Oracle Cloud ERP: Lessons Learned from Trailblazers breakfast briefing

Last week, we hosted our “Oracle Cloud ERP: Lessons Learned from Trailblazers” event at Oracle’s City Office. This breakfast briefing was aimed at providing an opportunity for attendees to understand the reality of some real-life journeys of moving an ERP system to Oracle Cloud. The event was well supported, with 40 delegates representing many industries in attendance.

David Hobson, a Business Development Director from Oracle, kicked off proceedings by providing an interesting overview of the current state of the IT marketplace. He set out how Oracle’s offerings meet some of the challenges faced by organisations today and provided examples of customers, both big and not-so-big, who have already made the journey to Oracle Cloud ERP.

David Tyrrell, Finance Manager from RiverStone was next up. RiverStone are part of the global Fairfax group, and deliver insurance and re-insurance services to their customers. David provided the rationale behind his company’s decision to move to Oracle Cloud ERP, which went live earlier this year. He shared some valuable insights into why they chose Oracle, the lessons learned from the implementation project with Claremont, and outlined some of the business benefits accrued from implementing Oracle Cloud ERP.

Patrick Hopkins, Claremont’s ERP Capability Lead, finished off by presenting his “Insider’s Top 10 Tips to a Successful Cloud ERP Implementation”, drawing from his experience of successfully helping customers, including RiverStone, go-live on Oracle Cloud ERP. By popular demand, this is going to be featured in a future blog – watch this space… here’s a sneek preview of tip #1.

The panel of speakers was then put through their paces with a lively Q&A session, which provided attendees the opportunity to delve deeper on a number of topics. The event finished with a networking session that went on past the scheduled end time! Make sure you don’t miss out on our next event by joining our mailing list.
