For those of you in Europe, we’ve got our OpenWorld London conference happening Feb. 12 and 13 at ExCeL in the heart of London's Royal Docks.  It will be a great opportunity for you to hear the latest about Oracle’s enterprise solutions, network with other executives, and learn how Oracle is innovating in the cloud.

A big emphasis at our OpenWorld events is giving you an opportunity to hear from other companies on the lessons they’ve learned in moving to the Oracle Cloud.  For OpenWorld London, we’ve got 2 great manufacturers speaking. Mecalac is a European manufacturer of construction equipment including excavators and loaders and will be talking about the added flexibility and scalability they’ve achieved in the Oracle Cloud. Amtrol-Alfa is Europe's largest manufacturer of gas cylinders and will be speaking about their successful adoption of Oracle Manufacturing Cloud.
