Stay Competitive: Join Me at the COLLABORATE 10 – IOUG Forum

I invite you to join me at COLLABORATE 10 – IOUG Forum, April 18-22, 2010 in Las Vegas, NV.  As a member of the IOUG Board of Directors, I am excited to let you know about the educational content that the conference committee has created for the Forum.

You will have the opportunity to attend educational sessions in all of the tracks offered at COLLABORATE,  including: Application Strategy and Services, Infrastructure Technologies BI/Data Warehousing/EPM, Database, Development, Governance Risk and Compliance, Master Data Management/Application Integration and Professional Development.

The IOUG Forum does not only offer top-notch educational sessions that cover a variety of topics, but it’s also a great place to network with other Oracle professionals.  We are offering many exciting networking opportunities this year. Whether it’s a technical talk during a Birds of a Feather meeting or an informal conversation at the IOUG Welcome Event, the IOUG Forum is the place to meet contacts who can share solutions to your most pressing business questions.

The IOUG will not be the only user group present at the event. For the fifth consecutive year, the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) and Quest International Users Group (Quest) will be co-hosting this event, which means your registration through the IOUG also allows you to attend education sessions offered by these groups.

The main reason I attend is for the networking opportunities with my peers.  In all the years I have been attending IOUG events, the opportunity to discuss current technologies and best practices has been the best way I have found to keep myself current.  The technical content is also amazing.  These are people that are using the technology on a daily basis.

This isn’t some huge vendor show full of sales presentations…it’s presented by users like you and me. If you have been to IOUG events before, you know that we feature real-world education and best practices. There is far too much content to completely list, but you can visit the IOUG Forum Web site to view the most up-to-date education details.

Make sure to register to attend and join me at the IOUG Forum! Please visit the IOUG Web site for further details and to register. Be sure to register by March 18 to save $400 USD off the onsite rate, and choose priority code PC03 during the demographic section (step 4) of the registration process and gain access to a number of IOUG-exclusive offerings. Help me spread the word and send this information to your colleagues and friends who are Oracle users.

Please contact me or the IOUG headquarters at if you have any questions.

I hope to see you in Vegas!
