Recap on Oracle OpenWorld

Today wraps another Oracle Open World. Outside of some extreme weather on Tuesday that had everyone scrambling for umbrellas, the event went off without a hitch. Many of the sessions provided real world insight to customer deployments and technical details, but it was difficult to differentiate these from the sales & marketing presentations just by the session title and description.

Of greatest interest was finally seeing Oracle’s holistic vision for Integrated Analytics to serve ERP, CRM, EPM and Industry Application needs and understanding where the Analytical Foundation fits in the mix. Oracle is hitting the mark. As for the Customer Appreciation night, I’ll just say that Carnival Games are harder than they look and Steven Tyler can still rock the house!
