Presentation: Getting Started with Oracle Fusion Middleware by George Trujillo
S301218 Sunday 09/21/2008 8:30 - 10:00 a.m. Moscone West Room 2005
I'll be presenting at Oracle Open World (OOW) again this year. OOW just keeps getting bigger and better every year. I've heard they are expecting around 40,000 this year. The conference is from September 21 - 25, 2008 at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco. I'm very fortunate to get the opportunity to open and close the conference. My two presentations are in:
- Getting Started with Oracle Fusion Middleware (Sunday September 21, 2008 8:30 - 10:30am)
- Demystifying Oracle Fusion Middleware (Thursday September 25, 2008 13:30 - 14:30pm)
It's going to be a great networking opportunity. Throughout the week I will be meeting with Senior Oracle managers in the server and middle-tier technology areas. I will also be meeting with leaders from the IOUG, OAUG, Quest and attending Sun Microsystems events. Getting involved with user groups is one of the best things you can do do further your career in terms of getting into the information stream of industry leaders as well as getting great networking opportunities.
Key areas for me include:
- Getting the latest information on the BEA integration into Oracle Fusion.
- Interacting with attendees and seeing what their current challenges are related to Oracle Server technology. The Oracle DBA is working in an ever increasing level of complexity when it comes to database servers. Having the typical administration, tuning and backup and recovery skills is no longer sufficient. Having additional skills in RAC, Data Guard, Streams, Enterprise Manager and storage are very important for production DBAs. Yet, at the same time DBAs have to start increasing their skills in getting ready for a new level of management of Oracle applications and the upcoming Oracle Fusion applications.
- Finding out exactly where we are with Oracle 11g Release 2. The Release 2 of a major version of Oracle has always been the target platform most organizations move to. As always we can expect a significant amount of enhancements to Oracle 11gR1 as well a new features in the Oracle 11gR2.
I hope to see you there!
