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.

Unity Customer Data Platform

CX Activations

Object Storage Outbound Connector

You can export data from Unity to Oracle Object Storage.

Oracle Object Storage is a more modern alternative to FTP connections with the following benefits:

  • It is faster, more scalable, and resides in the cloud. 
  • There is no need for a locally hosted server, reducing administration.
  • Native support for OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) Object Storage from Unity increases the delivery options you can chose from.

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. 

Data Management

Attribute Data Type Changes

You can convert the data type of attributes from string to text.

You can make the required updates to attributes that need to store data with a high number of characters. The string data type can store data with a limit of 500 characters, while the text data type can store data with a limit of 8000 characters. 

Steps to Enable

This feature is available if your instance is upgraded to the new data persistence layer of 21C.

Tips And Considerations

If your instance is on an earlier version than the data persistence layer of 21C, the string data type has no character limit and the text data type is not available. 

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Data engineers. 

Intelligence at Scale

Intelligence Workbench

The Intelligence workbench provides you with a new user experience when creating data science models. 

As you use the Intelligence workbench, you will see the following benefits:

  • The main Intelligence workbench page now provides more details on existing models. 
  • You have the option of selecting queries for model algorithms. 
  • You have the option of mapping algorithm outputs to the Unity data model. 

Steps to Enable

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

Tips And Considerations

The Intelligence workbench will replace the existing Data science models page. 

Key Resources

Role Information

This feature is available to Instance admins.
