Downloaded siebelhub library published by @lex and had a look at the code. It is fantastic piece of coding with modularized code and well-structured functions. It also helps in understanding basic JavaScript concepts required for Siebel OpenUI development. The best part was the way to dynamically attach custom functions with PM events such as Field Change or Record Change.  This concept can help us develop truly global functionalities without needing the use of individual PM & PR’s for applets or views.  I used to this to develop a really useful functionality of favorite records.

I am pretty sure almost everybody connected to IT in anyway must have heard the term Big Data. Now, before you close the article thinking it doesn’t have to do anything with Siebel, STOP. What I have realized in my new stint is that technology is changing too fast. If you confine yourself with just one skill, you will soon become dinosaur of the IT world and that means that you well on your way to become extinct.
