The Oracle Day event took place in Toronto yesterday at the Hyatt Regency Hotel downtown. Attendance was excellent and it was standing room only at the keynote sessions. Anytime the venue has to bring in chairs to handle the overflow crowd, you know there is a lot of interest!
This year, WebCenter was featured prominently as part of the Fusion Middleware session track. What was interesting to see was just how many customers are interested in consolidating and simplifying their existing infrastructure. So many companies are still struggling with information silos such as file shares, SharePoint Sites and a myriad of departmental or process-centric repositories. Naturally, these get more and more expensive to manage over time so there is a high level of interest in reducing the size, scope and cost of this infrastructure. When companies see how they can use Fusion Middleware and related technologies to integrate with WebCenter Content, Imaging and other solutions to centralize content delivery across business applications, they quickly realize that there are significant cost savings to be had.
Oracle Day Events are happening all over the world and there is likely going to be one near you. To check out the full list and to register, visit the Event page here.
