Oracle Open World 2016

Oracle Open World 2016 – the leading event on all things Oracle – returns to San Francisco on 18 September. With attendees coming from all corners of the world, Oracle Open World is truly the event to attend if you are an Oracle customer, vendor, employee or simply a technology enthusiast. And if you happen to be a mega fan of Multi-GRAMMY award-winning artists Sting and/or Gwen Stefani, you might also like to attend as they will both be taking to the stage at this prestigious event.

Global software company Oracle is a leading provider of applications and databases to more than 420,000 customers across 145 countries around the world. As per its rivals SAP, Amazon and Microsoft, Oracle is looking to expand on its cloud services and be the number one vendor in the world, beating Salesforce.com in the Software-as-a-service (SaaS) market.

Robin Miller, Oracle Specialist Recruiter, Provanis (a Networkers brand) has attended the event for the past three years and is looking forward to attending once more:

“Oracle Open World is a unique platform to hear about the latest advances in software technology and be amongst fellow Oracle enthusiasts from around the world. As a specialist recruiter, I attend not only to improve my technical knowledge but also to really understand where the market is heading and the skills that employers will need to implement new technologies.”

In recent years, the market has shifted from on-premise to cloud applications and with Oracle Cloud reporting growth of 77% in the first quarter of this year, the movement towards cloud shows no sign of stopping. This is a trend which Robin is seeing amongst many companies:

“In the space of just three years that I have attended this event, I have witnessed the move from on-premise to cloud, going from a concept all the way through to post implementation. With this shift in operational preferences, I have seen a change in employer requirements for technical staff who have knowledge of cloud and the skills to implement, monitor and develop cloud-based systems.”

But what can attendees expect from this year’s anticipated event?

As ever, there are limitless opportunities for visiting exhibitions to see product demonstrations, attending training sessions and hearing from key speakers from across the world of Oracle. This year, there are more than 2,500 sessions to choose from, which provides each attendee with a unique experience of the event which is truly tailored to their needs.

There is also the chance to hear from the Oracle leaders on their future plans, which Robin is especially looking forward to:

“I’m particularly interested in hearing the key notes from Larry Ellison (founder and CTO), Mark Hurd (CEO) and Safra Catz (co-CEO). I’m also keen to understand what issues customers are facing around Oracle fusion and cloud implementation and how this differs for customers who have adopted Oracle E-Business Suite.”

Set in the picturesque cityscape of San Francisco, this year’s Oracle Open World event promises to be the best yet. If you’re attending the event and you’d like to meet up with Robin for an informal chat about our recruitment solutions please get in touch.
