            Faun deHenry, FMT Systems Inc.

      SOX   Sox Best Practices for Oracle Apps - Managing Data Changes
            Christopher Martin, Logical Apps
            Managing changes to application data has become critical to meet internal audit and Sarbanes-Oxley requirements. Oracle Applications provides either a very
            basic audit trail within the forms, or an extremely complex audit tool. More importantly, changes to sensitive data are not actively managed and cannot be
            prevented if a user has access to the data. Learn a best practices approach to automatically enforce and manage data change in the Oracle Applications.
            Effective management of data changes is critical to meet internal audit and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Utilize pre-built controls to monitor, audit and
            manage key data changes. Learn a best practices approach to automatically enforce and manage data change in the Oracle Applications.
            AUDIT any column or table in the Oracle Applications

      GEN   Information Lifecycle Management Strategies for Oracle Applications Data
            David Stevens, Princeton Softech
            Oracle applications databases are growing at an explosive rate, with records retention regulations and laws fueling this growth even further. Many sites are
            looking for strategies that help them manage this data overload in a manner that enhances operations management and supports corporate compliance
            objectives as well.
            Information Lifecycle Management (“ILM”) is the process of managing enterprise data according to its evolving business value. This session describes how
            ILM principles can be applied to your Oracle database environment to reduce the cost of operations and improve the performance and availability of the
            Oracle E-Business Suite. ILM principles can also be extended to speed the applications upgrade process and to streamline testing and deployment of
            customizations, patches, family packs and more.
            Attendees will learn about:
            • Impact of explosive database growth
            • General principles of Information Lifecycle Management (ILM)
            • How ILM can improve database management through the use of archiving policies
            • How ILM can be applied to streamline testing and upgrades
            • How ILM can be deployed for Oracle Applications
      GEN   Princeton Softech will also describe the capabilities required of an enterprise-level solution for ILM and data

            Leo Cai, Mercury
            From Financials to Human Resources to Supply Chain Management, the Oracle E-Business Suite offers a wide range of critical applications that automate
            business processes. For successful application development and deployment, there is a need for rigorous testing and systematic approach for patch
            management. The challenge is how to speed up the testing process and increase accuracy and completeness, without breaking the budget. This session will
            present the best practices for meeting tighter release schedules, testing more thoroughly and reliably, and managing patches smoothly by automating key
            elements of functional testing and change management as well as adopting the methodology of Business Process Testing to achieve even a higher ROI.
      GEN   Oracle Partner Relationship Management, A Case Study
            Dean Burell, Overland Storage Inc / D & T
             As leading high technology manufacturers continue to leverage the global economy and outsource manufacturing functions, the culture and focus of these
            organizations in the United States is changing. As manufacturers shift to this outsource model, their relationships with channel partners are becoming a

      GEN   Agilent Case Study: Optimize Oracle Apps Performance While Lowering Costs
            Kevin Barry, OuterBay
            After deploying Oracle E Business Suite 11i, Agilent Technologies found its single global instance was growing at 90 to 100 GB per month. This data growth
            degraded application performance, reduced application availability, and escalated IT infrastructure costs. Yet, simply purging data was not an option.
            Learn how Agilent met the data growth challenge through aggressive real time archiving. The session discusses traditional solutions, upgrading hardware or
            tuning, which only provided temporary relief; the session shares lessons and impact of the permanent solutions.

      SOX   Segregation of Duties (SOD) and Hierarchical SOD
            Anthony Tarantino, Logical Apps
            Segregation of Duties (SOD) includes the assurance that no one individual has the physical and system access to control all phases of a business process or
            transaction: from authorization to custody, and to record keeping. But most fraud occurs at higher, hierarchical, levels in most organizations. Learn a best
            practices approach to automating the enforcement of SOD and the benefits of building on SOD to automate enforcement at a hierarchical level:
            1. Identify individual conflicts in segregation of duties
            2. Identify the roles and responsibilities of the individuals involved
            3. Identify the reporting relationships of the individuals involved
            4. Identify HSOD conflicts that occur at higher levels within the organization

             Chakravardhan Reddy, Zensar Technologies, Inc.
             You have heard that Linux is cost-effective. You have also heard that combining Linux with Oracles Real Application Clusters (RAC) technology provides you
             with a high performance, high availability solution, but for a lower TCO than traditional Unix platforms. Is this true? If so, how do you approach a Linux
             deployment? What about the differences in architecture, resilience, scalability? The training and learning curve required for it? Does Oracle Corp treat Linux
             as a tier-1 platform? Are updates made available just as quickly? These are questions that we hear most when we talk about our experience with Linux
             deployments. This presentation will address all this and many more! The goal is to take you through a real-life project which achieved a move from Unix to
             Linux, while performing one of the largest global upgrades from Oracle Apps rel 11.0.3 to 11.5.9."

             With the introductions of iStore, iReceivables, iSuppliers, iSupport and other customer facing Oracle Applications modules, security of the eBusiness suite has
             grown increasingly tough. Very little information is available from Oracle and each customer is left to figure out how to secure the internet facing e-Business
             Suite. This paper will cover the many options available to administrators faced with the task of allowing non-company personnel into the e-Business Suite
             while hopefully keeping out those who are unauthorized. Topic will cover from general Oracle Applications Security (and why this is not enough) to the
             specific steps that need to be taken to ensure your business's information is kept secure. Possible system configurations will be explored along with the pro's
             and con's of each. An optimal configuration will be reviewed in detail along with various tips and tricks for securing it. If you are an administrator faced with
             this daunting task you can not afford to miss this presentation."

      GEN    The Seven Sleeping Habits Of Highly Effective IT Organizations
             Susan Dorn, RingMaster Software
             When the company's business systems fail, the business falters. IT organizations shoulder the huge responsibility for keeping these systems and therefore
             the business running. In a world that is constantly changing and introducing unknowns from patches and upgrades, it is difficult to mitigate the risk from
             change so that one can sleep well. This paper borrows from the makers of NyQuil to present seven priciples of effective sleeping habits and adapts it for the
             IT organization.

      OM     Create and Enforce sell-side contracts with Oracle Sales Contracts
             Kevin Attwood, Oracle Corporation
             Automate the creation, maintenance and enforcement of sell-side contracts--whether executed via Quoting or Order Management--with Oracle Sales
             Contracts. Managing contractual agreements and ensuring all business transactions comply with negotiated terms presents significant challenges, particularly
             as business relationships have become more complex. Oracle Sales Contracts allows you to take control of your sales contracting process, from authoring,
             negotiation, and approvals through implementation and evaluation. With Oracle Sales Contracts, contract administrators and sales representatives can quickly
             author best-practice contracts to corporate standards, and automatically drive compliance without the need for expensive integrations or data re-entry.
      MFG    Product Families or Planning Bills: That is the Question?
             Jerry Edwards, JKE Consulting Services
             Recently I had the opportunity to migrate a client from the use of 54 planning bills to product families. This was based on the ability of product families to
             support forecast consumption of both the exploded finished goods saleable item and the parent product family item (2 level forecast consumption). My
             presentation will contrast the features of planning bills and product families. I'll present suggestions of how to maintain forecasts for each parent, be it a
             product family item or a planning bill item. I will present setup requirements and data entry for each. Product family items require a number of additional flow
             manufacturing setups. I will present product family bill examples and include how to verify two-level consumption. I will cover implementation tasks and how
             to integrate product families into forecast explosion and MPS/MRP processing. Attendees will understand the subtle but significant differences between these
             two important planning features.

      MFG    RFID - From Compliance to ROI
             George Bravo, ClearOrbit
             This presentation will examine some of the issues facing companies considering RFID. Companies wishing to deploy RFID within their current
             operations need a solution that minimizes the impact to their current ERP. Otherwise, the cost and potential disruption may make it too
             difficult to implement an RFID pilot program within your time constraints. Given the rapid pace of RFID developments, standards and customer
             requirements, it is critical that you gain practical experience with RFID as soon as possible to maximize the competitive advantage this
             technology can deliver. This presentation will not only define RFID, but it will also look at where it came from, how it works and how it can be
             deployed today.

             Oracle Applications environment delivered with Release 11i, including Release 11.5.10. Release 11i is the biggest and most complex applications release
             ever! There have been ten 11i releases with major changes to tools and technology stack. Each release addresses bug fixes and has added new module
             functionality along with three specific Oracle environments that must be installed for Release 11i – database, applications and web. All environments require
             differing levels of support but each has to be maintained to fully utilize and make the most of the Release 11i Applications. We will discuss the underlying
             architectures and approaches to architecture and installation that make ongoing support more manageable for the Apps DBA.

             utilize and make the most of the Release 11i applications. We will discuss all of these administration and maintenance processes for the Apps DBA and will
             share "real world" recommendations for each.
      TTT    Security and Release 11i
             Randy Giefer
             Terrorism, identity theft, 9/11. It’s no longer a safe world, and corporate data needs to be protected from not only the external bad guys, but also the
             internal ones as well! Many companies believe this won’t happen to them – until it’s too late. There are numerous ways to quickly and easily improve the
             security of your Release 11i environment and protect your valuable data. With minimal effort required to implement, we will provide real world examples of
             how substantial security benefits can be obtained by performing simple configuration tasks such as modifying the default values of select profile settings and
             timeout parameters. Security tips and tricks specific to the Oracle Applications will also be provided to enable administrators to protect their data from "the
             bad guys".
      TTT    Release 11i Apps DBA
             Kevin Dahl
             Oracle DBA or Applications DBA? What's the difference? It's all Oracle, right? Wrong! With the increased complexities and interdependent components of
             the technology stack in Release 11i, the differences between an Oracle DBA and Oracle Applications DBA are even more significant than with past releases.
             The Oracle Applications DBA is a Technology Specialist whose responsibilities span from the operating system and database to the client desktop.
      TTT    Linux and Release 11i
             Kevin Dahl
             Upgrades to 11i often need to take into account newer hardware. As part of a hardware transition, it is a perfect opportunity to migrate from your legacy
             operating system to Linux. This presentation will specifically cover the process of upgrading an Oracle Applications 11.0.3, Solaris 2.8 environment to an
             Oracle E-Business Suite 11.5.9, Red Hat Advanced Server 2.1 environment, however, the process is applicable to 10.7 and 11.0.3 environments running on
             any operating system(s).
      TTT    Release 11i and RAC
             Kevin Dahl
             RAID is the standard in nearly every organization's Oracle Database computing environment. In fact, it’s not a question of should RAID be used, but what
             form of RAID should be chosen. Why has RAID become so pervasive? Answer: it is cost effective and minimizes or eliminates downtime and data loss. RAC
             is now cost effective and minimizes or eliminates downtime due to computer failure. The answer to the question of whether or not to use RAC is nearly the
             same as the answer to the question of whether or not to use RAID.
