Oracle OpenWorld Day 3 October 15, 2009

Posted by Duncan in OOW.

The week’s best bit of news came in Larry Ellison’s keynote today. Larry said that although Fusion will arrive sometime next year, Oracle will keep developing PeopleSoft for a few years yet.

“We’re going to enhance those applications for the next decade.  We’re a pretty large software company. We can afford not only to maintain the software you’re running today, but to build the next generation of applications.…We don’t think all customers are going to replace what they have today with Fusion.”

A fuller recap of Larry’s keynote can be found here.

Graham Smith (Oxfam) gave us an insight into the OpenWorld party, which sounds amazing.

There’s a packed post from Brent Martin (ERP Associates) full of Tools info.  Apparently there’s a new reporting console to replace Progress Monitor and Report Manager in Tools 8.50, which I didn’t know.

Great work guys.  Thanks!

Hi Duncan. I am sorry I missed you at OOW. I spent most of my week in the demo grounds. It is a tragedy to have you here and not have the opportunity to say hello. Graham and I caught up yesterday for dinner which was a delight. I hope to make it across the pond sometime this year for a SIG or UKOUG conference.

I wish I was able to make it – it sounds like a fantastic event. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get there. I’ve been able to get a little of the excitement from those that have posted on their blogs and hopefully some of the presentation slide packs will appear online at some point.

It would be great to have you over for one of the UKOUG events, it’s always appreciated to get someone from over from the US – and your sessions went down really well last time. Hopefully we can get you a longer talking slot next time.

There’s a chance to win tickets to this year’s UKOUG’s Technology & E-Business Suite Conference and see UK’s first Fusion Application demo.
Looking forward to it!
