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.

Integrating Financial Management with Project Management using EcoSys Financial Manager

Recently I been working with a company called Ecosys Management to learn and implement one of their products, EcoSys Financial Manager. According to their site: -

EcoSys Financial Manager Architecture EcoSys Financial Manager (FM) is a web based enterprise project financial management system. Project financial management involves all aspects of managing and monitoring the flow of funds from the organization into discrete initiatives, programs, projects, and ongoing operations. These discrete efforts execute and should align to strategic objectives and priorities. The project financial management cycle encompasses long range planning, fiscal period budgeting, forecasting, spending requests, allocations, performance measurement, controls, closeouts, and adjustments.

Large organizations need to be agile and responsive - financial processes and workflows need to flow top down and bottom up. Finance and Accounting needs to reconcile information flowing in both directions: down from executives responsible for strategic planning and up from the people in the field who are close to the work required.

EcoSys FM successfully bridges corporate strategic planning and project financial management for our customers in a varied range of industries. Particularly if you are looking to integrate project management with financial management, EcoSys FM is a proven solution in organizations using Primavera and other enterprise project management systems.

If you’re interested in learning a bit more then download this EcoSys Financial Manager Presentation. If you’re potentially interested in implementing this product in your organisation then contact EcoSys

Oracle Reports using BI Publisher

I’m currently working as an associate consultant with an organisation called BeLife Ltd. We are interested in showing organisations how they can transform their Oracle Reports using BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) and would like to offer a free 1 hour demonstration of this product to anyone that’s interested.

BI Publisher is standard Oracle Financials integrated functionality, but it is only used by a few organisations. Recent feedback suggested that this is because organisations just don’t know how to start with using BI Publisher even though users are eager to experience the benefits. We’d like to show you in an hour how you can get started.

We can show you how to use BI Publisher to generate:

  • Remittance Advices
  • Dunning Letters and Customer Statements
  • General Ledger Reports for downloading direct to Excel, including grouping and formulae (sums, average, maximum, minimums)
  • Management information reports with tables, graphs and conditional formatting.

Whether you’re a super user, end user or implementor if you’re interested in potentially using this reporting tool or know of anyone that may be interested in a demonstration please contact me.
