The Best of COLLABORATE 17 – OAUG Forum is a collection of some of the top conference presentations, determined largely by feedback obtained from the surveys completed by session attendees. Team leaders from the OAUG Education Committee review the overall ratings per session along with the attendance numbers to identify the highest-rated and highest-attended conference sessions. The selected sessions represent and address some of the most critical challenges our users community is facing. The content is on point, and it's on the calendar.
