Oracle OpenWorld 2012 is getting close to the finishing line. Tomorrow, Thursday Oct 5th will be the last day of the conferecne. The last session will end at 3:15pm followed by the closing ceremony. My OOW12 trip really started on the Oracle ACE director product briefing in Oracle HQ on last Thursday and Friday. During this two-day product briefing, we were given 16 presentations by Oracle VPs as well as product management directors that coverred some major product areas. The topics that fall in my areas included database, cloud, Enterprise Manager, virtualization & Linux, GoldenGate, Oracle EBS. What I am interested in most are Oracle database 12c: pluggable Database, Oracle EBS R12.2 online patching feature, virtualization and cloud features. After the two days product briefing, we took the OTN bus to come to San Francisco downtown in late Friday afternoon to get ready for the OpenWorld conference.
The OOW conference started with the user group day on Sunday Sept 30. I co-presented UGF7700 – Oracle on Oracle VM: Expert Panel at 12:30pm-2:00pm (click the name to download the presentation). A full room of audiences really showed their enthusiasm on this topic.
My second presentation was CON3875 – High-Availability Infrastructure of the Database Cloud: Architecture and Best Practices at Monday 3:15pm-4:15pm. As usually this HA and database cloud topic attracted a good attentention of the conference audiences who filled up all the seats in Moscone West- room #3020. Many people requested the presentation slides after the session. The pdf of slides are available for download on the link.
My third also the last presentation CON5206 – Simplify App Deployment in the Cloud with Virtual Assemblies and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, was given on Wednesday afternoon 5:00pm-6:00pm. Although I didn’t get a huge audience like the last two as this was not only a new and advanced topic, also the last session of the day before most people were heading to the conference party on the Treasure Island. The people attending this session seemed to be very interested in this topic. This relative small size of the audiences actually made this session more interactive. The pdf of the presentation can be downloaded through this link.
Besides of my own presentations, I also attended a few presentations including few keynotes. This conference has been a really learning and networking opportunity for me. It has been really great to meet some old friends as well as new friends. I have really enjoyed the conference this time as much as my previous 6 times.
