Collaborate18 – more interest in Oracle APEX than ever!
It’s time for the Insum Collaborate18 wrap-up
Our APEX experts were at OAUG’s premiere event from April 22nd to April 28th. According to all present it was, in many ways, our most successful Collaborate participation yet, garnering more interest in Oracle APEX than we’d seen in previous years.
To everyone’s delight, our newly updated Insum booth received a constant flow of people. Users wanted to know how APEX helps solve problems in Oracle Forms, Oracle Discoverer, and, of course, E-business Suite (EBS).
Our experts shared their experience of the event
This year Collaborate was a very busy conference for me. I was speaking for IOUG and OAUG.
On the OAUG Apps side of the house, it was all about EBS and Oracle Application Express alias APEX. As my colleagues testified, we are definitely seeing a trend with the adoption of APEX to extend E-Business suite. There was also a lot of interest in Monty’s session about automagically migrating Discoverer reports.
On the IOUG side of the house, there was very high interest in my session about using Oracle APEX to extend and modernize Oracle Forms. There are still a lot of Oracle Forms in use in companies and we understand that it is not always easy to replace or modernize. But knowing that when you have an Oracle Forms installation, you automatically have Oracle APEX included, opened a lot of eyes with all the new possibilities this offers. If you have Oracle Forms and would like to create dashboards, web services, mobile applications, calendars, interactive reports, etc. You can do all of this today!
As usual, networking and meeting with old friends is always part of the collaboration collaborate brings.
Overall I had a great time in Vegas and on top of it, I got to see the Golden Knights win their first game against the Sharks.
What more can I ask for ? Go Vegas!
As a first-time attendee of Collaborate, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this big Las Vegas conference. As it turns out, Collaborate18 provided a wealth of opportunities for learning, sharing, and networking. One big takeaway was the fact that APEX is rapidly gaining in visibility outside of the APEX community. The proof: not only were there many well-attended APEX-focused sessions, additionally, numerous professionals came to the Insum booth seeking to edify their own APEX knowledge and to get assistance increasing the use of APEX in their organizations.
Between the enthusiastic support of the APEX sessions and the rich interaction among colleagues, partners, and clients (current and future), Collaborate18 was a truly unforgettable event.
For my first COLLABORATE experience, I was pleasantly surprised at how well APEX is established as an EBS solution for CEMLI extensions. Since Oracle’s white paper release, APEX is considered a natural choice solution in the TechApps community and it’s popularity continues to increase. It’s primordial for INSUM to maintain Its presence at COLLABORATE as both an APEX expert and leader.
