AIB - Allied Irish Banks - Upgrade Success

AIB LogoJust a quick note on Allied Irish Banks (AIB), a customer colleagues and I did work with on their upgrade and migration to Oracle Database 11.2  They've done a tremendous job and finally were present at OOW 2012 in San Francisco. Mina, my presales colleague from Oracle Ireland, gave me heads up about the short videos they've produced in SF with the AIB folks now being available on o.com.

Mile High ... Collaborate 2013 in Denver

Collaborate 2013 is almost over - we are running our final Hands-On-Lab session right now in the Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. For those seeking for the Hands-On-Lab Instructions for our session please be patient until Oracle Database 12c gets released. As soon as this happens we'll offer you the HOL Instructions plus many more information about Oracle Database 12c and the different upgrade and migration paths.

Denver apparently has become my no.3 US city - not only because the mountains are so close by. But the city itself is really worth a visit :-) Please find some impressions below :-) And see you next year at Collaborate 2014 on April 7-11 in Las Vegas.


Yes, again SNOW in Denver ... well ...

Long time no update ...

I deeply apologize for not updating the blog for some weeks now. I'm still working for Oracle, still in the same group - but due to some other things going on in preparation for Oracle Database 12c I had either no time or simply nothing to report at the moment. I didn't want to bore you with Oracle Database 11.2 stuff as the slides don't get changed right now. Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 patchset should be available sometime in early summer with a good bunch of fixes included.

Roy and me had delivered the first internal only Upgrade, Migrate and Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c workshops in Redwood Shores and Colorado Springs mainly to Support and Development colleagues. That was great fun as we did include 3 nice parts for hands-on as well. And we've got so much good and valuable feedback.

In the near future Roy will come over to Europe and end of April we'll deliver the workshop again in Paris, Munich and Reading. South Africa will follow in May - and maybe Orlando in the US. As soon as Oracle Database 12c will get released we'll be ready to go for customer workshops as well. So stay tuned for upcoming dates and events.

PS: This happens when you'd like to fly back home from Denver, Colorado, in late March ...now I know what a Blizzard feels like ... and the picture isn't blurry ... it's simply PLENTY of snow ...
