Fusion Applications OTBI and Descriptive Flexfield

In Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence for Oracle Fusion applications a very good feature is to use DFF to make any analysis. It used to be very painful for any organization to make analysis based on DFF using BIAPPS. Now it’s just matter of few clicks and you are done.

What Oracle says “If a descriptive Flexfield is enabled for Oracle Business Intelligence, the Manage Descriptive Flexfields task displays a BI Enabled checkbox for each global, context, and context-sensitive segment. Select a segment’s BI Enabled checkbox to specify that the segment is available for use in Oracle Business Intelligence.

The Future of Project Management is Social

Rapid Ascent. Breakneck Speed. Lightning Fast. Perhaps even overwhelming. No matter which set of adjectives we use to describe it, social media’s rise into the enterprise mainstream has been unprecedented.

You may be asking (as you should really) “That’s all well and good for the consumer, but for me at my company, what’s your point? Beyond the fact that I can check and post updates, that is.”

Good question, kind sir.
