When you read this you arrived safely in Split and we would like to thank you and your management for investing the time to attend the PaaS Partner Community Forum XXIV. There will be more than 200 delegates from more than 40 countries, which will give you the opportunity to learn from other cloud minded partners and network with partners from different regions as we also have representation from Africa, Asia, North America, South America and the Middle-East. Many Oracle employees will attend and we would like to invite you to challenge them how we can support you to grow your business and maintain profitability on your investment with Oracle.

This year’s conference marks a turning point in our journey. Cloud Computing is leading on all service levels. SaaS solutions became a standard model for enterprise customers. Infrastructure as a Service is used to deploy all kind of workload flexible in the cloud. Platform as a Service (PaaS) is crossing the chasm. At our community workspaces you can get a slide deck with more than 70 PaaS live production references. PaaS often is used to integrate SaaS solutions with other SaaS solutions or on-premises. Cloud platforms like Application Cloud Container (ACC) enable developers to build cloud native applications utilizing a microservices model. Often this applications are optimized for mobile devices. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) play a key role in the digital transformation. New cloud services like machine learning and chatbots are arising.

During this event you will see presentations from Product Management, Pre-Sales Consultants and Partners, that will share their real life experiences with you how to implement Oracle PaaS & Middleware solutions and to see the business drivers behind these projects.

Focus of the 24th Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum will be Platform as a Service (PaaS) Cloud Computing. During the last months many of the new PaaS service became mature. The Partner Community Forum is one of the best opportunities to get details and hands-on trainings about Integration Cloud Service (ICS), SOA Cloud Service (SOA CS), API Platform Cloud Service (API CS), Process Cloud Service (PCS), Mobile Cloud Service (MCS), Internet of Things Cloud Service (IoT CS), Java Cloud & Developer Cloud Service, Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCs) and Application Container Cloud Service (ACCs) and Content and Experience Cloud Service. Oracle PaaS Services give partners many new opportunities to build, customize and integrate applications in a public cloud environment. Our joint customers will benefit from this new cloud offering by fast time to market, higher availability and flexibility, lower project cost an risks. With hybrid cloud computing Oracle offers a unique value proposition for customer and partners. You can choose where to host your cloud solutions in the data center of your choice. Cloud marketplace gives you as a partner new opportunities to build, deploy and promote and market offerings on the Oracle PaaS Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Partner Program reflect the focus on cloud computing.

The Enrich SaaS with PaaS initiative is designed for Oracle SaaS applications partners. The underlying PaaS platform enables customers to enrich and differentiate SaaS solutions. Connect SaaS solutions with other SaaS solutions and on-premises, analyze data and extend applications. As part of the conference multiple session and a two days hands-on training are offered to Enrich SaaS solutions with PaaS.

Each conference attendee was granted access to free PaaS demo service before and during the conferences. As an Oracle gold partner or above you can request free PaaS demo services via demo.oracle.com or our partner communities any time – make use of it!

On the first conference day you can learn from ACEs implementing successful PaaS solutions at our joint customers and PaaS best practices.

We are excited to welcome again Ed Zou at the conference who will highlight in his keynote how to innovate on Oracle Cloud Platform – build, integrate, analyze and secure solutions. Digital is changing the economy, our joint customers face this challenge, PaaS is the platform you can build new Digital solutions either in the Cloud on on-premises. Thanks to our product management team you will get updates and roadmap details including demos for our PaaS & Middleware solutions.

We would like to congratulate the annual winners of the Fusion Middleware Partner Community Awards. You will have the opportunity to learn direct from them why they have won the awards. On Tuesday evening during our social event you will have plenty of chance for deep discussion within the community and speakers.

On the third day you can choose between four breakout tracks: Enterprise Integration track, BPM & User experience track, Application Development track and Mobile & Internet of Things track. We will keep our tradition to wrap up the conference with the legendary ACE demo – special thanks to Lucas Jellema and team!

Thursday and Friday six different hands-on boot camps take place. During the conference we host run multiple information points. Please take the opportunity to talk to the product management teams and business development teams. From previous conferences we received the feedback that networking is key, it is always a challenge to keep the balance between more exiting live demos and networking breaks. As Split is hard to reach – you will be rewarded with a hotel & conference center overlooking the beach – many attendees will arrive on Monday. Therefore we introduce the community day with best practice and customer references. Take the opportunity to connect via twitter and Facebook. Also most of the conference speakers arrive on Monday and are available for 1:1 meetings!

The part of the OTN Tour 2016 in Australia was a personal highlight for me. This is where I wrote the biggest part of my cloud computing book and started a small subsidiary for my company.

Both OTN events weren’t massive but very well organized. Interested audience, lots of feedback and questions. Thanks to everybody who attended. I presented about WebLogic with Java Cloud Service (JCS) and Docker with the new Oracle Container Cloud Service (OCCS). Slides are available as usual on slideshare.

Here is a compilation of the event. Watch the videos here.
