Oracle OpenWorld 2011

Oracle OpenWorld LogoOracle OpenWorld once again promises to be the biggest and best technical conferences to attend. There will be tens of thousands of attendees, thousands of sessions and hundreds of demonstrations all focused on Oracle technologies. More information can be found at If you are attending this year, send us an email so we can set up a time to meet you at the conference.

Vlamis Presentations on Sunday and Thursday

We are scheduled to present "Fast and Complex BI Analysis with Oracle OLAP" on Sunday, October 2, at 9am in room Moscone West - 2003 and on Thursday, October 6 at 3pm in the Intercontinental Ballroom A. The presentation will explore how new features in Oracle OLAP 11g can enhance the performance of Oracle-platform-based data warehouses. The data warehouse can then provide your original data and additional measures through standard SQL to any reporting solution you wish. The presentation will focus on using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (and the new map views in 11g) and Excel as clients of the data warehouse. We look forward to "bookending" the Oracle OpenWorld conference on Sunday and Thursday and seeing you in one or both of the presentations.
