Financial and Business Reporting for Oracle E-Business R12 and 11i – 3rd edition

Published By: Key Private Bank     Published Date: May 22, 2018
There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeatability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.

Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Apr 25, 2012
In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

Financial Performance Management in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Environments

Published By: Insight Software     Published Date: May 22, 2018
Different finance departments want different financial solutions.

This paper compares different approaches to these choices that are available for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) environments. The offerings in this space range from simple reporting tools to complete, integrated solutions.
