Saturday, October 4th, 2014 by

It’s the Saturday after Oracle Openworld 2014, and I’m now home from San Francisco and back in the UK. It’s been a great week as usual, with lots of product announcements and updates to the BI, DW and Big Data products we use on current projects. Here’s my take on what was announced this last […]
