Call for Board Candidates is open!

The OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG invites you to join four (4) of your fellow colleagues and contemporaries to represent a collective membership of over 500 companies dedicated to promoting, shaping and leading the future of the Oracle family of applications.  As an OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG board member, you join a dedicated team of professional users working together to:

  • facilitate training, education, and networking among the user community
  • influence Oracle on product direction and strategy
  • be a conduit for recommended enhancements to Oracle products or processes 
  • provide feedback to Oracle from the user community 

The OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG is seeking four (4) diligent, resourceful and dedicated professionals to help lead our association into the future. Each board member is elected for a 2-year term and will join four (4) other current board members who will be serving their remaining terms. To ensure continuity of the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG's direction and strategy, we do not replace our entire board membership at the same time. Rather, every 2 years a portion of the board is re-elected. Regular participation in conference calls is required as well as attendance at board meetings and more frequent meetings leading up to meetings like COLLABORATE. This averages to approximately 2 to 4 volunteer hours per month and is essential for the board to function properly and to be successful in all of its endeavors. As a board member, one needs to support the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG goals by taking an enthusiastic role in the activities that help continually provide value to the Oracle user community. Giving a presentation at OAUG COLLABORATE annual conferences, mentoring new members and encouraging other users to participate in the EPM/Hyperion SIG and the OAUG are just a few ways that board members can display leadership to the greater EPM/Hyperion SIG membership and contribute to the user group’s growth and success.  

Application Process: If you would like to help shape the future direction of the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG, please include the following information in an e-mail or Word document and submit via e-mail to Geo/SIG Manager at This email address is being protected from spambots.

* Ballots will be sent to email addresses of individuals who are members of the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG and meet the above requirements. This will include a voting key. Voting keys are a unique identifier that ensures only you can vote and that the vote can only be submitted once. If a voting key is used more than once, all votes will be discarded.
* Elections will end on July 11, 2018. The OAUG will tally all votes and provide information about the newly elected board members to the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG by July 23, 2018. Results will be announced to membership July 25, 2018. We look forward to receiving your response.

Join us for our February webinar!

Join us on February 23rd at 1PM EST for our OAUG Hyperion SIG Webinar: Introduction to the EPM On-Prem/Cloud Hybrid Deployment with Eric Helmer!

Recent cloud offerings have introduced many options companies have to deploy, maintain, and integrate EPM systems. With so many options from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and traditional on-premise systems, customers are striving to understand the most cost-conscious solution without sacrificing security, stability, and performance. The truth is that there is no one-size fits-all and for the foreseeable future, companies will be opting for a best-of-breed mixed hybrid solution that makes the best sense. Join Oracle ACE Director Eric Helmer as he walks through each model, the pros and cons, and real world case studies of how it can all work together in this in-depth unbiased evaluation of the new hybrid cloud phenomenon. 

Presenter: Eric Helmer, Mercury Technology
