Racing Boats & Egg Chairs
By nbartlam on Oct 11, 2009
For all of you coming into town for Open World this year, fun and cool stuff awaits.
On display just outside of the Yerba Buena Gardens is the Oracle BMW Racing Boat. You can't miss it on your way over to Moscone West, which by the way is where the BI Publisher demopod resides this year. We're in the back, on the right, Pod W-083.
On your way to visit us at the demopod, you might want to partake in the awesome games at the Blackberry Digital Playground. There you'll find the old style arcade video games, like Donkey Kong and Ms. Pacman. In addition to the games, you'll also find some groovy furniture, a la Mork-n-Mindy. Remember the egg chair? Well, they have those! Leslie (THE BIP Documentation guru) and I tried a couple out and believe it or not, they are super comfy! We're trying to figure out how to snag a couple for the BI Publisher pod...
In addition to finding us at the demopod Monday, you'll find...
Product Manager Extraordinaire, Mike Donohue, giving his ever popular Introduction to BI Publisher at 1pm over at the Marriott.
For the BIP Road Map and Features, head on over to the Marriott at 4pm. On tap to be there is the father of BIP himself, Osama Elkady. He'll be joined by the very knowledgable Klaus Fabian and of course, PM Mike.
Want to learn how to convert your Oracle Reports, Crystal and Actuate Reports to BI Publisher? Well, you're in luck....BIP PM Pradeep Sharma along with Ike Wiggins and Cory Keogh (from Gallup) will tell you all about it at 5:30pm at the Marriott.
If you're looking to get your hands on BI Publisher with JD Edwards, there are 4, count em 4, hands on labs this week. I heard these were filling up fast, so you might want to pre-enroll quickly to ensure you get a spot.
Want to see a demo or talk to us about the product? We'd be happy to chat with you down at the demopod. Please stop by and see us!
