One of our clients, City of Lethbridge, has been selected by Microsoft to be featured in an upcoming webinar hosted by the IOUG. We invite you to join. You can register here. The webinar takes place on Wednesday, January 8, 2014 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST.

logo_IOUGIf your organization is running Oracle applications then you won’t want to miss it, especially if you’re also using SharePoint either for Team Sites or as an enterprise intranet portal. The Microsoft SharePoint team and City of Lethbridge, a PeopleSoft and JD Edwards customer, talk about the benefits of connecting Oracle applications with SharePoint to create business-critical solutions that improve business processes, boost team productivity, and increase return-on-investment.

If you’re using SharePoint sporadically through the organization then learn how you can scale your solution to:

  • Surface and share Oracle data through an organization-wide collaboration platform that’s simple to use and manage
  • Improve decision-making and automation while reducing business risk
  • Provide an enterprise-level, unified search experience across all structured and unstructured content siloes.

The City of Lethbridge will share with you how they extended their PeopleSoft system to new users to provide easy, company-wide access to their HR system while delivering a richer user experience.


The webinar is over, but below is a recording.
