INFOCUS Replay: Launch Orchestrations from an EnterpriseOne Page: No Coding Required

Presented by:
AJ Schifano, Oracle

Looking for a quick win with big impact? Here’s one for you. Everybody knows that orchestrations are a great way to shrink multiple steps, tasks, and forms into a simple, one-step transaction. It’s a great way to automate and simplify complex processes. But how do we launch these orchestrations? How can end users benefit from them? What if you could simply launch an orchestration from an EnterpriseOne page? A simple button, tile, or image that offers the user a few inputs, and then BAM! the orchestration is off to do its thing. The net effect is a framework that enables you to quickly develop and deploy “microapplications” to simplify your users’ most common tasks. This session will demo a few of the possibilities and show just how easy it is.
