Seeing is believing!

Dear Oracle Partners,

Oracle Database 12c includes extraordinary features to help customers reach new levels of availability, performance, security and manageability while reducing capital and operational expenses. Many customers are already enjoying those benefits, but others are still evaluating the benefits to be obtained versus the cost of change.

Now partners have the opportunity to access a complete Oracle Database 12c environment as an Oracle Cloud Service, where you can show your customer all the new features of Oracle Database 12c in action. Customers can test their applications in this environment and see by themselves the benefits that they will obtain.

Oracle is running a webcast for EMEA partners on June 3rd, 2016 at 10:00 am UK / 11:00 am CEST / 12:00 pm Moscow / 13:00 pm Dubai to explain the details of this program.
