E-Business Suite Techstack Highlights at OpenWorld 2010

OpenWorld 2010 San Francisco is just around the corner.  We have a very full lineup of E-Business Suite technology stack-related sessions this year.  If you're going to be joining us at the conference, we've published a summary of all of the EBS techstack-related sessions here: We have almost forty sessions intended for EBS architects, systems administrators, DBAs, and consultants.  These sessions include:
  • Best practices for upgrading to R12
  • Case study of Oracle's own R12 upgrade
  • Upgrading EBS 11i customizations to R12
  • New OA Framework features
  • Performance tuning
  • Applications and web services integration
  • Extending EBS with ADF and SOA Suite
  • Minimizing patching downtimes
  • Business continuity planning and maximum availability
  • Best practices for deploying EBS on Exadata
  • EBS sizing on Sun hardware
  • Internationalization and multilingual features and best practices for EBS
  • Application Management Pack case study with Flint Hills Resources
  • Application Change Management Pack case study with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
  • Personalizing, extending, and customizing EBS
  • Advanced architectures: RAC, clouds, Oracle VM, Advanced Compression
  • Diagnostics and troubleshooting techniques for common EBS issues
  • Security
There are too many fascinating sessions to list comprehensively here, so make sure that you review the document above.  I will personally be hard-pressed to be able to attend all of the sessions in which I'm interested. 

Interested in a private meeting?

As usual, I'm happy to meet with you to discuss your EBS techstack or architecture questions.  My calendar tends to fill up quickly during OpenWorld week.  If you'd like to get together for a private meeting, please feel free to drop me a line soon.


Hi Steven,

OAUG Upgrade SIG meeting is moved from Sunday 9/19 at 2 PM (room 3008) to Sunday 9/19 at 4 PM (room 3012), due to a schedule conflict with OAUG EBS Applications Technology SIG meeting.
We were told it is too late to update schedule builder so we are trying to communicate this change using all possible channels of communication within Oracle and OAUG. Could you please update "Focus on Applications Tools and Technology" document to reflect this change?

Thanks, Sandra
Sandra Vucinic
OAUG Upgrade SIG Chair

Hi, Sandra,

Thanks for letting us know. I've asked Nadia to update the FocusOn document; it will be updated at the link above as soon as she posts the change.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Great! Thanks Steven.

See you in a few weeks. Have a safe flight to SF.

Take care, Sandra

Can anyone provide me with a link to download the 12.1.3 release of r12 with the vision database. I am looking to download it and set it up as I am a student and looking at a possible promotion to jr Apps DBA

The 12.1.3 Release Update Pack is only available via My Oracle Support. You need a valid support licence to access that.

You can download Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 from edelivery.oracle.com. That media pack can be used to create a Vision demo environment or an empty new EBS environment.

EBS 12.1.1 should be fine if you're just looking to learn how to install and administer EBS.
