Oracle & LogicalTech Back To The Future Breakfast Seminar Brisbane

What’s stopping you from upgrading your legacy Oracle platforms?

Are your ‘traditional’ Oracle applications and websites still languishing on legacy environments? Do you wish you could squeeze more life, better performance, and greater reliability out of these systems? Do you feel stuck or at risk with these systems? Are you conscious of the need to modernise?
