First post on the new home of Oracle blogs and boy, a lot has been happening in the last couple of weeks.
Oracle Australia/New Zealand Sales Kick-Off - a look back over the last 12 months and a look ahead to the next 12 months across the three lines of business; Database, Fusion Middleware and Applications.
A few days of planning what Fusion Middleware Sales Consulting should look like in Australia and New Zealand. Who makes up the leadership group, how we mix the skills and abilities of this new merged team.
We publicly launched the Fusion Middleware Roadmap. It was a 2am gig for an Australian audience, so we' made sure it was recorded. You can find the replay Matt Bai columnist and "non-blogger" (his words) from the New York Times, Mark Textor from Crosby Textor, Annabel Crabb of The Sydney Morning Herald, Peter Black from QUT (get that blog going again Peter). Sitting members Joe Hockey, Kate Lundy and Andrew Bartlett who to his enormous credit joined us on his last day as a Senator - and has a proper blog, not just a member for so-and-so website for press releases. This group was topped with everyone's favourite election analyst, Anthony Green from the ABC.
I gave two presentations on Next Generation Grid Enabled SOA at the Gartner Application Development Integration and Web Services (ADIWS) conference in Sydney - taking some of Dave Chappell's excellent work and spinning it for an Australian audience. Slides are available here on slideshare, and I'll be posting more of my presentation work on slideshare over the next few weeks and months.
And I migrated by blog to here. So, forward motion is everything. As Walt said, "keep moving forward". Check back soon for an update or take a moment to grab my rss feed and plug it in to your aggregator of choice.
