24×7 Operations for a Global Company Running Oracle E-Business Suite
A financial and information services company describes how it keeps its Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 environment running around the globe, minimizing downtimes and consolidating operations. Key components include corporate governance, data standards, and common business processes. A 24 x 7 operation, by definition, allows a very short window to perform maintenance and apply patches. This session reviews some of the technical and functional strategies required to operate a global enterprise.
Mergers and Acquisitions: Realizing the Value
Expanding beyond the organic threshold requires acquiring other companies in order to increase economies of scale and scope. But mergers and acquisitions carry the added weight of introducing redundant systems that duplicate functionality. Nearly two-thirds of all mergers fail to capitalize on their potential synergy due to an inability to integrate or consolidate. In this session, learn how to overcome the value gap to take advantage of emergent synergies by aligning your transaction and transition efforts.
The Tower of Babel: Removing the Silos
Large enterprises face significant challenges getting disparate parts of the business to work together. Inaccurate forecasts, contradictory information, and the inability to address compliance requirements result in increased costs and risks. Multiple instances, different charts of accounts, and a lack of governance and control result in silos and multiple sources of truth. In this session, examine how silos impair financial operations, create barriers to growth and innovation, and what you can do to remove them.
Designing a Chart of Accounts for a Global Company Going to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12
A good chart of accounts provides flexibility for recording and reporting accounting information, provides structure for managing business uniformly, and enhances communication across all parts of the business. There are five fundamental criteria for creating a chart of accounts in Oracle E-Business Suite that optimizes business growth and flexibility while also minimizing back-end accounting maintenance. In this webinar, examine the details of the five criteria with a focus on new features in Release 12 including Subledger Accounting and Ledger Sets that provide an added incentive to adopt a well-designed chart of accounts.
