Whatever your reason to explore a jump from on-premises to a cloud environment, peer advice is always helpful in making the transition a successful one. Higher education IT leaders talked about their experience during an Oracle-sponsored cloud panel at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference in Chicago.

Each spoke to their reasons for moving to the cloud. For Borre Ulrichsen, CIO at Gonzaga University, the university’s administrative software platform required a major upgrade. “We really had to upgrade more resources and were not looking at making major investments in our on-prem data center,” Ulrichsen said. “The result was a shift from on-prem to an on-demand license strategy.”

Peter Murray, CIO and vice president for IT at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, said their university recognized that the latest releases of some of their tools were not compatible with their existing platform. “We decided to pursue a new financial system; we wanted something completely transformative and state-of-the-art.” 

In researching options, Murray says they saw an opportunity to move to the cloud.

“The cost to maintain on-prem was getting very expensive and time-consuming,” said Cheri Polenske, assistant vice president of enterprise services at the University of Nebraska

Polenske’s student information system was the impetus for researching cloud, as enrollment was creeping up and the cost of additional licenses was becoming a factor, in addition to hardware that was reaching end of life.

“We were looking for a way to control costs,” she said.

IT leaders’ biggest piece of advice from their collective experience is to pay attention to all aspects of change management when transitioning to the cloud. This includes:

  • Cost/benefit analysis: Murray strongly recommended a review of a cloud transition to be able to realize potential benefits. “Do a thorough, comprehensive ROI. We took about four months to go through this exercise, and we found we were going to save 34 percent over 10 years versus on-prem.”
  • Communication: Transparency was key, Polenske said. “We had open dialogue between IT staff and teams to make sure we were heading in the right direction.”
  • Leadership buy-in: “We started with senior leaders,” said Murray, who described building what he called a change network comprised of an advisory group and change champions. “You have to make sure everyone on the project team is going to move forward in lockstep.”
  • Education: Some reluctance to make a move to the cloud may come from within the IT department. Panelists found they were struggling with the change in IT because of how job descriptions would shift for new people coming in. It became important to educate staff about the opportunity for training and skill development with a move to the cloud.

Each panelist described unexpected benefits from the transitions, including a more transparent window into the genuine costs around managing data, the ability to introduce the IT team to the most up-to-date technologies, and a culture shift across campus toward a more collaborative campus community.

“[The transition] really is a community effort,” said Borre. “Previously, we would do a lot of work in IT, and then spring it on everyone. Now, we schedule testing, we bring in partners on campus earlier, and they know when changes are coming. That cultural change, beyond traditional IT, activated our community to build a model of more collaboration.”

Killexams : Next hit with HMRC inquiry after payroll blunders

Next celebrated its 40th birthday in style last month. The retailer’s feted boss, Lord (Simon) Wolfson, mingled with head-office staff and store managers in a carnival atmosphere at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre. Guests loaded up at the free bar and danced the night away. Others enjoyed the dodgems and the waltzers. Some just sat back in a deckchair with an ice cream.

A casual observer would never have guessed it, but behind the scenes, the mood among some of Next’s 43,000 workers has, in reality, turned toxic.

The tens of thousands of people working in Next’s stores and warehouses — who were not invited to join last month’s festivities — have borne the brunt of a disastrous implementation of a new Oracle payroll system.

Workers on the minimum wage have been significantly underpaid, while others are being overpaid, causing some to lose access to their benefits amid the worst squeeze on living standards for 60 years.

As serious as the current situation is, though, the issues at Next appear to run much deeper.

In this investigation, we reveal that:

● HM Revenue & Customs is investigating whether Next is paying workers the national minimum wage.

Related Articles

● Next inadvertently over-claimed money from the coronavirus job retention scheme without giving 4,000 members of staff the furlough payments that they were due.

● HMRC has reclassified Next from a low-risk taxpayer to a medium-risk taxpayer.

These revelations appear to stand at odds with the widely held perception of Next as a well-oiled machine. Under Wolfson, the fashion chain has defied gravity on the high street, pumping out record pre-tax profits of £823 million last year. And last week, it raised its profit forecast for this year by £10 million to £860 million after shoppers flocked back to stores.

Meanwhile, workers have been suffering. “More than a dozen people in my store didn’t get paid right last month,” said one shop-floor employee. “One girl was overpaid, so her benefits were stopped and she had to borrow money off her parents to pay her bills and feed her young son. Another girl literally didn’t have the money to pay for her bus fare to work. Morale is awful — I have never known it to be as bad as this.”

The hardships inflicted on staff pose difficult questions for finance director Amanda James and operations director Richard Papp, who oversaw the roll-out of the Oracle software system.

Wolfson, 54, is a master of detail who immerses himself so deeply in the business that he personally signs off requests for additional headcount in shops and warehouses. The Conservative life peer meticulously managed the leases on Next’s portfolio of 477 stores to ensure it had the flexibility to close poor performers as trade drifted online. And he decisively capitalised on Next’s advantages as a one-time catalogue retailer by establishing a service to run other retailers’ online operations. Any investors who bought Next shares 21 years ago, when Wolfson took over, would now be sitting on a near 2,000 per cent return.

Prudence is the watchword at Next. Wolfson prefers to utilise its in-house expertise rather than rely on consultants or third-party software providers. The retailer has largely designed its own systems, developed and supported by a vast IT department of about 1,000 workers. The attempt to integrate those systems with Oracle’s has been at the heart of the operational meltdown.

HMRC requires companies to use a licensed, third-party payroll provider. Next had to find a new one after learning that its previous software would be discontinued this year. In 2018, it is said to have signed a five-year licence with Oracle, and has paid the software giant more than £10 million to date. Oracle did not respond to a request for comment for this article.

The implementation of the payroll system has lasted the best part of four years. As the deadline neared, a team of more than 50 people worked round the clock to try to ensure the system was ready, with some workers putting in dozens of hours of overtime at double pay for several weeks.

Staff have complained of not being paid, being paid too much, or having deductions taken for paid-off student loans

Next even dished out an “implementation bonus” — a reward for failure that irritated some head-office staff.

The retailer blamed the botched implementation on the pandemic, which led Next to divert key team members to establishing its furlough payments system. It also acknowledged that it had tried to replicate too much of the functionality from its original payroll system in too tight a timeframe, meaning that Next went live with an untested system.

One source close to the failings, though, said that the company’s insularity and the attitude that “Next knows best” was at the root of the problems — a characterisation the company rejected.

Either way, the consequences have been dire. The company had expected that the switchover would prevent it from being able to hire staff for its retail business for two weeks — but it was actually unable to hire anybody for six weeks. Some employees who had paid off student loans years before noticed deductions suddenly restarting. Meanwhile, pension contributions were deducted from staff pay packets without being invested — although Next said it was confident that no workers would ultimately lose out from these mistakes.

The disruption, cruelly, has been most severe for Next’s shop-floor workers, who are paid the minimum wage of £9.50 an hour. The switchover to the Oracle system in February resulted in thousands of staff being paid incorrectly. One member of the retail workforce said that despite not being paid what they were owed, staff were having to work harder because they had been told to re-label thousands of garments with higher prices.

“Some people just weren’t being paid for months. Affected staff have been calling up crying and, in the worst cases, they have even been suicidal,” said one head-office insider. Another source said that workers in the payroll department “just looked broken”.

Next said this was not a fair reflection of the general interactions. “We acknowledge the frustration many colleagues have felt and reiterate our sincere apologies. We have made huge progress and continue to work very hard to resolve the situation,” a spokesman said.

The retailer’s response was to write another system to catch and correct errors produced by the payroll software before money is paid to staff. Despite that, 219 retail workers were underpaid in Next’s latest weekly payroll cycle and a greater number are thought to be getting overpaid, with the risk of benefits being withdrawn. The company said all underpayments were now being rectified within five working days and that improvements in the process were dramatically reducing error rates.

Like many retailers, there is a chasm between the earnings of workers and Next’s top brass. Last year, Wolfson was paid £4.4 million, equivalent to 245 times the average Next employee. Papp and James earned £2.2 million each.

“I was underpaid by more than £500 … I have just given that up,” one warehouse worker said. “Now the system is telling universal credit I have not been to work, so I received almost £800 [in benefits] that I wasn’t due. I have been told that I have to go and look for a job with the job centre, but I am working damned hard because we are that short-staffed. It is demoralising.”

Next said it believed there were no outstanding underpayment queries among warehouse workers that were more than two weeks old.

Jo Mackie, leader of the employment practice at law firm Slater and Gordon, said that, theoretically, HMRC can punish companies if software issues lead to staff being underpaid — although the liability would be subject to the terms of the contract between the employer and the software provider. In 2013, National Grid agreed to pay £4 million to compensate more than 8,000 American workers after the botched implementation of a SAP payroll system meant it failed to pay overtime to workers repairing damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Wolfson, though, has other problems to worry about. In May, HMRC wrote to the directors of Next advising them that it had opened an investigation into whether the retailer was paying its workers the “correct rate” of national minimum wage.

The inquiry is understood to have been triggered by a complaint from a member of Next’s retail workforce. HMRC has informed Next that the investigation will encompass its entire corporate structure, including any subsidiary companies. HMRC declined to comment.

“In general terms, it is not uncommon for HMRC to audit large employers and their adherence to national minimum wage regulations,” a Next spokesman said.

If the taxman finds companies guilty of underpaying staff, it can force them to make good the underpayment and levy penalties of up to 200 per cent of the arrears.

HMRC also reclassified Next from a low-risk taxpayer to a medium-risk taxpayer. The change came after the company admitted that it had over-claimed £4.3 million of furlough cash, which it repaid in January. After making what was intended to be a final disclosure, Next is said to have realised it had over-claimed an additional £3 million, which has since been repaid.

Additionally, the retailer discovered it had underpaid roughly £2 million of furlough cash to about 4,000 employees. It has repaid all current employees who were out of pocket, but admitted that about 900 former employees, who have been contacted, have yet to be repaid. Next attributed the mistakes to the regular amendments of the Covid scheme, adding that they were a challenge for all companies to deal with. The company said it had a “clear path” to return to a low risk rating with HMRC.

Still, the litany of recent mis-steps will shock Wolfson’s acolytes in the City. Just like Next’s staff, they will be hoping these are no more than a blip.

Killexams : Java 7 SE reaches a dead end, Java 8 becomes the norm

Java 7 certainly had its time, but it’s time to prepare for the future. Oracle has been trying to implement Java 8 and 11 and make it the norm, however, there are always developers that keep using Java 7, and 8. Therefore, the company is ceasing its support for the old version. The company has announced that Java 7 will reach the end of its life cycle. So, the company will cease the extended support for this particular version.

According to the official statement, when the life cycle is over, the product will enter continuous support mode. No further patch updates will be provided, no bug fixes, security fixes, or feature implementation, and only limited support will be provided. Furthermore, the company is ceasing its support for Java SE 7. Therefore, some older versions of various Oracle Fusion Middleware products will no longer provide certified JDKs.

Java

“Community support will end when Java 7 reaches the end of service on July 29, 2022. All applications running on 7 will continue to run, but 7 itself will not receive updates or security patches. To minimize risk and potential security vulnerabilities, upgrade your applications to 8 or 11 depending on your workload requirements.

The canonical guide to follow is the Oracle JDK Migration Guide. The migration guide addresses all Java specification incompatibilities and JDK implementation incompatibilities. Most of these incompatibilities are edge cases. You should make an investigation when a warning or error occurs.”

“Most applications should run on 8 without modification. The first thing to try is running on 8 without recompiling the code. The point of just executing is to see what warnings and errors are coming from the execution. This approach gets an application to run faster on 8 for the least amount of effort required.”

Oracle is recommending its users upgrade to a new Java SE version that has support. Currently, the company is offering support for Java SE 8 and Java SE 11. Users opting for these versions will get full support for their Java runtime.

It’s a common behavior for companies to cease existing services to focus on new ones. Amazon, for example, is shutting down Amazon Cloud Drive to focus on Amazon Photos.  Google last year, changed the Google Photos policies.

Killexams : MIT moves to Rimini Street for Oracle support
Daniel Benad (Rimini Street)

Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) has moved to Rimini Street for its Oracle support and away from the vendor, citing costly upgrades and the need for ongoing stability.

This will enable MIT to maintain its current stable version of Oracle for its student management and finance systems for up to fifteen years without requiring an upgrade, according to the third-party services provider.

MIT’s applications have been flagged as reaching end of life in 2023, with Rimini Street claiming the Institute would face “costly” upgrades if it was to continue its support through the vendor.

“We were in a bind. We knew the software vendor’s support for each Oracle application would cease next year, but we wanted to continue using our current applications,” said Gerald Masters, head of technology at MIT.

“Our current Oracle version was stable and there was no reason for us to move off it other than Oracle saying ‘we had to’.”
