Claremont at the 2016 UKOUG Apps conference – half a dozen reasons to attend

The annual UKOUG Apps conference and exhibition returns to the ICC in Birmingham in December, with the Claremont team out in force. The conference is the largest gathering of Oracle professionals in the UK, and represents the yearly get together for the industry.

This year not only is Claremont a key sponsor, but six of our consultants are delivering presentations.  Make sure you register to book your place at the conference and look at the agenda to ensure you don’t miss out. Here is a quick synopsis of our six talks:

Cloud BI ERP at RiverStone (Monday 5th, 13:10)

Claremont recently completed an Oracle ERP implementation at global insurance company, RiverStone. One of RiverStone’s key requirements was that existing Oracle Discoverer reports needed to be recreated in the Fusion Cloud BI reporting tools. Delivered by Tim Dickinson, Senior BI Consultant, we will outline the benefits and pitfalls of working with Fusion BI reporting tools in the Cloud and tips to ensuring successful reporting with Oracle Cloud ERP.

From Stately Homes to Mobile Phones: The National Trust’s Mobile HCM Journey (Tuesday 6th, 10:05)

The National Trust is the largest membership organisation in the country. Due to the structure of workforce being varied, complex and distributed, they realised the need for a solution that maintained engagement and supported the organisation into the future. Working in collaboration with National Trust, Claremont rolled out mobile HCM throughout the organisation. Adrian Biddulph, leading expert in HCM, will discuss the challenges faced, the benefits experienced and the outcome of this transformation.

Mobile Absence Management (Tuesday 6th, 14:05)

Jo Protherough brings extensive experience in HCM and Payroll through understanding strategic HR and creating value in organisations. She will discuss approaches driving cost savings by using Oracle E-Business to manage the reduction of unplanned absence and the effectiveness of an engaging interface in allowing better data collection.

Carry on Room Booking (Tuesday 6th, 16:40)

Unite Students and Claremont have developed a booking solution using Oracle E-Business that includes accommodation booking capabilities, reactive and planned maintenance activities and integration with back-office core financials. Unite Student’s Head of IT and Digital, Ashley Hewson and Claremont’s Senior Solution Architect, Ian Monaghan will discuss how the solution brings greater functionality and integration to the room booking cycle and the benefits it has brought to Unite Students.

How underpaid are women in your company? (Wednesday 7th, 12:55)

Gender equality and transparency in pay is a political issue, and we will shortly have new legislation: In less than a year, every UK enterprise will be required to publish how much (more) their men earn compared to their female counterparts. Julian Ford, Solution Sales Representive and HR expert will discuss how to go about gathering statistics from your HCM system and how to bridge that gap.

Using Oracle E-Business Suite & the 12c Database In-Memory Option – How Unite Students Improved OLTP Performance. (Wednesday 7th, 15:10)

Michael Lane, Claremont’s Technology Capability Lead, and Mansun Stevens from Unite Students, discuss how they used the Oracle Database 11gR2 in-memory option to tune performance of an integrated Oracle E-Business and Java front-end solution. They discuss the challenges faced, how the solution was implemented, and the benefits of the solution based on their first-hand experience.
