Time to apply what was learned...

Even though Collaborate 09 - IOUG Forum has come to a close this year, and in going back home I am thinking of all what can be applied back in the "real world". The amount of learning and information that is packed into such a short amount of time is incrediable. Everything from OEM tricks and tips on installing and configuring to RAC and 11g new features. Support for the current Oracle 10g database has been extended, but with all of the new features of 11g upgrades should be in the planning. Orlando was really the place to be this past week if you use any of the Oracle stack, learning about the individual pieces as well as how they all work together is really a big advantage of having this conference. Getting to know members of the IOUG and learning what they one to hear about and if the sessions that they attended were useful was also great conversations in the evenings. I did really enjoy hearing about all of the different presentations and what was good and not so good. It is amazing that you can pick up a tip to improve your backup strategy, learn how a company is using streams and then the best way to secure you database, all before noon each day. I was also able to step out of my normal database realm and learn about what Oracle is doing the content management and record management area. Then there were also sessions on SAP and Peoplesoft. So, starting planning if you are sorry you missed all of the great learning, Las Vegas, April 2010.
