It is summer again, and ODTUG is going to the beach! Just in case you are wondering if I've gone mad, nope (at least I don't think so). This year's ODTUG conference will be held in Daytona Beach.
Last year we launched Warehouse Builder 10gR2 (the now famous Paris release) at ODTUG, so this year there will be a little less hype around OWB, but I think it should still be good. If nothing else it is not the worst location ever to be for a conference and it is one of those conferences that are great fun.
As far as OWB goes, I'll be presenting 2 sessions, one of business rules and ETL which is a bit of the beaten track, the other one is a "preview" as to what OWB 11g will bring (and I think I'll bring 10.2.0.3 patch along as it has some really cool stuff - also in 11g, but 10.2.0.3 might be easier to get to). Just finished the PPT for this and we will also look at the roadmap for OWB. You all of course have read the public OWB roadmap doc, but this sessions will cover some questions and ansers and we might be able to show some of the software as it looks today in development. It will be a while till the release, but at least everyone has an idea about the execution on the roadmap.
While we are on the subject, I do get the occasional question as to whether ODI will replace OWB, and the answer is a definite no. That is another reason for showing the software in the lab. You will understand the direction for OWB much better...
Anyways, hope to see you at ODTUG and come and say hi at my sessions if you find them interesting!
