Oracle ACE Director Briefings 2014 - Day 1

The iconic Oracle HQ
Privileged to be part of the ACE Director briefings at Oracle HQ, Redwood Shores,

Invited to join Oracle product development for an insightful 2 days of what's new and what's in the pipeline in all the major product areas.

I'm in a room full of some serious Oracle database, middleware and application experts.  Honoured, to be counted part of this great community. You can follow the #aced Twitter feed here 

Just to prove I'm here....

Oracle ACE Directors

Quote of the day from Jeremy Ashley, VP Oracle Applications User Experience group... "innovation is about making something better... not just different".    

A lot of respect in the room for Thomas Kurian,  Executive Vice President of Product Development at Oracle (introduced as Oracle Head of Engineering) who rounded off the day with a classy, no PowerPoint rundown of the major upcoming announcements across all the product lines.  He then spent the next hour answering questions from the floor.  This guy knows a lot about a lot of Oracle stuff.  Cloud and Mobile were big themes.
