How to be Strategic in the Demand Driven World of IT

Monday, April 11 at 1:45pm

Demands are rising faster than budgets can keep up. The same people that communicate tightness in financial resources are the same ones asking for more, more, more.

In a nutshell, you want to be strategic, but the phone keeps ringing and the tickets keep coming. How do you set yourself up for success, where you can take accountability for operational quality but find the time to engage and be more material on the business issues facing the organization?

Datavail’s – Oculus™ – Web Application for Your Oracle EBS Environment

Tuesday, April 12 at 2:15pm

Is your job scheduler running at peak efficiency? Whether internal to Oracle EBS or coming from an external submission system such as AppWorx, one should never assume that your overall concurrent program submission workload is performing as desired. Datavail developed a tool to provide organizations with a logical and in-depth analysis of its recurring concurrent program run-book. Oculus™ is the fully independent and reliable “check-and-balance” toolset which allows one to guarantee that the program submission design is actually achieving its intended goal of keeping the critical programs flowing as needed by both the business and the IT teams.

Developed by Datavail for its enterprise-level clients, the web-based Oculus™ application provides an system-wide view of automated, business, or IT mission-critical Oracle jobs, and can be used to concurrently monitor Production, QA, and Test environments.

With Oculus’ rich set of reporting tools the audience will learn how they can:

  • Monitor job run volumes, run times and completion status in Production, QA, and Test environments
  • Monitor long-run, skipped run, and abort “events” related to the failure of critical scheduled jobs in an enterprise context
  • Find critical concurrent program performance bottlenecks and excessive run times
  • Predict future EBS system growth requirements
