Future So Bright I Got to Wear Shades – Thoughts on Future of Forms Conference – May 15

Yesterday I presented at the Future of Oracle Forms event sponsored by AMIS in the Netherlands.

I must say it was literally one of the most impressive gatherings of Oracle Forms minds I ever saw.  All the speakers themselves could fill a room but to have Lucas Jellma, Grant Ronald, Steven Davelaar,  Francois Degrelle etc.. all together in the same conference was amazing. Its no wonder there were 13 HOURS of content.  It was a modernization marathon.

The format was very original (the brain child of Lucas Jellma) -He gave each speaker a half hour to present, sort of a business card about their solution, then the attendants needed to choose 2 solutions to learn more about in a later session of 45 minutes. Finally into the wee hours of the night people were given the option of doing a deep dive Hands On on the solution of their choice. It was like technology speed dating.

The solutions presented covered 4 main areas:

1) Forms migration – Jheadstart, Pitss

2) Forms to new platforms / mobile – OraPlayer, YoForms

3) Modernizing forms – Look and Feel project and Forms PJC and Java Beans, AMIS consulting

4) Integration of forms in hybrid environments – OraPlayer, OraFormsFaces

I thought it would be helpful to do a sort of flowchart of the solutions and the modernization challenges they help with.

I think this is the best way to sum up the day.

I also wanted to thank AMIS for an incredible hosting job. It’s not everyday you see such a perfectly organized event. It’s not an easy feat to navigate almost 100 people around the offices and provide them with breakfast, lunch ,snacks, dinner and drinks. They spoiled us 🙂

For those of you who attended, let me know what you thought!
