Session ID: 110730

Abstract: While many people talk about their methodology; this presentation provides a unique perspective from someone who has led multiple Cloud implementations. Steve will explore the behavior changes that need to be addressed during the implementation phase; ownership; participation; leadership; and new ways to learn. He will share some of the actions he and his team took; things they wish they did; and the most critical challenges they faced.

Objective 1: Observations from recent Oracle Cloud implementations and insight into effective solutions to address the changes associated with a Cloud implementation.

Objective 2: Steve will discuss selecting and working with implementation partners; phased approach; integrations; appropriate post-go-live support; organization and workforce impacts; behavior changes and ongoing challenges.

Objective 3: Every application implementation project has an inherent portion that involves change; and that is good. Adopting new behaviors can allow for improved efficiencies; less stress (eventually) and many other benefits.
