Enterprise 2.0 In Action

Oracle began it's Enterprise 2.0 In Action event series yesterday in Houston. Each event has three presentations which include demos and customer testimonial videos regarding the use of Oracle products to implement enterprise portals, social networking implementations, application document integration, and better, more managable websites.

Each event will give you a chance to see the new release of Oracle ECM Suite 11g,  as one of the sessions will go through and show new features of the release, as well as showing the 11g releases of WebCenter Suite and Imaging and Process Management. This session includes a number of short demos or viewlets so you can see the new user interface and ways that Oracle Enterprise 2.0 products are integrated to fit the way you work.

Each event includes a customer presentation or a partner presenting a customer's case study on their use of Oracle products to implement Enterprise 2.0 projects. Some of the profiles include:
  • Arbonne (and their implementation partner Bezzotech) regarding their implementation of a social media site for their customers and resellers at the Los Angeles event
  • Land O' Lakes (and their partner Fishbowl Solutions) will discuss their implementation of Oracle for managing their websites, and their integration of social media into their marketing programs
  • Canadian Partnership Against Cancer will be presented by Deloitte in Toronto, New York and Chicago
