On the night before OpenWorld officially begins, there is a great energy building around the Moscone center. Visitors have been flying in from across the globe and San Francisco has its usual buzzing charm. As we gear up to begin the week, take a look at the top five activities you won't want to miss at this year's Openworld. Welcome and enjoy!
1) Hear real stories from real customers
Openworld provides customers the opportunity to hear about the latest product releases, updates to functionality, and most importantly- understand what businesses like them are doing to improve their organizations with Oracle technology. This year there are a variety of customers from every industry and many different countries here to share their stories of success, roadblocks they've experienced along the way, and what's next for them. Take a look at the Openworld session catalog and be sure to stop by a customer panel to catch these real stories.
2) Learn by doing with Hands-on Labs
There are so many sessions to choose from each year, but for some, the best way to learn is by doing. The hands-on lab sessions give you a unique experience to try out a product with the experts who helped build it in the same room! Take a moment to join one of our Database Security Hands-on labs sessions and search up additional topics that interests you.
3) Stay connected with social media
OpenWorld can often be a whirlwind week, filled with hundreds of sessions, keynotes, and social activities. Stay grounded with the latest updates on our Twitter account @OracleSecurity. We will be live tweeting key security sessions, alerting you on any changes, and unveiling very exciting release information. Also, be sure to check the Oracle Cloud Security Blog each morning as we post insights throughout the week and beyond OpenWorld. Be sure to take plenty of photos and to use #OOW19, we look forward to connecting!
4) Must see sessions
Some of the top security sessions include topics surrounding new features and products as well as thought leadership and customer panels. With 89 security related sessions this year, you can't go wrong, but you can't see everything! Security is big this year, don't miss out.
5) Take some time to relax and socialize
All work and no play is no fun! Be sure to mix in a few events during your time here in San Francisco. This year, OpenWorld has kicked it up a notch and is providing a lot of relaxation activities for attendees. Oracle Park will be home to several of these activities, including a movie night on Monday, FitFest.19 which offers attendees the chance to sweat it out on their field at Oracle Park in a yoga or bootcamp style class, or make a new furry friend at the "Paws and Relax" experience located in the Exchange. And of course, don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes for CloudFest.19 featuring John Mayer with Flo Rida. You can learn more about most of these events at the Oracle Park Be Well Hub around the corner from the Moscone South entrance on 3rd. Street. Or here at the event highlights page.
Whether this is your first experience at OpenWorld or you've been coming for years, there is sure to be a week full of exciting experiences, announcements, and networking. Don't forget to stay tuned for more content throughout the week and most importantly, have a great time!
