It is that time of year again, Customer Edge conference time. This year we will be once again holding a Technical stream which focuses on the Oracle Utilities Application Framework and related products. Once again, I will be holding the majority of the sessions at the various conferences.
The sessions this year are focused around giving valuable advice as well as giving a window into our future plans for the various technologies we are focusing upon. As normal, there will be a general technical session covering our road map as well as specific set of session targeting important topics. The technical sessions planned for this year include:
