Oracle Fusion HCM Release 12 ( New Features)

DISCLAIMER: Opinions my own

Although Oracle Fusion HCM Release 12 is not released officially. But I guess the same is available in limited release ( controlled availability) for specific customers.

But still until we have the Release 12 available for general use we may still go through the RCD ( release content document) and understand what are the new features which are going to be available.

Hope this helps....

An How to Article About Creating a Multilingual Report in Oracle Fusion Cloud Application

Disclaimer: Opinions my own

In a typical ERP Implementation for a large Multinational Firm it is a very common need to have multilingual reports. Say for example Employee Basic Details Report which holds information like an individual’s First Name, Last Name, Department, Employee Number etc and for the ease of use the need could be to have the flexibility to generate the same report in multiple languages like English, French, Spanish, Chinese.

These multilingual report generation till sometime back were considered to be a complex activity and required multiple RTF layout designs each specific for one language.

So there used to be multiple RTFs. But Oracle Fusion Applications gives the flexibility to have a single template which can get incorporated with multiple language translated files (xlf) which enables us to create reports in multiple languages from a single base one.

Logical and Relational Data Model Diagrams for Fusion Applications

DISCLAIMER: Opinions my own

There was a great deal of concern among Technical Consultants regarding the Oracle SaaS based solution ( Fusion Cloud to be specific) where-in worry was to about integration between systems , generating custom reports and other technical areas which requires a detail level of DB information table names, fields, columns data-types, primary key foreign key relationships.

A lot of such questions were answered by OER ( Oracle Enterprise Repository) but the same has bee deprecated and replaced with new site :

http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/docs/HTML/oer-redirect.html

But the site doesnt list the Logical ER Diagram.

However, Fusion Applications Developer Teams have given us the much needed info via their blog post which can be found at:

Data Model Diagrams for Fusion Application

Probably one of the link which needs to be handy with every Fusion Application Technical Consultant.

Hope this helps..........

Sangam 16: An opportunity to meet and learn from the best technologists,developers,architects

Disclaimer: Opinions my own




Sangam 2016 is round the corner (11th and 12th Nov 2016) and gives an opportunity for all technologists, developers, DBAs, Functional Users and even Business Aanalysts to try and understand not only how an application works but also about the technology, the user experience.


A place where you may ask questions to those who have build oracle applications which some of us might be working on for years. Having said so don't think that this conference is only for those who know about it, but rather also for those who are complete newbies and are trying to learn the tips and tricks of the game.


And above all you meet great leaders , developers and other enthusiasts who share their thoughts and help you with answers to some of your toughest problems encountered in your day to day work


Add to it this year there is a Oracle's Usability and Interface Product Testing Lab who would like to take user feedbacks then and there and would consider to implement the same in future release ( provided you have a logical argument and a strong business case).


Lot of knowledge be it for Database Track, Developer , Solution Architects, Business Users... basically if you are either associated with any of the Oracle's Products or even eager to learn about it , then this is the place to be.


Hope to see you all there.
