Cameron's Blog for Essbase HackersMy good friend, fellow ODTUG Board Member, and Oracle ACE Cameron Lackpour is quite prolific when it comes to writing (anyone who writes more than I do must be prolific, right?). Well, this week he is going slightly overboard, but for good reasons. Kscope12 is exactly ONE MONTH away today. Cameron has put a blog post up each and every day this week highlighting a session or a bunch of presentations that he thinks that you might be interested in. While Cameron talks mainly about the EPM space, he does have some highlights that go outside of the EPM space. I always try to catch up with Cameron’s posts, even though I’m not in the EPM space, because he is a great writer with a very unique sense of humor. He is also very thorough and informative!

So, here are the links to each day’s posts on Cameron’s blog:

Kscope12 session highlight No. 1

KScope12 session highlight No. 2

KScope12 session highlight No. 3

KScope12 session highlight No. 4

Extra credit and brownie points to the first reader of these posts that spots the other ODTUG Board Member’s presentation in these four postings of Cameron’s. Leave me a comment in my blog when you find it.

#Kscope 11 BI EPM Lunch and Learn

#Kscope 11 BI/EPM Lunch and Learn

Guest Blogger: Martin D’Souza

Coming to the best Oracle Developer’s conference in the world this summer (i.e. Kscope 12)? If you are, and I certainly hope you are, you probably have a list of things to bring: clothes, toothbrush, clean underwear & socks (no exceptions :-), laptop, etc.

What you may not have on your packing list is a list of questions to bring and get answered by the world’s leading experts! On Tuesday, June 26, there will be a Lunch & Learn panel for each of the main content groups. The panels will be filled with Oracle ACE and ACE Directors who will gladly answer all of your questions.

On a personal note, I’ll be participating in the Oracle APEX panel, and I’m really excited to be sitting next to the best of the best in the APEX community.

You can see a complete list of the different Lunch & Learn sessions along with the moderators and panelists at: http://kscope12.com/content/lunch-a-learn.

Don’t forget to bring your questions to Kscope12!

Robb SalzmannDo you want the inside scoop on all that Essbase and Essbase applications have to offer? Are you interested in honing your Essbase and EPM skills to a razor sharp edge? Kscope12 is now taking registrations for the conference in San Antonio. This conference promises to be the most content packed featuring deep business and technical presentations from many of the world’s most recognized Oracle professionals. You can easily spend twice the conference fee on one training class lead by one person. At Kscope, with its Hands-On Labs and rich presentation schedule, you not only get a huge learning opportunity, but you’ll also have a ton of fun with other professionals in your field at a world-class resort!

This year I had the privilege of leading the Essbase track content selection committee. Working with the other content committees, we had a tough time deciding which presentations to squeeze into the conference schedule. The submission quantity was overwhelming, coming from a broad range of highly qualified presenters. The content schedule represents the best of the best—the only improvement would have been having a long enough schedule to use all the submissions. But face it, you can’t lavish yourself in luxury and good company at a resort and earn a living at the same time. (If you can do this, please give me a call!)

The content my group has selected for the Essbase track at Kscope spans the range of business-based case studies to advanced administration to deep technical discussions and hands-on labs. If you’re new to Essbase, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with a track of presentations just for you: the Essbase beginner track. I must still be a beginner in some respects; there are presentations in this track that I know I can learn something in. For you seasoned Essbase pros, there’s no better place to sharpen your skills and get the latest information, tips, and techniques.

My name is Robb Salzmann. I’m the developer of the Essbase functionality in Accelatis’ Ascension Suite http://www.accelatis.com. I’ve been working with Oracle Hyperion products for the last fourteen years as a developer and consultant. I love to lend a hand and meet new people. Please contact me through my LinkedIn page: http://www.linkedin.com/robbsalzmann or through my blog at http://codingwithhyperion.blogspot.com. I’ve been attending and presenting at various conferences around the world for a few years. For deep technical information, Kscope is far and above all the others. Beyond that, what I really love about this conference are the people. People like me who embrace technology and love this business. Some attend to focus on the content, others to expand their network, and many for a bit of both. Whatever your interest at Kscope, I hope you will stop me between sessions and say “hi.”
