In addition to featuring Oracle 12c New Security Features at this month's regular SOUG meeting, the SOUG and IOUG will be teaming up with our local Oracle team to host another all-day Oracle Event. The focus of this event will be connecting with your peers to see how they are using Oracle products to drive Innovation in their respective companies. Many of your peers are successfully overcoming the 80/20 habit to unlock innovation. Join us at Oracle Innovation Forum 2013 to hear their stories.

• Learn about the convergence of cloud, mobile, social, big data, and the “Internet of Things.”
• Discover how this convergence is driving the new digital economy
• Hear about companies who have successfully simplified their IT environments and transformed the way they do business to meet the challenge
• Get the latest Oracle product news and announcements

Simple IT = Great Innovation

When you simplify your IT environment, you can free up money and time to invest in the priorities that matter most to your business.

It’s time to get started.

Full details, as well as links to register, are available HERE.
Register now or call 1.800.820.5592 ext. 11954 to attend.

I'll be manning the SOUG/IOUG booth in the vendor area, so be sure to stop by and say "Hi"!


With the departure of Knowlege Systems from the Tampa market, we are moving our standard meeting location and day of the week. The great folks at New Horizons Computer Learning Center have generously offered to host our meetings in their facility at 5402 West Laurel Street, Suite #200, Tampa, FL 33607.

Our meetings will be held on the 4th Tuesday of each month starting with the March 2013 meeting.


How many miles has your SOUG backpack travelled?
When we are selecting our conference gear for TechDay, one of our goals is to provide something that would have a useful life beyond the day's event. For at least these attendees, we seem to have attained our goal.

Long-term member John Rehg started this theme by sending me these pictures of his SOUG backpack in Kaua'i, Hawaii a couple weeks after our event.

Charter member Mary Schilling raised the bar (or at least the altitude) by sending me these pictures from her recent visit to Machu Picchu, Peru.

If you've got a picture of your SOUG gear you'd care to share, mail us a copy. We'd love to hear from you.

The Suncoast Oracle Users' Group (SOUG) aims to further the relationship between Oracle users and partners and to actively promote and enhance the mission and objectives of the International Oracle Users' Group (IOUG) in the Tampa Bay region of Florida. 

SOUG provides the forums and programs that encourage the sharing of knowledge and skills amongst database administrators, applications developers, technical managers and other individuals who have interest in Oracle software, development tools, and applications.
