About us...

ORAWORLD Magazine is a product of EOUC, the EMEA Oracle Usergroup Community.  With this medium, more than 20 user groups take the opportunity of sharing information about the Oracle cosmos worldwide. Before launching its eMagazine project, EOUC published a monthly newsletter containing various news, dates of events, event reviews etc.

The newsletter functioned as a platform for all user group members of EOUC to publish their content in a central medium. With OraWorld Magazine, this platform is enhancing even further.
