It is a new Oracle Open World this year, and it has been new for the past few years because of the acquisitions from Oracle on many many companies with multiple products.
This year is Sun and and the main topics are “cloud”, virtualization and last but not least Release 12. I’ve been into 2 sessions, one co-presenting with James Utz and Karen Kerames on the Planning for the R12 upgrade and yesterday my presentation with more than 100 people attending the success story of ITC and our R12 upgrade. Both sessions were very popular and that is because many organizations are either planning or executing the upgrade and there are many questions and concerns on thee best approach to plan and execute this upgrade.
On the other hand and, based on the concepts that were brough up by Larry Elisson during, the keynote, IT Convergence was presented as a success story among Oracle clients for it success on the use a of virtualization and Oracle Enterprise Linux. I’ll be co-presenting on Wednesday with some oracle folks our case.
I was also invited by several media people to talk to them in order to have more insights on this new technology and field that Oracle is starting to growth.I’ll be working on more entries but this is definitely a big show and the content and strategy from Oracle is a must for IT executives and those who are on Oracle OpenWorld.
