Changing My Lab

As we continue to see more inroads made by cloud and SaaS technology, I have to admit to a downside...what can I work with in my local lab.

My local lab consists of two iMacs, an Apple Airbook, several arrays of 1-TB external hard drives from OWC, and a serious effort in leveraging virtual machines (I'm personally a VMware fan).  It wasn't too long ago that I could run most Oracle technology on my little lab platform.  And I like it that way...I prefer to have total control over all my prototyping and development environments.

Announcing RapidSR for Oracle Payables: Automated Troubleshooting (AT)

What's New?
Customers are now able to create an accounting SR, upload the Master GDF diagnostic, and have the system automatically analyze the MGD output and update the SR with a solution summary.  In most situations we anticipate this to be much faster than waiting for an engineer to pick up and process the SR.  We call it RapidSR because it is FAST!

About User Groups

I'm hanging out in the middle of nowhere this week...Fort Riley, Kansas.  Here to visit my granddaughters.  Which means I'm missing ODTUG's KScope14 conference.  Missed the OAUG/Quest/IOUG Collaborate14 this year as well.  Will also be absent at OAUG's ConnectionPoint14 in Pittsburgh.  Will be missing a few others that are usually on my calendar as well (But I made it to UTOUG Training Days, Alliance14, and the MidAtlantic HEUG conference - will also make it to the ECOAUG later this year).

Journal Lines Reconciliation - What's Different in Release12?

General Ledger Reconciliation feature allows accounting users to reconcile transactions for accounts that should balance to zero, cross-referencing such transactions with each-other through reconciliation references. Either Manual or Automatic, using references from GL or Subledgers, including complete accounting code combinations or just the natural account segment value, when the balance for a group of transactions is zero the transactions are marked as reconciled.
