A Year Online

Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

~ Franklin P. Jones

This blog's inaugural post was on April 10, 2006, so it officially turns one today.  It's hard to imagine that a year has zipped by already.  This is a good time to take stock and reflect.

In the past year:
  • We've published over 210 articles
  • Five other Applications insiders have been coaxed into joining our blogging team
  • We've had over 8.5 million reads (which utterly blows my mind)
Still on the Right Track?

If you've been along for the ride since the beginning, you might recall an early article that followed the tradition of the Hudson's Bay Company.  Before embarking on expeditions to parts unknown, Hudson's Bay Company voyageurs camped overnight within a half-day's walk from their starting point to assess whether they'd brought everything they needed.

Well, we're a long way from home now.  Probably a good time to stop and ensure that we're still headed in the right direction:
  1. Is this content useful for you?
  2. Is this content pitched at the right level of technical depth?
  3. Are there new areas that you'd like us to cover?
  4. Are there areas that you'd like us to revisit or cover more heavily?
  5. Do you have any other suggestions on how we can improve?
Not surprisingly, this blogging effort has taken more energy and time than any of us originally expected.  Your emails and feedback are always appreciated -- they give us encouragement to go on.

Comments:

This blog is absolutely incredible. It is a great one-stop-shop for finding out the latest in 11i/R12 technology and news. It is much easier to sort out and research when I stop here first!

Excellent blog. It's so useful to get useful information from real people at Oracle, rather than having to wade through Metalink and lots of dry notes. This blog arranges the bewildering volume of Oracle info into a really useful order. Also great to get up to date news about Oracle releases etc. Thanks for providing the service...

The rest of Oracle, and for that matter, the software industry needs to read and emulate this blog. The tone, content, and writing style are perfect. I view this as essential reading for anyone supporting E-Business Suite -- and it's nice that it's so well done!

1. Is this content useful for you?
Yes, it is very, very useful and fun to read too.

2. Is this content pitched at the right level of technical depth?
The content in this blogs is very informative, educational, and creditable. It saved some of my time to update my managers and customers because they can get some general public information directly from here. The content pitched at the right level for the different audiences. Technical depth? As an apps architect/DBA, of course, I would like to get as deep as I could get :).

3. Are there new areas that you'd like us to cover?
I would like you cover Oracle MAA architecture and would like to see an author from the Oracle MAA lab joining this blogs if that is feasible.

4. Are there areas that you'd like us to revisit or cover more heavily?
I would hope you cover 11i and AS10g integration more heavily.

5. Do you have any other suggestions on how we can improve?
May be have an on-line chat in a scheduled basis to talk with you?

You really demonstrated your in depth knowledge to Oracle products and dedication to serve Oracle customer community. That is well noticed and greatly appreciated.

Many, many thanks!
Jennifer.

Its really useful and keep us updated with what's happening in Oracle E-business world.... It would be great if you cover some more about Fusion Middleware and 10g RAC integration with Oracle Apps and High Availabity architecture...

Is this content useful for you?
Extremely!!!

Is this content pitched at the right level of technical depth?
Mostly. Some is a bit too technical for me as a Functional person, but I understand most of it and it is helpful to know of such a rich source of information.

Are there new areas that you'd like us to cover?
Boy do I wish I could find a blog with a similar style and level of detail on the Functional side of Oracle Applications!

Do you have any other suggestions on how we can improve?
No, just keep up the good work.

David.
