25 Point plan and Cloud - 2 years later a lookback!

It has been around 2 years since 25 point plan was boldly published by Vivek Kundra and heavily embraced by all tech companies (google 25 point plan and any big company name -you will find a white paper!). I want to spend this writeup in looking back on what has worked, what has completely not worked and what is somewhat working. So, first let us see what worked? I would argue and say almost nothing earthshaking has really happened in terms of how IT works inside agencies. While some agencies have started the consolidated path - this essentially is a "shell" game - moving servers from one location to another without really driving efficiencies. There still exists a sense of lack of trust to make data sit in a shared environment. Even in agencies where there is strong leadership backing - the SIs that are native to the account are not necessarily in bleeding edge of cloud computing.

Oracle's 5th Annual Fed Forum - October 18th 2011 in Washington D.C

A great opportunity for those of us living in the D.C Metro area that didn't have a chance to visit Oracle Openworld in San Francisco to hear about all the product launches that were announced. Oracle Fedral Forum in Washington D.C is on October 18th,2011 and will be at the Renaissance Marriott in downtown. It is free to attend and all you need to do is to register by following the link.

Cloud has it's own track and has 3 very interesting sessions.

The first Session "The Foundations of the Application Cloud in a Box - Exalogic" is being delivered by Mohamed Afshar, VP Oracle's Middleware product management. This session will focus on the benefits of a pre-engineered private cloud solution.

The second session should be very interesting - given Oracle's announcement of it's public cloud in Openworld. It is jointly delivered by Mike Hichwa, who oversees Oracle's Database Cloud offering and Ajay Patel, who oversees Oracle's Java Cloud offering.

The final session in cloud is about " Building Cloud Right" and is jointly delivered by Sushil Kumar, who manages Product Management for Oracle Enterprise Manager and Sergio Leunissen from our OVM PM team.

There will be other sessions that will highlight Oracle Unbreakable Data Appliance , Exalytics and Oracle Big Data Appliance.
