Welcome to Rod West

I am delighted to be able to let you know that Rod West, a prolific answerer of questions on the OTN Discoverer Forum, will be joining me as a co-author on this blog.

Rod has been using Oracle databases since 1985 and is principal consultant at Cabot Consulting in the United Kingdom. He specializes in Oracle Applications 11i / 12i as well as Oracle Discoverer. Rod can be contacted at rodwest@cabotconsulting.co.uk

Rod has also submitted two white papers, both of which are available for immediate download from my website by clicking here

The papers are as follows:

  • Scheduling through concurrent manager - this paper describes how Oracle Applications Concurrent Processing can be used to schedule Discoverer workbooks
  • Using VPD to secure Discoverer reports - this article uses a series of examples to demonstrate how VPD can be used to secure Discoverer reports. The examples have been written with Discoverer in mind but VPD is a database centric approach and so can be applied to any reporting tool
