The OAUG Collaborate conference kicks off in Las Vegas on Sunday April 10th. This conference is organized by Oracle user groups and is packed with content from customers, partners and Oracle have some sessions too. If you follow this blog you will know I am a big fan of the conference, I learn a lot from our customers and try to give back as much as I can by sharing information and answering questions. The twitter conversations are already starting, follow #C16LV now and certainly during conference week to see what people are talking about.

FAHRCS (pronounced farks) is the de facto acronym for the officially titled Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud Service. Is Stands for Fusion Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud Service, which is quite difficult to say. I have got pretty good at saying F.A.H.R.C.S quickly, but I think “farks” is probably the easiest.
If you are wondering what FAHRCS actually is, you can follow @FAHRCS on twitter, or check out https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/accounting-hub-reporting-cloud for official documentation.
I’ll be presenting about it at the Higher Education User Group Conference, Alliance16 in March and again at OAUG Collaborate16 in April. So I hope to see you there and help you learn more about FAHRCS.
