2019 is the year cloud migration from Oracle applications will pick up speed. Our recent survey, Oracle to the Cloud: Top 5 Myths, Debunked, found that 59% of Oracle users are planning to migrate their legacy applications or databases to the cloud this year. The clear majority are actively in the process of either planning or migrating their applications to public, private or hybrid cloud – and 32% of respondents noted they should have made the move already.Continue reading “Top 3 Must-Haves in an Oracle Cloud Migration Partner”
Cloud service is becoming the service businesses choose the most and Oracle isn’t different. Oracle Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is growing its base day by day with customers moving from traditional ERP to the cloud.
With Oracle’s growing cloud footprint, there is also a need for automated 3rd party integrations with Oracle SaaS to help minimize user dependencies and eliminate any potential process gaps. At Apps Associates, we try to identify these gaps, educate the user community, and help resolve these gaps with potential Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions.Continue reading “How to Eliminate Process Gaps with Oracle SaaS and Oracle PaaS”

This year, OAUG Collaborate ’19 was held April 7th – 11th in a new venue of San Antonio, TX. If you’re unfamiliar with the event, the last 5 years Collaborate was held in Las Vegas. I think it was a great idea by the OAUG committee to change the location to San Antonio because Vegas, despite being “Vegas”, started to feel a little stale to me for this event. After attending my last ~10 Collaborates, everything was starting to feel the same to me (attendees, event locations, meeting locations). I found San Antonio to be a good walking city, especially the Riverwalk (it’s full of restaurants, bars, and tours) so getting around on foot was very easy and the local hotel accommodations were also very close. Everything you needed was no more than a 20-minute walk (or 10 minutes via scooter, if you dared).Continue reading “A Fresh Scene at Collaborate19”
There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to migration and integration projects. Each one has its own unique roadmap that requires specialization so every project is a new experience for me. This is what makes my job rewarding as I always have a new challenge to solve for the client. In this blog post, I am going to share with you the approach taken with a recent project where I (along with my team) replaced a client’s outdated legacy ERP system with Oracle Cloud ERP and used Dell Boomi as the middleware platform.Continue reading “Want a No-Nonsense Integration? Make Sure It’s Done with the Right Middleware Tool”
In many companies, the enterprise data warehouse (EDW) plays a central role in information analysis and decision making. For companies that have them, EDW’s often represent a significant investment in terms of time, cost and resources. They are often used by multiple business units and departments either natively or as a source of data for local data marts. Re-platforming or replacing them can be a significant effort with a large impact on the organization as a whole. Most data warehouses that have been developed prior to the last several years were developed as on-premise or hosted solutions. So, it is natural for there to be some hesitancy when considering a move to the cloud. That said, over the past couple of years, cloud data warehouses now come with some compelling benefits that make it worthwhile to consider the option. First, let’s review some of the benefits of cloud data warehouses, then we will discuss some considerations for deciding whether moving the EDW to the cloud is the right decision for your organization.Continue reading “Should You Move Your Enterprise Data Warehouse to the Cloud?”
