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

  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. V11.5.10 R12 Reports Will Break • Report integrity a constant, costly challenge

  8. Re-implementing to address configuration imperfections Some data may not migrate Global consolidation Multi-instance environments no longer needed V11.5.10 R12 Reporting from Both 11i and Rel. 12

  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 10 3 8 New General Ledger Accounts Payable Accounts Receivable 58 60 7 9 6 0 Fixed Assets Purchasing

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

  13. R12 R12 Upgrade Protection 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

  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?
