  • Part 1 of 2: COVID-19 Transitions: Facing the ‘New Normal’ Together

    Jun 16, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    Join us for this two-part series, focused on the response to COVID-19.

    Despite all of our efforts, the crisis is not over. During the last three months, we had to accept the dangers of the epidemic and the severity of the business shutdowns. The initial surprise and shock have been taken in and adjustments have been made. We have entered a transition phase with lots of uncertainty, high hopes, and contradictory information. At the same time, we know that many of the changes we are making now will last long into the future, some of them for the better. Our professional field - information technology and enterprise resource systems - will continue to play a critical role in the success or failure of the needed transformations.

    Session 1: Transitions – Focus on business, financial, and operational challenges:
    Three months into the “new normal” – How have you responded? What have you changed? Operations, finance, supply chain? Which of these changes will you keep into the future? Have you revisited your ERP strategy, stopped some projects, started new ones? How about the use of emerging technologies in your business? A panel with industry representatives will discuss. Audience participation is encouraged, and follow-up small group conversations will be organized.

    And join us for "Session 2: Transitions – Focus on systems, tools, reporting, and management structures" (June 23, 2020 - 9 am PT)

  • Preparing for a Post-Pandemic Sales Tax Audit

    Jun 17, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Presenter: Jeff Stanton, Global Partner Manager, Avalara

    With state revenue from sales tax taking a big cut due to COVID-19 lockdowns and a near shut-down of the economy, many experts are predicting an extra intense sales tax audit season. The question now is “Will you be ready?” Unbeknownst to some, the work from home mandates have triggered physical nexus in states where companies may not have otherwise been liable to collect sales tax. Add to that the sharp turn towards e-commerce, which could have economic nexus impacts, and your post-pandemic tax compliance landscape may look very different than it did pre-pandemic.
    It’s not too late to get your ducks in a row though and Avalara is here to help.
    Learning Objectives:
    Join our sales tax and Oracle expert, Jeff Stanton, to learn:
    • How to figure out where you owe sales tax
    • The most common errors auditors uncover in audits
    • Why cloud-based software is better suited to adapt to compliance needs
    • How Avalara’s Oracle ERP Cloud connector is positioned to help today

  • Part 2 of 2: COVID-19 Transitions: Facing the ‘New Normal’ Together

    Jun 23, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    Session 2: Transitions – Focus on systems, tools, reporting, and management structures
    “Working from Home” is evolving into “Distributed Offices”. How are you addressing the changing requirements for IT infrastructure, security, and personnel management? What tools are you using? How do you adapt to the additional flexibility and skills needed on both the management and staff side?
    Many people believe that the ‘new normal’ will continue to present surprises. It will demand quick responses to business, regulatory, and taxation changes. The old world of monolithic systems and costly multi-year upgrade projects will not be appropriate any longer. What are your solutions? How does this impact your teams’ skill sets and training, your vendor relationships, and your strategy? Did you start working towards a flexible, composable architecture with a focus on system integrations versus replacements? Can we transform our departments into agile operations?

    Our panel of business leaders and consulting organizations from different industries and geographic regions will discuss these questions and our professional opportunities.

  • Become an Influencer for the Re-imagined Oracle Help Center

    Aug 19, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)
    Help design the Oracle Help Center!

    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 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. Oracle Help Center is the hub for Oracle’s documentation, APIs, tutorials and other technical resources.

    Participation is easy! 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.

    Presented by The Oracle Help Center Design Team
