Getting Started with DRM
Jordan Wilcox,
TopDown Consulting

Oracle describes Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management (DRM) as an application that “…helps proactively manage changes in master data across operational, analytical, and enterprise performance management silos.” The description goes on to outline what users can do and the likely results, but it never tells you how to get DRM to do all of this great stuff and deliver results that will make your boss happy. This webcast is a practical guide that walks through how to quickly get started with DRM. It will show you how to create and configure a DRM application for managing and loading metadata. The webcast will also include tips, tricks, and gotchas to help you avoid pitfalls and get up and running on DRM in no time.

Better Together: Building Great iOS and Android Apps with Oracle APEX and Oracle MAF
Frederic Desbiens, 
Oracle Corporation

Oracle Application Express (APEX) is a great tool for building mobile web applications; however, it is not possible to run those applications in offline mode on a phone or tablet. Thus, to build on-device iOS and Android applications, Oracle offers the Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF). In this session, you will learn how to leverage PL/SQL and APEX applications from Oracle MAF. Specifically, you will see how to call PL/SQL logic through web services and how to integrate remote APEX mobile webpages.
