After 15+ Years Running on EBS, Ten Development Learnings from the First Year Running on Fusion Apps

Monday, June 20, 2022 | 2:15 PM – 3:15 PM

Join this session to hear from an E-Business Suite veteran with more than two decades of supporting E-Business Suite, running the business for the first year in Fusion Applications. What are the key considerations and how to get a sustainable long-term IT plan for Oracle SaaS?

As an Oracle customer for almost two decades, we’ve been performing many upgrades, customizations, extensions, and modifications in all these flavors: Forms, Reports, Workflow, Java, APEX, and third-party tools. By running E-Business Suite from version 11.5.8 up to release 12.2 we went through the maze of online patching and DB upgrades, but as a natural evolution of our organization, our journey to the cloud involved the uptake of EBS to Oracle Cloud SaaS, including Oracle Cloud ERP, HCM, and PPM.

We’ve been running all our operations globally since November 2020 and it is different. In this session, attendees will get the ten most significant changes needed to adapt while transitioning from an on-premise system to a Software as a Service enterprise solution—a learning experience from the administration, reporting, and integration. We’ll share details of some important aspects that have changed, such as changes on how to extend Fusion Applications using Oracle Integration Cloud Service or choosing the right reporting solution to get the information out of the cloud.

We’ll go through how a change in EBS Workflow has to be done in Fusion Apps or if you want to automate and update employee information in PPM from HCM, which in EBS was a simple concurrent request, how OIC has to be leveraged.

Fusion Analytics Warehouse in a Nutshell

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 | 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM

Oracle offers Fusion Analytics Warehouse as an analytic platform for Oracle Cloud ERP, HCM & SCM. Do you want to know how it works, the prebuilt content that is included, and if it is the right solution for you? Maybe you are wondering if you can customize the content or add new sources.

This session will answer these questions with live demos to see FAW in action, the prebuilt content, and how to do the customizations you need.

Just Add Water: Building a Data Lakehouse

Thursday, June 23, 2022 | 9:00 AM – 12:15 PM (15-minute break from 10:30 AM – 10:45 AM)

For years, delivering analytics meant building Data Warehouses: purpose-built solutions for explicit requirements defined by data consumers. Next came the Data Lake and its focus on storing as much data as possible, initially powered by Hadoop but finding mass appeal with cloud-native options. Now the Data Lakehouse is trending: a reimagining of both concepts combined into a single data platform.

Join three seasoned industry leaders on a journey to the Data Lakehouse. We’ll describe key patterns that define a Lakehouse and the value it delivers over prior attempts at data tranquility. Finally, experience the strengths and weaknesses of three separate Lakehouse demonstrations: one using the Oracle Cloud, and two others built with competitor solutions.
