Oracle's Industry Chowder
Oracle's Industry Connect show in Boston aimed to highlight the various industry segments it covers with its products. Light Reading was just there for the communications though.

a major force
Oracle has become an important player in telecom industry. I think its mostly by acquisition. The CRM our company is using, and so many other service providers also using, is Siebel. The parent company was acquired by Oracle. And now they are a major player.

I love this: "The event was a fast-paced series of keynotes and break-out sessions and they frequently had to replace the coffee that you and your tired correspondent don't see here."

Now that we have to submit every receipt for expense reporting, I shudder to think that accounting will now be aware of the depth of my Starbucks addiction when I'm on the road. I almost never touch the stuff when I'm home, but when I'm traveling on business that green mermaid is like a siren to me.

Re: Graying Society
I think I'll go for the 'Do Not Resuscitate' model. It's much cheaper and the batteries last much longer.

Graying Society
I'm looking forward to the day when my life is saved by a robotic personal assistant giving me CPR. Hopefully, it downloads the correct instructions.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
