Oracle Cloud: Modernize and Innovate on Your Journey to the Cloud [GEN1229]
By Steve Daheb, Vice President, Oracle Cloud, Erik Dvergsnes, Architect, Aker BP, and Michael Morales, CEO/Managing Partner, Quality Metrics Partner
Companies today have three sometimes conflicting mandates: modernize, innovate, AND reduce costs. The right cloud platform can address all three, but migrating isn’t always as easy as it sounds because everyone’s needs are unique, and cookie-cutter approaches just don’t work. Oracle Cloud Platform makes it possible to develop your own unique path to the cloud however you choose—SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS. Learn how Oracle Autonomous Cloud Platform Services automatically repairs, secures, and drives itself, allowing you to reduce cost and risk while at the same time delivering greater insights and innovation for your organization. In this session learn from colleagues who found success building their own unique paths to the cloud.
Location: Moscone West, Room 2002
Time: 12:30 p.m.–1:15 p.m.
