The US conference is one month away and the OTM SIG Board has been diligent in planning the three-day agenda. There are a few exciting new additions to the 2014 Conference. For the first time, user training will be offered the afternoon of Wednesday, August 13, following the conference. This has already proved to be a popular addition as the registration has reached capacity in two of the four classes. Another exciting addition is an exclusive speaker breakfast with the Oracle Development team and OTM SIG Board Chair.
The Board is excited to confirm Bonner Paddock as the keynote speaker on Tuesday, August 12. He has an inspirational story and is a highly sought after speaker.

We are asking transportation planners, managers, and business analysts with a role in transportation planning and execution processes to provide feedback on OTM’s new UI designs. Activities will include reviewing the UIs and workflows for shipment management. The objective for this activity is to get input from users of OTM, so that Oracle can provide better solutions for end users.
The OTM SIG Board is preparing a one-day OTM User Conference in Singapore in October 2014, and we would appreciate your help to identify the appropriate venue based on interest from clients and partners. Key representatives from OTM Strategy and Development are invited to attend this conference, and various partners in OTM’s ecosystem will sponsor this event. This conference will be an addition to the annual OTM conferences in the US and Europe and allow us to better serve the APAC region. Please help us by taking our survey.
Dell did a presentation about their lessons learned from their OTM implementation on the EMEA/APAC webinar this past June. Presentation slides are available on request. More information.
The July webinar has been canceled in order for the Board to focus on creating the best conference experience possible. Mark your calendars for the next webinar scheduled for October 14, 2014.
