With more than 70 out of about 800 individual sessions, Oracle WebCenter is a major focus of COLLABORATE 12, this year's Independent Oracle User Group (IOUG) conference, taking place this week in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I had the pleasure to attend the WebCenter Customer Advisory Board meeting yesterday, where Oracle WebCenter customers shared their experiences and best practices of their WebCenter implementations and provided valuable input and feedback to the WebCenter product management team.
Oracle Social Network was used for real-time Conversations during the various presentations and to capture customer feedback.
It was a fascinating experience. During the presentation, customers were very active and provided real-time feedback, asked questions and made valuable suggestions.
One topic surfaced consistently across multiple conversations was the concerns about Security (strong authentication, access control, data retention and archiving policies) when deploying social tools.
We were happy to address their concerns as all WebCenter products including, Oracle Social Network provide out-of-the-box enterprise level security, which allows you to implement SECURE Social Networks within your organizations. Are any of you attending Collaborate this week? We encourage you to sit in on any of the sessions to hear from WebCenter customers, partners and product management experts. If you are looking to see Oracle Social Network or Oracle WebCenter in action, be sure to stop by the demogrounds for a live demonstration! I'll be back later in the week to report on how the conference is going and share my reflections. Be sure to follow #webcenter and #c12lv on Twitter to be in the know of the latest happenings. Here's to a great Collaborate 12!
