Unlock the full value of Oracle EBS Procurement through iSupplier Portal and Spend Classification
Procurement is often viewed as a necessary but non-strategic part of running a business – you need to purchase goods and services, you try to find them as inexpensively as possible, you make your purchase and then pay your vendors. Pretty straight forward. But for companies that spend hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars per year purchasing the business essentials, procurement can be both a huge expense and a key area in which to identify savings.  This session from Data Intensity will focus specifically on 2 Oracle EBS applications that help organizations automate procurement processes and gain better visibility into Procurement Spend.

How many 9's you have on your performance/availability reports doesn't matter when your users are unhappy

You have built the ultimate application environment, redundant servers, redundant storage, and redundant datacenters. You have even patched your application to the latest levels, followed every best practice. Yet, the one thing you don’t know is also the one problem that will get you stuck in a never ending loop of conference calls and meeting…. User performance.  What if you could monitor what the users see, and understand what systems, what web serveries, and even what database calls are slow in responding to user requests. What if you could even drill down and understand what is causing the performance problems? This session will show you how to monitor end user performance, and how to use the same technology to rapidly identify issues that are causing your users pain.

All Cloud…or some Cloud…there is a path that’s right for you!

The cloud can truly transform the way you do business with customers, collaborate with partners, and communicate among employees. However, each company’s path to Cloud may be different from the next and depends on a variety of factors, not limited to just cost and convenience.

Signum will provide an analysis of what factors to consider when establishing a strategic path to the Oracle Cloud if you:

  1. Have a global suite of Oracle Applications
  2. Have one or two Oracle Applications (Ex.  GL, HR, HFM)
  3. Have other cloud applications, no Oracle
  4. Want to connect existing apps to the Oracle Cloud
  5. Just have questions about Oracle Cloud

Whatever your situation, we will discuss the tools and strategies to help you modernize your business in the Cloud.

Signum Group is the enterprise resource planning expert.  With over 20 years of successful projects and over 200 clients, we’ve led and implemented projects across four continents, covering a wide range of industries:  utility, oil & gas, manufacturing and transportation among others.  Our employees have deep, cross-sector experience and industry knowledge to help plan and manage your assets with optimal efficiency and reliability.  We are familiar with the unique needs of a maintenance organization and best practices.

Unlock the true potential of Oracle Procurement “fast”

There is no longer a need to “wait” for unlocking value from Oracle procurement applications.  Contrary to popular opinion, Oracle is moving at the speed of procurement, procurement organizations need to be selective on where they focus first to achieve quick value.  The full suite of Oracle Procurement Cloud helps businesses streamline their procurement processes; having said that, cloud software can be deployed either stand-alone or can be integrated with on-premises applications based on business priorities.  The software deployed can either augment the procurement processes already in use or can enhance a function specific capability.

The Business Case for ‘Lifting and Shifting’ Oracle EBS to the Oracle Public Cloud

While the race to the cloud continues, many organizations are not ready to rip and replace their existing on premise Oracle ERP systems and launch into a new and costly SaaS software implementation. Fortunately, SaaS is not the only rocket ship to the cloud. A much less intrusive approach is to re-platform your existing ERP software to the infrastructure cloud layer. This session will explain the basic concepts of cloud computing, evaluate alternative cloud ERP strategies and build the business case to continue to leverage your existing EBS investment.

How to automate journal entries by using the Oracle Allocation module to book Federal and State taxes, Allowance Loan Loss, Cash rolls to HQ, Insurance premiums, Amortization and many others.

How to use Oracle workflow to electronically approve journals and store of supporting documents for audit purposes. We will cover the setup steps and demo uploading a journal entry, the approval steps, posting and retrieval of the supporting documents.

INVENTORY – Fixed Assets CAN do that!

Ever participate in an on-site inventory count with temporary workers? Did the process run smoothly and efficiently?  Did the process ensure audit compliance for your company’s fixed assets?  My guess is there’s probably room for improvement in this area.  The reason is that full asset inventory cycle counts can be time consuming, difficult to coordinate, and very expensive.

-Come see how Oracle Fixed Assets can be utilized to tie system counts to physical counts. 

-Come see how business teams within your organization can help streamline the asset inventory process.

-Come see how Atlanta OAUG shares new and innovative ideas for improving everyday processes….See you there

Lunch, Learn & Lift Your Testing Strategy Workshop

We would like to invite you to join the Atlanta OAUG in coordination with IT Convergence on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM EDT for 'Lunch, Learn & Lift Your Testing Strategy Workshop. This workshop will provide members with exposure to new testing methods that are evolving as project life-cycles change.

Are you expected to deliver quality software faster and under shorter project life cycles? With Testing taking a key role early on the project life cycle, the 'Shift-left' strategy is becoming a goal for most organizations.

To cater to faster delivery, many IT leaders find it challenging to transition from traditional testing methodologies such as Waterfall to Agile, DevOps and Continuous Integration models that would provide more robust and efficient results in return.

The workshop will focus on:

• Building the business case for testing investment with data and ROI
• Solutions to overcome common challenges you face today
• Tactical aspects of testing
• How to benefit from automation
• Whiteboard session

The workshop will last for 2.5 hours and is intended for all IT & business leaders that are looking to rethink their testing strategy and take a step further into building predictive, cast-iron testing frameworks.

This event is free to attend and lunch will be served.

Event Details

Date & Time: August 2, 2017 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM EDT

Location: Northpark Town Center Office Complex (Peachtree-Dunwoody Conference Room)

Invoice Automation in the Cloud for Oracle EBS
 
Invoice processing is time-consuming and expensive work. This is especially true if invoicing involves inefficient paper-based processes, manual approvals and manual data-entry into your Oracle EBS system. These inefficiencies negatively affect your bottom line by increasing costs, creating liability & accrual blind-spots and causing other cash management, reconciliation & reporting challenges.

In this presentation you will learn how to:

  • Automate up to 90% of invoice processing, and eliminate 3x the costs associated with legacy approaches
  • Eliminate accrual blind-spots, pinpoint bottlenecks and have complete visibility of your entire AP process
  • Save millions with advanced discount management and early payment optimization

Oracle Financial Cloud: Product Overview and Strategy for Moving to the Cloud

Change is the new constant and for many companies, the pace of change has surpassed the ability to respond.  For these companies, the issue is largely due to their current on premise ERP systems being unable to support growth, technology advances, and the need for rapid innovation. Hear how Oracle’s Financial Cloud utilizes digital technologies, integration and automation to enhance the user experience and streamline your financial business processes. View a brief product demonstration that will enable you to envision the “art of the possible” as you consider how to migrate and enhance your on premise financial processes to the cloud. Understand lessons learned from an actual customer story that will highlight the process for planning and migrating from an on premise financial suite (including EBS) to the Oracle Financial Cloud and the results, both qualitative and quantitative, that the customer experienced.

Oracle Cloud PaaS-4-SaaS:  Adoption strategy for transitioning from on-premise to as-a-service.

There’s no better time to get a handle on your cloud adoption strategy then today.  The global marketplace is driving rapid change and organizations must be able to proactively adapt.  Oracle technologies and applications are the backbone of enterprise, but the speed to implement these systems has been a bottleneck for change.  The Oracle Cloud has greatly matured over the past two years and is positioned to accelerate time to value metrics.

The on-premise to as-a-service transformation is not a Big Bang, and like every generational change it comes with its own set of challenges.  This presentation will discuss the various cloud implementation models (private, hybrid, public), and give an overview of Platform Services (SCS, ICS, PCS, CCS, ACS) and how they integrate with Software Services (CX, EPM, ERP, HCM, SCM) to create an “EBS like” ecosystem.

The value of creating a PaaS-4-SaaS adoption strategy gives your organization the ability to dip your toes into the cloud without drowning in the transformation.  There are a lot of new and exciting features in the Cloud Service offerings that take the Best of Breed from Oracle’s ever-growing portfolio.  These new Services are built to compliment, extend, integrate and replace legacy systems with a scalable and elastic enterprise solution to grow with demand.

The Oracle Cloud is here and we can unequivocally say that there is no turning back.  The only thing you can do now is be prepared….and hold onto your socks.

Migrating to and integrating with Oracle ERP Cloud from on-premise applications:

More and more organizations are moving their IT investments to the cloud by implementing native cloud applications using the SaaS model.  Oracle has an extensive and strong cloud ERP suite fully supporting Financials and Supply Chain functions for most organizations.  While the benefits of the SaaS model are obvious, IT organizations do have questions and concerns around migrating to and implementing cloud applications.  Many of these questions are around integration, data conversion, security and customization of the Cloud ERP modules.

Our session attempts to cover some of these topics and answer questions around available tools, methodologies and best practices for implementing, integrating and operating Oracle Cloud ERP modules.
