Oracle Exadata customers presenting at Oracle Open World

Greg Rahn tweeted a list of Exadata-focused sessions at Oracle Open World next week. As Oracle employees and supporters have been foreshadowing, there will be Exadata users and user-like folks presenting. I identified what look like half a dozen (not counting any who, for example, will make surprise appearances at keynote addresses), specifically:

    I know Softbank (Japanese telco) are presenting as well. However, it’s not really fair to compare presenters from the entire Teradata user base to presenters from the user base of a 1 year old product, which lets face it, is still only a small slice of the overall Oracle DB pie (given that said pie is quite large).

    Wow!!! The most successful product launch in the history of Oracle and they have all these quality references….something smells

    Well, they’re surely holding back some flashy ones to unveil next week.

    The best DBMS testimonial video I’ve ever seen was Apple’s — Steve Jobs personally, and he was brilliant — for Cullinet a quarter-century ago. Maybe Oracle will try to do something of that ilk.

    Curt, is there a copy or transcript of that Jobs video you mention? Didn’t find anything obvious on Google.

    I doubt it. It was obsolete by 1986 or so, which as you know is a very long time before YouTube.
