  •   The upcoming Oracle Identity Cloud Services
  •   Leading the Cloud Transformation with Hybrid Cloud Security solutions
  •   Cyber Security compelling requirements, Data Protection Regulations and how Oracle Security Solutions can help)

 You can have a look at the full agenda and register here.

“Through 2018, organizations pursuing digital workplace initiatives that do not modify their Identity and Access Management processes, practices and technologies will yield only 50% of the potential benefits” – Gartner is clearly raising the attention on the evolution of the Identity and Access Management market to support the development of new Digital Business initiatives, rather than just keeping the bad guys out.

This forum is targeted for partners and integrators willing to expand their business and become hybrid cloud enablers.

Welcome to the new EMEA Partner Community for Identity Management and Database Security

The EMEA Partner Community for Identity Management and Database Security is the place where partners in Europe, Middle East and Africa can share experiences and best practices about selling and implementing Oracle Security solutions.

By joining the community you will get first-hand information from Oracle on products, training and tools that will enable you to market and implement all your security projects and services.

Who should join the Community?

  • Community membership is for individuals. If you are working for a company that is an Oracle partner and your job is selling, implementing or just supporting Security solutions in EMEA then this community is for you.

How is this different from the Oracle Identity Management and Database Security Knowledge Zone?

  • The Oracle Identity Management and Database Security Knowledge Zone is the fundamental source of information from Oracle for partners interested in specializing on Identity Management and all the Database Security Options. It is highly recommended that you get access to the Knowledge Zones related to the product areas of your interest. To get access to any of the Knowledge Zones an application must be completed by the Partner Program Administrator for your company.
  • The Identity Management and DDBB Security complements the Knowledge Zone by providing partners with information which is specific for the EMEA market (events, training, references, market..) and it is also a mechanism to share experiences and best practices among partners in marketing, selling, implementing and supporting any kind of security projects.

How to join?

How members access the community information?

There are currently two ways to share and provide information:

  • The EMEA Identity Management and database Security Community Collaborative Workspace. This is an area with restricted access, only for the community members, it contains materials from community events, sales kits and implementation experiences.... It also allows partners to share content and collaborate with other community members. You will get access to this restricted area once you are registered as a member of the EMEA Identity Management and Database Security Partner Community.

Need help?

I hope that you will find very useful the resources and the exchanging experience provided by the community. If you need help or any further clarification, please, don't hesitate to contact me!
