Orlando, Florida, June 14, 2018 – Edward Roske was named Top Essbase Speaker at ODTUG Kscope18, the largest conference in the world for Oracle EPM & BI professionals. ODTUG recognizes the top speakers at the conference by evaluating responses from attendees during individual sessions. Roske presented several sessions but ultimately won for “Everything a PBCS or FCCS Developer Needs to Know About Essbase Calc Scripts.” He has been presented with top speaker honors at prior Kscope conferences, along with interRel’s Glenn Schwartzberg and Joe Aultman.
Roske is an Oracle ACE Director and has spoken in 47 countries on six continents, including Oracle Developer Community (formerly Oracle Technology Network) tours throughout Latin America, Asia Pacific, India, and the Middle East & North Africa. He has also presented with various Oracle user groups in South Africa, Germany, England, Scotland, Australia, and Asia, as well as major Oracle conferences such as Oracle OpenWorld, ODTUG Kscope, and OAUG Collaborate. He is a co-author of 10+ books in the Look Smarter Than You Are with Oracle EPM series, creator of 50+ YouTube videos on EPM & BI, and is an active member of the EPM/BI community on Twitter (@ERoske).
Kscope18 took place June 10-14 in Orlando, Florida at the Walt Disney World Resort. This marks the fourth consecutive year with interRel as the Titanium Sponsor and the tenth consecutive year with interRel at the top of the conference’s partnership level. The company had 10 speakers participate in over 20 sessions. In addition to Roske, speakers included ACE Directors Tracy McMullen, Glenn Schwartzberg, and Opal Alapat (who was promoted to Director during the conference), ACEs Robert Gideon and Wayne Van Sluys, as well as Joe Aultman, Ronnie Tafoya, Terrance Walker, and Kevin Whalen. In between sessions, attendees enjoyed themselves at interRel’s booth which featured Rock Band VR and Oculus Go (an all-in-one virtual reality headset). And last but not least, interRel took (a close) second place in ODTUG’s first-ever lip sync battle.
Roske and the rest of the interRel team look forward to attending Kscope19 in Seattle, Washington from June 23-27, 2019.
