Financials | Introducing Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence for Financials


[music] Hello my name is Tanya. This video is the first in a series of tutorials on Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence for Financials. In this tutorial, I’ll introduce you to how the Financials applications use Transactional Business Intelligence, which is a tool for creating analyses, dashboards, and infolets. Let’s start at the Financial Reporting Center, the one-stop location for all of your financial reporting needs. I’m going to take a closer look at the Payables Aging Summary Analysis. These details show that it’s an analysis. And here’s the location where the analysis is stored. Now I’ll open the report. The information in an analysis is real time, and based on the latest transaction information. You can use different visualizations, or views in your analyses, like time series lines, bars, tables, and heat maps. A single analysis can even use different types of views to help structure information in a way that’s useful for your audience. This aging analysis displays bars and a table. And I can drill to the details from both types of views. Let’s drill from one of the bars. Here’s a table with the invoice details. I can switch to a different aging bucket without having to navigate back to the summary. If I want to edit this analysis, I can find it in the directory where it is stored. I can make my changes here. When I’m finished, I can save my changes in the same location or save them in another area that’s designated for my reports that I have access to. I can also create a new analysis from here. Future video tutorials on Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence for Financials will cover how to create graphs and tables. Thank you. [music]
