It’s ALL YOU at Oktane17

Todd McKinnon
CEO & Co-Founder

Our fifth annual customer conference Oktane17 is just a month away and I’m looking forward to seeing you all there. Oktane has always provided an opportunity for you — our customers — to learn from each other, get hands-on training, and discuss how you’re solving your most critical challenges. And this year’s theme, “all you,” focuses on how you as IT leaders, developers and security executives are transforming your organizations and industries.

Todd on the main stage

I’ll talk about this in my opening keynote, as well as unveil some exciting updates to the Okta Identity Cloud. We’re focused on expanding our capabilities for both the modern IT stack and modern software stack, so we’ll have news for those of you enabling your people to use the most innovative tools, and those of you building the next great app for your business.

We also have a great lineup of keynote speakers, including Ben Horowitz, Steve Kerr, Megan Smith, Rainn Wilson, Reshma Saujani and Chris Hardwick. Whether you’re a diehard Warriors fan like I am, an avid follower of “The Office,” or passionate about closing the tech gender gap, there will be something for you on the main stage.

Something else I’m excited about: our first-ever AppDev track, in which our platform team will share insight into our post-Stormpath product roadmap, along with sessions on designing REST APIs and seamless registration experiences. And you’ll hear from our extended product team, customers like Lyft and John Deere, and partners like Palo Alto Networks and F5 Networks, across a variety of other tracks including Access, Lifecycle, Security, Mobility, Training, and Customer Success. Our team shared more about these specific tracks in a series of videos so you can start planning your agenda.

On top of all this, our Education Services team has added more pre-conference training options, and we’re offering the opportunity to get certified onsite. Of course, we’ll also provide plenty of opportunities to network with your peers in the Expo Hall, meet with our team, and have some fun at our customer appreciation party.  

It’s shaping up to be a great event, and you can learn more about it from our team here:
