Oracle Usability Labs at ODTUG Kaleidoscope

Are you a developer?  Er, likely, else you wouldn’t be reading this blog.

Do you use “Hyperion” products?  Hyperion = the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management stack of Essbase, HFM, Planning, DRM, ODI, EPMA, FDM, SmartView, OBIEE and any number of acronyms I can’t remember.

Would you like to influence the way Oracle develops the EPM stack?  I hope so if you live in them like I do.

Okay, enough leading questions because ODTUG Kaleidoscope comes through again with an opportunity to tell Oracle directly how you like their IDE’s user interface.  And it isn’t just Hyperion or Essbase Oracle is interested in, there are many other tools (what, they sell something other than Essbase?) like: 
  • APEX
  • Essbase
  • Forms
  • Hyperion
  • Java
  • PL/SQL / SQL
  • SOA / BPEL

And do you use IDEs such as:
  • Adobe Flash 
  • Adobe Flex 
  • Borland JBuilder 
  • Eclipse 
  • Essbase 
  • Hyperion 
  • IBM Rational Application Developer 
  • IBM WebSphere 
  • JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA 
  • Microsoft Visual Basic 
  • Microsoft Visual Studio .Net 
  • Oracle Application Express 
  • Oracle Forms/Reports 
  • Oracle JDeveloper/ADF 
  • Oracle NetBeans 
  • Oracle SQL Developer 

If you answer "yes" to any of the above, Oracle is looking for your opinion.

I’m not sure who is the more awesome – ODTUG for getting this into Kaleidoscope or Oracle for actually asking what developers want.  Check it all out here, and tell them that Cameron the Essbase hacker sent you.

See you in DC!
