Notable Apps Blogs - December 2007
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Jan 02, 2008
My cup runneth over. This year marks a watershed for useful technical information about the E-Business Suite on the web. A plethora of new blogs have sprung up, each with their own special take on things.
Here are some of the most interesting sites that I've been reading recently. Some are packed with useful tips, others are more strategic or
philosophical. They're all worth adding to your RSS feed
- BI Publisher (Tim Dexter)
Tim is the one Oracle blogger who seems to work even harder than I do. His blog is packed with tips, screenshots, code samples, FAQs, and advice for BI Publisher users. If you use his product, this blog is a must-read.
- In Depth Apps - Oracle eBusiness Suite (Gareth Roberts)
Another excellent blog from an Oracle insider, with a wonderful array of useful tips, references (check out his terrific Apps Acronym Listing), and other practical advice.
- Irregular Enterprise (Dennis Howlett)
an ERP industry observer, Dennis's blog is provocative, insightful,
challenging, and never happy with the status quo. My kind of writer.
I might not agree with everything Dennis says, but he never fails to
keep my attention.
- Oracle Business Intelligence Blog (Abhinav Agarwal, Gerald Bellot, Keith Laker)
Interesting insights into the present and near-future of BI from Oracle insiders
- Oracle Applications DBA (Aviad Elbaz)
Packed with screenshots, useful tips, and other information from a DBA who clearly enjoys working with Oracle products. Great stuff.
- OracleApps Epicenter (Sanjit Anand)
Subtitled, "Odyssey of an OracleApps Consultant," this blog has an eclectic mix of news items, conceptual overviews of functional Apps areas, and useful tips.
- Oracle Security Blog (Integrigy, Stephen Kost)
relevant and sometimes-provocative comments on security topics relating
to Oracle products (... and yes, Stephen, lots of Oracle staff read
your blog. We're not allowed to comment on most
security-related topics but we're reading and thinking about your
comments; keep up the good work)
- ORCLville (Floyd Teter)
Floyd's a key member of the OAUG Fusion Council, and -- amongst other things -- is involved in managing the E-Business Suite for NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab. He's grappling with all of the deployment and implementation questions common to Apps users, and isn't shy about sharing his thoughts and opinions.
- Usable Apps Blog (Anna Wichansky)
This one's pure mind-candy. Oracle's Applications User Experience group influences and shapes the look-and-feel of Oracle's products, including the E-Business Suite and our upcoming Fusion Applications, naturally. You'll get tantalizing glimpses into the future of Oracle's products through articles that are equally engaging and scholarly (not surprising, given the number of PhDs in this group).
