    When you perform a financial adjustment on an asset such as a cost adjustment, a depreciation method change, or a date placed in service change, the effect that the adjustment will have depends on whether the adjustment is expensed or amortized.

    If the transaction is an Expensed Adjustment, the effect of the adjustment will be from the Date Placed In Service (DPIS) of the asset.  Oracle Assets recalculates depreciation using the new information starting from the DPIS and derives the expected depreciation. The expected depreciation reserve will be compared with the existing depreciation reserve of the asset and any excess or deficit amount will be accounted in the period in which the adjustment is done.

    If you want the adjustment to be effective from a specific period and not from the DPIS, the transaction needs to be an Amortized Adjustment.  For amortized adjustments, the effect of the adjustment will be from the period in which the amortization start date falls and the accumulated depreciation prior to the amortization start date will not be re-validated.  When an amortized adjustment is performed, Oracle Assets spreads the adjustment amount over the remaining life or remaining capacity of the asset. 

    Note that once an asset has an amortized adjustment, it is no longer possible to perform an expensed adjustment on that asset.

    How do you perform an Expensed or an Amortized adjustment?

    While performing the transaction, whether it is expensed or amortized depends on these selections:

    screen shot
    Here is an example of how expensed and amortized adjustments work:

    Let's take an asset that has these parameters:
    Cost = 12000
    DPIS = 01-JAN-2016
    Depreciation method and life = STL for 12 months
    In the Aug-16 period, the life is changed to 15 months.

    If the adjustment is expensed:

    The depreciation, with an asset life of 12 months, would be 12000 / 12 = 1000 per month.
    The depreciation, with an asset life of 15 months, would be 12000 / 15 = 800 per month.
    Until the Aug-16 period, the asset was depreciating based on a life of 12 months.  The existing depreciation reserve of the asset is 1000 * 7 months = 7000.
    Based on the new life, the accumulated depreciation should be 800 * 7 months = 5600.
    The depreciation catch-up in Aug-16 is 7000 - 5600 = (1400).
    From the Aug-16 period onwards, the monthly depreciation for the asset will 800.

    Now, if that adjustment is amortized:

    The depreciation, with an asset life of 12 months, would be 12000 / 12 = 1000 per month.
    The depreciation reserve amount charged up to Aug-16 is 1000 * 7 months = 7000.
    So, the net book value of the asset as of Aug-16 is 12000 - 7000 = 5000.
    The remaining life of the asset as of the Aug-16 period is:  Total life – life already completed = 15 months – 7 months = 8 months.
    From the Aug-16 period onwards, the monthly depreciation for the asset will be Net Book Value / Remaining Life = 5000 / 8 months = 625.

    - An independent, non-commercial story.
    - The business case is preferably presented by the customer.
    - The technical aspects are preferably illuminated by a substantive technical expert.
    - The case is relevant, in other words, not more than one year old.
    - The presentation must have a challenging / innovative character, preferably to let the visitors think about the topic and provoke discussion.

    Do you have an inspiring presentation you want to share with your peers? Please fill in the form at http://www.tech17.nl before the 15th of January 2017. After we've received your form, the programme committee will judge the presentation and contact you.

    Valuable Features:

    The integration possibilities with other Oracle Fusion middleware products is the most valuable feature of the SOA Suite solution.

    Improvements to My Organization:

    I'm a contractor, so my client organizations are the ones who benefit from SOA Suite. With it, it's quite visible the number of both internal and external processes that are more integrated. Another organizational benefit is that less human intervention is required when running the suite of products in SOA.

    Room for Improvement:

    Although the SOA Suite solutions integrate well with Oracle Fusion middleware products, it lacks similar integration with Enterprise Manager. This is something that, in my experience working with clients, is needed for SOA Suite to be a better product.  Read the complete article here.

    Valuable Features:
    • The technology adapters (Database, REST, LDAP, File, many more), which allow easy integration with technologically diverse systems.
    • BPEL and Service Bus, which allow diverse integration patterns to be easily implemented.
    • The extensive Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control which provides management and monitoring capabilities.
    • The high availability features (mostly important for performance and stability).

    Since the SOA Suite provides many components, it is an extensive toolkit for a developer, who can, with relatively little coding, quickly achieve complex functionality.

    Improvements to My Organization:

    We implement SOA Suite at different customers. The product helps them achieve their goals in terms of integration requirements (functional and non-functional). This ranges from service-enabling legacy systems to integrating COTS products in a stable, performant, and manageable way. Currently, I work for a customer that is digitalizing a legal processes. At this customer we implement reusable services and processes used by multiple front- and backend applications. ... Read the complete article here.

    We’ve been talking about this for a couple years now, but finally did it. The idea is to take the very popular Open World panel session called “Oracle SOA Suite Tips and Tricks from Oracle Engineering and A-team” and bring this content to a much wider audience via webinar. We tested the waters with the first webinar in Jan, 2016 and it was even more successful than we had hoped.

    We are now extending this into a larger series, to promote sharing of knowledge and expertise with the SOA Suite community at large. We have the commitment of the A-team and lots of good content from engineering, partners as well as customers. So, please check out the information below and register for the series. Get the slides here.

    Oracle Fusion Middleware products get new Patch Set updates.  When a new Patch Set has been released, a 12 month Grace Period for the previous Patch Set begins.  Once that Grace Period ends, no new patches for the previous Patch Set will be released.

    For more details, see:

    Oracle Access Manager is part of a suite of products called "Oracle Identity and Access Management" (IAM).  OAM 11.1.2.2 was released in January 2014.  OAM 11.1.2.3 was released in May 2015, which means that the Grace Period for OAM 11.1.2.2 ended after May 2016. 

    All E-Business Suite users running OAM 11.1.2.2 should upgrade to OAM 11.1.2.3 to remain under Error Correction Support.
