Financials Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
By elise.mattei on Oct 10, 2007
Just thought I'd offer a quick look into Terrance's Financials R12 and Beyond presentation at Open World As Joe mentioned in a previous post, Financials is turning 20 years old this year, so we'll be looking back a bit, and also taking a peek into the future. First, Terrance will talk about the origins of Release 12 - what our customers were saying that helped the release to take shape, as well as how the macro business environment pressures helped to make it what it is. Then, he'll talk about Release 12's Global Business Architecture and how it is really a foundation for future innovation (read: Fusion). He'll talk about our very closely related GRC and EPM suites and how they compliment our current Financial Management solution. Finally, he'll talk a bit about the future of Oracle Financials - from the new Oracle Reports Repository which is our Web 2.0 based report sharing site, to the highlights of Release 12.1 and then just a glimpse into Fusion.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that this session has got a special guest. We know you don't just want to hear it from us, so the CIO of a major international airline who just recently went live on Financials Release 12 will take the stage and say a few words. Sound interesting? We think it should be.
