September 13, 2019 - #OracleOnAWS – More Customers Say Yes!

Dustin Brines

As we all know, leading organizations need IT to be a business enabler, focused more on core business goals and less on maintaining infrastructure. Unfortunately, industry analysts continue to report that IT organizations spend more than 70% of their time making sure their applications are keeping pace. As a result, customers and prospects are exploring moving their legacy Oracle applications, databases, and technology to the cloud. The goals are simple: reduce costs, increase efficiencies and eliminate long- term contracts.

Tawana Dyer

San Francisco is known for their food, cable cars and of course the Golden Gate Bridge, but being less than an hour away from Silicon Valley, it’s also known for technology. If you’re attending this year’s Oracle OpenWorld, September is one of the best time to visit this city. The conference is located at the Moscone Convention Center and it is within walking distance to many wonderful restaurants.

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 16, 2019 - Top 3 Must-Haves in an Oracle Cloud Migration Partner

Bill Saltys

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.

May 3, 2019 - A Fresh Scene at Collaborate19

Peter Quintiliani

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).
