Perspective: Oracle Value Chain Summit 2015 — Thoughts and Impressions
This IDC Manufacturing Insights Perspective summarizes the recent Oracle Value Chain Summit (VCS) 2015 event. At the end of last month, we had the opportunity to attend Oracle's Value Chain Summit 2015 in San Jose, California. Enabling Agents of Change was the theme of the summit. Over 2,500 value chain experts representing more than 425 companies from 31 countries attended this year's VCS! As we have observed from prior years, it is a somewhat more civilized experience than Oracle OpenWorld, particularly for those of us that focus on a particular domain or on a particular industry. Indeed, again this year, the summit was full of both existing customers and prospects willing to discuss their experiences with Oracle products! The Oracle folks always do a good job of setting up both executive and customer meetings; this time around, it was principally the latter.Please Note: Extended description available upon request.
