1 Operational Reporting for R12 with OBI EE, Cognos, and Business Objects
Mike Hoover Product Specialist Noetix Corporation 1

2 Agenda Release 12 Overview Report Migration
Key Reporting Issues Noetix Solution - The Alternative Q & A

3 R12 Functional Enhancements (Part 1)
Enhanced User Interface Release 12 still relies heavily on Oracle Forms, but the interface has been streamlined and given a cleaner look Single Accounting Engine Shared subledger accounting engine stores accounting entries in subledger tables that are standard across all products creating a single version of the truth Global Financial Management Users can be assigned to multiple operating units and processes, and transactions can span operating units

4 R12 Functional Enhancements (Part 2)
Converged Inventory Module The data model for process manufacturing and discrete manufacturing has been converged in a single model Infrastructure Upgrade Most Release 12 users will upgrade at least to Oracle Database 10g and some components of Oracle Fusion Middleware Accelerated Implementation Oracle accelerators can significantly reduce Release 12 implementation time

5 Overall Goal of Enhancements
The Goal Real time, role-based information with a common data model as a foundation for a single source of truth across the enterprise The Implications Changes in the underlying data management infrastructure can have a significant impact on reporting .

6 Key Reporting Issues More than a dozen changes have an impact on reporting The conversion from “sets of books” to “ledgers” Funds disbursement processing moving from Payables to the new Payments application Tax calculations centralized in the new E-Business Tax application Check and letter processing information now in Oracle BI Publisher tables Bank and supplier information now in the Trading Community Architecture (TCA) Bank setup moving from Receivables to the Cash Management application

7 Reports Will Break Report integrity a constant, costly challenge
V 7

8 Reporting from Both 11i and Rel. 12
Re-implementing to address configuration imperfections Some data may not migrate Global consolidation Multi-instance environments no longer needed V R12

9 How big is the problem?

10 What did it take for Noetix to Upgrade?
Analyze the Oracle R12 documentation per module to identify any significant changes. Functionally test all views in R12 to identify all affected views. Design and implement required functional updates Create new views Obsolete views add/modify columns add/modify profile options

11 What did it take Noetix for our Upgrade?
View Count 58 34 56 Modified 48 14 32 New 10 3 8 General Ledger Accounts Payable Accounts Receivable 58 60 7 9 6 Fixed Assets Purchasing

12 Total Effort ~ 10 person years
Validated and modified nearly 750 views Across 24 modules

13 Upgrade Protection R12 R12 V11.5.10
[ reports written against database tables ] [ reports written against Noetix views ]

14 Subledger Accounting All accounting performed before transfer to the GL User-definable accounting rules At the data level, it’s a big change for all the subledgers, though there is a first generation in 11i Payables “Accounting Events”

15 Tie It All Together Data flows from distributions, thru distribution links and SLA tables, to GL Three key stages Distributions (before accounting applied) SLA (in draft or final form) GL Three key views of the data Distributions only Tie distributions to SLA to GL Tie GL back to distributions

16 Subledger Accounting – Report Migration Needs
How do I reconcile my AP Invoices to the GL Journal Entries and distributions?

17 11i and Release 12 Reports

18 View Changes 11i GL_Je_AP_Inv_Dist_Details

XLA_Events XLA_Event_Classes_TL XLA_Event_Types_TL XLA_Transaction_Entities XLA_Distribution_Links

19 The Impact? Some 11i queries will easily migrate to Rel. 12
Some with no changes at all Some will need table name changes Some 11i queries will need moderate attention Data moved to TCA will require query re-writes Customer correspondence will require re-writes Basic reports can remain the same Some 11i queries won’t migrate 1:1 to Rel. 12 SLA may require new reports, queries & ETL routines

20 How does Noetix address the problem?
