Cloud 2020: Where We’re Going from Here

Just like that, the year 2020 is around the corner. Before we get there, Terillium is bringing the unique “TED Talk” style to COLLABORATE19. Through three concise talks, this super session will cover emerging cloud ERP trends, top 3 considerations for your cloud strategy, as well as a real-life case study.

From practical tips on cost, security and modern ERP capabilities – to a discussion on the future, where your interaction with ERP will involve less typing and more voice commands. We’ll cover AI and the imminent implications for the Oracle community as far as machine learning, IoT, and what the future of ERP holds.

  • Learn how the cloud is “taking over.” Gain 3 practical, strategic tips.
  • Discover emerging trends related to cloud ERP – presented by a major ERP selection firm as they share what they’re seeing in the tech marketplace.
