Of the conference's more than 1,200 educational sessions featuring product training across the entire family of Oracle Applications, this year's event introduces three new and innovative ways to learn.

In the three-part Exploration Series covering Approvals, Master Data and International operational difference in Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS), presenters work collaboratively to explore a topic in detail across several sessions on a single day. The Approvals series explain the various methods of approval for transactions and how to deal with issues in the approval request process and retention of the history. The Master Data series explains how to make the appropriate setup decisions for your environment for Oracle EBS Release 12 and cloud. The International series, programmed in collaboration with DOAG, explores how to operate globally in a multi-culture, multi-legislative environment.

Also, users are encouraged to join the Power Hours, which are two-hour sessions following a presentation where participants work together in small groups to collaborate on idea generation and solving real challenges.

Another inventive way to get the most out of your conference experience is to check out the Learning Journeys. The four journeys explore emerging issues related to cloud, mobility, security and big data.

"COLLABORATE 16 presents current, valuable information on the most pressing issues impacting Oracle customers in a format that provides conference attendees a unique, individual learning experience," said Dr. Patricia Dues, president of the OAUG.
