IOUG Insight: You’re Invited to the Premier Event of the Year for Oracle Users

Hundreds of educational sessions, countless networking opportunities, and numerous Oracle executives and top IT Solution Providers-all under one roof. Join us for the premier conference of the year for Oracle users: COLLABORATE 09-IOUG Forum, taking place May 3-7, 2009, in Orlando, Fla.

Different from other conferences, COLLABORATE is completely focused on the customer. This means its program is by users and for users. There are no sales pitches or marketing slides, just best practices, tips, and information needed to be more proficient in your daily job role.

This year the IOUG is presenting more than 350 educational sessions across seven tracks - Architecture and Infrastructure, Business Intelligence/Warehousing, Database, Development, Middleware, Professional Development, and Governance Corporate Compliance (GCC) - which cover an array of products such as 11g, 10g, RAC, and more. With session speakers who are Oracle experts, you're guaranteed to gain the knowledge needed to solve your business challenges. And, as an IOUG registrant, you also have access to educational content, presented by COLLABORATE's co-hosts, the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) and Quest International Users Group (Quest).

In addition to top-notch education, networking opportunities are abundant at the IOUG Forum. Whether it's a technical talk during an Ask the Experts session or an informal conversation at the "Tuning" Open Mic Night, the IOUG Forum is a catalyst for relationship-building and gaining lifelong contacts, who share solutions to your most pressing business questions.

Be prepared to meet with not only your peers, but with hundreds of IT Solution Providers in the Exhibitor Showcase. This is the perfect opportunity to learn about the latest products and services that can help you with your typical job functions. The keynotes by top Oracle executives also promise to provide key insights you can take back to the office with you.

While we realize these are challenging economic times, we'd like to emphasize the value of attending the IOUG Forum. It truly is the one-stop-shop for Oracle customers, saving you both time and money.

We hope you'll join us in Orlando!
