Presentation Title: Integrated Real-Time Oracle E-Business Suite Reporting at the University of Oxford – 2 Years Post Go-Live
Speaker: Mrs Susan Gillis
Company: University of Oxford
Presentation abstract: It is approximately 2 years since the University of Oxford completed the R12 Oracle E-Business Suite re-implementation with simultaneous, successful roll-out of the EiS eXpress unified reporting solution, fully replacing ADI, Discoverer and other custom reports. During that interval this world-class organisation has continued on its challenging journey – releasing new functionality across a large and complex user-base while making significant improvements to the user experience running real-time EBS reporting. It was an ambitious program, with plenty of challenges, and we have learned a lot. Come and learn how we have progressed, whilst still maintaining security and control. The University of Oxford are happy to share their experiences, successes and challenges in the ongoing chronicle.
