PIPER-Rx - Conferences

Oracle E-Business Suite Resource Centre



I have been fortunate enough to have attended a large number of user group conferences internationally over many years, however not too many in the USA. After a number of submissions and attending a few conferences there, I came away with the opinion that in the US unless your paper expounds the virtues of Oracle you donít appear to get selected. Most of my papers have a different tone; they offer practical solutions and at times can be quite cynical - so after a while I gave up submitting papers in the US and focused on APAC and Europe.

To the best of my memory I have attended the following Conferences:
