The Technical, Economic, and Cultural Significance of Orchestrator for 2021 and Beyond

Presented by AJ Schifano, Oracle

Monday, February 15 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET

At the risk of sounding cliché, 2020—wow! Glad that one’s over. According to the calendar, it is. But events in 2020 have left an indelible imprint on how we think, plan, act, and react. Words like “risk mitigation,” “pivot,” and “quickly” have all taken on new meaning. And although 2020 might be behind us, the bar has been forever raised in terms of speed, agility, and the ability to react to the unknown.

If your ERP system is—as it should be—the lifeblood of your enterprise, the source of truth for your financials, assets, projects, and people, a “digital twin” of your business, then it cannot remain stagnant as the world whirls around it with change. There will always be the fundamental need to forecast, transact, record, report, and analyze the data that drives our enterprises. But the manner in which we do it—the actors and the actions—will change at the pace of a changing world.

For JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Orchestrator has proven to be the foundation of the JDE Digital Platform, enabling customers to simplify, automate, integrate, and extend their ERP in response to a changing world. Technically it is embedded in the EnterpriseOne architecture and interacts with tools, systems, and Cloud services according to industry standards. Economically, it offers utility at a fraction of the time, cost, and maintenance of historical solutions. And perhaps most significantly—culturally—it has made an entire class of citizen developers feel empowered to solve their own problems with their own hands.

In this session, we will reflect on, and predict, the ways in which the JDE Digital Platform, led by Orchestrator, ensures that your ERP system and business data remain as fluid as the world around it.

We have all heard the reasoning to move your on-premise JDE environment to the cloud (greater efficiency, improved security, save money, etc.). What you really want to know is IF you move to the cloud, what are the things to prepare for, and most importantly, what things should you avoid at all costs? Join Denovo and Oracle as we walk-through real-world examples of how your move to the cloud can be smooth flying or full of turbulence.

Newest Tool in 9.2.5: How to Leverage the Assertion Framework for Orchestrations

Presented by Bryan Rose, Terillium

Thursday, February 18 from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Orchestrations are a powerful way to automate EnterpriseOne transactions and integrate to third-party systems and IoT devices. The integrity of an orchestration has two critical aspects: first, it runs without error, and second, it produces the data that the designer expects. The Assertion Framework enables the orchestration designer to specify, in other words, to “assert” the values that are expected to be produced by an orchestration. In this session, you will learn how to leverage the assertion framework in your organization.

Navigating Your Payroll Process Through a Pandemic with the Help of Tools, Tricks, and Orchestrator

Presented by Matt Hinds, Opus Group

Friday, February 19 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET

How do you pull the data for this Payroll Protection Program report the CFO is asking for in two days? Don’t fear, your JDE payroll analysts will save the day. We will cover how to create reports from tables and perform custom queries. Orchestrator is a new tool that JDE for users, but the presentation will show examples of how to use it in your payroll process to save you time.
