Fusion Project Strategy Notes

Fri, 03 Feb 2006 09:39:39 GMT

Earlier last month I listened in on an Oracle call addressing how the company was addressing their promised "Fusion" product. It was more-or-less a status update that did not really specify any juicy details of the product suite, but it did provide some perspective on how the company was architecting for the future. The key elements that I drew from the call were: - Restated life-time support for products, but still didn't state the fine print. We will see where/how this promise is kept in t

Oracle - Fusion and Terminology

Fri, 04 Nov 2005 09:08:08 GMT

It's been some time since my last posting, but I've been very busy preparing to bring up Oracle Self-Service here at my client. I am now officially through the requirements phase (even though I've been in the build phase for over a month now) since I have signed-off requirements documents. I'm currently in the build phase of the project, and it is very tedious and stressful(as it usually is). My developers are diligently trying to close gaps and complete the conversion process, but there is s

Oracle Openworld - Impressions from the front line

Wed, 21 Sep 2005 20:37:37 GMT

Wow! What a difference a year makes.... I'm out here at the Oracle conference and I can't help but compare this event to PeopleSoft Connect. This event has the attendance of a small city. Everywhere you look you have long lines to get into sessions, go to the bathroom, get lunch, etc. much different than last year at Connect because Connect was a third of the size. Attendance at the sessions that I preregistered for is very difficult since Oracle has not only moved the session location, bu

Who's on first? What's on second? - Difficulty of Version Control on install

Fri, 16 Sep 2005 09:08:08 GMT

The first question that you have to ask yourself before installing the Oracle HRMS application is what version/release do you want to install? Like PeopleSoft, Oracle is continually supplying patches/fixes to resolve issues with their software. These patches are bundled into Family Packs or what I have heard call CU2 release. Knowing that there is a latest family pack or CU release is the first step, then you have to figure out what patches you need to apply. This is where the fun starts bec

Flexibility and Complexity - Risk versus Reward Tradeoff

Wed, 07 Sep 2005 09:00:00 GMT

One major item that differentiates Oracle from PeopleSoft, is Oracle's flexibility of it's product to adapt to a client's business needs. For example, the flexibility displayed in the Advanced Benefits functionality for determining eligibility is vast. You can attach an eligibility profile to a program, plan type (like health plans), option, coverage and so on. PeopleSoft was good at providing flexibility too, but not to this degree. Within Oracle, you can configure eligibility on almost ev

Oracle HRMS - Is it a Lime or a Lemon?

Wed, 24 Aug 2005 09:04:04 GMT

For those of you who are passionate Oracle HRMS supporters/implementors that are ready to send me flaming comments, please hold off till I explain my opening title, then you can go ahead and send me mean comments. Being a PeopleSoft HRMS expert, I know that product in and out, but Oracle HRMS is new to me. The requirements gathering process is roughly the same steps needed to figure out what data the client would like to have in the system, how they would use the system, etc. But that is wher

Getting my feet wet with Oracle

Mon, 15 Aug 2005 09:09:09 GMT

From my experience in setting up a test benefit program in the Oracle Vision instance, Oracle's Advanced Benefits module isn't all that much different than PeopleSoft's Benefits Administration module setup. A couple of differences I've seen so far is that Oracle is drastically flexible in what it can do, but his flexibility comes at a cost. The configuration for life events seems much harder to implement in Oracle since there are a lot more set up steps(configuratino items) than PeopleSoft'

Oracle's Implmentation Methodology - Lower your expectations!

Fri, 05 Aug 2005 09:07:07 GMT

I started looking into Oracle's Implementation Methodology this is named "AIM". The templates that are delivered by Oracle in this methodology are many, many documents. But most of these docs delivers are nothing but formatted shells for you to populate. The only thing that is helpful is that they have the same look and feel(because they are all copied from a starting doc and the deliverable names have been changed), but since we have to change the formatting of all of our docs to include the

Believe none of what you read and half of what you see!!!

Tue, 02 Aug 2005 14:46:46 GMT

An old saying "Believe none of what you read and half of what you see" came to mind to me today when discussing Oracle eBusiness app functionality with my fellow Oracle Implementors(who are very experienced with the application). It seems as though Oracle is just like PeopleSoft in marketing some features that are "Not ready for prime-time". They just don't work out of the box. I still don't have my hands on the app yet, it seems as though our Vision database install(Oracle's version of HRD

Oracle Implementation - Beginning of a Journey

Thu, 21 Jul 2005 13:32:32 GMT

BEGINNING OF A JOURNEY I took the red pill from Morpheous's hand. Have you ever realized that getting what you asked for might NOT really be what you wanted in the first place? I'm about to find the answer to this question somewhere over the next six months, as I go through the process of implementing Oracle's HRMS product. I'm not sure what to expect of the upcoming months, but I'm sure it will be full of surprises and challenges. Over the course of the next many months I will be r
