Getting Ready for Oracle OpenWorld

October 18, 2006

From all reports, it could be like pre-bubble days at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco next week, with as many as 40,000 people in attendance. The IOUG will sponsor a wide range of events. Sunday, IOUG president Ari Kaplan told us, has been largely given over to the user groups. "Oracle is working well with us," he said in a private interview. The hot topics were Fusion and the preview of the next database release, Oracle 11g. With a new release of the database platform of the horizon, the need for independent, user-driven technical education will be greater than ever. In the October issue of Database Trends and Application we interview Oracle vice president Rick Schultz who explains more about Fusion. To subscribe, click here.
