As Oracle’s cloud solutions continue to grow, customers are eagerly evaluating the potential of these offerings to transform the way they run their businesses. Yet, many organizations expect to derive value from their existing, on-premises investments for some time. And somewhere in the middle, many organizations are integrating on-premises and cloud solutions to create unique, hybrid environments.

While the numerous options are appealing, they can seem endless and, at times, a bit overwhelming. Information, education and real-world examples are beneficial in helping customers craft the IT landscape that supports their businesses.

At Oracle OpenWorld, hundreds of sessions and activities are available, specifically addressing the many options before us. Here are my top picks for exploring the future of on-premises Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS), Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), the promise of hybrid environments, and the realities of real-world customer cloud implementations.
