ERDAS and Oracle: Building Geospatial Business Systems

Last Wednesday I had the chance to travel up to Brussels to sit in on our ERDAS & Oracle technology seminar: "Building Geospatial Business Systems". It was a full-house and the day was full of both ERDAS and Oracle product information, as well as customer presentations of business solutions they have created by synthesizing technology from both companies.

Some of the focus areas included:
- A introduction and discussion on ERDAS APOLLO, which we just announced last week.
- The ERDAS commitment to OGC standards, including the importance and priority of interoperability.
- Oracle Spatial in Europe, presented by EMEA Oracle Spatial Product Manager Mike Turnill.
- A discussion on the ERDAS product roadmap and direction.

Here are a few snaps from my camera phone. Overall it was a great event: full turnout, great discussions, and a high level of interaction and information exchange.
