Inoapps at Oracle OpenWorld Europe 2020
Customer success stories, the latest Oracle news and a trip to the pub!
The global series of Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) are always significant events on the Inoapps calendar. They are a fantastic opportunity to engage with the Oracle roadmap, hear about customer success, and showcase our own achievements.
So far in 2020, Inoapps have attended OOW Middle East in Dubai and OOW Europe in London as Gold Sponsors.
Here’s a look back at what the team got up to in London:
The day before OOW Europe officially began, our CEO and Founder Andy Bird was invited, by Oracle, to speak at the Partner Executive Summit. Andy spoke with Javier Torres, Oracle's Vice President, Alliances & Channels and ISV, EMEA and APAC. They discussed our recent success in helping Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council navigate a low risk transition to a new platform which will deliver improved quality of service and reduce costs.
Andy and Javier also took time-out to talk to the ‘Inside OOW’ team about why OOW is such an important event. Andy’s key takeaways were that the regional OOWs allow our team to engage with Oracle in a way which was simply not possible when it was only held annually in San Francisco. He also highlighted the cultural change in Oracle towards a greater focus on customers and how useful it is hear about the growing Oracle portfolio of products and acquisitions.

Our VP of Ideation, Dermot Murray also recorded a conversation with Bruno Aziza for his ‘Insight Analytics’ YouTube series. Watch this space for the video, coming soon.
Once OOW officially kicked off on Wednesday 12th February, it was all about our customer speakers. Oliver Shore from Skanska and Katy Harding from Ofqual told packed audiences how they had partnered with Inoapps and Oracle to transition parts of their business successfully the Cloud.
Of course, a key aspect of OOW is networking. And where better to do that than in the pub! Inoapps hired a nearby bar and packed the place out with friends old and new.
In all, it was a busy and productive few days at OOW Europe 2020. Inoapps is scheduled to sponsor the remaining regional series events in Asia and Latin America later in the year. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Singapore event has sadly, but sensibly been postponed. We look forward to it being rescheduled soon, but in the meantime you can catch us in June in Sao Paulo!
