COLLABORATE is one of our favorite conferences of the year. The week is filled with people from all industries and technologies; it’s truly a great space to share ideas and learn from each other.

At Insum, we are passionate about Oracle Application Express (APEX), and particularly in using APEX to customize Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS).  We presented two sessions last year on using APEX to build EBS extensions: 60 Minute APEX Extension for EBS & EBS Reports and Dashboards for the People & by the People. We’re looking forward to presenting even more sessions this year – see details below.

During this year’s conference, we’re offering complimentary 30 minute consultations with our EBS-APEX experts. If you want to meet one-on-one, reserve your spots before they fill up!

We’ll be at the Exhibitor Showcase at booth 1452, so please swing by our booth to say hello.  And, if you’re interested in using APEX to build EBS extensions, ask us about our recently launched “UP and Running with APEX and EBS” package, and also find out about our free EBS Integration package download.


COLLABORATE 17 creates community of helpful people all with innovative ideas to optimize your Oracle applications. Some of the brightest Oracle minds from around the globe come to Las Vegas to present their sessions. A few from Insum will be among that group and showcasing their E-Business Suite and Oracle Application Express knowledge. We’re looking forward to their sessions!
