OAF Personalizations 2021 - New Advanced Examples by Susan Behn Have you ever wanted to add an LOV to an OAF page without using jDeveloper?

This and many other examples in this presentation can be easily replicated to streamline the user experience.

The primary purpose of this presentation is to promote personalization over customization or extension.

Oracle has continued to improve the personalization functionality especially for OA Framework.

However, while Oracle provides some documentation on these new features, this presentation provides some real world examples with detail step by step instructions specifically for the E-Business Suite using the Vision database.

Oracle Linux DevSecOps: Staying Ahead of Cyberthreats by Nirav Kamdar Oracle Linux (OL) Premier Support includes KVM and server virtualization manager, Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment which includes Kubernetes, Kata Containers, and more. IT systems require regular patching for security, performance, and compliance reasons. OL Premier support also includes zero-downtime kernel and user-space updates with Oracle Ksplice.
1. Secure Linux: Oracle Linux is certified under Common Criteria and FIPS 140-2, as well as Listed on NIAP product compliant list.
2. Securing Linux Kernel: Non-Disruptive kernel patching, Ksplice supports critical user space packages such as Glibc and OpenSSL, KVM and Xen hypervisors. Ksplice also delivers Known exploit detection for privilege escalation vulnerabilities.
3. Secure Containers: Kata containers are lightweight VMs, which behaves like containers with the isolation of VMS. With Kata containers, get security for workload while running them on Kubernetes.
4. Secure Code: Istio can help secure application/code, while delivers automatic encryption of communication between services.

There is no silver bullet to Cyber Security, hence leveraging defence-in-depth approach will at least improve security posture.

Converged Database by Arvind Bhope Modern data driven applications are bringing in a lot more complexity with different data types like Relational,Document,Spatial,Graph, etc and workloads Transactions ,analytics, ML,IOT to name a few. This data and workload require different database algorithms to solve with unique development paradigms and the two possible data strategies are Single Purpose purpose built databases which are best of breed for individual data
types and workload OR use a Converged database for all data types and workloads.

Problems ?
Once we have a single purpose individual db for Spatial,ML, Blockchain, JSON, Graph etc.. we are actually introducing a lot many variables to the ever changing components in existing infrastructure which inherently is increasing the complexity.

Single purpose Database would eventually end up doing a lot of custom work, writing more code independently using individual Proprietary API's and transaction models. Propagating and transforming all these changes with fragmented data all over the place creates lot more complexity and there is definitely a need to integrate it with a lot of customization. This Integration is a job that never ends.

The necessary features like security, availability,scalability are just very complex to achieve,as each of them has its own models to be built. Later, to propagate any of the smallest change and integrate its a huge activity. Availability,scalability,consistency,End to End security etc are very limited in their areas by weakest of their databases that are implemented. Combining all of them gives worst of weakness. These systems are JUST NO economies of scale.

What if we say all the above challenges are addressed in Converged database.
Oracle Converged Database is a data innovation platform ,an ecosystem which increases the strategic business value of data.

What’s new with the World's fastest EBS reporting solution? by Beth Skerrett World’s fastest EBS reporting solution – Increase your team efficiency by getting end-user operational reports faster than ever before with modern, easy to use reporting. This presentation shows how a new approach can provide easier, faster, more efficient access to data in an instantly usable format that end users love. See how to migrate reports from existing ageing and inefficient EBS reporting tools like Discoverer, Polaris, Report Wands, and BI Publisher. With the ability to export over one million transactions in less than 10 seconds, and with our unlimited data output, it is an option that users of large volumes of data need to see to believe!

This presentation will demonstrate how job satisfaction and productivity can be increased for all EBS business users and developers. We demonstrate Blitz Report™, a reporting option available to EBS operational users looking to manage large volumes of transactional data quickly and efficiently, and how using this solution with Oracle's Enterprise Command Centers is a game-changer for EBS teams.

The objective is to help EBS business users and developers increase their job satisfaction and productivity by adding a new transactional reporting solution to their current reporting and analytics tools.

Running Oracle Databases on Containers and Kubernetes with Pure Storage by Chris Bannayan Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 75% of global organisations will be running containerised applications in production, up from less that 30% today.
Businesses now, more than ever should be putting together a strategy of how they will embrace this world of containers and Kubernetes to optimise their workloads in the transforming world.

See how Pure integration with Containers and Kubernetes, coupled with its simplicity, efficiency and performance will modernise your data centre, reduce your complexity and increase your agility, so that your business can focus more on innovating and less on managing.

During the session we’ll cover:
● How to create Docker containers using the Pure Storage plugin
● How to create persistent volumes using the Pure plugin
● How to create Oracle containers with persistent storage
● How to clone Oracle containers to create Dev/Test environments
● How to refresh Dev/test containers from a prod container
