What's New

Target Application Enhancements

In this release, Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management, Enterprise Edition now supports:

  • Oracle Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management (HPCM)

  • Tax Provision Application of Oracle Hyperion Financial Management

Target Load Options

In Data Load Rules, you can now specify target application options specific to a location. For example, you can select different data protection values for each location.

Data Synchronization

In this release, a robust data synchronization feature has been added to FDMEE so that you can easily move data between the EPM applications irrespective of the dimensionality of the application without having to create a data file from the EPM source application. You specify the source and target EPM application, and then map the data. Given the powerful mapping features already available, the data can be easily transformed from one application to another application. For example, synchronizing data enables you to move data from Financial Management to Oracle Essbase for reporting.

Write-Back

FDMEE has been enhanced to support write-back from all EPM applications (except the Accounts Reconciliation Manger) to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications. This feature offers significant advantages, such as writing back budgets created in Planning to Peoplesoft or E-Business Suite ERP GL, or moving adjustment journals from Oracle Hyperion Financial Management to ERP Systems like Oracle E-Business Suite or Peoplesoft. Other target systems still need to use a custom application framework.

POV Locking

New POV lock options are available in this release that enable you to lock the POV for all locations or to lock the POV for an individual location. Locking the POV prevents locations from modifying the data. When a location has been locked for a particular period or category, users cannot import, validate, export, or rerun the validation report.

Data in a locked POV can only be loaded when the locked POV is “unlocked.”

Import Format Builder

A new Import Format Builder feature has been added in this release to Import Formats. When the source system is a file-based data load, use the Import Format Builder feature to map source fields graphically to target dimension members instead of typing the starting position and the field length. This feature is available for both fixed and delimited files.

Concatenating Source Dimensions for ERP Segments

In Import Formats you can now concatenate an unlimited number of ERP segments and define mappings on the concatenated code combinations.

Previously the concatenation limit was 5 segments.

New Fix Mapping Feature

In the Data Load Workbench, you now have the option to view mapping errors and fix them instantly when mapping errors have occurred.

Report Translation

You can now view report descriptions and parameters in the language selected for your user interface. Language templates are available at: C:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\products\FinancialDataQuality\templates for you to select and associate with a report definition.

Financial Close Management Integration with FDMEE

As part of the overall Financial Close process, Oracle Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management, Enterprise Edition enables a data load from ERP systems and files to EPM Applications. Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management, which manages the period end close activities, initiates data load activities within Financial Close Management. As the financial close processes are time-bound and work flow driven, Financial Close Management users trigger the processes based on task alerts and notifications.

In this release, integration between FDMEE and Financial Close Management is achieved by using the interactive mode. This type of intergration enables Financial Close Management users to reach the Data Load Workbench component of FDMEE by clicking a task link (URL) in Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management.
