Oracle ACEs Rule

Guest Author

Man, there are some happy Oracle ACEs out


Let's start with Andrew Clarke, one of the

"original" ACEs, who blogged about "On

Becoming an ACE"
recently. As Andrew remarks, the perks may

not be "that great," but the community recognition is "priceless".

(Personally, I consider the Oracle ACE fleece pullover to be among the

most remarkable pieces of corporate swag ever foisted upon the


Lewis Cunningham - who has a new tech

about using SQL Developer reporting capabilities on

OTN, BTW - takes

the cake
though. What a great post!


could be more gratifying than to see members of the Oracle community

like Lewis, who work so hard to "give back" to that community, rewarded

in some meaningful way for their efforts? This is what being the member

of a community is all about!

Remember, when you see

the next

to a byline, blog listing, or Discussion Forum handle on OTN, keep in

mind that you are encountering a highly valued member of the Oracle

community. If you know other people who deserve that recognition, be

sure to let

us know

    I'm working with the Department of Human Services, and have come across a unique database requirement. Of all the solutions you offer, you do not mention anything on Human Services and statistics.! NDHS is looking for a program to accumulate data on the population served by Emergency or Homeless Shelters, Juvenile Crime, Adoption Services, Domestic Violence, and City funded Counseling. Then, these statistics will be used to apply for Federal Grants, tracking individuals through the programs, chronic reoccurrences, peaks, trend lines, etc.
    The program would have to handle large amounts of data, contain a GUI, of user friendly data entry interface, and handle a variety of reports. And since this is a government facility, need I mention cost is an important factor? So, what do you think? Is Oracle the right fit?

    When I nominate someone as an Oracle ACE, will I be informed whether the nomination has been successful or not?
