Course Description

Oracle’s latest home-grown application built on Fusion technology is Oracle’s bet for the future for enterprise applications in the cloud. Oracle has used the ‘best of’ its various applications it has bought (E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, etc.) and built in the design of this new cloud application. In this two-day class, we will look at the core elements of the application. We will review foundational principles such as the technical architecture, security model, role design, generic users, patching and change management, common elements, profile options, controls monitoring and reporting, audit policies, workflow issues, master data, and application controls.
