  • Cloud Transformation – Changing Dynamics Along the Cloud Maturity Model

    Aug 23, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    The move to the Cloud is filled with exuberance and challenges as your organization progresses along the Cloud Maturity Model. The wave of digital transformation brings disruptive changes to organizations, but it’s also an opportunity to evaluate processes and incorporate efficiency. True transformation succeeds when people themselves transform and adapt to change. This session will reveal what one of the largest fast-food icons had to consider when they started their journey and their ensuing cloud maturation. Every role in the organization, from technologists to leaders, were required to embrace change for them to become “value creators.” What does your organization need to consider as it progresses along this maturity model? Has your organization considered the roles required as you go from data center transformation to application stabilization, to supporting hybrid deployments before you modernize your applications?

    Come join Pramod Alluri, Global Cloud Transformation Leader, for this insightful session as he guides you through the stages of transformation and provides key insights that your organization needs to contemplate across the Cloud Maturity Model, each step along the way!

    Learning Objectives:
    • Understand the Cloud Maturity Model and Adoption Framework
    • Discover use cases for the Cloud Maturity Model
    • Explore available cloud deployment options

    Educational Track:
    Cloud Migration

  • Fusion (SaaS) Cloud Applications: Automated and Flexible Setup Loading, Reporting and Compares

    Sep 21, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    Using the right tools, you will deliver the right results each time and save time, cost and risk in the process. Working with complex enterprise systems such as the Fusion (SaaS) Cloud Applications requires a huge amount of configuration work to be performed and maintained over multiple environments (Dev / Test / UAT / Production). Basic implementation tools are provided but do not consider practical usage, lack clarity of reporting or consistency checking and require numerous loading mechanisms / user interfaces.

    Join us for this presentation where we will take you through just how easy it can be, with the right tools, to work with the Cloud configuration settings and extract, transform, load, compare them across environments, entities, time and even the quarterly patch updates.

    We will touch on the automated generation of MC050s, comparing settings across multiple Cloud environments, seeing the impacts of quarterly patch updates, loading targeted settings across environments, tracking who / what is making changes and user access / segregation of duties reporting etc. The session should be of interest to anyone working with the Oracle Fusion (SaaS) Cloud Applications.

    Learning Objectives:
    1. How to easily check the consistency of settings across multiple Cloud environments
    2. How to load / migrate only the specific records you need
    3. How to clearly see where quarterly patch updates have added or impacted Cloud settings

  • Empower Your People with Financial Insights from Oracle ERPs

    Sep 22, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    It is critical for your team to have better awareness and a stronger understanding of all activities that impact the bottom line. Lacking the ability to identify and examine the underlying root causes behind the issues in financial reports (e.g., unpredictable revenue or unstable supplier relationships), your finance team may need to be able to research and autonomously resolve the issues at hand.

    Creating the actionable insights your business needs is often a complex process that falls upon IT. Custom reports or dashboards are requested by business leaders, and eventually delivered by teams of data analysts from the IT team or a partner. This process can often take weeks, if not months, and in many cases, the report or dashboard is limited to a single use case and applicable only to a single business unit or user – perhaps only the requester.

    Join this webinar to discover how using Wands for Oracle in conjunction with Angles for Oracle can enhance your organization’s financial and operational reporting needs by:
    -Providing easy, self-service reporting for Oracle EBS in Excel or in the BI tool of your choice.
    -Accelerating daily reporting activities with easy access to EBS data in Excel.
    -Empowering your financial teams to access deep enterprise application, business, and functional insights.
    -Viewing, identifying, and analyzing processes across the entire value chain.

    Learning Objectives:
    1.) Accelerate daily reporting activities with easy access to EBS data in Excel.
    2.) Empower your financial teams to access deep enterprise application, business, and functional insights.
    3.) View, identify, and analyze processes across the entire value chain.

  • How Managing Oracle Cloud Projects Differs from On-Premise: Here’s What You Need to Know

    Sep 29, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (ET)
    Abstract:
    For many Oracle practitioners who are accustomed to delivering Oracle EBS, CX, VCP, JDE, Peoplesoft, or Agile PLM, it may seem reasonable that implementing Oracle Cloud projects would be no different. However, key differences should be considered to avoid roadblocks such as an ever-expanding project scope or missing the mark on leveraging the power of Oracle Cloud applications altogether.

    Join us to discuss the critical differences between Oracle Cloud projects and on-premise. We’ll cover the steps to set expectations, organize, and manage Oracle Cloud differently to help ensure success utilizing modern applications.

    Learning Objectives:
    1) Leverage the power of Project Management for the Oracle Cloud implementation
    2) Understand the differences between Project management to support a Cloud implementation
    3) Visualization without requirements for better Cloud adoption
