Oracle Mobility Spotlight: Join Us At ODTUG Mobile Day!

October 15, 2014

qsdglxnwNow that the chaos of Oracle OpenWorld and the craziness of Kscope15 abstract submissions are behind us, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty of where your Enterprise systems are headed. Mobile development plans are at the forefront of everyone’s minds right now, and if it’s not on your agenda then it’s time to get to work!

Your employees are going mobile, is your business ready?

The statistics of mobile adoption are STAGGERING; Gartner says that 40% of the workforce will be mobile by 2016 with 2/3s using their own personal smartphone. Additionally, Oracle conducted a global study, “Oracle Mobile. Simply Connected” that unearthed some very interesting statistics about mobile in the work place; just because your company has not gone mobile doesn’t mean your employees aren’t using it. The study found that 67% of employees are using personal mobile devices for work purposes. You can read about the full study here. Is your enterprise ready for the technological challenges this revolution will pose to your business?

To stay at the cutting edge of the Oracle development innovations, ODTUG has decided to bring together the world’s leading Oracle ACE’s, ACE Directors and strategists for a full-day, FREE mobile event. The event is titled: “Going Mobile? Where is Oracle Taking You?” and will take place in Reston, VA on December 2, 2014. This event is the first of its kind for ODTUG, being a FREE one day event for members. If you are not an ODTUG member contact us at [email protected]to find out how to receive a FREE pass to this event. This is a formula we hope to replicate with other hot topic areas, such as cloud development, in the future. For those of you who may be worried that you don’t have a mobile strategy yet, don’t panic. I encourage anyone who is planing to introduce mobile systems within the next two years to come and learn how to start planning your next steps. And if that’s you, I suggest registering ASAP because registration is limited to 100 people and is filling up fast.

This event was designed to bring together ALL of the communities, ADF, APEX, BI, and Developers, together under one roof and really drill down into the new products and features that were announced at OOW. The conference will be a full-day packed with sessions dedicated to helping the developer community GO MOBILE. The goal is to help everyone understand the Oracle mobile landscape as a whole, instead of just focusing on individual technologies. We want to help you navigate the mobile jungle, including all of the new product releases (Oracle Mobile Cloud Services [MCS], Mobile Application Framework [MAF], Alta UI, Mobile Application Accelerator [MAX], APEX RESTful Services, BI Mobile App Designer, Oracle Mobile Suite, etc.).

ODTUG has pulled together an all-star lineup (including me for two sessions 🙂 ) of the top experts in each community. Speakers include: Shay Shmeltzer, John King, Edward Roske, Scott Spendolini, Indus Khaitan, Kris Rice and Kevin McGinley. One of the most exciting parts of this event is that Suhas Uliyar, Oracle’s VP of Mobile Strategy and Product Management, is presenting the opening keynote. The day’s closing keynote is being presented by the Oracle A-Team and will feature an end-to-end demo that should be very exciting. And of course the real fun happens after the sessions at a happy hour and networking event 🙂

You can register for the Mobile Day here and do it soon because space is limited!

Stay tuned, ODTUG is hoping to do a mobile road show with events in Europe. The next event is planned to be hosted in Benelux in April 21, 2015.
