Oracle Open World 2010

Hello All,

My OOW 2010 started with a brunch meeting with IOUG Exadata SIG BoDs meeting at Mels drive restaurant. The meeting was attended by most of the Board members including Rich Niemiec, Arup Nanda, Shyam, Dan Norris, Phil Stephenson (Exadata PM from Oracle) and Jeff Jacobs. We missed Shyamal Bandyopadhyay. We had good discussion about upcoming SIG Charter and how to promotr the SIG and SIG events.

Some key items you will see are 1. Official Website for Exadata SIG and 2. More promising Web casts featuring Exadata product and delivered by actual customers along with Oracle.

After the delicious brunch ( Thanks to Phil and Oracle for sponsoring it!!!) we headed to Moscone West for our SIG member meeting. Rich was crucial in getting one of the room for meeting, whearas Arup was doing a great job holding the banner and attracting many attendees towards the SIG meeting. We had close to 40 members attending the meeting with great discussion around Exadata Deployment to best practices and security. We had few Oracle folks attending the meeting and shared few key items with the group.

So we ended the meeting with some deliverables identified and some work for the board members..So I will keep you all posted as we make this SIG a success and make progress. So stay tune....
