Navigating the Cloud in the New Decade

Today’s dynamic organizations are utilizing a multitude of systems and applications to run their business successfully. Understanding and using all of the data housed within non-integrated systems can be a considerable challenge. On top of that, migrating various systems to the Cloud can add to the complexity. How can organizations in the new decade efficiently run their organizations while traversing the complex technology landscape and data availability? In this interactive session, Ragu Veeraraghavan, VP of Solutions at SplashBI, will discuss how organizations can effectively utilize the disparate data of the various systems to drive truly positive business results. He will discuss the challenges organizations face. Some of the hurdles include: technical integration, reporting & analytics challenges, loss of historical data, and storage cost. From HR to Finance, everyone is affected. Ragu will arm participants with the necessary knowledge of how to best prepare for the decade to come.

Upgrading from Oracle EBS R12.1.X to R12.2.9, and what does that bring to your table?

Organizations running EBS 12.1 need to look for ways to maximize their ROI on Oracle EBS and maintain a healthy environment. This requires you to stay up to date with the latest features and functionalities, and capitalize on critical improvements that an R12.2 upgrade can offer. In other words, to modernize your EBS system seamlessly and identify areas where you can drive innovation and enhance your current processes.

    OAUG announced at COLLABORATE19 that they are now known as OATUG which means Oracle Applications and Technology Users Group.

    Why the change? It was determined that 40% of all sessions, webinars, and meetups are 40% technology content driven therefore the word technology was added to the name.
