In what seems like an obvious response to the ongoing economic downturn, enterprise software supplier Oracle is offering to help its customers make a business case for attending Oracle's user conference.

Oracle OpenWorld, the annual gathering for Oracle customers, is scheduled for October 11 - 15 in San Francisco.

Oracle sent an email invitation to the event this aimed at manufacturing companies. The subject line in the email says, "Hear from Industrial Manufacturing and Technology Thought Leaders."

Inside the email is a link that says "Provide a Strong ROI Case to Your Manager." Clicking the link sends readers to a page where readers can download one of three letters that Oracle has prepared stating a case for attending OpenWorld.

The letters are designed for use by people with different roles within organizations:

• Application users;

• Application developers; and

• Application managers.

Readers are instructed to download the appropriate letter and customize it to fit their individual circumstances.

The opening two paragraphs of the manager's say the following:

"Oracle OpenWorld 2009 is the one conference our company should attend this year. In fact the conference value is worth many times the registration fee.

In these challenging times, we have to stretch our existing assets-including leveraging and supporting our current IT infrastructure-to realize the true potential of our information."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
