Conference "Future of Oracle Forms"

I got an invitation to an interesting conference in the netherlands next week (May 15th 2012).

AMIS in the netherlands is the initiator of the conference and host, too.

The conference is splitted into two parts. From 9 to 5 we will hear many presentations from the top speakers in europe. Francois Degrelle, Wilfried van der Deijl, Mia Urman and many others are on the list. In the evening we can use our own notebook to participate in hands-on-sessions!

That will be a good chance, to hear and see, what can be done to modernize your Oracle Forms.

That is the essential part of the yesterday's "Statement of Direction for Forms, Reports and Designer".

"We are planning to release Oracle Reports 12c as part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c". This is the important sentence in the reports-section of "Oracle's Product Strategy".
