Going Mobile with Oracle: Oracle's Platform and Application
Suhas Uliyar, VP Mobile Strategy Product Management, Oracle Corporation

Among today’s enterprises, 87% have a formal mobility strategy at the enterprise or unit level, yet 7 in 10 are struggling to keep pace with new mobile devices and systems. Every organization has some level of tactical mobile implementation, yet the cost associated with spending on mobile devices is expected to grow 54% over the next two years. So what's next? How should enterprises approach mobility? In this session, hear from Oracle’s vice president of mobile strategy about how enterprises are transforming their digital business with a mobile-first strategy: bringing together clients, context, content, and the cloud. In this session, learn how the Oracle Mobile Platform can help you rethink mobility and define your enterprise mobile strategy.

Acedirector.jpg Mia Urman, AuraPlayer

More of your users are beginning to demand mobile solutions, so this session will guide you on how to build your enterprise mobility strategy. We will take you through the journey of how to evolve from legacy systems to the Oracle Mobile Platform. The challenge is to build an app that has all the bells and whistles of a cutting-edge mobile app, including gestures control, visualization, camera, and notifications, but is also backed by existing legacy business logic (Database/Oracle Forms) as a web service. We will take you through the development process, from defining the mobile task flows and business processes to developing the web services and designing the UI.

Everyone is talking about mobile business intelligence (sometimes called Business Analytics Anywhere). Before your CEO or CFO asks you to put reports on his or her iPad, make sure you have a solution in mind. Luckily, Oracle has two really good mobile answers: OBIEE Mobile Analytics and Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting. In this session, you will be shown both possible solutions. You will leave understanding the benefits of both and the basics of how to implement. If you want to see analytics on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, come hear about the best current solutions available.

Mobile Application Development with APEX: A Real-World and Local Example
Youssef Antar, Director of Technology Applications, Prince George's County Public Schools

The Prince George’s County Schools system was faced with quite a challenge: mobile-enable its student information application quickly and within budget. Both students and parents alike needed to be able to access the system, so it had to support all types of mobile devices. With a little research, the logical solution for PGCPS became obvious: Oracle APEX. With Oracle APEX, not only was PGCPS able to rapidly prototype mobile applications, but it was also able to take advantage of extensive knowledge in Oracle and PL/SQL.  

This session will outline the decision-making process PGCPS used in selecting Oracle APEX for its mobile solution, as well as provide an overview of the application and how it has been successfully deployed.

Applying Security to Your Mobile App: Oracle Security Suite
 Indus Khaitan, Oracle Corporation

Mobile apps are changing how employees interact with their organizations. Productivity is no longer just access to email, but unfettered access to corporate data and files.

In this session, we’ll touch upon how mobile security can be achieved without compromising on productivity and user experience.

We hope you will gain insight on navigating the mobilization process and learn how to use the new generation of Oracle tools to extend existing systems and mobilize your enterprise applications.

 UX Is Not UI
Acedirector.jpg John King, King Training Resources

With the explosion of mobile apps, UX (user experience) garners more attention with each passing day. Sadly, applications often focus on the user interface (UI) rather than solving the problems faced by the application user. UX is the formulation of a strategy to provide a solution; UI is simply a small (but important) part of the overall solution. UX design focuses on a strategy to help the user accomplish a task directly and simply. This session will highlight the important facets of UX design and help attendees create more useful applications.

4:00 pm           Keynote
