Apps - Digital Transformation with Service Cloud for CEC

CEC has implemented Oracle Service Cloud as part of a digital transformation programme to provide a responsive online experience that is completely integrated with the CEC back office systems. The solution is truly cross-channel, with all functionality available in the contact centre, local offices and on line. As a result of the transformation, CEC has seen a very rapid channel shift. The immediate benefits are that online transactions reduce costs by more than 95% in comparison with call centre transactions, while increasing citizen engagement. David Green, Atos & Ritchie Somerville, CEC will explain how CEC went about meeting the challenges and realising all of these benefits using Service Cloud.

Drawing on 25 years experience in developing, designing and delivering large complex IS projects, Ron Ekins, Delphix, will discuss how E-Business Suite customers can accelerate the migration of on-premise solutions to the Amazon Cloud through the use Data Virtualisation.

Optimise Your Oracle Licence Estate Effectively

The risks from lack of Oracle licensing optimisation can be due to both over- or under-utilisation of the Oracle grants. Find out with the help of Sibaji Dey Choudhury, Konnagar, how to declare and discover the Oracle software installations in active use, through Capacity Plans, Scripts, Interviews and Questionnaire; why the contractual entitlement must be scrutinised, including suitability of license metrics, product levels, pertinent restrictions, and other critical elements; how all archived records, agreements and contracts must be studied to discover non-standard clauses or negotiated terms that may influence licensing compliance; how an Oracle licensing risk-profile may be created by matching the active license usage against the supported entitlements, along with general and specific consideration; and why we must have an annual license compliance report, highlighting areas of over- or under-utilisation, leading to Compliance? 

Why ERP Cloud Deployment Makes Sense

Phil Wilson, Inoapps, will take you through how pioneering Oracle Platinum Partner, Inoapps, implemented the first SaaS ERP solution in EMEA. Phil will share their experience and the methodology used to achieve this ground-breaking project. Hear why Inoapps chose ERP Cloud SaaS Applications to underpin their growth aspirations; learn from their experience of implementing Cloud ERP SaaS Applications - the do's and don'ts which will speed up your own project; see a live demo of ERP Cloud SaaS Applications as they highlight the key features and their benefits which you can leverage as well.

Oracle E-Business Suite Extensions for Endeca vs.OBI Apps: What's the Best Way to Solve Our Reporting Challenge?

The end of life of Oracle Discoverer has sparked discussion about what should replace it. E-Business Suite extension for Endeca is embedded into E-Business Suite and has many interesting features to simplify users' lives. OBI Apps is a full suite that uses a pre-built data mart and dashboarding capabilities to provide decision making data. But how do you compare these tools? How does licensing work? What does the implementation plan look like? Which is best for you? In this session Gustavo Gonzalez, CTO at IT Convergence, answers these questions and more.
