Big4Guy ERP Blog

Came across this new ERP blog the other day which is worth a read. Big4Guy is blog which has confessions, thoughts, musings and observations of a Big4Guy. The description of the blog states:

Big4Guy is an online resource where I will share with you the latest news, insights, knowledge and my experiences as a Big 4 consultant. I will discuss some of the important issues which organisations are facing today in the areas of information security, security and controls in SAP R/3, Oracle Applications, J.D.Edwards, Peoplesoft and various other ERP’s. I will also attempt to provide valuable resources for individuals interested in the CISA, CISM, CISSP, and various other security certifications considered essential for entry in any Big 4 accounting, auditing and consulting firms. You are invited to post your comments and viewpoints to my posts. I sincerely hope my online journal will be useful to everyone from a budding student to a professional in the accounting, auditing, management and consultancy professions.

New Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Blog

OK it’s not so new but I haven’t mentioned it yet on this blog and wanted to plug it. Steven Chan, Director, Applications Technology Integration has started an Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Blog which is really hot. Loads of interesting news and features and updated on a regular basis.

The about section of the blog states its:

An Oracle insider’s take on technology stack-related topics for the Oracle E-Business Suite, with sneak previews of upcoming releases, new product announcements, glimpses into the inner workings of Oracle Development, in-depth discussions of technology-stack architectures, and the occasional desupport notice.

It’s a feature - a new Oracle Applications Blog

I’ve come across a few new Oracle and Peoplesoft blogs recently, check out SmartDB Blog, Extra Hot, The Oracle Fusion Blog, Peoplesoft Corner and CRM Blog

In particular I wanted to mention It’s a Feature, another Oracle Apps Blog, which has some good content and is updated regularly.

Marian Crkon write’s in the About Us section of the blog as follows:

It’s not a bug - it’s a feature!

This is a new web log about implementing and using Oracle ERP Applications. It’s a Feature! is here to provide an alternative platform for independent, in-depth reviews and analysis of current Oracle Applications releases and features; an opportunity to share knowledge and resources, voice opinions and show a little attitude! Where else can you do that?

I plan to seek out a diverse group of Oracle professionals - users, consultants, managers, business analysts with a lot of Oracle expertise and something interesting to say who are passionate about the applications and motivated to share their experiences.

I want this site to be about the functionality (not just technology) of Oracle Applications. The clients keep reminding me they do not care about how it’s done, but rather that it is done right. I want this blog to be useful to other people in the Oracle community. I want to provide a productive feedback to Oracle program managers and developers who design the applications. I want to give a “second opinion” for clients who buy them, a sounding board for consultants and business analysts who implement them, and last but not least, a valuable resource for users who use them every day. I promise no sales pitches, no bragging, no censorship, only practical advice.

A couple of recent entries from the blog:

  1. CRMBuyer.com’s Survey of SAP Customers
  2. Oracle Applications Day Continues in Select Cities
  3. OAUG Releases Skills Marketplace
  4. CIO Article About Fusion and SOA
  5. Oracle To Lay Off About 2,000 Employees
  6. Oracle Has Its Eyes on Open Source Competitors
  7. Are You Eligible for Oracle Fusion Upgrade?
  8. Conversations with iExpenses Users from Avenue A | Razorfish
  9. Do Not Forward Oracle Notifications from Outlook!
  10. Oracle Applications Security Is Changing in Project Fusion

Marian is interviewing me over Skype next Tuesday and I’m sure the notes from that conversation will be posted on this blog.

Oracle Indonesia - Executive Circle Blog

I discovered another new Oracle Blog the other day which you should add to your list of feeds.

The Oracle Indonesia - Executive Circle Blog discusses how Oracle will help the Indonesian business communities both in private and public sectors, as well as business leaders and government officials to grow their business, adapt to changing needs, deliver better business insights, minimise the cost of managing information, delight your customer/citizen and provide superior ownership experience

I’m not to sure who the author is but most of the posts seem to be by the Managing Director’s Office so I guess they’re by the MD himself. There is a disclaimer on the blog stating that the opinions on the blog are those of the author and not of Oracle.

A look at some of the posts to date:
