  5. 5. Agenda  Product Overview ● FDM Classic ● FDM Enterprise Edition (FDMEE) / ERPi    FDMEE Features / Benefits Upgrade Discussion Roadmap
  6. 6. FDM Classic       Data transformation tool for the EPM suite Windows & VBScript based application End user driven with little to no IT involvement Primary mechanism used when loading data to HFM, less of an adoption rate with Essbase / Planning 11.1.2.3 is the terminal release of FDM Classic Support will continue per the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy ● http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-supportapplications-069216.pdf ● 11.1.2.x Extended Support ends April 2018*
  7. 7. FDM Enterprise Edition (FDMEE)    Combination of FDM Classic and ERP Integrator (ERPi) Utilizes Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) to manage the data extraction and transformation process Integrated into Workspace ● Utilizes Jython and VB.Net for scripting  Primarily an end user tool but requires more IT support than FDM Classic
  8. 8. Architecture
  9. 9. FDMEE Data Load Components        Source Systems* Source Accounting Entities* Import Formats Locations Periods Categories Data Load Rules

  12. 12. FDMEE Key Features     Direct integration to various Oracle General Ledger Systems as well as SAP – including BW Non Oracle G/L integration Flat file integration Drill through from EPM systems to general/sub ledger systems ● No data warehouse/staging needed   Metadata integration Budget Data Writeback
  13. 13. Prebuilt Source Systems Integrations System Version EPM Version Oracle eBusiness Suite 11.5.10 cu2 12 12.1.3 11.1.1.3+ 11.1.1.3+ 11.1.2.1+ PeopleSoft Financial Management 9.0 9.1 11.1.1.3+ 11.1.2.1+ PeopleSoft Commitment Control 9.1 11.1.2.2 JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 Requires Tools 9.1 11.1.2.2 Fusion Financials 11.1.2.1.501+ SAP R3 / ECC 4.7 / 6.0 11.1.2.1.501+ SAP BW 7.0 11.1.2.3 PeopleSoft Human Capital Management 9.0 9.1 11.1.2.0+ 11.1.2.3
  14. 14. SAP Integration  Requires BristleCone SAP ERPi adaptor ● http://www.bristleconelabs.com/edel/edel_login.asp  Supports balance extraction from the following modules: ● ● ● ● ● ● Business Warehouse (BW) General Ledger Profit Center Cost Center Vendor Balances Customer Balances
  15. 15. Open Interface Adaptor   ODI Adaptor that pulls data from the AIF_OPEN_INTERFACE table Data needs to be populated in the ODI repository from the source system ● Adaptor does not provide this mechanism ● Need to modify the ODI project* or use another process  30 fields / dimensions, 13 attributes, YTD and Periodic value fields
  16. 16. Flat File Integration   Supports delimited & fixed width flat file formats Includes FDM Classic functionality: ● ● ● ● ● ●  Non-numeric Signage European to US Notation Padding Factoring NZP Expression Stacking Does not require ODI to be installed if only using flat file integration
  17. 17. Drill Through from EPM  Web UI, SmartView, Financial Reports
  18. 18. Drill Through to Source
  19. 19. Metadata Integration  Hierarchy from source system is the hierarchy loaded to the EPM system ● Supports Classic and EPMA enabled applications    FDMEE sets some of the required properties but not all If a property was originally set by FDMEE and you change the property in the EPM application, the property is overridden in the next integration Hierarchies are merged ● FDMEE never deletes hierarchies or members ● Unspecified members/hierarchies are ignored ● In EPMA, can create in Shared library as orphans
  20. 20. Budget Write Back  Budget/Forecast data can be written back from Planning, Essbase ASO or BSO 11.1.2.x ● No available for EPMA enabled ASO  Oracle E-Business Suite or PeopleSoft Enterprise Financial Management ● EBS can post to budget with or without journals  Allocations are not supported
  21. 21. FDMEE Benefits  Workspace Integration ● Multiple browsers ● More Operating Systems*     Lifecycle Management Scalability / Data volumes Security Groups Even more robust mapping
  22. 22. FDMEE Security  Security concept is similar to FDM Classic ● Define user types/profiles ● Apply security to objects to enable user type access    Groups officially supported! Security by location allows groups to be automatically created when a new location is added Security design should be considered during application design
  23. 23. Example Security Design Approach  Define User Type ● Data Loader ● Data Mapper ● Reporting / View Only  Define Security Groups - FDMEE ● FDMEE_Location_DL ● FDMEE_Location_DM ● FDMEE_Location_VO  Assign Security Roles to Groups ● FDMEE_Location_DL  Run Integration, Intermediate 5  Optional: Define Groups of Groups - HSS ● FDMEE_Europe_VO  Provision Users to Security or GOG - HSS
  24. 24. FDMEE Mapping  Same options as FDM Classic: ● Explicit, Between, In, Like ● Same processing order ● ●  Dimensions Map Types Additional option type of Multidimensional ● Similar to Cross Dimensional / varValue mapping ● Far more efficient than FDM Classic ● Supports wildcard maps across multiple dimensions  More wildcarding options ● <x> ● <Blank>  Ability to associate mapping rule to a specific data load rule
  25. 25. Wildcard Types Source Value Source Mapping Target Mapping Result A1425 ?* * 1425 1823USD *??? * 1823 10065_50010 <1> * 10065 10065_50010 <2> * 50010 CC93425_M150 ??<1> * 93425 NULL <BLANK> No Product No Product CC10065_ <BLANK> No Site No Site Astericks (*) is the only supported wildcard in Target Mapping
  26. 26. FDMEE MultiDimensional Maps  Allow 2 or more dimension values to be interrogated to determine the current dimension mapped/target value ● Example: If Account begins with 5 and Cost Center is between 10520 and 10589  Only supports source dimension members ● Utilize mapping scripts to access target members
  27. 27. FDMEE Reports  No more active reports! ● Utilizes BI Publisher   Several key reports migrated to FDMEE Same general process to create report ● Define query ● Export query definition to XML and import into word doc ● Use BI Publisher to generate layout ● Leverage Word functionality like tables, headings ● Associate query to layout/template
  28. 28. Agenda  Product Overview ● FDM Classic ● FDM Enterprise Edition (FDMEE) / ERPi    FDMEE Features / Benefits Upgrade Discussion Roadmap
  29. 29. Upgrade Paths  11.1.2.3 ● All net new FDM customers must use FDMEE, FDM Classic is not available ● Existing customers may upgrade to 11.1.2.3 and utilize FDM Classic, FDMEE or FDMEE with FDM Classic  11.1.2.4 ● All customers must utilize FDMEE, even existing customers ● FDM Classic will continue to be supported through EOL
  30. 30. FDMEE Upgrade/Deployment Considerations       How much scripting does your current application include? Are you integrating with Essbase? Do you have any of the supported source systems in house? How important is historical drill through? How risk adverse is your organization? Do you have or are planning to deploy the Account Reconciliation Manager (ARM)?
  31. 31. Migration Paths
  32. 32. Application Rebuild Considerations   Take the time to evaluate your current mapping Review metadata ● ● ● ●  Locations Import Formats Logic Groups Validation Entities / Rules Test, Test, Test

  38. 38. Jython Example account = fdmRow.getString("ACCOUNT") entity = fdmRow.getString("ENTITY") # Map based on account and dept column values fdmResultMap["ATTR1"] = account + "-" + entity if (account[0:2] == "11" and entity == "01"): fdmResult = "Cash2" fdmResultMap[“AMOUNTX”] = 0
  39. 39. SQL Example Case When Account like ‘11%’ and Entity = ’01’ then ‘Cash2’ End ,AmountX = 0 ,Attr1 = Account || ‘-’ || Entity
