This week, the Oracle HCM User Group (OHUG) is conducting their annual conference in Las Vegas. Unfortunately I am unable to attend this year (although I will be in Vegas later this week presenting at the HR-XML Conference).
Word from those on the conference floor suggest the turnout is incredible. A significant different from last year when I considered the audience disengaged and disinterested. Has Fusion interest finally arrived? It think so…especially with SAP’s Business ByDesign announcement last week lighting a fire underneath Oracle’s butt. At least some credit, though, should go to the OHUG board for lifting the conference from near death and restoring some of the Peoplesoft atmosphere. From what I hear, the conference has nearly double its attendance from last year , with an estimated 1,500 attendees. Partners exhibiting at the conference has also nearly doubled to almost 50 (stop by the Knowledge Infusion booth if you are there ).
This is sometimes how real market research is conducted!
