The Oracle community convenes at the various events, SIG-meetings and gatherings that are organized by the national Oracle User Group organizations. This is, for my reckoning, one if the most important parts of the power of the Oracle user community.
During these events, local Oracle stars are joined by the travelling Rock Stars of the Oracle Tech community, together they share knowledge and experience to teach and learn about the tricks of the trace. As (more...)
I don’t have an official OOW presentation in the conference this year. However, I am presenting a session at the Oak Table World 2015 event behind held concurrently with OOW 2015. My topic is “Exadata Database Machine Security” and I plan to review some of the newest updates to security for the Exadata Database Machine engineered system.
As the website indicates, the event is completely free and there is no pre-registration or enrollment required–just show (more...)
We’re a shade under a month away from the biggest event in the calendar for those that work in the Oracle marketplace – the Oracle OpenWorld Conference.
It runs every year in San Francisco and draws a massive 60,000 attendees from 145 countries (plus 2.1 million online attendees). That’s huge.
There are more than 2,500 sessions from ~3,600 speakers, approximately half of which are customers/partners and half are Oracle themselves. As well as the sessions there are (more...)
Here is how big it was in 2013. Compare it to its size in 2012. It is safe to assume that it will be bigger in 2014!
I will attend this year’s event by invitation from the Oracle ACE Program. Prior to the start of the conference, I will be attending a two day product briefing with product teams at Oracle HQ. It’s like a mini OpenWorld but only for Oracle ACE Directors.
During the (more...)

This years visit to Oracle Open World is for me the best of both worlds. First of all I get to attend one of the biggest, if not the biggest, IT conferences in the world. Second, I have two presentations. Both are on Sunday afternoon. The first one is a (more...)
This year the slogan is ... "Engineered for Innovation" According to the slogan is the kind of surprise Larry Ellison will have prepared for the Oracle community, so if you have some intuition and track the recent history of Oracle you may guess what the surprise from the big boss is about.
Larry Ellison entered in his own personal style, and the first phrase that he pronounced gave the guideline to what this was about ... he said "Sometime back when we bought Sun the customers said that Oracle was already into the hardware business, but we didn't receive the memo" ... referring (more...)
Oracle Open World Day 0. Arrival to SFO.
Visiting the Oracle Open World in my personal experience is the opportunity to meet with peers, networking, updating knowledge, interact with people, meet the gurus, and have fun. My OOW started on Saturday, and the visit to the holy Oracle Headquarters is a must for me. It's the reminder of the long journey I've walked so far along with the company.
The temparature was nice, a typical autum californian day, beautiful, I love this weather. However, you never know, I remember some years back San Francisco had a severe cold front that (more...)
A quick post… which is a bit interesting…
As I was searching for Exadata viewlets in Oracle By Example portal (http://goo.gl/HjshR) I clicked on the “Advanced Search”
and then filtered by Product Family (Database) and then by Product…
to my surprise there was an option for “Database 12g”….
oh well.. I checked on the Lifetime Support Policy (http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-support-technology-069183.pdf) and looking at the release dates
it could be possible that they will release the new version anytime this year..
could be in Oracle Open World 2011? hmmm…
