Welcome aboard at Oracle, Alex Zaballa

Our PM team is slowly growing – and I am so happy about our newest team member. Welcome aboard at Oracle, Alex Zaballa!

Now I think I need to start learning a bit more Portuguese. Rodrigo is located in Brazil, and Alex relocated a while ago to the US but is Brazilian as well. I am really excited to have another super-smart guy in our team helping us with upgrades, (cloud) migrations, patching, Cloud Migration Advisor and CPAT, and other cool things. Personally, I enjoy working with people who have such a deep knowledge …

Gracias, obgrigado … Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Brasilia and Sao Paolo

This was a long trip – but as usual, traveling to South America is wonderful. So it time to say gracias, obgrigado … Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Brasilia and Sao Paolo. I’m so happy that I’ve been invited to speak at the OTN Groundbreakers LAD South Leg Tour 2019. Believe me, it is really hard to fly back after such intense 10 days.

Gracias, obrigado!

But Id like to thank many people. It was an awesome tour again. I participated for the forth time. And I learned a lot again. From customers who discussed their upgrades and migrations with me. From the other presenters who did a terrific job.

I did not participate in last year’s LAD OTN Tour through Latin and South America. And to be honest: I really missed it. So this year is a new chance. I will head out in less than a week and start my journey in Uruguay, then Argentina and finally Brazil.

OTN Tour South America: Uruguay, Argentina & Brazil

I really don’t look forward to a 20 hour trip in coach from Munich to Montevideo, Uruguay. But I’m looking forward to meet and see many tech folks in Montevideo, Buenos Aires and Sao Paolo during the next week. Roy and I will deliver a Hands-On-Lab in Montevideo on Monday and in Buenos Aires on Wednesday. Plus presentations on Tuesday, Thursday and finally Saturday in Sao Paolo. Well, and our colleagues in Brazil have taken the chance to schedule 3 customer visits in Rio and Sao Paolo on Friday in between 🙂 After this week I will need a …

Obrigado :-)

Thanks a lot to everybody who did visit our workshops in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in the past days. And actually our “Thank You” or Obrigado! can’t express how Roy and me felt in the past days. I believe I’ve never felt so welcome – you all, customers, partners and Oracle folks were simply great. Thanks a lot for that. We’ve had a great time – and we hope you had some fun as well and enjoyed the hands-on lab as well.

Let us know if anything with your upgrades does not run as desired – or if …
