What Past Attendees Had to Say

At COLLABORATE, I talked with a couple of different individuals at Oracle booths and was able to find out a couple of "bugs" that were the possible cause of our problem. Having the ability to talk directly with Oracle reps allowed me to ask questions and receive answers that could potentially resolve our issues.
