Didn’t make it to HRTechConf this year? Not to worry, as we got it covered – Oracle exhibited this year at HRTechConf and it was a raging success.
Our booth space was located in central proximity of the giant, busy exhibit hall – a huge plus when trying to get from one session to another. We kicked off the evening Sunday to delighted booth visitors with tons of freebies and happy Oracle staff providing attendees with information on upcoming in-booth activities, mobile demo sessions, #awesomenewtechnologies showcase and larger customer sessions taking place.
Monday morning attendees poured in as the Keynote ended to our hands-on “Mobile Lab” in the demo hall – lab participants took time out of their busy morning and afternoon schedules to spend one hour listening to our Demo lead providing step by step instructions on how to engage the HCM applications via specific user scenarios. Each participant in the audience received their own iPad device making it easy and comfortable to understand. And when I nudged a few attendees to for insight on their hands-on experience they said they most enjoyed: the easy to use, intuitive user-interface of the applications, the functional ability to have each area of the Talent Management lifecycle be integrated within one complete system, and being able to poll real-time!
Meanwhile at the booth, we had our expert thought leaders, Marketers and Product Experts presenting live every 30 minutes covering HR industry trends, challenges and providing attendees best practices as they gear up for how to answer those tough questions once they return to the busy HR life. Topics ranged from recruiting in today's digital age, talent scarcity challenges, how to best engage your workforce in the time of talent revolution, building your talent brand and more. These sessions were designed to help out busy HR leaders with thoughtful advice that would follow in their tough HR decisions.

Oracle was selected as one of the 6 vendors to present at the #AwesomeNewTechnologies Session on Tuesday morning where Gretchen Alarcon, Group VP of HCM Applications, showcased the Learning Cloud product -- Oracle Learning Cloud debuted earlier this year at Oracle’s HCM World Customer event in DC. Oracle’s Learning Cloud truly reinvents knowledge-sharing and sets a vision for the LMS enterprise space. Oracle’s Learning Cloud is social, intelligent, collaborative enabling teams to load, share and consume content so that they can build on their strengths with relevant, timely information. The Learning Cloud will be featured in greater detail at the upcoming HCM Central showcases at Oracle OpenWorld. Live demo sessions of the Learning Cloud were also conducted later that day for participants who may have missed the earlier session by Gretchen.
Folks also lined up at the booth on Monday for a face-to-face with author Ray Wang and receive a complimentary signed copy of his latest book, Disrupting Digital Business.
And lastly, Oracle customers engaged HRTech conference attendees with their personal stories of business transformation during conference sessions. Marriott spoke about their first-hand experience pioneering "mobile apply" in the hospitality industry, National Instrument presented a session focused the technological aspects of journeying to the Cloud as well as their key learnings of a self-configured HCM platform. And AXA Technologies shared insights of their HCM Cloud selection process as well as implementation steps in modernizing their HR systems and capabilities.
