Quest InternOracle Cloud Applications User Communityational Users Group, one of Oracle’s largest and most successful international user groups, has launched the Oracle Cloud Applications User Community (OC², pronounced “OC squared”). This new community was launched in response to rapid adoption of Oracle’s Cloud Applications. The independent organization will deliver its mission of helping Oracle Cloud Applications customers achieve higher levels of success and satisfaction with their Oracle investment(s) by delivering the best unbiased education, networking and advocacy for users across the globe. The community will be open to Oracle Cloud Application customers and vendors that offer complimentary solutions and services.

“We are finding more of our membership operating in a hybrid cloud environment, so we want to ensure there is a proven model of support for customers no matter what application they use today or in the future. All Oracle Cloud Applications customers, regardless of integrations, require a user community that can evolve along with their needs,” states Quest Chairwoman, Wendy Plante, a Senior Director at NYU Langone Health System, a hybrid Oracle customer.

Jeb Dasteel, Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at Oracle says, “Over and over again we see that user group members are by far the most active and satisfied customers in our entire customer base. One of the best things that any Oracle customer can do to maximize the value from their investment is to join a user group.”

OC² will employ an open framework allowing for partnerships with Oracle user groups needing to support their members’ ownership of Oracle Cloud Applications. The community leverages a variety of mediums to facilitate education and connections–customer to customer, customer to Oracle and customer to partners. Through virtual offerings and face to face educational events, OC² will serve the spectrum of the Oracle Cloud Application products. For more information, visit www.OC2.org.
