Procurement and Spend Analytics Integration with Projects in OBIA 7964

Oracle Analytical Application

As you know Oracle is continuously acquiring additional applications, one thing remains the same – pre-built analytics on Oracle’s BI Foundation. Oracle analytics apps family which Siebel started back in 2000/2001 has grown into 80+ analytical applications. The latest inclusion of Taleo and Right now analytics are the latest in the strong list. I still remember working on one of the first analytics application with big telecom company in London back in 2001.

Now we got number of Analytical Application, there is growing need on how to integrate these different analytics to maximize the cross field benefits. The most common request is around project analytics where customer would like to integrate project information with financial and spend/procurement data. Oracle has responded back by providing an option to integrate the Project Analytics with Procurement and Spend Analytics for Oracle EBS and Financial Analytics for Oracle EBS with OBIA 7964. Customer would have to pay some additional license fee J

This blog is an attempt to discuss the option of integrating Procurement and Spend Analytics of Oracle EBS with the Project Analytics data.

Oracle Project Analytics comes with an out-of-the box integration with Oracle Procurement and Spend Analytics. User can analyze the Project Commitments and historical procurement transactions (such as Requisitions from Projects and Purchase Orders associated with that) for a project. Additional configuration is required for integration for Procurement and Spend Analytics and Project Analytics modules for Oracle EBS.
