  Oracle Security for DBAs and Developers
 
Daniel Morgan, 
SecWorx


Everyone should know that the Oracle database contains more built-in security functionality than all of the other major commercial database products combined. They should also know that most of its security features are disabled by default. Knowledge of security tools that require additional licensing such as Database Vault, Database Firewall, Transparent Data Encryption, and Audit Vault are important, but equally important are the many capabilities included in your existing license that can harden a databases against attacks. This presentation will include live demos in SQL*Plus, which show you how to quickly and easily substantially improve your database's security using its built-in features.

  From Our ODTUG Kscope19 Partners at Alithya - Case Study: Using EDMCS to Solve Master Data Challenges
  
Kevin Black, 
Alithya


Enterprise Data Management Cloud Service (EDMCS) is a relatively new but critically important addition to the EPM Cloud product landscape. As clients have discovered, the challenges surrounding effective master data management do not go away just by moving to the cloud. If anything, the EPM Cloud transition has only further emphasized the importance of robust management of enterprise master data assets. Attend this webinar to hear about the practical benefits achieved by an EDMCS implementation project.

This webinar will briefly highlight the key features and concepts of EDMCS (note: EDMCS really is not “DRM in the Cloud!”). Then we will dive into a recent project involving an EDMCS implementation at a large mid-Atlantic health care insurer in support of an enterprise cost management/allocation initiative. Challenges, lessons learned, and benefits achieved will be highlighted, along with a look at the unique mix of products and technologies involved in the solution (PCMCS, Linux, and EPM Automate to name a few). We will also touch on the interesting challenges involving dimensionality, primary and alternate hierarchies, and data mappings as they relate to an EDMCS implementation for PCMCS.

 From Our ODTUG Kscope19 Partners at Datavail - Essbase On-Prem to Essbase 19c CloudHow, When, and Why
 
Kurt Mayer, 
Datavail


Essbase is a premier product for Finance—an excellent choice for Fortune 500 companies. However, companies that are on older releases of Essbase are faced with a decision: upgrade Essbase or move to Essbase 19c Cloud. This is not an easy decision, especially if your organization has invested significant capital, manpower, and infrastructure in Essbase on-prem.

Join us at this session to get insight into the benefits of upgrading vs. moving to the cloud, scenarios and case studies from our recent years of experience, and how moving to the cloud might affect your budgeting, software updates & patches, existing investments, licensing costs, and more.

From Our ODTUG Kscope19 Partners at Alithya - Keys to the Kingdom: Key Concepts to ARCS Application Design
ACEAss-01.pngNick Boronski, 
Alithya


With Account Reconciliation Cloud Service (ARCS) now included in the basket of cloud goodies, the temptation is to tear the packaging and start building. However, even Close & Consolidation experts can have trouble bridging the knowledge gap between more familiar applications (e.g., HFM, FCCS, etc.) and Oracle’s “one-stop shop” reconciliation tool. Incorrect assumptions made early on in the application design can be troublesome later as the project rolls on. Instead, provide your company with a strong foundation by having a firm grasp on functionality, best practice recommendations, and setups for scalability.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to elicit actionable requirements, review overlooked out-of-the-box functionality, and account for key design concepts in order to establish a strategic enterprise solution for both today and “tomorrow”—giving you the keys to the kingdom!
