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.

Posted in ACE, EPM, Oracle, Uncategorized with tags , , , on December 4, 2015 by RZGiampaoli

Hi guys how are you doing?

I know we are not writing anything for a long now and I’m here just to give you two good news (and one is the reason I’m not writing anything until now :))

First of all I just received the information that Oracle level up me to ACE :).

O_ACELogo_clr

That’s means, I’m the first and the only oracle ACE in the BI track in the entire Brazil 🙂

I’m so happy and glad to receive this title that is difficult to express in words, but I need to thanks you guys for support and incentive.

The other good news (and this one explain my absence). I just got married :), and I need to say, it was a great party 🙂

I’ll publish some pictures just to show how much fun we have 🙂

And because I’m not a conventional guy 🙂 (No body in IT is right?) I had to do my wedding a little bit different 🙂 and I must say, it was worthy :). I think it was the best wedding I ever went 🙂 (by the way, in Brazil the wedding start 4 pm and goes until 5 am).

A lot of fun.

Now talking about work, we are working in some new stuff, and very soon we’ll have some cool thing posted here then…

See you soon and thanks.

ODI needs your help: Petition for EPM KMs support

Posted in EPM, ODI, ODI 12c, Oracle, Petition with tags , , , , on October 27, 2014 by radk00

Hi all,

Today’s post is a request for all of our readers. As you know, ODI 12c does not support EPM KMs. Although it seems that Oracle has announced that they will support the Hyperion Essbase KMs sometime in the future, no such acknowledgement has been made for the Hyperion Planning and Hyperion Financial Management Knowledge modules and it all indicates that this functionality will migrate to FDMEE application. This has created a lot of noise in the EPM community, especially in big clients that have invested a large amount of time and money to build ODI ETL processes around their EPM applications.

Having this in mind, Chris Rothermel (thank you so much Chris for all your effort on this, the ODI/EPM community really appreciate this!) has created an online petition requesting Oracle to rethink its strategy and add the EPM KMs support in ODI 12c.

DEVEPM supports this petition and asks you all to sign it!

Link for the petition site here: Change.org

Some of you may think that signing this petition is going to make you go “against Oracle” in some way but that’s totally the opposite. The ODI/EPM community is raising this petition just because we love ODI and all Oracles’ EPM tools and we really want to see them shine! We live and breathe ODI/EPM every single day and we may tell you for sure that ODI is the best ETL tool in the market today and should bring all technologies under its wings. See what the ODI team is doing for Golden Gate/Big Data integrations…. It’s just amazing! We just want the same for all EPM tools!

Is this petition going to have any effect on Oracles’ thought? I don’t know, but they need to know at least that there is an ODI/EPM community out there that cares about it and that will be left alone if they decide to abandon the EPM KMs support. Another suggestion for Oracle is to make the EPM KMs open source at least, so the EPM community would modify/upgrade them as needed when a new version of EPM tools hits the market. DEVEPM even offers to be a major contributor to these changes if they go open source 🙂

Thanks guys, we are counting on you to make this petition work!

See ya!

Victory!!!!! It seems that Oracle has heard the community!!! Take a look on what Chris has added to the petition site:

“12 de jan de 2015 — Hooray! The Hyperion Planning Knowledge Modules will likely be supported in ODI 12c. That means both Essbase and Planning will be supported in the next release of ODI. That’s a change for the better. No official word on this yet. The HFM Knowledge Modules have a different story for ODI version 12C. Since the HFM API in version 11.1.2.4 will be Java there is a big architecture change and the ODI KMs for HFM will not be available or supported by Oracle for the next release.

Also note that Planning has a new set of API’s with 11.1.2.4 so look for improvements in both Planning and ODI.”

Thanks for all those that contributed somehow to this cause! Lets wait for the official Oracle announcement!
