Assess your JDE security - Know where your risks are and understand how to reach best practice (Greg Sosna, Pathlock)
JDE Security is complex and auditors like asking difficult questions. Pathlock’s partnership with Fusion5 enables JDE users in ANZ access to a range of tools to manage security, but the starting point is generally the assessment - a process that looks at your current setup and advises you on a plan to resolve your issues. We’ll also cover how we can help you extend these controls i.e., security and SOD across your entire application estate, including ERP Cloud, MS365, NetSuite and beyond. 
The art of data wrangling (Alan VanNice, ReportsNow)
Do you find it difficult to round up, organize, and make sense of your complex data? We are here to lend a hand! Although it sounds like something from the wild west, data wrangling involves gathering raw data and forming it into meaningful information for analysis and forecasting. Key steps include extraction, assessment, cleaning, analysing, visualisations, and sharing. As the number of data sources continues to increase across all industries, data transformation has never been more important.

Critical elements that must be defined before selecting a middleware tool and planning your integration project (Narelle Carey, Fusion5) 
While there are many middleware platforms on the market, several organisational elements need to be reviewed before a selection can be made that will not only fulfil your current business needs but also support your future state. Many think it’s all about the technology, but your people and your processes are an even larger driver in
making the correct selection.
