Reasons to Be There

And, the post-event storytelling and sharing is equally as spirited. Here are some of the things Oracle Applications users are looking to accomplish this year:

COLLABORATE 17 offers hundreds of sessions that focus on upgrading or enhancing existing implementations. Plus, you'll be able to meet management from the OracleDigital License Team that supports all customers that continue to invest in on-premises license applications (PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, EBS, etc.).
