ATLANTA – Jan. 14, 2014
The Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), the world's largest user knowledgebase for Oracle Applications users, announces Alyssa Johnson as its 2014 president.
Johnson has been an active member of the OAUG since 2003 and has served as a member of the organization's board of directors since 2011. In addition to performing her board responsibilities during that time, she served on the OAUG's Governance, Education and Marketing committees and as the board liaison to the OAUG Fusion Council. In 2012, Johnson was elected to the OAUG Executive Committee as the board secretary, and as such served as the chair of the Governance Committee.
In 2013, Johnson was elected by the board to serve as president-elect. As a result, she is the first OAUG president to take part in a formal succession planning program, which aims to ensure stability, continuity and a smooth transition of the organization's leadership.
"As the president of the OAUG in 2014, I am focused on innovation, involvement and influence as a way to meet, anticipate and stay ahead of the things our members need," said Johnson. "The OAUG will continue to maintain a strong focus on our core member benefits of education, networking and advocacy to Oracle but also acknowledge and embrace the fact that members, their environments and the way in which they can participate or consume benefits change and continue to evolve."
Johnson is practice director at Alpharetta, Ga.-based Rolta Americas, which provides her the opportunity to interface with multiple clients in diverse business areas, assisting them with strategic IT planning and system design.
