InSync09 is the first conference in Australia focused on Oracle applications which in the past few years multiplied immensely in numbers — e-Business Suite, JD Edwards, JD Edwards, Hyperion, Siebel, BEA, PeopleSoft. There is also significant focus on SOA.
I submitted couple abstracts and one of them has been accepted so if you are attending InSync09 next week then I’ll see you there! Make you you find me to say hello — they plan to have quite a crows there with up to 500 people.
The presentation that I’m doing is titled “Making Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Highly Available”. It’s more an architectural paper to show what are the paths and how to plan the environment for high availability and what technologies can be used. Obviously, I will touch some of the DBA friendly topics like RAC and DataGuard but it definitely won’t be focused on the database tier only. It’s actually going to be quite an experience as I’m not really an Apps DBA myself so learning curve has been quite steep. I do, however, have good advisers in this are so it should be fine.
The rest of you who are not attending the conference, perhaps, you will make it tonight to the Sydney Oracle Meetup with Tanel Poder and Ric Van Dyke. In the end, what can be better in the current economy than free education topped up with free beer?
