"On Monday the Oracle Enterprise Architecture Executive Summit 2010 will take place. Personally, I’m really looking forward to this. I believe that Enterprise Architecture can be a strong facilitator of change within the organization, as long as it’s really focused as Enterprise Architecture, instead if Enterprise IT Architecture. (Two completely different approaches, but too often mistaken for one and another.) Especially the breakout sessions about Enterprise Architecture and Business – IT Alignment look promising." -- Oracle ACE Douwe Pieter van den Bos
"BI Publisher has always had the ability to create reports using multiple data sets, either through appending queries together or by combining them using something called a “data template”. Data Templates were tricky to set up though, so I was interested when looking through the new features in BI Publisher 11g to note that creating these types of queries is now a lot more straightforward." -- Oracle ACE Director Mark Rittman
