George Trujillo at Oracle Open World - Day Three
By George Trujillo on Sep 23, 2008
Really enjoying the conference. I'm cherry picking the presentations I've gone to and have really enjoyed the ones I've gone to. It just amazes me the level of complexity in Oracle environments and how much someone has to know. Yet at same time Oracle is telling everyone how easy it all is.
I've been involved in a lot of discusses on storage. Solid state, reducing latency, etc. It's going to be interesting. You can put more and more memory in a server and next generation of storage is going to reduce latency of disk access a lot.
Some interesting conversations of Quest software.
I really like how Oracle has set up the schedule builder and how well it works with helping you manage your schedule and stay clued into everything at OOW. Very large conference that I think has been extremely well managed. I do dislike the fact that you have to pay to go to conference and then have to pay to get the presentation slides.
The Oracle Aces and bloggers are two very cool groups to get involved with. Any get together with them is worth its weight in gold. Lots of interesting perspectives and views of the Oracle world. Going to the Oracle Aces dinner is always one of my highlights of conference. Today filled with lots of meetings. I'm always humbled by the amazing, hard working and driven people that make the Oracle environments work (DBAs, develpers, etc).
Users Groups at Oracle Open World
If you are new to the Oracle conference I highly recommend going to the Users Group Pavilion in Moscone West and visiting the Oracle users group booths. With todays' Oracle environments you should probably be joining multiple Oracle users groups. I am very impressed with the role of the Oracle users groups and the great volunteers that make these groups so awesome. Great job IOUG, OAUG, Quest and ODTUG (these are groups I'm involved with I don't mean to leave anyone out).
Oracle ACE Dinner
I thought the Oracle ACE dinner was a big success last night. Special thanks to Lillian Buziak and the Oracle ACE for continuing to build the Oracle user community through great events and groups like the Oracle ACE program. It was a great evening of sharing perspectives, ideas and experiences with some of the top Oracle technology leaders.
