Oracle Scene is the communications organ of UKOUG, written by users for users. It has a print run of 4,000 for each publication and is distributed to UKOUG members, subscribers, Oracle reception areas in the UK and Ireland, Oracle Consulting, as well as being used as promotional material by UKOUG.
Readership & circulation
The target audience is broad. We are predominantly here to serve UKOUG membership, which itself is diverse as a result of all Oracle's acquisitions. Increasingly, we are reaching the wider Oracle user communities overseas as awareness of our publication increases. Our readership is broken down as follows:
||Readership by job function
Other 5% (inc. Marketing, Training etc)
The publication proves a popular reference source and regularly features user stories, functional, technical and business & management articles, case studies, hints and tips, book reviews, event reviews, support and product news from Oracle, and much more.
Our membership survey results each year show that we need to carry content pitched at all levels. We have tended in the past to only carry highly technical content pitched at very experienced users and, whilst we want to continue doing so, we're also now trying to find a balance between this content and that for the more intermediate user. In addition to this, we're looking to source more business and management and functional content for our less technical readers.
There is a large community of technical apps practitioners, who lie between the classic ERP and technical communities, and as yet we do not carry regular content for this audience.
It is our aim to publish articles of user interest covering the Oracle product set, including PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel and Hyperion.
The best kinds of articles are those written by users for users - customer stories from both technical and end user perspectives, strategy-based articles, step by step articles, and ‘how to..’, hints and tips. Worked examples/case studies are always particularly well received.
UKOUG has phased out print subscriptions since the launch of our digital edition in March 2008. Instead we now offer an online subscription for £95.00 per annum. This provides you with access to the digital edition of Oracle Scene, the full Oracle Scene archive (from issue 1 to the current edition), as well as access to UKOUG library content and our other online resources.
