Haven’t you registered yet for the OTM Conference Europe or didn’t you book your hotel room in the Twickenham Marriott?

The OTM Conference Europe is less than two weeks from now and Friday 27th February is the last day to benefit from the discounted registration rate of $595. Furthermore, we have to release our hotel room block this Friday because of the high demand for the rugby match just after the conference, so if you wait until next week the hotel will probably be sold out.

2015 European OTM User Conference

The OTM SIG Board is organizing the European OTM User Conference near London, UK on 11-13 March 2015, which is the third OTM/GTM event in Europe to better serve the region following our Amsterdam events in 2013 and 2014. Key representatives from OTM/GTM Strategy and Development will attend this conference, and various partners in OTM’s ecosystem will sponsor this event. This conference is an addition to the yearly OTM conferences in the U.S. and APAC.

The event is designed to bring together users and potential users of the OTM software to share knowledge, ideas and experiences. With anticipated attendance of more than 120 people, this event is the perfect place to find answers to your questions, talk to implementation partners, and meet with Oracle representatives and collaborate on ideas for future upgrades.

The OTM User Conference will be held in the same week and in the same venue as the Oracle Value Chain Summit, so please consider this in preparing your trip. The Oracle European Value Chain Summit brings together thought leaders, executives, and business process owners along with industry and technology experts in an intimate and interactive setting.

The example presented demonstrates how OTM can make cost-based decisions on how to route a given order release through a network as a function of the other orders flowing simultaneously on the network.
