Walter Blood, Walter Brengel, and Mark Derwin will impart best practices to attendees about the following topics:
Business View Basics
If you have synonyms for your raw data tables and want to limit the scope for your queries, Business Views might be for you. We will show how to create a Business View by adding folders to your synonym/MASTER, so end users will only see what you want them to see.
Mark Derwin's name has become synonymous with WebFOCUS Maintain -- he'll be doing a quick 10 minute intro.
MATCH – the other JOIN
When you need to connect different data sources together, JOIN, using the nested loop processing paradigm, is available for use. But you also have another connection language – MATCH – based on the sort-merge paradigm, that offers extensive connection functionality including hierarchical file outputs. This session will review and demonstrate the power of MATCH.
