UPDATED: Openworld - Striving for a single source of truth

The buzz around the conference is increasingly about the expectation of a major keynote from CEO Larry Ellison on the news around the company's latest Application developments. The theme of the conference has been about integration - integrating an organisation's various IT assets to gain a better view of information and data critical to better planning and decision making.

There are 1900 individual sessions around the conference this week, and among those were three Australian customers who are doing just that. We caught up with them after their presentations:

Cadbury is a confectionary food leader in Australia, New Zealand and Japan and we spoke to IT Director Ashley Peck about how he has been able to integrate his Demantra Demand Planning and Siebel CRM using Oracle Business Intelligence to gain a single source of truth on his company's information:

We also spoke to James Madigan, CIO at The Crane Group, about how he is doing something very similar with JD Edwards and Hyperion - integrating his Oracle assets to better understand his company's health and augment the bottom line:

Stay tuned to hear from other ANZ companies presenting at Openworld about how they are integrating their various IT assets using Oracle solutions. UPDATE : Listen to Bruce Moy, G James Glass IT Director, talk about his Oracle Apps footprint, global best-practice implementation and using Oracle SOA (from within Oracle Fusion Middleware) to integrate his Oracle Apps with legacy apps). A good example again of what Thomas Kurian's Keynote was about.
