I got this pin at Collaborate 12. Oracle was handing out bags stuffed with JD Edwards' material and gifts at the General Session entrance. I couldn't get one because it was only for Oracle customers, but I got this PIN! YEAH! Another fun thing: inside the bag, had a passport and the idea was to fill the passport pages with some tips that appear during Oracle's sessions and after complete filling the passport, there has a contest or something like that... It was an interesting and fun way to market JD Edwards!

The auditorium being filled for Lyle Ekdahl's talk.
|Look at the people with the red bags on hand...|
Here's all about: Vision, Promises and Execution: It's the Way We Roll and Why It Matters!!
It was such a nice and fun talk! Lyle with his particular way to present JD Edwards. He's very objective, smart and the sense of humor is a characteristic. It's his style. I have to confess it was shocking for me on my first time I saw Lyle starting a talk wearing pajamas with a bear plush on hands waking up from a "Dream"! That was really creative and inspiring for me!! That reflects JD Edwards' position on the market: breaking paradigms, innovating and creating this personality. Reinventing himself!
Below the main announcements of the event: E1 9.1 and World A9.3!
Mobile apps show - it was a live demo; the wi-fi signal was not 100% set, but after a while everything goes well and we could see the Mobile applications running. In this case, the Mobile Expense Management module running!
In this final picture, Lyle's on a such performance got a FLAG, a GUN and a DUCK... He shot a duck on the stage!! But hold on, the duck was a toy and no firearms there! That was to justify his year's resolution he mentioned here: http://goo.gl/gmfeJ
I'm still working on JDEFusion Collaborate12 Report, but after going to Vegas I had a trip to Washington DC and next week I'm flying to Brazil to stay with my family and friends after almost a year in US. It's being such a busy time for me, but I'll do my best on the report! Thanks again for the reading and hope to see you soon!
