Oracle Applications Day ERP Cloud Sessions Included;
Version 1’s CEO Tom O’Connor will kick off the event with a welcome and opening remarks before introducing your opening Keynote speaker, Chris Leone.
The world was turned upside down a few months ago, with the ripple effect of the pandemic impacting every country, every business and every person. To survive and get back to growth, businesses have to stay nimble, updating existing processes and creating new ones while keeping employees engaged and productive. Learn how Oracle is partnering with our HCM customers to successfully adapt and navigate the new world of constant change and disruption.
The pace and scale of change that organisations are facing has never been as significant and will only continue to impact them. This has only been exacerbated by Covid, which is increasing uncertainty, whilst also requiring organisations to establish greater resilience within their ways of working. So what are the conditions required to enable CFOs and their finance teams help their organisations meet these challenges? This session will explore this from the dual perspectives of professional development and technology enablers.
Join this session to learn how Insurance firm Tindall Riley is leveraging Oracle Integration Cloud and Oracle Analytics Cloud to automate integrations between its insurance systems and Oracle Cloud ERP providing data replication and reporting to Member Statements and Budgeting.
As the refresh cycle of Cloud Applications such as Oracle Cloud ERP or Oracle Cloud HCM/SCM moves to quarterly updates, it is important that this update approach is absorbed into the run and operate fabric of the organisation as seamlessly as possible. This means that every quarter each organisation needs to perform resource consuming regression testing on their implementation to ensure nothing has broken due to the changes within the quarterly update. The requirement to undertake expensive, resource intensive, manual regression testing every 12 weeks means that highly skilled employees are not performing their business-as-usual value add roles. This can prove to be a costly overhead that most businesses would like to reduce or remove.
Since the testing performed every quarter utilises the same set of manual test scripts, an automated suite of tests could be developed to optimise the execution of this suite and executed on a quarterly basis. These automated test scripts can be modified as needed if the business need changes. Version 1 aims to solve this problem with the Maximise: Automated Testing solution, which can be developed to automate tests on Oracle Fusion Cloud and more.
