Oracle OpenWorld Streams: Just Go with the Flow

Oracle OpenWorld exists to help you learn, network, and share information. And we appreciate all the information you share with us to help us improve the conference and enable us to better meet your needs.

Through our most recent surveys and polls, we've learned that you like having more sessions to choose from, you like extended Oracle Exhibition Hall hours, and you love all the networking opportunities. But we've also heard that this vast array of interaction opportunities can get confusing--so this year we've streamlined the event format to make your experience more connected, and ultimately more beneficial.

When we say streamlined, we're not kidding. This year's content is literally divided into four "streams": Applications, Industries, Middleware, and Database.

All the sessions for any given stream will be located in the same area, so you can easily get from one session to the next. Every stream will have its own lounge area, to make it convenient to meet and network with experts and peers who share your interests. And each stream will host a General Session where top Oracle executives and Partner executives will share their product road maps and the latest strategy in their area of expertise.

We always want to hear more about what you think, what you want, what's working, and where we can still improve. Join Oracle Mix and make yourself heard. Or chime in right here, right now by adding a comment to the blog. Ready to dive in? Then register now to get the early bird rates and get the conversation started.

And be sure to come back soon and often for discussions on how you can suggest and vote on Oracle OpenWorld session topics, who our Conference Partners are this year and what they have to share, and a whole lot more.

Thanks. Good idea to post survey feedback. Will share more shortly. Regarding Oracle's investment in OpenWorld, we spend 10s of millions of $ on the conference, but the most significant investment is really the people resources, not only Oracle's, but our partners as well. If we could equate it in man-hours (or woman-hours :-) it would exceed 300,000 hours just from set-up to tear-down. And there are a lot of hours that go into it before we even get on-site. Great question!
