Miami, Florida ODTUG BI-EPM Oracle Cloud Stack User Event

The when, the what, the where, the why, and the how

Come this 13 April 2017, from noon to7 o’clock, a mere 29 days from the writing of this blog post (don’t get excited as this is written on Pacific time so it’s still 15 March), the ODTUG EPM-BI Oracle Stack User event will come, like a whirlwind of Oracle Cloud, to the EAST Miami Hotel in, not all that surprisingly, Miami, Florida.  

This is more than a meetup.  Super meetup?  Superduper meetup?  How about an Executive Summit?  Yup, that sounds about right.  Wait, no, it’s a Cloud Executive Summit.  Could it be any more au courant?  I think not.

Why oh why oh why would you attend?  Simply because you want to understand why and how your peers (be they customer or consultant) live, work, and succeed in the Oracle Cloud.  It’s also a great opportunity to meet said peers and make that personal connection.

Where’s it going to be?

Miami EAST Hotel

I’m pretty sure we’re not cool enough to hang out a hotel like this.  Okay, scratch that: you may be cool enough; I am not.  But I’ll be there regardless.

Who’s who

An event like this doesn’t happen by mere happenstance or without an awful lot of effort.  Many enthusiastic, talented, and hardworking people came together to make this happen.  Let’s give them their due:

To recap

The what

Again, what’s this all about?  Nothing but the future of Oracle (and by extension, you) in the Cloud (and thus extension,  you) from true customer executive to true consultant geek.

The why

Good grief, I haven’t convinced you yet?  No?  Why?

Let’s make this easy:  
  • You’re an Oracle customer (or maybe you’re thinking of becoming one)
  • You understand the Cloud is the future
  • You want to learn more, more, and more
  • You live/work/are spiritually linked to Southern Florida

Where else can you go to meet your peers (both of the executive and geek persuasion) and learn all about Oracle Cloud?  This must be the place.

If you’re in Southern Florida, I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t attend.  Seriously Gentle Reader, it behooves you to attend if you care about Oracle in the Cloud even a eensy-weensy bit,.

The where

Where do the elite Oracle Cloud geeks meet?  Yup, that’s right: at the Miami ODTUG EPM-BI Oracle Stack User Event, ‘natch.

The how

It’s easy peasy, no big deasy.  Simply go here and sign up.  It’s a mere $20 if you’re an Oracle customer, and a not-all-that-bad-considering-everything $125 if you’re a partner.

The when

Thursday, 13 April 2017, 12 pm to 7 pm Eastern.

Be seeing you there.
