Getting Data into Cloud EPM – Data Management Basics in 50 Minutes or Less!

Getting Data into Cloud EPM - Data Management Basics in 50 Minutes or Less! How do financial balances get from your ERP system into FCC or planning or ARC? You’ve probably heard about “data management” and maybe you’ve heard it described as an ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) too, but as an end user you may not be quite sure how it works. Watch this session recording for a short overview of data management to understand how data gets from a file into your application, including coverage of data management components like data files, target application definitions, import formats, locations, data load mappings, data load rules, data load workbench, etc. You'll also have an opportunity to explore the newer “data exchange” interface for data management, which is available as a desktop card in FCC and planning.

Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud End User Experience

Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud End User Experience The number one data related delay in the entire close process is data validation. Most organizations would say that an enormous amount of their close time is spent validating data. What product are you using to reconcile accounts? Are you using Oracle Cloud EPM?  Excel? Blackline? Or the power of humans?  Literally seeing if this number equals that number. You might think you're really good at it! I mean, cavemen were asking at a point in time, “Does this rock look like that rock?” But truthfully, this is not a good use of our higher-level thinking. This is something that today’s robots are really good at and we should let the robots do it! We don't want to be slowing down our process. And quite frankly, humans don't want to do it either. Nobody feels really smart at the end of the day when thinking, “Yeah...I validated all of that stuff.” Please don't go down this path! You really want to be in a situation of letting robots go figure out your data and your reconciliation. Watch this session recording to discover how Oracle Cloud EPM Account Reconciliation addresses the global reconciliation process…
