The Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) has represented the voice of data technologists and professionals for more than 20 years, and we are excited about how our community continues to grow and focus on peer-to-peer education and know-how. With that focus we are excited for our premier yearly event: COLLABORATE 17 – IOUG Forum.

Whether you are starting out in your career or are well-established, COLLABORATE is the only place to find all of the training, workshops and Oracle resources you need to successfully navigate the changing industry.

COLLABORATE is back again in Vegas this year and we are really excited about the innovative programming we have for 2017. Our conference committee members have worked hard to develop a strong educational program featuring sessions that address the challenges we all face day-to-day: how to expand to various roles outside of IT; the requirement for constant learning; the knowledge of leading practices spanning technologies; understanding the journey of Cloud, and more. 

Preview some of the sessions and topics in store by viewing the Agenda Builder.

IOUG will also have some of the same add-ons and special features that our attendees have come to know and love over the years, including:

  • IOUG Pre-Conference workshops, a complimentary day of workshops on 12c, Cloud, Data Virtualization and more for IOUG Forum attendees
  • Keynote presentations that will inspire you by leading industry speakers, including Jenn Lim, CEO and Chief Happiness Officer of Delivering Happiness and Steve Daheb, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud
  • IOUG’s Strategic Leadership Program, designed for senior DBAs, IT managers and seasoned professionals that are interested in getting a seat at the table with senior IT management discussing corporate strategy.
  • Sunday Night Welcome reception where you can network with fellow technology enthusiasts and make one-on-one connections with other users

We hope to see you at COLLABORATE 17 – IOUG Forum!
