Feature Summary

Column Definitions:

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
(Feature 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.

Customer Must Take Action before Use by End Users
(Feature 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.

Connectors

Oracle Object Storage Inbound Connector

You can leverage the cloud native Oracle Object Storage to ingest data into Unity.

This feature allows for a secured and scalable connector for data ingestion.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Data Engineers.

CX Activations

Description for Group of Conditions

You can now enter a description for a group of conditions on the Segmentation canvas.

You can add notes for segments at a more granular level to help users understand what each group of conditions does.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Business Users.

Data Management

Encryption for Data Exports to Secure FTP Servers

When configuring destinations, you have the option of encrypting CSV files that are exported to Secure FTP servers.

You can export data files more securely by leveraging the encryption capability. This feature protects and defends data that is in transit by encrypting data prior to transmission.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Data Engineers. 

Lookup for Attributes

You can easily enable and disable Lookup from the Data model page. For attributes with lookup enabled, you can select values from the drop-down list instead of having to enter values manually. You can leverage this feature for attribute values in the Data viewer and on the Segmentation canvas.

You no longer need to depend on APIs to enable lookup for attributes. 

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Data Engineers.

Near Real-Time Ingestion API

The new Near Real-Time Ingestion API allows you to send data from your source system to the Unity data model by streaming in data directly into data warehouse objects. After importing data with this API, you don't need to run the data warehouse job to access the data. 

This new API gives you the fastest path to import time-sensitive data, such as the following: 

  • Profile information updates
  • Event registrations
  • Purchases and orders
  • Product inquiries
  • Transaction data

After importing this data into the data model, you can then leverage it to create segments for use in campaign management. 

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Role Information

This role is available to Data Engineers. 

Publishing Full Tenant from UI

You can now perform a full publish for the Unity tenant directly from the Unity user interface.

You no longer have to depend on the Oracle Unity on-boarding support team to perform a full publish.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Data Masters.
