La persona que pudo haber salvado a @Oracle se fue

Oracle Tool WatchOracle Cloudvesterli

Thomas Kurian, que solía ser el técnico de Oracle, acaba de dejar la empresa. Dijo que se estaría tomando un "tiempo libre prolongado de Oracle", mientras que Oracle está tratando de dar la impresión de que Thomas regresará en breve.

Eso es una mala noticia para toda la comunidad de Oracle.

"Son noticias más graves de lo que cualquiera en esta tierra puede entender, ...".

Aragorn, en El señor de los anillos

En los viejos tiempos, cuando el programa Oracle ACE todavía podía permitirse invitar a todos los directores de ACE a una reunión en Redwood Shores antes de OpenWorld, la reunión con Thomas Kurian siempre fue un momento destacado. Constantemente me quedé impresionado con la comprensión de Thomas de los detalles técnicos en el portafolio de productos de Oracle y sentí que Oracle estaría en buenas manos cuando se hiciera cargo de Larry.

El rumor es que Thomas quería que el software de Oracle se ejecutara en Amazon y Azure, pero Larry no lo permite. Larry está enamorado del sofisticado hardware Exa-this y Exa-that de Oracle y ha pasado años atacando a Amazon, por lo que es natural que quiera que todo el mundo se ejecute en el hardware de Oracle. 

Thomas, por otro lado, es el líder de 35,000 ingenieros de software y quiere ver que el gran software que su equipo ha construido se use tanto como sea posible.

Pensarías que Oracle podría saberlo mejor. Observaron a Sun pegarse obstinadamente a su sofisticado hardware hasta que estuvieron casi en la ruina y pudieron venderlo a bajo precio, pero ahora Oracle sigue la misma estrategia.

"Creo que Thomas tiene razón, pero Larry es dueño de la compañía."

¿Qué significa esto para usted como profesional de Oracle? Significa que Oracle ha perdido una oportunidad más para volverse relevante en la nube, y el tiempo se está agotando a medida que Amazon y Azure avanzan más. No apueste su carrera como desarrollador, DBA o gerente de TI en ningún producto de Oracle Cloud.

Por supuesto, la base de datos estará disponible por décadas aún ...

Leader of International Investment Fraud Sentenced to 30 Years in Federal Prison


PHOENIX – On Sept. 22, 2018, James Jeffrey Hinkeldey, 66, of Scottsdale, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Steven P. Logan to 30 years and five months in federal prison. Earlier this year, a federal jury convicted Hinkeldey of conspiracy, wire and mail fraud, money laundering, and aggravated identity theft charges stemming from his role as one of the leaders in an $18 million investment fraud affecting 225 victims. 

“Through fraud, this defendant stole the life savings from members of our community, many of whom were close to retirement; his lengthy prison sentence is well-deserved,” stated Elizabeth A. Strange, First Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Arizona. “Our office will continue to work closely with the FBI to prosecute financial predators like Hinkeldey.”

“Considering there were hundreds of victims and millions of dollars lost, it is fitting that James Hinkeldey‘s sentence is one of the highest federal white collar sentences in the District of Arizona,” said Michael DeLeon, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Phoenix Division. “We are pleased that the defendants in this case are being held accountable for their crimes and that Hinkeldey and his co-conspirator were ordered to pay restitution to the victims. The FBI would like to thank the Arizona U.S. Attorney’s Office for their work on this case. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to investigate and prosecute those who commit complex financial crimes.”

From 2006 to 2012, Hinkeldey and several others solicited millions of dollars from victims for purported investment in a variety of projects and companies, including land development in Mexico, recycling companies in Las Vegas and Chicago, and distressed real estate in Phoenix. Hinkeldey and his co-conspirators promoted their fraudulent investment schemes in seminars, magazine articles, radio broadcasts, and private offering documents to give the fraudulent investments the appearance of legitimacy. 

In reality, the solicitations and offering documents were riddled with false statements, including the education and experience of Hinkeldey and his co-conspirators, the true ownership of property involved in the projects, and the feasibility of the so-called guaranteed returns. Ultimately, Hinkeldey and his co-conspirators used investor funds not only to line their own pockets, but also to make Ponzi payments to create the facade of a successful business. 

Late last year, Hinkeldey’s partner in the conspiracy, Jason Mogler, formerly of Phoenix, Ariz., was sentenced to 24 years and 4 months in federal prison for his role in the fraud. Hinkeldey and Mogler were also ordered to pay restitution to the victims for losses they incurred.

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Phoenix Division of the FBI. The prosecution was handled by Monica Klapper and Peter Sexton, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, District of Arizona, Phoenix.

Survey: Lack of Confidence in Clinical Trial Data Delaying Drug Development


Press Release

Costly data preparation, slow data reconciliation and poor data quality hindering drug development efforts for life-saving therapies

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Sep 24, 2018

Pharmaceutical companies share significant concerns over their ability to bring more drugs to market faster due to clinical data challenges. A new global study, commissioned by Oracle Health Sciences and conducted by Pharma Intelligence, revealed that 57 percent of the clinical researchers surveyed believe that their clinical data issues result in trial delays. 



In addition to trial delays, 81 percent of respondents cited data governance issues as the biggest challenge in meeting regulatory compliance. The top three data issues according to survey respondents were duplicate data/inconsistent data, data quality and data integrity/traceability. 



“Data governance is our top concern because clinical data quality issues can hinder a trial’s completion,” said Melonie Longan, Director, Data Operations, Functional Services, Premier Research. Premier Research is a CRO serving biotechnology customers who are researching therapies related to analgesia, dermatology, hematology, oncology, neuroscience, pediatrics, and rare disease. 

When asked what the top three operational challenges were with their clinical trial data, 51 percent cited data completeness, 45 percent said data quality and 43 percent, data cleaning. 



“The kind of clinical data quality issues such as those highlighted in this report can have significant negative impacts,” said Julie Barenholtz, Principal Clinical Data Manager, Cytel Inc. “As a data company, we are always looking for ways to improve the quality of the data and process it efficiently so that patients have access to treatments as quickly as possible.” Founded in 1987, Cytel is a multinational contract research organization (CRO) known for its pioneering work in statistical science and the design and implementation of adaptive clinical trials. 

Not surprisingly, over three-fourths of respondents cited inconsistent data and missing patient data as the most critical clinical data problems to catch in clinical trials. 



“Clinical teams are forced to spend time cleaning data instead of analyzing it, and they can’t always see the entire picture of what is available to them; this delays the ability to make critical decisions about the trial and holds up regulatory submission,” said Steve Rosenberg, General Manager, Oracle Health Sciences. “Clinical researchers shouldn’t have to spend time and resources on fixing data issues that technology was built to handle. Technology can, and should, be used to eliminate unnecessary manual intervention and mitigate risk so we can get therapies in the hands of patients who are waiting.” 

The top three risks highlighted by the research include the need for additional data reconciliation; incomplete data to determine efficacy and patient replacements. 



“Wasting precious time reconciling clinical data issues can be detrimental and costly to our customers,” said Vicki Gashwiler, Associate Director, Strategic Development & Market Access, MedTech Division for Novella Clinical. “Our top concern is proactive data management and data monitoring to reduce the risk of clinical data quality issues slowing down a trial. These delays can have significant financial implications for our customers.” 
About the Survey 

The survey was conducted by Pharma Intelligence and sponsored by Oracle Health Sciences and ran from the beginning of August 2018 into September 2018. The largest percentage of responses came from clinical researchers, data scientists and clinical programmers from biopharma organizations and a small percentage of medical device companies and Contract Research Organizations. Respondents were from around the globe with 61 percent from North America, 20 percent from Asia Pacific and 17 percent from Europe.

Oracle Boosts Software Development Productivity with New Java Release


Press Release

JDK 11 first Long Term Support release under new six-month cadence

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Sep 25, 2018

Continuing its commitment to deliver a regular cadence of Java innovations and updates to the community, Oracle today announced the general availability of Java SE 11 (JDK11). JDK 11 brings a number of new developer productivity enhancements as well as support for modern cryptographic and Internet standards, including TLS 1.3 and HTTP/2. 

The first Long Term Support (LTS) update under Oracle’s six-month release schedule announced last year, JDK 11 is the result of extensive collaboration between Oracle engineers and members of the worldwide Java developer community via the OpenJDK Community and the JCP. Since the release of Java SE 8, the community has collaborated on more than 100 new enhancements that were added through JDK 9, 10, and 11. 

“TLS 1.3 was recently approved and it's fantastic news that Java SE 11 will support it right away,” said Jim Manico, co-author of Iron Clad Java and founder of Manicode Security. “The new Java release cycle for Java SE means that important security protocols and other standards such as TLS 1.3 can be released and adopted rapidly, giving application developers more tools to write secure software with the world’s most popular language - Java!” 

Customers can now migrate from Java SE 8 to Java SE 11 at the pace that best meets their unique business needs, backed by Oracle’s Long Term Support. Oracle will offer its customers security and bug-fixing updates for JDK 11 through 2026, with the next LTS release scheduled for September 2021. 

“Thanks to continuous improvements by Oracle and the Java Community, the JVM remains the best platform for building applications,” said Rafael Winterhalter, from Scienta Norway and creator of the popular Byte Buddy code generation and manipulation library for Java. “The Java SE 11 release gives me confidence as we see the benefits of the module system taking hold, making Java applications more encapsulated and transparent. This is crucial in times where applications become increasingly complex and rely on growing numbers of dependencies. Newer features being explored like 'nestmates' provide great promise of improved startup and compilation performance going forward”. 

Key features in Java 11 include:
· Nest-based access controls: eliminates the need for compilers to insert accessibility-broadening bridge methods.
· Dynamic class-file constants: reduces the cost and disruption of creating new forms of materializable class-file constants and offers broader options for expressivity and performance.
· ZGC: a completely passive GC implementation with a bounded allocation limit and the lowest latency overhead possible.
· Flight Recorder: low overhead data collection framework for troubleshooting Java applications and the HotSpot JVM.
“The LTS model releases enable our customers to migrate from one well-supported Java SE LTS release to the next at their own pace, while at the same time allowing the Java developer ecosystem to get access to improvements faster than before,” said Georges Saab, Vice President, Software Development, Java Platform Group at Oracle. “Together with the introduction of Oracle Java SE Subscription, customers now have an easy way to benefit from access to regular releases of tested and certified performance, stability, and security updates, directly from Oracle.” 

Java SE Subscription is Oracle’s low-cost and predictable offering to manage Oracle Java SE installations across enterprises. To learn more about JDK 11, visit the Java PM blog and see the full list of features here.

Oracle Study Reveals Increased Network Complexity is Driving Security, Visibility, and Control Challenges for IT Leaders


Press Release

Ninety-One Percent of IT Leaders Rank Security as Top Challenge with Expanding Enterprise Networks

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Sep 25, 2018

As enterprise networks grow, so does the challenge of effectively managing them a new Oracle Communications survey found. In the "Enterprise Networks in Transition: Taming the Chaos" report, IT and telecom leaders noted that security, fraud, and increased complexity resulting from channel proliferation are amongst their top concerns. Companies are increasingly looking to emerging technologies, such as biometrics, artificial-intelligence, and blockchain as opportunities to improve security and control. 

In June 2018, Oracle surveyed 277 IT, telecom and network decision makers globally regarding their perspectives on key business and network trends and the solutions that will help them compete and thrive in a digital world. Sixty-six percent of respondents represented companies with at least 11 locations and 62 percent managed operations in multiple countries. 

Separately, software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) was also listed as a critical technology underpinning the evolution of enterprise networks. Yet, North America lags other regions in software-defined networking (SDN) deployment (50 percent versus 65-78 percent). 

“In today’s digital economy, enterprises face increasing operational complexities, heightened customer expectations and an unprecedented amount of chaos in the form of security breaches and communications overload that require a higher level of network sophistication than ever before,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. 
Bigger Enterprise Networks, Bigger Problems 

· Security poses an ongoing challenge: 91 percent of respondents ranked security as a top three challenge, particularly in Asia and Latin America, where mobile usage is most popular. Additionally, more than one-third of respondents ranked security as their top challenge in relation to planning, deploying and managing their enterprise networks. As mobile devices continue to expand and redefine the network edge, security continues to be a top-of-mind issue.

· Emerging tech seen as possible solution: Seventy-six percent of respondents agreed that they require new solutions to improve visibility and control over their entire network. Sixty-nine percent of respondents noted they will use biometrics in network security use cases and 57 percent artificial intelligence (AI). In tandem, AI and machine learning were also identified as key technologies in supporting quality of service and cost efficiencies (30 percent each), while blockchain was identified as a top technology to improve network control by 27 percent of respondents.

· Channel proliferation drives greater complexity: 76 percent of survey respondents stated that the breadth and reach of their enterprise network is expanding. Network users increasingly have more channels available to them, which means that managing time and productivity is becoming increasingly difficult. While voice and e-mail are the predominant communications channels, video, chat, and other in-app communications are growing increasingly popular. This impacts how the network is deployed and managed and what defines the edge of the network.

· Leaders are focused on fraud: At least 83 percent of respondents identified virtually all types of network and telecoms fraud as a serious issue, with more than half citing identity fraud as a primary concern in relation to real-time communications. Solutions must adapt and evolve in anticipation of current and constantly evolving threats, particularly as network complexity increases.

· SD-WAN is critical for evolving enterprise networks: The majority (71 percent) of respondents agreed that SD-WAN is critical for their enterprise networks to evolve, and a greater share (88 percent) of respondents from global companies with 101 or more locations said the same. Amongst large, global companies considering SD-WAN, convenience and ease of deployment was the top driver for 48 percent, followed by reliability (36 percent) and traffic-related flexibility (34 percent).

New Oracle and MIT Technology Review Insights Report Examines State of Open Banking


Press Release 

Financial Services executives agree on need to react fast to market changes and customer expectations 

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Sep 25, 2018 

Open banking is one of the most critical trends driving change in the U.S. and international banking community. It represents the move from closed to open financial systems where data is shared with third parties through the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Oracle Financial Services commissioned an industry outlook report from MIT Technology Review Insights that examines how banks are responding to regulatory changes, market shifts and business model changes as a result of open banking. 

The new report, Open Banking: The Race to Deliver Banking-as-a-Service, finds that most banks are still in the early stages of open banking adoption. Many are developing strategies, launching APIs, and keeping an eye on the competitive landscape. But the overarching sentiment among the banking community executives interviewed for this report indicates the banks that are able to balance speed, innovation and strategic long-term decisions will win market share. 

“Not reacting rapidly enough to open banking could result in another party, either a competitor bank or fintech, innovating more quickly and eroding trust or relationships,” said Frank Tong, Head of Innovation and Strategic Investment at HSBC, in the report. 

The report also asserts regulation is brokering open banking innovation through collaboration with banks to develop the frameworks needed to move forward – not only in progressive markets like the U.K. and Singapore but around the world. 

“While regulation usually plays a ‘catch-up’ role when it comes to technology, our interviews revealed a fascinating trend of regulators setting the pace for banking innovation,” said Claire Beatty, Editor for MIT Technology Review Insights and one of the authors of the report. “We’re seeing a strong collaboration between governments, regulators, incumbent players and fintechs to ensure the right framework is developed to give customers greater control over their data and provide a more seamless financial services user experience.” 

The report reiterates competition and consumer demand continue to be key drivers to accelerate banking digitization. Fintechs can quickly deploy consumer services while consumers seek the ease and convenience they offer. In order for traditional financial institutions to remain competitive they have to embrace open banking and a collaborative strategy that allows them to build smarter, deeper, and more relevant digital experiences across the customer lifecycle. Banks must also overcome challenges such as coordinating open banking strategies locally and globally, managing the ongoing digital transformation of the front and back office, prioritizing API development and uniting and educating teams. 

“Open banking is no longer an option, but an inevitable reality,” said Sonny Singh, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Financial Services Global Business Unit. “Banks that tap into an expanding ecosystem of potential digital partners, embrace APIs and leverage cloud-ready solutions, will get ahead in the race to efficiently deliver a broad range of financial products and services to their customers.” 

For example, the process of designing customized APIs and exposing them for consumption can take between 12 to 24 months, depending on the complexity of the banks’ IT landscape. With a cloud-ready platform like Oracle Banking APIs, banks can tap into a prebuilt repository of more than 1,500 Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs. 

For the report, MIT Technology Review interviewed the following senior executives from around the world who are directly involved with open banking: Abhishek Seth, Head of Open Banking and API, APAC and EMEA, Global Consumer Technology, Citi; Frank Tong, Global Head of Innovation and Strategic Investment, HSBC; Gerard Florian, Chief Information Officer, ANZ; Deniz Güven, Global Head of Customer Experience, Standard Chartered Bank; Jason Bates, Co-Founder, 11:FS; Alex Weber, Head of International Markets, N26 Group; Derek White, Global Head of Customer Service, BBVA; and Tomofumi Watanabe, Joint General Manager, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group.

Central State University Enrolls Oracle Cloud to Help More Students Get Degrees


Press Release

Leading Ohio University first to deploy Oracle Student Management to reach, retain and foster the success of non-traditional learners

Redwood City, Calif—Sep 19, 2018

Central State University has selected Oracle Student Management to help increase degree attainment and open educational opportunity to all students. Part of the Oracle Student Cloud suite, the technology will empower Central State to better reach, enroll, and ensure the success of students in its upcoming Distance Learning Program. In addition, select Oracle University classes will be added to the program in Fall 2019 broadening the university’s curriculum with new 21st-century technology skills that will further prepare students for the modern workforce. 

Central State has an esteemed history of extending learning opportunities to diverse communities. Founded in 1887, Central State is one of 19 1890 Land-Grant institutions in the United States. Today, as an internationally growing university, it aims to be a premier institution with excellence in teaching and learning that embraces diversity and produces graduates with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to make valuable contributions in a global society. 

Central State realized that a modern technology approach was needed to reach more students and provide them the opportunity to learn on the time, schedule, and pace that best meets their unique needs and lifestyle. Oracle Student Management will play a critical role in helping the University not only attract new students to its Distance Learning program, but also provide the proactive intelligence needed to improve retention and success rates across the entire University. Central State also plans to add additional Oracle Cloud technologies over time to further improve operational efficiency and deliver an engaging, personalized student experience. 

“Increasing student enrollment, improving retention, and speeding time to a degree are core priorities for Central State,” said Dr. Cynthia Jackson- Hammond, President and Chief Executive Officer, Central State University. “We understand that every student is different and has pressures of work and life that often derail their path. With Oracle Student Management, we will be able to further reach and support those students through our upcoming Distance Learning Program, ensuring they achieve the degree they need to better their employment opportunities.” 

Enhancing the traditional capabilities of student information systems (SIS), Oracle Student Management helps transform the student experience with capabilities for recruiting, engagement, support, and management. Leveraging emerging technologies and built in automation, the offering delivers the insights universities need to anticipate student needs and monitor progress more proactively, illuminate the right path to better academic outcomes, and empower student success. The Oracle Student Cloud suite is designed to support a variety of business models, from a straightforward “pay to enroll” to managing complex academic requirements, providing the right footprint for each university’s unique needs. 

“Delivering both traditional and non-traditional academic programs effectively requires institutions to be more visionary and have the right solutions to execute that vision,” said Vivian Wong, Oracle’s group vice president of Higher Education Development. “Oracle is partnering with Central State on their Student Cloud journey, to ensure both the University and the students themselves have the advanced tools, touchpoints, and knowledge they need to advance degree achievement.” 

To further enhance Central State’s Distance Learning Program, new Oracle University classes will be added to the online course curriculum. As part of the Oracle Workforce Development Program (WDP), initial courses will center around advancing skills in Oracle Database, SQL and Java and will be available for workforce, government, military, corporate, and other non-traditional students.
