  • Top 7 Tasks You Didn’t Know You Could Automate in Oracle EBS

    Jan 19, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    "If you perform a task more than once, it should be automated." – Renowned Computer Scientist, Cheese Enthusiast, and Frequent Donor to NPR Pledge Drive. Virasone

    Automation is a key technology necessary for improving quality of service, productivity, and efficient use of human resources. Manufacturing and many other industries have been using robots for repetitive tasks for decades. As DBAs for Oracle EBS and Oracle Database, we have software bots for the same purpose.

    Learning Objective:
    * Join this webinar to learn the various areas of databases and applications where software bot automation can make a measurable difference.
    * We’ll discuss seven in particular that have been the most valuable in reducing the daily workload of our own DBAs and customers.

    Presenter: Vie Daranouvong
    Vie has more than 27 years of experience in the IT industry, starting with Software Development, transitioning to Oracle Database Administration, and settling as an Oracle EBS Database Administrator. He has extensive background in production support with focus on Oracle applications and databases. His specialties include software development, installation, maintenance, migration, upgrades, patching, cloning, modeling/architecture, assessments, capacity planning, backup and recovery, performance tuning, operational efficiency, and automation.

  • Oracle E-Business Suite on Azure Platform: Migration to Management

    Jan 20, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    Azure is one of the two non-Oracle public clouds recognized by Oracle to run Oracle workloads. The webinar will outline the steps to estimate the E-Business Suite (EBS) workload capacity requirements and size of the Azure platform. Understand the high availability architecture options without using third party cluster solutions. Use cloud-native technologies such as Azure Backups and Azure Site Recovery for business continuity instead of traditional on-premises tools. Last but not least, know the license impact when migrating workloads to Azure.

    Learning Objectives:
    - Understand the public cloud options available to run Oracle EBS workloads
    - Design Oracle EBS on Azure with business continuity and highly available architectures
    - Estimate capacity requirements to size the environment on Azure
    - Understand license impact, both database and application

  • Developing a Comprehensive Security Strategy for Oracle E-Business Suite

    Jan 21, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    Oracle E-Business Suite ties into every aspect of your IT infrastructure and is “the keys to the kingdom” containing all your financial, banking, HR, and customer payment methods. Managing this critical infrastructure requires more than configuring your firewall and applying hundreds of critical security patches Oracle releases each quarter. A breach can result in direct financial losses caused by the inability to manufacture or ship. And the collateral legal damage of HR data sold by hackers can cripple an organization.

    This session will review the four pillars you should consider implementing as a minimum-security strategy and will delve into the tools and technologies that can help mitigate the potential security risks in your ERP ecosystem.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Outline each of the four pillars of an ERP security strategy
    • Define an execution strategy for each security area
    • Identify the tools and techniques to consider for each pillar

    Educational Track:
    * #E-BusinessSuite  * EBS Upgrades  * EBS Cloud Migration

    Presenter:
    @Mike Rulf, Chief Technology Officer – Americas at Syntax
    Mike has over 25 years of experience with Oracle technologies including E-Business Suite, Oracle Cloud, and information security systems. ​​

  • Become an Oracle Influencer

    Jan 28, 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM (ET)
    Do you want to influence future changes of Oracle’s help documentation site? The Oracle Help Center Design Team is interested in getting feedback from real users like yourself to learn how updates to our technical help center might improve certain tasks and workflows. Your unique opinions will help us measure how ‘usable’ or ‘intuitive’ our designs are. This type of input is vital because it will result in updates to future versions of the Oracle Help Center (docs.oracle.com). Oracle Help Center is the hub for Oracle’s documentation, APIs, tutorials and other technical resources.

    Please join our upcoming 30-minute session! Our team will show you a series of screens and prototypes and ask you polling questions about your first-impressions, how you think you might interact with the pages, and what your expectations are based on what you see.

    Attendees have the opportunity to shape the Oracle Help Center into a version that best serves them. Feedback/perspective directly results in design updates to future versions of the Oracle Help Center (docs.oracle.com).

    This will be an interactive session!

    Hosted by:
    Sara Perez-Wells, Oracle, UX Researcher
    Susan Snipes, Oracle, Sr. Manager, UX Design ​

  • Prepare Your Financial Reporting for a Smooth Transition to Oracle ERP Cloud

    Feb 18, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    As you plan your move to Oracle ERP Cloud, you may well be confused by a number of native reporting tools available and surprised that no one tool offers finance teams exactly what you need. If you don’t plan carefully, you could find yourself stuck with inflexible native reports, painful drill downs, manually intensive processes, and reliant on IT. This means longer reporting cycles, lower productivity, and not enough time to focus on critical analysis.

    So, if you are thinking about, or planning, your move to Oracle ERP cloud, join us and we’ll walk you through your options, show you how you can solve the reporting challenges you face today while futureproofing your technology investment, and help you set yourself up for future reporting success.

    During this webinar, we’ll introduce you to purpose-built financial reporting software that works with Oracle EBS and Oracle ERP Cloud, and you’ll discover a smooth path to fast, flexible, Excel-based reporting for Oracle ERP Cloud.

    Learning Objectives:
    Attendees will learn about:
    · Oracle ERP Cloud native reporting options and why none of these offer finance teams exactly what they need
    · How to ease your migration to Oracle ERP Cloud by porting existing reports, simplifying and de-risking data validation, and providing continuity for your business processes
    · How to satisfy your reporting needs in the Cloud by connecting Oracle ERP Cloud to Excel in near real time, putting finance teams in control of reporting, and giving you deeper analysis capabilities to answer questions quickly
