New Look, New Functionality - The New ODTUG.com

Welcome to the new ODTUG website! There are a multitude of changes, some visual and some functional.       

New Look and Logo - The first thing you will notice is the new ODTUG logo that puts the emphasis on the “U” for  YOU,  the USER. Our new logo reflects ODTUG’s commitment to helping our members become leaders in their organizations through education, timely access to the latest information, communication, and networking within the community. The new ODTUG.COM is one vehicle for achieving this goal. It is robust, dynamic, intuitive, and easy to navigate. 

New Functionality  - ODTUG is also proud to show off our new site’s functionality. The technical database has been refurbished and is easily searchable. You can even rate and make comments on presentations, white papers, and articles. ODTUG has built communities to serve as portals to all things related to your area of expertise, including blogs, events, and presentations.
