This is the first of a series of posts I am planning leading up to Oracle OpenWorld which starts in less than a week. I have a few different focus areas this year, so I’ll write a little about each of them.
I’ve been talking about collaboration in ERP for quite some time and was also very flattered to have TheAppsLab and Ultan (@ultan) for the UX team cover what we have done in their blogs too. I call it Socializing the Finance Department, it isn’t about more Pot Luck Lunches and after work drinks, it is about using social tools in a secure and efficient manner, embedded in your ERP system, tied to your transactions and business flows to make you more productive.
The Oracle Social Network(OSN) is part of the infrastructure we build our cloud applications on, so it is pervasive in our cloud apps. There are a lot of good sessions, see here for the complete OSN list. I will be on a panel discussing the best use cases for social in enterprise applications, Tuesday September 30th 5pm – 5:45pm – Moscone West – 3022, full details here.
We won’t be doing a demo, but here is one video to give you a taste of what we will discuss, or check out my post Can chatting make us more productive? for another video. If you catch during the #oow week, I’m usually happy to show this off, so feel free to ask me.
