Collaborate 2012 update - additional Hands On Lab sessions

Hello Collaborators.

Great first 2 days at Collaborate. 

On Sunday saw Anthony Isele from McKesson tell a wonderful success story on how they converted critical contracts from Actuate to BI Publisher within Siebel CRM - A Case Study of a Migration to BI Publisher From Actuate at a Leading Healthcare Company.  Earlier Mark Andrezjewski and Shawn Scanlon touted the benefits of the Oracle Red Stack for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers - I Bleed Red, Oracle Red Stack that Is...

Big news on Monday from our friends on the JD Edwards team who introduced EnterpriseOne 9.1 with One View Reporting Press Release -- bringing the power and ease of use of BI Publisher 11g to EnterpriseOne customers.

Also saw Edelweiss Kamermann from the UYOUG share the good news about BI Publisher 11g for BI Publisher Enterprise customers and customers of BIEE -- BI Publisher 11g: Only Good News

Thanks again to the BIWA SIG of the IOUG and to Vlamis Software Solutions for again preparing servers and client machines to host the Hands On Labs. Like the past 2 years we had more people show up than we could accommodate.

For those of you who couldn't get a seat at the BI Publisher Hands On Lab on Monday, the IOUG has generously arranged for a repeat sessions on

Thursday 8:30 - 9:30 and 9:45 - 10:45 in Palm B 

Please come by for this opportunity to get your hands on experience with BI Publisher 11g.  Unfortunately the lab handouts are too large to upload to the blog site.  Please visit Building Reports and Data Models in Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher Hands On Lab and you can download the lab handouts from there.

I'm sure there were other wonderful presentations these past two days.  There are so many it's hard to get to all of them.

Looking forward to the rest of the show.

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 Call For Papers Ends Monday 9-April at Midnight

September 30th seems a long way off now but the window of opportunity for a free pass to Oracle Open World is closing fast.

Act now to share your BI Publisher success story with others and demonstrate your mastery and expertise. I know some of you are experts and it would be great for you to share what you know. Now is the time to submit your presentation abstract for review by the selection panel.

The competition is strong: roughly 18% of entries are accepted each year from more than 3,000 submissions. Review panels are made up of experts both internal and external to Oracle. Successful submissions often (but not exclusively) focus on customer successes, how-tos, or technical topics.

What’s in it for you? Recognition, for one thing. Accepted sessions are publicized in the content catalog, which goes live in mid-June, and sessions given by external speakers often prove the most popular.

Plus, accepted speakers get a complimentary pass to Oracle OpenWorld (worth up to $2,595). More importantly that pass provides access to all sessions and networking events ─ priceless!

So don’t delay ─ submit your session abstract now!
