Going Mobile? Find Out Where Oracle Is Taking You

Mobile is here. Now. If your organization does not have a mobile strategy then you better get to work!

Don’t be left behind – join ODTUG and the world’s leading APEX, ADF, MAF and BI expert ACE Directors and ACEs for a full-day event dedicated to Oracle's next-generation mobile development, infrastructure, and security solutions taking place December 2 in Reston, Virginia.

Oracle recently released results from a global study with staggering statistics:

  • 1 in 6 employees have found ways to bypass their companies’ IT security and use personal mobile devices for work without their employer knowing
  • Only 18 percent of respondents believe their company effectively controls what can be done on a mobile device
  • 67 percent of workers are using their own personal mobile devices for work
  • 68 percent of workers said they would be happier working in a more mobile and flexible way

Your employees have gone mobile and your organization may be left behind. Join us at ODTUG Mobile Day to learn from the top experts in the field how to implement the latest mobile advancements from the newest technologies, such as Mobile security, Oracle Mobile infrastructure to building BI mobile dashboards to deep dive into APEX security for mobile. Sessions will cross several areas of interest, including Oracle Framework (ADF), APEX, and BI, all focusing on mobile technology applications.

Speakers include:

  • Suhas Uliyar, VP Mobile Strategy Product Management, Oracle Corporation
  • Mia Urman, AuraPlayer
  • Shay Shmeltzer, Oracle Corporation
  • Edward Roske, interRel Consulting
  • Scott Spendolini, Accenture
  • John King, King Training Resources
