It's that time of year again, and we are getting ready for Oracle OpenWorld. The conference is being held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco from September 18-22.
As a result, this blog will be in hiatus for a couple of weeks. After the conference is over, we will pick up where we left off.
There are many opportunities to learn about Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud at this year's conference, in the form of presentations, a customer panel, and a meet the experts session.
Here are some of the highlights:
We are also pleased to offer two interactive events that will be of interest to all attendees:

P.S. On a personal note, I'm unable to attend OOW myself this year, but hope
you are able to take advantage of this great opportunity. Enjoy!
