Heading to Oracle OpenWorld 2018? With sessions ranging from keynotes, general sessions, customer use cases, business studies, product roadmaps, hands-on workshops and of course, the demo exhibits, the conference would serve as an immersive experience for the over 50,000 people that are planning to attend this year in San Francisco’s Moscone Center from Oct 22nd to Oct 25th. The focus of this year’s conference is on peer-to-peer learning, where we can hear first-hand of the latest innovations not just in Oracle services but also the ones being driven by Oracle’s customers on their own.
From chatbots to IOT, blockchain, AR and VR technologies to artificial intelligence and machine learning, the pace of technology innovation is picking up - offering limitless opportunities for organizations to design their own innovation journeys. For organizations using Oracle Cloud Applications like Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle SCM Cloud, Oracle HCM Cloud and/or Oracle CX Cloud, their innovation journeys have already started. Leveraging Oracle Cloud Platform alongside Oracle Cloud Applications further enable these organizations to connect their data and intelligence and deliver differentiated experiences using cutting—edge technologies.
If you and your organization are embarking on or in the midst of your innovation journey, we have curated a list of sessions that should be of interest to you. Do keep this Focus On Cloud Platform for Cloud Applications guide handy. We recommend you add these sessions to your Schedule Builder today as some of these sessions will likely be standing-room only.
In this post, I would highlight some of the key customer sessions you wouldn’t want to miss. Over this week, I will continue to highlight some of the other business studies, product roadmap and hands-on workshop sessions and services demos that you may find useful.
