Hands-on-Lab: Keeping your Data Safe - Security for Cloud Databases

Richard Evans, Database Security Product Manager at Oracle

Sunday, April 19 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

This is a pre-register workshop and must be purchased through the Quest.  While the cloud vendor secures the infrastructure, and keeps the platform patched, you are still responsible for enforcing checks and balances, and securing your users and your data. Oracle Data Safe is a new cloud service that helps secure your databases in the Oracle Cloud. In this lab, you’ll get hands-on experience using Data Safe to assess configuration and user risks, and monitor user activity, all with just a few clicks. You will also classify your sensitive data, and mask sensitive data for test and development, all without any special security training or expertise. If you have an Oracle Database in the cloud, this hands-on lab may be the most important session you attend at Collaborate!

Maximize Your Software Licensing with OTBI for Financial Reporting

Kaushik Subramanian, Manager at Terillium

Tuesday, April 21 | 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Utilizing Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence, we were able to create a multi-layer report with drill down capabilities to match the FRS P&L report that was burst-out to many service locations. We were successfully able to limit access to the users based on segment security and only pull relevant P&L data so the end users would be able to successfully research where the monthly activity was coming from if that was a corporate journal entry or a payables invoice that was approved. Lastly, with all the data at their fingertips they would be able to see how their location was doing on a daily basis by reviewing this report as it is up to date at all time.

We recently utilized this approach with a leading LTL freight carrier headquartered in Dayton, Ohio. To keep their technology in line with their thriving business, the company recently decided to migrate from a legacy ERP to Oracle ERP Cloud.
