The Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) has announced that Oracle will have a prominent role at COLLABORATE 15: Technology and Applications Forum for the Oracle Community, which runs April 12 – 16 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
COLLABORATE 15 is jointly hosted by the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) and Quest International Users Group (Quest).
Oracle CEO Mark Hurd and Oracle SVP and CIO Mark Sunday are confirmed as keynote speakers for the users groups’ flagship conference.
On Tuesday, Sunday will discuss the need to keep a leadership edge in digital transformation, with a special focus on IT leadership in the cloud. Sunday will build upon his keynote from two years ago, giving attendees better insight into adopting a sound cloud strategy in order to ensure greater success.
On Wednesday, Hurd will share his insights on how Oracle continues to drive innovation and protect customer investments with applications and technology. Oracle remains the leading organization in the cloud, and Hurd’s discussion focuses on how to modernize businesses in order to thrive in this space.
According to the OAUG, Oracle will also host 12 “Meet the Oracle Experts” sessions in which Oracle representatives discuss topics such as E-Business Suite Technology Stack, Extensions for Oracle Endeca, Procurement, Financials, Manufacturing and Project Portfolio Management among others. These sessions are highly interactive and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
New this year, the My Oracle Support Accreditation Learning Series will give attendees the opportunity to accelerate their knowledge of Oracle products and Support framework and take the accreditation tests for key product areas.
Additionally, the Oracle User Experience Usability Lab, Oracle Product Roadmap Sessions, Oracle Proactive Support Sessions and the Oracle DEMOgrounds in the Exhibitor Showcase will provide venues for conference attendees to interact face-to-face with Oracle employees to learn about new resources, products, functionality and strategies.
“COLLABORATE 15 will provide an unparalleled opportunity for attendees to learn and network with each other, but also to meet with Oracle executives, product leaders, support engineers and developers,” said Melissa English, president of the OAUG. “The OAUG was formed 25 years ago to connect Oracle customers with the purpose of communicating collective experiences with each other and with Oracle, and we are thrilled that Oracle continues to remain such an active partner throughout our 25 years.”
