While we are still working out what our new normal will be, that is not stopping us from continuing to bring the Tamapa Bay/St.Petersburg area top quality Oracle learning. With the support of our good friends at Viscosity, we will be hosting a lunch and learn at Ruth's Chris, St.Petersburg, on November 16. With three Oracle ACEs presenting and Ruth's Chris supplying the lunch, this will definitely be an event not to miss.

Craig Shallahamer will be kicking us off with the latest in Machine Learning and Observabilty. Craig will provide demos and a quick dive into each of the three major parts of ML. We'll spend time on topics focused on maximizing the value of your data, delivering timely outcomes, and ultimately achieving success for your organization.

Next up, Charles Kim and Troy Ligon will share some real-world case studies discussing how they've improved performance, scalability, and availability by implementing Oracle MAA Gold/Platinum architectures leveraging Oracle's Exadata Database Machine, Global Data Services, Active Data Guard, and GoldenGate tools.

Also note, this session is a teaser to a half day performance workshop that will follow in January 2023.

SOUG's World is Changing !!!

Our long-term host, Guardian Eagle, has been acquired by Michigan-based Centroid, Inc. We wish their new owners the same great success that Eagle has enjoyed in the past.

While this is great news for the folks at Eagle and Centroid, it does have some not so great implications for SOUG. With the acquisition, Centroid has vacated Eagle's local St.Pete offices with no plans to open a physical office in the local area. SOUG is currently searching for alternate meeting locations.

The SOUG website is currently hosted on Eagle's infrastructure which is being decommissioned, so we are also searching for alternative website hosting. If we go off the air briefly during this process, fear not, we'll be back as soon as we can work out the logistics.

Guardian Eagle was also providing us use of their MS Teams infrastructure to host our virtual meetings, so we are seeking an alternative for that as well.


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.
