Unexpected consequences from moving off Dataloader for Data Entry… A fairy tale result!

Event: Connect 2021

Bunnings is Australia and New Zealand’s leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products, and a major supplier to project builders, commercial tradespeople and the housing industry. We currently use Oracle EBS. We have a significant number of customer records which require many profile creations and updates. To do this we used a discoverer report, manipulated the data and used Dataloader with it’s mouse controls to upload the profiles. However, with Discoverer being end dated and Internet Explorer being desupported we were left with no option but to look for an alternative supported solution. In this presentation you will learn how we were able to implement a successful replacement solution that not only met our existing requirements but also exceeded our expectations. As an example, one of the processes used to take 3 hours, now takes 10 minutes.
