OPN Central @ OpenWorld: What’s in it for you?

This year, Oracle invites you to discover the innovation and learning we’ve packed into Oracle OpenWorld. From technology sessions & labs hosted by industry experts and Oracle executives, to partner & exhibitor sessions, we’ve broken down barriers to get you to the source of information, faster. 

With that, we bring you OPN Central @ OpenWorld.

Conference Week Activities

Oracle OpenWorld takes place in San Francisco October 25 – 29. To show our commitment to our partners, Oracle has dedicated Sunday, October 25 to the Oracle PartnerNetwork community. On Sunday afternoon, partners can attend OPN General Sessions that will consist of three separate sessions catering specifically to SI, ISV, and VAR audiences. On Sunday evening, the famed OPN AfterDark Reception is back and open to all partners with a conference badge; no separate registration necessary.

The OPN Lounge will be open during conference week and home to the majority of OPN Central activities. Activities include OPN In Focus sessions – where partners can uncover the tools and resources needed to run a successful business. In addition, partners have a chance to delve into social media consultations at our Social Media Rally Station. This is an opportunity to discover your company’s “social clout” and determine ways to build a stronger online presence. Between your sessions and the conference hustle and bustle, relax in the OPN Lounge and network with members of the OPN Enablement team as well as your peers. 

Also located in the OPN Lounge is the brand new ISV Cloud BarAsk the Experts! Have all of your technical questions answers & your cloud strategy evaluated by our panel of experts throughout the conference week. In addition to the OPN Lounge, Experts will be in Moscone West, the Marriott Marquis and the OPN AfterDark Reception.

Test Fest @ OPN Central is also back for the fifth year in a row and takes place at the Westin St. Francis Hotel. Partners are encouraged to register for an opportunity to earn their Certified Specialist accreditation through one of ten session exams!

Fujitsu Can't Get Enough of OpenWorld

Highlights from Our Marquee Sponsor


If you attended Oracle OpenWorld this year, it's almost certain that you crossed paths with our Marquee sponsor Fujitsu.

On opening night, Fujitsu was announced as the "Oracle Global Industry Partner of the Year" and celebrated the award later that evening as a sponsor of the Oktoberfest-themed Welcome Reception. Bright and early the next morning, Fujitsu's Corporate SVP Noriyuki Toyoki gave a keynote to an enthusiastic crowd. The rest of the week Fujitsu presented sessions on everything from Oracle Fusion Midddleware to SPARC Enterprise servers. And they wrapped things up as a sponsor of the Appreciation Night festivities.

The Fujitsu folks had such a successful conference that they're trying to keep the good times going. Check out Fujitsu-Oracle Central for their recap of the big event. Along with the Fujitsu keynote, they have video interviews from the show floor with Fujitsu customers, product experts, and session presenters. Find out what Mr. Toyoki thought of his first visit to Oracle OpenWorld, why Debra Lilley is honored to be an Oracle ACE, and why Andy Seferta thinks it was a great experience to be a Marquee sponsor.
