    Calling all EPM Cloud Financial Consolidation and Close customers
    Summary:
    Special Strategic Customer-ONLY Forum @ Kscope 2019 - Interested?
    Content:

    The Oracle Enterprise Performance Management development team values our relationship with our strategic customers, and we always look forward to opportunities to engage with a broader group on a periodic basis.  One of the best opportunities to do this is by hosting EPM strategic customer forums at an event that draws customers across all industries and geographies.  With this in mind, we would like to formally invite you to the EPM Cloud Financial Close Strategic Customer Forum on Tuesday, June 25th at this year’s Kscope user conference in Seattle, WA.  The meeting will start promptly at 9:00 AM and run for a couple of hours.    Breakfast will be provided.

    Some of the key EPM cloud business processes for which we will look for your guidance and feedback during the meeting include:

    1. Financial Consolidation and Close
    2. Account Reconciliation
    3. Narratives, Reporting, Analytics , data management and other topics

    While you don’t need to be a registered conference attendee to participate in the advisory forum, we do encourage you to consider registering to take advantage of the tremendous content being offered, including the EPM Sunday Symposium.  More information can be found here: KScope19.  As a third-party conference, we do not have the ability to waive conference fees if you wish to attend the full conference.  However, there are many discount codes available through our partners, and/or check here if this applies to you.

    And now, the fine print….Please note that we have limited space available for the advisory forums and we are nearly full. So if you are interested, please do not delay in contacting  annette.barbieri@oracle.com directly. 

     As always, thank you for your continued support of Oracle Enterprise Performance Management, and we hope to see you in Seattle.

    Data Export to File option in Data Management for FCCS
    Content:

    Hi All,

    As per the June release there is an additional 'Data Export to File' option in Data Management for FCCS. Is anyone aware if this option allows to import data from a source file and export to a file or does it only allow to import data from an EPM application and export to file?

    Thanks and Regards,

    Valid Intersection Configuration
    Topic posted October 18, 2019 by Steven Getze, CMARed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged Automation, Data Integration, Dimensions, Income Statement, Insertion Points, Reports, Smart View in Enterprise Performance Mgmt > Financial Consolidation and Close public
    Title:
    Valid Intersection Configuration
    Summary:
    Has anyone successfully developed?
    Content:

    In my Test application I have configured our full set of specific GL Account & Department Valid Intersections (each "rule" is composed of the account, its associated "valid" department combinations, plus the years of 2018 thru 2021).  This is necessary, because we occasionally see invalid combinations in entity loads but have no way to identify them; the presence of them causes FCCS's Net Income to be incorrect.  Now I am testing and viewing available reporting.   As a test, I loaded an entity load file to August 2019 via Data Management that includes an invalid account/department combination, and expect to see this invalid combination when I run an Invalid Intersection report.  But, I do not, even when I create the report that include the specific "invalid" intersection.   Additionally, when I run an "open" report with no optional dimensions, I only get data for FY2015.   This makes no sense, since I identify only FY18 thru FY21 within the rules .   

    I suspect my configuration is flawed - it seems straightforward so I have no idea what is flawed.   I can find nothing in Oracle publications to assist me. 

    Has anyone successfully developed Valid Intersections in FCCS who can tell me what I'm doing wrong?   I have attached an excel file that shows the invalid combo in an adhoc plus screenshots of my configuration.   I appreciate any guidance.

    Basic Balance Sheet hierarchy and alternate1
    Topic posted October 16, 2019 by Pamela Stone, tagged Balance Sheet, Dimensions, Income Statement in Enterprise Performance Mgmt > Financial Consolidation and Close public
    Title:
    Basic Balance Sheet hierarchy and alternate
    Summary:
    Placement of alternate income statement accounts using Basic Balance Sheet hierarchy
    Content:

    Hello,

    Using the new Basic Balance sheet hierarchy, works for client because they have more flexible on how to build out their hierarchy.  No issues with ownership management, overrides or data movement within the movement dimension.  Only unknown with the basic balance sheet hierarchy is where to place the alternate income statement hierarchy.  Unlike the traditional balance sheet approach,  FCCS_Income Statement is not present when the Basic Balance sheet hierarchy is selected so unsure of where the alternate income statement accounts should be placed.    I am leaning towards placing the alternate income statement hierarchy directly under the top parent of the account dimension,  Account.    Has anyone else had a similar situation at their client?  If yes,  where did you place the alternate income statement accounts.

    Thanks

    Pamela

    Hierarchy Order in FCCS Account Dimension2
    Topic posted September 18, 2019 by Antonio BarbaroRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged Balance Sheet, Consolidation, Dimensions, Income Statement in Enterprise Performance Mgmt > Financial Consolidation and Close public
    Title:
    Hierarchy Order in FCCS Account Dimension
    Summary:
    Hierarchy Order in FCCS Account Dimension
    Content:

    Hi All,
    I have a question related to Hierarchy Order in FCCS Account Dimension.
    A month ago I modified the order of "Income Statement Hierarchy" than the predefined order ("Income Statement Hierarchy" is above "Balance Sheet Hierarchy").
    After last automatic update, I see the native order of the Account Dimension ("Income Statement Hierarchy" is below the "Balance Sheet Hierarchy").
    In this way, I have a surplus because the Income Statement Hierarchy was created as shared Member in "Balance Sheet Hierarchy". If I have to respect the native order I need to create the "Income Statement Hierarchy" as a shared member.
    Thanks in advance,
    Antonio

    FCCS Amount Overrides9

    Is documentation/instruction available, including form construction?
    Content:

    Does anyone have clear documentation on how best to create FCCS forms for loading "amount" overrides?  I need to adjust USD values.   I tried building the forms using the correct POV, I inputting the zero into the entity currency column and input the incremental change into the Data Input column, but the results are wildly wrong. 

    See attachment showing specific details.   Any/all guidance will be appreciated.

    Dear All,

    when we use a shared member (e.g. Account Dimension) in HsAlias function (Smart View) we have attached formatting.

    It is possible to hide the parent member in order to maintain only the alias member?

    Best Regards,

    Impact Status in FCCS

    Title:
    Impact Status in FCCS
    Summary:
    Issue related to copy rule from a source scenario to another
    Content:

    Dear All,

    we created a specific copy rule in FCCS that copies data from a source scenario (GL) to the Actual one.

    We noticed that data changes in GL scenario are not reflected in the Actual One by only launching the copy rule (Consolidate or Force Consolidate).

    The only way to update the Actual Data is to re - deploy rules.

    Is there the possibility to activate a sort of Impact Status in FCCS?
