Oracle user-group emphasises independence with name-change

The International Oracle Users Group is changing its name to emphasise its independence and user-driven viewpoint.

The International Oracle Users Group is changing its name to emphasise its independence and user-driven viewpoint.

The name change will leave the initials of the database professionals’ organisation unchanged: it will become the Independent Oracle Users Group, with the new name set to be introduced at the Oracle OpenWorld event in San Francisco later this month.

The name change for the 12-year-old group came after a survey that attracted 16,000 responses from the Oracle community.

IOUG president Ari Kaplan said, “The IOUG has always served as the independent and credible source of information empowering developers, database administrators, architects and technical managers to do their jobs better.

“While our core membership of database administrators remains, our relevancy and benefits for the broader Oracle community, including developers and architects, has increasing importance to the IOUG.”

The IOUG will be co-locating next year’s annual education event with the Oracle Applications Users Group and the Quest International Users Group.
