Collaborate 2012 wrap up - A Few Presentations Worth a Second Look
By mdonohue on May 15, 2012
It's been a few weeks and hopefully everyone is fully recovered. Here are a few presentations that really stood out. No offense to any not mentioned, there were too many to attend and describe here.
Adam Crigger of Preferred Strategies presented "Using Oracle BI Publisher for JD Edwards Operations and Financial Reporting" He unveiled some fabulous layouts he built using BI Publisher 18.104.22.168 on top of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data.
John Peters of JRP JR, Inc showed us some very useful tips when modifying data templates in E-Business Suite in his presentation, "Adding Data Elements to BI Publisher Documents" He outlined very clearly the different types of data sources and best practices for updating the seeded E-Business Suite data extracts.
In her presentation, "Using Oracle BI Publisher to E-mail Customer ACH Payment Confirmations" Kristina Boone of MediaNews Group went over the step-by-step procedure she followed to create custom payment confirmations using an RTF template in BI Publisher. She then showed how to configure her JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system to run it. Great Stuff!
Glen T. Ryen, from Prisio Technologies presented "Oracle Payments in Release 12 – Take It To the Bank!" on Thursday to a nearly SRO crowd - impressive for get away day. Those who stayed for this presentation were well rewarded. Perfect balance between Functional and Technical and it gave enough detail and pointers to go deeper. Several of the attendees around me commented that it was exactly what they were looking for.
I see that the Collaborate site is no longer hosting the presentations and white papers - bummer. I'm told that the user groups - OAUG, Quest and IOUG will be making those available to members on their sites in a few weeks. Please check with your user group or the presenter if you're interested in the material.
