Time to wake up

This post is nothing more than a line in the sand, really.

After my post on “retiring” in November last year and then the one about working to network, as opposed to working to network just prior to 2013 year end, I have been very, very quiet. Well, I had things outside of Oracle and IT to do and they were more important to me. I’d say I have made a reasonable stab at them. My wife would say I have been a lazy and good-for-nothing so-and-so. If you do not know me, trust my wife. If you do know me, you already know to trust my wife :-) .

Norway bound

I cant wait to get to Norway again for this year’s OUGN conference.

It’s awesome fun.

I’ll be talking about Clone DB, Optimizer Stats and Analystics in SQL

Java 8 Released

Java 8 released! Download it here... Oracle continues to beat Sun’s track record for actually updating Java on a regular basis. Java 8 brings many exciting new features and many miscellaneous improvements including:
• Java tippy-toes into the world of “Functional” programming with the addition of Lambda expressions; not quite a “Closure” but Lambdas allow the definition of stand-alone methods tied to the java.util.Function interface; functional methods are perfect for one-time code needs
• Annotations may be used anywhere a Type is used; not just at Type declaration
• New java.util.Stream API allows functional style operations on streams of elements in collections providing the ability to perform bulk operations such as map-reduce
• HashMap improvements
• Compact profiles to allow Java to function in low-resource environments

Delphix Modernization Engine

Delphix Modernization Engine is built on version 4 of our Agile Data Platform. Delphix built the Modernization Engine to help companies trying to migrate or consolidate data centers (including migration to private, public clouds) or retire/rationalize application portfolios. The product is designed to dramatically reduce project risk, as well as time and run-rate IT costs. Key functions include:
