Educate to Accelerate:

Lessons learned from real-world cloud migrations

OAUG17 eNews CHipp

While some OAUG members indicate that their migration to Oracle cloud apps is still in the distance, they are increasingly interested and watchful regarding cloud solutions and strategies.

Oracle’s announcement last week of its new “Soar to the Cloud” automated cloud migration solution may accelerate some of our plans. With its built-in transition assistance, “Soar to the Cloud” was introduced by Oracle’s Larry Ellison as the easiest and “the last update you’ll ever do.”

Our community members are already fielding questions and facilitating discussions about Oracle’s announcement. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear some of the questions and discussions surface during the OAUG Cloud Week educational webinar series, July 9-13. The opening panel discussion is an interactive session that looks at lessons learned from real-world implementations and invites audience questions. Be our guest; the panel discussion is open to everyone. The additional 20 webinar sessions take a lessons-learned, case-study approach to examining what others have experienced through the selection process, the migration journey and the ROI review.

OAUG Cloud Week packs a lot of information into five days of education. Use your OAUG member login to gain exclusive access to all the sessions. And why not get the most from this opportunity by sharing with your team to maximize the learning and the value of your OAUG membership?
