The UK Oracle User Group (UK-OUG) offers its members the opportunity to review related books and publications (see here for details), in return for receiving a free copy of the book itself. Given that some of the Oracle technical books can be quite expensive to buy it is often worth keeping an eye out for[…]
Over at my other home (HCM Aces) I let slip that I had a copy of the RUP6 “bug list” – ie the list of published bugs that have been fixed by the Oracle E-Business Suite RUP6 patch. I have now been inundated with people asking me for a copy of it. Before going “public”[…]
As someone who got “into” computers around 1979/1980 I have always held an interest in the “Golden Age” of computing (one day i will write up some of my stories from times gone by ). For now, I have to make do with articles such as the following. For One Night Only, Silicon Valley’s Homebrew[…]
Hi all Just a quick note to say that the updated agenda is now online for the UK-OUG HCM SIG meeting on the 5th November. It can be found here I will be presenting a tweaked version of the HCM Analytics Presentation that I did for this year’s Open World. If you are a member of the[…]
Right then, now I have got most of the ranting out of my system it’s time to reflect upon my own session experiences from this year’s conference. I was co-presenting a session covering the HR Analytics implementation we had completed for the NHS ESR project. Along with all the other HCM offerings, we were decamped[…]
So the annual Oracle jamboree is over for another year. Life returns to normal in San Francisco (or whatever passes for “normal” there), and the 60,000 or so delegates have returned back to their respective countries, customers, clouds and cubicles. What can we learn from this homage to the big “O”? Well, for starters, I[…]
Okay, so it has been a while since my last post. The excuse this time is that I have been away on leave (or vacation as my American colleagues would say). However I am back now, and reasonably refreshed and recharged, and ready for work. My immediate challenge is to put together a presentation for[…]
I’ve just received this newsletter and thought I should share it. It’s a worthy cause, and for those of a certain age (especially in the UK), it should spark a wave of nostalgia. The Centre for Computing History Museum opens this weekend “It’s been a long time coming but we are really please to announce[…]
The things one must do to link into social media! The renowned corner of the internet, Technorati, have a unique method of “verifiying” one’s claim to a Blog. Using a token verification system, you are required to include a token key (in this case 7D7CXPCDQ68W) into a published blog post. They then verify the feed[…]
And another piece of the Sun legacy is set to vanish. In todays news i read…
In the late nineties, whilst working as an Oracle Employee, i worked on a global HCM implementation at Sun Microsystems, and the Sun Ray kit was a marvel to use, especially compared to what laptops were like back in those days. I can fondly remember “hot desking” between Sun offices in the US and all i had to take with me was my smart card. Stick it in a new Sun Ray and “pop” up came my desktop as before.
Smart, clever, and really innovative technology that should have had a better marketing / PR than it actually did.
