Founded in 2018, the Oracle Industries Innovation Lab is a state-of-the-art facility that brings together customers, partners and in-house experts to collaborate and accelerate technology innovation. Based outside of Chicago in Deerfield, IL, the hands-on space enables teams to experiment and “fail fast to learn fast” across industries such as construction and engineering, utilities and communications.

CHALLENGE

Building Brand Awareness And Affinity In A Virtual World

When Oracle Industries Innovation Lab launched three years ago, the founding team set out on a mission to position the lab as an innovator and trusted leader in the technology industry.

 

To grow brand awareness and build meaningful relationships with prospects and customers, the team was in need of a live video solution to easily bring their community together to share innovative ideas on LinkedIn Live.

 

“On LinkedIn, you have to provide content as much as you consume it,” says Burcin Kaplanoglu, Vice President at Oracle Industries Innovation Lab.

 

While Burcin and his team searched for an intuitive LinkedIn Live streaming solution tailored to their business needs, they encountered several challenges such as:

  • High video production time and complexity

  • Lack of security and compliance benefits, such as SSO (Single-sign On)

  • Inability to integrate with Oracle’s product and teams

  • Inability to capture, produce and broadcast live video from mobile devices

 

SOLUTION

Using Socialive To Produce High-Quality LinkedIn Live Content

Oracle partnered with Socialive, a preferred LinkedIn Live partner, as a solution to produce high-quality live video content for its LinkedIn showcase page, Oracle Construction and Engineering (13K+ followers) as well as Burcin’s own personal LinkedIn profile (10K+ followers). 

 

Hosted by Burcin, the monthly interviews feature partners who discuss the latest technology trends and innovation in construction. Each segment ranges from 25 to 35 minutes. Some examples include guests from:

By leveraging key Socialive features — especially, remote video capture, the ability to mix live and recorded video, branded graphics, and split-screen layouts — Oracle enhanced its video content to provide its LinkedIn community with value and industry knowledge. 

“I like that Socialive gives you full control when live streaming in real time. All you need is a phone and the Socialive app.”
