Cloud technology and Oracle Cloud architecture are providing increasing benefits to your organization. At the same time we encounter new and sometimes unexpected challenges. Are you surprised that compliance continues to be a major topic with Cloud? Don’t we outsource all those headaches to our Cloud providers? Well, we might as well face it – the challenges are significant. We will be looking at three areas:
- Data compliance (privacy, recovery, “right to be forgotten”)
- Hybrid, Multi-Cloud, Integrations - audit compliance
- Uptime, incident management, alternative facility, backup / recovery

Compliance architecture available with Oracle Cloud has evolved significantly over the last 8 years. Oracle Cloud now provides a robust set of tools for cloud compliance and continues to release additional certifications and functionality. However, none of these compliance areas can be completely off-loaded to an external vendor. Ultimately your organization is responsible for its data and its IT infrastructure. A thorough review and continual monitoring is needed, to avoid putting your enterprise at risk. We will discuss industry reports and compliance management experiences from different perspectives. We also will review some of the new offerings Oracle has put forward.

With a heavy investment in the legacy ERP system, many customers are not in a hurry to move to a cloud native ERP platform (i.e. SaaS). For these customers, the best path forward is most likely a migration project moving to either a public or private cloud for the underlying infrastructure, aka “Lift and Shift”. For a fraction of the cost customers can quickly alleviate concerns in regards to many of the most pressing issues associated with the legacy ERP platform including hardware refresh on a regular basis, outsourced maintenance, improved monitoring, ready access to top tier support professionals for urgent issues, greater scalability, enhanced business continuity service levels and improved security (yes, in most cases a properly architected cloud solution is more secure than the typical on-premise legacy platform). But, just like any business initiative, proper planning is the key to success and this panel of experts will help shed light on many of the key issues to consider based on dozens of successful Lift-and-Shift engagements

With all of the Cloud options available, how can your organization best navigate the Cloud and develop a strategy and roadmap for your ERP that best leverages all that the Cloud has to offer? Should you lift and shift to a technical solution (i.e Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS))? Or, would you be best served by moving to a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution? The options seem limitless and sometimes confusing. And then where do any remaining on-premise applications fit in? Join our thought leaders across the Oracle stack as we provide clarity in the Cloud.
