Oracle Open World (Oracle OpenWorld)

I will be speaking at OOW this year on two topics.

How to Hack an Oracle Application Express Application

If you write HTML applications in any technology and you care about your data, this presentation is for you. All HTML applications share some attributes that expose them to potential hacking. APEX has many features that will allow developers to lock down their applications – or to expose them to hacking. I will show techniques that can be used to hack HTML applications, how to close these holes within APEX and where APEX may expose these holes through its wizards. Naturally, I will show how to protect against any hack that I demonstrate. This session can benefit the novice to the highly advanced APEX developer as well as developers of any HTML application.

This is a skinnied down version of the module that C2 Consulting teaches in its Application Express classes.

Realizing ROI with Application Express

As part of Massachusetts healthcare reform, C2 Consulting worked with Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare (HPHC) to develop a new business process for providing health insurance directly to the subscriber. Utilizing Oracle Application Express, the HPHC system allows individuals to apply, enroll and be confirmed in a healthcare plan online in just a few minutes. Developed in just one month, the project cost will be recovered in just one year's saved postage.
