  • Track Employee COVID Vaccinations in Oracle EBS

    Mar 2, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    If your organization needs to track employee COVID vaccinations, please attend our webinar on how to do this within Oracle EBS.

    In this session, we will demonstrate two options for recording and reporting on employee COVID vaccinations. The first option will use the Oracle HR SIT functionality and the second option will use a set of COVID tables to track even more detailed information. With both solutions, we'll also highlight how this data can be loaded en masse and easily reported on from Excel.

    Learning Objectives:
    1) Learn options for tracking COVID vaccinations in Oracle EBS
    2) Learn how large quantities of data can be quickly loaded and reported on from Excel
    3) Understand how to satisfy existing and changing COVID reporting requirements

    Educational Tracks:
    #Analytics/BI, #E-BusinessSuite, & #PeopleSoft

  • E-Business Suite & Fusion Cloud Targeted Setup Loading and Migration

    Mar 3, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    Flexibility to target and load specific setup is key in any E-Business Suite or Fusion Cloud implementation, roll out, release cycle, upgrade / patch cycle, etc. ConfigSnapshot puts this flexibility in your hands in a matter of minutes.

    ConfigSnapshot is a unique tool developed over the past 20 years to provide comprehensive yet flexible and agile control around the E-Business Suite and Fusion Cloud applications. Used in all stages of the application lifecycles, it quickly finds and tracks change across patch levels, environments / pods, business entities and time. Using ConfigSnapshot you have clear concise visibility of change, putting you in control of it. You can then be more proactive, drive and automate changes across environments / pods, business entities, updates etc. using ConfigSnapshot.

    Hundreds of organisations globally use ConfigSnapshot today to support a wide range of requirements including generation of documentation (BR100s / MC050 etc), identification of EBS customisations, upgrade / patch impact analysis, comparisons across environment, entities, versions and time, automation of setup creation and migration (including migrations from EBS to Cloud), change tracking and user access / segregation of duties reporting etc.

    During this session we will outline the various areas of the ConfigSnapshot functionality used to manage, control, and automate change in the E-Business Suite and Cloud Applications. We will then focus on the setup loading / migration functionality and provide a product demonstration. The session should be of interest to all users of the E-Business Suite and Cloud Applications.

    Learning Objectives:
    - How to manage and control EBS and Cloud configuration settings
    - How to load / migrate targeted records
    - Check consistency of settings across environments, entities, versions / patch levels and time

  • Oracle R12.2 Upgrade and the Impacts on Legacy Reporting and Discoverer

    Mar 24, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Are you worried about how Oracle upgrades will affect your legacy reporting? Are you dreading the migration from a legacy reporting tool like Oracle Discoverer or OBIEE? Many users currently running Oracle Discoverer or OBIEE express concerns when it comes to finding a path forward now that these legacy tools have reached their end of life and are no longer being supported by Oracle. These concerns are well-founded as those who choose to stay on board until the sustaining period ends will be left without critical support for existing Oracle and third-party products and necessary updates. While users who opt to upgrade to R12.2 will find that the advancements included in this upgrade, unfortunately, haven’t reached Oracle’s native reporting tools.

    No matter what EBS version you are running, you can empower your team with real-time reporting that integrates directly with EBS and offers a simple two-step process for converting your existing Discoverer reports.

    Learning Objectives:
    In this webinar, we will explore:
    - Oracle upgrades and impact on legacy reporting such as Discoverer and OBIEE
    - Deeper dive into possible Discoverer replacement options providing real-time reporting
    - Empower finance teams to easily build and drill into live transactional data
    - Improved data accuracy and eliminating data dumping, allowing more time for analysis
    - Fast time to value with a robust library of pre-built content

  • How to Automate Currency Rates in Oracle ERP Cloud and EBS

    Mar 26, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Oracle Fusion ERP Cloud and E-Business Suite have great multi-currency features, but these are dependent upon your ability to populate up-to-date and authentic FX rates in the application.

    We'll start with a summary of the multi-currency functionality available, then cover where you should source your rates; who are the top providers, are market rates sufficient or do you need official central bank rates to meet statutory requirements in certain jurisdictions?

    Finally, we'll look at the options to get rates into the application, manual or automated. FXLoader covers all the functionality you will ever need for automating this process, and can be configured and working on a 30-minute call. We will demo the core features and explain when you would use them. We'll also look at how FXLoader audits and future-proofs the process.

    Learning objectives:
    * Become familiar with the multi-currency features of Oracle ERP Cloud and E-Business Suite
    * Understand where most companies source their rates and the pros and cons of different options
    * Learn when you need central bank rates for statutory purposes
    * Understand the options for populating rates
    * An appreciation of how FXLoader can be set up and the advantages of such a pre-built, fully automated approach

  • Supercharge OBIEE: Leave Slow ETL Processes in the Dust

    Mar 30, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    There’s no doubt that OBIEE provides great value to businesses, whether for enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and/or human capital management (HCM) applications. What you won’t get is a high-performance, quick-to-implement, low-maintenance analytics solution that combines data from multiple application sources. With Incorta analytics, OBIEE customers have a better, more modern option for analyzing and understanding their data—with no data modeling or complex transformations required.

    Learning Objectives:
    - Hear how Broadcom, an Incorta customer went from months to hours to upgrade their OBIEE system.
    - Learn about Incorta’s groundbreaking ability to sift through seemingly endless datasets in subseconds
    - See self-service reporting and analytics in action
    - Learn how with Incorta, you’ll make better decisions faster with the availability of source-level data granularity, combined with all relevant history; plus, cross-functional and role-based analytics
    - See how top-line to transaction data access works: drill from top-line analysis down to transactions without any data inaccuracies because pre-aggregations and summarizations are no longer necessary
