    Hi Aidan & John
    First I would like to express my appreciation to both of you for this course. I have attended oracle courses and nothing is like what you offer. The course is well structured and the presentation is well beyond my expectation.
    The other thing that I am very grateful about is the follow up you do with your delegates after the course is over. This is another plus compared to what we have out there.
    Therefore my experience with you is very good and the course is worthwhile.
    I would like to recommend:
    Functional Consultant Launch Formula Training
    Functional Consultant Launch Formula Personal Coaching you to anyone thinking of becoming an oracle functional consultant.
    Thanks,

    Dear John and Aidan,

    The course was well structured and I have been very impressed with the knowledge that the presenters have on the different Oracle modules.

    Very good high level tutorial on functional aspects and i learnt many processes in SDLC.

    I recommend this course for everyone who wanted to become a successful functional consultant.

    Thanks,
    Murali.

    So Bala is asking when it comes to the future process model, should it be signed off or will it be signed off before implementation?

      Yeah, every process at each level should have an owner. And so the order to cash process will be owned by probably the head of sales and the head of accounts receivable. Record to report will be owned by probably the financial controller. And then all the finance processes together will probably be owned by the CFO. Well what’s important during the scoping of the process phase, the RD.011 phase, is that you need to agree the ownership of all the processes before you go in because part of the thing that you need to understand is the stakeholders are involved, who owns what process. And in order to run the workshops, the owners of the processes need to be able to a) attend the workshop, or give you their nominees and identify the people who are in their team or department who are actually executing those processes so you can engage with the uses on them

    In relation to future processes, are the details of these processes captured in meetings with the relevant lead side of the business?

      Yes. So now we are describing right for this project — what you’ll often find is that these processes already exist, so they have been captured by the original implementation and recorded there. So you wouldn’t be expected to go and redraw them all, but you would be expected to be able to read one and understand what it’s talking about. But no, you won’t be expected to redraw it because it would have already been captured. If you’re doing a green-field implementation, then part of the job of the functional consultant when you walk up to the client would be to be able to draw these diagrams in concert with the client during a workshop, okay.

    If you record future requirements on the Moscow list, is this not like changing the goalposts and would it have any impact on the work that was carried so far?

    Reply

      No. Because what you do is, what the project managers during the project would do is that they — during the initial release of the scope of what you’re actually building, you’d only actually work on the must haves and should haves, the could haves. Won’t have — well, won’t haves are never going to be done. But the could haves are put down to the bottom of the list and it would often be agreed that they won’t be actually implemented in the current iteration or release of the project that you’re doing.

      But why it’s interesting to note those things actually is because they’ve been identified as requirements and as the more higher priority requirements are been implemented and moved in transition into production, some of lower priority requirements may well be picked up and carried forward in new project put in place to implement those things.

      So it’s good idea to keep an eye on the RD.045, the MoSCoW list to see what’s coming in the work stack for our client.

    Can the COTS MoSCoW list become agile down the line of implementation?

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:29
      Permalink

      Yes, it can actually and sometimes with an agile implementation as well. And some of these new — as opposed to being a requirements-driven solution, you do a solution-driven project rather like the new Oracle Cloud functionality, it’s not really a requirements-driven implementation, it’s solution-driven. The requirement is Oracle Cloud — Oracle Financials Cloud.

      There’s no other requirement, it’s like buying a Microsoft product. When you go into the shop with a Microsoft product, you don’t show up with your long spreadsheet with a 150 different requirements of I want to be able to use this particular font and drag-and-drop and have crazy formulas. Your requirement is to buy Microsoft Excel, that’s the way Oracle is going.

      So to a certain extent the MoSCoW list can turn into a bit of a sprint list, a hit list for agile methodologies, okay.

    is this rd.001 Business and System Objectives document equivalent to the old RD.020 and the AIM set?

      So if I look at the OUM, the mapping documents, which I think I sent by e-mail, basically this is the system objectives. It’s roughly equivalent to the AP.010 and the BP.010, so the executive project strategy and the business and the process strategy.

    Do Oracle provide a template of the rd.001 Business and System Objectives document?

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:27
      Permalink

      So basically John what we’ve done is, Oracle has provided the OUM, the Oracle Unified Method document set. If you’re licensed to own it, they’d give you a set of templates but the templates are pretty much empty. All they give — on this page for instance would be 7, 7.1 and 7.2.

      So what we’ve done is we’ve filled in the templates based on the real-life business scenario so that you could – if you have a corresponding scenario in your own work, you could see what we’ve done. Look at the scenario, then what we’ve had and see how we filled in the documents, the processes and our strategies that we’ve gone through.

      So effectively if we give you the template of the document, it would be empty. It wouldn’t contain anything. So we’re giving you the documents that are suitable for this real-life scenario. So you’re getting that extra value there, okay.

    At the objectives stage are you’re interested in customization, whether the objective is going to be met by customization versus standard functionality.

      You are not even there yet. At the moment you’re at a very high level at the moment in this document. This document is always talking about the highest level. So for example one the objectives I’m showing down there, system objectives at a very high level would be all the interfaces have to be in drachma, okay. We’re not saying whether you need to customize something or whether we need to customize the application. What we’re actually saying is, this is what I want to happen. How we do it? We don’t know yet. That’s what happens.

      We should be very careful when we do requirements of falling into the trap, and it’s very easy to do because we all want to help designing the solution whilst eliciting the requirements. And I would strongly encourage you that when you’re doing requirements gathering with your clients, try and steer them away from doing solution design during meetings when it all start to twirl during the meeting saying, oh, if we did this, if we did that, if we do that. What you want to try and do is bring them back into the room again, say, “What we’re trying to do here is to write down what it is we need, not how we do it.”

    Do the clients provide the key drivers for the business objectives or whether the functional consultant provides the key driver?

      John
      It’s often a combination. The client will first say what they are and what you’ll often do is help to boil down what it is, what it is they actually mean. So it’s a collaboration. You’re listening, you’re hearing to what they say and you’re recording the key drivers. So lots of those don’t reason for our documentation we do on these projects, for functional consultants in particular. But requirements is reflecting back what the client has asked you, writing it down and kind of saying, “Are you sure, is this what you meant, is my understanding of what you’re asking correct?” And you basically you do that by writing it down in these kinds of documents which gets signed off formally, okay. Does that help?
      Aidan
      I guess basically in terms of responsibility, the functional consultant, the senior functional consultant would have the responsibility of producing the document but his role is kind of to elicit or obtain the requirements from the business. The business have the responsibility of providing the objective side for this document. And just the functional consultant kind of makes them clear and uses the conversations that he has had with other members of the business to sort of double check the clarity of the business objectives.

    Can you explain how other tools are used in a project like the likes of Toad and Web ADI.

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:21
      Permalink

      John
      Yeah, those are used actually. So the Toad is often used by functional consultants actually to do some rudimentary data manipulation and interrogation. You might use it when you are preparing upload scripts and doing data conversion type work.

      And Web ADIs are often used as well actually in terms of being used to load journals and stuff from subsystems and recurring stuff can go on via the Web ADI.

      The other things you need to be good at actually to be honest as a functional consultant, especially in the earlier phases of the project, towards the top left and the left of the quadrant is the dreaded MS Office tools actually. So be proficient with Visio because you need to be able to draw process diagrams, PowerPoint skills be able to write a presentation in a coherent way. So skills with those areas really as well are important. As well as the kind of the stuff at the technical-end, which would be Toad and Web ADI, ConfigSnapshot is another one actually.
      Aidan
      Mercy one of the bonuses that we’re providing on the course is the course notes from MySQL for Oracle functional consultant. So I’ll be sending on the bonuses this week, okay. And included in the course notes is a little bit about Toad, how to use Toad, and also the use of SQL as a functional consultant. So that’s a useful thing that you guys can look through.

    In most projects, will there be just one or more than one functional consultant on a project?

      It can also happen. It depends on the size of the project actually. So often on some very large projects the order to cash workflow, the one we’re looking at the moment, may well be broken up into several pieces. You’d have someone who specializes in order management, someone who specializes in cash and collections, someone who specializes in revenue accounting and invoicing. So that’s three people, but with a smaller implementation on say during the support phase of a project, you might only have one person who covers all three areas.

      It depends on the size of the client actually. And you well may actually find on some projects one person may cover a couple of flows. You could be covering record to report and order to cash or purchase to pay and record to report.
      No, not really, okay. It can be complicated in some areas. But the best thing to do is to find your niche really and really drill into it and read up. There’s no substitute for reading, I have to say. It is your own preparation and reading the stuff and understanding, and trying to gain an understanding of what you’re reading, and also not being afraid to ask another person on your project.

      When you want a bit of guidance on something, find someone on the project, you know, a senior guy you can hook into as a mentor and say, “Excuse me, would you mind taking me through this little piece here? I’m struggling a little bit with that bit. I know this bit really, really well and this project is extending me into this area. Could you give me a better guidance and advice?”
      Aidan
      Yeah because I guess what I found out — I was transferring in from a technical to functional on the order to cash flow and I did the thing that I was afraid of. I was unsure of my functional skills and I was quite afraid of a room full of experienced consultants in the same area pointing their finger at me going that’s wrong, that’s wrong, that’s wrong, but that’s just — it doesn’t happen effectively

      So APQC is like a kind of a repository of business process excellence. So it’s kind of the domain where an Oracle functional consultant starts to cross over into being a management consultant.

      It’s kind of where I am in my own career actually. So I’m kind of moving further and further to the left on this continuum and really drilling into like objectives and requirements piece and becoming not just a business analyst, a management consultant and providing advice on strategic objectives for an organization. And you can use the APQC collateral to support you in that endeavor as well.

      One of the other things that the APQC has in it as well is this stuff about benchmarking. And you might hear this mentioned a lot on projects, about objectives and benchmarking and it’s saying that — okay, how do we know that where in the top quartile for organizations or telcos in North America on invoice processing, cash collection, days sales outstanding type queries. APQC have collected metrics from lots of organizations around the world and in different industry sectors and regions and make these available through their website.

      They don’t necessarily make them available to individuals like ourselves. Often you can get access to them through the organization you’re currently working for. So if you are working for a big pharma, they would probably have a subscription to APQC. If you’re working for like a telco, they may have a subscription. Or your current organization you’re working with will probably have a subscription to that stuff through their process excellence work stream that they got set up.

      Anybody who is engaged in any kind of process improvement stuff would be involved in APQC. So if you’re coming at the functional quadrant from the business, this will be a good way of breaking into it.

    Can you explain or talk about what the non-functional requirements for Oracle EBS are?

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:16
      Permalink

      Yeah we have set of definitions, don’t we actually? In the white-paper I believe on the other roles in each of these areas. So perhaps that will go some way to answering some of your questions in that area of the other roles you are going to be interacting with.

      And when you look at those other roles as well, you may well see areas where you feel you could specialize in that area yourself or re-brand yourself into the area. Like I was mentioning before about tester or a test manager is often viewed as being a specialist role on a project, especially on large projects. But on other projects, test management is viewed as being a functional consultant’s job and not necessarily a specialist role.

      So we can look at that as well. Well, what would encourage you as well, as Aidan said, is to use those community pages to put up some of these thoughts actually and we can branch out into some of that stuff away from the core course material through that route as well and develop, you know, some feedback loop in that regard that way.

    How can an Oracle user get the OUM templates for personal use?

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:15
      Permalink

      Okay. Unfortunately, Oracle do not release this anymore. You either have to be with a client who has got a license to use it and then you can get it. Or working for a consultancy who’ve got a license to use it and they’ll let you download it. Or you need to be Oracle Gold Partner or above like Aidan and myself.
      We can share with you some of these documents under the terms of our license that we’ve completed to illustrate this project. But we can’t share with you a full download of Oracle OUM, our license prevents us from doing that. If you wanted to register yourself as an Oracle Gold Partner, your business, and pay the subscription and that gives you access to this material. Does that answer the question?
      What we intend to do in the deep-dive sessions is fill out some of these documents for the specific real-life scenario that we have. And once we fill out these documents, we can distribute them down to you but we just can’t give out the whole set as John said

    Will every project have to go through all of the same steps and the requirements?

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:12
      Permalink

      No, they wouldn’t really. It depends on the project as well and on the requirement. And often when you’re building, you’re agreeing a project and you are scoping out the work in a project. One of the first things that goes on is a project manager in concert with his functional lead and a system architect or a solution architect would start to frame the work that you are going to do on the project and part of the agreement. And depending on the scope, you may need to build a future process model.

      For example on our scenario because we’re talking about fixing an issue with a currency, we aren’t really going to need a future process model because the current process model that they’re operating under would fit the scenario. What’s changed is the currency so the process hasn’t changed, it’s just the currency that’s changed. So we wouldn’t necessarily need to do a future process model on that project.

    What do you mean by interface?

    Reply
    • June 16, 2015 at 15:08
      Permalink

      John
      An interface, an interface would be a piece of software between a third-party system and the core Oracle system for example.

      So say for example you are with a client and their footprint is utility, a telephone company like in our scenario, and they have a billing platform that sends out all the telephone bills. You got your telephone bill I guess from, I don’t know who your provider is, from Vodafone or Verizon or AT&T or Telecom Italia that lists all your calls. That’s generated by the billing engine. It’s often not in an Oracle system, but the accounts receivable, the revenue for that needs to be booked and accounted for correctly. So there will be an interface from that billing platform that sends the transactions through a flat file often into an interface Oracle and are imported, and that’s what an interface could be called. Is that a good definition Aidan?
      Aidan
      An interface is a program used to transmit data from one area of oracle to another
      so from Orde Management to REceivables
      or Receivables to GL
      it can also mean from external systems into Oracke
      or from Oracle to external systems
      functional consultants create designs for interfaces, but not the code
      oracle provides a set of interfaces as standard between their modules, so they work out of the box
      any interfaces with external are created if required for each project

    Bit of advice please.

    Under 11i there was the facility to set up “Intercompany/ Clearing Company” account code combinations. Navigation path was under Set up>Accounts>Intercompany.

    Do you guys know under which menu option will this be under R12?

      In general I think its a good thing, especially without experience. I can’t say in your local market, you would have to review job specs and talk to recruiters to be sure. I imagine it would be a useful addition if you have switched careers; you should consider it. Oracle University offers certification, yes. What areas are you thinking of specializing in? Of your current experience, where would you see the most suitable area of Oracle EBS?

      Hi Mercy
      This is not much to go on, but I know some job ads are like that.
      Functional AGIS/GL
      This means they are looking at an Oracle standard module Advanced Global Intercompany system. Link https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e13482/T470398T470404.htm , and General Ledger module. Intercompany system is used to create, settle and reconcile intercompany transactions between international entities of the same corporation. It is common in multinationals with entities in different countries/markets. Buying and selling of products or services is common in multinationals as different parts of the business support each other, and can sometimes be part of the same international supply chain.
      For instance Ameritel France makes a piece of telecoms equipment, sells it to Ameritel Germany, who add a software front-end to the equipment, before selling it to Ameritel Greece, who sell it to the end customer. Ameritel has a seperate entity in each country, and intercompany transactions(AR/AP) are recorded between each entity at every stage of the transaction.
      GL experience suggests experience of how the accounting of these AR & AP are created and posted into GL.

    Hi Every Body,
    Its Siddique here.
    I have one question.
    Suppose a programmer has developed one standard software for accounts and he use to sell his software to different firms. What I have observed is the key actors / key users they did not understand the software properly how it will fit to their business process instead they will ask for too many customizations or changes and finally I have seen the project fails. Because in practical management/stake holders thinks the software should be fit appropriately as per the thoughts of their key users because they have to run the future process. I believe all these complications will have to be addressed and solved through workshop techniques?

    In Oracle EBS study material there is one point I’m not cleared about that or I want to understand in a better way, will you kindly explain me the following point.

    Understanding the Oracle Applications R12.x Architecture

    It is easy to talk about the technical architecture of R12.x EBS at the very first. In fact, most presentations on R12.x architecture do just that. But, the technical architecture is important to support the business needs of R12.x E-Business Suite.

    It is in fact, the business architecture that supports the business needs of the company. Though it may seem to be just a marketing issue, in an integrated E-Business Suite, the software must support the business needs by being engineered to do so from the start.

    It is only after the business needs have been addressed that the technical architecture can be determined. In most cases, the technical architecture will be dictated by the business needs. If you do not use this engineering approach, your technical architecture will dictate the business needs that you can fulfill.

    Thank you,
    Regards
    Siddique

      Hi Siddique

      In answer to question one, Oracle EBS is a little different than creation of a software product from scratch, but your point is good. In Oracle EBS, we would resolve this in workshops, yes. Creation of the Moscow list(rd.045) lists what the solution must, could, should and wont have. Standard solutions is preferred, as customizations are expensive to design, maintain, support. With the advent of Oracle cloud, there are NO customizations alllowed whatsoever, so this takes that option completely off the table.

      With regard to your second question, Oracle Applications R12.x Architecture, Oracle EBS is setup already with technical architecture in place. You are correct to say Business architecture should dictate technical architecture not the other way around.

      Regards,

    Although l missed the first session,just want to let people know that, what we are getting here is awesome.You can never get it anywhere. I was on a project for a couple of years.After the project i noticed quickly that there were gaps in my knowledge which needed to be bridged much quickly. I benefited from the slides on Business Process Flow, since this tend to come up on most interviews.Thanks to Aidan and John

      Hi Daniel
      Thanks for your comment.
      As you point out, even with good experience you won’t typically have worked with all of the subjects covered in the program. We are trying to give you a good head start in all areas, so you can stand out from the average candidate in interviews.
      Regards,
      Aidan.

      Hi Mercy
      We covered the R2R, O2C and P2P business process flows in Session 1 – Introduction, slides 11-14, with more detail in the RD.011 Future Process model work product from the same slide deck. Underlying technical architecture/table structure usually means a knowledge of how to select the data from the tables using SQL.
      SQL is a powerful tool in functional consultant’s armoury, as it allows retrieval and analysis of data from many tables together, and easy analysis in Excel. A functional consultant with good command of SQL can look at data in core tables not easily available in standard reports, and make better decisions as a result.
      For each screen in application front-end, there is a view(set of joined tables) that contain the data. Selecting data from the view, or from associated tables gives you a lot of flexibility when analyzing issues or patterns.
      Have a look at the SQL course in the program bonuses, which goes into this area in great detail.
      Does that answer your question?
      Aidan.

    Hi,
    Its Siddique here, I wanted to introduce myself.

    I live in Bangalore, India. Basically I am from accounts field, in the year 2008 I was completed the Oracle Financials 11i course from Oracle University in basic five modules GL, AP, AR, CM & AM. I was worked hard on the course and I have sacrificed my sleep and many more things at that stage. Unfortunately I was not successful and I did not get any break in to Oracle because I do not had any relevant experience on that after so much of struggle I lost my heart. But “I Love Oracle” still I hope I will make my way in to Oracle.

    No doubt there is a huge gap between me and Oracle but I hope that I can fill the gap through Mr. Aidan’s program “Functional Consultant Launch Formula” and this will be a great hope for me and I will try to work hard on this.

    I’m a family man with three children one girl and two boys. My elder son and my daughter are studying in primary and my younger son is only 18 months old.

    I want to say don’t loose the heart still opportunities will be there keep on working.

    Thank you
    Best Regards
    Siddique

    Hi
    Its Aidan here, I wanted to introduce myself.

    I live in Dublin, Ireland and I’ve been working with Oracle products for 20 years now, it sure doesn’t seem like that long but the years fly by. I became an independent consultant in 1999, my first contract was with Oracle European HQ in London. I’ve lived or worked(or both) in UK, Scotland, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Portugal, Netherlands. I work from my own house these days, occasionally from the local office here in Dublin. I’m a family man with a boy and a girl under four so things are busy :)

    I wanted to say I’m personally looking forward to starting the program, getting to know you all better, and seeing your transformation towards Functional Consulting.
    Take it easy
    Aidan.
