Meet Your Oracle Speakers at COLLABORATE 18


Connect with the people behind the products for the answers and advice you need. Hundreds of Oracle representatives are attending COLLABORATE 18: Technology and Applications for the Oracle Community, April 22-26, 2018, in Las Vegas, in order to collaborate with you! Here are just some of the opportunities planned so you can connect and learn from each other:

  • Oracle Keynote: Oracle Cloud – How to Build Your Own Personalized Path to Cloud
    Steve Daheb, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud
    Companies today have three sometimes conflicting mandates: modernize and innovate while reducing costs. The right cloud platform has the potential to address all three, but migrating isn’t always as easy as it sounds. That’s because everyone’s needs are unique, and cookie-cutter approaches just don’t work. Steve Daheb, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud, shares real-world examples of how the Oracle Cloud Platform makes it possible to develop your own unique path to cloud from wherever you choose — SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS. Learn how Oracle’s Autonomous Cloud Platform repairs, secures and drives itself, allowing you to reduce cost and risk, while at the same time delivering greater insights into your organization.

  • Meet the Oracle Experts for Personalized Attention

Meet the Oracle Experts sessions are informal discussions where you can investigate your specific business, IT strategy and planning needs with Oracle, and Oracle welcomes your comments and experiences.
