Oracle OpenWorld was great this year! By the numbers - 60,000+ attendees, 18 million+ online views, thousands of sessions with speakers from over 90 countries.
A couple of key observations:
When compared to OpenWorld 2016, we really noticed an improvement in cloud functionality for the products Redstone re-sells and implements. Kudos to the Oracle Product Management teams!
The consolidation of Oracle PartnerNetwork activities within the Marriott Marquis made collaboration and learning much easier!
Larry Ellison’s keynote introducing the Oracle Autonomous Database was extremely timely, as it came on the heels of the Equifax data breach. The world’s first ‘self-driving’ database is sure to make a significant impact as it will reassure Executives that critical patches have been applied in a timely fashion.
