Collaborate 2012 - April 22-26

The week of Collaborate conference 2012 is over! It turned out to be a action packed week. It started on Saturday with a full day IOUG board meeting. I have been nominated to the IOUG Board for 2012-213 and will be taking care of Product Integration Portfolio with focus on Exa-systems. On Sunday, we conducted the Deep Dive on Oracle BI Applications (OBIA) along with a friend JV and Oracle Product Management folks. This was intense 5 hr class between 9 am and 3 pm on Sunday and had 20+ attendees. The day ended with IOUG SIG reception were Mark Townsend was recognized for his contributions to IOUG community, posthumously. It was nice meeting Dr DBA or Ken Jacobs in the event, even though he has retied from Oracle. The BIWA SIG board had dinner the same night and discussed possibilities of BIWA SIG and the Quest BI SIG working closer in future.

Monday morning was no rocket science! It was key note with Mark Kelly... I was lucky to obtain his autographed book and here is the picture with him!
