EASE THE BURDEN OF YOUR SAAS UPDATE WITH AUTOMATED TESTING

Event Image

Oracle delivers new updates every quarter to help manage your business with features delivered enabled and immediately available to end users. As this occurs, extra emphasis is placed on the importance of functional/regression testing to minimize the risk of impact on any downstream systems. This is why it is critical that automated testing is built into an organization’s regular cadence of updates.

The right testing solution can help improve all areas of end-to-end testing from test planning and management, test script development and execution, results analysis and defect monitoring. And, believe it or not, “only 45% of organizations believe they have the right testing strategy, process, and methodology in place” (World Quality Report, 2020-21).

If you are struggling to find a solution to your testing problem for Oracle Cloud Applications, join this session to see how you can ease and speed up the burden of functional/regression testing, without involving technical resources. Using a tool that is application aware allows business analysts and super-users to organize, set up, modify and maintain test scripts–saving up to 70% of time spent creating and maintaining test scripts and 60% of time spent in test execution.

PRACTICAL TRAINING: HOW TO GET OFF THE HAMSTER WHEEL OF ORACLE CLOUD QUARTERLY UPDATES

Event ImageOne of the key challenges Oracle Cloud customers have is keeping pace with the quarterly upgrade schedule for Oracle Cloud applications.

A typical upgrade process involves several routine tasks, such as:
-Reviewing upcoming changes and assessing the potential impact on users and existing processes
-Performing UAT cycles in a sandbox environment, in preparation for the production rollout
-Preparing and disseminating documentation and other self-help materials in case of significant UI or process changes
-Assessing the impact on user productivity of issues introduced by the upgrade, to adequately allocate IT and other resources towards their resolution
-Finally, being able to engage a fast response team to deal with such issues, in orders to minimize their impact on business

The team tasked with managing this process can be easily overwhelmed, given that these upgrade cycles happen so frequently.

In this webinar we will discuss some practical tips and tools that can help you effectively prepare for and deal with these upgrades, making your life easier, helping you deliver a better quality of service to your business stakeholders: the actual end users – your employees.

Learning Objectives:
1. Insights into the moments that matter in the Oracle Cloud Upgrade
2. Reality vs Expectation of Cloud Upgrades
3. Best Practice Processes to save you time, money and stress

THE LAYERS OF YOUR IT INFRASTRUCTURE: CAN YOU SUPPORT YOUR EOL SYSTEMS & HOW?

Customized and often proprietary applications serve as a mission-critical function in an organization’s IT infrastructure. However, these applications present unique challenges. They are often written to run on specific operating systems (OS) and hardware platforms and are difficult to port and migrate.

As the underlying OS and host hardware ages, IT Departments face an increased risk of downtime as spare parts become difficult to source and their in-house technical support staff either retire or move on to other employment.

As the sun sets on Solaris and SPARC, the Unix OS and RISC processor, IT Directors and Managers are tasked with (a) ensuring their application’s underlying OS is properly supported, and (b) any risks associated with aging hardware that lead to unplanned downtime are mitigated.

In order to maintain uptime and availability of the application, how do you support each layer of your infrastructure if both the OS and hardware are at (or approaching) end-of-life, without making any significant changes to your application or business processes?

Learning Objectives:
Understand the layers of infrastructure and where there is a gap in support as well as the overall drain it has on your infrastructure.
How you can maintain support for your end-of-life operating systems, mitigate perceived security vulnerabilities and meet audit requirements while modernizing your infrastructure.

OATUG TECH SIG TALK – TIME TO UPGRADE: TAKING YOUR EBS DATABASE TO 19C

Oracle Database 19c was certified for the E-Business Suite in late summer 2019. This means that companies have until the end of 2020 to complete their upgrade to 19c in order to avoid paying extended support fees. This presentation will review the process of upgrading from 12.1.0.2 to 19c in an E-Business Suite 12.2 environment. It will discuss the architectural changes done as part of the database upgrade including moving from a CDB with a single PDB.

This updated session will include a discussion of the changes to cloning that you will need to make.
