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.


Oracle Presentation 3:
Pratik Goradia
VP of Operations
Signum Group

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.
