New Initiative Reinforces Important Role of Oracle Independent User Groups Worldwide

With 900+ user groups worldwide, the Oracle user group community offers an environment for all customers to network, share information and best practices. The community also serves as a key source of feedback that helps Oracle enhance products, services and the overall experience customers have with Oracle. The company supports the development of its independent user group community in a variety of ways and has recently established an initiative to promote new and innovative programs that increase customer engagement, education and membership. The Independent Oracle User Group (IOUG) and the Belgium Java User Group (BeJUG) are among the first to be recognized by Oracle for their inventive programs promoting Oracle Engineered Systems and Java education for kids.

The Belgium Java User Group (BeJUG) and the Independent Oracle User Group (IOUG) will receive development funding through the Oracle User Group Membership Initiative to further develop user engagement and education through innovative new programs.

Headquartered in Oostkamp, Belgium, BeJUG will expand its focus on Devoxx4Kids, a creative initiative designed to teach computer programming to children between 10 and 14 years of age.

The Devoxx4Kids program aims to provide a fun environment for children to learn computing programing and includes sessions where children can develop computer games in Java, program robots and receive an introduction to electronics.

Devoxx4Kids sessions have grown in popularity with sessions delivered in Western Europe, Asia, Canada and the United States.

Devoxx4Kids was also one of the winners of the 2013 Duke's Choice Awards.

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the IOUG will further expand educational content and awareness of Oracle Engineered Systems and drive engagement with the Oracle User community across multiple channels.

The IOUG and its Exadata Special Interest Group (SIG), which has grown to more than 7,000 members since its inception in 2010, is running an innovative membership initiative that offers education and training for database professionals on areas including the business cases for using Engineered Systems, guidelines for the first time user, and tips and tricks for using Oracle Exadata.

The comprehensive program combines virtual, live and on-demand recorded sessions with several publications dedicated to Oracle’s engineered systems. Reinforcing its commitment to education and best practices sharing for Oracle’s engineered systems, the IOUG also makes online resources available among members of affiliated international user groups across the world.

Oracle user groups and their affiliates interested in nominating programs for future awards can find information on the Oracle User Group Membership Initiative by visiting iouc.org, the community site for the International Oracle User Group Community Leaders. An independent committee of experienced user group leaders reviews and prioritizes all proposals. Oracle then judges entries with special consideration given to collaboration between groups, new community creation, education initiatives and programs to integrate newly acquired companies’ user groups.

Supporting Quotes
“The Devoxx community is thrilled to receive funding to promote Devoxx4Kids worldwide,” said Stephan Janssen, President, BeJUG. “This innovative program will help students understand and explore the world of computer programming.”

“The IOUG’s primary goal is to support our members’ needs, including education on emerging technologies like Engineered Systems,” said IOUG President Michelle Malcher. “The changing skills needed to manage the next generation of Oracle hardware and software will have a huge impact on the role of database professionals, but IOUG’s members will be ahead of the curve because of these types of programs.”

“Customers join user groups to network and share best practices for implementing and using Oracle’s hardware and software solutions, and they represent Oracle’s most active and involved customers. The entire user group community also serve as a key input for Oracle customer feedback that results in enhanced Oracle products, services and streamlined business practices,” said Jeb Dasteel, chief customer officer at Oracle. “We are honored to help encourage new ideas to further the value users groups bring to Oracle customers.”
