Podcast Show Notes: ODTUG Kscope 2014: Anatomy of a User Conference

The idea for this three-part OTN Archbeat Podcast series started out as a wrap-up of ODTUG Kscope 2014, featuring a panel comprised of people behind the event -- all members of the Oracle ACE Program. As you'll hear, the conversation goes well beyond a wrap-up to include a discussion about the importance of user groups and user group-sponsored conferences, and the critical importance of community in general. Considering the personalities of the panelists, that conversation couldn't help but be lively, frank, and informative. Listen for yourself.

The Panelists

(Listed alphabetically)
  • Danny Bryant: Senior IT Manager, City of Atlanta; Kscope 2014 Abstract Review Committee
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn
  • Chet "ORACLENERD" Justice: Senior OBIEE Consultant, BI Wizards; ODTUG Content Chair
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn
  • Cameron Lackpour: Oracle EPM Consultant, CLSolve; ODTUG Director
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn
  • Debra Lilley: Independent Oracle Consultant; Board Member, UKOUG; Executive Member, IOUC
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn
  • Mike Riley: Project Manager/ DBA, Hortica Insurance; ODTUG KScope 2014 Co-Chair
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1: Members of the team of behind Kscope 2014 share insight on the conference and discuss dominant themes and hallway memes.
  • Listen to Part 2: What were the hot sessions at Kscope 2014? The panelists share their perspectives.
  • Listen to Part 3: There is more to a great user conference than a shared interest in Oracle products. The panel discusses the nature and importance of community.

Podcast Show Notes: Cloud on the Street: Evolving Conversations

The latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast series features a conversation about conversations about Cloud Computing.

Need an explanation? OK.

Three of the four panelists for this discussion were directly involved in the planning and execution of the Cloud Computing track at Collaborate 2014, the conference held in Las Vegas this past April under the auspices of the International Oracle User Group, the Oracle Applications User Group, and Quest.

The fourth panelist is an expert in cloud computing who presented at Collaborate, though his presentation on engineered systems was not part of the cloud track.

I pulled these four people together for this panel discussion because I wanted to hear from them about the conversations that took place in and around the Collaborate cloud computing track in order to get a sense of what members of the Oracle community are talking about when they talk about cloud computing. The insight from the panelists offers a great snapshot of the street-level reality of cloud computing. And the reality is that despite some lingering misperceptions, cloud is indeed a reality.

Listen for yourself.

The Panelists

(Listed alphabetically)
  • Ron Batra, an Oracle ACE Director, is product director for Cloud Computing at AT&T, and was the Chairman of the Cloud track at Collaborate 2014.
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director
  • Kelly Goetsch a product manager for the Oracle Fusion Middleware Cloud Application Foundation, is the author of eCommerce in the Cloud published in April by O'Reilly Media [Read a sample chapter]. Kelly was a presenter at Collaborate 2014.
    Twitter LinkedIn
  • Basheer Khan, an Oracle ACE Director, is an IT architect and the principal at Knex Technology. Basheer was a presenter in the Collaborate 2014 Cloud track.
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn Oracle ACE Director
  • Steve Lemme is Director of Partner Enablement at Oracle, and he's one of the founders of the IOUG Cloud Special Interest Group, the group behind the Collaborate 2014 Cloud track.
    Twitter Blog LinkedIn

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1: Organizers of the Cloud Computing Track at Collaborate 2014 discuss the evolving maturity of questions, conversations, and presentations about Cloud.
  • Listen to Part 2: Cloud awareness and understanding has matured, but some questions and confusion remain among those coming late to the cloud party.
  • Listen to Part 3: Is the Cloud hype cycle over? Real world experience suggests that the hype wasn't hype.
  • Listen to Part 4: Cloud represents a new way to do IT. But will it become the only way to do IT?
  • Listen to Part 5: Looking to the future: anticipating cloud conversations at Oracle Open World.

A Noteworthy Change

Each program in the OTN ArchBeat Podcast consists of a multipart series. The original panel discussion for each program runs about 30 minutes, and is then cut into shorter segments for listener convenience, typically 6-10 minutes each. Since the podcast's launch in 2009 the individual segments in each series have been released on a weekly basis. Starting with this series, I'm releasing all segments at once. So now you can binge-listen to the entire series, or spread the segments out on your own schedule. Let me know what you think of this new strategy.

Thanks, Listeners! OTN ArchBeat Podcast is #1!

The OTN ArchBeat Podcast has been around since March of 2009, featuring conversations with members of the OTN architect community. Since that launch the podcast has produced 229 individual programs. While the podcast has generally fared well among the 25 Oracle podcasts, over the last year or so the audience has built to the point that in August 2013 the podcast hit a new and remarkable milestone. I'm very happy to announce that for the month of August the OTN ArchBeat Podcast was the most downloaded of all Oracle podcasts. Here are the top 10 Oracle podcasts for August, based on the aggregate number of downloads.

  1. OTN ArchBeat Podcast
  2. Oracle Database PodCasts
  3. Oracle's AppCasts
  4. Oracle Fusion Middleware Podcasts
  5. Oracle Magazine Podcast
  6. Oracle Technology Network TechCasts
  7. Oracle Author Podcasts
  8. Oracle Sun Servers and Storage Podcasts
  9. Meet The MySQL Experts

The OTN ArchBeat Podcast would not be possible without the cooperation, insight, and expertise of a small army of panelists who have participated in the conversations over the past four years. Panels for the various discussions almost always include members of the Oracle ACE program, along with subject matter experts from within Oracle, and the occasional outside expert. Compiling a complete list of all the panelists would take more time than I have, but their participation has driven the conversations, and those conversations have driven the success of the podcast. For that I am enormously grateful.

But of course all that effort and expertise would go to waste if no one was listening. So I am especially grateful for the people who download the programs. Thanks for listening. I hope you will continue to do so.
