10:30am – 11:30am – Orchestration Based Scanning Solution given by Dave Sexton from ERP Suites

The latest Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) is driven by cyber-physical technology advancements on the factory floor. Today companies leverage JD Edwards native functionality and take advantage of an Orchestration-based technology to integrate critical factory equipment. They are using Orchestrations as their pathway into Industry 4.0 to include scanning, time entry, and work order completions to minimize shipping errors and potential liability issues. With all the pressure on today’s supply chain, companies are losing business due to fill-rates. They need tighter integration of data and reduced costs. Other business objectives are to reduce shipping errors, increase their material handlers’ productivity, and reduce the added cost of supporting multiple systems. Attend this session to hear multiple customer success stories who are doing this today

Simplify Management and Execution of Complex Business Processes with Workload Automation presented by Diana Smith, Enterprise Account Executive & Eric Smith, Product Support Engineer from Tidal Software

Learn how complex IT environments can be simplified with sophisticated scheduling capabilities such as advanced calendaring, SLA management and event-based scheduling. In this session you’ll learn about: 1) integrating JD Edwards workflows into larger business processes for greater performance and efficiency, 2) using advanced scheduling capabilities to solve for business and technology requirements and 3)facilitating self-service with visualization features such as graphing, charting and dashboards

Option B

The Future of Knowledge Transfer presented by Patrick Dawson, Director of Training at ReportsNow

~ Like many JD Edwards users, your organization is encountering a retiring workforce and challenges with transferring knowledge to new employees. Some users are also facing the imminent sunsetting of Oracle’s popular User Productivity Kit (UPK) for training. How do you look beyond the past ways of sharing information without all the headaches of a complex new implementation?

This session will discuss the changing landscape for employee knowledge transfer, where organizations are heading with learning and sharing of knowledge, and methods for seeking tools to solve the new normal. To meet the self-paced needs of your workforce, your solution should be searchable, translatable, and an easy-to-use repository for your shared knowledge and training. This session will share one such avenue to address a solution.
