It’s one of our favorite times of the year! A time to connect with new and old faces in the Oracle realm at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco!

Unlike previous years, summer is still going strong here in Chicago, so we’re hoping to cool off in the Bay Area as we network with peers and learn what’s new and upcoming in the industry!

From Sunday’s Welcome Keynote to the last lunch on Thursday, we hope you drop by at any of the special events, at our booth #4107, or at one of our many informative sessions.

We hope to see you there!

Free Webinar! Driving Transformation with Oracle Cloud IaaS: An IT Value Platform

Driving Transformation with Oracle Infrastructure-as-a-Service-ThumbnailBest-of-breed SaaS and cloud-enabled business solutions have created islands of efficiencies, but have driven the adoption of multi-platform strategies. This, in turn, has forced enterprises to build bridges and process controls, shifting focus toward a fragmented approach, focusing on platform integration, SaaS adoption, data management, and process orchestration.

In today’s emerging era of business process transformation, enabling a Cloud backbone is imperative. Eliminate the fragmented approach and enable your organization to focus on delivering an IT Value Platform.  Oracle’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provides state-of-the-art cloud technologies to support Software-as-a-Service and on-premise software solutions.

Join us on Thursday, September 21 at 1 PM CDT for a free Webinar, as AST shares its success stories on cloud migration, including aspects of approach, risk mitigation, measuring transformation outcomes, and key strategies/considerations for a successful Cloud Transformation Journey.
