The Value of UPK Pre-Built Content


The Value of UPK Pre-Built Content

Have you considered utilizing Oracle's UPK pre-built content to assist with your organization's implementation or upgrade?

UPK pre-built content is application specific. Created by Oracle Applications Development Documentation teams, the content documents best practices for system processes within Oracle applications.

UPK pre-built content provides value in many ways throughout the software lifecycle. Since most of us are better critics than writers, we find it much easier to edit than to start with a blank page. Your organization can save time and effort by using the UPK pre-built content to:


  • Educate your project teams and line of business owners early on in the blueprinting/envisioning stage

  • Assist in project scoping and fit/gap analysis

  • Provide a jump start in creating system process documentation, user acceptance test scripts, job aids, training, and support materials.

In most organizations, UPK pre-built content is usually not used as is. The vast majority of organizations configure or customize their applications and want to capture their data as part of the documentation. Your organization can get a jump start in the documentation process and easily save time by updating the pre-built content, using the UPK Developer, so it mirrors the final deployed application. UPK's re-record feature helps make this easier by enabling a guided recapture of the screens and steps in the application.

A variety of UPK pre-built content modules are available for PeopleSoft Enterprise, E-Business Suite, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World, Siebel, Agile, Demantra, and Hyperion. For a list of all available modules, please refer to the content data sheets in Oracle's UPK Resource Library.

Pre-built content is also useful for new UPK content authors to see 'best practice' for how to structure their UPK library.
