Using Enterprise Command Center (ECC) for E-Business Suite 12.2

A few days ago, we received the good news from the Oracle E-Business Suite team, announcing the availability of Enterprise Command Centers for EBS, also known as ECC for short among a series of innovations including the new release 12.2.8. I’ve explore how to implement and configure ECC in this blogpost and in this entry I’ll be sharing how to use from a user perspective.

Getting to work Enterprise Command Center (ECC) for E-Business Suite 12.2

A few days ago, we received the good news from the Oracle E-Business Suite team, announcing the availability of Enterprise Command Centers for EBS, also known as ECC for short among a series of innovations including the new release 12.2.8.

I was interested in this new product since the first time that I heard about it at Muhannad Obeidat presentation back at Collaborate 2018. I had quite some experience implementing Endeca Extensions for EBS (also called Information Discovery for EBS) which was somehow expensive and in certain customers fairly complex to make it to work.

After multiple conversations about the product with Muhannad, Jeanne Lowell, and Nadia Bendjedou, I was impressed with the vision, the changes on the technology compared to Endeca and I was even more shocked hearing that they will be “unlocking the value of enterprise data” without any licensing costs. Yes, it is a product that will be free for E-Business Suite customers running release 12.2.4 and above.

Impressions from OOW11

After the notes when I just arrived on which was going to be the focus this year, I am shocked on the lots of people attending the event.

It was the first time ever seeing people outside the sessions trying to enter and security stopping them.

The keynote from Larry on Sunday was focused mainly on hardware. Exadata, Exalogic, and key words such as Parallel Everything, x times faster. He introduced the new Exalytics Business Intelligence Machine.

The main comparisons were to IBM

hey, you blue guys

and how Oracle Hardware runs faster than IBM’s. No words on Salesforce but we’re anxious waiting for Benioff’s speech on Wednesday at 10am to see what he has to say. Specially base on some tweets from Salesforce’s CEO saying that Larry’s was one of the worst Keynotes ever. Anyways, that’s the “showbiz” between CEOs besides the technology.

20111004-153249.jpgOn the other hand IT Convergence was presented as Oracle Fusion early adopter and we’re working hard to make it happen. After a meeting with a VP of Oracle’s Financials applications he confirmed that Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2 will be released within the next calendar year -not now as we expected- but some selected companies are joining the Early Adopter Program for that release which will bring big changes on the technology stack such as Weblogic!
IT Convergence started the contacts to become part of this program and we hope to provide an update in a few weeks.

Finally I delivered a presentation on Oracle Business Intelligence which had a full house, and even people standing at the back because there were no seats. The presentation went great and concluded with an applause which is great for the presenter. Thanks to everyone that attended and for those who are interested on the presentation, feel free to send me a PM on Twitter for a copy.

Now is time to continue attending sessions and learning all the options Oracle has to offer.
