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.

Every software roll-out is a construction project. From understanding the desired end result to building the basic foundation of the project to testing the various systems and educating the end-user on the use of what you built. Let me share with you what I have learned from several larger roll-outs in E-Business Suites Projects when it comes to turning over the project on time, within budget and providing the end-user with the desired end result. The presentation will also discuss methods to ensure that the end-user adapts to the new software and/or processes put in place to support the software.

  • Understand The Requirements
  • Determine The Solution
  • Measure Success of the Project

All international shipments are regulated, some more than others. A shipper must determine if an item can legally be imported to a country, and what documents (invoices, licenses, certificates, and statements) must travel with the shipment. This webinar will provide ideas on how better manage these decisions by configuring Oracle GTM document determination and regulatory eligibility processes. We will cover several heavily regulated industries from an export and import perspective.

The presentation was provided by David Welch, Manager with Inspirage and Tom Leonard, also with Inspirage.

Join the Oracle Applications and Technology Users Group (OATUG) Analytics, BI and Big Data Special Interest Group (SIG) in a discussion with Wayne Van Sluys of InterRel Consulting in a discussion about the data visualization capabilities in Oracle Analytics solutions. Data Visualization (DV) is the newest member of the Oracle Analytics (BI) family! Whether you are using OBIEE on-premises, are in the cloud with Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC), or on your desktop, DV allows you to rapidly dig into your data and to create visualizations off of many sources. This self-service freedom often presents new challenges. People who are new to DV are often confused by all the possible visualization options or they pick the wrong visualization. We will discuss the various visualization types, showing where and how they are best used to help tell the data story and drive deeper data discovery.

Controls over Oracle EBS User Access and Activity are a challenge for public auditors and internal audit. EBS is hugely complex, and it's a moving target. The goal is to have controls that protect the business assets and financial reports, business and IT processes, and the integrity of EBS itself. Auditors must balance business risks against the cost and operational burden of the controls.

This presentation looks at controls over how EBS users access EBS and what they do within the application. We'll look at how to recognize problems and impact. Sometimes problems can be masked or overlooked. Fortunately, auditors can query EBS itself to answer many questions about what users can potentially and actually do, how business activities are divided among users (SOD), and whether user controls are efficient.
You will gain insight into the following -

• The problems user access and activity controls address.
• How to weigh the problem risks and look for mitigating controls.
• How to look at access control, and how to limit access to what individuals need to fulfill their job roles.
• Access control components that are often overlooked.
• How to determine who changed EBS data, and pick out exception situations for detail review.
• How to evaluate segregation of duties controls intended to prevent fraudulent business activities and damaging EBS configurations.
• How auditors can increase their independence and EBS support staff can reduce their audit support workload.
• Key operational performance indicators for access and activity controls can be the foundation for continuous improvement, reducing risk and costs.
