    Oracle ERP Cloud is coming and many users are moving to the cloud, that has tools to allow end users and high-end power users to capture, summarize, present and distribute information in many ways. Financial reporting takes on a new persona and has newer tools – more user friendly (accountant friendly with SmartView) and Financial Reporting Studio (FRStudio) that enables users to directly use charts, graphs, alerts in their reporting exercise that needed consultants in years past – now you can have these done in-house by the end-user.

    All that is needed is the proper understanding of the tools available, what tool is best for which job, and training. A major change is the hierarchy that has now become key in efficient usage of these tools.

    The session is presented by Oracle ERP Cloud veterans, with over 30 successful implementations between them, this presentation will focus on which tool is best for the task at hand.

    The objectives of this session would be to give the participant an overview of the tools available and how these differ from FSG’s. The focus will also be to assist in enabling the user to understand the gotcha with hierarchy taking a center stage in the new world.
