Who Needs Airplanes? 2 Great Events Delivered to Your Desk
By user742451 on Jul 10, 2009
Everyone has tight travel budgets these days. So events are getting easier to attend from your desk. This week I came across 2 excellent events with no travel required.
The first event is Oracle’s FY10 Partner Kickoff. This is a pretty cool opportunity for Oracle Partners to get in sync with Oracle heading into the new fiscal year. There are sessions hosted by all the top executives from around Oracle. You can learn the latest on Oracle product strategy across the entire portfolio as well as in areas like Cloud Computing. Check out my session titled “Oracle Software as a Service (SaaS) for ISVs” where I provide detail on the new SaaS for ISVs model. Visit the Oracle PartnerNetwork to access the event.
Here is a quick video describing the event from Judson Althoff, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Alliances & Channels at Oracle.
The second event is actually one that happened June 9-10 of this year in Amsterdam. It is the SIIA OnDemand Europe 2009 event. All of the presentations at the event were videotaped and are now available ondemand for free. My session was titled “Building Confidence in the Cloud” and after a 10 minute presentation I was joined on a panel by Dr. Werner Vogels who is the CTO at Amazon.com.
