Okta’s customers are doing amazing things. From rearchitecting internal IT strategies to connecting to distributor and supplier identities, you are transforming business for the cloud and mobile centric world we live in today — and we want to share your story at our upcoming customer conference, Oktane16. I invite you to submit your speaking abstract today and join 2,000+ peers and industry-leading businesses this August.  

Although it feels like Oktane15 just wrapped, we’re already looking forward to returning to Las Vegas for this year’s conference, taking place August 29 - 31 the Aria Resort and Casino. Our annual conference brings together innovative leaders to discuss the crucial role identity plays in connecting people and technology. And we need your help.

On top of hearing from our product experts, attendees  are eager to learn real-world experiences from their peers. In the past, we’ve had speakers from Dish, LinkedIn, MGM Resorts, 20th Century Fox, Post Foods, and Trunk Club. Last year at Oktane15, we had nearly 40 customers on stage, and those customer presentations are consistently crowd-favorites. This is a chance to share your vision for IT and the success you have had at your organization and approved speakers will also receive a free pass!

Past speaking sessions have centered on empowering IT leaders and application developers to fully unleash the potential of cloud and mobile in the enterprise. Ideas for sessions this year include:

  • Building a cloud-first identity management system
  • Making employees secure with multi-factor authentication
  • Empowering employees to be truly mobile
  • Connecting with your partners for building partner portals or
  • Strategizing with the C-suite in your organization to build a digital business

For now, you can visit oktane16.com, sign up for the mailing list for notifications, and register by May 31 to take advantage of early bird pricing. If you’re interested in speaking get in touch with us – we’d love to collaborate with you to create an informative, engaging session. Sessions are due May 16th.

Follow @OktaneConf and #Oktane16 for the latest news and updates. Or tweet @OktaneConf and let us know why you should be on the big stage. After that, get ready to join us for three days of immersive sessions and good times in Vegas!

FYI: Early bird registration price of $695 expires May 31, and we’re again expecting thousands of attendees across IT pros, cloud engineers, developers, and industry experts to come together. We know many Okta customers are eager to discuss what’s on the horizon for identity – I encourage you to mark your calendar with this deadline and register!
