Nominate the OAUG Innovator of the Year

It could be your organization!

Nominate deserving individuals or companies for the OAUG Member of the Year and the OAUG Innovator of the Year awards. The deadline is December 31, 2018.

The OAUG presents several exciting awards at the Meeting of Members during the annual COLLABORATE conference. One of the most coveted is the OAUG Innovator of the Year award, which recognizes a user member organization that has implemented a breakthrough idea using the standard functionality of an Oracle Application.

All members of the OAUG (except board directors and award selection committee members) can nominate candidate organizations. The online nomination form takes less than 10 minutes to complete; enter the nomination details, including the contact information for the individual who will receive the award on behalf of the nominated organization.

If you are planning to nominate your organization or your client organization (if you are an associate member), please make sure you have your nomination justification handy with the answer to the following question: How has breakthrough thinking allowed the nominated user member organization to use the Oracle Application(s) in an innovative and unique manner? You may also upload documents to support your nomination.
Sandeep Reddy Enti accepted the OAUG Innovator of the Year award on behalf of Equinx in 2007.

Equinix was a previous winner of the OAUG Innovator of the Year award for creating a corporate Performance Framework based on Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) solution. The framework extended beyond the traditional finance area to encompass the entire enterprise, where every business unit could track and measure performance.

The most innovative part of the Hyperion Strategic Finance (HSF) implementation was its integration with Aggregate Storage Option (ASO) Reporting Cube. Typically, most customers implement HSF, which is integrated with 'Short term' Hyperion Planning applications and Block Storage Option (BSO) Reporting Cube. Equinix not only integrated with their 'Short term' Hyperion Planning applications but designed and developed an innovative integration with ASO cube instead of conventional BSO cube.

Sandeep Reddy Enti, Oracle nominated guru and author of "Getting Started with Oracle Hyperion Planning 11," accepted the award for Equinix. In 2018, Equinix extended their EPM framework to create financial disclosures required for ASC606 new revenue standard compliance. At COLLABORATE 2018, Equinix presented the solution as part of a session entitled "ASC606: Race Against the Clock: Meeting New Revenue Guidance Using Oracle EPM."

Who is the next OAUG Innovator of the Year? Maybe it is your organization. Submit your nomination at the earliest. The deadline is Monday, December 31, 2018. I'm looking forward to raising a toast to our next OAUG Innovator of the Year!

The OAUG is also inviting nominations for the Member of the Year award by December 31, 2018.
