The Oracle announcement to purchase Sun Microsystems makes the IOUG Collaborate 09 Conference (May 3-7 2009, Orlando FL) a very hot ticket. The IOUG conference will bring together the top Oracle technology leaders in the user community. You can expect a lot of great discussions and interactions discussing the potential of the Oracle acquisition with Sun within the Oracle user community.
Oracle and Sun employees cannot discuss the potential of this acquisition, however the top industry leaders in the Oracle user community and Oracle 3rd party vendors and partners will definitely be discussing this interesting news.
The IOUG is the largest Oracle user technology user group in the world. Whenever you bring the top Oracle technology leaders in the user community you can expect a lot of discussion and interaction between these leaders. I don't think I've ever gotten more voice mails and emails in one day. So the buzz is definitely at the highest level.
This will definitely make the Collaborate 09 conference in Orlando a very dynamic week among the Oracle user community. The Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) can be a very strong resource to the Sun Microsystems community. The IOUG focuses on the technology side of Oracle.
So when you look at some of these areas of the IOUG you can see why the IOUG Collaborate 09 conference just got a lot more exciting:
- Operating systems, security, storage and all technology components surrounding the Oracle Database Server
- Oracle Database Server - RAC, Data Guard, Streams, High Availability, Performance Tuning and Backup/Recovery
- Oracle Fusion Middleware - Java, BPEL, SOA, Web Services, XML, application servers.
- Identity Management
