It’s always inspiring to see communities coming together around common interests and needs; this togetherness and shared interests created by communities such as Oracle User Groups is no different. These independent communities connect through networks and forums to provide peer support for members, share best practices, and discuss the latest updates and innovations in Oracle products.
Communities often focus on certain Oracle products and maintain lively discussions on internal forums. A notable example is Quest, a community committed to Oracle Cloud apps, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards. Founded in 1995, Quest boasts a lively website with more than 65,000 members that connect regularly.
We encourage Oracle users to join user groups as a way to grow and expand knowledge, and to develop a culture of learning and sharing your experiences. To show our appreciation for community members and leaders, we invite Oracle User Group members to be part of the User Group Champions program. Through this program you can enjoy the most comprehensive digital training and accreditation Oracle University offers.
