The first day was intense and although we started at 10:30 AM we had 6 sessions where some Oracle's top speakers talked us about Middleware, PaaS, BPM in the Cloud (Process Cloud Service), and my favourite of the day 'Next-Generation application Development - The Mobile and Cloud effect' where we were able to see a Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator demo (It will be included in future releases of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service) that will help business users to create mobile applications easily.
The last part of the day was the Community Awards where avanttic was awarded with Oracle Fusion Middleware Community Forum - Mobile award for Outstanding Mobile Contribution 2016. I had the honor to receive the award and also to present the customer success of our last Oracle MAF and Oracle MCS project.
Congratulations to all the winners of this year!
This is the slide I presented.
After the awards ceremony, we headed to Masia Campo Anibal where we enjoyed the dinner talking to other partners and people from Oracle.
The second day started earlier than the first one and the presentations were more technical. We were able to choose one of the 4 breakouts:
- SOA & Integration & SOA Cloud Service track
- BPM & Process Cloud Service & User experience track
- WebLogic & Java Cloud Service & Engineered Systems track
- Mobile track & Internet of Things (IoT) track
I assisted the last one, Mobile track & Internet of Things (IoT) track where we were able to listen to Frank Nimphius about 'Accessing Oracle MCS from Oracle MAF' and 'Extending Oracle ADF Application to Cloud and Mobile' and Andrejus Baranovskis about 'Oracle JET and WebSockets'.
Although al presentations were fantastic I leave the first one of the day to the last because I was impressed by the presentation about 'IoT Cloud Service and Predictive Maintenance Showcase' by Luis Weir and Simon Nicholson. It allowed us to know what can be achieved with Oracle IoTCS, Oracle MCS and Oracle MAF.
After the breakouts there were 2 presentations, the first one was a 'Live hacking' where 5 Oracle ACE Director showed us the integration among a lot PaaS products. The last one by Shishir Agarwal about 'Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)' allowed us to know the IaaS strategy.
I would like to thank Jürgen Kress for organize again this wonderful event. I can't wait for the next year!
