The Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) is a favorite of SkyBridge. It’s an opportunity to connect with fellow industry professionals, contribute to the knowledge base, and learn the types of projects others are doing with Oracle.

During the most recent Atlanta OAUG meeting, four presentations were given, focused around Oracle EBS.

  1. How to Achieve a 360° Month-End Close-Out Process in Excel
  2. Utilizing Oracle Maintenance Mobile App in Today’s Workplace – Real Work, Real Tasks – Done Quickly and Simply
  3. Survival Tips for Upgrade to E-Business Suite Version 12.2
  4. How Arby’s Restructured Their GL Chart Of Account Without Re-Implementing EBS: You Can Too

Excel4apps featured Excel add-ons that integration with Oracle to assist month end accounting. This included several module views that improve employee efficiency. In addition, enablement around the mobile workforce was highlighted, including how mobile employees document resource and material management, work orders, and barcode integrations. This included functionality while an online signal was present and how workers can function and sync later.

Two notable EBS upgrades were featured. One by Arby’s as presented by Matt Powell, CPA and the other by Brian DeFrates and Julio Lois of Southern Company. Southern Company went from EBS 11x to 12.2 and outlined the workflows and phased approached.
