That's because the event's purpose – bringing together solution partners and Oracle experts to create high-demand integrations – aligns with hoteliers' urgency to deliver new services that satisfy ever-changing guest and safety needs.
In other words, enabling hoteliers to rapidly integrate best-of-breed solutions, regardless of their origin, is the path forward. During Day 3 of Innovation Week, two Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) members – InnSpire and Nonius Hospitality Technology – underscored the importance of Oracle's commitment to open APIs and creating a diverse ecosystem of vendors. Both HTNG TechOvation winners, InnSpire and Nonius shared their advice for hospitality success with industry startups.
"What Oracle has done well is really opening up the APIs and opening up the business model in terms of how hotels and technology partners can cooperate and build an ecosystem together," said Martin Chevalley, co-founder and CEO of InnSpire, a Swedish company that focuses on digital tools, including apps, to help hoteliers enhance the digital guest journey. "The world has changed to become a very open platform where everyone brings their value to the table, and Oracle has an extremely important role pretty much being the center of all the data."
