George Trujillo at Oracle Open World - Day Four
By George Trujillo on Sep 24, 2008
Today started with an IOUG board meeting. The directions and the activities of the IOUG Oracle's users groups at Oracle Open World are very exciting.
Today there are a lot of meetings on the Oracle Beta program and Oracle Fusion Middleware. Meeting with senior Oracle product leaders in the different Oracle products has been invaluable.
I can't remember when I've seen the energy and enthusiasm higher at an Oracle conference. Everyone is fired up on the new products coming out of Oracle. There is going to be a lot of new business in the Oracle community and money made in the next few years related to Oracle Fusion Middleware, BI, Hyperion, Stellant, Essbase, etc. I think everyone smells money and opportunity and its more energizing than the oxygen that gets pumped into the systems in Vegas. :)
Larry Ellison's keynote is going to be the buzz of all afternoon and evening events.
Later this evening there is the IOUG Appreciation party and the big event at Treasure Island.
