oracleworld.jpgI am happy to be at another Oracle OpenWorld event in San Francisco. Hanging out with 37,000+ customers and partners. The morning session was kicked off by the Co-Presidents Charles Phillips and Safra Catz. The theme today was two fold and focused on reminding people that over the years Oracle has acquired over 50 companies and has a positive track record of keeping the technology and improving it. They spend 3 Billion a year on R&D updating and improving the stack of technology they have brought together. The message was clearly aimed at the SUN deal that has become bogged down over concerns around the MySQL database product and community and weather it competes with the Oracle database.

The team then demonstrated how well integrated and "open" the solution stack is. Safra Catz said "We are slavishly devoted to open standards..." and the team showed off how well the various stack components work together starting out with project planning jumping to integrated budgeting with the PeopleSoft and Hyperion technology then to the Retail solutions and CRM.

Overall a nice beginning to the day. I am off to sessions....

The Twitter tag for the event is #OOW09 its a lot to consume but many good items are coming through. @Merv Merv Adrian is also here and he's doing a great job covering things.
