A complete list of conference activities devoted to cloud is available on the Oracle OpenWorld website. Event organizers have nominated the following four don't-miss sessions.
Session: Is the Cloud Working for You? If Yes, Wow! If Not, Why Not?
Although software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) are making it easier to get applications and infrastructure at the swipe of a credit card, developers and IT operations are struggling to keep up with tools sprawl, code rewrites, accidental architectures, security compromises, and line-of-business complaints about siloed experience and lack of insights. See how Oracle's public and private platform as a service and IaaS offerings help customers avoid these pitfalls and gain the promise of cloud computing.
Cloud Computing Strategy: Your Strategy, Your Cloud, Your Choice (CON1980)
As enterprise adoption of cloud computing accelerates, organizations must have a strategy and a plan for moving to the cloud. What should you put into public clouds? Should you create a private cloud? Should you use cloud applications, platform, or infrastructure? This session explores best practices and helps attendees define their own roadmap to the ideal cloud environment, whether in a private, public, or hybrid cloud. It examines the trade-offs between different cloud models—and how Oracle’s complete offering can meet the needs of any organization.
Odyssey: A Hero’s Quest (CON1977)
The time has come for humanity’s first interstellar trek to Terranuvem, the cloud planet, and Chief Engineer Cyrus Agarwal has been chosen to ready a ship for the voyage. He must make the right architectural choices to transform the ship for the long journey and be prepared for the unknown. Attend this session for a unique, Telly award winning sci-fi movie experience while discovering key success factors for guiding your own journey to the cloud.
- General Session: Drive the Future of Self-Service IT with Oracle Enterprise Manager (GEN8250) This session explores Oracle’s systems management strategy, including a sneak preview of expected future developments. Oracle experts will be joined by customers and partners sharing their experiences in deploying and managing large-footprint Oracle private cloud environments. The session will also recap Oracle Enterprise Manager’s evolution into a powerful self-service IT management tool.
Keep an eye out for the Oracle Cloud demo showcase, located front and center in the exhibit hall. And be sure to add the Intercontinental San Francisco to your itinerary for hands-on labs devoted to public cloud and the Hotel Nikko for hands-on labs devoted to all other cloud-related topics.
