Solution: BI Issues after Account Rename

Uncategorized
| May 19, 2020

Occasionally, when a Fusion user account is renamed, there is a sync issue that prevents the end-user accessing BI. Sometimes the data gets back in-sync within an hour or so, however sometimes the issue persists.

Exciting New Role – How Did I End Up Here?

Uncategorized
| May 13, 2020

Yesterday I updated my Linkedin profile with my new role and the amount of comments and likes just amazed me. Perhaps everyone has more time to read Linkedin during COVID19 but I was very touched by the comments.

Taking this role was not a simple decision because I didn't particularly label myself HCM. But then I realised I was hung up on historical job roles and not my actual skills.

Hiding OTBI Root Folders

Uncategorized

A new support doc was released on Christmas Eve last year (which may be why I missed it at the time!) describing how to implement functionality delivered via an Enhancement Request. This functionality gives us back the ability to hide root folders within OTBI.

First, a bit of history. A couple of years ago (in release 18A) Oracle removed the ability for customers to ‘modify the shipped BI catalogue content’. This meant we were (more...)

A couple of days ago the updates for OIC included a new feature B2B (April 2020 new). Specifically, support for EDI X12.

Correct Positioning of Background Images

Uncategorized

One of my favourite parts of any implementation is the branding. Working with the customer’s teams to shape the appearance of the application is often very rewarding. The colour schemes are often pre-set (as there’ll be a corporate style guide setting out the colour palette with strict rules about the situations in which each should be used) however companies can be a bit more creative when it comes to the background image.
