Are you attending Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco this year? Zebra will be there, and our attending team has some insider insights for you.

To find out which sessions our team is most excited about and why, we interviewed Dean Jackson, Partner Development Manager at Zebra.

Tell us about the show.

Zebra Technologies is an exhibitor and sponsor at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 in San Francisco, CA Sept 28th - October 2nd. We've been an Oracle partner for 14+ years, and we work closely with Oracle’s product development and product strategy teams to ensure that we are delivering the quality solutions that our joint user community expects.

Zebra and Motorola Solutions have a joint booth again this year at Oracle OpenWorld, and we are extremely excited to show case new and innovative technologies for our customers. Oracle OpenWorld is the only conference where attendees have the opportunity to learn about current and future Oracle products and technologies.

Customers, partners, and Oracle experts from around the world attend over 1,700 sessions, many of which focus on the core Oracle technology stack, Cloud technology, analytics and mobility, Oracle E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, and Oracle Retail – to name a few.  Attendees use this opportunity for networking and to grow their skillset for increased productivity within their own enterprise.

Which sessions are you most excited about and why?  

This year, the keynotes are delivered by industry experts from companies like Intel, CapGemini, Zerox, GE, Walgreens, P&G and Oracle. I’m particularly excited about these because they provide so much insight into future technologies. Topics include the future of the datacenter in a software-defined world, the real-time enterprise, reshaping the world with software, and leading digital transformation now, among others. 

Beyond the educational sessions, what events are you looking forward to the most?

Zebra Technologies and Motorola Solutions are co-sponsors of the Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) networking reception. The Oracle SCM user community is one of Zebra’s biggest user groups in scanning, mobile, barcode printing and RFID-encoding technologies.  To show our appreciation, we are giving away an official NFL football, signed by the legendary Joe Montana! 

What advice do you have for first time attendees? 

Plan ahead – which sessions to attend (including keynotes), which meetings, which restaurants, transportation, etc. The event can be overwhelming for first time attendees because there are over 40,000 people present, but that's what makes this show so compelling for members of the IT community.

Stop by and see us in booth #620.
