Research shows that legacy ERP 1.0 systems were not designed for usability and insight. More than three quarters of business leaders say their current ERP system doesn’t meet their requirements, let alone future plans 1. These systems lack modern best-practice capabilities needed to compete and grow. To enable today’s data-driven organization, the very foundation from which you are operating needs to be re-established; it needs to be “modernized”.
Oracle’s goal is to help you navigate your own journey to modernization by sharing the knowledge we’ve gained working with many thousands of customers using both legacy and modern ERP systems. To that end, we’ve crafted this handbook outlining the fundamental characteristics that define modern ERP.

Do you need an ATS? Broadly speaking, we’ve found three common scenarios driving the search for a better way to hire:
Growing pains - companies with growing pains are typically looking for some predictability and structure across candidate sourcing and hiring.
Drowning in email and spreadsheets - companies are looking for more efficient ways to manage candidates and collaborate as a team
Outdated software - companies are looking for a modern, efficient approach to deliver on the original promise of an ATS
A modern ATS, chosen with the right criteria, will relieve these common pain points. Take a step back and think about how your recruiting could be improved with the right tool.

"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."

There are lots of different ways to test your website. However, while some tests will help you optimize, others will just take up your time and give nothing useful back in return.
This guide will show you how to build and run the right kind of website test and decode the results to get the answers you need.
If people always knew what they wanted and asked for it, your job would be easy—and boring, which really isn’t your style.

And this guide is a crash-course in how to catch them, decode them, and put them to work.
