Prep now for Collaborate 2014

Collaborate 2014: SearchOracle will be on-site to cover the news, trends and technologies that are defining Oracle user challenges in 2014.

For those heading to Collaborate 14 -- and for those who aren't -- it's wise to bookmark SearchOracle and the site's conference coverage of the event.

Collaborate 14: Technology and Applications Forum for the Oracle Community takes place April 7-11 and is hosted by the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) and Quest International Users Group (Quest). SearchOracle will be on-site to cover the news, trends and technologies that are defining Oracle user challenges in 2014, from enterprise applications in the cloud to managing big data.

To bring Collaborate 14 attendees under one roof to discuss the issues, SearchOracle editors will also host a "tweet jam" with cloud, big data and mobility as our key themes. The Oracle user groups will have experts on hand, and we'd like your participation during our tweet jam event.

The where and when:

Date: Thursday, March 27, 2014
2:30 p.m. ET / 11:30 a.m. PT
: @SearchOracle (editors and moderator)
Michelle Malcher, IOUG, @malcherm, Alyssa Johnson, OAUG, @alyssaEBS, and Wendy Plante, Quest, @wendyplante77
Hashtag: Use and follow #C14LV

Some guidelines for the tweet jam:

Whether you're new to Twitter or a social media pro, here are some helpful suggestions to keep in mind while joining us for this tweet jam:

Introduce yourself. Before joining the conversation, let us know who you are. Include your name, organization and job title in your first #C14LV tweet.

Tell us what is what. SearchOracle editors will ask a series of questions to followers between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. EST. Preface your answers with A1 (for Answer 1), A2, A3 and so on, and include "#C14LV". That way, we can answer any questions or discuss ideas without getting confused.

Stay within character limits. Remember that Twitter permits 140 characters per tweet. If you've got a lot to say, tweet multiple responses to each question.

Engage with the community. This is an opportunity to network and connect with Twitter users on the same wavelength. Retweet responses you agree with, and reply to those you don't.

Connect with our experts. Malcher, Johnson and Plante join us as discussion leaders and Oracle experts; don't hesitate to ask them follow-up questions directly.

Please direct questions, RSVPs or other concerns to associate managing editor Joe Hebert. Email him at, and follow him on Twitter: @jhbrt_TT.
