10 Information About Your Setup
Configuration Information about your enterprise application User Interfaces Security Flexfields [Interrogated] Financials Business Best Practices Supply Chain Manufacturing Human Resources [Handcrafted] Noetix provides best practice templates/queries based on customer feedback and market experience – handcrafted Metabuilder crawls specific configuration picking up business rules, sets of books, operating units, etc as well as end user interface information (Siebel) and very importantly – Security The crawled metadata populates the handcrafted meta data and drives out Business Views…Reports….and Help File (Navigator) Generated data Business Views [Configuration-specific Views] Reports [Configuration-specific Answers] Documentation [Configuration-specific Help]

What is a Noetix view? Your report Customer Selling Org. Cust. Status Open Quant. Order Quant. Booked Date Order No. Orders Customer No. Oracle database tables Noetix view of the database Order Lines ATO Flag Booked Date Customer Customer No. Item Item Desc. Line Status Open Quant. Order No. Order Quant. Project Quantity Organization Flexfield column in the table [Oracle EBS upgrade] [remaps view] [doesn’t break] MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS_B HZ_CUSTOMERS OE_ORDER_LINES_ALL OE_ORDER_HEADERS_ALL MTL_SYSTEM_ITEMS_TL PA_PROJECTS_ALL PA_TASKS HZ_CUST_ACCOUNTS OE_ORDER_LINES_ALL HZ_PARTIES PA_TASKS ATTRIBUTE1: “Customer Status” Flexfield column in the view Cust. Status “The core value propositions of NoetixViews are 1) they simplify access to data in the Oracle E-Business Suite database tables; 2) they are configuration specific, meaning they automatically pick-up each customer’s site-specific setups of Oracle, i.e., flexfields; 3) they provide upgrade protection, meaning they shield reports, queries and data extraction programs from changes in the structure of the Oracle database.” The Basics of a View Data about Tax Balances, for example, is stored in multiple tables within the Oracle Applications database. These tables and their columns have names that are not user-friendly. To extract data from these tables for a report requires precise knowledge of the table design and skill with SQL in order to assure the results are correct. The NoetixViews are a simplified rendering of this complex table structure. A View is a virtual table that maps the database tables together to create a single table-like object that behaves like a table when queried by SQL. For the person writing a report, their effort is now greatly simplified and less prone to error because they only have a single object to query—the NoetixView—in order to retrieve their data. Upgrade Protection As Oracle continuously updates its software, it is not uncommon that this will include a change to the database structure, meaning that data that once was called one thing and stored in a given table may now have a different column name and be stored in a different table. Any SQL or report that was written against the older structure will fail to work correctly because of these changes. The same goes for the NoetixViews. However, at Noetix we make it our business to understand these changes and our software will reconstruct the same simplified View on top of the new structure. So even though the database changed—and so therefore too our Views change under the covers—the “view” of the data to the report remains consistent. Hence, the report continues to work without having to make changes to account for the database changes. When Oracle changes the database tables Noetix remaps the view Your reports don’t break SW - Updated 12/07

13 NoetixViews Help File SW - Updated 12/07
Noetix groups views by functional area into roles. A set of roles are created for each business group, set of books and operating unit for each module where applicable. The presenter should specify that two help formats are available: MS Windows Help File Format HTML Help File Structure Format The talking points in the callout boxes can be deleted and the presenter can speak to them or animation can be added such that a point is introduced, then disappears. Avoid using screen caps of the help file that show the intro copy - as a visual it’s not informative and of little value to show. If you want a screen cap of a particular help file (HR) then scroll down past the intro to get to the role data and take a screen cap then. SW - Updated 12/07 The first 3-5 characters in a role name, or role “prefix”, is defined by the customer at install time.

14 Immediate Answers to Questions

You may be able to see your 30, 60, 90 days buckets of who is behind on payments, but that doesn’t tell you who is the worst paying customer over time. What Noetix Analytics can do is trend that over a month, many months, or years. You’ll be able to see what customers are poor payers over time. Open Receivables & Payables Operating Income as % of Sales Job Bill Rate Overrides Debookings/ Rebookings PO Lines by Implement Task Quantity Built vs. Quantity Ordered Spend by Period and Vendor Gross Profit (Contribution) Cost Center Organization Relationships Projected COGS Per Order MFG BOM Operation Sequences by Customer Material Transactions By Plant to Ship 29
