After 36 years of servicing Oracle Users in Australia, AUSOUG today announces its 2018 conference series.  With a balanced program of real world user presentations, Oracle updates and announcements, the Connect 2018 series provides the only unbiased, collaborative forum for Oracle users to share, learn and explore the changing opportunities available from Oracle and its partners this year.

These events will provide you with an unprecedented opportunity to gain detailed knowledge and skills, covering Oracle’s latest announcements from Open World 2018, 12c Database new features, Cloud based services and practical training, plus much more.
The AUSOUG Connect 2018 Conferences have a focus on bringing together our Oracle community, and servicing their core technical, development and applications needs through presentations and training.  A balanced program is aimed at all levels of skill and experience within a forum of User led independent knowledge sharing.

 Opportunities to NETWORK with other Oracle professionals


We will provide you with a full day of information, presentations, case studies from the real world, hints and tips, and much more. With sessions from Oracle, Solution Integrators (SI) and Users.

You will hear from renowned international and Australian speakers who will be headlining our Oracle User Group conference program in Victoria and Western Australia; including Oracle ACE’s, International visionary leaders and Oracle Beta Program participants.

There will be opportunities to engage with a number of vendors in the showcase of products and services at both conference events.

Presenters and vendors will share with attendees the 'must-know' insights and experiences on trending Oracle products.  We will provide sessions that explore Oracle’s and its competitors Cloud solutions, highlighting opportunities and pitfalls that face organisations as they venture into a services based procurement model and away from the traditional internal controls.

 Attending will help boost your organisational and personal Oracle productivity and skills.
