The next Oracle AppsWorld, slated for January 26-29 in San Diego, will offer more specialized sessions than in the past, organizers say. Topics such as performance management, outsourcing, collaboration and corporate governance are among the Oracle offerings.
The three-day event should attract about 12,000 attendees, said Fred Studer, Oracle Corp. vice president of applications marketing.
"In the past, we've gone through and just talked about the highlights of our products," Studer said, but this year the company plans to spend more time talking about corporate governance, Studer said.
This year, Oracle AppsWorld will also focus on industry-specific software,legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory issues, Studer said.
"There will be more panels of customers to talk about what they've done to increase the value of their products and reiterate how they've been able to solve critical business pain," he said.
The independent Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) will also host a forum for users on the opening day of the conference, focusing on issues such as data fragmentation, integration and business-process automation.
