New: Oracle Keynote

For those organizations considering the cloud, Steve Daheb, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud PaaS and IaaS, offers an insightful keynote on Wednesday, April 5. According to Steve, “Although it seems as though the cloud is everywhere today, the fact is that the overwhelming majority of companies are still in the early stages of their journeys to cloud.” In this dynamic and insightful presentation, he explains how a confluence of factors is changing the requirements for what a modern cloud must deliver. He’ll outline the importance of building personalized paths to cloud, using customer stories to show how companies can begin to transform their organizations from any starting point.
