What: Sydney Oracle Meetup #3 – Focus on E-Business Suite + Oracle/Sun deal
When: April 28, 2009 5:30 PM
Where: As usual – Sydney Mechanics School of Art
How: just register at the SOM website.
We are gathering at 5:30pm and technical goodies are starting at 6pm so use this time to catch up with other members. We should finish by 8:30pm including a beaks and some post follow up. The presentation schedule is a bit floating this time.
As usual, we should have some pizza and beverages facilitating seamless peer networking. ;-)
In addition to the main topic, we plan to have some overview of Oracle / Sun deal and share what everyone thinks about it + report from the InSync09 conference. We will talk a bit about MySQL as it becomes Oracle technology now.
Even tough this meetup’s technical content is built around Oracle E-Business, it’s not intended to be purely for Oracle Apps DBA’s and should be attractive to anybody interested to learn how this product is built including DBA’s, Architects and Developers.
We have one presenter for the evening – Jurijs Velikanovs. Jurijs is an Oracle Certified Master (one of the first OCM’s in the world) and has been working with Oracle E-Business Suite since 2001. He worked with installations of 1+TB in size and up to 6 nodes Oracle RAC on the back-end. Jurijs has been involved into one of the first EBS/RAC implementations and numerous infrastructure upgrade projects.
Oracle e-Business Suite technical components overview, architecture, DBA challenges and future directions.
Oracle E-Business Suite (OEBS) is the Oracle’s flagman applications set covering almost every business area of a modern enterprise.

Questions to be answered:
- Technical components the product consist of
