The company will use the conference in San Francisco to put forward its vision of how users should build systems based on a service oriented architecture using a 10g grid database.
Oracle will also explain its new policy that patches will be issued on a three-month cycle.
Patricia Dues, president of the Oracle Application User group in the US, told Computer Weekly that Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and shared services for IT would be the event's major themes.
Ronan Miles, chairman of the UK Oracle User group, said, "We want to hear about grid licensing, particularly how it might work in heterogeneous environments."
He also wanted an update on Oracle's bid for PeopleSoft. "We are keen to hear how existing users of both suites can absorb the change with business benefits." If the takeover does not go ahead, said Miles, "Oracle will have a big cash mountain. Where will it spend it?"
