Open World is a blast!
It has been great putting names with faces! Met up with fellow bippers yesterday: Cory Keogh (from Gallup and fellow presenter), Pradeep Sharma, Noelle Bartlam, Klaus Fabian, Leslie, Osama Elkady and Mike Donahue. Fun crowd!
A little known fact about the infamous Klaus. Ever heard of a pink elephant gift? Klaus has taken this to a whole new level with the pink iPhone. Rumor has it Klaus got a very good deal on this phone, from a disgruntled husband who got his wife’s pink phone. Classic example of checking your pride at the door or a possible lack of shame; regardless Klaus mantra, it’s all about the technology, pink it’s the color of passion! Correction: It's a pink razor.
Also, met up briefly with Gareth Roberts. He's working the press scene here at Open World and answering BIP questions. If you get a chance, say hi but I warn you everything is on the record :-)
Wondering what’s new with Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher for Oracle Applications? If you get a chance check out Noelle Bartlam session, she’ll give you the low down on how to use BIP across platforms. Check it out! The reporting platform for Applications: Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (S309970). The session covers implementations of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher in Oracle E-Business Suite; Oracle’s Siebel Customer Relationship Management, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards products; and other Oracle Applications.
What’s hot? How about the HTTP Analyzer! Don’t know about this hidden gem in JDeveloper11g? It’s a great tool that allows developers to easily create and test existing web services. If you ever wanted to test out the web service or build one from scratch this is the ticket! Went to the "Hands-on Lab: Web Services Development and Consumption with Oracle JDeveloper" and did three different exercises in 45 min. I walked away with a really good understanding of the tool. If you’re at open world, I would highly recommend this session or similar sessions. If you not at open world or would like to take a quick tutorial click here
