Coming to the rescue of cash-strapped IT professionals unable to attend Collaborate 09 in Orlando (May 3-7) the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) announced it will be hosting virtual sessions. IOUG officials said that companies registering at least one employee for the conference are then eligible to set up virtual access for everyone in their organization.
The IOUG plans to offer 40 virtual sessions over the course of the conference. IT professionals interested in Webinar sessions, which range between 30 minutes up to two hours, can be customized to best suit their specific educational interests.
Conference officials explained that obtaining a license for one seat provides unlimited access to virtual sessions.
“We recognize companies everywhere are looking for ways to save. This option takes into account economic conditions while still allowing members to get value from networking, continuing education and best practice sharing,” said Ian Abramson, President of the IOUG.
Collaborate 09 organizers, which also include the Oracle Applications User Group and Quest International Users Group, said they expect 5,000 people to attend the conference to be held at the Orange County Convention Center West.
