Looking for a good excuse to go to Vegas (who isn’t)? Collaborate 16 is like recess for overworked Oracle admins, IT managers and DBAs. Of course, you’ll technically still be at work, but it will feel more like a few days of that precious downtime that you never seem to get.
Meet the people who get it.
For the Quest Stat team, Collaborate is one of our favorite events because it gives us a chance to talk to the people we write software for. Our guys have been in your shoes; hence, we get it. You have the responsibility of ensuring your business is maintaining IT governance, limiting risk of security breaches and remaining compliant with regulatory bodies. Add to that the pressure of having to comply with business demands for faster response times — and to do it all cheaper. Yes, we get it.
Put time on your side.
Do you ever get asked to provide the “easy button?” We live in a world that expects instant gratification, having to explain why it might take 30 days to deliver audit documentation doesn’t always go down well. There are good reasons why it may take 30 days, but if you could turn the request around in less than a day, what could you do with the time you win back?
Unlike me at age 16, your business is still growing, and the system that worked last year is being strained today. How do you maintain control, obtain a holistic view and ensure flexibility in the system to grow with your business — all while adding value year after year? Well, there is a better way.
Lastly, and this is something we’re hearing more and more from clients, product change can be all the wrong kinds of disruptive. Upgrades, such as the Oracle EBS 12.2.x, can create unwelcome tasks. Trying to figure out how to handle this type of change and avoid having things stepped on or overwritten is a challenge. This constant churn is exhausting and time consuming.
Well, now is the time to stop, collaborate, and listen. Get yourself to Collaborate 16 and listen to what Quest Stat customers have done to tackle these challenges and more. Visit us at Dell booth #1109 where our very own change management guru and IT Governance professional, Dennis Nelson, will be hosting a session on “Defining a Sound Change Management Process” Wednesday, April 13 from 3 - 4 p.m. Stop by to learn about:
- Application change management best practices
- Basic risk management concepts and terms
- IT General Control Objectives for application change management and how they are audited
We look forward to meeting you in sunny Las Vegas, April 11-13 (Mon - Wed) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center!
