Seven sessions – the maximum allowed – demonstrate the digital transformation consultancy’s extensive Oracle capabilities

ST. LOUIS (April 18, 2018)Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it will lead a conference maximum seven sessions at COLLABORATE 18, April 22-26 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, to demonstrate its end-to-end business optimization solutions using Oracle’s Cloud and on-premises technologies.

Agility, innovation, and rapid time to market are critical to maintaining a competitive advantage and seizing market opportunities, and Oracle’s technologies enable organizations to move quickly and achieve more while spending less. Because Perficient employs a comprehensive portfolio of Oracle software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions – Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Business Intelligence and Analytics (BI), and Customer Experience (CX) – the company is well-positioned to help clients optimize their business processes, empower innovation, and institute efficiency and agility across the organization.

“We’re thrilled to return to COLLABORATE and equally excited to host the maximum number of sessions possible,” said Tom Munley, vice president, Oracle National Business Unit, Perficient. “This enables us to present the wide array of services Perficient offers around Oracle’s extensive suite of cloud and on-premises applications and present the Oracle success story from one of our clients. As COLLABORATE attendees will see, our services enable clients to control costs and have an agile framework that allows them to remain competitive in the digital world.”

COLLABORATE 18, the annual technology and applications forum for the Oracle community, unites three independent Oracle users groups – the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) and Quest International Users Group (Quest) – to educate and share best practices with Oracle business applications users.
