Oracle pushing cloud agenda with CloudWorld global event series

Oracle is breaking out beyond OpenWorld with a new international tour dedicated to the cloud, kicking off in Dubai in January.

Oracle is ramping up its efforts to promote its cloud portfolio with a new world tour of events dubbed "CloudWorld."

The event series will feature senior Oracle executives, customers, partners and industry thought leaders sharing how they plan to drive business transformation using the Oracle Cloud.

Oracle president Mark Hurd will kick off CloudWorld on January 15 in Dubai. Subsequent stops will take place in London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Mumbai, Munich, New York City, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.

The hardware and software giant already hosts OpenWorld conferences in San Francisco, São Paulo, and Beijing.

Each CloudWorld event is touted to offer customized local content, as well as multiple tracks, in-depth Q&A sessions, real-world case studies, and hands-on demos and exhibits.

The Redwood Shores, Calif.-based corporation first unveiled Oracle Cloud in June after six years in development. Oracle followed up with the addition of an Infrastructure-as-a-Service tier as well as a private cloud option during OpenWorld 2012 in October.

Oracle said that Oracle Cloud is already being used each day by more than 25 million users and more than 10,000 organizations.
