Oracle last week announced Oracle CloudWorld, an event series where senior Oracle executives, customers, partners and industry thought leaders will share how they drive business transformation using the Oracle Cloud.

"Oracle Cloud is the most comprehensive cloud in the world being used each day by more than 25 million users and more than 10,000 organisations," the company said. 

The debut of Oracle CloudWorld follows closely on the heels of the expansion of the Oracle Cloud services portfolio at Oracle OpenWorld 2012. Oracle president Mark Hurd will kick off Oracle CloudWorld on January 15, 2013 in Dubai.  The tour will include events in cities around the world, including London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Mumbai, Munich, New York City, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. Keynote sessions will highlight Oracle's strategy and roadmap for cloud and social. Subsequent tracks for line of business executives will focus on sales and marketing, customer service and support, HR and talent management, and finance and operations.

The events will also have tracks for application developers and DBAs focused on how to use the Oracle Database and Java Cloud Services. It will also highlight how organisations can best leverage social media to monitor, engage, and market to their customers. Oracle executives, along with customers and partners, will share ideas on how to drive business transformation and gain competitive advantage from technologies like cloud, social, and mobile to drive innovation across lines of business.

Each Oracle CloudWorld event will include customised local content, as well as multiple tracks, in-depth Q&A sessions, real-world case studies, and hands-on demos and exhibits.

"Cloud computing is transforming business and IT by enabling new services that drive value, accelerate innovation and reduce cost across the enterprise," said Thomas Kurian, executive vice president of product development, Oracle.

"To help customers realise these benefits, we are launching the Oracle CloudWorld event series. Through a combination of best practices, unique insights and customised content, the events will help businesses leverage the cloud to drive their current and future success."
