Oracle 1000 Events: Applications World Tour to visit 27 cities across EMEA

London - 26 September 2006

Software leader emphasizes commitment to continued enhancements and lifetime support

Oracle is to take its “Applications Unlimited” message to conferences in 27 cities across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), starting on 27 September in Paris. The full-day events, which are part of Oracle’s 1000 Events Applications World Tour, are designed to discuss the company’s long-term commitment to its current products with customers of Oracle®, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and Siebel solutions and to inform them about the future product roadmap.

Applications Unlimited is a commitment from Oracle, the world’s leading enterprise software company, to provide continued enhancements to current Oracle Applications on an on-going basis. The program gives customers the choice of continuing to get value from their existing software deployments and then evolving to new technologies only when the time is right for them to do so.

“We are giving customers the best of both worlds – more value from their existing applications, which we plan to enhance indefinitely, and an option to upgrade free of charge to future technologies, when customers have a business case to do so,” said Sergio Giacoletto, Executive Vice President, Oracle EMEA. “We are also offering Lifetime Support, which enables customers to receive support for as long as they license Oracle software.”

More than 3,000 customers are expected to attend the events over the next two months. In addition to the kick-off event in Paris, the Applications Unlimited roadshow will visit Algiers, Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Birmingham, Brussels, Casablanca, Cologne, Copenhagen, Dubai, Dublin, Edinburgh, Geneva, Helsinki, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Manchester, Milan, Munich, Oslo, Prague, Rome, Stockholm, Warsaw and Zurich.
