That has to be the click-baitiest bit o’ nonsense I’ve ever written. Ever and for me with over 10 years of blogging that’s saying something. I’m not talking about Kscope or ODTUG or Oracle. Instead, I am (of course) talking about me. Totes obvs. Why disappointing? ‘Cos I said I would live blog and I seem to be sort of, kind of, completely not doing just that and am instead lagging a day behind. Whoops. You can always follow my insanity on Twitter where I can get stuff out much more quickly.
As an aside, it has been pointed out to me that all of this is available on the Kscope app and that’s absolutely true. Think of this as my way of getting the product roadmaps and announcements out to world+dog.
What Cameron, what are you doing and how are you going to do it? Beats me but if you figure it out, send me a comment care of this blog.
I am again going to post a series of screenshots that highlight the really important announcements Oracle have made at Kscope. (As an aside: really, if you can swing it in any way, manner, shape, or form to come to Kscope2020 in Boston, Mass. you really ought to as this sort of blog is only giving you a smattering of what’s going on. There, I’ve performed my inarticulate best to sell Kscope. Dear ODTUG, I’ll take my payment in unmarked used twenties stuffed in a manila envelope at the corner of 6th & Pike sometime today. Hah! Clickbait again! I’m getting (not)good at this. I’m certainly enjoying it.)
agonizingly slow refreshingly tolerable flight across the country to get home I’m going to do my best to summarize and reflect upon all of the announcements in the conference but that comes later.
For now, here’s yesterday in pictures. I tried to post this in the order in which I took them but I’ve almost certainly jumbled up the sequences. Sorry, but it was a lot.
Oh yeah, apologies for the blurriness of the snapshots. Perhaps it’s time to get that new phone and let my iPhone 6 shuffle off this mortal coil. Or learn how to take pictures. Or both.

Thank you, that was really good for the poor shmucks stuck at home! Maybe next year, Boston is easier to reach from this side of the pond…
How is it that the Planning slide is ironically the most blurry photo you took?
Thanks for the updates.
What are the chances? Happily I don’t make my living as a professional photographer. I’m working on an overview post. Perhaps with luck I’ll be able to read it myself.
Hi Cameron – what did you hear, if anything about Financial Reporting Studio, on-premise? Some rumors going around that this is going away in 11.2. Thanks.
FR is still there in on-premises but is feature frozen. In the cloud, Management (Narrative? I can’t remember but it’s one tool.) Reporting is the way forward for all reporting needs.
