This year the EMEA Customer Advisory Board (CAB) was held in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. Representatives from Oracle product management and engineering teams met with customers from all over Europe to discuss market trends, product direction, and to get feedback on current products.
Day 1 focused on updates since the last CAB meeting, including the launch of 11gR2, the state of the IDM business, and featured updates from the Directory Team, the Access Management Team and the Identity Governance team.
Day 2 contained moderated discussions focusing on Mobile Identity Management, Cloud Identity Management, and Enterprise IDM. The first of three customer presentations was delivered by Vodafone Romania who discussed how they are using Oracle IDM.
Day 3 contained customer presentations by BT and Turkcell, followed by breakout sessions, on topics ranging from risk management to upgrade & migration strategies.
Overall, this CAB was a very big success, and proved beneficial to both the Oracle Product Teams who collected valuable feedback from customers, and for customers to hear directly from the product teams about upcoming product road maps and direction. Several customers also mentioned that they really enjoyed hearing about other customers' implementations and plans.
Thank you to all that attended, and a special thank you to those customers that presented!
