Recording Date: September 23, 2020 at 12:00 pm ET
Duration: 60 minutes

Abstract:
Mission-critical applications running on legacy hardware, such as SPARC, Alpha, VAX, or PA-RISC, are holding IT departments back with their increasing risk of failure, increasing costs, a continual vulnerability to security, and diminishing support. Overall, while the applications are vital, the hardware is creating a technology drag on your organization and preventing you from digital transformation and embracing new technologies.

In this webinar, you’ll learn the different strategies for migrating legacy apps away from aging hardware to a private or public cloud (or both). Additionally, you’ll hear from experts about how a shift of legacy applications to the cloud fits into your overall digital transformation and business continuity strategy, ultimately moving you away from data centers.

Attendees will walk away with:
• An understanding of the growing risk of legacy hardware and the drain it has on your IT infrastructure. Plus, the different strategies for migrating those apps away from hardware.
• How migrating legacy apps to the cloud can gain the benefits of cloud architecture, including improved availability and enhanced security leveraging zero trust architecture.

Duration: 60 minutes

In a perfect world, you could limit user access to only the application features, functionality and data needed to do their job, but a certain level of access risk is unavoidable – to eradicate it all would limit productivity. When segregation of duties (SoD) is not possible, and you cannot have different employees responsible for performing, approving and auditing transactions or tasks, someone needs to accept responsibility for managing this risk and maintaining a record to demonstrate compliance.

Attend this webinar to learn how Oracle EBS and PeopleSoft customers can upgrade their Oracle GRC controls by:
• Centralizing the management of user access across all enterprise applications
• Monitoring everything: all applications, all configurations, all users, and all activities – all the time
• Periodically validating employee user access entitlements are still warranted with user access reviews
• Automatically monitoring, managing, and terminating temporary privileged or elevated user access to critical applications

Recording Date: Thursday, August 27, 2020
Duration: 60 minutes

Abstract:
E-Business Suite Premier Support has been extended to at least 2031. If your Tech Sales Representative is telling you that EBS is at end-of-life, think again!

EBS has made significant strides in providing you the functionality that you have been accustomed to on-premise to be available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) as well. Now with E-Business Suite available on both on-premise and OCI, EBS is able to use some of the features of OCI, which would not be available if running on other cloud provider environments.

Learning Objective:
By attending this webinar, you’ll learn how to use EBS on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with the same functionalities you have in on-premise EBS. Plus, you'll get insight into how EBS is better than it has ever been.

Non-tech executives, are you doing your best on the receiving end of a technical conversation?
IT leaders, are you doing your best to remove the tech talk from what may be a technology discussion?

Duration: 60 minutes

Abstract:
Data Migration is the process of moving data from a system or systems to a new environment. Often, it is part of a larger project deliverable and business application deployment.
Data Migration is defined as data that is huge, has heterogeneous data dictionaries, and involves complex databases and data sources. Without a sufficient understanding of both source and target applications, transferring data into Oracle Cloud application will amplify the negative impact of any incorrect or irrelevant data, perpetuate any hidden legacy problems, and increase exposure to project risk.
Data migration accounts for 25% to 30% of project effort and special attention is required to have a proven methodology and ecosystem to govern the process. The processes and practices should be governed by migration strategies, understanding the data, technical advancements, and compliances, with the goal of ensuring information is accurate and consistent.

In this webinar, you will learn from our experience in migrating data to Oracle cloud from multiple legacy applications. Key takeaways include:
* Do’s and Don’ts in data migration to Oracle SaaS cloud
* Migration strategies
* Ways to migrate data into Oracle SaaS Cloud applications
* Testing Strategies & managing accuracy
* Nexinfo’s Data Migrator – Cloud-based automation tool to migrate data from EBS to Oracle SaaS applications
