Increasing Financial Intelligence: How to Create Time for Strategic Analysis

Finance often spends too much time on reporting instead of analysis. While the office of the CFO is looked to for strategic insights, teams are bogged down with manual reporting using stale data. Automating reporting tasks can improve productivity and financial intelligence, leaving more time for strategic analysis.

• Easily create accurate, refreshable reports with real-time data for better analysis
• Reduce the risk of report inaccuracies or errors
• Make recurring tasks faster and easier
• Gain flexible drill-downs to the transaction-level data

See it and Solve it! Get the right JDE monitoring & performance visibility for fast, accurate answers.

Businesses must support users and assure JDE performance & availability while also innovating and deploying new features, but often struggle to find the root cause of user complaints, slow performance, intermittent errors, or problematic database requests.

In this session, we’ll discuss common challenges of JDE monitoring and diagnostics in production environments and how 100% end-to-end transaction visibility helps solve them – providing quick and accurate answers & insights.

We’ll demonstrate CatEyes for JD Edwards with examples of how to easily pinpoint the root cause of production user complaints, performance issues, or intermittent errors – as well as backtrace from any database query or log entry to the application/job and real user that performed it.

Now you can say goodbye to war rooms and focus on your business!

Asset Management Solutions will showcase three of our most popular EnterpriseOne solutions. Customers have asked for these capabilities for years…now you can deliver them to your end-users in days.

Enhanced Item Search – Are your users frustrated searching for Items? Pretty sure you hear complaints about CASE SeNsiTiviTY, abbrvatng wrds due to 30-charctr spc lmts, inability to use multip* wildcar* in the same search field, etc.

Auditing your ERP – a Risk Assessment in less than an hour, a Security Build in less than a day. What can possibly go wrong?

Do you think that fixing your JDE security is too complex and too expensive?

There are two elements to this problem, firstly understanding the risks on your system, who can access sensitive data, who can commit potential frauds. And secondly fully itemizing the rewards of integrating good controls around the system. Sustainable solutions that satisfy the auditors, but also make good business sense. Build true savings that will commit the CFO in a business case that ties in all the stakeholders, involving the business in owning their ERP system.

The starting point is an audit, an assessment of where you are now, so that together with a skilled consultant you can plan your path to Best Practice. An audit of your system will also satisfy the auditors, and will enable you to plan how to remediate your risks. Up until now, to audit the security of your ERP you needed to spend a lot of money with an audit firm, or a lot of time with technicians writing SQL  Now you can get answers overnight, with 30 minutes technical effort.

This session will give you the answers to how you remediate such a complex security environment, and enable you to plan security and controls around your most valuable asset.

Financial Intelligence & PeopleSoft: Connecting You to Your Data for Greater Productivity

Financial intelligence isn’t software; it’s higher order thinking. The remit of the modern CFO encompasses guide and governance responsibilities, requiring a focus on analysis to drive business forward. PeopleSoft nVision lets you work in Excel, but isn’t finance-owned. To gain financial intelligence, finance needs to spend less time formatting reports and queries and submitting requests to IT, and more on strategic analysis and improvements.

Three key components get you to this position:
• Easy access to real-time data in Excel that intuitively joins PeopleSoft data, including subledgers
• Flexible drill-down capabilities that support dimensions and views
• An intuitive platform that uses existing Excel skills instead of technical knowledge for query building

Enable Secure Remote Access: Leveraging User Behavior Analytics to Uncover Hidden Financial Risks

With a rapid transition to remote access, organizations are struggling to maintain oversight into critical financial operations. For many, enabling remote access to PeopleSoft FSCM is a new requirement – even for those who had previously allowed remote access to HCM Self-Service. Because visibility is a cornerstone of oversight, organizations must enhance how they monitor user activity in order to develop rapid response and risk mitigation strategies.

In this session, you’ll learn how implementing user behavior logging and analytics provides the necessary insights to overcome blind spots.

Additionally, you will learn how to:
• Gain real-time visibility into user activity to detect anomalies and expedite incident response
• Perform forensic investigations with a complete audit trail of access attempts and user activity
• Simplify audits and analysis with drill-down capabilities into specific events, to review login information, data access, usage, and more
• Cut your breach response and remediation time from months to minutes.

Testing Testing 123… Script and Automate with Swiftest for Cloud Apps and JDE

Companies today are having to test their implementations of package software more frequently. If you are on Cloud Apps you are dealing with quarterly updates. If you are on JDE you are being encouraged to upgrade and then to stay current. Either way, you need to take action. You need to think about the way you test. Speed and ease the burden of testing. For critical transactional processes especially, it is not an option to rely on the testing done by Oracle. You need to script and test. Quickly. Efficiently. Effectively.

Transcepta Automates UCSD’s AP Process to Drive Savings and Shorten the Payment Cycle

UC San Diego needed a platform to automate AP processes and facilitate 100% straight-through invoice processing. The platform also needed to be flexible and accommodate future ERP migrations without disrupting the supply chain.


UCSD selected Transcepta because of their proven supplier onboarding process, and Transcepta’s status as the only P2P solution with an Oracle Validated Integration. Because UCSD’s suppliers connect directly to the Transcepta Network, Transcepta’s integration can simply point from UCSD’s existing ERP to Oracle, removing the headache of transitioning suppliers to ensure disruption-free migration. With Transcepta, UCSD has connected their suppliers and is on track to launch Oracle Cloud. For more information, visit Transcepta.com.

Join Yvonne Grobe, UCSD’s AP Manager and Kelly McKenzie, Transcepta’s Sales Director, for a discussion about advances in P2P technology, and learn how UCSD leveraged Transcepta to automate AP.
