Oracle Reboot Camp 1
June 1, 2022, Conference Center
More than 50 attendees discussed ways to improve financial reports. Meeting in groups with Division of Finance and Administration partners, attendees listed numerous ideas and challenges related to financial reports in five key areas: purchasing, accounting, budgeting, project portfolio management, and travel and expenses (Concur). They then looked over the ideas and issues (recorded on sticky notes) and voted on them (green dots!)
Three subjects were especially important to attendees:
- Establishment of a data warehouse.
- Enhancing reports with helpful attributes such as PO numbers, Concur reference numbers and PI reference.
- Training. Since this Reboot Camp, Oracle Guided Learning was launched, giving users how-to guides and tips within the system. DFA also is exploring more how-to videos along with one-on-one instruction and, of course, more Reboot Camps.
