EPM Cloud Patching Process: Getting Ready for Monthly Patch into FCCS

Presented by: Oracle_ACE Program_Spade_Pro_rgb.pngMegha Chopra and Oracle_ACE Program_Spade_Pro_rgb.pngMohit Jain, GenPact

One of the benefits of migrating to Oracle Cloud is that patching activity is taken care of by Oracle. Oracle releases a patch containing bug fixes, code optimization, and feature updates. On the first Friday of month – patch will be applied on Test Instance. Typically, production environments are patched on the third Friday of the month. Oracle releases a document on “Cloud Readiness” which provides detailed information about the currently installed service update.

In this webinar, we will provide detailed information about patching activity of EPM Cloud FCCS . We will talk about the different steps which an organization should take before and after applying patch into Test and Prod instance.

By the end of this session attendees will have learned about:
· About Cloud Readiness document
· About Oracle Patch process
· Preparation for applying patches in Test instance.
· Validation of data/metadata into Test instance
· Testing of any new functionality release in this patch
· Apply patch in PROD instance
· Validation of data into Test instance.

Access Denied: Real-World Use Cases for APEX and Real Application Security

 Presented by: ACE Director.jpgJim Czuprynski, Zero Defect Computing

Limiting users’ access to data is still a thorny issue in many Oracle shops. How do we insure only the right people view – much less change! – only the data they’re allowed to? We’ll show you how we solved those issues for a large government agency with hundreds of external users via Real Application Security (RAS), whether they’re using APEX applications or direct-access tools like SQLcl.

Many Oracle shops still rely on cumbersome solutions like complex views, subsets of data housed within materialized views, or outmoded Virtual Private Database (VPD) security features to limit end-user access to the data they’re permitted to view or change. However, there’s a better way: Real Application Security (RAS).

Introduced in Oracle 12cR1, RAS insures that an end user can only see or change the data they’re allowed to, whether they connect to the database via Application Express (APEX) applications or directly via standard Oracle tools like SQL Developer, SQL*Plus, or SQLcl.

Through our real-world experience – a complex implementation for a large federal fisheries agency with hundreds of end users, each governed by tricky rules for their access rights – we’ll show you how to:
- Deploy RAS security policies to limit end-user access while viewing or modifying sensitive data
- Differentiate users connecting indirectly via APEX applications, or directly via SQLcl or SQL Developer
- Configure the RASADM APEX application to monitor and maintain RAS security features

Revenue Planning Using Enterprise FreeForm Applications

Presented by: Oracle_ACE Program_Spade_Pro_rgb.pngVastal Gaonkar, PwC

Revenue modeling is one the most important functions of the FP&A (Financial Planning & Analysis) team in an organization. FreeForm applications in EPM Cloud provide an ability to track revenue metrics at an actionable granularity, thereby providing a seamless metrics planning and reporting solution that integrates and drives revenue planning. The presenter will discuss both target personas (the who) and customer journeys (the how) in FP&A organizations when they use metrics planning to drive revenue planning across industries such as Health Care, High Tech, Manufacturing, and Insurance.

Impactful Forecasting Point of Views for Oracle EPM Cloud 

 Presented by:Oracle_ACE Program_Spade_Pro_rgb.pngVastal Gaonkar, PwC

Often times corporate performance management planning is tasked with carrying the burden of being accurate while in reality policies, procedures and people of the organization drive the accuracy of these very forecasts. Therefore, it becomes important to start with strong foundational forecasting elements such as point of views, design, and product features to create optimal solutions to business challenges.

With varied industry experience, the presenter will discuss when and how to use the EPM Cloud platform innovation and features for the following point of views (POVs):

Projects Planning - when to create a project, and where and what should be done if a project management and accounting technology is part of the solution?

Target planning - when and where to conduct target planning? Should it be a purpose built solution in a plan type or should one use strategic modeling goal seek?

Revenue forecasting - what is the POV to revenue forecasting in today's world?

Workforce planning - is it really necessary to plan by "butts in the seat"? If yes when?

Capital planning - what is the POV on when and how to conduct capital planning across industries?

Auto Predict - when is it appropriate to use in-built predictive modeling features? Non-variable lines of planning make sense, but what other lines in a P&L would make sense?

IPM Insights - when is it beneficial to know whether there are biases and anomalies in your models and data?
