Welcome to OAUG Texas 2005

The OAUG/Qwest combined conference in Texas this year was very well attended and very well organized, so props to the conference commitee and the collaborative teamwork that pulled it off. This observer found the mix of SIG Special Interest Group) sessions, functional and technical tracks very helpful. The sessions I found particlarly interesting were the end user experiences, and the SIG sessions. I participated in the Multi-National SIG with Hans Kolbe of Celantra Systems, and later in the CPE accredited session on Statutory Compliance Tools on Tuesday. Also, a nod to Solution Beacon LLC for allwing me to use their demo environment via WiFI at the last minute due to network issues.

On the Oracle front, John Wookey's session on Monday that laid out the Fusion strategy with some solid business drivers around adaptable business processes and better business insight driving better business decisions. He also mentioned that Oracle wants their customers to have a "Superior Ownership Experience" and made the first steps toward a real customer focus, clarifiying what was being supported and until when for many nervous J D Ewards, PeopleSoft and indeed Applications users. The messages were also clear in all the presentations it seems, although I only got to see Steve Miranda's session, where it was tied to both the 11.5.10 new features and at least one hint on Release 12 around Multi-Org Security.

More later ......
