About US

The New Zealand Oracle Users Group was founded in 1989. This independent group is for all Oracle users and is a forum to share ideas and interests. We are always open to new ideas about how we can improve the NZOUG so please send through your ideas.
Since the merger of Oracle, Peoplesoft and JDE we have joined forces with the NZ Peoplesoft & JDE users to create a large user group to assist all "Oracle" users in New Zealand to maximise their return on the investment they have made in what is now Oracle Technology.
We look forward to working with all Oracle Users in New Zealand to achieve this goal.
