Board Candidate: Vikas Khurana

Vikas Khurana
Corporate Associate Member (Infosys Limited)

Professional Role & Oracle Products Used

I have always been close to Technology and a Hands-on individual. I am part of Oracle Consulting Group, both on Architecture as well as core Delivery of Large Transformational and Green Field Implementations. 
I started my career with Oracle and continue to learn Oracle product line by each passing day. Starting from Oracle EBS 11.0.3 days to latest of Oracle EBS releases, Oracle Fusion middleware, Oracle Databases, Oracle Fusion cloud, OCI and many more.

What makes the OATUG mission meaningful to you?

OATUG from its inception has always been the nucleus of Learning and Networking. Being part of this group for couple of decades, I have seen that this has helped me a lot professionally as well as personally. I have equally seen others getting benefited out of the multiple opportunities provided by OATUG. I would like to join this journey, learn with each other and spread it further. More importantly to those who are probably not aware of its existence and goals. I would be fortunate to embark this journey. 

Why are you running for the Board, and what skills, connections, resources and expertise do you have to offer the organization?

I would like to spread the common goal of OATUG and self to others and make them appreciate the power of networking. I have lead competency building initiatives in various capacities and that would help me collaborate well with others. I would be sharing my experiences of large transformational programs and multiple other initiatives I am part of. 

Other OATUG and Volunteer Experience:

    I have attended multiple OAUG, IOUG, Collaborate, Connection point, Ascend, Oracle Open World and OAUG Regional conferences like OAUG Apps Forums both as a Speaker and as an Exhibitor. 
    I have lead Competency building initiatives numerous times in my current Organization and I believe this will serve 
    as a foundation. I see myself as an evangelist who can share his learnings around various Oracle products, as well as Industry verticals.
