OOW 2013 speakers: maximize your selection chances

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 is approaching fast and the call for papers is now open: http://bit.ly/YbEURG (note that it will close on April 12th). Each year the event is growing larger and the paper selection process is becoming more and more competitive: many great submissions but only so many slots to fill! In the end this is for the better as this just raises the overall quality of the conference. It also means that you should pay extra attention when submitting your papers to ensure they get the attention they deserve.

Here are some tips to maximize your chances of selection:

  • We want to hear the voice of customers and end users above anything
    (i.e. if you are an Oracle partner or employee, try to co-present with a customer or at least secure their approval to use their name and specifics)
  • Focus on a specific problem or project and don't try to cover it all
    (vague and high-level abstracts with an endless laundry list of integrated systems tend to be eliminated first)
  • Provide specific details of the customer implementation
    (attendees want to learn something that will help them, not just listen to another fluffy marketing pitch. Integrated specific apps? Make sure to mention them.)
  • Provide concrete ROI metrics or other concrete measurement of the impact of the project (productivity, business, etc.)
  • Cover either a widespread problem or an innovative one with clear business impact
    (i.e. a clever rocket science project that dealt with an unusual project could make an interesting blog entry but probably not a great OOW session)
  • Touch upon one of the following topics that attract a lot of attention these days: 
    • Mobile enablement 
    • Fusion Applications integration 
    • Cloud integration
    • Deployment of SOA in virtualized environments (OVM)
    • B2B projects, especially replacement of legacy solutions (Sterling, Gentran, etc.)
    • Fast Data for innovative marketing or customer experience solutions

Hopefully this guidance will be useful. Feel free to comment and ask for more details.

I'm looking forward to your submissions and to seeing you in San Francisco in September!

Oracle SOA Suite, the Most Capable Tool for Every Possible Integration Challenge

session ID: CON8601 - when: Monday, Oct. 1, 10:45am-11:45am - where: Moscone South 102

"Oracle SOA Suite, the Most Capable Tool for Every Possible Integration Challenge" is the name of the session I will be delivering at Oracle OpenWorld this year. I'm usually going for more subdued titles but decided to remove the gloves this year, at the risk of sounding arrogant! While we have a number of worthy competitors in various areas of integration no one can really compete with the breadth and reliability of Oracle SOA Suite.


This session is primarily intended for people who are not yet familiar with Oracle SOA Suite (i.e. if you are an existing customer your time might be better spent at some of the other sessions we have on the topic).

I will provide an overview of Oracle SOA Suite, the customers using it and the types of challenges they are solving with it: from integrating Oracle Applications (E-Business Suite, Siebel, PeopleSoft, RightNow, Taleo etc.) to third-party applications (did you know that over a third of our customers actually use us to integrate SAP?), mainframes and a variety of technologies. We will talk about some emerging trends and problems that our users are solving with the product: cloud integration, B2B consolidation and mobile-enablement. I will also briefly touch upon the exciting projects we are doing with Oracle Event Processing, in the domain of "Fast Data" and "Big Data".

Last but not least, I will be joined on stage by Venktesh Maudgalya, Director at Electronic Arts. Venktesh will bring his customer perspective and explain how EA leveraged Oracle SOA Suite to implement iHub, the massive integration hub that interconnects all their applications (E-BusinessSuite, Hyperion, Demantra, Peoplesoft, Salesforce.com, Kronos, Teradata, GXS etc.) and carries 3/4 of their revenue flows.

I just picked up my badge and will be kicking off the festivities tomorrow talking to partners in a pre-OOW briefing at the Oracle Headquarters - see you next week!

PS: if you're going to tweet about Oracle SOA Suite next week please make sure to use the #oraclesoa and #oow hashtags so that we can track and amplify your tweets!
