November 2020 Update

Revision History

This document will continue to evolve as existing sections change and new information is added. All updates appear in the following table:

Date Product Feature Notes
29 OCT 2020     Created initial document.

Overview

This document outlines the upcoming Enterprise Data Management Cloud update.

Feature Summary

Column Definitions:

Features Delivered Enabled

Report = New or modified, Oracle-delivered, ready to run reports.

UI or Process-Based: Small Scale = These UI or process-based features are typically comprised of minor field, validation, or program changes. Therefore, the potential impact to users is minimal.

UI or Process-Based: Larger Scale* = These UI or process-based features have more complex designs. Therefore, the potential impact to users is higher.

Features Delivered Disabled = Action is needed BEFORE these features can be used by END USERS. These features are delivered disabled and you choose if and when to enable them. For example, a) new or expanded BI subject areas need to first be incorporated into reports, b) Integration is required to utilize new web services, or c) features must be assigned to user roles before they can be accessed.

Ready for Use by End Users
(Features Delivered Enabled)

Reports plus Small Scale UI or Process-Based new features will have minimal user impact after an update. Therefore, customer acceptance testing should focus on the Larger Scale UI or Process-Based* new features.

Action is Needed BEFORE Use by End Users
(Features Delivered Disabled)

Not disruptive as action is required to make these features ready to use. As you selectively choose to leverage, you set your test and roll out timing.

Additionally, all available user information is displayed in search results.

IMPORTANT Actions and Considerations

FUTURE AVAILABILITY OF THE REDWOOD THEME FOR ENTERPRISE DATA MANAGEMENT

In the December (20.12) update, Enterprise Data Management Cloud will offer a new Redwood appearance theme, in addition to the existing 2 themes available. The Redwood theme gives an enhanced look and feel in terms of colors and icons and brings consistency across Oracle Cloud.

CHROME 86 AND CHROMIUM EDGE 86 BROWSERS

Due to recent changes in the Chrome 86 and Chromium Edge 86 browsers, you may see buttons that are not aligned on the right hand side. Oracle is aware of this behavior change in these browsers and is working to retrofit our user interface to resolve these issues.
