During this week’s Oracle Open World, Oracle released an upgrade to its Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) Applications. The new release expands integration with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and adds analytics to better manage projects, procurements and spending.
The Oracle BI Applications latest upgrade (Release 188.8.131.52) adds a new adapter that integrates the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Supply Chain Planning and Order Management modules with Oracle Supply Chain and Order Management Analytics. The integration provides JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Supply Chain Planning and Order Management users with timely and accurate insight into order and inventory data.
Oracle also introduced certifications for the Oracle E-Business Suite (R12.1.2) and Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise (9.1).
“With support for additional platforms and extended capabilities to manage critical business functions, the latest release of Oracle BI Applications helps organizations further improve business visibility, streamline purchasing and improve cash flow,” said Paul Rodwick, vice president of Product Management, Oracle Business Intelligence in a statement.
Oracle also added other updates designed to help companies and organizations better leverage enterprise data to forecast costs, analyze spending and maximize ROI. Updates include:
More Accurate Project Commitment Information -- Oracle Project Commitments, an update to Oracle Project Analytics, lets stakeholders gain a more accurate picture of project costs by including committed costs in any project snapshot. These “commitment metrics” will enable managers to generate more precise forecast figures; measure performance against budget more accurately; and plan and manage cash flow with more solid information.
Improved Visibility into Spending Patterns -- Procurement Product catalog, an update to Oracle Procurement and Spend Analytics, will let users analyze spending patterns based on product and purchasing category hierarchies.
The latest Oracle BI Applications release is certified with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Further it provides tight integration with third-party solutions from Informatica, IBM, Microsoft and Teradata. Oracle BI Applications are a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, and offer prebuilt analytic applications for Oracle and non-Oracle applications.
