IOUG Offers Virtual Conference Option for COLLABORATE 12


The Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), a global membership organization that provides resources to help Oracle data management solutions users enhance the benefits they receive from Oracle technology, today announced the return of its popular COLLABORATE 12 - IOUG Forum Virtual Conference. Known to many as “Plug-in to Vegas,” this IOUG exclusive offering provides a means for organizations to bring entire database administrator (DBA) teams up to speed on key Oracle technology issues and build competencies without having to incur the travel and lodging expenses normally associated with live attendance at a conference.

COLLABORATE 12 - IOUG Forum combines Oracle education, Oracle training, networking opportunities and presentations from real-world users as well as Oracle subject matter experts. It is being held April 22-26, 2012 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

“IOUG's COLLABORATE Virtual Conference provides a tremendous value for our organization,” said Sridhar Annapantula of Boeing Corporation. “The Plug-In to Vegas option allows many of our employees who are unable to attend COLLABORATE in person experience the best Oracle training available at the conference right here in our office. With no need to disrupt the daily routine or worry about the hassle of booking travel, the virtual conference option is perfect for giving your office a valuable Oracle education experience.”

The virtual event offers live streaming of 40 hours of content across half-hour and one-hour presentations from COLLABORATE 12 speakers, covering a wide range of popular topics. Virtual attendees also have the ability to interact with speakers and subject matter experts via text-based chat. Sessions will also be archived for viewing by additional team members.

The cost to participate in the virtual event is $299 for a group seat license, which allows unlimited employee participation from a single location. Full registration information can be found on the IOUG Virtual Conference website.

COLLABORATE 12 is a joint conference on Oracle technology presented by IOUG, OAUG (Oracle Applications User Group) and the Quest International User Group.
