Are you ready to immerse yourself in a world of innovation and insights? INFOCUS 2023, hosted by Quest, is just around the corner (September 27th – 29th), and it’s shaping up to be an event like no other. With the theme of bridging the gap between technology and practicality, this year’s event promises a plethora of enriching experiences for all attendees. From visionary keynotes to hands-on workshops, from networking opportunities to in-depth sessions, INFOCUS 2023 is set to redefine how you engage with the JD Edwards Community. We spoke with Jon Vaughn, Chief Executive Officer at Quest Oracle Community, for some behind-the-scenes information on this year’s event.

Can you tell us about the keynote speakers and special guests attending the event? What unique perspectives will they bring to the discussions?

Oracle’s Paul Houtkooper and Jeff Erickson will kick off INFOCUS 23 with the “Welcome & Roadmap” where they’ll share recent and future JD Edwards product improvements.

In addition, we’ll have an array of industry experts and innovative customer speakers like Penn Engineering, Monterey Mushrooms, Granite Construction, Philbro Animal Health and more.

How will INFOCUS 2023 differ from previous Quest events, and what exciting new elements can attendees look forward to this year?

INFOCUS 23 is back live and in person this year in Denver, CO and we couldn’t be more excited to engage face-to-face with the JD Edwards Community!

What are some of the key sessions or workshops scheduled during the event, and how will they address the challenges and opportunities faced by today's businesses?
