Don’t Be Caught Off Guard – Proactive Strategies for Managing Oracle's Monthly Updates

The last thing you want to be surprised by in your busy calendar is an Oracle monthly update that is going into your production environments tomorrow. EEEK!! The best case scenario is you have time the day before to review the notes, the worst case is an update goes into production and the next morning you find something no longer works as you expect it to. Whether you are new to the EPM Cloud or have been around a while, the Oracle monthly update schedule can be overwhelming.

During this presentation I will show you how, by proactively participating in the monthly update cadence, you can strengthen your administration strategy and avoid unexpected surprises from monthly updates. Avoiding that dreaded panicked email from your end users that things aren’t working by taking a few steps that will ultimately save you time down the line.

We will break down the Oracle's monthly update cadence and provide actionable strategies and processes that can be implemented today regardless of the size and complexity of your environment so that you are never left surprised on the second or fourth Monday of the month.
