Noon - Lunch

1PM - Educational Sessions

Session 1: Report Platform Consolidation by ReportsNow

Sooner or later, nearly every company finds itself owning multiple reporting software tools that have conflicting requirements, overlapping functionality, and different interfaces. These technologies often become obsolete or fall into disuse. Over time, employee training and adoption across the enterprise, coupled with the need to support a multitude of solutions, becomes a costly IT and HR liability. Mismatched technologies force users to retrieve partial data from different tools, resulting in inaccurate reporting. Join us to learn more about how tool consolidation can be an asset for your enterprise.

Session 2: Optimize Your JDE Edward Environment: Job Scheduling vs. Enterprise Workload Automation by Tidal Software

Enterprise workload automation allows you to manage your environment from a single view – with centralized command-and-control over all systems, all applications, all business processes and the jobs that comprise them. Jon Fredrickson with Oshkosh Corporation will discuss how enterprise workload automation enables Oshkosh to:

  • Centrally schedule, automate, and manage workloads across a diverse mix of systems, databases, and applications – all from one view
  • Reduce human errors and the inefficiencies of script management or having to write integrations to new systems or applications


2:45PM Educational Sessions

Session 1: Strengths and Weaknesses of the Major Hyperscale Clouds as it Relates to JD Edwards Deployments by ERP Suites

This presentation will answer your burning questions such as:

  • Which Cloud delivers the best performance for JD Edwards?
  • Which Cloud delivers the best economics for JD Edwards?
  • What are the landmines that need to be avoided when deploying JD Edwards into the Cloud?

Session 2: A Process-Driven Approach to Continuous Innovation for JDE E1 9.2 by DWS

Join this session to understand how adopting a process-driven approach allows you to analyze the impact of the changes on your particular system set up, ensuring you can make regular updates with less business disruption and minimizing any downstream risk.

3:45 - Giveaways!

IMPORTANT NOTES: Based on the current environment and recommendations by local, state, and national health agencies we are STRONGLY recommending that all attendees wear masks while attending this event.
