What are Certus Up To at OOW15?

The Certus Team going to OOW is 5 people including our speaking customer Richard Summerfield, the Group HR Director of JT Global. 

Although I am the 'junior' I am up first. And when I say first I mean first session of the whole event!

Forming Your Future: Upgrade/Migration to Oracle Fusion Applications/Oracle Applications Cloud [UGF3179]
Learn how Oracle Fusion Applications/Oracle Applications Cloud can influence your future plans for ERP and inform you how to prioritize and decide upgrade and migration activities. Should Oracle E-Business Suite users go to the cloud or just stay current with their Oracle E-Business Suite release? Learn what methods are available for migrating to Oracle Cloud for any organization, and how to plan a roadmap for the latest release of Oracle Applications Cloud. This session shares details of the experience. You will learn from the upgrade/migration experience and strategy, cutover plan, testing, and training.

Then not a cloud session but one I am really pleased to be comparing again.

What Does It Take to Make Oracle HCM Cloud Work? The JT Story [CON9059]

The company went on to add performance and was one of the first to go live with Oracle Time and Labor. What did this mean for the business and technically? In this session, JT’s group director of HR and its implementation partner explain the change to the business and the migrations, integrations, configurations, and reporting needed.
