  1. 1. and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications Overview 14th July 2010 V1.0
  2. 2. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications Introduction
  3. 3. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies What are Fusion Applications? Fusion Applications Oracle's integrated suite of next-generation applications, currently in development, combining the best capabilities from Oracle's extensive product portfolio with a rich client user interface and embedded analytics. Existing Applications Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft, Siebel, JD Edwards, etc. will continue with their own upgrade paths. Now to be known as “APPLICATIONS UNLIMITED”
  4. 4. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications General
  5. 5. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications Footprint (v1.0) Financial Management Human Capital Management Sales and Marketing Management Supply Chain Management Project Portfolio Management Procurement Management Governance, Risk and Compliance Not all EBS functionality available in v1.0 e.g. Manufacturing, Call Centre Public Sector Localizations not available in v1.0 Focus on horizontal applications rather than industry solutions
  6. 6. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications Headlines In Fusion, Application Development Framework (ADF) pages replace the Oracle Forms and OA Framework pages User interface has undergone a tremendous change to deliver rich, intuitive, productive and superior user experience Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) as the middleware enables seamless integration within Fusion Suite Best of the breed features from Oracle Suite of Applications like PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Seibel and Hyperion have been embedded in Fusion Business Process centred design Highly configurable – by business users Embedded Business Intelligence Collaboration facility within the application
  7. 7. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications User Interface Changes  Web 2.0 features integrated within applications (RSS Feeds, Presence Detection, On-Line Collaboration, “Social Networking”, Tags)  ‘Contextual Information’ to support transactions can be easily displayed within the transaction.  Embedded Analytics (BI), in task screens at the point at which the information is needed to perform task / make decision. (Transactional based BI based on summary tables in the application.)  Embedded Learning (Help / Tutorials / Video)  UI, and the way in which information is searched and presented is consistent across all applications.  ‘Grid’ presentation of information allows far greater flexibility of manipulation. E.g. Excel like capability to sort / filter / search / display / hide columns / freeze panes etc.  User activity driven by Worklists / Watchlists  No longer called ‘Forms’, now called ‘Pages’.
  8. 8. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  UI layout consistent throughout Fusion Apps TaskRegion Local Region Contextual Global Region Global Region – always present and consistent Local Region – Transactional entry Task Region – Typical tasks that you would perform Contextual Region – Relates to data in Local region if configured
  9. 9. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Personalisation achieved through multiple layers • Organisation • Site • Role • Specific user  Uses Webcenter so maintained through upgrades  JDeveloper based customisation

  13. 13. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications Setup Manager  One-stop planning to deployment tool • Plan, Provision – getting started • Configure – offerings, create packages • Implement – projects • Migrate • Transact • Maintain
  14. 14. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Chart of Accounts (COA) Structure - Fusion has introduced Accounting (COA) Structure to support multiple Chart of Accounts which is a significant enhancement over the Chart of Accounts existing in prior releases of EBS R12 & R11i that supports single Chart of Accounts - Multiple COAs can be created from a single COA structure to support different Accounting and Legal Reporting requirements - Fusion reduces the requirement of several Chart of Accounts Structures
  15. 15. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Business Unit (BU) - BU is a PeopleSoft concept incorporated into Fusion that supports both Enterprise model of BUs and EBS modle of Opeating Units - BU is referred to by the business functions that it performs - BU represents a unit of enterprise that can be consolidated in both a managerial and legal hierarchy  Business Functions - Functions performed by a business unit - BUs are assigned with the required business functions so as to enable the underlying processes within the relevant application modules
  16. 16. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  SetID - SetID is a PeopleSoft concept incorporated into Fusion Suite - Applications need to be setup with reference data before making them available for transactions - In prior releases of EBS R12 & R11i, the extent of sharing reference data is limited as a large extent of reference data needed to be setup for each Operating Unit - Fusion enables sharing a set of reference data across multiple Bus - Customers can create global (common) and specific sets of reference data and indicate the sets of reference data to be used for each BU - Examples of reference data include Payment Terms, Transaction Types, etc.
  17. 17. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Reference Accounts - Reference Account is a GL account associated with a reference object - Reference Accounts feature is introduced in Fusion to enable reference data sharing for SetID enabled reference objects that carry accounts as part of their definition - In prior releases of EBS R12 & R11i, specific accounting information was defined for reference objects like Supplier site, Customer Site etc. - In Fusion, with the introduction of SetID and Reference Accounts feature, reference objects are assigned account category and are not associated with GL accounts
  18. 18. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Date Effectivity - Date Effectivity refers to date based versioning of the logical objects of business - Prior releases of EBS support date based versioning in few applications like Human Resources, E-Business Tax, General Ledger, etc. - In Fusion, date effectivity has been incorporated for a large extent of logical business objects spanning various applications - Its emphasis is to keep track of effective records (versions) rather than maintaining the log of changes by users
  19. 19. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Role Based Access Control (RBAC) - In Fusion, the Oracle User Management (UMX) group in ATG delivers a security infrastructure that will closely follow the standard Role Based Access Control (RBAC) model among other features - In the UMX model, a role will point to a set of functions and separately point to a navigation menu that should be used to access those functions - This navigation menu enables only those functions which have been granted to the user through the assigned roles - This model enables to find a function in the same place even if a specific function has been granted through different roles. An example of this could be the function to ‘Open Period’
  20. 20. Oracle Solution Centre and Together. Free your energies Fusion Applications  Time zone - In prior releases of EBS R12 & R11i, effective date defaults to system date based on the server time zone. - In Fusion, effective date defaults to the system date based on the preferred time zone of the user. This could be Legal Entity time zone in most of the cases. However, this date could be based on a time zone different from LE time zone as Legal Entity is not directly applicable in GL
