But Struggle with Execution, According to New Oracle Study

Nearly Half of Executives Say Their Organization is Not at All or Only Somewhat Prepared to Execute a Business Transformation

Today, continual business transformation is crucial for companies to stay ahead of emerging players and maintain a competitive edge.

Many large institutions, however, are struggling with their transformation efforts, according to 'Making the Change: Planning, Executing and Measuring a Successful Business Transformation,' a study from Oracle and Forbes.

Come and learn how Northumbrian Water embraced Oracle's Mobile Framework [39236]
By Grant Ronal

Grant writes, "Northumbrian water are responsible for the water and sewage services of 4.5 million people in the UK, and I was fortunate enough to be engaged with them to understand how they embraced mobile to help their customers and employees. In particular their use of mobile access to Oracle's EBusiness Suite Procurement using Oracle's mobile framework showed a great return in investment by allowing products and parts to be purchased and approved in drastically reduced timescales using mobile.

To help others learn from Northumbrian Water's experience, we are running a live webcast on the 18th November, including interviews with NWs CIO, development and strategy lead, as well as hearing from Oracle's architects who were involved in the project..."

Open World Recap [39034]
By Matthew Haavisto

Matthew Haavisto writes, "Oracle's Open World conference was completed in early October. It was one of the best ever for PeopleSoft. We introduced a lot of new and important features like the new Fluid User Experience and the PeopleSoft Update Manager (and much more). The response from customers was overwhelmingly positive. Our sessions were well attended, and the demo grounds were consistently busy with inquisitive customers.

PeopleSoft offered informative general sessions like Paco Aubrejuan's 'PeopleSoft Strategy and Roadmap - Modern Solutions Delivered with Ease'. In that session, Oracle's Senior Vice President and General Manager of PeopleSoft Development addressed a standing room only crowd, and described how Oracle's continued investment in PeopleSoft is delivering key innovations that address our customer's greatest challenges:..."

Winning the Battle Against Financial Crime in the Era of Real-Time Payments [39035]
By Jenna Danko

Jenna writes, "In 1839, Colonel Jacob Baker, a hero of the American War of Independence, wrote a will leaving an estate to his heirs comprising most of the city of Philadelphia. Years later, William Cameron Morrow Smith formed an association to pool the resources of anyone surnamed 'Baker' who wanted to fight the legal battle to claim their share of the inheritance.

The only problem was that Colonel Baker never existed. Smith was a scam artist and the will was an elaborate hoax. After a 12 year investigation, Smith was arrested in 1936. The Baker Estate Fraud had netted an estimated $25 million from more than 50,000 Bakers, Barkers and even Beckers across North America over a period of decades, making it one of the largest and most elaborate frauds of the early 20th century..."

OTN is making them available virtually, with moderators to help you, in November's Virtual Technology Summit. Because they're virtual, you get to decide whether you want to try them out in the crisp mountain air of your fairytale castle in Germany, the convenience of your Manhattan mansion (who dares to be away from Wall Street for very long these days), or even the regal splendor of Windsor Castle, provided you convince the Queen to let you update her internet..."

Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Solaris Multi-Node Docs [38912]
Installing and Configuring OpenStack in Oracle Solaris 11.2 document

Glynn Foster writes, "For most evaluations, running OpenStack on a single node is ideal. It gives you a chance to understand the different cloud services that make up OpenStack, understand how they are configured, and how to troubleshoot errors that you may come across. We've provided an OpenStack Unified Archive to help make that much easier to do - simply modify your Automated Installer manifests to point at this archive, or use the archive to create an Oracle Solaris Kernel Zone..."
