Extracting PSRM BO extension data using Materialized Views

Thank you to Chocks Subramanian for putting this together!

Business Objects defined with XML schemas in PSRM can be extended to include custom data elements.  These custom data extension elements are in XML format in a Business Object extension column, which is a CLOB data type in the database. When accessing this information through the PSRM application, always use the Business Object, which is easy to interact which. However, if you need to interact directly with the database (rather than the application), there are a number of ways you can access Business Object extension data stored in XML format in the BO data extension column (CLOB datatype). Of the many methods, this job aide is to provide a recommendation to use materialized view to flatten the xml element into relational column. The materialized view will be created with all the elements from the CLOB data that are required for reporting and the query predicates. To improve the performance further, indexes can be created on the columns of materialized view. 

This job aid has addition information on the recommended approach:

Link to blog post about the Angola PSRM v2.4 installation

 

I came across this interesting blog post today while searching for something else.  This is from a member of the PSRM project team in Angola who was installing their PSRM v2.4 environments.  He posted step by step information.  It looks like the installation went well.  I thought is was worth sharing for other project teams who may be doing their first PSRM installations.

Oracle ETPM is renamed Oracle Public Sector Revenue Management (PSRM)

We are excited to announce to that with the upcoming release of v2.4, we are renaming ETPM to Oracle Public Sector Revenue Management (Oracle PSRM).  This is a pure name change, and all terms and conditions for existing customer licensing remain unchanged.  We feel that this updated naming is a better reflection of our current customer base, which includes tax revenue for many Departments of Revenue, as well as agencies that at manage non-tax revenue, such as regulatory fees, loans, and social benefits.   

Please note, as part of this name change, related products in the Oracle ETPM family, such as Oracle Tax Analytics, and Oracle ETPM Self Service, will be renamed at their next major product release to align to the Oracle PSRM theme.

Archiving Roadmap

The Oracle archiving option available with Enterprise Taxation and Policy Management was created to help customers speed response time, reduce hardware costs, and to retain historical records for viewing and reporting.  In order to have a consistent product across the entire Oracle application stack, the current solution will be retired, in favor of a new option that will make better use of native, high performance DB features. Oracle DB provides an "archive" option within a set of features that are called "Information Lifecycle Management", or ILM.

This article provides a short overview of our future direction.
