I had the honor of presenting at the September 2009 user group in the Hyperion track for those who attended the Ohio Valley Oracle Application User Group in Louisville. The presentation focused on Maxl best practices, and how to integrate the results of maxl into other technologies. The presentation was driven from a project completed late last year. A recent client spent a tremendous amount of time verifying the results of daily and monthly processes.
Adding some consistency in the Maxl scripting, I integrated the results of the scripts, including the error and process logs, with .NET to produce a website that summarized the state of nearly 50 processes. Administrators were able to view a web page that showed real time status of all their applications, including links to error logs. The increased productivity of the administrative staff created a positive ROI in the first month of use.
