Get Inside the Cloud Application Foundation

By Ruma Sanyal

Four Essential Sessions

Cloud enablement remains an important focus at Oracle OpenWorld, especially middleware infrastructure products that provide the application foundation for your cloud—application server, data grid, and JVM—with more than 30 sessions, 10 demo pods, and 8 hands-on labs to choose from. Can't make it to everything? Start by focusing on these four essential sessions:

  • The Oracle Fusion Middleware Application Server Roadmap—Building a Cloud Application Foundation (Session 15560)
    Monday, Oct. 3, 5:00 p.m.—Moscone South 306
    We kick things off with a roadmap session for attendees who want to know how Oracle is evolving the middleware infrastructure.
  • Java EE and the Cloud (Session 32540)
    Monday, Oct. 3, 7:30 p.m.—Marriott Marquis, Salon 7
    In this Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) session we will discuss the present and future of Java EE as a cloud-enabling platform.
  • Which Cloud Computing Approach Is Right for You? (Session 15198)
    Wednesday, Oct. 5, 10:00 a.m.—Moscone South 306

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.
