The Next Oracle Partner Community Forums!

We are delighted to invite you to the 2014 editions of the Exadata, Exalogic & Manageability Forum, and of the Servers and Storage Partner Community Forum, for EMEA partners, which will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, on 1-2 April and 2-3 April, 2014, respectively.

The amount and richness of experiences and skills that Oracle partners have developed around the above areas are a key asset for the partners, customers and for Oracle. Sharing that experience, customer cases and best-practices among partners constitutes the core of the forums.

Through presentations by Oracle solutions experts you will learn the latest on the different solution areas and the best way to go to market together. One-on-one sessions with Oracle executives can help to boost the relationship between your company and the Oracle organisation at local level and facilitate increased sales engagement.

You can review the detailed agendas and register for both forums here:
Exadata, Exalogic and Manageability Forum
Servers and Storage Forum

Both forums will be held at the same hotel in the beautiful city of Prague, so that partners interested in both areas can attend the two events and minimizing their travel costs.

We look forward to seeing you there!
