Oracle Applications Users Group Members Connect to Find Answers

For the past 25 years, users of Oracle Applications have turned to the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) for education, networking, and influence. The OAUG helps members acquire knowledge and connections that help them do their jobs better and improve their organizations’ return on investment in Oracle Applications.

OAUG Geographic (Geo) and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are well-known as the place for members to share best practices; time-saving tips; and real-world, hands-on experiences with their peers. The member-developed content available through OAUG Geos and SIGs helps members find answers, solve problems, and save time and money.
