REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Nov. 28 – Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to cloud, Oracle today 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 organizations.
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. Oracle CloudWorld 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.
Oracle CloudWorld 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 organizations 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.

Oracle engineers hardware and software to work together in the cloud and in your data center.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
