APPLICATION EXPRESS-THURSDAY DEEP DIVE Oracle APEX Security Deep Dive
Scott Spendolini, Enkitec
Securing an application - APEX or otherwise - is too often an afterthought, if it gets done at all. With an almost weekly high-profile security breach, it is critical to spend time securing your application. But where do you start?
This two-hour “deep dive” session will discuss and demonstrate what you as an APEX developer can do to ensure that your applications are as secure as possible. It will discuss which settings - at both the instance and application level - play an important role in securing your instance and applications. Different architectures and the pros and cons of each will be considered. And it will also show how to ensure that you’re not introducing vulnerabilities when you write code.
ADF THURSDAY DEEP DIVE ADF: Real-Life ADF Mobile: Things You Don't Learn from the Developer's Guide
Luc Bors, AMIS Services
Oracle ADF Mobile has been around for a while. There is a great developer guide available for everybody who wants to create an ADF Mobile application. However, when you are building your first ADF Mobile application you will definitely run into issues that cannot be resolved by reading the developer guide.
Think of performance issues when taking pictures with modern devices. Images can take up to five megabytes. How on earth can you upload these to your enterprise database? How do you make your application look like a native app? What can you do to create a grid-like springboard? These are all topics not covered by the developer guide or by any available ADF Mobile training. In this session, you will learn solutions for these and more ADF Mobile challenges.
Developer's Toolkit and The Database THURSDAY DEEP DIVE How to Find and Fix Your (APEX, Java, .NET, OBIEE, etc.) Application Performance Problem Cary Millsap , Method R Corporation
How long does your code take to run? Is it changing? When it is slow, WHY is it slow? Is it your fault, or somebody else's? Can you prove it? How much faster could your code be? Do you know how to measure the performance of your code as user workloads and data volumes increase? These are fundamental questions about performance, but the vast majority of Oracle application developers can't answer them. The most popular performance tools available to them - and to the database administrators that run their code in production - are incapable of answering any of these questions. But the Oracle Database can give you exactly what you need to answer these questions and many more. You can know exactly where YOUR CODE is spending YOUR TIME. This session explains how.
Essbase THURSDAY DEEP DIVE Thursday Deep Dive: Essbase Experts Extended
Tim German, Qubix
Kscope puts more Essbase expertize into the same spot as any other event in the world. Rapid-fire panel discussions are always fun and well-attended, but don’t allow much time for divergent views on a problem or considered answers.
This year we will ask attendees to submit questions throughout the week, with the most popular and interesting put to a panel of Essbase thought leaders. The panelists will have time to discuss (or argue) and present more detailed responses than might be possible in 'live' sessions or presentation Q&As.
The stellar panel line-up will be:
Carol Crider (Senior Technical Support Specialist, Oracle)
Steve Liebermensch (Essbase Product Manager, Oracle)
Planning THURSDAY DEEP DIVE
Cameron Lackpour, CL Solve
Planning and Essbase are two arrows in the Oracle EPM quiver that are indelibly tied together - Essbase is the calculation and analytical heart of Planning; Planning is the incredibly popular application wrapped around Essbase. One could not exist without the other.
Yet when we EPM practitioners think about these two twinned tools, when they are sold to customers, when they are implemented for clients, and even when Essbase and Planning are presented at conferences it often seems as though they are two completely separate products. Ignoring the intertwined nature of the products lessens their power and utilization.
It's time to end this artificial separation.
Join Oracle Product Managers Gabby Rubin (Essbase) and Shankar Viswanathan (Planning) in a never-before, you'll-only-see-it-at-Kscope, OMG-they-are-actually-doing-it panel that let's you, the Best and Brightest Planning and Essbase practitioners (yes, you are the Best and Brightest because you are at Kscope14) ask just about any question you might have about current product features, where the two products are headed, and why the two products maybe do need to be separate, yet linked offerings.
What's happening with Essbase that will radically change the way we implement Planning? How is Planning driving the feature set of Essbase? What do you wish the two products would do better together?
This is our chance to understand how Oracle views and understands the products.
Join us, won't you?

Financial Close: THURSDAY DEEP DIVE What Would Happen if I Did... in Hyperion Financial Management?, Part 3
Christopher Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzel
In this third installment of the "What Would Happen..." series, Chris Barbieri takes a Mythusters approach to explain what would happen if I...
- Changed the Org By Period flag on an existing application
- Added a dimension or two - what happens to rules and reports?
- Added years to an application?
- Changed an account's Line Item Detail flag?
- Removed the Allow Adjs flag on an entity?
- Changed the alias on a custom dimension?
The central theme for this session is how to set up and test each situation, and also observe the application and database changes associated with each. The outcome will provide you with a much deeper understanding of how HFM actually works.
