The Oracle Applications User Experience team has partnered with a sub-set of Oracle ACE Directors and Oracle solution consultants to create the OAUX Speakers program. These specially trained speakers have demonstrated a deep and ongoing commitment to understanding and educating customers about Oracle technology, whether in the database, the middleware, or the applications suite. Our speakers receive continuous, unique, and unparalleled training from the Oracle Applications User Experience team so that they may deliver presentations about the Oracle user experience, as it relates to their areas of expertise. They are committed to spreading the word about Oracle’s investment in user experience.
Each speaker customizes the user experience message for his or her particular technology focus, be it applications, database, or middleware.
You can catch OAUX Speaker presentations at user group conferences around the world, or request a presentation for your local group directly. Check the Usable Apps Events page for upcoming presentations by members of this group at a user group conference near you.
