9780078823756: Oracle Financials Handbook (Oracle Press)

This book/CD-ROM reference discusses the various products contained in Oracle Financials, with an emphasis on its accounting packages. It provides detailed implementation instructions and advice. It offers a blueprint for planning an implementation. Readers should find accounting knowledge within the context of the Oracle products, coverage of key features in each product, and the key issues in successfully installing them. They should also gain a practical plan for organizing, budgeting, staffing and managing an Oracle applications implementation, and learn about the ways in which package implementation differs from custom software development. It also addresses when to modify the package to meet business requirements, and when to modify business practices to suit the package. The CD-ROM contains useful software and reference materials to be provided by the Oracle Group. This title is aimed at the planner level, rather than the user level. Readers discover how tht packages work together, how to exploit their strong points and work around their weak points, and what it really takes to install and use them successfully. It should be helpful at every stage of the life cycle, from package selection through production and maintenance. G. Seibert is the author of "Working With Oracle Development Tools" and "Oracle Data Processing - A Manager's Handbook".

Review:

Deploying Oracle applications in any organization is an enormous task, and Oracle Financials Handbook should be considered prerequisite reading for any technical or business process specialist involved in such a project. The applications provide core business processes based on Oracle Corporation's database architecture, and the book discusses some of the most popular applications in the suite.

The book opens with a brief executive summary of Oracle Financials. The authors place financial applications in perspective, explaining where they fit into the overall Oracle Applications strategy and what the benefits are of choosing them for core business processes. This section also presents some of the important organizational choices you must make at the outset of deployment.

In the middle section of the book, the authors discuss the modules: general ledger, receivables, payables, asset management, purchasing, inventory, order entry, and others. The General Ledger module forms the core of the strategy and is discussed in great detail. The book provides plenty of flow diagrams to explain each module. The authors devote an additional chapter to budgeting and allocations, and address different accounting models.

Oracle Financials Handbook closes with technical details on deploying Oracle Financials in an enterprise. The entire computing environment is considered in this discussion, which includes information on customizing and modifying the modules to meet your needs. The final chapters cover project management and training issues that you need to work through. --Stephen Plain
