UKOUG Applications Conference & Exhibition 2017

5 Reasons to Attend the UK Oracle User Group Conference, Apps17


By Debra Lilley, Conference Lead, Apps17

The UK Oracle User Group conference, Apps17, is the largest independent gathering of Applications professionals in the UK. Looking for a reason to attend? Here are five reasons why you should book your place right now:

Apps17 is your invaluable opportunity to learn what other Oracle professionals are doing with Applications, the challenges they’re facing and the solutions they’re working on.

We welcome Oracle users from all over the UK and further afield, to network, share experiences and pick up useful tips and techniques.

Each day features a great mix of presentations and roundtable events across every product line, discussing practical ways to help you extract the most value from your Oracle investment.

It’s a positive and friendly forum for you to talk Oracle and network with your peers, including our 80s themed social on Tuesday evening.

Our keynote address is from Steve Daheb, Senior Vice President for Oracle Cloud. He’ll discuss how to scale for innovation and manage the journey to cloud without being overwhelmed, using real-world customer success stories that will resonate no matter what size your business.

Moreover, you’ll hear from other senior Oracle product managers who will deliver specific keynotes for your application community. These are supported by further sessions, where Oracle experts and independent professionals will take you into the detail.

You also have access to a dedicated Business Analytics stream crossing both Apps17 and Tech17, packed with sessions on strategy, analysis and business intelligence solutions.

Steve Daheb - Senior Vice President for Oracle Cloud 

Oracle is an enormous organisation to navigate, and Apps17 is your unique chance to meet Oracle management, to discuss the challenges you’re facing alongside other users, to make your voice heard and influence the future of the Applications.

It really is a dialogue, formed through keynote sessions, Q&A panels, roundtables and hands-on sessions, where individual users become a single customer with a big voice.

Don’t just take our word for it - Jeremy Ashley, Group Vice President of user experience recently shared that Oracle’s insight into what users want has been significantly shaped by conversations at this conference, and especially by those members taking part every year.

Apps17 is unique. Not only will you hear Oracle’s product management sharing their individual roadmaps for the future, following Oracle OpenWorld 2017, but also you will receive expert, independent analysis about the significance of those announcements for today’s business users.

We’re also running sessions on Chatbots and Blockchain, two of the hottest new technologies, and how Oracle is using them in Applications.

Remember, our conference isn’t a marketing event - it’s the only place where you can learn about Oracle’s future plans and how they will practically impact your business.

Oracle isn’t just about one product. It’s about a whole ecosystem and making everything work together, often with legacy non-Oracle products.

Again, Apps17 is a great opportunity to learn by hearing what others have done. For example, London Borough of Brent is hosting a session on how it added budgeting to existing systems, while DHL is sharing its experience of running core HCM Cloud co-existent with on-premise applications.

You also won’t want to miss what will be a very popular series of sessions about supporting your systems, including working with Oracle support, plus presentations on understanding the implications of GDPR and more.

We look forward to meeting you.
