will be presented by Rodrigo Radtke de Souza, who has been working in the Oracle ETL world for quite some time now and has achieved great accomplishments as an ETL developer, such as Oracle ACE nomination, frequent Kscope speaker, ODTUG Leadership Program participant, and a successful career at Dell.

Here is the link to register to the webinar:

DEVEPM will be at KScope 16!!!

Posted in ACE, EPM, Kscope, Kscope 16, ODI, ODI Architecture, ODTUG, Tips and Tricks with tags , , , , , on December 14, 2015 by radk00

Hi all, how are you doing? We are very happy to announce that, not one, but TWO presentations were approved for KScope 16! Here they are:

1) Incredible ODI tips to work with Hyperion tools that you ever wanted to know
“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 wanted to dynamically run any number of “OS” commands using a single ODI component?
Did you ever wanted to have only one datastore and loop different sources without the need of different ODI contexts?
Did you ever wanted 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 still use an old version of ODI and miss a way to know the values of the Variables in a scenario execution?
Did you know that ODI has 4 “Substitution Tags”? And do you know how useful they are?
Do you use “Dynamic Variables” and know how powerful they can be?
Do you know how to have control over you ODI priority jobs automatically? (Stop, Start and Restart scenarios)
If you want to know the answer of all this questions please join us in this session to learn the special secrets of ODI that will take your development skills to the next level.”

The idea behind this presentation is to show the main secrets we use daily basis to improve code quality and re-use, as well explain why and what more we could do with each of the tips we will present. It’ll be a extreme helpful presentation with a lot of cools stuff and real life example.

2) Take a peek at a smart EPM global environment
“In a fast-moving business environment, finance leaders are successfully leveraging technology advancements to transform their finance organizations and generate value for the business.
Oracle’s enterprise performance management (EPM) applications are an integrated, modular suite that supports a broad range of strategic and financial performance management tools that helps business to unlock their potential.
A global financial environment contains over 10000 users around the world and rely on a range of EPM tools like Hyperion Planning, Essbase, SmartView, DRM and ODI to meet its needs.
This session shows all the complexity of this environment, describing all the relationship between those tools, the technics used to maintain such a large environment in sync, and meeting the most varied needs from the different business and laws around the world to create a complete and powerful business decision engine that takes a global company to the next level.”

The idea in this presentation is to show the design we uses in one big client and why we use it, the gains and how it works. In fact for the ones that follow our blog and our presentations, this will be the tie point of everything we talk about. It’ll be a excellent presentation for people looking for ideas of integrated environments.

We are very excited about it since we’ll be talking about how to improve EPM tools potential using ODI and also how EPM tools connects with each other in a global financial environment. We’ll be very pleased if you guys show up in our presentation. It’ll be great to meet everyone there and talk about EPM and other cool stuff!

Kscope is the largest EPM conference in the world and it will be held on Chicago, Illinois on June 2016. It will feature more than 300 technical sessions, five symposiums, deep dive sessions, and hands on labs over the course of five days.

Got interested? If you sign up by March 25th you’ll take advantage of the Kscope early bird rates, then don’t waste more time and let’s be part of the greatest EPM event in the world. If you are still unsure about it, read our post about how Kscope/ODTUG changed our lives! Kscope is indeed a life changer event!
