Oracle PartnerNetwork Kickoff

One of Oracle's big partner events takes place online tomorrow. The computer industry giant with a fast-growing channel program will hold its fourth Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Kickoff with five interactive events timed for different areas of the world.

The event starts Oracle's fiscal 2013 for both internal sales and for the channel and lays out some of the themes Oracle will expand on at the Oracle OpenWorld conference on Sept. 30-Oct. 4.

Judson Althoff, Oracle senior vice president of Worldwide Alliances and Channels, hosts the interactive events, which also include executive keynotes from Oracle President Mark Hurd and other senior executives. Other elements on the agenda are a recap of FY12, calls to action for FY13, business opportunity discussions for ISVs, OEMs, systems integrators and channel partners, and Q&A sessions.

The North American event starts at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time and will feature a studio audience of about 200 partners in addition to online participants. Registration is available here.
