Going Mobile with Oracle: Oracle's Platform and Application
Regis Louis, VP Product Management, Oracle Corporation

Among today’s enterprises, 87% have a formal mobility strategy at the enterprise or unit level, yet 7 in 10 are struggling to keep pace with new mobile devices and systems. Every organization has some level of tactical mobile implementation, yet the cost associated with spending on mobile devices is expected to grow 54% over the next two years. So what's next? How should enterprises approach mobility? In this session, hear from Oracle Corporation’s vice president of mobile strategy about how enterprises are transforming their digital business with a mobile-first strategy: bringing together clients, context, content, and the cloud. You will also learn how the Oracle Mobile Platform can help you rethink mobility and define your enterprise mobile strategy.

 Session 1   10:00 - 10:45 AM     

Best Practices and Considerations: Legacy to Mobile Strategy
Acedirector.jpg Mia Urman, AuraPlayer

As mobile devices become the primary means for accessing information, enterprises must find a way to accelerate mobilization. This session will show you step-by-step how to begin your mobile journey if you are a Forms or EBS user, including what factors to consider when going mobile, how to overcome mobile challenges, and how to leverage existing investments in the mobile world. We will discuss the new Oracle toolset for mobile development, MAF, which includes all the bells and whistles of today's cutting-edge apps (including features such as gesture control, graphing, barcode capture, camera, notifications, etc.). This session will serve as a guide for you on how to begin your mobile journey and how you can utilize both existing applications and new Oracle development tools to get you there in record time!

The Best of Both Worlds: Going Hybrid with Your Mobile APEX Application
Acedirector.jpg Roel Hartman, APEX Consulting

With APEX, we can create web applications that run just fine on our mobile devices. With some more effort, we can create hybrid APEX applications that run close to native on our mobile devices - with integration with other apps on our devices such as Calendar, Contacts, Facebook, Mail, Twitter, etc. "If all you have is hammer, everything looks like a nail" ... and is APEX such a hammer? Maybe we should do things differently, and are other tools better equipped for the job? Or is APEX the overall winner? Maybe the truth lies in between? Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) will play an important role in this discussion.

Session 2  11:00 - 11:45 AM

Oracle UX Design Patterns and Mobile Development: Creating Professional Business Applications

In this session, we will show you a use-case where we designed the user experience using UX methodologies such as personas, scenarios, and wireframes, and translated that to a working application using the Oracle Mobile Application Framework, responsive design patterns, and Oracle development tooling. We will describe the methodology used and show a demo of the resulting apps we built. It shows that from now on, you can create great user experience in a cost-effective way.

APEX Security 101
Acedirector.jpg Dimitri Gielis, APEX R&D

Internet security is a topical subject these days. It becomes more and more important to secure your applications against threats such as hackers because more and more important information becomes available for them. The biggest risk is that one could take over your identity. During this presentation, discover the best practices in securing mobile applications written in APEX to protect them against different threats.

Lunch  12:00 - 1:00 PM

Session 3   1:00 - 1:45 PM

Applying Security to Your Mobile App
John Waghorne, Oracle Corporation 

With the proliferation of mobile devices and increased BYOD adoption, there is a strong need for enterprises to secure corporate resource access from these less secure consumer devices. Solutions such as Mobile Device Management (MDM) required consumer devices to be locked down using device-level PIN and VPN to gain control on these devices to provide security. This created privacy and usability issues as consumer devices were required to always adhere to corporate policies, even for personal use.

As the use of mobile devices by employees for accessing corporate data is on the rise, this presents a number of challenges for IT departments, including integration and security. Organizations are reluctant to fully embrace BYOD and cite concerns over security as one of the key reasons for this. Oracle Mobile Security Suite (OMSS) overcomes these challenges by isolating corporate from personal data on consumers’ personal mobile devices without needing to lock down the entire device.

In this session, we will start by looking at current market analysis before examining the security challenges associated with BYOD. We will then move on to looking at how Oracle can provide solutions that can be used to address these challenges. The session will conclude with a demonstration of the security solution in action.

Entering the Wearables Revolution
Acedirector.jpg Dimitri Gielis, APEX R&D

Wearables are hot these days. One might say it is a true revolution. We at APEX R&D are entering that wearables revolution as well, through Oracle Application Express. During this presentation, learn about the APEX R&D project and features of the research, including the Apple Watch. Wouldn't it be great to facilitate the work that people do in such a manner that they could do more other important things?

Session 4   2:00 - 2:45 PM

 A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator: Superior Productivity in Building Best-Practice MAF Applications
Steven Davelaar, Oracle Corporation

Come learn how the A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator (AMPA) can help you in building enterprise-class applications using Oracle's Mobile Application Framework (MAF). AMPA is a free open-source toolkit that dramatically improves developer productivity when building advanced MAF applications that support on-device data caching to create super-responsive applications. In addition, AMPA automates the consumption of RESTful services and provides a complete persistence layer that allows you to use the mobile application in offline mode. You can read and write data while not connected to the Internet and synchronize any pending data changes later when you are online again. In this session, learn about the use of AMPA by building a complete mobile application from scratch and hear valuable tips and guidelines for mobile development. 


Mobile Analytics Using Oracle BI Mobile
Francesco Tisiot, Rittman Mead

Mobile is rapidly becoming the first interaction method to BI: A static PDF attached to an email isn’t enough anymore. Users need to connect to BI from their phones, iPads, etc. at any time and from any position by keeping all the functionalities available on desktop. This presentation will show Oracle’s OBIEE approach to mobile and the options available to users such as Oracle BI Mobile App and Mobile App Designer, the HTML5-only BI tool based on Oracle BI Publisher technology.

Session 5   3:00 - 3:45 PM

Real-Life Oracle MAF: Things You Don’t Learn from Oracle’s Developer’s Guide
Luc Bors, eProseed

Oracle Mobile Application Framework enables you to create apps for both iOS and Android. When you're building your first Oracle Mobile Application Framework app, you'll run into issues you can't solve by reading Oracle's Developer's Guide. Think of the performance when taking pictures, skinning, creating custom springboards, and more. It can all be done, but there are many different ways. These topics are what this session covers. You will learn solutions for these and other real-life Oracle Mobile Application Framework challenges.

Securing Oracle BI Mobile
Acedirector.jpg Mark Rittman, Rittman Mead

Some organizations need to secure their Oracle BI Mobile deployment beyond the standard security measures in the product by, for example, deploying BI Mobile HD using Good Technology or Bitzer secure mobile solutions. Oracle recently made available the BI Mobile Security Toolkit that aims to make Oracle BI Mobile compatible with these secure mobile platforms. In this session, we’ll look at these secure mobile platforms, study the use of secure Internet browsers also provided by these platforms, and see how Oracle BI Mobile can successfully be deployed within them – making it possible for all Oracle customers to use Oracle BI Mobile, even in enhanced-security environments.

Closing Keynote   4:00 - 4:45 PM
