OpenWorld is this month, so time to start planning your agenda. I’ll be presenting at a few different sessions this year with a focus on Financials Cloud (Part of the ERP Cloud) and E-Business Suite.
I’m busy preparing for the first two sessions, hope to see you there. Check out the content catalog for more details and to add them to your agenda.

This session discusses how to leverage powerful modern reporting tools with no disruption to your existing Oracle E-Business Suite implementation.

Extensibility and admin personalization of Oracle ERP Cloud experiences include a range of tools, from a simplified approach for rebranding the applications, to match your company culture and image to page-level admin personalization and extension, to building your own simplified cloud application in platform as a service using the UX Rapid Development Kit (RDK).

I promised my 9 year old son that I would run the school 5K fun run with him, little did I know it would clash with Oracle OpenWorld. I had a 5k run at 10am in Belmont and then a presentation to the OAUG GL Special Interest Group at 11am 20 mile sNorth in San Francisco. I was worried about the pace my son could do but we managed to average 9.5 minute miles even with a stop to tie a shoe lace and a lot of traffic of all ages and speeds. We had just enough time snap the picture below and then he went for the pancake breakfast with the rest of his friends and I ran another half mile to my car and headed to the Moscone Center. No time to change and straight up on stage, with 10 minutes to spare before I was due to speak. After that I caught up with a colleague who’s here from the UK over lunch and was home in time to upgrade my son’s home minecraft server to 1.8, write a blog and check on my demos for tomorrow’s Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) EXPO.
Only one of us got to stay for the pancake breakfast
No time to change, straight on stage and waiting to present.
later this evening I was pleased to see this tweet from Steve Miranda, our EVP who is also balancing his heavy workload at OpenWorld with family commitments too.
Steve makes time for family too.
So all in all a good day, here’s hoping the rest of the week is just as enjoyable.

I registered with WordPress.com for this blog six years ago today. My first post was a review of my social calendar for OOW 2007, taking a swipe at Chevy’s, Elton John and Budweiser. I went on to post 12 times in the remaining 13 days of November, including the now legendary Intercompany Vs Intracompany, it is still the most viewed post on my blog and has amassed 81,331 onsite view to date, which amazes me. My second most popular post of all time is How do I define my Legal Entities? with 28,690 views and that post is also the most commented on post ever on my blog. So I clearly did my most popular work in the first two weeks and have ridden that wave ever since.
So six years on I found inspiration at Oracle Open World again this year and am trying to get my blogging frequency up again, I have plenty of content in my mind, but it is finding the time and energy to form it into meaningful and digestible blog posts that takes the time.

I’ve been preparing these for a presentation at Oracle OpenWorld next week, they were mostly taken from the questions asked by Alyssa Johnson in her comment, but they are very typical questions that I get asked a lot.
What is the difference between the 11i GRE/LE and R12 LE?
- GRE/LE is upgraded as an LE in R12
- In 11i GRE/LE was often a dummy LE, not real LE structure and had little use
- R12 LE has a more robust definition
- R12 LE is used more by processes and reports across financials
Where does the LE impact R12 processing?
- Short answer – Tax, Intercompany (AGIS), Global Features
Why should I assign BSVs to my LEs in the Ledger?
- It is optional, if your BSV is your company code, you have an implied LE there in your GL
- It helps with some LE derivation for transaction stamping
- Allows you to run reports by LE
- May make Intercompany rules easier to define
In 11i, the LE doesn’t really correspond to the true Legal Entities of the Organization (e.g. only one LE is setup even though there are multiple companies). What is going to break in R12 if I leave it that way?
- Nothing will break if you do nothing and stay with one ‘dummy’ LE
- You won’t get all the good stuff we talked about earlier
Is there a connection between the LE and the BU?
- If you map LE to Ledgers / BSV, there is an indirect LE-OU relationship
- There is a Default Legal Entity for an OU (Default Legal Context) which in some cases(1:1:1) it will be the only LE so it is a direct assingment
If you want to add anything to this, or have more questions then fine the comments section below…

I was perusing the statistics that wordpress.com provides for this blog and was interested to learn that the most commented on post, with a whopping 69 comments, is the classic from November 2007 – How do I define my Legal Entities? . It has also received 18,449 page views which is the second most viewed post on this blog. My conclusion is that people are interested in this topic and want to learn more, so I thought I would mention the OAUG GL SIG meeting at OpenWorld where I have been asked to make a short presentation about Legal Entities, essential details are:
||OAUG General Ledger SIG
||Sunday, 04:00 PM, Moscone West – 3005
||The OAUG General Ledger SIG is a worldwide community of professionals engaged in the use of record-to-report business processes. Group members are business users, consultants, and support members engaged in the use of Oracle General Ledger.
This session focuses on Oracle Fusion Financials’ General Ledger feature, the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12+ update, and the Oracle Financials release roadmap.
I have just started to think about preparing slides and I thought that rather than actually work on them, I would blog and see if anyone had ideas on the type of thing I should talk about (the hip crowd would call it crowd sourcing). It’s been almost 4 years since that post, so let me know in the comments what more information you would like on Legal Entities in Oracle Apps.
The comments section is just down below, past all the widgets asking you to like the post and share it…
