Siebel Open UI Developer’s Handbook – Announcement

My friend and fellow Siebel Blogger Alex Hansal has posted an exciting announcement on his Siebel Essentials Blog.

Along side long time Siebel Guru’s Duncan Ford, Kirk Leibert and Jan Peterson, Alex is writing a new book due for publication this winter. Entitled “Siebel Open UI Developer’s Handbook”, the book aims to teach you all you need to know about OpenUI technology and how best to apply it.

Don’t let my grumpy old man rant about OpenUI put you off: once Innovation Pack 2014 hits the shelves in Q4, OpenUI should be in a much better place to be a viable proposition for your company. OpenUI brings with it a plethora of new technologies that the dedicated Siebel Consultant will need to tuck into their tool belts. This book could well be the “must have” Siebel guide for 2014 – make sure you get it on your Christmas list.

Oracle CRM On Demand Administration Essentials

My very good friends over at Packt Publishing have sent me yet another book to look through and review – Oracle CRM On Demand Administration Essentials.

Now, being a Siebel guy through and through I had to think hard about whether or not to read the book. However, as a technology enthusiast I decided to accept the challenge and open my eyes to a world of alternate CRM solutions.

Full review to follow or you can buy the book now direct from Packt Publishing.

New Siebel book hits the shelves!

I’ve remarked in the past how things have changed for Siebel over the last couple of years: blogs, forums and books are now surfacing allowing us to discuss, read and learn outside of the confines of Oracle University.

Now, a new book has just been released called Oracle Siebel CRM 8 Installation and Management that aims to further expand the growing knowledge base available to all of us in the industry:

The kind people at Packt Publishing have offered to let me peruse a copy and provide my feedback. I’m really excited about this as previous attempts (Siebel 8 for Beginners, I’m looking at you!) at encapsulating the behemoth of Siebel in paperback form were not, in my opinion, particularly worthwhile.

Stay tuned for a full review in a couple of weeks time!
