One month after Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud Service (FCCS) product was released, we found ourselves deep in the thick of implementing a solution and there was no roadmap to follow. To begin with, we quickly discovered that HFM and FCCS are as similar as two completely dissimilar things could be… as was implementing FCCS vs HFM. We then found out that while there were many prebuilt things that existed in FCCS that didn’t exist in HFM, things we felt surely must exist (specific forms, reports, and calculations) weren’t there at all. How did we work around what was missing? How did we take advantage of what was there? How can you learn from our journey of exploration (so you can be a lot smarter in your journey)? While there’s far more than an hour’s worth of lessons, we’ll make sure we cover the big ones before the session is over.
