In major cities around the world, exclusive networks of hundreds of Oracle Communications customers gather each year to help shape the future direction of the Oracle Communications Product Suite. At these Customer Advisory Board (CAB) events, customers get direct access to experts in the Oracle Communications product teams, building relationships that help align and accelerate product innovation and implementation.
Customers also engage in conversations and build relationships with peers — one of most unique aspects of CAB being the camaraderie and the ability to share individual experiences along with views of technology and business evolution.
“CAB is a great platform where we get to meet the communities that are using similar types of products. It’s great to interact with peers who have similar domain knowledge and to be able to talk to them to see if they face similar challenges,” says SiriusXM’s Dalbir Gambhir, senior director, application development. “Also, we get to meet the oracle team that is working on innovation and advancement of products and processes.”
Vittal Cooduvalli, senior director, application platform operations at Charter Communications also values the intimate sessions with Oracle experts: “The product sessions have been very valuable on two faces - one, in trying to understand the roadmap, and two, to correlate it to what we do in our business.”
If you are interested in this unique experience of relationship building and having direct access to product and industry experts, you are welcome to join the Oracle Communications Customer Advisory Board meetings coming this spring:
The theme for both CABs will be “smart ecosystems,” with agendas that delve into areas such as 5G, IoT, Network Slices, SD-WAN, SaaS, Security, and Analytics. Agendas span functional and business innovations along with security aspects of building these ecosystems. Agendas also include discussions of the roles CSPs and enterprises can play in these innovations.
Subject matter experts and customers will have deep discussions about integrated network and cloud infrastructure, systems, software, and applications and how to leverage analytics, AI and ML. The goal is to help customers and partners build more personalized, seamless, and secure digital experiences for their subscribers.
Breakout sessions will be organized in tracks focused on Enterprise Communications, Monetization, Orchestration, RODOD, Digital Business Experience, Session Delivery and Signaling (Spanning 3G, 4G, 5G). There will be deep dives on upcoming features, functionality, and use-cases. Also find out what’s up and coming in demonstrations taking place during networking breaks.
