Anyone who reads my blog regularly might be tired of me praising user groups, but I believe it is worth repeating myself. The type of information sharing you get from user groups is unique and very valuable, it is important for Oracle to support that, be aware of it, but not interfere. I have been involved with the Oracle Apps User Group via the GL SIG for several years now but I will never push my agenda, I listen, provide information or presentations that are requested and I learn. Many of my colleagues will tell you the same. So Sunday is User Group day at OpenWorld and I look forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces and learning something new. I have a bit of a schedule crunch this year, 12 months ago I committed to run the 5k “Dolphin Dash” School fundraiser with my 8 year old son, I didn’t think for a minute it would fall on the same date as OpenWorld. So I have to run a 5k at 9am and then dash into San Francisco to present at the GL SIG for 11am, if I arrive in my running gear, still sweating please accept my apologies. I will stay around for more of the sessions and always I will be active on twitter, so you can find me that way too.
At the GL SIG I’ll be talking about and briefly showing the new Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud Service, which I am very excited about. You will also hear from Lakshmi Sampath from Dell about SLA on their upgrade to R12. The full agenda is below, I hope to see a lot of you there.

In the past many oracle apps customers have looked elsewhere for their reporting needs – until now – see a preview of “Accounting Hub Reporting Cloud Service”. See how many finance users are using their favorite tools for reporting – Smartview, Cubes, and related functionality to get their financials. Fusion Account Hub Reporting Cloud Service is a new subscription service provides out of the box integration with EBS R12 General Ledger for reporting. This session will provide an introduction to the new service, how it connects, works with EBS data, the reporting capabilities available and what it does and does not support. Come listen to David Haimes, Senior Director, Financials Product Development t alk about the new service.
Hear what Lakshmi Sampath from Dell has to say about their upgrade to R12. The presentation covers the R12 Upgrade Case-Study at Dell providing details on what happens during upgrade to R12 in various subledgers (PO, AP, AR, PA, FA) with respect to SLA. This presentation will also provide details on strategies for data conversion to SLA model during upgrade, and cover critical lessons learned during the upgrade @ DELL.
