Select Magazine Oracle Expert Panels

I was pretty busy at the Collaborate 07 conference organizing the Select Magazine expert Panels. Select Magazine is constantly rated as one of the key benefits of being a member of the IOUG. The goal of putting on the expert panels was to bring together recognized experts in emerging technologies. The expert panels below brought together tremendous dialogue and discussion between the expert panels and the attendees. Below is a summary of the expert panels.


SELECT Journal is sponsoring a series of expert panels each evening during COLLABORATE 07 that will highlight the key focus areas of SELECT Journal throughout 2007. These expert panels contain a Who's Who of international experts in Security, Grid Control and XML. These three areas are of key focus for emerging Oracle features and technologies. These panels contain Oracle Product Team members, IOUG knowledge experts and customers. Focus areas for SELECT Journal for 2007 include: Oracle Fusion Middleware (2nd quarter), Oracle Security (3rd quarter), Oracle XML Best Practices, and Oracle Database 11g.

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
