It’s just a few days now until I travel over to San Francisco for Oracle OpenWorld 2011, for what is probably for me the professional highlight of the year. As one of the ACE Directors, I get to go to a two-day briefing across the whole range of Oracle’s technology products at HQ before OpenWorld starts, and then I travel to downtown San Francisco for when the event starts properly on Sunday.

Sunday is a great day if you’re an ODTUG’ger as we’re running a number of Sunday Symposiums covering topics such as BI, EPM, Data Warehousing, APEX and Web architecture. I’ve been organizing the BI Symposium that runs on the Sunday afternoon, and I’ve invited some of the great and good from the OBIEE blogger and developer community to come and present, including

– Christian Screen (http://www.artofbi.com) on Oracle Business Intelligence 11g Action Framework: Basic to Advanced Integration

– Jeff McQuigg (http://greatobi.wordpress.com/) on Oracle Business Intelligence Metadata Development: Advanced Solutions

– Myself (http://www.rittmanmead.com/blog) on OBIEE 11g Change Management and Deployment Best Practices

– Stewart Bryson (also at http://www.rittmanmead.com/blog) on Aggregation : Oracle Optimizer vs. Oracle BI Server

– Kevin McGinley, winner of the ODTUG KScope’11 Best Paper Award, on Upgrading Your Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Software

This is a great opportunity to hear some of the best Oracle BI speakers in one place, over just a few hours, and with lots of opportunities for interaction. The sessions will take place from mid-day through to 5pm and will run in Moscone West 2011.

And finally – once you’ve finished at the BI Sunday Symposium, get yourself across to Larry Ellison’s opening keynote in Hall D, Moscone North, where I hear on the grapevine that there’ll be some very interesting product news concerning BI. If you’re coming to Open World, hopefully I’ll see you there, otherwise you can read all about it in my upcoming BI column in the ODTUG Technical Journal!

*You can also see Mark at the SP Conference in Sydney, Australia.*

It’s hard to believe but Oracle OpenWorld 2011 is less than 2 weeks away (October 2-6, 2011)!  It’s an exciting time as Oracle devotees from around the world make their annual fall migration to the Moscone Center in beautiful San Francisco, California.

As we have since the dawn of time (the first OOW in 1996 that is), ODTUG will be there to bring you the best of the best in technical content from our pantheon of Oracle development gurus (including many Oracle ACEs and ACE Directors).  You can hear from the likes of Steven Feuerstein, Mark Rittman, Edward Roske, Tim Gorman, Peter Koletzke, Lonneke Dikmans, and Dr. Pal Dorsey (just to name a few).

During the Sunday User Forums we bring you over 25 sessions packed with information you can use. This year we have put together five tracks for you to choose from:  Business Intelligence (led by Mark Rittman), APEX (led by Scott Spendolini), Web  Architecture (led by Paul Dorsey), EPM/Hyperion (led by Edward Roske), and  Data Warehouse Performance (led by Jerry Ireland). These sessions start at Noon on Sunday October 2nd and are free to all registered OOW attendees. Check out ODTUG’s Website or the online content catalog to see the abstracts, times, and room assignments (all in Moscone West).  Be sure to select “User Group Forum” in the Type filter.

Myself, I will present a session “Why Data Vault?”  and be part of a data warehouse expert panel on Sunday afternoon as part of the ODTUG Sunday User Group Forum. Then on Thursday October 6, at 3 PM, I will present “Introduction to Data Vault Data Modeling” where I will discuss all the basics you need to get started modeling your EDW using the Data Vault Modeling technique.

Again this year, you can meet with board members and ODTUG staff at the user group pavilion in Lobby Level 2 in Moscone West.  Be sure to drop by the ODTUG booth to get the latest news about KScope 12 or maybe to join or renew your membership.
