Oracle Unified Method (OUM) for Cloud Application Services

Having used many of Oracle’s project management methodologies over the past two decades of implementing it I’m always interested to see what their latest offerings have in store. More recently I’ve been implementing their Fusion applications so have taken a natural interest in Release 6.4 of Oracle Unified Method which has evolved to include an approach for their Cloud Application Services (CAS).

Suzanne Armstrong highlights the key features on the OUM blog as follows

OUM release 6.4 provides support for Application Implementation, Cloud Application Services Implementation, and Software Upgrade projects as well as the complete range of technology projects including Business Intelligence (BI), Enterprise Security, WebCenter, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Application Integration Architecture (AIA), Business Process Management (BPM), Enterprise Integration, and Custom Software. Detailed techniques and tool guidance are provided, including a supplemental guide related to Oracle Tutor and UPK.

This release features:

  • Cloud Home Page – Added to Highlight Cloud Support in OUM
  • CAS OUM (Cloud Application Services OUM) [previously OUM Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach] – Updated Task and Activity/Task Group Identifiers, Updated Terminology
  • Operate Focus Area – Added to Provide Visibility into Services Offered by Oracle Managed Cloud Services (OMCS)
  • Establish Governance Activity [previously Complete Project Management Plan] – Renamed and reframed to place greater emphasis on its main objective, which is to establish project governance by engaging in a dialogue to collaboratively define the processes which will be used to govern and control the project from start to finish. This approach recognizes that the delivery of documentation, while necessary and important, should be the by-product of rather than the driver for conversation.
  • Project Management Plan (PMP) template [previously Project Management Framework] – Developed to streamline the process for documenting project governance. The BT.070 task was renamed to Create Project Management Plan and the guidance was updated. All related tasks that contribute to the PMP were revised to refer to the new PMP template eliminating the prior individual templates. The PMP should be used to document the processes that govern the project.  Once defined, the PMP will remain relatively fixed and only require updates if there are material changes to the governance.
  • Acceptance Certificate [SM.040] Updated and Delivery Note [SM.040] Added - Clarified that acceptance, agreement, and acknowledgment should be secured using one of these templates.  Removed signature boxes / sign-off pages and project manager countersignature from all templates.
  • Risk Management Process, Tasks, and Templates – Streamlined Flow and Clarified Content

Bruce Dehner also has a really good overview presentation which talks about the Cloud Application Services Implementation Approach. It contains a pictorial view of the key activities at each implementation phase which also outlines who is responsible for doing what.

Oracle  OUM Cloud Application Services Approach

The Oracle OUM Partner Knowledge Zone has an abundance of further information and resources. Here you can download OUM collateral, obtain training and certification and view webcasts. Certainly I’m looking forward to making use of the templates and deliverables in my existing and forthcoming implementations.

SURVEY - Reporting from Oracle E-Business Suite

Reporting from Oracle EBS is an important and current issue, so it would be great if you can share your views on what’s good and bad and any tips via the survey that Simon Tomey has set up.

Simon’s going to the UKOUG EBS Financials SIG in May to help with a workshop on this, so it would be tremendous to get your views, so we can have a discussion with some bite. Moreover I think we will all find the results of interest. If you’re not currently working with an organisation, please complete the survey from the perspective of the organisation that you last worked for.   

Take part in the Oracle E-Business Suite Reporting Survey

Batch Invoice Uploads into Oracle Payables

MS Excel to load invoice batches to Oracle Payables! Even Oracle ADI doesn’t do that, in fact few 3rd-party products do. What to do? Do as Kevin Ellis has done, develop your own in-house invoice batch interface. And if that isn’t enough to pique your interest, how about an interface for keeping your chart of accounts current between production legacy and Oracle systems? He has done that too and he has shared all in this comprehensive ORAtips cover story, discussing custom concurrent program and UNIX shell script development, Oracle Applications set-up and end-user considerations.
