The Quest Forum at COLLABORATE 14 is designed for and by PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and Oracle Fusion users to provide functional and technical education specifically for those communities. With over 22 tracks and more than 1200 sessions at your fingertips, there is something for everyone in your company:

  • C-level & Management: Do you manage a team of people who use PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Oracle Fusion or an edge product? COLLABORATE offers a macro-level view of the Oracle ecosystem, plus targeted education for strategic thinking. 

  • Functional Users: Do you use PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Fusion or an edge product but you aren't a member of your technical team? You are a functional user! At COLLABORATE, you have the opportunity to improve your day-to-day processes and increase efficiency through peer-to-peer networking, lectures, roundtables and more, specifically designed for users like you. 

  • Technical Users: Do you work with servers, integrations and upgrades? Welcome technical users! At COLLABORATE, you have the opportunity to fine-tune your skills while gathering best practices and fixes from others like you. You also have the opportunity to interact directly with Oracle and the people who developed your product.

  • "Techno-Functional" Users: Are you seen as both a technical and functional user by colleagues? Congratulations, you are a special techno-functional hybrid! COLLABORATE gives you innovative ideas and concepts to revolutionize your daily processes plus an inside look at what's coming next in the Oracle landscape. Plus, you can connect with other "techno-functional" users.

Also, for returning attendees don't forget that our days of the week have shifted this year to Monday through Friday. Questions? Contact us!
