August 13, 2019 - Why Now is the Time to Migrate Legacy Oracle Workloads to AWS

Bill Saltys

Major shifts have been happening in the world of IT. Cloud is becoming the de facto standard as market adoption hurdles to a majority position. With that, the time has come to embrace cloud solutions so you can focus on accelerating the growth of your business – not on operational management and maintenance such as unforeseen system issues and unplanned downtime. In fact, most senior management professionals are already on board with the need to migrate to the cloud, with 86 percent of IT decision makers (ITDMs) saying they have mandated adopting a cloud migration strategy. But what’s holding some businesses back?

August 7, 2019 - 10 Reasons Why to Move to the Cloud

Todd Ledet

If you missed our 10 Reasons why to move to the cloud webinar, no worries, I’m here to fill you in. As an Oracle Platinum partner we’ve implemented over 115 Oracle solutions and growing. One example I would like to share is when we worked with a client who had managed their own environment, but turned to us to help with implementing their Finance, SCM, HCM, EPM and Technical software. Their IT team didn’t have the bandwidth to manage all of the IT implementation so they turned to Apps Associates for their expertise to ensure they met deadlines and stayed on track. With Apps Associates on board an agile methodology was implemented to keep the project moving forward smoothly. Apps Associates engages with the customer resources to provide support, guidance, management and troubleshooting. Being open and realistic about strengths and weaknesses sets the framework for quick problem resolution and contributes to the success of these projects.

May 7, 2019 - How to Eliminate Process Gaps with Oracle SaaS and Oracle PaaS

Arun Kumar

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.

April 22, 2019 - Should You Move Your Enterprise Data Warehouse to the Cloud?

Myles Gilsenan

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.

Moving Your Legacy Applications to Cloud

One of the most frequent questions that we are asked by customers is whether their Oracle license and support will remain valid when running on Amazon Web Services (“AWS”). The short answer is ‘yes’.

There is a growing number of our customers that have made the move in order to realize the benefits inherent with on demand, utility-based cloud as well as AWS maturity and breadth of services. For additional insight, listen to customer experience and resulting operational gains at Integer Holdings Corp (NYSE: ITGR) cited during excerpts of a recent session, “Migrating Oracle Applications to AWS Cloud”.
