Community Video Profile: Kevin McGinley - OBIEE, Business Intelligence, and Advanced Analytics

Here's a tip of the ArchBeat hat to business intelligence expert Kevin McGinley for his recent confirmation as an Oracle ACE Director.

The video above was recorded at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 (a few weeks before his ACED confirmation) when I had a chance to ask Kevin about recent projects and challenges, and about the business intelligence video series he produces with fellow BI whiz Steward Bryson. Kevin is a very sharp guy and I'm sure you'll enjoy this short interview.

Podcast Show Notes: Old Habits Die Hard in the New SOA World

Like the previous series, the latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast program was also recorded in a hotel room just around the corner from Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco just a few weeks ago. The gathered experts, all members of the OTN architect community, agreed to participate in an informal roundtable discussion of what's happening in Service Oriented Architecture. As you'll hear, the conversation ranged from the maturity of Service Oriented Architecture technology and tools, to the the lingering and typically self-imposed problems that can prevent organizations from realizing the full potential of SOA, to what SOA means in the era of *aaS, mobile computing, and big data.

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1: SOA technology and tools are mature, says this panel of experts, but why do some organizations still struggle to take full advantage of industrialized SOA?
  • Listen to Part 2: Human nature and a lack of trust among stakeholders can thwart successful SOA. Can a marketplace approach and social tools improve the situation?
  • Listen to Part 3: Do SOA stakeholders recognize the problems caused by poor communication among siloed service development teams?
