OAUG Announces Creation of OAUG General Ledger Special Interest Group
User-led community prepares for significant changes to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12’s impact on Oracle General Ledger
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), the world’s largest knowledgebase for Oracle Applications users, announces the formation of the OAUG General Ledger (GL) Special Interest Group (SIG).
“In order to mitigate any unplanned side effects resulting from feature changes to the GL module, the grassroots SIG brings users together to learn from experts and one another to enhance their financial control and reporting capabilities.”
The SIG was formed to help users transition to Oracle E-Business Suite R12 by providing a communications and educational forum. The SIG focuses on addressing the considerable GL changes in R12 but will evolve to address the broader function of reporting and the use of subledger accounting in managing the flow of data around GL in the near future.
The OAUG GL SIG holds quarterly Web conference meetings and connects with the greater community via a dedicated LinkedIn group and the OAUG listserver. Co-chairs Mohan Dutt, project manager of Mountain View, Calif.-based Verisign Inc., and Mohan Iyer, principle consultant at FSCP Solutions, lead the SIG.
The SIG holds its inaugural meeting at Oracle OpenWorld 2009 on Sunday, Oct. 11, at 10-11 a.m. at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The GL SIG meeting description is available on the Oracle OpenWorld 2009 content catalog. Search for session number S312689.
“Through the OAUG GL SIG, we are preparing and educating our members on any adjustments or challenges associated with the GL changes,” said Raymond Payne, president of the OAUG. “In order to mitigate any unplanned side effects resulting from feature changes to the GL module, the grassroots SIG brings users together to learn from experts and one another to enhance their financial control and reporting capabilities.”
