  • FCCS to ARCS: Compliance Reconciliation at Warp Speed

    May 24, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    Do you have Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud (FCCS)?... Then you’ve already done half the work of designing and building Account Reconciliation Cloud Service (ARCS)! Let’s discuss how to leverage FCCS dimensions and data integration to design, build, implement, validate, and test Reconciliation Compliance faster and more efficiently than starting from scratch. This enables automating reconciliation tasks, supports risk-based cycles, and gains real-time visibility into reconciliation performance. Use Smart View and Excel to build reference tables for the initial build and ongoing maintenance. Convert dimensions into attributes. Convert mapping records between applications.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Gain a better understanding of Account Reconciliation
    • Learn how to leverage FCCS dimensions and data integration to design, build, implement, validate, and test Reconciliation Compliance
    • Use Smart View and Excel to build reference tables for the initial build and ongoing maintenance

  • Top 5 Things to Consider Before Moving to Oracle ERP Cloud

    May 26, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (ET)
    With the renewed urgency we’ve seen building in the last few months around migrating ERP data to Cloud, this topic is understandably one that’s top of mind for many organisations. Unfortunately, a lot of Oracle EBS users are still in the dark about the impact this data migration may have on their reporting, access to current data, and ability to view their legacy data. Understanding these aspects prior to your migration can set your team up for success and ensure as little disruption to monthly reporting as possible.

    Join us for this educational Webinar investigating the top five questions you’ll want to have answers to before starting your Cloud migration. Join John Brooks, Director of Solutions Engineering, and David Rincon, Senior Solutions Engineer, for this session to hear answers to these questions:

    1.) How many of your processes rely on data dumps into spreadsheets? Will you be able to access your cloud data in the format you need?

    2.) Are the “end user tools” in the cloud solution really for end users, or for IT and developers?

    3.) Will your cloud vendor let you connect any additional tools you require?

    4.) How will you reconcile that your data has successfully moved to the cloud?

    5.) It’s highly likely that only data for the current year and open balances will be migrated to the cloud, how will you access your legacy data for the next seven years?         

    Learning Objective:
    Provide insight into some key considerations when preparing to migrate to ERP Cloud

  • My Hardware is Being Retired, But I Still Want to Run My Oracle Applications; What Now?

    Jun 1, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    Replacing legacy hardware with cloud-based solutions can be easy but replacing mission-critical applications on that aging hardware is not. Application owners might struggle to find a solution to the incompatibility of modern cloud infrastructure and their legacy applications.

    Learn how to extend the useful life of your legacy application by migrating it to the cloud and running it on modern hardware. Through two case studies, we’ll walk step by step through the considerations for migrating Oracle databases associated with legacy applications to the cloud. You’ll learn the steps necessary to migrate databases in two different scenarios including running in legacy hardware emulation as well as natively on x86 in the cloud.

    If you’re looking for solutions to preserve your investment in Oracle applications while migrating to modern hardware, you’re not going to want to miss this session!

    Learning Objectives:
    1.) Understand available options for preserving legacy oracle applications
    2.) Plan a legacy application migration to the cloud with Charon
    3.) Plan for Oracle database migration to either x86 or running natively on legacy OS
