Sticking to On-Prem and not moving to cloud? Attend our Meetup to meet like-minded professionals and get the best out of your On-Prem.

With a lot of hype happening around moving to Oracle Cloud, it's easy to feel unloved if this is not an option for you. Maybe your company isn’t ready, the transition isn’t for another few years or you simply don’t need to? Either way, we are hosting a Meetup for all users of On-Prem EBS (and other software) to learn how to get the best return on investment from your packages. You’ll have the chance to quiz the experts, meet like-minded professionals of your community and hear how to get the best out of your On-Prem software.

SPEAKER: Hear from Steve Davis, Foraidan, in his session "Should I Stay or Should I Go?". Read more.

This Meetup is FREE for all members and guests so bring your peers, colleagues and anyone you believe may be interested.

If you would like to know more about this event please get in contact with Haydon Godbeer by e-mailing or calling 020 3393 2984.





Steve Davis

I have worked with Oracle products for 20+ years starting as a user, and then moving into consultancy taking on project and programme management roles with a broad spectrum of customers both on-prem and more recently in the Cloud space. Always striving to ensure organisations get the most from their Oracle investments and maximise their capabilities to carry out their day to day business needs. A regular speaker and livewire in the Oracle community.



Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Options, options, options; they are out there everywhere or so it would appear. But on the face of it, how many choices do you have when you've been running your on-prem application for so long and have such a long history together?

This informal chat discusses the various choices Oracle customers have made and why it was right for them including;

  • we're not moving anytime soon either upgrade or Cloud (R12.1.3) - sweating the asset
  • our kit is old but we are happy with the application and not changing much as a business
  • we had to move from 11i and our old servers so we're going 12.2.7 so we are supported until 2030 - we're not ready for Cloud apps

The purpose of the talk is to promote thought and discussion and try to pin down where each of the attendees are at in their Oracle lifecycle, the options they have and the choices they need to make. It is intended to be interactive and won't be a Powerpoint driven session.
