Report from OAUG COLLABORATE

Inspirage a Star Elite Sponsor for OAUG COLLABORATE14

This year’s OAUG COLLABORATE Conference was hosted at the Venetian and Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas April 7-11th, and Inspirage was there. COLLABORATE14 was produced by three of Oracle’s most influential user groups — Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), The Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), and Quest International Users Group (Quest).

Literally hundreds of educational sessions were presented throughout the week — with Inspirage team members and some of our valued customers among the roster of experts sharing leading-edge case studies and innovative solutions. Members of our team presented on topics as diverse as Rapid Planning, OTM, Lean Manufacturing and Value Chain Planning. 2014-04-08 06.37.10Case studies were presented, some in tandem with customers Joan Stevens of USDP, Brian Hatfield of Hunter Fan, Terri Frigaard and Karina Wu of Life Technologies, and Karyn Guttman of Diodes Corporation, to name a few. Other Inspirage customers led independent sessions.  See Speaker List

Meanwhile, back at the Exhibitor Showcase we enjoyed networking with customers and colleagues. The showcase opened with a reception Tuesday evening and was buzzing with activity on Wednesday and Thursday.

In the evenings, we relaxed and enjoyed excellent cuisine with colleagues and friends in the surreal atmosphere of the Grand Canal Shoppes adjacent to the Expo center.

We would like to thank everyone who attended this year’s conference, and look forward to connecting next year at COLLABORATE15.
