Oracle ADF Task Flow Beyond the 10-Minute Demo
John King, King Training Resources

Oracle’s Application Development Framework (ADF) is an excellent tool for creating robust applications. Part of ADF’s strength is the built-in Model-View-Controller (MVC) design inherited from Java Server Faces (JSF). Using a series of XML files (of course), the flow of ADF Faces applications can be managed by the controller properly. The Task Flow process seems a little unwieldy to experienced UI developers, but the advantages of “not breaking” the Controller are worth it. In this session, you will see how ADF’s Task Flow may be used to quickly and easily manage the flow of an application.

Fulfilling Real-Time Analytics on Oracle BI Applications Platform

 Shiv Bharti, Perficient

If you look under the hood of top-performing companies that consistently beat analyst expectations, you’re likely to find they have invested heavily in analytics and data management infrastructure to enable this real-time, competitive phenomena. If you’ve invested in Oracle BI Applications as a first step and now want to maximize that investment and be able to do real-time analytics with no latency, there are design and modeling steps to help get this started. Shiv Bharti, Perficient BI Practice Director, will host a webinar on this topic. It will cover:

  • What is real-time BI
  • Metadata modeling steps that can be taken to attain real-time analytic requirements, regardless of where the data resides
  • Architectural questions around mitigating the impact on Business Applications
  • Customer case study on a client who had 5,000+ reports on Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer and other legacy reporting tools, and wanted to build an enterprise-class data warehouse: Shiv addresses how the team approached laying out the roadmap and migration plan and architected the future capability for real-time requirements.
  • How Oracle BI Applications can be easily customized to fulfill these real-time reporting requirements by leveraging its architecture

Unify Financial Reporting Processes with Oracle’s Hyperion Tax Provision Solution
Fran Burns and Raj Chaudhury, SC&H Group

The corporate tax provision process often remains a challenge for many corporations. Tax departments struggle to obtain the timely data they need to support their calculations. Most processes are also characterized by an over-reliance on Excel, which creates inefficiencies and increases risk.
A tax provision solution that is more closely aligned and integrated with the broader financial reporting process can make a profound difference in a tax function’s ability to meet its deliverables as part of the close process. Please join SC&H Group for an informative webinar on Oracle’s Hyperion Tax Provision, a first-of-its-kind tax reporting solution that integrates directly with Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and the broader financial consolidation and reporting process as an essential component in closing the loop in the financial close.
During this webinar, experts will reveal critical insights into how Hyperion Tax Provision, together with HFM, can help your organization:

  • Improve efficiency through integration of data with HFM and the source general ledger systems
  • Automate the assignment of temporary and permanent differences within an easy-to-use graphical interface
  • Leverage a comprehensive suite of pre-built tax reports to support the consolidated tax provision, including the tax disclosure footnotes.
  • Align common data sets that are used to support both the financial reporting and tax provision processes
  • Reduce the complexity of the state apportionment data collection and calculation process
  • Improve the visibility and audit trail that are essential to the tax preparation process and compliance

SC&H Group’s Oracle-Hyperion EPM and Corporate Tax consulting professionals deliver proven solutions. Our experts simplify the complex tax provision and financial consolidation/reporting process by effectively implementing Oracle’s Financial Close Suite. This includes HFM, Hyperion Financial Close Management, and Hyperion Tax Provision.

The Tie That Binds: An Introduction to ADF Bindings
Peter Koletzke, Quovera

Connecting data from a data source in user interface components on a webpage was previously a difficult task, but ADF offers an easy way to do it: ADF Bindings. This presentation briefly reviews where ADF Model (ADFm) fits in ADF development and how ADF bindings allow you to quickly connect a user interface page to business services such as ADF Business Components. The presentation provides details and shows examples of how ADF bindings work, how to automatically bind data elements to visual elements, what types of bindings are available, and where binding code appears. It also explains the basics of the expression language used to bind model layer components to view layer components and gives an example of how to manipulate bindings programmatically.
