2nd Annual Provincial Forum & the Best of Oracle OpenWorld

Provincial Ministries, Crowns and Agencies are transforming in an effort to meet increasing service expectations from citizens, legislative mandates, and current economic pressures. There is a need to be more efficient and accountable, providing services and information to constituents expeditiously and cost-effectively. However, legacy information systems typically support single program functions. These disparate systems pose a complex canvas upon which to compose a more efficient government systems landscape.

Please join your fellow government leaders and Oracle to discuss these current challenges and learn how government agencies are leveraging IT as a core tool to streamline multi-organization operations thereby delivering a more cost-effective, citizen- centric, and sustainable government.

This Provincial Forum will provide government organizations:

  • Perspectives from industry strategists and thought leaders on gaining operational efficiencies, enforcing regulatory compliance, reducing costs, and improving citizen services
  • Solutions and product announcements from the recent Oracle OpenWorld conference
  • Networking opportunities with other government attendees and Oracle experts

Track 2

Optimizing IT Data Centers with Customer Case Study Featuring the Integrated Case Management Project
The evolution of the datacenter is accelerating as virtualization, consolidation, and cloud services are becoming ubiquitous. Through integration and optimization of hardware and software, Oracle is leading the industry in the next phase of the transformation of the datacenter. Tomorrow’s datacenter must be able to handle massive amounts of structured and unstructured data, perform critical analysis and reporting in a fraction of the time it takes today. Skyrocketing operational costs must be controlled and reduced. Global workforces require secure access 24 X 7, with zero unplanned downtime. Learn how Oracle delivers all this and more through Hardware and Software Engineered to work together. In this session, we’ll also hear how when faced with the challenges of complex requirements and high user deployment footprint, BC Government’s Integrated Case Management Project evaluated and selected the Oracle Exadata hardware platform. Learn about the drivers and process leading to this decision, status of its implementation and early performance indicators.
Robert Fleming, Master Principal Sales Consultant, Oracle Public Sector.
Marcin Zaranski, Director, Solution Alignment, Integrated Case Management, BC Ministry of Social Development.

Elevating IT Security to the Cloud
The trend toward Cloud consolidation is ever present, further increasing the pressure of understanding related transition challenges on IT departments, CIOs and CTOs. Please join Spiros Angelopoulos from Oracle to learn how you can mitigate some of the associated risks by using security controls available with a solid foundation of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Data Security strategies.
