Oracle Open World: The day before

Today is all about registration. Luckily one of the registration points is also in my hotel, so I was able to register without waiting in any line. Imagine, about 45,000 people will be registering today for Oracle Open World.

Oracle Open World: The day before the day before

Today, the 28th of September, started off with an 11 hours flight from Amsterdam to San Francisco. All together, leaving home to the airport and checking in the hotel, took 17 hours. Something to think about if you are planning to attend Oracle Open World in the future from the Netherlands.

Oracle Open World 2012, a few days to go

Just a few more days to go to Oracle Open World and social media is overflowing with all kinds of invitations and reminders. It is almost impossible to keep track of the information flood. It looks like this year it will be an even bigger event.

With the time slot of my session being on Wednesday 3:30 PM - Moscone West - 3011, already 156 people have pre-registered. I hope they will all show up and attend the session. It is looking to become a crowded session!

PeopleSoft at Oracle Open World 2012: What to expect?

A few more days to go to Oracle Open World and excitment levels are rising.

With Oracle's acquisitions over the years, the portfolio of Oracle's products and technologies has become so much, that one might wonder how this will be reflected on Oracle Open World in just a couple of days. One answer is the 1900+ sessions in 5 days! But what about PeopleSoft? What can we expect on PeopleSoft on Oracle Open World?

Paco Aubrejuan, Oracle Senior Vice President for PeopleSoft, has published a letter to the PeopleSoft customers on the focus of PeopleSoft on Oracle Open World. Paco Aubrejuan mentions the following subjects:
  • Rich new features and functions included in the upcoming PeopleSoft Release 9.2

  • Extending PeopleSoft with new mobile solutions

  • New solutions that revolutionize how customers maintain their PeopleSoft applications, streamlining PeopleSoft lifecycle management and reducing total cost of ownership

  • Continued investment in PeopleSoft beyond the delivery of PeopleSoft Release 9.2

From the list of subjects, I think the majority of the PeopleSoft community has been waiting and awaiting mobile solutions for PeopleSoft. With PeopleTools Mobile being depreciated as of June 5, 2009, it is great that Oracle is willing to meet the requests of the community for mobile solutions.

But which solutions will Oracle provide and with which technology?
  • JQuery Mobile, Rest services ...

  • Oracle ADF Mobile with Soap Services (native presented at OOW2011 and still in beta ...)

  • New technology ...?

Stay tuned and I will try to provide answers to all these questions.

Oracle Open World Schedule

With over 1900 sessions and 3000 speakers in five days, it is pretty hard setting up a schedule for Oracle Open World. Especially if sessions you want to attend, overlap or being held simultaneously. Finally I came up with the following sessions, I intend to attend at Oracle Open World.

If you want a live report on these sessions, follow me on twitter @hakanbiroglu.

Advisor Webcasts for Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise

Where do search for information on PeopleSoft subjects? PeopleBooks, Forums, Blogs, Wikis, Google, etc ...

Most of the time the information you find via these media is either at a high level or specific to a small part of the functionality. What most people do not know is that Oracle is providing Advisor Webcasts on a regular basis for partners and customers. Hosted by the experts on that subject, with a deep dive in the subject, that you will not find anywhere else.
