Oracle Cloud – How to Build Your Own Personalized Path to Cloud

Companies today have three sometimes conflicting mandates: modernize and innovate, while reducing costs. The right cloud platform has the potential to address all three, but migrating isn't always as easy as it sounds. That's because everyone's needs are unique, and cookie-cutter approaches just don't work. The Oracle Cloud Platform makes it possible to develop your own unique path to cloud from wherever you choose - SaaS, PaaS or IaaS. Learn how Oracle's Autonomous Cloud Platform repairs, secures and drives itself, allowing you to reduce cost and risk, while at the same time delivering greater insights into your organization. Hear how your colleagues have designed their own journeys to cloud.

How will they impact us beyond automation? In what way will they affect (or disrupt) how we work, the type of work we do and if we even have work? Can we gain control over business process at a level that has no precedence in the past? The increasing intelligence and collaboration already entering the market are beginning to shift our organizational roles – to blend IT and business and allow us to acquire knowledge and manage information in an entirely new way. Join the keynote session by Canon, a leader in digital imaging solutions, consistently ranked in the top 3 in U.S. patents, to hear unique perspectives on how AI and Robotics will shape the future.
