Cisco is back at Collaborate , the great show put in place by IOUG , this year in Las Vegas April 7- 10.
More and more Oracle customers benefit now from the advantages provided by Cisco and Cisco partners for mission critical applications, not only in terms of performances but also in terms of TCO.
So what are we doing this year at Collaborate 2014 ? Here is the complete list of Cisco activities , as well as a resource center to know everything about our partnership with IOUG, and other technology partners such as EMC , or NetApp. But I like also to highlight some specific activities.
 Oracle Virtualization and Risc Migration Bootcamp
With our partners Intel and House of Brick Technologies , we just completed a full day workshop to help the attendees to plan a Risc migration and virtualization deployment in the safest environment possible.
I interviewed yesterday Daniel Young, Manager of Data Base Administration from Indiana University about his experience
As we promised this was an intense and fast moving session where we gave our all and didn’t hold anything back regarding the best way to execute your Oracle virtualization or server migration efforts. Developed after years of hands-on real world Oracle virtualization and migration projects, this bootcamp distills implementation and execution experience into a 6-hour session that will help you plan and implement your own project.
 Women in Technology
This year again, Cisco is the proud sponsor of Women in Technology luncheon and panel discussion .
These two events are exciting opportunities to share experiences and challenges in the high tech industry.
I hope that this year we will witness more men showing up at the panel session , as there are a lot of lessons to learn from these powerful and inspiring panelists
We are pleased to have on Thursday Kathy English, Senior Director Data Center, as moderator of the conversation.
