OUG Scotland is done and dusted for 2017!

27 June 2017

OUG Scotland 2017 took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow last week on 21 June. Just over 180 attendees were at the event to take part in some fantastic sessions, covering everything up and coming in the community.

OUG Scotland 2017 delegatesThis year’s event offered six streams of content and two Oracle led keynotes, tailored individually to our Applications and Technology audiences. With sessions from 40 industry experts and Oracle ACEs, the agenda covered content around APEX, Database, Development, Business Analytics & EPM, Cloud Applications and Oracle E-Business Suite Applications. The morning began with two keynotes, kicking off with a discussion around the latest release of Oracle Database 12c (Gerald Venzl & Patrick Wheeler) and an update on Oracle E-business Suite (Nadia Bendjedou).

We were delighted to hear that the event went exceptionally well, with some of the most well-received sessions including:
• APEX 5.2 presented by Hillary Farrell, Oracle and an introduction to its new features and updates.
• Combining Cloud Based Data with On Premises Analytics presented by Kiran Tailor, CIMA. A how-to on retrieving cloud data to premise and managing an exalytics engineered system with 13c.
• Running Your E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud (IaaS + PaaS) presented by Nadia Bendjedou, Oracle, who showed the value of coupling Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Cloud offerings.

“Great opportunity to meet fellow Oracle users and gain an understanding of how they utilise applications.”

“Go attend, enjoy, learn and pass it on.”
