  • Analytics, BI & Big Data SIG Chair, Kirby Lunger, Steps Down To Take Sabbatical on January 1, 2020

    Our SIG Chair, Kirby Lunger, is stepping down from our board and is going on sabbatical to pursue interests outside the Analytics/BI arena as of January 1, 2020. She has been a tireless volunteer for the OATUG for 10+ years and we want to thank her for her significant contributions. We have won a "SIG of Distinction" award every year under her leadership, and she was even named OATUG "Member of the Year" this year at Collaborate 19. While she will be sorely missed, we wish her only the best in her new endeavors. If you want to get in touch with her directly regarding her next chapter, please email her here.

    Our SIG Co-Chair, Jay Canupp, will be leading the charge, and with a dedicated, fully-staffed board of seasoned volunteers, we expect no service interruption from the SIG.  Please get in touch if you're interested in volunteering!

  • OAUG is now OATUG

    OAUG announced at COLLABORATE19 that they are now known as OATUG which means Oracle Applications and Technology Users Group.

    Why the change? It was determined that 40% of all sessions, webinars, and meetups are 40% technology content driven therefore the word technology was added to the name.

    In the coming months all GEO's and SIG's websites will reflect the new naming convention. For more information on OATUG’s name change, please see the following message from OATUG President, Doug Manning.
