The latest OTN ArchBeat series is a 3-part discussion of the various options for customizing the Oracle E-Business Suite user experience. The topic was suggested, and panel members selected, by Oracle ACE Monty Latiolais, who took on the guest producer role for this series. Here's how Monty pitched the idea to the panelists:
"The discussion [centers] around the different options EBS customers have to customize and tailor the EBS user experience. Some customers prefer Application Express, others are most productive using Excel. Still others prefer tradition Forms or Oracle Business Intelligence to work with their EBS data. We look to discuss the benefits of each option. No longer does EBS need to be a 'one size fits all' solution."
The Panelists(Listed alphabetically)
Want to dig deeper into extending Oracle E-Business Suite? The following resources were suggested by members of the panel for this discussion:
- Extending Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1+ Using Oracle Application Express, Oracle White Paper, September 2014
- Extend E-Business Suite with Application Express, OAUG Insight magazine, Summer 2014
- Tips for Planning an ERP Upgrade, Profit magazine, May 2012
