Oracle OpenWorld 2016 Cloud Services and Products Summary

4 Days (almost 7 for me) of Product Directors and Managers spinning as many plates in the air as humanly possible, all being tossed into the Cloud with a fervor only matched by the lack of compensation being provided for conventional technology stack sales, left me with some specific value-adds for my time spent (not including the Safe Harbor information, we can’t say anything about….sshhhh.)

Note: (I’m EBS-centric and we have very little budget for hardware, so while I was amazed at the new SPARC S7 processors with on-board encryption and J/SQL optimization, alas they didn’t make it into my summary pages this year.)

Oracle OpenWorld 2016 Networking Opportunity Events #OOW16

oow16_bannerWhere I can keep track of the special events (note: these are not “parties” as so many people are misled to believe – you should expect to be contacted by sales and account professionals at each event) at OOW.  To attend one of these events:

  1. You’re registered as an OpenWorld Attendee.
  2. You’re either a prospect, customer, or goodwill contact for the host. That means you actually contact the host and ask to attend before OOW.
  3. You visit the host’s booth at OpenWorld in order to pick up whatever is required for entry and get to know what the host actually does.
  4. Do not just show up at the event and attempt to “crash” it – fair warning. You will be sold Oracle products and consulting, and like it, and start telling all your friends about it and be assimilated.

Visit all those vendors and make them feel welcomed this year!
