Naomi’s Questions For Oracle OpenWorld 2010

Nuclear Fusion, Oracle Fusion, Close Enough?

With Oracle OpenWorld 2010 coming up next week, I hate having to miss one of the major enterprise IT three, four, five-ring circuses of the year. I would have loved to attend, but HR Tech 2010 is thefollowing week. And unlike my much valued and much younger Oracle […]

Event Report — Workday Technology Summit 8-23-2010 — Humongous Post

Workday held a briefing yesterday for twenty of enterprise software’s toughest and most knowledgeable analysts.

It also wasn’t about Oracle giving its installed base a break on their maintenance fees or committing to keep most of Sun’s […]

Reflections Of A Digital Immigrant Gone Semi-Native: Professional Value Of Social Technology

I’ll get back to the world of HRM and IT as soon as I have two arms with which to tackle the really meaty stuff, but for now I’m continuing my one-armed reflections of a digital immigrant gone semi-native, the first installment of which is here This post owes a shout-out to Jason Averbook and […]

Reflections Of A Digital Immigrant Gone Semi-Native: An Embarrassment Of Riches

As many of you know, I had left shoulder rotator cuff repair surgery on 12/18/09 and have been mostly offline since then except for backlogged blog posts (extensive, probably boring suggestions for “killer” scenarios) and the odd tweet (sometimes very odd as a result of the pain meds I’ve been taking, as sparingly as possible).
