Campaign Save Oracle Reports

I started last thursday the campaign "Save Oracle Reports" and I get more and more EMails. All of them have company-wide applications running with forms and reports and cannot live without reports.

Oracle Reports is dying?

At the DOAG Development Panel yesterday was told about the future of Oracle Reports. That did not sound good

Next week there will be an important internal meeting at Oracle, where they speak over the future of Oracle Reports in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c. It looks like, that the BI Publisher will be the replacement for Reports and Oracle Reports 11g would be the last version.

Very important: We don't have time and have to react very fast. Spread this idea to other customers, your colleagues, etc. They should write me in the next days.

I hope we have a chance to get our

Oracle Forms 12c

"Oracle Forms 12c" is the new official name in the Fusion Middleware 12 universe for our good old forms!

So it looks like all products are getting the c (for cloud) in their name.

Let's hope, that Fusion Middleware 12 starts in 2012 !
