Exciting days are behind us. As every year we visited Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. Thousands of customers, hundreds of partners, and millions of virtual attendees from more than 141 countries were curious to see a lot of innovation, technology and entertainment. Oracle OpenWorld is the industry’s preeminent business and technology show featuring over 2,500 sessions, 3,000 speakers, and more than 400 Oracle demos. More than 45 Oracle products and services have been unveiled throughout the conference.
You might have seen the tweets that we shared with you during the last couple of days. Let me list a few of our highlights here:

My colleague Sven Bernhardt (OracleACE) was also invited to participate in the following two sessions as a speaker:
High-Performance Oracle SOA Suite Customer Panel [CON8115]
Service integration is critical in allowing the business to remain agile by bringing together islands of information. As the business discovers the value of information, the expectation is to have information and to be able to make decisions rapidly. This panel discussion hosts some key Oracle service integration customers using products like Oracle Service Bus, Oracle SOA Suite, and more to achieve very high performance around their integration requirements. Hear real-world examples and learn how Oracle enables integration to bring value to the business.
Boost SaaS and On-Premises Connectivity: Leverage Oracle Cloud Adapters [CON7993]
An ever-growing number of organizations have made software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications their system of interaction for customer experience, employees, and wider ecosystems. Learn how to generate huge business value by integrating these cloud apps with on-premises applications by leveraging Oracle Cloud Adapters. This session discusses diverse capabilities of various Oracle Cloud Adapters and how they deliver faster, declarative, and robust SaaS-to-SaaS or SaaS-to-on-premises integrations on Oracle’s integration-platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) and Oracle SOA Suite platforms.
I had the pleasure to contribute to the session Oracle SOA Suite 12c Success Stories [CON7996]. Together with Lonneke Dikmans (SOA Expert and Oracle ACE Director from eProseed NL), Rahul Sood (Manager, Software Architecture and Development at RTD) and Antony Reynolds (Product Strategy Director, Oracle) we shared our experiences from several SOA Suite 12c implementations.
Oracle SOA Suite 12c greatly improved the upgrade experience for its customer base. The results are seen in faster adoption by customers and their enthusiasm to leverage new features of the platform. Join this session to meet some customers and partners who have been on this journey and want to share their experiences.
In the next post we are going to wrap up our Open World highlights and major announcements that have been made during this amazing event.
