Oracle extends Oracle Fusion Applications UPK


Oracle has recently added Oracle Fusion Applications Receivales to the available UPK's, which sets the counter to ten. UPK's can be downloaded from eDelivery.


A couple of days ago, we attended a live demo on Fusion Applications. One of the remarks from the audience was, that it would be impossible to create a decent UPK for Fusion Applications, because there is no "one-flow". From the current page, you can go to other pages through actions link; using the charts, you can drilldown into other content etc.

With ERP systems until now, the main focus was administering the process flow. Fusion Applications has, besides the standard back-end administration, also highly embedded analytics. Analytics and BI where always a separate application, with access to limited users. Let's be honest , if you were to present Fusion Applications, would you present the back-end process flow or the flashy analytics?

The UPK's focus on the back-end, since this is static flow. The analytics part, as stated by the remark from the audience, are not possible to capture in a UPK, because this is user specific.
