 Background

In today's data-driven world, having access to fresh data is a fundamental aspect of staying competitive and agile. It empowers companies to make informed decisions, minimize risks, enhance operational efficiency, and meet the evolving needs of customers and markets.

This document is an attempt to describe a technical architectural pattern for Oracle Fusion Application Cloud data extract at a higher frequency than it is typically used in a Data Management and Analytics context to enable organization to meet the data recentness requirements in a Finance, Supply Chain Management or Customer Experience context.

It will first describe the various business cases and benefits for the functional domains cited above.

Then it will describe the technical architecture on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) of the proposed solution, specifically the Data Extraction layer and the Data Transformation and Load layer.

Having close to near real-time data updates in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), and Customer Experience (CX) offers significant business benefits by providing decision-makers with up-to-date information. In today's fast-paced business environment, real-time data enables organizations to make agile and informed decisions. For ERP systems, it means that financial and operational data is constantly refreshed, allowing for precise financial forecasting, inventory management, and production planning. This, in turn, helps in optimizing resource allocation, reducing costs, and ensuring that business processes are aligned with current market conditions. In SCM, real-time data enables enhanced visibility into the supply chain, allowing companies to respond promptly to disruptions, optimize inventory levels, and meet customer demand efficiently. This results in reduced lead times, lower carrying costs, and improved customer satisfaction.
