About the Ohio Valley OATUG

Who We Are

The OVOATUG is a group of financial, accounting, manufacturing, and information systems professionals dedicated to increasing the knowledge and understanding of the Oracle Applications.

What We Do

The OVOATUG will address topics relevant to the installation, implementation, configuration, support, and future direction of Oracle Applications & Technology and supporting products. This user's group will work to improve processes, documentation, software, and other items related to these topics through active participation in the Oracle enhancement process, development of materials and programs, the exchange of information, and other activities. The OVOATUG will cover a territory for the Southern half of Ohio (Columbus and South), all of Kentucky and all of Indiana, but all are welcome regardless of where you live.


In 2020 we are holding two meetings, in Louisville, KY on Thursday March 12, and at a date TBD probably in October in the Cincinnati/Dayton OH area. Our meetings are full day meetings beginning with registration at approximately 8:30 A.M. and lasting until approximately 4:00 P.M. 


A brief business meeting is held, followed by a keynote presentation and then session presentations and panel discussions throughout the day. Session tracks depend on speaker availability, but typically include Oracle E-Business Suite functional topics, Hyperion, and Oracle CRM.  Discussion tables are set up during lunch to allow people with similar interests or issues to network. 

Speaker Selection:

The following are guidelines that the OVOATUG Board Members generally use to select presentations for events:

  • Preference is given to User presentations
  • Preference is given to Consultant/User presentations
  • Preference is given to Consultant Use Cases
  • We try to only select 1 paper per company, preference is given to showcase a diverse population of companies from event to event.

The guidelines above are used per the discretion of the OVOATUG Board.
