Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - January 2020

Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory January 2020   Oracle continues to periodically receive reports of attempts to maliciously exploit vulnerabilities for which Oracle has already released security patches. In some instances, it has been reported that attackers have been successful because targeted customers had failed to apply available Oracle patches. Oracle therefore strongly recommends that customers remain on actively-supported versions and apply Critical Patch Update security patches without delay.   What is a Critical Patch Update? A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities. These patches are usually cumulative, but each advisory describes only the security patches added since the previous Critical Patch Update advisory. Thus, prior Critical Patch Update advisories should be reviewed for information regarding earlier published security patches. Please refer to Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Bulletins for information about Oracle Security Advisories.   Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - January 2020 Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - January 2020  contains 334 new security patches across different product families. Check the "Affected Products and Patch Information" section to see if any of your products are affected. For more information, refer to January 2020 Critical Patch Update: Executive Summary and Analysis (Doc ID 2627487.1)   Critical Patch Updates Critical Patch Updates are collections of security fixes for Oracle products. They are available to customers with valid support contracts. They are released on the Tuesday closest to the 17th day of January, April, July and October. The next four dates are: 14 April 2020 14 July 2020 20 October 2020 19 January 2021 ======================================================================================= References: Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - January 2020 January 2020 Critical Patch Update: Executive Summary and Analysis (Doc ID 2627487.1) Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Bulletins Critical Patch Updates

Using Application Monitor to Manage Your Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud Applications

About the Application Monitor The Application Monitor enables administrators, at design-time, to identify and resolve design flaws before an application is placed in production (and on an ongoing basis, as the application evolves with new members and data is added to the application) and used by end users. Administrators can use the application monitor to evaluate the following: An entire application Types of artifacts such as forms and approval units Individual "cherry picked" artifacts The application monitor identifies changes that administrators can make at design-time to resolve artifacts with design flaws, and provides easy access to the editors required to modify them. At runtime, internal processes perform checks that may deny system request if artifacts need to be modified. The application monitor evaluates your application and artifacts based on the user an administrator selects. This enables you to determine the potential problems that may occur at runtime given the individual user's variables and security access as part of the analysis. How the Application Monitor Works The application monitor evaluates applications as follows: At design-time—Analyzes the application or specific artifacts in terms of all possible problems that could occur. To determine this worst possible situation, suppression options (such as those used with forms) are ignored. The application monitor provides information about how to fix the design flaws it encounters. At runtime—Internal governors perform checks that may prevent users from performing particular actions if the design flaws found are not resolved. Use the application monitor to analyze the following:     Block storage cubes     Dimensions     Simple forms     Standalone business rules     Approval unit hierarchies     Reporting mappings     Export data functionality How to launch the monitor and use the graphs: Using the Application Monitor Graphs Launching the Application Monitor ========================================================================================================== References: Application Monitor - Documentation

README FILE: Refer to the Readme files prior to proceeding with these PSU implementations for important information that includes the supported paths per component, along with a full list of the defects fixed, additional support information, prerequisites, details for applying patch and troubleshooting FAQ's.

In the MOS | Patches & Updates screen for the relevant patch, simply click the "Start a Discussion" and submit your review. The patch install reviews and other patch related information is available within the My Oracle Support Communities. Visit the Oracle Hyperion EPM sub-space: Hyperion Patch Reviews   For questions specific to Hyperion Essbase ...

Updates to the Console and My Services Dashboard in Oracle Cloud

The Oracle Cloud User and Developer Experience team is proud to announce the next suite of usability enhancements for Oracle Cloud. The biggest update includes improving the user experience for the IaaS and PaaS console. It will be easier for you to manage all your Oracle Cloud services — whether they be IaaS, PaaS, and now SaaS — from a single login. The Console and My Services Dashboard are updated to provide a more unified customer experience. These updates will enhance and simplify managing your cloud, but the placement for several key navigational actions will also change. For more information, refer to Console Experience Enhancements Unite IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. Updated areas of the Console include: Cost Analysis, Invoices & Subscription ID IDCS Console Access from Tenancy Details PaaS Navigation PaaS Access Management Announcements Live Chat My Home (re-labeled Service User Console) How does this affect me? If you use the Oracle Cloud My Services dashboard to access and manage services, over the next few days you will notice an updated dashboard experience after you sign in. Depending on the services you subscribe to, you will see various visual and navigational changes that are documented here. Most users will see the new Console experience by default, and will no longer need to navigate to My Services to manage their cloud. Do I need to take any action? We recommend reading the announcement blog post so you are familiar with how the upcoming changes may affect navigation to certain features within the console. Do I need to update saved URLs or bookmarks? No. Previously saved URLs will automatically redirect to the new Console experience.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Change in Enhancement Request Processes That Will Impact Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud Customers

Attention all Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud Customers! On a target date of October 1st, there will be a change in the Enhancement Request (ER) processes that will impact the way you create an ER. Oracle EPM Cloud will be moving the Enhancement Request (ER) processes out of My Oracle Support and into the Idea Labs within Cloud Customer Connect. This move is part of our ongoing initiative to continuously improve the customer experience and transparency of the enhancement request process and delivery. If a service request (SR) is determined to be a product enhancement, customers can decide if they would like to log this as an Idea in the appropriate Idea Lab (or vote on one that is already established in the Lab). Enhancement requests will no longer be created in My Oracle Support. Having ideas within the Idea Labs allows customers to have further conversations with other Oracle EPM Cloud Customers, Partners, and Product Development. This will deliver more transparency on enhancement suggestions by allowing customers to socialize their ideas and the ability to vote on others. Customers will be able to see the periodic updates on the most voted ideas from the EPM Cloud Development team.   Please note the following: Targeted date for this change is October 1, 2019. Training session via Customer Connect held on September 25 - Click here to view the recording. For more information regarding this change, review the EPM FAQ Document. Note: To view this announcement, you will need to be a member of Oracle Cloud Customer Connect! Sign up now.

Narrative Reporting: European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) Disclosure Management with iXBRL

Thank you to Dave Roberts, Product Management, for his presentation on this topic. What is ESMA and how can I learn about ESMA Disclosure Management with iXBRL for Narrative Reporting? The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published a Feedback Statement setting out the digital format which issuers in the European Union (EU) must use to report their company information from 1 January 2020. It concludes that Inline XBRL is the most suitable technology to meet the EU requirement for issuers to report their annual financial reports in a single electronic format because it enables both machine and human readability in one document. Narrative Reporting with Disclosure Management - ESMA 2020 What does all of this mean as a customer? All issuers in 2020 in the European Union will need to report their annual filing in iXBRL Narrative Reporting is uniquely suited to retrieve data from disparate data sources Narrative Reporting is cross platform compatible with other Oracle products which the customer may need such as TRCS, SDM, PCMCS, FCCS etc. Narrative Reporting can manage both the annual reporting as well as create the needed iXBRL for this requirement Assessing the ESMA Opportunity Starting January 1, 2020, all EU companies (approximately 5,300 issuers) will be required to file their ESMA financials using iXBRL (XHTML w/ embedded XBRL). Server side and client side changes are required to support this opportunity in Narrative Reporting with Disclosure Management and are planned for release 19.02 - 19.04 The ESEF taxonomy is open, based on IFRS and will require companies to extend company specific concepts and anchor these extensions to standardized concepts in the ESEF taxonomy. ESEF sets out that where an extension taxonomy element combines a number of elements of the ESEF taxonomy, issuers shall anchor that extension taxonomy element to each of the elements in the ESEF taxonomy it combines, except where these elements are reasonably deemed insignificant. ESMA requires that all consolidated face financials, such as Balance Sheet, Income Statement , Statement of Cash Flow, and so on must be detailed and tagged and all Notes to Financial Statements be individually tagged as single blocks of text. Regulator iXBRL tagging will be completed in the same manner as other regulators with the exception that any text string or text block tag that is in a language other than English will need to specify the language in the Mapping Tool UI. Disclosure Management Statutory Reporting Made Simple - Mapping allows you to drag and drop XBRL tagging in MS Office Creating XBRL instance documents Full regulatory-specific validation support for ESMA via Arelle plug in View iXBRL document using Arelle plug in Publish in XBRL, iXBRL, EDGAR HTML, PDF, Word ============================================================================================================================= References: Presentation - by Dave Roberts, Product Management Feedback Statement EPM Cloud Documentation

Operational Planning ─ Introducing Unshackled Planning Applications on Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud

Thank you to Manish Daga, Venu Machiraju, Suren Seshadri and Shankar Viswanathan, EPM Product Development, for the presentation on this topic. Free Form Planning Excel workbook models are inefficient. Customers have been leveraging Essbase for free form planning for many years and are looking for a SaaS based free form planning process that offers flexibility of Essbase; has the ability to create cubes from excel; enables robust web based planning capabilities and connect these free form and structured planning apps across the organization. Free form Planning is another application type within EPM Cloud Service - Planning Business Process without requiring prerequisite dimensionality or its associated functionality. The following are the primary characteristics of free form planning application: Does not require all Planning specific dimensions The scale of the dimensions is large (~1 million) Leverages Essbase calculation engine Performs instantaneous roll-up Application can be created using Essbase OTL or empty cube Support UI features like Dashboards, Web forms, Valid Combinations etc Free Form Planning provides the following: Build open definition models quickly No required dimensions Import Essbase outlines Hybrid/BSO or ASO cube Leverage EPM platform features – Web and Smart View Single cube per app | Multi app Build large scale models Large # of dimensions Large # of members 2019 roadmap Import Essbase LCM (Q3 CY19) Create app using template in Smart View (Q3 CY19) Web based quick app wizard (Q4 2019) Free Form Scenario Modeling Free Form Scenario Modeling provides the following: Single click model creation from excel templates. Copy paste from excel to create model metadata Create model hierarchies and perform “what-if” scenario modeling Model data can be sliced and diced into “views” and persisted. Views can be included within dashboards. Connect models with free form cubes Create models from free form cubes. Free Form Scenario Model Dimensions Time - Hierarchical single year-period dimension Measures - Free form open set of measures/KPIs/drivers Values – Input / Output - Allows for driver based forecasting like sales as a growth rate Scenario - Associate multiple scenarios to compare Introducing Simplified Model Builder Convert your excel models into Free form Planning Model Start with a small & simple application and enhance over a period of time Any business user can build the model in few hours Connected Planning Use Cases Align top-down Financial Plans with bottom-up Demand Plans Improved Accuracy Predictability of Financial Forecasts Align Demand Plans with Inventory Management/Supply Planning Integrate Departmental Planning with Corporate Planning Independent planning process Country/Region specific needs Scalable Architecture Provide Unified View of Plans across domain Blend the UI flows across Corporate Plans and Department Plans Provide secure view as per the need Corporate Users have more visibility into the department plans Integrated workflow between ERP and Operational Planning Systems Refer to the presentation for more information regarding: Comparable features between Essbase and Free Form Free Form, Custom & Module Based Planning Implementation Guideline Unified Functional Navigation Data Integration Implementation Guideline Rest API Integration Incremental Data Loads ============================================================================================================================= References: Presentation - Manish Daga, Venu Machiraju, Suren Seshadri and Shankar Viswanathan, EPM Product Development EPM Cloud Documentation
