OPN Speed Meeting Tool @ Partner Day Sweden

We welcome you to the Partner Day of the Year in Sweden on January 30th at Courtyard by Marriott Hotel Kungsholmen, in Stockholm. For more information and registration, click here.

We are happy to inform you that the The Oracle Partner Network 2013 – Speed meeting tool is now up and running. You can sign up into the system here.

We highly encourage you to upload a profile picture. This way it is easier for your Oracle contacts to book meetings and for you to find each other onsite.

Please feel free to book meetings with your relevant Oracle contacts. We have set one hour and 15 minutes aside in the agenda for Speed Meeting, so you will not be missing part of the program. Once a meeting has been confirmed (for a meeting to be booked, the receiver of the booking must confirm), you will be able to add it to your Outlook calendar.Please be aware that your meeting invitations from others unfortunately could end up in your company SPAM filter by mistake. If this is the case, please check your mail regularly.

To your benefit we have split up the different meeting topics and placed them into meetings zones onsite (with the same name as the topics). That’s why we are asking you to choose a meeting topic when you do your booking. Please pay attention to which meeting zone(s) your meetings will be in. You will be informed about this in your confirmation of the booking.

Should you be unsure about which zone to go to, you are always welcome to ask at the Information desk onsite.

If you have any further questions about the Speed Meeting Booking Tool, please do not hesitate to contact .

We are looking forward to seeing you at Courtyard by Marriott on the 30th January!

We hope you had the opportunity to join in and watch the first episode from the brand new series In Touch, discussing the Cloud programs and engaging in the Cloud conversation.

Hosted by David Callaghan, Senior Vice President of EMEA Alliance & Channels, In Touch is designed to bring you up to date with the latest OPN news and trends.

Within this episode, In Touch refreshed our understanding of the five Cloud programmes and explored how you, as our partner, could be engaging in its multi-entry and hybrid capabilities. For more details, visit the Oracle Cloud Knowledge Zone for Partners here.

David and his team also focused on the key highlights. Discussing the substantial increase in OMMs and why this has resulted in a greater number of tracked approvals in the past quarter.

It is not all about facts and figures though. David and his team highlighted examples where partners are specifically driving opportunity from ‘Apps to Disk’, demonstrating that partners truly are at the centre of Oracle.

The latest episode is now ready to watch on-demand.


So, what is different about In Touch?
In Touch is interactive. David wants to hear from you! If you did not get the opportunity to get your question answered by David and his team, remember you can tweet
