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.

August 7, 2019 - 10 Reason 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.

Jaret Balter

Staff meeting-1Conference room pilot testing (CRP), can often be an overwhelming event for a client. In a typical project cycle there will be two or more CRP’s. The first CRP (CRP1) is used to demonstrate the proposed solution using generic data. The purpose in not to test data but to verify the validity of the solution. The implementation partner will drive the CRP1 session while discussing features, functionality, and the solution. CRP2 (and later CRPs) is designed to incorporate the client into the testing event. Client data will be set up in the system, tweaks coming out of CRP1 have been made and the client will get their hands on the keyboard and transacting.
