Boosting Oracle Applications with Oracle GoldenGate: Hear from Masterminds

In recent blogs we have mentioned new data integration solutions and resources for Oracle Applications. Oracle Data Integration products provide incremental value, the AppAdvantage, to Oracle Application users by maximizing performance and availability, and by enabling real-time insight.

Many Oracle Applications customers such as Herbalife and BT, have seen great results from GoldenGate’s solutions. Herbalife used GoldenGate for offloading Oracle E-Business Suite operational reporting to an ODS. As a result the company increased performance significantly while improving the business reports using real-time data. BT used GoldenGate for upgrading its Siebel CRM system to the latest version without impacting operations, with minimized risk, and improved system performance by 5%.

There are many more customers who achieved major performance, availability, and improved insight. This year at Oracle OpenWorld we decided to showcase GoldenGate’s strong offering for Oracle Applications in a customer panel:

A Panel of Masterminds: Perspectives from Oracle GoldenGate Customers

Tuesday, Sep 24, 3:45 PM - 4:45 PM - Moscone West – 2024

In this session industry leaders, Smuckers , Veolia Water, and Land O’Lakes, will talk about their use of GoldenGate for Oracle Applications including E-Business Suite and JD Edwards. The panelists will discuss the best practices and tips for using GoldenGate’s real-time data replication capabilities in offloading reporting to a reporting environment and migrating or upgrading their application environment.

If you attended previous OpenWorld’s customer panels within the Data Integration track, you know there will be great depth in the discussion. For example, last year we had two customer panels for GoldenGate. In one panel St. Jude Medical, Equifax, and Bank of America, presented how they achieved eliminated planned downtime for critical systems using GoldenGate, and in another panel Comcast, Raymond James, and Turk Telekom discussed operational reporting solutions using GoldenGate. 

Both sessions had great audience participation and I expect this year’s panels will be very interactive too.

Another related session on using GoldenGate for Oracle Applications is going to be delivered by the product management team. GoldenGate PM will be joined with PMs from Oracle  BI Applications and Oracle Coherence teams. The team will present latest  updates such as tight integration with Oracle Coherence, and solutions for Oracle BI Applications, E-Business Suite, Siebel CRM, ATG Web Commerce and more.

Powering Solutions for Oracle Applications with Oracle GoldenGate

Wednesday, Sep 25, 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM - Moscone West - 2024

 I hope those of you who will be at OpenWorld will join these sessions. If you will not be at OpenWorld, you can visit our new resource center to download free screencasts and white papers on our solutions for Oracle Applications.

Sneak Peek into Data Integration Sessions at Oracle OpenWorld 2013

As we are getting ready for another great OpenWorld I'd like to give you sneak peek into what we have planned for data integration topics this year. As in the last few years, the Data Integration track is again full with great customer speakers, product updates, and hands-on-labs. While I am not able to share everything we will cover in these sessions I can say that you will get to hear about new solutions and new features for both Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate.

On Monday at 10:45am our VP of Development Brad Adelberg will open the data integration track by presenting the direction of Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate in the Accelerating Your Business with Oracle Data Integration Solutions (Moscone West 2024) session. Brad will explain how Oracle's data integration products enable organizations to get the most value out of big data,  their investments into Oracle Applications, and cloud deployments. The session will cover the key themes of the upcoming releases of our products.

Following Brad's great overview into overall Oracle Data Integration, GoldenGate product management will present  Oracle GoldenGate New Features and Product Strategy at 12:15pm in the same location. You will hear about new features of the product. Following GoldenGate PM, Oracle Data Integrator product management will present Oracle Data Integrator's product vision and new features in the session:
Oracle Data Integrator Product Update and Future Strategy at 1:45pm in the same room: Moscone West 2024.

The last session of Monday is a must-attend session. You will get to meet the winners of  the Oracle Excellence Awards for Oracle Fusion Middleware Innovation and learn about their impressive success stories across all Fusion Middleware products. I highly recommend adding Oracle Fusion Middleware: Meet This Year’s Most Impressive Innovators to your OpenWorld schedule. It will take place at 4:45pm  at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Lam Research Theater.

On Tuesday data quality product strategy sessions will kick off the day for our track with Oracle Enterprise Data Quality: Product Overview and Roadmap at 10:30am (Moscone West 2024) . Right after this session you will have a chance to hear from GoldenGate customers in the A Panel of Masterminds: Perspectives from Oracle GoldenGate Customers session at 3:30pm in the same room. This panel brings us presenters from Smuckers, Land o Lakes and OTV France. I will discuss this session in more detail next week. For now I will mention that customers will discuss how they achieved zero downtime upgrades and migrations and improved performance using GoldenGate with their Oracle Applications.

At the end of Tuesday you can attend another informative Oracle Data Integrator session about Extracting Strategic Insights from Business Data with Oracle Data Integrator (5:30pm, Moscone West 2012)

Wednesday starts with a great customer panel, Real-World Data Quality: Customers Using Oracle Enterprise Data Quality, at 10:15am in Moscone 2024. The must-attend session of Wednesday is Customer Perspectives: Oracle Data Integrator.  Paychex, Infiniti Insurance are among the customers presenting in this session and will be discussing best practices in implementing Oracle Data Integrator. Don't miss this session at 1:15pm in Moscone 2012.  I also recommend checking out at 3:30pm Making the Move to Oracle Data Integrator. ODI PM will be joined by Oracle partners Rittman Mead and sumIT AG. Together they will share great tips for a phased migration path from Oracle Warehouse Builder to Oracle Data Integrator.

Thursday is packed with many in-depth technical product deep dive sessions from experts. The two that I want to highlight here are: Configuring Oracle Business Intelligence Applications on Oracle Data Integrator: A Deep Dive, which will explain best practices for configuring and tuning Oracle Business Intelligence Applications' latest release which embeds Oracle Data Integrator.  This one is at 12:30pm at Moscone South 303. The second session I recommend, Deploying Oracle GoldenGate with Multitenant Container Databases, will share details on how to set up GoldenGate in the context of container databases (CDBs). You can attend it at 2pm at Moscone South 200.

Even though I listed 12 session in this blog post for you to review, there are many more, very informative sessions available this year at OpenWorld. Please make sure to review the Focus On Data Integration to discover other sessions that may interest you.

Stay tuned for more blogs on the some of the key sessions I mentioned above.

The most challenging part of blogging about OpenWorld is…

...not knowing where to start. Do I talk about the great presentations from our partners and executives in our keynote sessions; do I write about the music festival, or many great sessions we had in the Data integration track? A short blog can never do justice. For now I will stick to our data integration sessions for those who could not attend with so many other sessions running concurrently. And in the coming weeks we will be writing more about what we talked in our sessions and what we learned from our customers and partners.

For today, I will give some of the key highlights from Data Integration sessions that took place on Wednesday and Thursday of last week  On Wednesday, GoldenGate was highlighted in multiple Database and Data Integration sessions. I found particularly the session about Oracle’s own use of GoldenGate for its large E-Business Suite implementation for supply chain management and service contract management very interesting. In 2011, Oracle implemented a new operational reporting system using GoldenGate real-time data replication to an operational data store that leverages data from E-Business Suite.The results are very impressive. Mark Field, VP of Applications Development in the IT organization shared with us that data freshness improved by 2,210X while report run performance improved by 60X. For more information on this implementation and its results please see the white paper: Real-Time Operational Reporting for E-Business Suite via GoldenGate Replication to an Operational Data Store


Other sessions that provided very rich content were: "Best Practices for Conflict Detection and Resolution in Oracle GoldenGate for Active/Active", "Tuning and Troubleshooting Oracle GoldenGate on Oracle Database", "Next-Generation Data Integration on Oracle Exadata" and "Accelerate Oracle Data Integrator with Advanced Features, SOA, Groovy, SDK, and XML". Below is a slide presented by Stephan Haisley in the Tuning and Troubleshooting Oracle GoldenGate session. If you missed them during OpenWorld, I highly recommend downloading the slides. We will continue to blog about these topics and related resources.

Oracle OpenWorld Highlights

We are in the final days of Oracle OpenWorld 2012 and the data integration team have been hard at work giving sessions, meeting customers, demonstrating product and conducting hands-on labs.    It has been a great conference, but the best part is meeting our customers and learning about all the great implementations of our products. 

Wednesday was the last day that the exhibition hall was open and attendees were getting in their final opportunities to see our products and meet with the product management team.   Two hours before the close of the hall, people lined up to learn about GoldenGate 11gR2, Monitor, Adapters, Veridata, and all the different use cases.    Here's a picture of Sjaak Vossepoel, who is our DIS Sales Consulting Manager for EMEA speaking to a potential customer on the options of using Oracle GoldenGate for heterogenous data replication. 


Over the last two days, the GoldenGate team ran two labs; Introduction to Oracle GoldenGate Veridata and Deep Dive into Oracle GoldenGate.   Both of the labs were completely booked out and unfortunately we had to turn away people.   BUT,  all of our labs were recorded recently so if you were not able to get into the lab or did not have enough time to complete your labs, visit youtube.com/oraclegoldengate to see a  complete recording of the labs we used at OpenWorld plus more.

 Here are a couple pictures from the Deep Dive into Oracle GoldenGate lead by Chis Lawless from the Product Management team.

Thanks to the GoldenGate Hands-on Lab team for putting on a great session!!!

We will post more information about where you can find additional details on OpenWorld as they become public.

Moving Data from Multiple AS/400 iSeries Sources with Oracle Data Integrator

This year at Oracle OpenWorld I have the pleasure to be presenting a session with one of our customers: Suddenlink Communications.

In this session, you will discover how Suddenlink utilizes Oracle Data Integrator to replicate data in near real time, sourcing from multiple regional libraries on one iSeries server to one set of target tables in an Oracle Database. We will discuss best practices for running all regional scenarios in parallel against one single target system without requiring duplicate copies of Oracle Data Integrator processes. You will also learn about how Suddenlink made innovative knowledge modules modifications to retrieve massive amounts of AS/400 iSeries changes quickly and with no impact on the source system.

If you're interested in moving data from an AS/400 iSeries system and would like to see how Suddenlink used Oracle Data Integrator to meet its IT and business needs via its flexible architecture then I recommend attending this session:

Moving Data from Multiple AS/400 iSeries Sources with Oracle Data Integrator
