Your Guide to Sessions at Oracle OpenWorld 2017 (OOW17)


 

The Oracle community is gearing up for the annual OpenWorld event. Whether you’ve already secured your ticket or are considering what the event can offer you, here’s your Redfaire guide to OOW17. 

 

Users of JD Edwards and Oracle Cloud ERP are seeking the latest product updates and Oracle news at OpenWorld this year. With more than 2,500 sessions, demos, case studies, user groups and hands-on labs, delegates have a huge pool of content. While this is great, it’s important that delegates be selective about which parts of OpenWorld 2017 are most relevant to them.

Avoid Fines with Oracle's JD Edwards and Supplier Qualification Management 
[CON1108]
Todd Griffith, Vice President Operations, CSS International

Overview:


Most construction companies are familiar with DBE compliance rules that require them to dedicate a certain percentage of their project work to disadvantaged businesses. Sounds easy enough but it's difficult to track and has cost some of the biggest firms millions of dollars in fines, plus the risk of not being able to continue work in states where penalties occurred. Oracle's JD Edwards and Oracle's supplier qualification management solutions (part of Oracle Procurement Cloud) provide integration and robust functionality that can mitigate those risks and keep your firm working in compliance with regulations. In this session, see the features and functionality of SQM, alongside JD Edwards, and learn about an implementation at one of the world's largest construction firms.
