Twitter Tuesday: Top 10 Tweets - December 2-8, 2014

Here they are: the Top 10 tweets from @OTNArchBeat for the last seven days (December 2-8, 2014).

If you're wondering why positions #1 and #2 are occupied by the same message, allow me to elucidate. Note that while the messages are the same, the #1 tweet was posted at 9pm EST on Dec 5, while the #2 tweet was posted at 9am EST on Dec 4. So, same message, different tweets, and different audiences -- that is, unless some people are spending way too much time on Twitter.

Podcast Show Notes: Customizing the Oracle EBS User Experience

The latest OTN ArchBeat series is a 3-part discussion of the various options for customizing the Oracle E-Business Suite user experience. The topic was suggested, and panel members selected, by Oracle ACE Monty Latiolais, who took on the guest producer role for this series. Here's how Monty pitched the idea to the panelists:

"The discussion [centers] around the different options EBS customers have to customize and tailor the EBS user experience. Some customers prefer Application Express, others are most productive using Excel. Still others prefer tradition Forms or Oracle Business Intelligence to work with their EBS data. We look to discuss the benefits of each option. No longer does EBS need to be a 'one size fits all' solution."

The Panelists

(Listed alphabetically)
  • Mark Clark: Founder and Senior Partner, O2Works; Board of Directors, OAUG
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn
  • Monty Latiolais: Senior Consultant, Insum Solutions; President, ODTUG

  • Joe Leva: Founder and President, V1.0 Systems, Inc; Board Member & Summit Conference Chair, Oracle Business Intelligence Warehousing and Analytics SIG
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn
  • Tiffany Newkirk: Solutions Specialist, Excel4apps
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1: APEX? Forms? OBI? Excel? The panel debates the relative merits of various solutions for customizing the Oracle EBS user experience
  • Listen to Part 2: Each member of the expert panel lays out a scenario in which theirs is the ideal solution for customizing the Oracle EBS user experience.
  • Listen to Part 3: Members of the expert panel make final arguments for their respective solutions for customizing the Oracle EBS user experience.
