For the 29th edition of the annual conference of the German ORACLE User Group (DOAG), a total of 2,500 database administrators, developers and other IT experts will be expected by the end of the event. "More than 470 lectures from renowned national and international top speakers in twenty parallel tracks offer visitors the unique opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and best practices in the industry in just one place," said the DOAG Chairman Stefan Kinnen. Numerous practical user and experience reports cover the trending themes mobile, cloud and big data.
The 2,500 participants also include the approximately 400 visitors of the integrated Oracle Cloud Day, which is held for the second time parallel to the DOAG 2016 Conference + Exhibition, following the successful debut last year. At the largest Oracle event in Germany, the company will present its latest cloud solutions to visitors.
Concentrated knowledge, networking and best entertainment
Many representatives of the Oracle product management are an integral part of the conference program. Andrew Sutherland, Senior Vice President for Technology and Systems, presented the modern cloud platform for digital companies in his opening keynote on the first day of the conference.
Two other keynotes are dedicated to this year's conference motto "Security". On Wednesday evening, comedy hacker and security expert Tobias Schrödel will start the traditional evening event. In his keynote "Hacking for Managers" he explains in an entertaining way the security gaps and data security in companies. On Thursday, Internet activist Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who built the WikiLeaks platform, paints the "Big Picture of the Digital Revolution" and talks about the opportunities, risks and challenges of the digital age.
In addition to classical lectures, numerous interactive formats such as the Unconference, community activities or panel discussions offer countless networking opportunities. At the accompanying exhibition with about 60 partners, the participants have many opportunities to get in touch with speakers, companies and other visitors alike. During the following training day on November 18, participants will be able to deepen their knowledge in eleven seminars.
