My sessions at ODTUG

For everyone who has been asking, here are the dates and times for the two presentations that I am giving at next month's ODTUG conference in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Securing Private Confidential Information is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, 2007 from 4:00-5:00 in Coquina B

Automated Scheduling and E-mailing from Within Discoverer—and More is scheduled for Thursday, June 21, 2007 from 11:00-12:00 in Coquina G

Are you going to ODTUG? If so, look me up.

By the way, here's the low down on the two papers:

Automated Scheduling and E-mailing from Within Discoverer:

Ever wanted to know how to schedule a Discoverer workbook and automatically e-mail it? Perhaps you are one of the hundreds of people who have asked this very question on the OTN forums. If so, your search is over. You'll be amazed at the simplicity of the approach and be ready to take it back to your office and try it for yourself. You will also learn how to set up Discoverer lists of values that comprise both an ID and a Description at the same time. This live demonstration of both Discoverer Administrator and Plus will show you how to create parameters that will accept an ID or a Description, yet still return the description to the user.

Securing Private Confidential Information:

Recent high-profile cases have highlighted the need for data such as social security numbers, dates of birth, and ethnicity to be protected. Have you considered securing your private and confidential information but decided it was too difficult? Using profiles and a VPD, you will see how to set up both row-based and column-based security. Using Discoverer, you will learn how to set up a mechanism to allow your support staff to connect to the database using the same profile as an end user, without the need to know the end user's password. Thus, you can set up a secure environment yet at the same time enable your support staff to help your users without the security breach of a disclosed password.
