Orlando recently attracted hundreds of service provider executives -- not for the latest rides at Disney or Universal, but for a chance to hear about New IP network transformation from some of the biggest service providers in the industry, see some of the newest Oracle and Amdocs technologies, mingle with peers and partners and chat with executives from the hosting companies.
Oracle Corp. (Nasdaq: ORCL) kicked off Oracle Industry Connect with an evening cocktail party, followed the next day by an early morning yoga session. But then it was down to business, with sessions on everything from compliance and NFV to cloud and business transformation.
The Amdocs Ltd. (NYSE: DOX) Americas Summit was a more intimate affair, with about 200 executives at the Orlando Hilton. CIOs from Vodafone, Sprint and Telefonica shared their stories from the stage, while partners such as VMware displayed their wares.
