Oracle OpenWorld 2010 starts soon – September 19, to be exact. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever!

As usual, there will be plenty to keep CRM On Demand fans entertained. I highly recommend checking out the “Leveraging On Demand Analytics” session on Monday and the “Best Practices” session on Tuesday.

See the full roster of CRM On Demand sessions here:

You can get great deals during the show at the Oracle Bookstore (Moscone West, Level II) and even meet the Oracle Press authors. I’ll be there Monday and Tuesday from 10 AM to 10:30. Bring your copy of the CRM On Demand Deployment Guide and I’ll write something on it!

I’m a big fan of Google Alerts and have about a dozen set up, many to search for terms related to CRM On Demand, Oracle, and the like. My monitor for “software as a service” picked up a nice new paper published by Forrester Research which details a lot of the same things we’ve said here on the podcast and in conversation with customers and prospects.

You can find the article here (full paper with free subscription).
