Last week Cedar was one of the partners exhibiting at the Oracle Modern Business Summit. Naturally our focus was on the HCM Cloud and Simon, Greg – our new Taleo guru – and myself were on hand to demo the HCM and Talent Clouds to customers.
We also benefited from attending some of the sessions – by Oracle staff and end-user thought leaders.
The highlight for me was Stewart Monk’s session on the HR Technology choices facing (more...)

OAUG has invited me to present as part of their upcoming Best of COLLABORATE ’12 Educational Series. I’ll be delivering the R12 Federal Financials Subledger Accounting Teardown presentation via Webinar on Friday, August 10th, starting at 9AM EDT. This presentation is a deep-dive into most of the key SLA concepts that support the R12 Federal Financials SLA accounting engine. My goal is to share what I’ve learned through 1 1/2 years of supporting one of the most complex Federal R12 upgrades to-date, now live for 5+ months.

I didn’t attend, but there was an Oracle Federal Financial Briefing on 17-Apr in Reston where information was shared about some of the upcoming GTAS enhancements and target patch release dates. Personally, besides focusing on our Fed R12.1.3 stabilization efforts on my current gig, I’m working to get smart on some of the basics associated with GTAS, the upcoming 6-digit USSGL standard and new Federal Accounting/System process changes associated.
As soon as we can get our hands on these new GTAS patches, we need to jump on them to start understanding some of the impacts to our (more...)

I’m very pleased to report that I will be able to meet up with ODTUG Kaleidoscope attendees at both the ODTUG Community Service Day (2nd Annual!) and my own scuba dive outing as well. If you can, I’d love for you to attend both events. If you’re not a certified scuba diver, then you can at least participate in the Community Service Day festivities and help out the local area while enjoying some California weather too!
For those certified scuba divers that will (or can) be in the Monterey Bay area on 21-June, I invite you to come diving (more...)
Collaborate 09 starts on Sunday, May 3 (a few days from now!) in Orlando. I’ve been offline for several weeks (more on that later), but will be returning to the world of computers and technology in full force in Orlando. I’ve had a few inquiries about whether or not I’ll be at Collaborate, so I thought I’d resurrect my blog with a post about where I’ll be and some of the highlights I see at Collaborate 09.
First, where I’ll be presenting:
- Monday, 10:45-11:45am, #301, “Avoiding Common RAC Problems”
- Tuesday, 9:45am-12pm, #332, “Installing RAC From The Ground Up”
