Reasons to Be There

Attending the annual COLLABORATE conference is one of the most talked about experiences each year. The anticipation builds during the months leading up to the event. 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:

Solve a problem. 

Everyone is talking about the cloud. But not all organizations are in a position to make a sweeping transition to cloud solutions. Maintaining existing ERP systems is still a reality for many. 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.). 

Plan for the future. 

Speaking of cloud, there are more than 400 cloud-related sessions at COLLABORATE 17. Many of these explore how Oracle customers have already extended functionality with cloud solutions or present the key considerations – pros and cons – for helping you plan a move to the cloud. Use the convenient Agenda Builder to browse cloud education sessions and add them to your educational itinerary.

Stay on top of important changes.
