THE SUMMIT SERIES

In the EBS Summit series, our experts will guide you through a number of topics geared towards

Protecting your investment

Extending the value

Embracing new innovation

EBS IS COOL AGAIN.

Its 2018 and eBusiness Suite is cool again. Go figure.

While many Oracle application customers have bought into the vision of SaaS solutions, existing eBusiness suite customers are finding a new renaissance in their old applications.  
In 2017, Oracle released a technologically-advanced version of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), and in the process have brought many of the inherent benefits of the cloud to on-premise application customers.  Now customers can leverage the elasticity and enhanced capabilities of the services and many of them are finding that they can save money.
SmartDog Services is committed to the success of these customers, and is releasing a series of webinars, white papers/blogs and roundtables starting in March of 2018.  Our goal is to help you understand the changes in the applications, the technology and the industry so that you can get the most value out of the software you already own.

Join the journey by registering for our Global EBS Summit Series.

Register now for online access to the EBS Summit, from the opening keynote to closing message. Your submission will sign you up for exclusive content and updates during the 5 month virtual summit.
