Claremont is proud to be one of the key sponsors for this year’s UKOUG Applications annual conference and exhibition. The conference, which runs from 7-9 December, finds itself back in the familiar surroundings of the International Convention Centre (ICC) in central Birmingham. It promises to be a great event, with attendance levels predicted to be up by over 50% compared to last year.

Journey to The Cloud

Since last year’s conference we’ve seen a shift. Having seen early adopters make the move, more organisations have started their journey to migrate their Oracle Applications to the Cloud. In that time we’ve been talking with some of our own clients, who have been seeking advice on what it would mean for them. Is it the right thing to do? Why should they move to the cloud? What does it mean in practice?

Some have seen the benefits and have embarked on implementation projects to take them to the Cloud. The time is not right for others. We recently conducted a survey that reached out to organisations in the Oracle economy to find out about their plans for and perceptions of the Cloud. Look out for some interesting and insightful findings from this survey that will be published during the conference.

Maximise Your Oracle Investment

We’ve seen another subset of customers looking to maximise their existing Oracle investment by optimising their use of Oracle E-Business. A number of customers have realised some significant business benefits by implementing the Applaud Self Service. This delivers a modern and fresh new user interface to employees and managers, which is complemented by native mobile and tablet applications.

Payroll Round Table – Join Us!

We’ve also helped Payroll Managers to gain greater insight into their Payroll data with our BI tool: Payroll Control Centre. Join us for a round table discussion at the conference, on Tuesday afternoon, to explore these advancements in BI and Payroll. Hosted by Adrian Biddulph, discussions will focus on practical examples of how Payroll Control Centre has solved real business problems with smart technology.
