Since the recent expansion of Oracle PaaS Services members of the Oracle ACE program and other community thought leaders have been busy working with, exploring, and generating content about these new services. The new OTN Cloud Hour series of special events in the OTN Lounge at Oracle OpenWorld offers the opportunity for you to engage with some of these experts in an intimate, small-audience setting to learn from short presentations and group discussion. OTN will present one Cloud Hour event from 11:00am-12:00pm each day during OpenWorld (Monday, October 26 through Thursday, October 29).

Disaster Recovery, no Server, no problem!
Looking for a disaster recovery solution that does not require the purchase of dedicated servers? In this session you will learn how you can leverage the Oracle Cloud to provide Disaster recovery options for your Oracle database AND application servers using a mix of DBaaS, IaaS or PaaS technologies


UX in Cloud Development
It is now possible to create a great user experience that will make both your users and developers efficient, effective and happy using the design patterns and RDK that were developed by the Oracle UX team. The patterns are easily implemented in ADF and MAF. There are widgets, page fragments and other software pieces you can reuse to speed up development without compromising the user experience. In this session you can find out how to apply this to PaaS.

    • 11:30 am PT - Session 2 - Debra Lilley, Oracle ACE Director
      UX and Paas4SaaS
      To extend SaaS you need to be able to move both navigation and data, between SaaS & PaaS, action your extension and continue your process in SaaS. The ever increasing PaaS portfolio offers many options but customers using SaaS have bought into the enhanced User Experience, so any extending of the product has to match this or you are simply wrecking what they have bought into. Can PaaS give us this as well? Come find out.


The OTN Lounge is located in the lobby of Moscone South. Seating for these exclusive sessions is extremely limited, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
