OOW15 – More than 12 more on 12c


I talked about this a lot on the run up to OOW, and my 2 minute Top Tech Tip video was one of the top 10 in the weeks leading unto OOW 12 on 12c, and OTN commissioned an Oracle Profit article on some ACE speakers of which this was first, so I did feel we had a lot to live up to, especially as last year’s was so successful.

OOW 2015 Roundup – Work in Progress

OOW 2015 – Blog Post

As ever I am slow to get the blog posts out, but in my defence you are more likely to read these with all the others already out.

PaaS4SaaS – Marketing v Adoption and catching that Wave
