Thriving during Covid-19: The Importance of Digital Commerce in Today's B2B Landscape
Wednesday, April 14 • 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
Description: B2B Buyer profiles are evolving. The difference between your organization and a competitor may come down to the availability of product ordering via a digital commerce platform, and traditional ordering channels.

The ongoing global pandemic has no doubt accelerated many of these statistics. For B2B organizations, this signifies a fundamental shift in how your customers want to do business. The options are limited: innovate to thrive online or ignore the shift and rely only on "tested and true" methods. Participate to discover a Data-Driven approach to how JD Edwards B2B organizations can innovate and solidify and expand their industry positions into the uncertain future.

Empower Customers with Self-Service: Benefits of a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Integrated Online Portal
Thursday, August 15 • 9:15 AM - 10:00 AM
Description: "Um, can you resend me that invoice? How much credit do we have left again? Did we really place that order yesterday? Oh, I forget about that invoice" Any of these sound familiar? Your customers want to be empowered to answer their own questions and pay their invoices. Unfortunately, without an accessible way of accessing this information, Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) spend much of their precious time answering basic customer questions related to account information, invoices, order details, and taking payment for invoices over the phone. This keeps CSR's from providing value to the customer relationship. In order to free the CSR team and better serve customers, organizations must launch electronic Payment Portals that offer customers access to invoices, historical orders, and account information. Attend to learn how JD Edwards organizations are leveraging the benefits of an Epayments portal, and how to launch one in as little as 60 days.

Think Logically - How to Keep WebLogic Securely Patched for EnterpriseOne
Thursday, August 15 • 2:15 PM - 3:15 PM
Description: This session is based on an experience with a customer that used third party scanning tools to detect that several key WebLogic patches were not in place. Specifically the version they currently had installed was no longer supported by Oracle. This lack of support indicates that Oracle is not obligated to release new security patches. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious agents. The process to upgrade to the latest version of WebLogic will be discussed and clear documentation will be provided to help customers with this complex process. We will discuss making sure customers are on the latest version This upgrade process is not well documented and includes information that may lack clarity. Attend to learn best practices and see a step by step explanation to avoid common pitfalls.
