Confluent Partnership

Confluent

Here at Rittman Mead, we are continually broadening the scope and expertise of our services to help our customers keep pace with today's ever-changing technology landscape. One significant change we have seen over the last few years is the increased adoption of data streaming. These solutions can help solve a variety of problems, from real-time data analytics to forming the entire backbone of an organisation's data architecture. We have worked with a number of different technologies that can enable this, however, we often see that Kafka ticks the most boxes.

This is reflected by some of the recent blog posts you will have seen like Tom Underhill hooking up his gaming console to Kafka and Paul Shilling’s piece on collating sailing data. Both these posts try and use day to day or real-world examples to demonstrate some of the concepts behind Kafka.

In conjunction with these, we have been involved in more serious proofs of concepts and project with clients involving Kafka, which no doubt we will write about in time. To help us further our knowledge and also immerse ourselves in the developer community we have decided to become Confluent partners. Confluent was founded by the people who initially developed Kafka at LinkedIn and provides a managed and supported version of Kafka through their platform.

We chose Confluent as we saw them as the driving force behind Kafka, plus the additions they are making to the platform such as the streaming API and KSQL are opening a lot of doors for how streamed data can be used.

We look forward to growing our knowledge and experience in this area and the possibilities that working with both Kafka and Confluent will bring us.

Hyperion Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.023 is Available

The Hyperion Product Management recently advised the release of Patch Set Updates (PSU) for Oracle Hyperion Essbase 11.1.2.4.x.

These PSU downloads are available from the  My Oracle Support > Patches & Updates section.

Hyperion Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.023

  • Patch 27397238:  HYPERION ESSBASE ADMINISTRATION SERVICES SERVER 11.1.2.4.023

  • Patch 27397244: HYPERION ESSBASE ADMIN SERVICES CONSOLE MSI 11.1.2.4.023

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Oracle recommends using the same version of all Essbase portfolio products (Essbase, Essbase Administration Services, Hyperion Provider Services, and Essbase Studio) and components (server, client, runtime client, API, and JAPI). When only some Essbase portfolio products are included in a patch release, the last released versions of the products that are not included in the patch are supported.

Provider Services 11.1.2.4.022 or 11.1.2.4.023, Essbase 11.1.2.4.022 or 11.1.2.4.023, and Essbase Studio 11.1.2.4.016 are supported for use with Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.023.

Recommendation: After you apply a patch within the same release codeline, Oracle recommends as a best practice that you export the data from your databases, clear the data from the databases, and then reload the data.

README FILE:
Refer to the Readme files prior to proceeding with these PSU implementations for important information that includes the supported paths per component, along with a full list of the defects fixed, additional support information, prerequisites, details for applying patch and troubleshooting FAQ's.

It is important to ensure that the requirements and support paths to this patch are met as outlined within the Readme file.
The Readme file is available from the Patches & Updates download screen for each of the Hyperion Essbase components.
