10:30 – 11:00 | What to Expect When You Move Your Workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is Generation 2 cloud technology, far superior to that offered by the competition. In this session, attendees will learn what to expect from OCI in terms of features, cost and performance when they move on premises workloads to the cloud.

11:00 – 11:30 | Cloud Adjacent Architectures

Oracle and our partners understand that not all workloads will initially move to cloud. Many workloads will remain on premises or in a private cloud. This session will focus on how to create a cloud adjacent architecture to create the best performance when mixing cloud and on premises workloads.

Governments are taking advantage of cloud technologies to improve services to constituents and employees in very creative ways. This session will highlight customer success stories and the art of the possible.
