My colleague Keith Burns (top chap with great SQL Server skills – but don’t say I said so) is helping to deliver an event focused on helping UK ISVs understand what it takes to move from Oracle to SQL Server.
I would recommend you come along if you currently only target Oracle or primarily target Oracle. Looks to be shaping up into a great day.
