We are two weeks away from Oracle Openworld 2014! One of my favorites are the high profile Keynotes, you can see the lineup here. I noticed that while Larry Ellison used to speak only on Wed afternoon, a few years ago, now he is a regular on Sunday evening and then on Tue this year. The Sunday evening allows a preview of the new announcement at the OOW and those do not have to wait till Wed. There is no title or theme for the Sunday evening keynote by Larry, I guess that leaves room for any new announcements! However, the Intel speaker Renee James will speak on the hot theme today "soft-define anything!"
Unlike last year, when the Thursday keynote by Edward Screven, was about Internet of Things (IoT), there is no talk with specific IoT focus this year. However, both OOW and JavaOne had IoT as a major Track and is full of rich content. I will speaking on a related topic of Industrial Internet / IoT on Sunday under IOUG's user group sessions. On Monday, I will be at an Aerospace and Defense Industry session talk and talk about GE's Industrial Internet efforts for Aviation sector. On Tue, I will help to host a BoF session on use of Java in the Industrial Internet / IoT space. This one is under JavaOne IoT track.
In last few years, most the Wed afternoon talks by Larry was accompanied by the Infosys CEO and seems like this tradition will continue on Tue afternoon.
More to come.... I will be active on Twitter @ShyamVaran
