New White Paper released: ERP Integrator and FDM Enterprise Edition: Understanding the Account Reconciliation Manager (ARM) Data Loading Process

(In via Mel)

We are pleased to announce that the following NEW White Paper has been released::

ERP Integrator and FDM Enterprise Edition:
Understanding the Account Reconciliation Manager (ARM) Data Loading Process

Doc ID 1662983.1

A few words from the Financial Close Management  (FCM) Product Mananger:

"Data loading to ARM is facilitated through the use of ERPI with version and prior, and FDMEE release and higher.  It is important to understand the details of the data load process in order to build and maintain mapping rules in ERPI or FDMEE that transform the source data into the format that can be loaded to Profiles in ARM.  The focus of this document is to explain the nuances of the data load process from ERP sources to ARM.

If you are implementing ARM, we strongly recommend reading the white paper,  as it discusses strategies for filtering datasets and attending to unmapped accounts."

If you have any questions on this matter, please reply to the discussion that has been started in the FCM Subspace:
