 Please join us for the annual OWAM Users Group Conference, FullCircle 2014, on the picturesque San Francisco Bay at the Oracle Headquarters Campus in Redwood Shores on March 5-6, 2014.  In an effort to help clients optimize their travel dollar, this event will be held the same week as the 2014 Multi-Product Customer Advisory Board (CAB) hosted by The Oracle Utilities Global Business Unit; more information below.

FullCircle 2014 will once again be your opportunity for Oracle work & asset management collaboration with fellow WAM colleagues and expert resources in the New Year!  This “for users, by users” grassroots user community event continues to offer a very low attendee registration fee of only $385 per person…which includes all sessions, conference materials, meals, evening events, and shuttle transportation between the event hotel and Oracle campus.  Thank you to Oracle for graciously providing access to their onsite convention center & logistic support services to further our cause.

As a for-users, by-users coordinated event, a preliminary 2014 Conference Schedule is now available, CLICK HERE. Thank you to all those that have volunteered to make a presentation and share your wealth of WAM knowledge with the FullCircle community.  Attendees are also encouraged to visit for regular updates as the agenda will continue to evolve as we get closer to the event. You will receive a detailed conference program during Registration on Tuesday evening, March 4.

Yes...we have an app for that!  This year's conference will feature a mobile app that allows you to access the conference schedule, speaker & partner information, and interact with fellow attendees. More information regarding the Android and iPhone downloads is forthcoming.  At the conference, you'll be able to scan a QR code to easily retreive the Event joy application for free.    

Doc Palmer, PE, MBA, CMRP
Author of McGraw-Hill’s Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook

"Leaping Forward Using Deming Principles in Asset Management"

Back by popular demand, Doc Palmer has over three decades of industrial experience as a practitioner primarily within the maintenance department of the Jacksonville Electric Authority, a major United States electric utility.  From 1990 through 1994, Palmer was responsible for overhauling the existing maintenance planning organization. The resulting success played a role in expanding planning to all crafts and stations owned and operated by the utility.  Publisher McGraw-Hill subsequently sought out Palmer to author the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook published in 1999 and now in its third edition. Currently Palmer provides guidance, mentoring, and training for companies internationally for maintenance planning success.

To enhance the educational value and information exchange at FullCircle 2014, we encourage participation by solution partners that are actively working with the user community to further clients' WAM initiatives. If your organization is collaborating with an intriguing industry vendor and you think they have a compelling story to share with the WAM community, send them our way!  We have a variety of event sponsorship levels available; please contact us at

Following the format used last year, the Oracle Utilities Multi-Product Customer Advisory Board (CAB) scheduled for March 3-4, 2014, will be open to all customers for all Oracle Utilities products, and is a separate event from FullCircle.  The CAB meeting will be used to present Product Roadmaps and to solicit feedback from customers.  Please note that this FullCircle announcement is not an invitation to the CAB.  Invitation and registration information for the CAB is forthcoming under separate cover from your Oracle representative . 
There is no cost to attend the CAB; registration will be handled separately (travel and other costs are the responsibility of each attendee). However, there is a low registration fee to attend the self-funded FullCircle OWAM event that relies solely on attendee registration fees and industry partner sponsorships each year.  For CAB questions, please contact

If you're interested in participating in the development of future events, or want to join in on one of our regularly scheduled conference planning calls, drop us a note at  And don't hesitate to contact any one of the steering committee members directly too!
