If you have questions about using Financial Inquiry in Fixed Assets, there is a new document that might be helpful - FAQ: Using Financial Inquiry Tool (Doc ID 2225072.1). In this document, you can find answers to frequently-asked questions about the form, its use, and errors you may have encountered when using the inquiry.
Perhaps you have encountered an error in the Financial Inquiry form (FAXOLFIN) or maybe the form hangs when you try to open it? Are you trying to find information on View Accounting in Release 12?
For example, one of the questions in the FAQ asks: In R12, how do I view accounting in the View Transaction Accounting form?
Answer: In R12 the accounting information will show in the Subledger Accounting page. This is different from 11i where the view accounting record was on the accounting form.
To view accounting lines from the Transaction History window:
However, if you upgrade from 11i to R12, upgraded history data will still show in the accounting form.
Check out the FAQ for other pertinent information on Financial Inquiry.
Over 20 EBS mobile apps are available today for E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. These apps are available for iOS and Android and cover functional areas such as Approvals, Expenses, Timecards, iProcurement, Sales Orders, Inventory, and much more. These apps are documented here:
Our mobile apps have just gone through a refresh cycle (a.k.a. "Release 6.1") along with updates to all of the server-side libraries. These updates are transparent to end-users and backwards-compatible with previous mobile app releases (e.g. "Release 6.0").
The latest versions of all of these apps use APIs that are documented in our Oracle Integration Repository. These APIs are newly-published as REST services. This means that you can now use these APIs to build your own custom mobile apps for EBS.
New guidelines for building your own mobile apps for the E-Business Suite are published here:
Why does Application Programming Interface (API) Management matter? This short overview video introduces the challenges of poorly managed APIs and how Oracle API Platform Cloud Service uniquely simplifies, secures, and monetizes your APIs. Share this video with you customers!
API Platform Cloud Service makes it easy to manage, secure, and publicize APIs by offering innovative solutions for these concepts:
Ensure that only the right consumer can access the right resources
Prepare a defense from potential attacks on your infrastructure
Analytics and Insights
Understand how your API is discovered, used and by whom
Stay aware of important happenings in your API ecosystem
Scope interfaces by resource, method, and field
Manage access quantity by application, API, resource, and plan
Route requests to the optimal service
In recent computing, "Automation" is the most commonly used word.
This word often has a negative connotation, as it brings up worries related to job loss and job replacement, but here's the reality.
To analyze what we're trying to automate and how humans will evolve to create new forms of work, we need to:
This is the best time to participate in building the future of work solutions for the next 20 years.
The future is about “working along with robots” not “working against
automation or robots."
This generation of humans will be become smarter and will evolve to create new solutions. There will be an increasing demand for those who can understand the future world and technologies like AI and Deep Learning.
Yes, the mundane, repetitive, recurring jobs will go away; but that is to be expected in any form of computing.
So why has the discussion around AI, Machine, Deep Learning and BOTS been significant during the last 2 years?
1. Infrastructure processing abilities have enabled voice based chat processing. This conversational interface integrates with applications and enables end users to interact in new ways. The cloud platform and infrastructure helps with design, development and integration of solutions.
2. We're bringing machines closer to human thinking. As we research contextual human working patterns, and natural interfaces, we're thinking of new ways to compute. The algorithms and data patterns are already available at data sets. The neural network, a programming architecture that can deal with multiple inputs and uses layers of nodes that model neurons, functions like the nervous system.
3. Robots have helped us build human pattern intelligence and algorithms to augment the future world.
4. The technology enablement of extending the five senses (see, hear, feel, touch, taste) in a unified solution is creating a new world of application possibilities. The virtual, augmented and mixed reality world will change the customer experience.
Furthermore, emotional APIs are being built to augment human behavior. For example, CRM applications that understand how the customer is feeling about your service, without any paper form or discussion, are not far away.
5. With organizations examining productivity and customer cost pressures for business innovation, automation will become the norm with AI technologies. We need resources to enable, architect and execute the automation to determine which tasks are repetitive and mundane in order to continuously create new patterns of innovation.
Oracle is innovating within the the AI/Deep Learning space. These developments are very exciting and will generate a lot of interest in the future.
Adaptive Intelligent Apps are uniquely powered by enormous amounts of the following:
This will continuously improve outcomes as the system reacts, learns and adapts. There is a value exchange between the end user and the adaptive intelligent app: the more the end user interacts, the more value they receive.
Chat bots platform
According to the Oracle Mobile Platform Blog:
"Oracle positions its platform as an interface for enterprise apps. The chatbots will also work with apps like Facebook Messenger, Slack and so on. Chatbots employ a conversational interface that is both lean and smart, and if designed properly, is even charming. They can help people find the things they want and need, in real-time, without the hassle of searching online or navigating a complex customer service organization."
The Virtual Assistant “ChatBot” platform will enable Mobile Cloud Service to engage in conversations across chat channels: SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Slack.
According to the Amis Technology Blog:
"When the APIs invoked by the ChatBot have been implemented using predictive analytics and machine learning, the dialog may appear smart and include recommendations, proactive responses and relevant warnings."
Oracle Management Cloud
"Oracle Management Cloud is a suite of IT infrastructure monitoring, management and analytics applications delivered as a service. Oracle Management Cloud’s log analytics service, for example, uses machine learning to cluster data and identify patterns in real-time log data to spot outliers and enable administrators to troubleshoot and resolve problems quickly."
According to Oracle.com,
"Another Oracle Management Cloud service, application performance monitoring, continuously learns the behavior of each application component, such as a web server request, and detects anomalies in real time, reducing the need to manually manage threshold-based alerts across hundreds of metric streams."
IOT Analytics Platform
“The main goal is to provide an IoT analytics platform that combines data from devices and equipment as well as other data lakes or enterprise applications,”says Bhagat Nainani, Oracle Group Vice President of Engineering.
Oracle HCM using Machine Learning
"Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud’s recruiting feature uses machine learning algorithms to help HR departments sort through resumes. In the past, HR software would 'simply parse through the résumés looking for keywords—the big advantage being the ability to deal with large amounts of data,' says Mark Bennett, work-life and collaborative products strategy director at Oracle."
To build the right AI and deep learning skills, we need to have a deep understanding of database, programming and digital technologies.
A good starting point is to explore the oracle IAAS andPAAS technologies to learn how they can be used to develop augmented solutions on SAAS for the future.
There are multiple components in PAAS/IAAS which are provided as service. These can be used for developing solutions:
Explore Oracle Cloud Learning SAAS, IAAS and PAAS for professionals.
Consider Oracle Student Learning Subscriptions, which leverage the PAAS/IAAS platform.
Get started on Java, Database and Node.Js programming for students and get Oracle Certified to validate expertise and differentiate yourself in a competitive job market.

Elke Phelps, Senior Principal Product Manager, provides an overview of Oracle E-Business Suite secure configuration guidelines and security features available when deploying Oracle E-Business Suite in Oracle Cloud. Knowledge of Oracle's Cloud Services, including IaaS and PaaS, is assumed. This material was presenterd at Oracle OpenWorld 2016.
Oracle Stream Analytics (OSA) is a graphical tool that provides “Business Insight into Fast Data”. In layman terms, that translates into an intuitive web-based interface for exploring, analysing, and manipulating streaming data sources in realtime. These sources can include REST, JMS queues, as well as Kafka. The inclusion of Kafka opens OSA up to integration with many new-build data pipelines that use this as a backbone technology.
Previously known as Oracle Stream Explorer, it is part of the SOA component of Fusion Middleware (just as OBIEE and ODI are part of FMW too). In a recent blog it was positioned as “[…] part of Oracle Data Integration And Governance Platform.”. Its Big Data credentials include support for Kafka as source and target, as well as the option to execute across multiple nodes for scaling performance and capacity using Spark.
I’ve been exploring OSA from the comfort of my own Mac, courtesy of Docker and a Docker image for OSA created by Guido Schmutz. The benefits of Docker are many and covered elsewhere, but what I loved about it in this instance was that I didn’t have to download a VM that was 10s of GB. Nor did I have to spend time learning how to install OSA from scratch, which whilst interesting wasn’t a priority compared to just trying to tool out and seeing what it could do. [Update] it turns out that installation is a piece of cake, and the download is less than 1Gb … but in general the principle still stands – Docker is a great way to get up and running quickly with something
In this article we’ll take OSA for a spin, looking at some of the functionality and terminology, and then real examples of use with live Twitter data.
To start with, we sign in to Oracle Stream Analytics: Read the complete article here.

With recent enhancements to our automation, you now have more options available when you automatically provision a new Vision demo or fresh install of Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud. At a high level, you can choose whichever of the following two procedures meets your specific needs:
These methods are described more fully in the following two sections.
Procedure 1: Provision a New Oracle E-Business Suite Installation across Multiple Cloud Service Instances
In this method, you first create a virtual machine from the "EBS Provisioning Tools" Marketplace image to deploy the EBS Cloud Admin Tool. You then launch the EBS Cloud Admin Tool and choose your desired topology. Depending on your choice, the tool accesses the appropriate binaries hosted on the EBS Cloud Public Container to provision your environment.
When you provision your environment, you may choose from the following EBS and database release combinations:
You will then be offered applicable Oracle Cloud service deployment options from the following:
We will be expanding the available release combinations and service options soon, so stay tuned.
Detailed instructions can be found in the Oracle by Example tutorial Provisioning a New Oracle E-Business Suite Installation on Oracle Cloud Using the EBS Cloud Admin Tool.
When you create an environment using the EBS Cloud Admin Tool, the tool can be used subsequently to manage that environment: for example, to add or delete nodes, take volume snapshots, or configure integrations. Look out for related upcoming articles on these topics.
Procedure 2: Provision a New Oracle E-Business Suite Installation on a Single Node on Oracle Cloud
For those with simpler requirements, we will continue to provide all-in one Marketplace images that can be used to provision Oracle E-Business Suite instances on a single node on Oracle Cloud.
You can select a Marketplace image such as "EBS 1226 Demo Install", and provision EBS in Oracle Compute Cloud Service by following the Oracle by Example tutorial Provisioning a New Oracle E-Business Suite Installation on a Single Node on Oracle Cloud.
The following release combinations are currently available:
You have a new version of SQLcl to download this morning.

In Part 1 of this series we saw how to setup a connection in Oracle Stream Analytics to Twitter and create a Tweet stream. In this part we will investigate using the OSA map and geo-spatial exploration features to display the tweet point of origin on a map.
Location Aware Tweets
Notice that tweets do not by default include the location information (latitude and longitude) of the post. Missing location data is set to minus one on the tweet as shown below.
In order to include location information, post from a mobile device that has location (GPS) hardware. Enable location on the tweet and turn on “Share precise location” as shown below.
Now that we have tweets with location information the next step is to create a map display in OSA to get visual display of point of origin.
OSA Maps and Patterns
map item allows you to set a rectangular region of the globe and “geo
fences” which will display highlighted markers if location data in the
stream is contained within the fence. Start by creating a new Map item. Read the complete article here.
