Recording Date: Friday, March 27, 2020, 12:00 pm ET
Duration: 1 hour
This session will delve into the history, structure, and fundamentals of blockchain technologies, types of blockchains, and their current applications in the market. How blockchain technology can act as a blueprint for a new economy, whether it is in fintech, healthcare, supply chain, real estate or energy swim lanes. How do blockchains swim and live in the new ecosystems with permissioned or permission less blockchains, embracing a new process flow? In this presentation, we explore the organization, the peers, the network, the smart contracts, the applications invoking smart contracts, and finally how transactions flow into the network. With a metaphor of the sea, we will delve into theoretical constructs and then move into the nuts and bolts of designing a system with Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service.
Presented by the NEOATUG.

Our company moved our E-Business Suite and supporting applications from on-premise to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) in 2018. Join us as we discuss the key decision points that drove our move to the cloud. We will also highlight the timeline and resourcing that were required to successfully complete this project. We will also discuss the lessons learned since the migration in terms of performance and maintenance. Finally, we will showcase the business benefits we have realized and where we envision our future roadmap now that we are on a modern infrastructure platform.

During this presentation will show you how to take a requisition to a Bid and then to a PO. The main emphasis will be on the Bid Piece. First, we share with you how to create a requisition by shopping from "My Stores" and submitting for approval. Once it is approved, we will go to the Buyer Work Center and create a new solicitation with the outcome of Standard Purchase Order using templates, updating variable values, and them submit for approval. After approval we will Publish Bid, Manage Abstracts and Forms, and then Publish Abstracts. We will invite multiple Suppliers to this Bid and show you how a Supplier utilizes Sourcing Supplier to bid on the new solicitation. Once the supplier submits a bid, we will mix things up a little and show you how the Buyer can create an amendment. Now that we’ve created an amendment the Supplier will need to acknowledge the amendment, and reply using the Sourcing Module. After the Supplier acknowledges the amendment we will close and award the solicitation. Finally, we will share with you how we turn it into a Purchase Order.

Take the risk and unknown out of upgrading the E-Business Suite through the use of ConfigSnapshot. ConfigSnapshot covers all versions of the E-Business Suite from 11.0.3 to current (12.2.9) and will show what changes have or will be made on your EBS environments as a result of upgrading or patching. It can also be used to automatically and consistently apply configuration updates on each upgrade iteration and then ultimately on the production upgrade. Where your production downtime window is short this removes the risk and potential delay.

EBS reporting is always a challenge. You either don't have the data you need, or even more frustrating, you do have the data you need, but you cannot structure it in the way it is required to be presented.

Reporting in EBS is also fraught with challenges created by the structural framework of the enterprise - Ledgers, Operating Units, Inventory Orgs and so on. How do you address reporting needs and data requirements to transcend these boundaries and structural elements?

Join us in discovering how these boundaries and structural elements can be circumvented or dissolved, and how choosing the right criteria or parameters (and tool/product) can help get the data you need, and deliver it in a comfortable and familiar format known as the accountant's best friend - Excel.

Duration: 1 hour
Vendor prices can fluctuate, sometimes significantly over time, resulting in unintended higher costs. A periodic price analysis should be performed to determine there are no overcharges or no discrepancies depending on the operating unit and inventory delivery site. A sudden price change may also indicate an expired contract or a significant, unnoticed increase. This session will review key Oracle reports to leverage your purchasing across the business, and to identify inventory item cost savings opportunities.
