What should strategic CIOs focus on in 2013? (OracleVoice on Forbes)

A challenging question. One that deserves both reflection and action.  Bob Evans writes a fantastic article on OracleVoice on Forbes.   

Bob highlights customer intelligence and customer needs' analysis.  Most importantly, Bob identifies four threats that CIO's should take heed.

"As a result, the coming year will see intense CIO involvement in optimizing customer experiences, exploiting analytics, transforming Big Data to Big Opportunities, accelerating all facets of enterprise execution, mainstreaming social capabilities, and enabling co-creation of value with customers."

The full article here.

Happy New Year

Oracle Twitter List

When I speak to customers and educate them on the variety of support communities that exist, Twitter is an untapped resource by the Oracle masses.  Recently, I was in a room of over 60+ customers, none of which had a twitter account nor follow any of the Oracle Tweeters from Oracle.

Until the OracleWiki is back, I've compiled a list that should get you started. I didn't include just anyone that tweets on Oracle, just those from our major product lines and lines of business. I added some of the usergroups too.

Embrace Twitter.  It will help you filter information to the Oracle products, services and events that are of interest to you.
