What’s Ahead at Oracle OpenWorld 2013

OOW Logo The flagship Oracle OpenWorld conference each year in San Francisco is recognized for attracting tens of thousands of highly qualified and influential attendees from more than 140 countries. With a focus on key current and future Oracle technologies and solutions, attendees converge at the conference because they are serious about educating themselves and having a good time as well.

The approach with Oracle OpenWorld is simple. Each year for one week in San Francisco, Oracle executives and staff members meet with customers and partners for an exchange of information that enables them to get up-to-date on the technology, products, and services currently offered by Oracle, as well as learn about product roadmaps, and gain perspective and insight into industry trends and emerging issues.

Featuring keynotes by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and Oracle president Mark Hurd that set the direction for the coming year, right through to the closing sessions, Oracle OpenWorld 2013 will be packed with product announcements, presentations by executives from leading companies, live demos, labs, peer networking at lounges and pavilions, opportunities to engage with representatives from trusted Oracle user groups, and live entertainment by top performers.

A new services track features Oracle education, consulting, and support offerings and expertise.

Oracle’s expanding lines of software, hardware, and services fueled by organic product growth as well as strategic acquisitions mean that this year’s OpenWorld promises more educational tracks and sessions, focused on more topics, for more kinds of attendees, than ever before. This year’s Oracle OpenWorld will provide technology and business tracks focused on all of Oracle’s major product areas, including applications, databases, middleware, developer tools, enterprise management, servers and storage, virtualization, operating systems, engineered systems, and industries.

In addition, this year, a new services track features Oracle education, consulting, and support offerings and expertise both on premises and in the cloud. From cloud to commerce, social to supply chain, security to scalability, big data to business analytics, this year’s conference will provide insights and education to help you simplify your IT infrastructure, lower costs and risk, compete more effectively, deliver extreme satisfaction to your customers, and advance your career.
