Manage Application Implementation: Overview
The Manage Applications Implementation business process enables rapid and efficient planning, configuration, implementation, deployment, and ongoing maintenance of Oracle Fusion applications through self-service administration.
The Setup and Maintenance work area offers you the following benefits:
Prepackaged lists of implementation tasks
Task lists can be easily configured and extended to better fit with business requirements. Auto-generated, sequential task lists include prerequisites and address dependencies to give full visibility to end-to-end setup requirements of Oracle Fusion applications.
Specific implementations can become templates to facilitate reuse and rapid-start of consistent Oracle Fusion applications setup across many instances.
A set of built-in reports helps to analyze, validate and audit configurations, implementations, and setup data of Oracle Fusion applications.
With Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager you can:
Learn about and analyze implementation requirements.
Configure Oracle Fusion applications to match your business needs.
Get complete visibility to setup requirements through guided, sequential task lists downloadable into Excel for project planning.
Enter setup data through easy-to-use user interfaces available directly from the task lists.

There are primarily three types of business application users that will make use of Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager through the Setup and Maintenance work area.
Implementation project managers are typically responsible for the overall implementation of an Oracle Fusion application. They research and analyze the functionality of Fusion offerings and match them to the business requirements of the implementation. They also determine what setup tasks need to be performed and who will perform them to make an Oracle Fusion application ready for transactional processing.
Functional users are representatives from various lines of business of a company and are subject matter experts in their functional areas. They are the financial administrators, procurement managers, sales operations representatives, and benefits administrators. Typically, they will be responsible for entering setup data and then verifying that the applications are working correctly for the transactional processes.
System administrators typically come with technical background and are responsible for software installation, systems configuration, and data migration. The export and import of setup data will usually be performed by system administrators.
