      Hi,

      Can you please elaborate the steps to extend or customize a seeded BIP report. In many cases, even after we copy the BIP model to custom folder,  we were not able to edit the BIP model query with parameters. It was showing error's like table or view does not exists and changes does not get saved. Is there any step that we are missing other than customize option from xmlpserver.

       

      Thanks,

      Prem

      Hello,

      Is there a way to customize the Maintenance Cloud in terms of:

      1- Adding custom fields along with scripts and/or workflow object definitions?

      2- Modifying the flow of the work order so that once a work order is created, it is assigned to another user for approval or rejection?

      • Sivakumar Jayaraman

        Currently only the asset object is enabled for Application compose. You can use this object to add fields/ buttons with script. You can use process composer to add workflow to this object.

         

        You cannot modify the work order object as it is not enabled for application composer.

      Hello,

      Hope this session is more specific to SCM Business Intelligence/Reporting, It will be good if you can cover some of the topics on high level,

      Roadmap for Migrating OBIEE/BI Apps customer moving from EBS to Fusion cloud.

      What is available in Oracle Fusion OTBI/BI Publisher vs BI Apps

      Creating custom OTBI Subject Area's etc...

        Hi Senthil

        Please see below responses to the questions..

        1. Roadmap for Migrating OBIEE/BI Apps customer moving from EBS to Fusion cloud.
        Customers are encouraged to evaluate various Analytics products basis the current installed products and / or Destination desired
        The link below describes Analytics products offered.

        https://www.oracle.com/solutions/business-analytics/products.html

        As the customer migrates to ERP Cloud, they should evaluate Oracle Analytics for Applications for future cloud centric analytics needs. Please note, there is no upgrade path from BI Apps specifically to 'Oracle Analytics for Applications'. Almost all the customers take ERP / SCM Cloud implementations as an opportunity to transform their business processes and adopt a best-practice driven out of box solution. Oracle Analytics for Fusion implementations are not an upgrade from BI Apps but an opportunity to get a fresh start with a new SaaS product.

        2. What is available in Oracle Fusion OTBI/BI Publisher vs BI Apps
        OTBI provides for embedded transactional reporting capabilities which should give customers a good start on the transaction reporting needs on data sourced from ERP/SCM Cloud. However, if you want to expand to more advanced use cases including 3rd party data, historical trends across multiple years then customer should evaluate other Analytics products
        3. Creating custom OTBI Subject Area's etc...
        Custom OTBI subject areas are not supported.

        Regards

        Hemant

      Hi Hemant,

      Thanks for sharing this information, I attended this session and this topic was not covered.

      The problem statement is exactly the lines you have highlighted below,

      "Almost all the customers take ERP / SCM Cloud implementations as an opportunity to transform their business processes and adopt a best-practice driven out of box solution. Oracle Analytics for Fusion implementations are not an upgrade from BI Apps but an opportunity to get a fresh start with a new SaaS product."

      Not having a solid migration plan/approach is a big gap. This provides an option for considering other solutions with different tool set's. Even in one of our recent proactive pitch for Oracle Fusion cloud migration for a customer who is on currently on EBS/OBIEE, they suggested to cover only the Fusion cloud ERP/SCM part as they have other plans for BI (non-oracle Product)

      Also there is no clear roadmap for customers who are migrating from EBS to SaaS and have invested on Oracle Exalytics for their BI reporting on EBS.
