OOW 2012 Preview

Last year I blogged about the struggles establishing my schedule for Oracle Open World. Lo and behold, another year gone by, my next flight to San Francisco is only two weeks away, and I find myself in the same quandry. I spent more than an hour sifting through hundreds and hundreds of sessions, yet I feel unsatisfied with my schedule. The current iteration is heavy on E-Business Suite, dips one toe in the water for Fusion Apps, PeopleTools, and EPM, and somehow OBIEE, my personal hobby-horse, hardly makes an appearance. Yet the prospect of opening the schedule builder again is severely unattractive. What to do? Should I start over and put my faith in the automated schedule builder? Farm this out to my team? Wait until I'm onsite and employ the close-eyes-and-point technique?
