Oracle has announced the Oracle Collaboration Suite Customer Advisory Board (CAB), created to develop partnerships with Oracle customers that strengthen strategic product planning for long-term performance and growth. Oracle Collaboration Suite CAB members have joined from a number of industries, including education, financial services, government, healthcare, and technology. Sixteen companies are currently CAB members and include BAE SYSTEMS Naval Ships, Bristol-Myers Squibb, The EBS Group, Pemco Aviation Group, Inc., RGIS Inventory Specialists, and University of Manchester, among others. The CAB is intended to allow Oracle customers to share real-world challenges they face in leveraging collaboration technology to grow and drive their businesses. The program provides a forum in which members can share strategies, discuss deployment successes and unveil best practices. Customers also work directly with Oracle developers to create product enhancements that meet their business requirements, in addition to receiving special technical training opportunities.
