DOAG Deutsche ORACLE-Anwendergruppe e.V.


The development of databases and their design is a real science that requires a continuing process of education. The Development Community offers a comprehensive platform for information and exchange concerning the software development with Oracle tools (such as JDeveloper, Forms, TopLink) and Oracle platforms (such as Fusion Middleware, Database). In the SIG Development/Tools, the community deals with all topics revolving around databases in each and every aspect, while the SIG Java answers Java-specific questions. The SIG Spatial completes the offer with their focus on geo-information (GIS).

Instead of just concentrating on their own projects, it has become necessary for the developers, architects and project coordinators of today to think outside the box and see the big picture of the business processes. Therefore the community additionally has now extended their fields of interests beyond the priority of development and has also included process related topics. Whether it's Business Process Management (BMP), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Intelligence (BI) or Data Warehouse (DWH) - the Community offers a broad platform of exchange concerning techniques, application scenarios and current developments regarding the topic of business process management. The community organizes several specialized events on a regular basis. The DOAG BI is run as an independent conference next to the SIG BPM.

The most popular computer language in the world has proven to be a big attraction for the Development Community, too: Due to the Java community, the Development Community has been growing considerably since 2010 and has turned out to be one of the biggest communities in the association. The DOAG set out to build on this positive development to intensify the dialogue between the various complementary fields of the community.

The DOAG is a member of the Java User Groups e.V. (iJUG), which they founded together with nine Java user groups from Germany after Oracle had taken over Sun.
