  33. 33. You should standardize on a single corporate Chart of Accounts. LEDGERS best practices & recommendations If you have a global Chart of Accounts for all countries, you may use reporting currencies rather than secondary ledgers. If you need local statutory reporting plus corporate operational reporting, you can use secondary ledgers to support a different COA. If your ledgers share the same COA and Calendar, you can group them into a Ledger Set for shared operations (e.g. close, allocations, reporting). 33 Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
  34. 34. BEFORE setting up hierarchies, consider your requirements for financial reporting, allocations, cross validation rules, revaluations, and chart of accounts mapping. HIERARCHIES best practices & recommendations THEN define hierarchies based on those requirements. Define multiple versions of a hierarchy, and different hierarchies for different purposes by using multiple trees. Hierarchies that are used in financial reporting and allocations must be published to Oracle Essbase, and re-published whenever updates are made to the hierarchy. 34 Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
  35. 35. Use the out-of-the-box job roles to preserve the integrity of duties during upgrades. SECURITY best practices & recommendations Use data roles to control access to ledgers and business units. If you have several companies operating in a single ledger and their operations are shared you may opt to implement fewer business units. If you have several companies operating in a single ledger and their operations are segregated, use multiple business units and segment security rules. 35 Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates.
