Cloud technology and big data are the key focus areas at this year’s edition of Oracle Day set for Friday October 12th at Safari Park Hotel.
With the theme “Your Vision, Engineered”, the day will bring a selection of announcements and interactive education sessions from Oracle OpenWorld, the most important technology event on the Oracle calendar that took place in San Francisco last week.
“Cloud, mobile, social, and big data are changing the way business is done,” said Gurhan Kalelioglu, Vice President Oracle Turkey, Central Asia and Africa. “The objective of Oracle Days is to give line managers the information and insight to help them embrace these technologies.”
The latest product and service offerings from Oracle include Customer Experience which involves harnessing the power of the social network as well as internal resources to maximize customer retention, improve operational efficiency and accelerate new customer acquisition.
Oracle has also expanded its Cloud services portfolio as adoption continues to grow aggressively with more than 10,000 customers and more than 25 million users worldwide already relying on the services each day.
The technologies discussed at Oracle Days will demonstrate that Oracle takes a fundamentally different approach to delivering technology engineered to work together.
Oracle Day will include customer testimonials and expert sessions, and live demos of new products.
