Developing a Council ‘Cloud First’ Enterprise Data and Analytic Strategy

Many Councils are adopting a ‘Cloud First’ strategy, which by its very nature allows for a gradual migration of processes from on-premise to the Cloud.  Some are leading with a migration to Cloud ERP/HCM before considering the analytic strategy, whilst others are moving on-premise Analytics to Cloud as the initial step before looking at moving their ERP/HCM systems.  

Please join us for an interactive day in the company of colleagues from other Councils as we consider both of these approaches and how your Council can best develop an enterprise analytic strategy.

Registration with light refreshments available from 10.00am with the event to start at 10.30am.  Networking lunch provided, along with free car parking at Oracle offices in Solihull.


You will learn :

  • The key success factors and architectures for a complete Cloud data and analytical strategy.
  • How Oracle Analytics Cloud coupled with an Autonomous Warehouse augments the capability of Oracle’s Cloud ERP/HCM to become the strategic bedrock of a scalable enterprise analytic platform for all Council analytics.
  • The benefits of ( and how to ) move from an on-premise BI solution to a flexible, modern Cloud environment with advanced mobile capabilities.
  • How the technological advances inherent within Oracle Analytics Cloud, such as Machine Learning and Data Visualisation, are playing an increasingly integral part in providing accurate, self-service analytics to both executive and end users.

With live demonstrations all geared to Council processes this promises to be an informative and interactive session for all Councils looking to define a cloud based analytic strategy. There is also an optional session on the Flexible Consumption Choices that Oracle offer on Universal Credits (Pay As You Go and Monthly Flex).

Please RSVP early as places are limited and demand is certain to be high.
