Oracle CEP at Oracle OpenWorld 2009
By seth.white on Oct 13, 2009
Today is day three of Oracle OpenWorld 2009. It's a huge conference again this year. I haven't heard official statistics on the number of attendees yet. The keynotes today and yesterday have really stressed the benefits of integration between Oracle's many products. My favorite demo was the fast fashion retail demo during the keynote on Monday. The amount of industry-specific knowledge that the presenters displayed was impressive. The Dell portion of the keynote today was also quite good. The CIO from Dell gave some compelling examples of the efficiencies and cost savings that they have achieved by using virtualization technology in their data centers.
There are a number of things happening at OpenWorld that are related to CEP. We have a couple good demos running at the CEP booth in the DEMOgrounds. For example, one of the demos uses CEP to track shoppers in a shopping mall that have signed up for a service which provides them with special deals and electronic coupons when they approach a particular store in the mall. The demo shows off the use of Oracle Spatial and CEP together. If you are interested in CEP please stop by the booth -- it is located in Moscone West -- booth 99 -- in the northwest corner of the show floor.
At 1 p.m. today there will be an Oracle CEP hands-on lab held at the Hilton Hotel. The room is Continental Ballroom 5. The lab will last for approximately 1 hour and give participants a chance to develop a running CEP application.
At 4 p.m. today there is a general session on CEP that will take place at the Westin Hotel.
