Oracle Higher Education User Group (HEUG) Alliance Conference Preview

We’re only a week away from the Oracle Higher Education User Group (HEUG) Alliance 2019 conference, taking place from March 3rd to March 6th at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin in Orlando, Florida! Alliance is the largest annual meeting of Higher Education, Public Sector, and Federal users of Oracle solutions in the world.  Our team has attended this conference for over ten years, so we’re very well-prepared to provide some “insider tips” on “must-sees” at the conference.

The first of these is to attend the community mingle sessions on Sunday afternoon.  These sessions are organized according to HEUG Product Advisory Group (or “PAG”) subject areas. As the HEUG web site mentions, the PAGs are “composed of representatives from HEUG member institutions with expertise in various product modules and technical areas within the world of Oracle application software” (more information on PAGs is available here).  This is a great way to meet other subject matter experts and to learn more about the content at the conference related to your area of interest.

The conference is large and offers tons of fantastic content, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed if you don’t plan your activities.  We strongly recommend that you use the Alliance Mobile App to organize your time.  We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that you should add the Performance Architects sessions with our clients to your schedule, including:

  1. Dual Paths to The Cloud: Oracle PBCS and Analytics Cloud at the University of Pittsburgh (6011), Monday, March 4, 1:15 PM – 2:15 PM

  2. How Rutgers Transformed Finance with Oracle EPM Cloud (ARCS, FCCS, PCMCS, EPBCS, EPRCS) (5972), Tuesday, March 5, 1:15 PM – 2:15 PM

We also recommend that you make some time to check out the Solution Center (Exhibit Hall) to see what’s going on in the software and services arena.  The Performance Architects team will be at Booth 808.  We would be delighted to finally meet those of you in person who we haven’t yet met, and to reconnect with those of you we haven’t seen in a while!

Speaking of connecting, Performance Architects is also hosting a special, invite-only event at the conference and we’re happy to schedule time to meet with you at the event.  If you’re interested in learning more, please send us a note here and we’ll get in touch with more information.
