A Look Inside the Hospitality Connect Zone at Oracle Industry Connect

Shannon Straub
Field Marketing Specialist

The Oracle Hospitality team recently wrapped up spending three days in New York City for Oracle Industry Connect, Oracle’s premier event for industries.

Filled with sessions about industry trends, breakthrough innovations, the journey to the cloud, and much more, Oracle Industry Connect provided attendees with the opportunity to network with Oracle executive leadership team, strategists, developers, key partners, and peers.

The Connect Zone was an interactive area where attendees were able to network and make those connections. We had a display of Oracle Hospitality products including the Oracle MICROS Tablet 720 Series, Simphony Cloud Point of Sale, OPERA Hotel Property Management Solution, and the Oracle MICROS Workstation 310 Series. Attendees were welcomed to engage in product demonstrations with our staff.

In addition to displaying our products in the Connect Zone, we also had stations set up for 14 of our key partners to display their innovative hospitality solutions. The partners included:

Our partners also sponsored roundtables during lunch on both days of the event. The roundtables focused on various industry topics like self-service kiosk evolution, credit card security, and EMV. They were a great way for attendees to network with peers and our partners, as well as share ideas around key industry subjects.

At Oracle Hospitality, we take pride in our partnerships. Our partner portfolio is very diverse and includes companies that offer solutions for every aspect of a restaurant or hotel operation.

We have recently moved to an open platform strategy across our hospitality solutions portfolio.  The most important step in this paradigm shift is making all our API documentation for Simphony, our Enterprise Back Office, and Opera easily obtainable through simple web search engine query making integration to our products more straightforward, simple, and accessible. This allows our partners to build the innovative integrations that our restaurant and hotel customers want, promptly and efficiently.

Combining the Oracle Hospitality open API strategy with our strong partner portfolio, we can offer a one stop shop for our customers and ensure that they have the means to build the technology solution that is right for their business. 

If you have not heard of the partners listed above, we encourage you to reach out to them, or drop us a line at OracleHosp_ww@oracle.com.
