AMOSCA’s on-going commitment to the Oracle EPM & BI community continued with its sponsoring of the recent UKOUG APPS13 Conference.
The event was held at the London Brewery on the 14th-16th October 2013 and was attended by over 1000 delegates. APPS13 brought together, for the first time, delegates from the full range of Oracle application communities;
- Oracle E-Business Suite
- Hyperion & EPM
- Business Intelligence
- Applications Transformation
The conference programme was rich and varied and offered delegates a wide range of educational and informative sessions. The social evenings provided delegates with the opportunity to network with peers and colleagues and the exhibition hall offered a range of Oracle partner services and products for their consideration.
AMOSCA and its clients delivered a number of well-attended presentations including:
- Support & Maintenance of Hyperion Applications: A presentation by Stuart Lothian and Noel Gorvett explaining the process and best practices required to manage HFM applications.
- Infrastructure: Steve Knowles of AMOSCA hosted a panel discussion with co-presenters Phil Noble and Vinesh Unalkat (Infratects), Chris Lang (First Rand) and Louis van den Berg (Anglo American). The discussion touched on several current areas of interest on this topic, including 22.214.171.124/126.96.36.199 migration experiences, virtualization concerns and pitfalls, monitoring and OOD migrations. There was an interesting mix of experience from the panel and contributions and questions from the audience, easily filling the 45-minutes allocated!
