Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.0 - October 2017

Name of Product:

Oracle Financial Reporting 19.02 / 11.2

Product Description:

Oracle Financial Reporting (FR) enables book ­quality financial and management reporting targeted at meeting the unique requirements of the Finance department or any functional area that requires very highly formatted multidimensional reporting. This financial reporting solution can use EPM Cloud products (Planning and Budgeting Cloud, Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud, Financial Close and Consolidation Cloud, Profitability and Cost Management Cloud and Tax Reporting Cloud) as well as EPM on-premises products (Hyperion Financial Management, and Hyperion Planning) as data sources.

  • A graphical, object­ based interface enables the rapid creation of reports that combine grids of data and text, charts, graphs, and images. A library of reusable report components simplifies and streamlines the process of building and maintaining complex reports 
  • Users have complete control over layouts, formatting, fonts, and colors, as well as a flexible range of output options enabling wide distribution via print, HTML Web pages, PDF, and online viewing. A scalable, cross-­platform report server facilitates easy deployment to large user communities.
  • Reports and books can be dynamically scheduled, with the ability to generate and email separate report outputs for members in a dimension (bursting).

The FR version number for cloud deployments is 19.02, the FR version number for on-premises deployments is 11.2 

Note: In order to ensure that reports are accessible, FR report designers will need to enter alternate text for grids, charts, text boxes and images in the properties sheet in FR Web Studio, and enter a report description when saving a report. Please refer to the Financial Reporting Web Studio User's guide for additional details.
