The Hyperion Guide to Open World. Schedule and Session Suggestions


It’s that time of year again when the city of San Francisco is completely overrun with 40,000-50,000 people from all over the world that come together to meet, socialize, and educate around the Oracle solutions….and it’s right around the corner.

Of course, Mercury Technology Group will be at Oracle Open World in full force. Be sure to stop by space Moscone South space 501 to say hi, learn about Mercury’s managed cloud solutions, and register for your chance to win one of three Apple TVs. We also will be having an appreciation event on Tuesday night. Please let me know or stop by the booth to get your invitation.

Sessions start at 11:00am on Monday, however many people forget that OOW starts on SUNDAY. There are a lot of events that happen that day, including a lot of OAUG, ODTUG, and GEO User Group meetings and meet-ups.

At 1:00pm the OAUG Young Professionals Forum Moscone West—2000

I’ll be presenting at the OAUG Hyperion Special Interest Group Meeting 2:15 p.m. – 3:00 Moscone West—2001. Be sure to stop by this one.

The ODTUG BI Meetup is at 4:15.

And the official Welcome reception is later at the Oracle Cloud Plaza @ Howard Street


Throughout the conference, I suggest taking time to stop by OTN Lounge at Moscone South Upper Lobby. There are frequent community meetups, IoT workshop, and CommunityCasts. There is even food/beer/wine and you can make Your Own T-shirt with cool designs.


If you are a Java nut, be sure to check out Java Hub, Hilton. Meet the Java team for IoT coffee demo, Nighthacker live video recording, Cloud Art Experience, and much more.


I also suggest stopping by the Oracle Support Stars bar. Support staff encompassing most all of the major Oralce Products are there. Come armed with some tough questions or stop by to say hi and meet some of the staff in person.


Of course there are demo grounds as well, where you can see demos of products and future releases.


Exhibition Halls open each morning at 10:15 AM. And of course, the appreciation event with Billy Joel is Wednesday night. (Be sure to bring a jacket, it can get cold on that island!)


Finally, check social media a lot. There will be a lot of news and happenings on things like Twitter. I will be live tweeting relevant EPM and BI news as it happens.. Follow me @erichelmer


Here are some sessions I recommend people attend. One of the best things you can get out OpenWorld is product strategy and roadmap direction which can help anyone in planning there next steps in the coming year or so.
