March 2014

As part of its commitment to developing best in class, industry-specific business solutions and helping customers successfully transform their businesses, Oracle is launching a new leadership event, Oracle Industry Connect, scheduled for March 25-26, 2014 in Boston.


“We are pleased to offer this event to help build a community in which today’s industry innovators can share deep domain expertise, offer fresh ideas about accelerating transformation in their specific business sector, and exchange technology and leadership best practices,” said Bob Weiler, executive vice president, Global Business Units, Oracle.

As you prep for the event, learn about how trends such as the growth of cross-border operations and the rise of handheld devices are changing how executives manage projects in a variety of industries – and find out about technology you can leverage to lead your own projects successfully.

The EPPM Board Weighs In on Top Industry Controversies
A new report from Oracle’s Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) Board in North America directly tackles two critical issues that have divided the project portfolio community for years. The first is whether organizations are best served by a central project management office (PMO) or by a decentralized approach that distributes project management responsibilities among individual business units. The second flashpoint is the rise of mobility among EPPM professionals and whether senior executives should encourage this trend. Manufacturing Today—Innovation and Operational Excellence
Manufacturers that survived the difficult economy over the last few years now face a more competitive environment where they must do more with less to win. They will have to optimize dwindling experienced resources, choose projects wisely for improved financial results, and better manage risk to deliver on time in order to thrive. How will you innovate, evolve, and compete to win in this new normal global marketplace?
