I had best start this post with a clarification, the way to Cloud Applications previously known as Fusion, a clarification I have a whole post about.
Oracle have been pushing the Cloud Applications for several years, and whilst they have sold well, the shift to E Business Suite customers moving their applications to the cloud applictaions has now well and truely gathered momentum with many deals I see today this scenario.
Oracle sell the applications as a solution as they should, but if you have EBS today, if you are currently supporting EBS you are also interested in how you get there?
My next speaking opportunity is the UKOUG event Applications: Journey to Cloud event on 8th March and hopefully there is something in the agenda for everyone.
But before the UKOUG event Oracle have their Modern Business Experience event this week. I love this event plenty of customers talking and thought leaders sharing their wisdom. This event is about the WHY you should consider the solutions Oracle offer and the difference they can make to your organisation.
The Office of National Statistics is a well publicised Certus customer and their sessions at the MBX will talk about the drivers for and advantages gained by their move to Cloud ERP and HCM, and then at the UKOUG event they will be back talking about how their support team have taken to their new system and the opportunities it has given them.
I have a couple of presentations, one about how to approach your EBS to Cloud project and another on PaaS4SaaS which cold be how you take those customisations to Cloud.
Look at both agendas, so much being covered from two different angles, something for you all.
