The Performance Architects Guide to Events and Happenings at Oracle OpenWorld 2017

Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) (Oracle’s annual conference that draws over 60,000 attendees to learn about Oracle products and services) is just a few weeks away, and the Performance Architects team wants to make sure that you’re up to speed on what we think are some of the “can’t miss” events and sessions at the conference! Unfortunately, I will not be making it to San Francisco this year but several of my team members will be in attendance.

OOW starts with SIG & Geo Sunday and if you are arriving over the weekend be sure to attend the Special Interest Group (SIG) and regional group sessions from key Oracle associations such as Oracle Application Users Group (OAUG)Oracle Developer Tools Users Group (ODTUG), and Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG).  The Performance Architects team is heavily involved in facilitating many of these meetings.  For example, our own Kirby Lunger will be leading the “OAUG Oracle Big Data and Business Intelligence SIG Meeting [SIG1611]” at 12:45 PM and from there, she will go right into the “OAUG Endeca SIG Meeting [SIG1076]” meeting at 3:45 PM. Performance Architects’ Chuck Persky will be heading up the “OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG Meeting” [SIG1278] meeting at 1:45 PM. We are also heavily involved in coordinating the “New England OAUG Meeting [SUN6395]” at 9:45 AM (I sit on the board for the group).

We also have a session that we are co-presenting with one of our clients.  Join us as we discuss Boston Biomedical’s evolution from budgeting, forecasting, and planning in spreadsheets to an automated, secure planning process and solution using Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service. Meet us on Wednesday, October 4th at 11:00 AM for our “Transforming Finance at Boston Biomedical Using Oracle [CON2217]” session!

As always, Performance Architects is hosting a special, invite-only event at the conference! If you’re interested in catching up with us in person, please send us a note at communications@performancearchitects.com and we’ll send you more information.

Lastly, be sure to attend CloudFest.17 on Wednesday, October 4th and dance the night away with The Chainsmokers and Ellie Goulding starting at 7:00 PM. What better way to wrap up Oracle OpenWorld than with your colleagues, under the stars, with two of today’s top entertainers.

Safe travels and see you soon!
