What Should I Submit?

We’re looking for presentations from Oracle customers, partners and experts on all areas of the application and technology stack. In 2019, special attention will be given to the following business outcomes:

Multi-layered Security Planning

Security has become a top concern for almost all industries and business sizes, but too many organizations continue to segment their security strategy, planning their defenses within the silos of previous business structures and by unit. Learn why it's important to develop a larger vision for your organization's security strategy, and how to implement it from your infrastructure up to your application. You'll also learn about important security design strategies for managing employees, customers and partners.

Optimizing Your On-premise Applications

Companies have invested in buying and installing a multitude of business applications that run within their own data centers and, for a variety of reasons, want to continue to run these applications where they currently reside. For these companies “faster, better, with more innovation, cheaper” have been and remain management’s mantra. This focus area highlights how companies can achieve these objectives through better configuration, inventive utilization of new features, and management of their existing installations.

Emerging Technologies

Every day there's another news story about IoT, Blockchain, AI, Machine Learning - a whole host of new opportunities and new challenges. If you're wondering what these technologies mean to your day, you're not alone. In these sessions, we'll help to dig through the buzzwords and get to a real definition of how these technologies work, and how they're changing your day and your business.

PaaS for SaaS

With so many organizations incorporating SaaS applications, the need to plan for the evolution and optimization of those systems is coming to the forefront of technology roadmapping. The ability to quickly and seamlessly extend your existing SaaS implementation, or to manage application platforms in a hybrid environment provides a competitive edge over other companies, and the ability to rapidly spin up and spin down applications with confidence in their security is paramount. As the need for SaaS applications continues to grow, make sure you're ready to support it!
