I'll be highlighting OpenWorld 2008 presentations that cover some of the most popular E-Business Suite technology stack topics.  A catalog of all of the Applications Technology track sessions with links to the presentations is available here:

Here's a spotlight on one of my own OpenWorld sessions:

OracleAS Certified With EBS 12

Another airport stopover, another eagerly-awaited certification announcement.  Nice to do something productive while I'm sitting here waiting for my flight to be called.  I'm pleased to announce that Oracle Application Server 10g is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.  Specifically, the following OracleAS components are now certified for external integration with Apps 12 environments:

Discoverer Certified with Apps 11i

I'm still on vacation but can't resist posting about new certifications from my team.  Michael Armstrong-Smith has been diligently (and correctly, of course) reminding EBS users that they should hold off on upgrading to Discoverer until it's certified with the E-Business Suite Release 11i. 

The wait is over:  Discoverer is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and higher.

Three Options for Scaling Up E-Business Suite for Reporting

[Oct 10, 2008 Update: Added link to article comparing the use of Oracle Active Data Guard with Oracle Data Guard for EBS environments]

The run-up to our annual OpenWorld conference consists of frenzied activities to ensure that all of our planned certifications wrap up in time to be announced at the conference.  The follow-up from OpenWorld consists of handling questions, bug reports, and escalations from our sessions, panels, and private customer meetings.  Given that this is all on top of our regular day jobs, one day I'm going to print up some t-shirts that say, "I survived another Oracle OpenWorld."

OracleAS Certified with EBS 11i and 12


We wrapped up a new certification over the long weekend, but it's a bit of a strange one. We had originally not planned to do this certification at all, for reasons that might be clearer by the end of this article.

However, a suitably large number of you have requested it explicitly, so we revisited that decision.  This is an object lesson in the principle that it never hurts to ask. On to the actual certification announcement:

Oracle Application Server and Oracle Developer Suite 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) Patch Set 2 ( (Patchset 4960210) is now certified for use with E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 environments. This certification covers all platforms for which this OracleAS patchset is available.
