FEATURES Summer 2019

Meet the OATUG

The addition of the “T” in our new name reflects how our users group has evolved over time to respond to the growing knowledge and skill sets our members need to do their jobs effectively. It reflects work that is already happening with our user-led and user-developed educational programming and highlights the work of our technology-focused special interest groups (SIGs).

However, the name change is not necessarily about Applications or Technology – it’s about “YOU.”

The OAUG is now the Oracle Applications & Technology Users Group (OATUG), a new name that better reflects the functional diversity of those we serve and the breadth of content offered. As President Doug Manning explains in his blog, Transformation in Motion: OAUG is Now OATUG, this is a community of people powering progress.

People Powering Progress graphic
As a user group, OATUG empowers you to accelerate success for your teams, your organization and the people you serve by helping you connect with:

  • Experienced peers.
  • Expert resources.
  • Oracle product development and licensing teams.

And those connections mean:

  • You don’t have to figure things out on your own.
  • You don’t have to take an expensive and time-consuming trial-and-error approach.
  • You don’t have to “Google” answers, hoping you’ve stumbled on a reliable source of information.
