Please arrive from 5:30pm onwards, for a 6:00pm start.
We plan to finish by 7:30pm.Overview: When you start an Americas Cup team, you do so with a plan. Sometimes plans don’t work out and that is exactly what happened in October 2012 when Oracle TEAM USA capsized and destroyed their only boat. What seemed like a disaster at the time actually forced the team to innovate.
Many tales have been told about how Oracle came from 8-1 down to win the Americas Cup. The truth lies in the numbers and years of trust combined with a calamitous event that pushed the team in the only direction they had…. Big Data

Oracle

 

Analysis-As-A-Service: Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud ServiceWhere: Oracle House, Level 3, 243 North Melbourne Avenue Lyneham

Overview: Organisations today need to innovate and demonstrate business agility in dynamic environments. Innovation requires a deep understanding of people, processes and technology. Organisations collect vast amounts of data – around 80% of the world’s data was created in the last two years. This data holds the key to new business insights.
Analytics-as-a-Service allows business to focus on exploring and analysing data, a high-value activity, instead of waiting for expensive projects to set up infrastructure, load and model data before determining what value the data may (or may not) hold.

Join us at this session where we will demonstrate how Oracle’s Business Intelligence Cloud Service will allow your user community to load data from a variety of sources, organise the data and quickly develop self-service analysis content. Add these analyses to dashboards for wider consumption, via browsers and also using your favourite mobile devices. In addition, we will provide a first look at Oracle Visual Analyzer, a new capability of Oracle Business Intelligence that is perfect for the situations where you think there may be some insights hidden in your datasets, but you are unsure where to look to find them!
Finally we will provide an overview of the Oracle Budgeting, Forecasting and Management Reporting cloud solution, designed to assist the Finance team to spend less time on gathering data and more time on providing deeper analysis.

Wednesday May 20, 2015 The Benefits of Managing Information and Knowledge as a Business AssetDate: Wednesday, 20 May 2015 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (ACST)

Register NOW Click HereVenue: Woods Bagot, 14/11 Waymouth Street
Presenter: James Price, Managing Director – Exprerience MattersSummery: Information is the arterial system for organisations, supplying the nutrients for all business activities, process and decisions; without information no organisation can function. With the advent of mobility and the Cloud, IT is becoming a utility like electricity or water and we are witnessing the death of the traditional IT shop. Yet if information is so critical to an organisation’s survival and prosperity, and IT is being marginalised, who will be accountable for managing that vital business asset? Whilst Information Assets i.e. data, documents, content and knowledge are managed by every person in the organisation, in most organisations it is done badly and at significant risk and cost. Management simply doesn’t pay attention. One of the main reasons for this is that investing in information and knowledge management initiatives is difficult to justify. Organisations do not know how much it costs them to manage their Information Assets, they don’t know their value and they therefore don’t know the benefit to their organisations from improving their information and knowledge management practices.

AIIA
Digital Disruption: Improving Customer EngagementRetail industry marketing executives, regardless of how well-equipped, are aware of the customer revolution currently transforming the retail sector.
The collision of the virtual and physical worlds is fundamentally changing
consumers’ purchasing behaviours. Consumers are seeking an integrated Customer
Experience (CX) across all channels and expect retailers to deliver this
experience. Failure to deliver puts retailers at risk of being replaced by
competitors delivering a better experience.Traditional retailers must find opportunities to seamlessly embed the digital
world into their strategy by developing in-store and online technologies that
allow them to create and maintain meaningful and sincere connections with
customers across all channels.The immediate imperative for many retailers is what to do next and how to learn from the leaders.
The Australian Marketing Institute and AIIA have partnered to develop an exceptional Retail CX forum which addresses these issues.
This exciting ICT and Retail industry event will feature a keynote presentation from Tara Lordsmith, Group General Manager, Myer.
Tara will be joined for an interactive panel session, featuring a number of key industry leaders.Date: Wednesday 20 May, 2015
Time: 7.00am – registrations & networking
