Washington, D.C. – July 1, 2009
Welcome to my first post on the innovation blog. I’m writing this from Washington, D.C. as we’re just about to launch the 11g release of Oracle Fusion Middleware. It’s been a long and sometimes crazy ride. But it’s great to see the story about this latest release finally unveiled to the world.
Just as this is the kickoff to the innovation blog, it’s also the kickoff of a 100-city tour to share the realities, key features and innovations in the Oracle Fusion Middleware product line. At 10am Eastern we start here in Washington, D.C. and from there the road show will cover at least ten more cities in July including London, Munich, Sydney, Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, Sao Paolo and Mexico City…to name a few.
Much of yesterday was spent on rehearsals, final checks on demonstrations and technical checks. We were all up early this morning, but it’s going to be a great event.
Oracle President Charles Phillips and Senior Vice President Thomas Kurian will be starting the show, with a tag-team keynote covering the overall strategy as well as key innovations and enhancements to a number of middleware products. Hope you can catch the keynote online—or better yet, in person if you’re in the greater Washington, D.C. area. Look for some interesting guest speakers to join them on stage. The venue is great and only a few blocks away from the White House. I haven’t been here since 1986, so it was nice to get a chance to walk around a bit last night between rehearsals and catching up on email. More soon.
