Free Half-Day Online Forum Maps Path to Total Cloud Control

From building a business case to managing upgrades, a new half-day Oracle Enterprise Management Online Forum explores every phase of the cloud lifecycle, mapping a path for organizations to achieve total cloud control.

"As many prospectors discovered during the California Gold Rush of 1849, the gold remained out of reach without the right planning, provisions, and ability to execute," explains Anand Akela, senior principal product manager, Oracle. "For many organizations the same is true regarding cloud computing—they rush to the cloud and then try figure out how to manage it."

In response, this half-day forum—available on a free, on-demand basis—brings together business and IT experts to chart a path to a successful enterprise cloud rollout. It also explores the ways Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c provides a complete cloud lifecycle solution—including integrated cloud stack management and business-driven application management.
