Yes, it is the time of the year again. “Time flies” said a coworker when he saw me with the luggage at the Buenos Aires office. It is so true. I remember the first time I came to OOW in 2007, to discover the show. We were talking about new releases, Oracle acquisitions, a few new products. It looks decades ago but it is just 4 years.
After that show, the following OOW were different to me since I came as speaker which makes you live it in a different way. Even more, last year, I was invited by Oracle, doing press rounds and recording an interview for Oracle Latinamerica.
This year the expectations are going to be around cloud computing (will Larry fight -by words again with Benioff?) and how the new Oracle gear, inherit by the Sun acquisition will impact. The other big topics are going to be: Oracle Fusion, which was presented by Steve Miranda in 2010, but did not hit the road (GA technically speaking) and finally expecting some news about E-Business Suite, such as the new 12.2 which the Release Content Documents (RCD) are available at Oracle Support. Oh right, I’m focussed on applications if you didn’t notice yet :-).
Setting expectations, discovering about product roadmaps, networking with colleagues, meeting new people, learning new products, also having some fun and more. That is Oracle Open World about.
I’ll be trying to keep at least more than a daily post and will keep my twitter accounts pretty active: @ggonza74 personal and mostly Spanish, and @ggonza4itc work related and English.
