Oracle Cloud ERP: You have arrived, now what?

Presented by:
James McBride, Financial Systems Manager, Voya Financial

In this session we will discuss the often asked question: What do you wish you had known? The ride from On-Premise to Cloud is always hectic and full of learning. But, that learning does not stop at Go-Live. Given the ever-changing and evolving nature of the Cloud Applications there is always more. Let’s spend some time discussing lessons learned.
Learning Objective 1: Discuss how to handle change in the Cloud; whether it be technology or business process. The rate of change is significant and often well beyond that of on-premise. How can we handle that and what resources are key to this activity?
Learning Objective 2: Discuss the impact on people. The necessitated level of user ownership is different between on-premise and Cloud applications. We will spend some time discussing those observed differences and the impact on the day-to-day.

Calling all End-Customers’, all SIs’ and MSPs’. Are you receiving/providing the testing services demanded?

Presented by:
Tyler Price, Regional Sales Manager, Dimension SwifTest

The days when testing was the customers’ problem are long gone. With the Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications being updated every quarter it is no longer reasonable for a Systems Integrator (SI) to overlook the importance of testing. Or to make testing the end-customer’s problem.
During an initial implementation, doing a good job of the functional testing required is essential. Arguably, doing a good job means automating that testing. The functional testing that you do during an initial implementation, after all, is going to be the regression testing that needs to be performed every quarter by yourselves as an end-customer or as a managed service provider (MSP).
If you are an end-customer – do you want to test yourself, buy a testing service, or take a hybrid-approach?
If you are an SI/MSP – how are you going to differentiate yourself and your services?
What Oracle services or products will be covered during the session?
Test automation for Oracle Fusion Cloud Apps
What will delegates learn if they attend?
An understanding of the importance of highly structured and well-documented testing.
How best to perform updates during quarterly testing.
How good testing mitigates risk and eases the burden IT places on the business.
Why should they go?
As an end-user – determine the optimum solution for your testing needs – uncover significant time-savings, improved documentation, reduced risk and minimal disruption.
As a SI/MSP – how to add genuine and tangible value to the services you offer to your clients.
Who is the target audience?
End-users who use Oracle Fusion Cloud Apps.
SI/MSPs offering testing services as part of their capabilities to clients.
