EVENT RECAP: Oracle Day & Product Fair - Ft. Lauderdale

Are you attending any of the Oracle Days and other Events? They are fantastic!  Keep track of the Oracle Events by following @OracleEvents on Twitter.  Also, stay in the know by subscribing to one of the several Oracle Newsletters. Those will also keep you posted of upcoming in-person and webcast events.

Today, I had the opportunity to participate in the Oracle Day & Product Fair in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida  Thanks to those who stopped by to ask your support questions and watched me demo My Oracle Support features and best practices. (Bob Stanoch, Sales Consulting Manager giving the 2nd keynote address on Exadata below)

It was a pleasant surprise to run into my former Oracle colleague Josh Tieso.  Josh (pictured right) is Sr. Oracle DBA at United Healthcare. He used to work for Oracle Support years ago but for the last 6 years at UHC. Josh is a member of the ERP DBA team, working with Exalogic, Oracle ERP R12, & RAC.

Along the exhibit/vendor row, I met with Marco Gangano, National Sales Manager at Mythics. It was great getting to meet Marco and I look forward to working with his company with regards to Support Best Practices.

In addition, Lissette Paez (left) was representing TAM Training.  TAM Training is an Oracle University, award-winning training partner.  They cover training across the scope of Oracle products with 7 facilities in the U.S.  Lissette and I have done a couple of these Oracle Days before.  It's great to see familiar faces. 

A little while ago, I was down in this area to work with Citrix with an onsite session on Support Best Practices.  Pablo Leon and Alberto Gonzalez (right)came to chat with me over at the Support booth. 
They wanted to know when I was giving my session. 
Unfortunately, not this time guys. I'm on booth duty only.
Keep in touch.

Many thanks to our sponsors: BIAS, Cloudera, Intel and TekStream Solutions.

Come attend one of the many Oracle Days & other events planned for you.
