CTB, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway manufacturing company, had been running and maintaining a highly customized and outdated JD E

Moving Past PeopleSoft – Evaluating Oracle Cloud during a Phased Migration
Presented by: Richard Merrill, Elire, Inc.

Many Cloud adopters decided to take a phased approach to Cloud migration, maintaining a hybrid on-prem and cloud ecosystem to
... meet their business needs. Now that cloud has expanded to contain more robust, enterprise functionality, the time to move out of a hybrid environment is on the horizon.

The Importance of Archiving Before an Upgrade or the Cloud
Presented by: Mr. David Shea, ARCTOOLS

Upgrades are a lot of work. For some, new features make the upgrade exciting. For others, it’s just more work. Poor performan
... ce in CRP will discourage users from the start. Re-platforming or moving to the cloud is also a lot of work... likely significantly more than an in-place upgrade. And it could end up being more expensive than you expect. Archiving before or as part of an upgrade changes the experience for EVERYONE. There are many benefits, ranging from faster testing to quicker conversions. But the most important may be the vast improvement in user enthusiasm for the upgrade. Archiving a CRP environment will provide a significant performance boost that will help get ALL users excited about the upgrade, not just those with new features. Archiving production prior to the upgrade will shorten the time to perform the upgrade, and improve performance after the upgrade. Archiving before moving to the cloud has all the same benefits described above, but can also result in significant savings in your cloud costs. Space usage is a significant chunk of your bill. Save a terabyte in production and you can save that same terabyte multiple times - PD, PY, QA, CRP, training and sandbox environments... Your 1TB just became 6TB. And less data requires less horsepower (processors) and memory to process. So you can get better performance from a lower-spec server. ARCTOOLS has helped hundreds of customers archive JDE data. This session will focus on several customers that purged and archived before or during their upgrade or move to the cloud. Particular focus will be on a customer that made the decision to archive in the middle of their upgrade. With only weeks until go-live, the archive was done in parallel with CRP. User enthusiasm rose significantly and the archive was a success. See More

What is the correct migration path from Oracle on-premise ERP to Oracle Cloud ERP?
Presented by: Howard Engle, Argano

Implementing Oracle on-premise ERP typically meant implementing the full ERP package; however, Oracle Cloud ERP is flexible a
... nd provides options: implementing the full ERP package or pieces of the ERP package. This flexibility provides customers with multiple migration pathways from Oracle on-premise ERP to Oracle Cloud ERP. Based on business requirements and risk tolerance, customers can execute a single-phase transformational migration by moving from their on-premise ERP to Cloud ERP in a single effort, or execute a multi-phase transformation migration by moving a single business function or business process followed by subsequent business functions or processes. There is no single approach when moving from Oracle on-premise ERP to Oracle Cloud ERP. The correct approach is the approach that addresses the specific requirements of a customer. Worthington Industries and ODL, Inc. are both moving from Oracle on-premise ERP to Oracle Cloud ERP, but are taking different approaches to the migration. Worthington Industries is taking a multi-phase, business process approach, while ODL, Inc. is taking a single-phase approach. Business drivers, such as revenue growth, supply chain enhancements, and industry requirements, and technology drivers, such as existing ERP limitations, user adoption, maintenance, and support influenced the approach each company is taking. The challenges Worthington Industries and ODL, Inc. encountered are likely the same challenges other customers are encountering. This session will provide details about what Worthington Industries and ODL, Inc. faced and provide insight into the decisions that were made and why those decisions were made, leading to how each approached the migration from Oracle on-premise ERP to Oracle Cloud ERP.

Why Transition From On-Premises Applications to Oracle Cloud HCM?
Presented by: Chris Maurio, Argano

In the past, older, on-premises HCM and payroll solutions were selected to meet operational requirements such as benefits, un
... ion management, employee paychecks, and managing time and labor costs. Today, leading companies are not only looking at operational requirements but focusing on sourcing, hiring, and retaining top talent within the organization. This requires more focus on the employee experience, career development, training and certifications, and performance evaluations. While the operational requirements stand as table stakes, the enhanced employee experience and ability to meet the organization's strategic initiatives to grow and develop the workforce, provide meaningful interactions, and get the right person at the right time are at the forefront. Hear how Argano has helped customers build a roadmap to view HCM and Payroll technology through a new lens and deployed solutions aligned with how organizations have evolved from their legacy software.See More
