    End-to-End Hadoop Development Using OBIEE, ODI, and Oracle Big Data
    Mark Rittman,
    Rittman Mead

    In this session we’ll look at how developers can build solutions on the Hadoop platform using Oracle’s data integration and Hadoop platform tools, transforming and processing data using ODI, Oracle Big Data SQL and Oracle Big Data Discovery. We’ll look at options to present the output from your processing to users in the form of OBIEE dashboards and data visualisations, and techniques you can use in your development to maximise your usage of Hadoop features and ensure your solution scales-up as the size of your Hadoop cluster grows.

    Unify Financial Reporting Processes with Oracle’s Hyperion Tax Provision Solution
    Fran Burns and Raj Chaudhury, SC&H Group

    The corporate tax provision process often remains a challenge for many corporations. Tax departments struggle to obtain the timely data they need to support their calculations. Most processes are also characterized by an over-reliance on Excel, which creates inefficiencies and increases risk.
    A tax provision solution that is more closely aligned and integrated with the broader financial reporting process can make a profound difference in a tax function’s ability to meet its deliverables as part of the close process. Please join SC&H Group for an informative webinar on Oracle’s Hyperion Tax Provision, a first-of-its-kind tax reporting solution that integrates directly with Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and the broader financial consolidation and reporting process as an essential component in closing the loop in the financial close.
    During this webinar, experts will reveal critical insights into how Hyperion Tax Provision, together with HFM, can help your organization:

    • Improve efficiency through integration of data with HFM and the source general ledger systems
    • Automate the assignment of temporary and permanent differences within an easy-to-use graphical interface
    • Leverage a comprehensive suite of pre-built tax reports to support the consolidated tax provision, including the tax disclosure footnotes.
    • Align common data sets that are used to support both the financial reporting and tax provision processes
    • Reduce the complexity of the state apportionment data collection and calculation process
    • Improve the visibility and audit trail that are essential to the tax preparation process and compliance

    SC&H Group’s Oracle-Hyperion EPM and Corporate Tax consulting professionals deliver proven solutions. Our experts simplify the complex tax provision and financial consolidation/reporting process by effectively implementing Oracle’s Financial Close Suite. This includes HFM, Hyperion Financial Close Management, and Hyperion Tax Provision.

    Register now to learn how this solution integrates directly with the broader financial close process, and how it can work to enhance your organization’s reporting transparency and solve your data challenges.

    The Tie That Binds: An Introduction to ADF Bindings
    Peter Koletzke, Quovera

    Connecting data from a data source in user interface components on a webpage was previously a difficult task, but ADF offers an easy way to do it: ADF Bindings. This presentation briefly reviews where ADF Model (ADFm) fits in ADF development and how ADF bindings allow you to quickly connect a user interface page to business services such as ADF Business Components. The presentation provides details and shows examples of how ADF bindings work, how to automatically bind data elements to visual elements, what types of bindings are available, and where binding code appears. It also explains the basics of the expression language used to bind model layer components to view layer components and gives an example of how to manipulate bindings programmatically.
