Our joint customers will benefit from this new cloud offering by fast time to market, higher availability and flexibility, lower project cost an risks. With hybrid cloud computing Oracle offers a unique value proposition for customer and partners. You can choose where to host your cloud solutions in the data center of your choice. Cloud marketplace gives you as a partner new opportunities to build, deploy and promote and market offerings on the Oracle PaaS Cloud. The new Oracle Cloud Partner Program reflect the focus on cloud computing.

Each conference attendee was granted access to free PaaS demo service before and during the conferences. As an Oracle gold partner or above you can request free PaaS demo services via demo.oracle.com or our partner communities any time – make use of it!

Digital is changing the economy, our joint customers face this challenge, Fusion Middleware & PaaS is the platform you can build new Digital solutions either in the Cloud on on-premises.

We would like to congratulate the annual winners of the Fusion Middleware Partner Community Awards. You will have the opportunity to learn direct from them why they have won the awards. On Tuesday evening during our social event you will have plenty of chance for deep discussion within the community and speakers.

On the second day you can choose between four tracks: SOA & Integration & SOA Cloud Service, BPM & Process Cloud Service & User experience, WebLogic & Java Cloud Service & Engineered Systems & Mobile track & Internet of Things track. We will keep our tradition to wrap up the conference with the legendary ACE demo – special thanks to Lucas Jellema and team!

Thursday and Friday six different hands-on bootcamps take place. During the conference we will also run our Partner Exchange exhibition. Please take the opportunity to talk to the product management teams at the demo points and to the partners who exhibit their solutions. From previous conferences we received the feedback that networking is key, it is always a challenge to keep the balance between more exiting live demos and networking breaks. As Valencia is hard to reach – you will be rewarded with a hotel & conference center overlooking the beach – many attendees will arrive on Monday. Take the opportunity to connect via twitter and Facebook. Many of the conference speakers arrive on Monday and are available for 1:1 meetings feel free to schedule them via our community wiki http://tinyurl.com/salesCafe or to contact them direct.
