The Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) has represented the voice of Oracle technologists and professionals for more than 20 years, and we are so proud of how our community has not just grown but maintained its adaptive approach that centers on peer-to-peer education and know-how. We hope that you share our sense of pride as we celebrate the technology community’s marquee event: COLLABORATE 16-IOUG Forum.
COLLABORATE is quite literally the perfect conference for Oracle technologists to expand skill sets and bring back timely and insightful solutions to business problems. There are so many passionate and experienced Oracle technologists within IOUG who contribute to the user-focused content. Whether you are starting out in your career or are well-established, COLLABORATE 16-IOUG Forum is a unique and meaningful opportunity to sharpen and expand knowledge, protect your organization’s data, and improve performance, as well as assess upgrades, migrations, and new technology innovations as one can only do at a peer-to-peer-led event.
COLLABORATE 16 is returning to Las Vegas again this year, and we are excited about another great event. The theme this year is about the journey to COLLABORATE and the journey you take throughout your career. Each day of COLLABORATE will focus on a different hot topic within our industry and will allow you, if you choose, to attend sessions that spotlight this topic.
Our conference committee members have outdone themselves with an incredible lineup of speakers presenting sessions on themes that bring together groups of sessions that will provide an in-depth, organized approach to education at an individual’s level, such as Oracle Fundamentals, Keeping Your Database Up and Running, Getting OEM Up and Running, and more. Our speakers represent the best thought leadership and expertise in the Oracle community, and we cannot thank them enough for their contributions.
IOUG is also keeping all of these offerings that our attendees have come to know and love over the years, including these:
