Abstract
:
Oracle Cloud has delivered a consolidation of products (and functions) across a wide range of industries. Look at today’s product feature set and you will see a plethora of capabilities. Cloud Financials product now includes the full suite (GL, AP, AR, FA, CM, and reporting). These products also contain feature sets that were desirable (not available) in the OnPrem product.
Thus, in Cloud, you have management of the closing process with reconciliation, KPI’s and data dashboards that provide better visualization and effective use of data to enable analytical and reporting capability.

With the acquisition of Hyperion about a decade ago, various functionalities supporting FPA and Close activities became part of the Oracle family providing more functions that OnPrem users had previously used external tools to manage – planning and budgeting, close and consolidation, reconciliations and other related capabilities.

With the plethora of products and capabilities what do you as a user get – the simple direct answer is – a lot! As with other products and consolidated tools – the issue becomes an overlap of capabilities across these products.

What are the ideal situations where we can all be on the same page with what to use where, and which product “wins” the possibility to be most effective? There are conflicting discussions and each product has its strengths – but without seeing what capabilities are available for day-to-day activities, it is nearly impossible to make a decision for purchasing one over the other.

Learning Objectives - Join us to understand:
The options and a high-level opinion from Oracle Product Managers to assist you in making an informed decision
The EPM product suite
What the tools from the EPM suite can address
How to use each of these functions effectively in each product suite

Abstract:
The way in which organizations “consume” enterprise software has changed dramatically since the advent of cloud computing and the widespread adoption of SaaS propositions. With its Cloud Applications, Oracle now delivers new updates every quarter. Whether you’re an end-customer or a systems integrator, you have to understand what’s new, what features are delivered enabled, and what features you might want to “turn on”.

Whether you choose to enable anything or not, our experience tells us that you still need to test. Regression testing every quarter will ensure Oracle has not inadvertently introduced bugs or code-changes that will negatively impact on system performance or user experience.

If you’ve chosen to turn on a new feature, you need to consider how that feature is going to impact current processes and procedures. SwifTest for Oracle Cloud Apps significantly reduces the time and effort associated with functional testing. It is the easiest way to set up and execute your testing without the need for specialist test engineers or programmers.

In this e-Learning session, you will hear:
- real-world examples of how to reduce the time and effort of functional testing.
- how test managers can view the progress and results of the test, at a project level.
- how end-to-end processes can be tested by combining scripts.
