Oracle Keynote: Oracle Cloud: Strategy and Vision for the Journey to Cloud

Although it seems as though the cloud is everywhere today, the fact is that the overwhelming majority of companies are still in the early stages of their journeys to cloud. In this dynamic and insightful presentation, Steve explains how a confluence of factors is changing the requirements for what a modern cloud must deliver. He'll outline the importance of building personalized paths to cloud, using customer stories to show how companies can begin to transform their organizations from any starting point.

IBM Keynote: How Blockchain, Quantum Computing and Cognitive Will Impact Your World

It seems that as fast as we deliver new apps and functionality for our businesses, the platforms and requirements change. But emerging technologies such as Blockchain, Cognitive and Quantum Computing will do more than change our businesses. They will transform industries and create their own ecosystems.

The key is understanding how these transformations will impact you, your business and your industry. And the projects, apps and code that your IT and development teams are working with. It is not just about playing in sandboxes and building castles made of sand. It is about taking these new technologies and delivering something tangible today.

We are on the cusp of a vital transformation, and the future of JD Edwards is in the Cloud. How can your organization thrive with JD Edwards going forward? What does the ERP of the future look like? Join us for a fun filled session - which we promise will be 'super'- and learn directly from a CIO how simple and fast migrating to the Public Cloud can be. We will be joined by the Oracle product team, who will dispel myths with exciting news about the future of JDE and how you can have choice and control in your journey to the Cloud.

Inundated with 'Cloud' and SaaS application messaging many PeopleSoft customers relegate Cloud technologies as solely a future consideration not applicable to their current licensed PeopleSoft applications. This session covers a number of Cloud and internet technologies and solutions customers can and should leverage today with their current PeopleSoft environments.
