Inside the OOW Session: 5 Easy Steps to Modernizing Business Applications

Let’s face it – our applications map in the company isn’t clean. We have multiple applications, some homegrown, some acquired, a few other purchased. Chances are there is some overlap in what these applications do for us. We are in a constant state of motion with our applications. Add to that changing business needs, technology disruption with social, mobile, analytics and big data and the ever-evolving regulatory landscape, and we are far from achieving Nirvana with our applications infrastructure.

The question then is how do you extend your applications and enhance the value you provide to your application users, especially customers without having to sneak in brittle customizations within your applications and adding to your application development, maintenance and upgrade cycles?

5 steps! Yes, at Oracle OpenWorld next week, we will walk you through 5 easy steps to modernizing your existing business applications to meet your evolving business needs without having to re-code your applications. Make sense of it all in a scalable, sustainable way.

To prove it, we will have Fred Stern from Flextronics joining us on stage to discuss his very successful implementation and the business impact of doing it the AppAdvantage way.

Join Fred Stern, my colleague - Ajay Khanna and I at Oracle OpenWorld as we discuss this some more. Be sure to add this session to your Schedule Builder.
