Maybe they need some Oracle DBAs to resolve Metalink Tars on time. :)
Maybe they want you to share your experience in 'Channels - PEER-TO-PEER' of Oracle Magazine.

I remember they calling me when I downloaded OAS from OTN. They asked me how am I doing with it and do I need any demo or help. I told them that our company has no plan whatsoever to buy or implement it. I just downloaded it because I couldn't get any better toy for timepass. :)

We tend to get calls like these every 6 months or so, basically I think they are just touting for business thinly disguised as an after care call. :)
