This year’s OATUG online sessions are some of the best-case studies we’ve shared, and we’re honored to be amongst such an elite group of Oracle professionals. Please join AST as we present our last two sessions at the OATUG Virtual Forum.  

Monday, April 27 at 10:30 AM EDT – “Moving to the Cloud: What I Wish I Knew Before I Started” 

Cloud is a simple concept but has too many options to count. After years of architecting cloud solutions for over a dozen companies, we will review the highlights of those initiatives, and cover the major categories of cloud, when they make sense, and how companies are using them today.

Tuesday, April 28 at 2:00 PM EDT – “A Case Study of Modernizing Master Data Management at Tampa Airport” 

https://ams.oatug.org/OnlineForum/sessionDetails.aspx?SessionID=11755  

This session will compare and contrast the implementation use cases and best practices for Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud (EDMCS) and Data Relationship Management (DRM). EDMCS started as next-generation solution of DRM, which it already surpasses it many ways.  We will discuss the migration approach, lessons learned, and provide valuable insights to help customers position EDMCS for maximum enterprise value as the product continues to evolve. 

Learn more by attending our sessions, be sure to add them to your schedule for today and tomorrow!  Let’s meet there!

Dear AST Community,

We hope this message finds you well, both mentally and physically. While there is a lot of uncertainty and fear in the world, we want you to feel assured about AST. We remain committed to the safety of our employees, customers and their respective families.  Simultaneously, we are committed to managing the continuity of our business and mitigating risks through innovation, communication, and technology. 

We began communicating guidelines and recommendations related to the virus to AST employees in January.  Since then AST has closed all offices globally, restricted international travel, banned employee gatherings, and instituted self-quarantine restrictions for travelers. We then worked with each customer to determine a plan of action that would ensure the safety of all, while still meeting project dates and milestones.  Our goal is to enable our teams to work remotely and avoid additional travel and exposure. We have been largely successful.  100% of our staff is grounded from air travel until April 1 and are well-equipped to work remotely.  We will continue to evaluate to determine if this travel ban will be extended.

Rather than following a variety of news outlets, we are continuously monitoring the most reliable and up-to-date sources: CDC and WHO.  We are also watching legislation related to health coverage and have developed a contingency plan in the event any employee contracts the virus. 

The AST Leadership Team meets once a day at a minimum to collectively determine our responsive actions, and we are committed to proactively leading our people through the crisis. We focus daily on both the physical and mental health of the entire AST family, as well as business continuity planning.  Ongoing communications will ensure that we continue to dialogue with employees and customers in a meaningful way. 

Thank you for your understanding of the developing situation.  We recognize that some inconveniences may be experienced, but we will do our best to minimize them in our efforts to keep safety top-of-mind while still meeting or exceeding our business obligations.  Rest assured, we will get through this crisis as an organization and we will continue to support and communicate to our customers.

 Sincerely,

 

 

Justin Winter

CEO, AST LLC
