OracleWorld.jpgI'm not really sure where to start. This thing is huge!! The show seems to have San Francisco bursting at its seems. Every hotel for 30 miles is booked and the 40,000 attendees seem to be everywhere you look in the city. I have to admit the energy level is very engaging and makes the day go very quick. Just like I did last year I will attempt to give you a little insight into the show and highlight the important business intelligence news that is coming out of the show.

The San Francisco Chronicle ran the following on it's first page this morning:
Expected economic impact from the show 60 million
16,000 Hotel rooms booked for Oracle conventioneers.
275 Buses rented by Oracle to shuttle people around San Francisco to venues and hotels.
100 People who work full time, year-round on the annual convention.
124 Miles of cable for computer hookups.
1 America's Cup yacht owned by Larry Ellison on display at Moscone North.
