Interested in joining a HEUG Advisory Group? Wondering what they do?
Advisory Group volunteers work to gather and disseminate information about product features, problems and improvement opportunities through the AA listserv/forum, Product Enhancement Tracker, polls and surveys, or direct communication with other users. They funnel feedback from the community to Oracle product strategists and developers. They also administer and co-ordinate their Alliance Conference Tracks to bring you the best, most relevant presentations possible each year.
Volunteers commit to participation in monthly conference calls, as well as a two-day, in-person Summit prior to each annual Alliance Conference. They may work on beta-testing, provide feedback on new and proposed functionality, and assist in writing white papers on issues of importance to the whole community.
What’s in it for you?
You’ll get to work with a great bunch of people from a variety of institutions across the globe. You’ll get to share your expertise with the broader community, and with Oracle, shaping the direction of product development. You’ll gain insight into the larger strategic thinking that goes into product development, and gain a greater appreciation for the value of cross-functional working teams. You’ll learn … a lot! And you’ll feel good knowing your efforts are making things better for administrators and, ultimately, for students of institutions around the world.
