Can you reimagine your workforce to where it will be in 5 years, or even 2 years? New markets, new jobs, new ways to find jobs, having multiple jobs – what technology do you need to enable that? Chris Leone, senior vice president of Oracle Applications Development, will help you figure out how you can create your tomorrow, today.
