Join us at Oracle’s Cloud Computing Conference on February 29th 2012 at the Lancaster Hotel, London

As enterprise adoption of cloud computing accelerates, organisations must have a strategy and plan for moving to the cloud. What should you put into public clouds? Should you create a private cloud? Should you use cloud applications, platform or infrastructure? How do you get started on the road to cloud computing? This event will help you answer these questions and will explore best practices for how organisations can move to cloud computing.

There will be the opportunity to hear the current trends in Cloud Computing from a Gartner analyst.


We will also demonstrate:

  • How Oracle provides the most complete choice of public and private clouds at all levels of the cloud: SaaS, PaaS and IaaS,
  • How Engineered systems reduces the risk in your data centre and reduces IT costs by realising the efficiencies of database consolidation onto private clouds,
  • How the cloud delivery model can help you invest in adding new business value rather than spending most of your IT budget on maintaining existing applications.

We will also be introducing the only complete cloud management solution, Enterprise Manager 12c, built and engineered to help you reduce IT complexity and improve your agility to changing business needs.

Watch out for more agenda updates in the upcoming weeks.

Intel Corporation

Through extensive discussions with global IT organisations, service providers and ecosystem vendors, Intel has identified a vision for the cloud that goes beyond the capabilities of today. Intel’s Cloud 2015 vision embraces a world of interoperable “federated” clouds; “automated” movement of software applications and resources; and PC and device-savvy “client-aware” clouds that know what processing should take place in the cloud or on your laptop, smartphone or other devices. How does Intel’s vision of federated, automated and client-aware translate to the process of developing and deploying a cloud infrastructure? And how is Intel working with the broader ecosystem to speed the delivery of technology that enables more secure, efficient, and simplified cloud data centers? Join Intel executives and technology experts at the Oracle Cloud Conference to learn the full scope of Intel’s Cloud 2015 vision and hear more about how the company’s Open Data Center Initiative encourages cloud computing innovation while preserving IT flexibility and choice.
