Using Extended Dimensionality in Financial Consolidation and Close (FCCS)

What do I need to know before using Extended Dimensionality in Financial Consolidation and Close (FCCS)? Thank you to Rich Wilkie, Senior Director, Product Management, for the presentation on this topic. Below are the answers to the Frequently Asked Questions about using Extended Dimensionality in FCCS. 1. How do I request extended dimensionality? Requests should follow the one-off patch request process following the additional guidelines in the October, 2018 What’s New: 2. How many dimensions can I have? When Extended Dimensionality is enabled, you can create four Custom dimensions. If the application is enabled with the Multi-GAAP reporting option, you can create three Custom dimensions. 3. When will I receive the update? The target release date for the availability of this one-off patch is mid-October, 2018. You can request it starting now and at any time after that as well. The update will first be applied to the test environment. Production will only be updated when you request it from Support. 4. Will my existing application work once I receive the new functionality? When the Extended Dimensionality update is applied, your existing application will no longer be available. You must create a new application. You cannot modify the number of dimensions in an existing application. After the update is complete, any existing application snapshot cannot be loaded. NOTE:  Existing customers who do not require extra dimensions do not need to do anything and are not affected. 5. Can I use LCM snapshots? Extended Dimensionality is only available for new applications. The Migration Snapshot feature is not available between non-Extended Dimension and Extended Dimension applications. Once you create an application, you can use it within Extended Dimensional environments, you just cannot use it between Extended and non-Extended environments. 7. Will my environment be upgraded automatically the next month? For subsequent releases, if you have Extended Dimensionality, you must also request an update from Oracle Support. NOTE:  This only affects those customers who have requested and are using Extended Dimensions 8. What else is different between extended dimensionality functionality? Custom Dimensions: The default members are exactly the same, except that the “Total Custom” member is now “Dynamic Calc” instead of “Never Share”. Any new parent members that you create in these Custom dimensions must use the Data Storage property of “Dynamic Calc”. Multi-GAAP Dimension: The default Multi-GAAP hierarchy that is created by the application now follows the same paradigm as the Custom dimensions. The Data Storage property for Parent members will be “Dynamic Calc”. Intercompany Dimension: The FCCS_Intercompany Entities parent member is now created as a “Dynamic Calc” member. You do not need to make any changes to this dimension. View Dimension: The system will add three new members under a new parent member “FCCS_View_System Members”: “FCCS_QTD_RULE”, “FCCS_HYTD_RULE”, and “FCCS_YTD_RULE”. QTD, HYTD and YTD member formulas will now be “Never Share” and populated when consolidation is executed. 9. Are there any known issues? For applications that do not have Ownership Management enabled, the values in Proportion and Contribution members for accounts with Time Balance of type “Balance” will be shown incorrectly. This is a known issue that will be fixed in a future release. 10. What if I don’t need extra dimensions? Existing applications that do not need more than two custom dimensions are not affected and no changes or actions are required.  This article is specific to customers who require more than two custom dimensions only.    References: Presentation - click to view presentation by Rich Wilkie, Senior Director, Product Management FCCS Administer FCCS Use Find guides Watch videos Learn what’s new

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud Backup, Archive, and Restore

What is the EPM Cloud backup, archive, and restore strategy? Thank you to Vinay Gupta, Consulting Member of the Technical Staff, for the presentation on this topic. Oracle Cloud Services Backup Strategy Oracle Cloud Hosting and Delivery Policy states: Oracle periodically makes backups of Your production data in the Oracle Cloud Services for Oracle's sole use to minimize data loss in the event of an incident. Backups are stored at the primary site used to provide the Oracle Cloud Services, and may also be stored at an alternate location for retention purposes. A backup is typically retained online or offline for a period of at least 60 days after the date that the backup is made. Oracle typically does not update, insert, delete or restore Your data on Your behalf. However, on an exception basis and subject to written approval, Oracle may assist You to restore data which You may have lost as a result of Your own actions. For Oracle Cloud Services which enable You to configure backups in accordance with Your own policies, You are responsible for performing backups and restores of Your data, non-Oracle software, and any Oracle software that is not provided by Oracle as part of these services. Additionally, You are encouraged to develop a business continuity plan to ensure continuity of Your own operations in the event of a disaster.  Oracle Cloud Hosting and Delivery Policies   EPM Cloud Daily Backups The daily maintenance window backs up your artifacts and data, and creates Artifact Snapshot. Artifact Snapshot is created primarily to restore your service instance in the case of a catastrophic failure. Oracle recommends that you download the Artifact Snapshot and archive it to a local machine daily so that it can be imported back at a future date, if needed. You can use EPM Automate to automate the downloading and archiving of the daily Artifact Snapshots EPM Automate sample script to automate downloading and archiving daily Artifact Snapshots.   Option to Use Oracle Compute and Storage Cloud Services If you do not want to run the EPM Automate script and archive the daily Artifact Snapshots on-premise, you can acquire Oracle Compute and Storage Cloud services, and run the EPM Automate script and archive the daily Artifact Snapshots in the cloud.

Financial Consolidation Cloud Service (FCCS) - Consolidation Performance and Failure Diagnosis

How to self diagnose consolidation failures and performance issues in Financial Consolidation Cloud Service (FCCS)? Thank you to the following people for the presentation on this topic. Prasad Tungaturthy, Director, EPM Shailesh Kumar, Senior Director, EPM Vinay Gupta, Consulting Member of Technical Staff Below are the causes of Consolidation Performance and Functional Issues: 1. Bad application design: Incorrect metadata properties can cause errors during consolidation and poor performance. Best practices for metadata properties can be checked by Simplified Dimension Editor Metadata Validator Fixing the metadata errors are important for consolidation performance and correctness. Documentation on Editing Member Properties in the Simplified Dimension Editor  2. Unnecessary calculations: The consolidation process and steps are clearly documented in FCCS. By default, FCCS performs many calculations during the consolidation process that may not be needed for the customer. Turning some of these calculations off could improve performance: Balance Sheet Calculation - If the Balance Sheet is out of balance, a balancing amount is calculated and posted to a seeded account called "Balance". This is a predefined miscellaneous liability account which is used solely for the purpose of keeping the Balance Sheet balanced. You have the option to disable this calculation if you do not want the system to automatically balance the Balance Sheet for you. Ratios Calculations - Disabling the Ratios Calculations will also give a boost in performance. You cannot disable Ratios on an existing app; therefore, the app will have to be recreated with Ratios unchecked when specifying the creation application options. 3. Poorly written configurations/extensions: The default consolidation logic can be extended by the customer or partner. The customer specific logic is inserted as part of the overall consolidation process and can be written as: Member formulas Calculation logic Translation/consolidation overrides Poorly written logic in these extensions/configurations can severely cause performance degradation 4. Lack of needed house keeping: Clearing Empty Blocks - Keeping the Essbase engine tuned by removing unnecessary data blocks and ensuring the structure is efficiently stored is important for optimal consolidation performance. Dense restructure Doing the necessary house keeping can improve consolidation performance. 5. Software bug/issue: After performing step 1-4 and making the necessary corrections, the consolidation performance may still not be optimal; therefore, turn on Consolidation Logs. Before creating the SR, enable the consolidation logs and submit Provide Feedback, to help Oracle quickly identify the software bottleneck. For more information on Provide Feedback, refer to Using the Provide Feedback Utility to Help Oracle Collect EPM Cloud Diagnostic Information 6. Consolidation Functional Issues: After performing step 1-5 and making the necessary corrections, the consolidation performance may have improved but you may still see some functional issues. Check the Presentation for more information.   References: Presentation - click to view presentation Documentation on Editing Member Properties in the Simplified Dimension Editor Using the Provide Feedback Utility to Help Oracle Collect EPM Cloud Diagnostic Information

How to Optimize Slow Business Rules Identified in an Application Activity Report

As a customer, how can I optimize slow business rules identified in an Application Activity Report? Thank you to the following people for their presentation on this topic. Jane Story, Sr. Principal Applications Specialist Vinay Gupta, Consulting Member of Technical Staff Steps for Optimizing Slow Business Rules 1. Use the Application Activity Report to help find out which business rules are taking the longest time to execute. Make note the business rule/calc script name in the reports. 2. Clone the application from prod service instance to test service instance 3. For each slow running business rule, execute the following steps: Run the business rule from the Calculation Manager Click Create and Manage->Rules from Navigator Navigate to the business rule in the Calculation Manager System View, right click, and select open When the rule opens, click Play Provide RTP values, and click OK   Use Log Messages in Calculation Manager to identify which steps in the rule are taking the longest time. After the business rule is executed, a new Log Messages tab appears with the following columns. Using this information, you can see which pass (or passes) have taken the highest percentage of the total calculation time to run. Optimize the identified steps and run the business rule again to ensure that it takes less time to execute but still calculates correct results and results in correct block creation. The Log Messages tab helps the business rule implementer determine how the total business rule execution time is spread across the number of calculation passes. The start of a new pass is shown in Log Messages with a bold line. View the Pass # and Pass % columns to determine which passes consume most of the total business rule execution time. The sections that take the largest percentage of the total time are the candidates for optimization. After the changes are made, re-run the business rule and compare the log messages. Once the business rules are optimized, migrate the changes back to prod service instance   Refer to the presentation for an example of troubleshooting a business rule before and after updates are made.     References: presentation - click to view presentation
