ATLANTA – Sept 25, 2018 - The Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), an independent, global, member-led organization that maximizes users’ investment in Oracle and partner solutions, today announced Ragan Cohn, CAE, as its new executive director.

Change is the only constant in the tech sector, though, and so I look forward to partnering with our board and the staff as we continue to evolve to meet the needs of Oracle customers as product offerings diversify and options grow increasingly complex.”
