  • DCOAUG is now known as DCOATUG

    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.
