An Education in Fusion Financials
By Joe G on Mar 09, 2012
Over the past year, I have spent a lot of time working with customers who are implementing Fusion Financials. My primary role is to educate these early adopters on the inner workings of Fusion Financials and its benefits. Most of you probably assumed that I have just gotten bored with blogging and decided to abandon this blog. I can't completely argue with that assumption because honestly, it's partly true. However, a bigger part of the truth is that I wasn't really sure exactly what stuff anyone would be interested in reading. I can spew forth all kinds of detailed facts, but are any of you looking for a regurgitation of the vast information readily available on oracle.com regarding Fusion Financials? I doubt it.
In spending time working with these customers, I have gotten my own education. It's not that I learn new functionality in Fusion (well, sometimes), but I learn from listening to our customers and partners and from understanding their business needs and nuances. Sometimes, I'm schooled because of a complete misconception on their part of what they think Fusion is. Other times, it stems from my persistent questioning of "Why do you do that?"
We've been working on Fusion for several years now. Often, we forget that the concepts in Fusion, many of which we take for granted, are completely foreign to outsiders. For the more complex concepts, I believe that we are just beginning to understand the best way to explain them, or we're just now identifying the bigger, previously unrealized, benefits that many customers can gain from them.
Over the next few blog posts, I'm going to attempt to explain in detail some of the most common misconceptions, some of the more "interesting" concepts, and some the newly discovered benefits of Fusion Financials. In the meantime, if there is something that you're just dying to know, just leave a comment.
