Don’t Be a Hacker’s Low Hanging Fruit! Common ERP Security Gaps
Hackers constantly search for easy targets. ERP systems often manage valuable
private data that is only protected by weak controls. Expanding complexity, growing
numbers of users and partners and rapidly emerging exploits make security an
elusive target. In this session, you'll learn about the most common security gaps
found in ERP systems, why those gaps really matter, and how to close them to
make your ERP system less likely to the be the next big victim.

11:00 - 12:00 SESSION #2: Chicken Soup for the QAD Soul: Browses
Just like chicken soup was my grandmother’s answer to whatever ailed you,
browses can fix just about anything in your QAD world. In this session, Scott is
going to show how to build and use browses to address almost everything:
finding information in QAD, building workbenches to show related information,
creating dashboards to highlight useful information, and more! And it all starts
with a simple browse.
Speaker: SCOTT DULECKI - Sungate Solutions

FedEx/UPS/USPS Integration & Shipping Compliance
Rapid deployment of FedEx/UPS/USPS QAD Interface to QAD while following all
QAD data integrity rules. The interface reduces the need to rekey Address, Account
Number, Email Address and other client specified fields from QAD into the Shipping
system. Shipping compliance automatically checks the both Sales Order Maintenance
and Pending Invoice Maintenance, based on the Ship-To Address, restricting the
sale/shipment of restricted items to restricted addresses.

special locations and what happens to the status when inventory is moved. We

QAD Excelerator & Demo
This session will demonstrate how to use QAD’s QXtend Excelerator tool. The
Excelerator tool allows users to query data from the QAD application, import the
data into Microsoft Excel, make changes, and post the changes back to QAD. This
session will provide attendees with a live demo in which we will do some basic
configuration of QXtend, build an Excelerator template, query data, load data,
and build QXtend Business Objects to support Excelerator. While this session will
have a technical focus, functional users will also gain insight on how Excelerator
may be used in their environments.
