Note the new name? The EMEA Conference Team have rebranded the event this year to demonstrate the connection between the ‘global’ Alliance conference and our international regional events – whilst the scale of the event might be different, we aim to deliver the same value to attendees in terms of education and networking opportunities.
The theme of this year’s event is ‘Engaging with change’ – we’re talking about change on every level here – change in technology (Cloud); change in upgrade processes (PUM); change in skills sets of functional and technical teams – enabling and constructing solutions with delivered tools and functionality; changes in approaches to testing (particularly with a move to cloud and/or hybrid solutions); and changes in analytics solutions (embedded).
All of these changes have implications for institutional decision-making and for our relationships: with our teams; our executives; with Oracle; and with our consultants/strategic partners.
The EMEA Alliance 2015 will provide you and your teams with opportunities to hear more about these challenges/opportunities and discuss how you and other member institutions and strategic partners are engaging with change.
The call for presentations is already out and registration will be open very soon. I look forward to welcoming you this year to the Hilton Hotel in the very centre of Rotterdam. A fabulous venue in the heart of a truly connected city – the perfect location for the EMEA ALLIANCE 2015!
