About Us

The Southern California User Group (SCUG) is a non-profit regional user group (RUG) which facilitates communication and networking among Oracle, their customers, and Business Partners in Southern California. Our members are users of Oracle's J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne & World software, whose companies are located in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside and / or San Diego counties. 

SCUG is independent from Oracle, however we are fortunate to have a strong affiliation with them through our regional point-of-contact. Our group enjoys the support and participation of many of the regional Oracle representatives and Client Managers, along with strong participation and content offering from the local Business Partner community supporting Oracle products and services.

We are also affiliated with Quest . Quest is the International User Group for PeopleSoft, JDE and Oracle customers, among others. They sponsor the annual Collaborate user conference together with OAUG / IOUG and the rest of the Oracle international user groups. Quest offers us an online user community along with deeper dive education oriented conferences INFOCUS and RECONNECT.

Our group sponsors (4) regular 1-day meetings per year for our paid members. At each of the (4) regular meetings, we provide an Oracle Update,  a Quest report and at least 6-9 education breakout sessions specific to the JD Edwards software product lines. We also feature roundtable discussion groups as a way for you to meet with fellow customers and share best practices or work-place challenges, where often you can find solutions to bring back to your company.
