    May 11, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Apex forms are great for low volume data entry but when there are larger data volumes to load, Apex's best solution is a CSV file load and users often spend hours each day entering data and, at times, have to perform mass loads or mass updates. Well, the 1990's called and they'd like their technology back.

    This webinar will show how you can easily extend your Apex forms to an intelligent Excel spreadsheet platform that provides a full-user interface for creating and updating your data.

  • The Value of Test Automation for Oracle Fusion Cloud Apps: Smaller, Faster, Smarter

    May 13, 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM (ET)
    In today’s business environment, success depends on real-time, intelligent decision-making, based on real-time data from all parts of the organization. The move to Oracle Fusion Cloud Apps offers code currency, end-to-end data sharing and visibility, while lowering the total cost of ownership.

    With Fusion Cloud Applications, Oracle now delivers new updates every quarter. Whether you’re an end-customer or a systems integrator, you have to understand what’s new, what features are delivered enabled, and what features you might want to “turn on”. But whether you choose to enable anything or not, our experience tells us that you still need to test.

    Using Dimension SwifTest significantly reduces the time and effort associated with functional testing. It is the easiest way to set up and execute your testing without the need for specialist test engineers or programmers.

    Learning Objectives:
    In this session, you will hear:
    • Real-world examples of how to reduce the time and effort of functional testing.
    • How test managers can view the progress and results of the test, at a project level.
    • How end-to-end processes can be tested by combining scripts.

  • Cloud Migration Projects: How to Measure Employee Adoption, Productivity, and Project ROI

    May 25, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Migrating to a cloud environment has a number of unique challenges, including the need to define new set of metrics to measure employee adoption, productivity and overall success of the project. The metrics of measuring on premise deployments that you were used to look at before are not necessarily the same metrics that should be used to measure your cloud environment success.
    When working in a cloud environment, employees can interact with applications in new ways. An understanding of what to measure, why and how is crucial in presenting a compelling ROI for the business. In this webinar we will explore some of the common metrics used, discuss how they change when moving to a environment and introduce some new metrics for measuring employee adoption, productivity and overall success of a cloud migration project.

    Learning Objectives:
    In this webinar, you will learn several key ways your company can leverage Knoa User Experience Management (UEM) to enable successful migration to Oracle Cloud in support of your transformation goals. We will show you how to increase efficiency of business operations (processes, transactions, workflows, etc.), reducing user and system errors as well as improved turnaround in help desk response and overall User Experience (both Employees and Customers).

  • Career Changes: Taking the Leap

    May 26, 3:00 PM - 3:30 PM (ET)
    Presented by: @Lee Edwards, HCM Business Analyst, Tanana Chiefs Conference

    Changing careers can be a daunting challenge. How do you shift your skills and experiences into a new field? How do you know if the new career is the right fit? And how do you catch up in an industry that is less familiar? For people that have made the leap later in their careers to a job in the technology and applications space, it's important to find resources, support, and the knowledge to adapt quickly.

    In this session, Lee will share his own experience and decisions to move into the technology space, and his challenges and lessons learned along the way. This is a great session for young professionals or people new to their careers, as well as supervisors and leaders that want to provide support to their teams.
