Editor's Blog - Parties, Pearl Jam and Best Practices
Posted: Oct 04, 2012
It's the last day of sessions here at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, and despite the late night many folks had, sessions are impressively well attended this morning.
After several busy days of talking to current and future Quest customers at the User Group Pavilion, networking with Oracle executives, attending sessions and chatting up vendors, thousands of people - including some of your Quest staff and board - made the trek to Treasure Island for some carnival games, barbecue and great music from Kings of Leon and Pearl Jam.
The day started for your Quest editor with a session focusing on Fusion Project Portfolio Management coexistence with other applications. Although the session primarily focused on EBS, some good information for PeopleSoft customers included the fact that Oracle took the best of PeopleSoft project costing for Fusion and specifically this and other parts of Fusion to coexist.
On the JD Edwards side, a great session followed on integration best practices. Fusion Middleware is certified for JD Edwards, making integration across applications easier. Even though a quick poll from the podium revealed that nearly everyone in the room had attended the party and concert the night before, attendees followed up the session with several questions and comments about in-house versus outside contracting work and other processes.
The last few sets of sessions are still to come - check back for any updates, and look for the full Oracle OpenWorld recap coming the next issue of Q&A magazine later this month.
