What did last year’s attendees think?

This was a very informative day for me, and it was really good to see the different systems, and hear about different experiences of Oracle – both the good and the not so good. The case study was, to me, the best session of the day as it was all about first-hand experience, lessons learned and the real impact of the introduction of systems such as Applaud.
