Happy Friday, everyone!
Our spotlight this week is on a really cool technical tip on the Oracle Technology Network from Yuli Vasiliev called "How to Launch Linux Utilities from Oracle Database". From Yuli's introduction:

This allows you to do things such as query operating system data and then join it with data in Oracle Database."
