OHUG GLOBAL CONFERENCE 2012 RECAP: Motivate...Activiate...Participate
More than 1,300 Oracle HCM professionals were in attendance at the Mirage in Las Vegas, NV from June 18-22 for the OHUG Global Conference 2012. Considered by many to be the best OHUG conference to date, participants experienced five days of Oracle HCM product updates, enhanced professional growth, and an expanded HCM community network.

First-time attendees and OHUG veterans experienced user-led sessions with peers who shared firsthand knowledge. Attendees took advantage of Meet the Experts sessions where they were face-to-face with the Oracle team. Hands-on experience took center stage in the new Discovery Center with the Fusion HCM Application and User Productivity Kit. Major topics included Oracle E- Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Fusion HCM, and Taleo.
Sponsors and Exhibitors
The education offered at the conference was enhanced by the many sponsors and exhibitors, who brought an impressive lineup of Oracle HCM Product Line tools and services. New this year was the OHUG Block Party where participants could meet board members, sign up to become a volunteer, and join a SIG. The Social Networking Nook was the hub for YouTube interviews and learning more about Twitter.
Absolute Best Keynote Presentations
We were pleased to have keynote addresses by Chris Leone, senior vice president of applications development and Jason Blessing, senior vice president of talent management products, as well as product vision and roadmap keynote addresses by Oracle senior management team members including Gretchen Alarcon, Cliff Godwin, Tracy Martin, and Subraya (Shenoy) Yeltimar. We were honored to have the daughters of former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush, Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager, join us as this year’s closing keynote presenters.
Networking Opportunities Everyday
Networking events included a welcome reception, global breakfast, and closing reception. This year’s Member Appreciation Event was held at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville providing opportunities to sit and socialize, listen to live music, dance, and enjoy delicious “Floribbean” cuisine.
