Initial Document Creation

Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud, June Update

This document outlines announcements, new features, considerations and defects fixed in the upcoming Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud update.

Announcements and New Features

Monthly Update Schedule

We would like to inform you of the upcoming monthly update for your Cloud environments. We will apply the latest updates to your test environment on Friday, June 2, 2017 and to your production environment on Friday, June 16, 2017. The update will be applied during your scheduled daily maintenance window.

The Oracle Help Center, where you can find documentation, videos and useful information about Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service, will also be updated on June 9, 2017 to reflect the new functionality.

Disclosure Management

The Oracle Disclosure Management Option for Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud, available for use under a separate license, allows users to develop their regulatory filings in a unified, collaborative environment. SEC filers, for example, may generate both XBRL and EDGAR HTML filing outputs from the same source, ensuring 100% validation of XBRL filings. It also emphasizes reuse and efficiency through its easy-to-use rollover process, providing XBRL tag migration and variable-driven smart text.

With this option, you can upload a Disclosure Management report to the Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud library so you can open it in Oracle Smart View for Office. For example, use a Microsoft Word file as your starting point for your Disclosure Management report. For more information on Disclosure Management, see “About Disclosure Management” in the Oracle® Cloud Working with Disclosure Management for Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud guide.

Note: For clients reporting to Colombian regulators, integration with Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud occurs through the HVX connection on the Excel ribbon. You open the regulator’s Microsoft Office Excel workbook directly in Smart View and enter through the High Volume XBRL tab on the ribbon.

NOTE: Bidirectional language functionality is not supported in Disclosure Management for this release.

Permissions

NOTE: Starting in July, Report Packages and Management Reports will inherit Permissions from their parent folders when Inheritance is turned on. (By default, Inheritance for Report Packages is turned off at creation.) This enhancement will provide a simplified and convenient approach to managing artifact access. You should review access assignments for Management Reports and Report Packages in the Library for these artifacts in advance of the scheduled July 2017 update and make any necessary adjustments. For any Report Packages or Management Reports that you do not wish to inherit permissions, simply de-select Inheritance in the Access tab in the Inspect window.

Oracle NetSuite Integration with the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud (EPM Cloud)

Data Management is now available as the integration mechanism for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud customers looking to load data from Oracle NetSuite. Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud customers now have direct access to Netsuite’s unified suite of cloud-based ERP, CRM and commerce applications. The integration uses the NetSuite Saved Search framework to query data from the NetSuite system, which includes pre-packaged or customer defined Saved Searches.
