PaaS (Platform as a Service)
A few months ago, I wrote an article entitled What is PaaS? And why should HR care? (It’s good background for this conversation.) Platform as a service helps developers rapidly build and deploy rich human capital management (HCM) applications—or extend Oracle HCM Cloud SaaS apps—using an enterprise-grade cloud. Check out the sessions below to learn what it can do for you and your HCM team.
Mobile Hands-On Labs
The adoption of mobile technologies in our personal lives has changed the way we interact and communicate with the world around us. These behaviors have now crossed over into the workplace. Come see how you can deliver the mobile user experience needed for your people to remain engaged and productive, and keep business moving.
While this session will be held multiple times during the conference, there are a limited number of seats and they fill up fast. Use the Schedule Builder to pre-register to guarantee a spot.
Top 3 “Not-to-be-Missed” Sessions
Here are my three picks if you need help narrowing the choices:
Where and When
HCM Central @ OpenWorld will be held once again at the beautiful Palace Hotel. Don’t miss the Oracle Appreciation Event being held Wednesday October 28 from 6:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m., on Treasure Island (buses depart at 6:00 p.m.).
The conference runs from Sunday, October 25 to Thursday, October 29. Make sure you plan to stick around right to the end so you don’t miss out on the great content on the final day of the event.
